Therapeutic effects of cbd-enriched topical products in inflammatory skin diseases and cutaneous scars.

OBJECTIVE:

To investigate the therapeutic effect of CBD-topical administered on severe skin chronic diseases and/or on their outcome scars.

METHODS:

A spontaneous, anecdotal, retrospective study of 20 patients with two most frequent skin disorders: psoriasis (n: 5 patients), atopic dermatitis (n: 5) and resulting outcome scars (n: 10). The subjects were instructed to administer topical CBD-enriched topical to lesioned skin areas twice daily for three months treatment.

RESULTS:

Based on skin evaluations (hydration, TEWL, elasticity), clinical questionnaires (SCORAD, ADI, PASI), and supported by photographic data and investigators' clinical assessment, the results showed that topical treatment with CBD-enriched topical significantly improved the skin parameters, the symptoms and also the PASI index score. No irritant or allergic reactions were documented during the period treatment.

CONCLUSIONS:

The topical administration of CBD ointment, without any THC, is a safe and effective non-invasive alternative for improve the quality of life in patients with some skin disorders, especially on inflammatory background.
