Bug bites, skin rashes, poison ivy, allergies, bee stings and chlorine in pools are all challenging to having healthy skin. CBDA is the designation for CBD that has not been heated up. It is raw CBD and extremely helpful for any kind of inflammatory condition. You can ingest a liquid CBDA but for all of those skin challenges, you may also use a topical. Some topicals are full-spectrum — so you have many different options.
There are salves, creams, and roll-ons that offer CBD, essential oils, calendula, and other healing herbs. We have found that anytime we get a mosquito bite and use a CBD salve the redness and itching go away fairly quickly. If you’re someone who has allergies to certain plants, flowers or grasses then CBD may help reduce those allergies by taking both a liquid/gelcap and using a topical salve.
Chlorine in swimming pools is very harsh on one’s skin. Whether you use a topical salve or a liquid CBDA and put it directly on your skin, you will get some relief. The extreme heat we have experienced this summer can also have a negative impact on our skin. Using CBD soap can reduce the redness, swelling, and itchiness of heat rashes, eczema or poison ivy.
CBD is such a versatile supplement that helps to heal health issues that are both internal and external. Just another great example of the amazing hemp plant and what it offers our bodies.
