With the recent interest in medical marijuana, research into cannabinoids is regaining wider attention. Cannabinoids are collectively a group of active compounds that can be produced by animals (endocannabinoids), plants (phytocannabinoids) or synthetically. By acting on a number of different receptors like cannabinoids receptors and transient receptor potential ion channel family, cannabinoids are known to modulate cutaneous inflammation, pain and itch. Rosacea is a highly prevalent disease and can be associated with a significant degree of morbidity associated with its symptom. Transient receptor potential ion channels are known to be triggered in rosacea and may underlie a portion of rosacea's pathophysiology. This article aims to detail the TRP channel pathways in rosacea and the known effects of cannabinoids on these pathways and further discussing the potential role of cannabinoids in treating rosacea.
