The CBD Remedy That No One Is Talking About
You probably know CBD as a supposed miracle cure for anxiety, or aching muscles, or even acne-prone skin вЂ” but hereвЂ™s a hot tip: CBD for burns is a secret no one knows about. Yet. After checking in with doctors and cannabidiol experts alike, I feel confident in proclaiming this yet another summer of CBDвЂ¦ if only because your summer might involve some sunburn, and CBD might be able to help.
вЂњWe’ve heard from clients again and again that our CBD serum has eased burns of all kinds вЂ” from Cabo to curling irons,вЂќ Casey Georgeson, the founder of Saint Jane Beauty, tells The Zoe Report. The evidence is more than anecdotal. вЂњEarly research suggests CBD can alleviate many of the issues around sunburns, including redness and pain,вЂќ Georgeon says.
вЂњTopical forms of CBD are being used more frequently for wounds,вЂќ Dr. Ben Talei, a plastic surgeon and product formulator who works with CBD skincare, confirms in an email to TZR. He predicts CBD products will вЂњsoon play a larger role in treating burn and trauma patients.вЂќ Apparently, this burn-soothing function comes down to a substance known as linalool. Linalool is a terpene that also comes from cannabis, and is reported to enhance the anti-inflammatory effects of CBD, Dr. Talei says. And in combination with CBD, it may also help treat pain and anxiety. Cannabidiol is also full of antioxidants, like vitamins C and E, which help protect and heal skin from sun damage.
Another reason to reach for the CBD cream? Many CBD products include cooling ingredients, like peppermint, for a double dose of skin-soothing goodness. вЂњOur lotion has has been specifically formulated to cool and provide relief to skin,вЂќ Cindy Capobianco, the co-founder and president of Lord Jones, tells The Zoe Report. вЂњMany of our customers swear by our Lord Jones High CBD Formula Body Lotion when it comes to sunburn or use after a minor kitchen burn.вЂќ (The brandвЂ™s PR rep once told me that after she burned her hand on a curling iron, she nursed it back to health in a day with Lord Jones Royal Oil.)
To treat minor burns at home, Dr. Talei recommends a two-pronged approach: an oral supplement for pain, and a topical product for healing вЂ”В although topicals have been shown to ease pain and discomfort, too.
