Treating my Psoriasis with Cannabis Oil

78 posts in this topic

Over the next month or so I will be attempting to treat my Psoriasis with cannabis oil.

@@Graywolf has a recipe for their Holy Anointing Oil
http://skunkpharmresearch.com/holy-anointing-oil-and-holy-shit/

Thought I'd give it a try.

I have all the ingredients, as follows:

BHO Cannabis oil
Coconut oil
Cinnamon Bark oil
Cinnamon Leaf oil .
Myrrh Gum
Emu oil

I'll be following the recipe and I am keen to do this properly to find out for certain:

- if the oil works?
- & if it does work, is it because of the cannabis?

I will be making 2 types of oil and applying one to my left knee and one to my right. As I am lucky enough to have Psoriasis on both knees this will ensure a fair test. :yahoo:

Polite note:
I know everyone is keen to help, thanks, but I am not looking for advice on general treatments for psoriasis, this thread is intended to be about cannabis oil and whether or not it works as a topical to treat psoriasis. I appreciate it's always meant well but honestly I've had Psoriasis for well over a decade and believe me I have been there, done it, got the T-Shirt and wore it to town.
However, if anyone has any input on this technique or similar, or can offer any help, advice or guidance on topical cannabis oil generally, I'd really love to hear it. Thanks.


So, for the cannabis oil I have the some Blues, its dried bud and in jars. I'll be turning it into BHO in the next few days.

To start with, here is a pic of my knees; i've hidden the pic under the spoiler as I know its not for everyone:

I will be treating my left knee with cannabis oil and my right knee with the control oil (basically everything but the BHO, and a little extra coconut oil to keep the cinnamon oils dilute).

What am I hoping for?

I guess I'm looking to find out if this stuff works, and if it does I'll be keen to help share the info, in fact i'll be shouting it from the rooftops. Having previously worked pretty closely with a regional dermatology unit helping to try out different ointments, I would have thought that any information about an effective treatment should be very well received, regardless of the ingredients. If it doesn't work, then that would be nice to know too.

I plan on getting the stuff made up by the weekend, so I can start treatment on the 1st September.

I'll try to post up how I get on.

All the best with this mate fair play :yep:

The power of canna is remarkable !

@@FARMER G thanks man, yeah I used to have it a lot worse but I had PUVA treatment again earlier in the year, which shrinks it right down and some bits totally disappear, but sadly its only temporary.

I wish your mum well its not nice to have. If she isn't against trying it then why not give it a crack G? See how it goes. Cheers I appreciate your comments & encouragement mate :yep:

I have psoriasis was chronic until my early 20's when it's largely gone away apart from small spots on the elbows and knees. It corresponds with when I started smoking cannabis I do wonder if the 2 are related.

The best thing I found for Psoriasis was getting in the sun, when I was a child I had sunbed treatment at the hospital (A different UV wavelength to a tanning bed) and that was by far the most effect treatment I ever had I went from over 200 patches to 0 in 4 weeks with the sunbed treatment combined with some horrid brown cream which stank.

Very interesting. Its good to see cannabis being used as a topical ointment for skin conditions as well as the conventional smoking and ingesting...

I'll be following this thread closely for your experiment results. ATB mate.

As the postman didn't bring the myrrh gum oil this morning (only bills lol ) I wont be able to make the oil until it arrives Mon / Tue next week.

No harm done, I can get the BHO made and then at least that's ready to go.

Just need to scrape it up now, not sure how much is there yet.

Cheers Johnny, hopefully it will help :yes: we'll see.

After scraping it up I decarboxylated the oil by heating the jar gently on a hotplate and lightly stirring the BHO for 40 mins or so. Not really sure if that's long enough but the bubbles stopped rising & it looks ok to me I guess.

All the ingredients have now arrived, I'll be tracking down some scales today so I can make this stuff up using the right measures.

Hopefully I can get this made & ready to apply for later today, luckily I work from home so should get a chance at some point today.
