Cannabis comes from the cannabis plant. It contains close to four hundred natural compounds that act throughout the body with diverse medical benefits.
Cannabis is thought to interact with the endocannabinoid receptor system located throughout the body and responsible for overseeing metabolic regulation, pain, anxiety, immune response and bone growth.
Cannabis induces responses that are normally regulated by a group of naturally occurring ‘cannabis-like’ chemicals called endocannabinoids in our body.
The main part of cannabis responsible for its psychoactive properties is tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). However, Cannabis complex oil comes from a different species of the Cannabis plant and contains much lower concentrations of THC, bringing all the beneficial effects of cannabinoids (CBD) while reducing the psychoactive properties of TCH. The standard Cannabis species (regular hemp) plant has in fact been used for centuries to make rope, clothes, food, paper, plastics, etc.
Researchers believe that by acting on our endocannabinoid system, Cannabis may be useful in boosting our protective shield, slowing the rapid growth of keratinocytes (scaly & flaky skin) seen in psoriasis as well as reducing the severity of inflammation associated with autoimmune disorders like psoriasis.
DermaZor® harnesses the unique healing properties of Cannabis, alongside the clinically proven ingredients of Salicylic acid, Zinc and other natural essential oils and flower extracts, to improve the efficacy of psoriasis treatment.
