Cannabis infused cconut oil for Psorisis?

Hello all,
So I developed the skin condition psorisis two years ago. Funnily enough this co-incided with me getting myself together health wise, cutting out junk, running, gym and stopping the three day partying. Auto immune illness does run in my maternal side of family.
Having never had anything like this before I can say I didnt anticipate the psychological effect of having a skin condition. It really gets me down, I have to cover up and to be honest I have struggled with it.

I also developed seborrehiec dermatitis on my face which was a double kick in the nuts (handsome lad that I am ) which seems to have been cleared up with steroid tablets and cream.
The psorisis is a different matter and it affects my legs quite badly but I also have smaller spots on my arms and body.
Herself suggested infused coconut oil. I have a batch of this already as I make cookies/brownies etc.

I have coconut oil for my cookies, and thinking would this be ok to apply in its natural form or should I melt it down and dab it on?
I am looking for people who have had good results with canna re skin conditions? I have been down the steriod road and dont think it is along term solution.... I have looked online too and come across a few posts.

Anyway long post, apologies.. Just hit some nice heavy indica extract this morning.. thank fk for isolation...

stay safe.............

I have a thread about Psoriasis here.

https://www.icmag.com/ic/showthread.php?threadid=357814

I 'm in remission due to Cannabis medicines which in part used Hemp Oil.
I also eat my Cannabis. Maybe 3/4 gram a day in cookies.

For me STRESS is a cause of the illness. What prompted your 'getting healthy and fit'? Maybe there was stress at an unconscious level?

And yes, the illness can be embarrassing! At my worst I was losing a half a cup of skin a day (like dandruff). My Doctor told me his Staff would complain every time I visited because they had to vacuum up the white powdery stuff I left behind where ever I went in his practice!

That doctor sounds like a dick. Why would he say that? That would make me not come back for sure.
I also started a thread like this for my father in law a year ago or so. He got some relief from a 20:1 cbd tincture or cream or some thing. I’ll look for the thread.

Thanks for the reply and for sharing the thread, really interesting. My lower leg is similar but not quite as extreme as in your photo. Yes, thinking back, I was going through a stressful time. The partying previous to all this got a bit out of control and myself and herself took a break so family break up for a while. I developed alopecia around that time and lost about 50% of the hair on my head, this is now in total remission.

I went pretty full on on the lifestyle change front at that time. I have since steadied off my exersize to normal gym workouts etc and no longer running and controlling carbs. I guess I just went for an extreme overhaul of my life - which had stress in it, and the big changes I made probably caused my body extreme stress. I went from partying, eating junk etc for decades to pretty much clean living, excessive running and working out and excessive diet control.
Partner often says I have ocd or adhd (which would fit in with a lot of my behaviors as a child/teen etc) but I have never been officially diagnosed. She also went on about me having orthorexia around this time. So you know when I think about it I have always went to extremes which now at my age are going to show somehow right?
At this stage, maybe two - three years since my overhaul my life is balanced, I keep fit but dont go to extremes anymore, I eat well, I hardly ever drink. But the immune response has happened and I know once that is triggered it can be hard to manage.
I am going to try the external infused coconut oil and ingesting which I do anyway. I dont want to go taking any more steriods but I probably will if my face breaks out again, after I try the canna. She is going on about yoga or meditation but not feeling that yet!
It is great you have had some success and sorry for shitty doctors comments. When my face was bad a few months ago I wore a hat the whole time and couldnt give anyone eye contact. I am usually a pretty straight up guy. It was pretty depressing.
Partner goes on and on about 'managing it' however it is hard to not just hope for an outright cure right.
stay safe.....

Thanks for your empathy. However my illness was 10 years ago now and Doc and I were reminiscing. He's a good guy. I haven't paid him money in years because he likes the Cannabis I grow!


When I was sick my Wife left me for a bed on the verandah (porch). Erythrodermic sufferers cannot control their body temperature and I was too hot to sleep beside. Ironically I was dressed in a woolly shirt, sweater, long johns and undershirt, track pants with a beanie on ... in the kitchen at 28C while my Wife was a grumpy and dealt with the warmth of the kitchen by getting nude.

So I was even ostracised at home!

Kidneys? Read Medscape, but other causes, as well. Several different types of psoriasis. Overactive immune system seems to be the link.

The cause of psoriasis isn't fully understood, but it's thought to be related to an immune system problem with T cells and other white blood cells, called neutrophils, in your body.

T cells normally travel through the body to defend against foreign substances, such as viruses or bacteria.

But if you have psoriasis, the T cells attack healthy skin cells by mistake, as if to heal a wound or to fight an infection.

Overactive T cells also trigger increased production of healthy skin cells, more T cells and other white blood cells, especially neutrophils. These travel into the skin causing redness and sometimes pus in pustular lesions. Dilated blood vessels in psoriasis-affected areas create warmth and redness in the skin lesions.

I got scalp psoriasis when I was 11 and it came and went seemingly randomly until at 50 I discovered it was caused by citrus fruits. I remember eating lots of oranges when it first started and I've always loved them. I can have one now and then now and I'm ok.

Well, I wonder if SuperX has kidney trouble? I 'm attracted to what S.O.G says re kidneys because I had a faulty one which required removal. I 've felt better and my Psoriasis has improved since kidney removal.
I think 'the sins of the Father' angle I touch on in my Erythrodermic thread is a possible factor. No one else in my broader Family has this illness.
A Doctor told me current Scientific thinking is that the normal process where a foetus develops nerves and skin one after the other (I don't know which is first) is affected somehow and manifests later on in life.

Relevant to this is that a recent Stress event saw me break out in Psoriatic Pustules. I was given this medicine which bored its way down to my very soul! It was a horrible experience. All my old injuries started to hurt again. My testes swelled largely and hurt like hell. I could not think. I felt un-human! After three tablets I stopped.

I found options to manage the cause of my Stress event and the pustules immediately began to dry up.


I 'm amazed that my Stress can alter my body so easily/quickly.
