Psoriasis is an autoimmune system related condition that primarily affects the skin. Most people who have psoriasis will have to be resigned to living with the condition for the rest of their lives, since there is currently no known cure for it. Psoriasis occurs when the immune system mistakenly considers healthy skin cells as foreign invaders.The autoimmune system then sets about protecting the body from these “invaders”, causing the over production of skin in the area.
Some people believe that psoriasis patients may get relief from the itchiness and discomfort of the condition with judicious use of marijuana. As with most autoimmune system diseases, marijuana use can be beneficial during the recovery period as well.
