Skin Conditions

The human body’s largest organ is skin. Most people realize that skin acts a waterproof, insulating shield, guarding the body against extremes of temperature, damaging sunlight, and harmful chemicals. However, one of skin’s subtleties include the continued release of antibacterial substances that prevent infection. Moreover, our skin can be viewed as a huge sensor that utilizes the Endocannabinoid System (ECS) for keeping the brain in touch with the outside world. A severe imbalance in the skin’s ECS can result in inflammation that is a common symptom in skin conditions such as: acne, dermatitis, psoriasis, seborrhea, and many more. Many of the current pharmaceuticals (i.e. retinoids, topical steroids and others) are used to treat these conditions utilize the ECS system in the skin. Many people are continually looking for an alternative, “natural,” and unconventional treatments to circumvent some of the common side effects of long-term use of pharmaceuticals.
