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.
As the temperatures start to warm up it inspires us to get outside and move our bodies. We have to take it somewhat easy at the beginning or we risk pulled muscles, sprains or significant injuries that come from doing too much too soon.
Therefore, no matter how easy you exercise — there are small aches & pains that come with using muscles that may have been inactive for awhile. CBD has amazing anti-inflammatory properties that work so well on those sore muscles. Topicals come in many different forms: creams, salves, roll-ons, patches, oils and more. No matter which one you choose the purpose is the same: work on the targeted area that is causing you pain or stiffness.
Many CBD Topicals include additional healing ingredients such as the homeopathic remedy arnica montana or anti-inflammatory herbs like ginger and turmeric or essential oils that calm like lavender. When you are choosing the right product for you it helps to think about what consistency you like and if you want it to be scented or not. And, you will need to decide what potency you want to use which could vary from 100 mg to 1000 mg of CBD.
The great thing about the many CBD topical options is that you can use them as many times a day as needed to get you the relief you are seeking. It is great to have such a wide variety of choices because each person has their own preferences. Pair a topical with a CBD liquid or capsule and then you can address your pain both systemically and topically. Endocannabinoid System
