CBD is getting a lot of press these days. Even in states where medicinal marijuana is not yet legal, CBD products are, and people are flocking to buy them for whatever ails them. In case you have not heard yet, there are also CBD salves available. Here are three things that this salve can do for skin conditions that other salves cannot.
Skin that is raw and irritated from constant rubbing or chafing is immediately soothed and calmed within minutes of applying CBD salve. That is because the CBD oil in the salve is a natural anti-inflammatory, calming skin the minute it penetrates the pores. If the CBD salve is used every time your skin is irritated and red, you can reduce the frequency with which your skin becomes sensitive to known inflammatory agents.
Cure Dry Skin
Yes, most salves can cure dry skin, but CBD oil sinks deeper into the skin than the petroleum found in most other salves. What is more, your skin will not react negatively to the CBD oil because it is an all-natural oil. Petroleum oil in salves, on the other hand, is taken from the same crude product with which you get gas for your car and kerosene. The salve may penetrate the skin, but your skin also reacts to this harsh processed ingredient by trying to push the salve from its pores and close them off. In the long run, you will have to use a lot more of some other salves than you would if you just used the CBD variety. It is also excellent for certain dry skin conditions, such as eczema.
Can your old salve disinfect a wound? Better yet, can it disinfect without stinging pain? Even if you have a salve that disinfects, there is a good chance that it contains rubbing alcohol, which most definitely does not feel good when it hits an open cut. CBD will not sting but instead be very soothing, and it has known disinfectant properties. Apply your regular salve to a cut, and then apply salve containing CBD to see and feel the difference between the two. The salve with CBD is also more likely to heal faster and better than the salve with alcohol in it. It is something to consider when a child asks you to clean and disinfect a skinned knee, hand, or elbow with something that will not hurt or sting.
