What Is Psoriasis?
If you have Psoriasis, you don’t need an introduction to it, you just know how painful and uncomfortable, and relentless it can be with seemingly nothing helping it except the occasional steroid cream which you can’t use often. Psoriasis is an inflammatory condition which affects the skin and sometimes the joints too. In the UK alone, they estimate 1.8 million people suffering from it although the real number could be much higher than that. As it affects the immune system, itchiness and inflammation are caused by an overactive immune system attacking its tissues. Hence its classification as an autoimmune disease or immune-mediated condition. For a healthy individual, skin cells regenerate and replace themselves every 21-28 days, but when you have psoriasis, this skin replacement speeds up every few days. The accumulation of this skin cell build-up makes them pile up on top of each other causing raised plaques.

The skin can look scaly, red, or dark coloured, but itchy and it doesn’t seem to go away completely. Sometimes or often, there are flare-ups when it’s worse than other times and can be triggered by stress, anxiety, medication, poor diet choices, injury, sugar intake and so on. Aside from discolouration of the skin, it cracks, easily bruises, and bleeds. Some may have dandruff on their scalp which is called scalp psoriasis, whilst others would have discoloured toenails and nail fungus. Nails can also detach from the nail beds and can become painful or bloody.
It Goes Unsaid But There Is An Emotional Symptom Of Psoriasis
We need to also talk about the emotional side of this condition. Many people feel distressed, hopeless, or anxious about their skin or condition which in turn can create more problems. If you feel the stress of dealing with your itchy skin or are unconfident about your appearance, another way of dealing with this is to take Cannabotech’s Relax drops.
What Causes Psoriasis?
Psoriasis causes can be stress, poor diet, overactive immune system, genetics, poor liver clearing, hormonal changes, increased number of T cells in the skin layers of the dermis and epidermis, vitamin D deficiency, infections, difficulty digesting certain nutrients like protein, just to name a few.
What Are The Natural Ways To Soothe My Psoriasis?
⦁ Reduce your stress
It’s easier to be said than done however stress does have a knock-on effect on your health and sleep. If you struggle with anxiety or are feeling overwhelmed then as above the Relax drops would be very beneficial. Just a few drops will ease your mind and lift the weights off your shoulders. If you are a bad sleeper or have interrupted sleep, the Beauty Sleep drops are another one how you can lull yourself into sleep and feel refreshed the next day.
⦁ Modulate your immune system (=bring it back to balance)
As psoriasis is an immune condition, it’s not difficult to see why focusing on your immune system and calming down an overactive immune system is crucial. If you are not on an immunosuppressant medicine, then it’s a great way to bring it back to balance. If you are using such medicine, please consult with your doctor first. In any event, if you are on medication, please seek the doctor's or GP’s advice first.
Cannbotech’s scientific research of the active ingredients leads us to use thousand of years’ worth of ancient Asian knowledge of the ingredients behind our Immunity products. The mushrooms, CBD, and zinc used there are all powerhouses of goodness and balance that are not working. The Vitamin D content in our immunity formulas is naturally occurring from the mushrooms despite not being mentioned on the packaging, we know that they positively impact your vitamin D intake. As a rule of thumb though, as there is vitamin D deficiency in psoriasis, it is always a good idea to test your levels and up your vitamin D if needed.
⦁ Reduce your inflammation
Lower sugar intake, eat probiotic-rich food (kefir, fermented foods, pickles), increase the number & colours of vegetables and fruit daily, increase water and hydration and increase what we call antioxidants in your diet. If you are not familiar with antioxidants, they fight free radicals. If you bite into an apple and it turns brown, it oxidises. Then you eat the apple and your consumed antioxidants will neutralise them. Generally speaking, all red, green, blue, orange, yellow, purple etc. coloured vegetables and fruit can be antioxidants. The darker the pigment, the more antioxidants they have. Clever, right
⦁ Apply And Take Natural-Based Products For Your Psoriasis
Cannabotech had formulated 2 products to use. One is topical – Nurture cream and the other one is to take internally – Nurture tablets. They are both designed to reduce stress and autoimmune mediators in your system and have immunomodulatory properties. They assist in healing your psoriasis and make you feel back to normal and comfortable.
External 28-Day Study Conducted On 120 Psoriasis Sufferers – The Results Are Remarkable
To prove our concept and the efficacy of the Nurture products, Cannabotech asked an external institute called Ayton Global Research to conduct a study on our behalf. The criteria were that the 120 participants all have redness, itchiness & psoriasis symptoms. The age range varied from 20 to 60+ years and it included 50% of males and 50% of females. The findings after 28 days of use were remarkable
Nurture Study Results
As a scientific company, we need to state the claims were validated by our 3rd party company, Ayton Global Research. 81% reported that their skin overall appearance is improved whilst 80% confirmed that their psoriasis is less painful. Redness was reduced by 76% whilst less itchy, less sore, and less inflamed were 78% each. 72-83% said that the cracked skin appears reduced. 63% told their joints to feel less painful. At Cannabotech, we are delighted and not surprised by the amazing findings.
As Ayton Concluded, The Efficacy Of The Nurture Products Are Proven
Some of the testimonials stated: “At first, I was sceptical of the benefits a tablet could have on my skin as I have traditionally stuck to creams in the past. But the combination of both in this instance has proved to be extremely effective. not only reducing itchiness and inflammation but drastically reducing the appearance and in some areas completely healing my skin back to its normal state. I am thoroughly impressed with these products. The cream is softly scented, and a small amount is enough to soothe itchiness and hydrate the skin leaving it feeling soft and supple rather than dry and flakey. The tablets were quite large but no bigger than some multivitamins. They worked in tandem with the cream, making the skin healthier as well as providing some additional benefits to hair and nails. Overall, this is a fantastic product that I would recommend to others as well as look to purchase in the future.”
Another one: “This cream has significantly eased the soreness caused by psoriasis on my joints and skin. My skin is less red and inflamed which has made me feel more confident in myself as well feeling less irritated and angry towards my skin. The cream is a lovely consistency, it smells divine and is easily absorbed by the skin. My psoriasis flakes were instantly soothed and appeared much calmer after the 4 weeks of use. After having used this now on my joints and skin and seeing the results it would be a cream I would continue using. It has been the best cream that I have used to date as it works reducing the pain caused and the overall look of the skin improved so I couldn't ask for anything better.”
In a conclusion, 75% would recommend the products: Nurture cream and Nurture tablets to friends and family.
Frequently Asked Questions
Is Psoriasis Contagious?
No, not at all. You can’t catch psoriasis-like you would catch a cold. It can’t be passed on from person to person and it can’t be spread across from a problematic area of the skin to a healthy area either.
