Everything You Need to Know About CBD Sunblock
Did you know that dermatologists recommend applying a water-resistant product with at least SPF 30 every day to block harmful UV rays? These rays damage the skin, cause sunburn, and increase your risk over time of developing skin cancer. Every time you’re in the sun, your skin is damaged. Sunscreen mutes the effect of this radiation, but doesn’t eliminate it. That’s where a CBD sunblock can help!
What is CBD sunblock?
Just as it sounds, CBD sunblock is a combination of sunscreen and CBD oil. Instead of applying two products to your body, you get the benefits of both in one. Sunscreen provides protection from the sun’s UV light and CBD aids in your skin’s healing and recovery.
How Do CBD Topicals Work?
Cannabis-infused topicals provide relief from a variety of skin, joint and muscle problems. By applying them directly to an affected area, you gain the benefits of either isolated CBD or THC and CBD in a full spectrum product. You’ll never feel “high” when using cannabis topicals
Both THC and CBD have been shown to have medicinal benefits and work by affecting neural receptors found all over the body including the skin. Most topicals come as salves/balms (cannabis infused into coconut oil and beeswax) or creams (infused into shea butter for example).
Cannabis topicals are great for promoting healing and reducing inflammation and pain.
Conditions Treated with Cannabis Topicals
Some conditions that people use cannabis topicals for include dermatitis, eczema, arthritis, sports injuries, muscle strain, headaches, neck tension and wound healing.
Why CBD Sunblock?
While the addition of CBD to sunscreen doesn’t improve your protection from UV rays, CBD increases the rate at which skin heals. This increased healing rate coupled with the power anti-cancer benefits of cannabis could reduce your risk of developing skin cancer.
