Why is Bosweillia in our CBD Pain Salve?

posted in: Ingredients | 0

boswelliaIt might sound off to call Bosweillia the “next” anything, considering it has been part of Ayurvedic and other traditional medical systems for millennia. But in the current environment for herbal medicine, there are definitely currents that sweep up older botanicals into the world of research and into the news at the same time.

Boswellia is one of those herbs. Its unique attributes—especially its ability to inhibit 5-LOX inflammation, which most synthetic drugs can’t do safely— make it extremely worthy of attention. It modulates the body’s immune response to seasonal triggers, reduces asthma symptoms, and inhibits inflammatory gene expression.

It can help treat arthritis, joint disorders, and digestive diseases including irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) and colitis. In addition, it may also help stop the development of tumors and the spread of cancer.1-8

Inflammation’s insidious effects

Mention the word “inflammation” to most people, and their first thoughts will probably be aches and pains.

While that’s certainly pertinent to much of your practice, inflammation is implicated in virtually all diseases, from asthma to tumor formation.

For pain relief, Boswellia is an excellent partner to curcumin, which enhances its effectiveness at reducing the inflammatory damage of osteoarthritis.

In fact, a clinical study comparing the combination of the two herbal ingredients versus a generic celecoxib showed that nearly 65 percent of participants taking the natural compounds improved dramatically, versus 30 percent in the drug group.5

CBD For Skin Conditions: Scientific Studies

posted in: CBD Benefits | 0

   In September 2013 the British Journal of Pharmacology published a study, entitled Epigenetic Control of Skin Differentiation Genes by Phytocannabinoids. As part of this study three cannabinoids: cannabidiol (CBD), cannabigerol (CBG) and cannabidivarin (CBDV) were analyzed. In the published findings, which were characterized as “remarkable”, it was determined that “cannabidiol reduced keratin 10 mRNA through a type-1 cannabinoid (CB1) receptor-dependent mechanism.” This led to a conclusion that cannabinoids “(especially cannabidiol) have the potential to be lead compounds for the development of novel therapeutics for skin diseases.”

CBD For Skin Cancer

This 2013 study entitled Anticancer Activity of Anandamide in Human Cutaneous Melanoma Cells looked at how the endocannabinoid system might play a role in fighting cutaneous melanoma. The study concluded that: “these findings demonstrate that AEA induces cytotoxicity against human melanoma cells in the micromolar range of concentrations through a complex mechanism, which involves COX-2 and LOX-derived product synthesis and CB1 activation.”

CBD For Psoriasis

In 2007, this study sought to ascertain whether cannabinoids might engage with the cannabinoid receptors in skin, and therefore be beneficial for skin conditions such as psoriasis. The conclusion states that “cannabinoids inhibit keratinocyte proliferation, and therefore support a potential role for cannabinoids in the treatment of psoriasis.”

CBD For Pruritus

This 2006 study evaluated the effects of cannabinoids on Pruritus on 22 therapy-resistant pruritus patients. The research findings concluded the following: “In 14/22 patients a good antipruritic effect could be documented. The average reduction in itch was 86.4%. The therapy was well-tolerated by all patients; neither burning nor contact dermatitis was observed.”

CBD For Allergic Contact Dermatitis

This 2007 study entitled Attenuation of Allergic Contact Dermatitis through the Endocannabinoid System. Looking into how cannabinoid receptors in the skin affect allergic contact dermatitis, the study came to the conclusion that, “These results demonstrate a protective role of the endocannabinoid system in contact allergy in the skin and suggest a target for therapeutic intervention.”

Given how promising these recent scientific findings have been, it’s no wonder that many people suffering from various skin conditions are experimenting with cannabis products. For the truth is that existing treatment options have failed many patients, and it thus becomes common sense for patients to try a CBD/cannabis product – especially considering the absence of intoxication that comes from topical application.

Why Hasn’t Topical Cannabis Always Been Legal?

The reasons cited for keeping cannabis illegal are fatuous (and have proven disastrous to human health), but none of these fatuous “arguments” even apply to skin lotions – meaning the prohibition of cannabis skin care products is even more absurd and nonsensical.

Let’s go through the arguments one by one:

1. Cannabis gets you high.

Applying cannabis topically does not get you high.

2. Smoking cannabis is bad for your lungs.

Applying cannabis salve to your skin is not bad for your lungs.

3. Cannabis is addictive.

Applying topical cream to your skin is not addictive.

CBD For Skin Conditions: Conclusion

     CBD salves are finally appearing on online shelves. This is great news for anybody suffering from skin conditions. Not only is CBD salve proven to assist with skin conditions as diverse as psoriasis, dermatitis and skin cancer, but anecdotally people have reported CBD reducing the amount of dry skin, getting rid of warts, getting rid of rashes, even getting rid of fungal infections.

Essentially, therefore, if you have a skin problem of any kind, there is a high chance that CBD salves will help you, and possibly better than any other product on the market!
