Cannabinoids and Dermal Health...
It has been relatively well established that eczema and psoriasis respond well when treated with Hemp Oils. Cannabinoids, are almost exclusively found in cannabis, and they too have been demonstrated to have significant effect on most chronic of skin conditions. Cannabinoids are well-known to have a role to play in regulating inflammation, and it appears that this may be the key to their ability to treat eczema and psoriasis.
Cannabinoids, Terpenes and Flavonoids have regenerative effects on body tissue. Stopping the progression of skin sores while repairing and protecting the skin from herpes simplex, fever blisters, eczema, psoriasis, acne, hemorrhoids, dandruff, from dry chapped skin and any condition up to third degree burns.
Now, recent research has indicated that the skin also has an Endocannabinoid system of its own, which helps to regulate the production of various hormones and proteins (including cytokine, which is also involved in immune response), as well as various cellular process including proliferation, differentiation, and apoptosis (cell death). A study published in 2007 demonstrated that THC, CBD, CBN, CBG and Anandamide all demonstrated some level of effectiveness in inhibiting Keratinocyte production in the epidermis; as over-production of Keratinocytes is involved in psoriasis, these results support further investigation into cannabinoid therapies to treat it. Cannabinoid receptors have been found in even the smallest nerve fibers controlling hair follicles; keratinocytes have also been shown to bind and metabolize anandamide the most prolific endocannabinoid.
Regenerates & Energizes The Skin’s Protective Layer
Hempseed Oil is 80% essential fatty acids, mostly omegas 6 and 3, which make it the optimal nutrition and moisture protection for the layers of the skin, which is our largest organ. Due to its high content of omega 6 and omega 3 fatty acids, hemp oil has a composition similar to skin lipids, which makes it an excellent natural emollient and moisturizer. It is especially useful for dry, tired or dehydrated skin, hair and nails. It increases the skin elasticity and water retention capacity in tissues. It is a poly unsaturated fat, with long molecule chains that enable it to penetrate the epidermis, dermis, and subcutaneous layers of the skin and deliver medicine locally.

Spirulina facilitates faster cell turnover that helps skin heal faster. It wards off free radicals and eliminates toxins from the skin to increase skin metabolism. It also prevents candida overgrowth that can cause acne breakouts.
Spirulina contains tyrosine, vitamin E or tocopherol, and selenium, all of which are known for their anti-ageing effects. Tyrosine slows down the ageing of skin cells. The antioxidants present in it eliminate free radicals which are responsible for skin ageing
