How can medical cannabis help with Dermatological conditions?
Dermatology is a branch of medicine that deals with conditions relating to the skin. There are a variety of different fields within this brand, including cosmetic dermatology, paediatric dermatology, and the treatment of skin cancer.
Dermatology includes both skin complaints caused by a medical condition and procedures to improve the aesthetic appearance of the skin. These are classified as ‘medical need/emergency’ and ‘elective’ (lifestyle choice). Sometimes there can be overlaps between the two. Both forms of conditions and treatment are equally valid.
Depending on the specialism, there are dozens of dermatological conditions that may need treatment. They each come with their own range of symptoms and can affect the sufferer’s quality of life from a mild to a severe degree.
How we can help
When traditional forms of treatment provide little to no relief, medical cannabis can be an alternative route to investigate. In Canada, there are already several approved uses of medical cannabis relating to dermatology, including psoriasis, lupus, and chronic pain relating to a variety of dermatological conditions.
In addition, there are early indications from a Canadian study that medical cannabis may be helpful in treating conditions such as acne, dermatitis, pruritus, wound healing, and skin cancer.
