CBD, also known as cannabidiol, is extracted from the cannabis plant and makes up 40% of the plant’s extract without the psychoactive properties of THC. CBD is widely known as a natural way to reduce anxiety, limit stress, and treat depression. While CBD’s long-term benefits have increased the popularity of its use, CBD oil can also be used on an everyday basis as a remedy to common ailments. CBD can treat pain, skin problems, and more. While all of our products contain CBD, most remedies are topical or ingested, so CBD oil and CBD-infused balms are the best forms for the most potent remedy.
Earaches can be a chronic condition, but it can also be caused by sleeping positions, grinding your teeth, or as a symptom of a larger illness such as a sinus infection. Instead of taking an NSAID or trying a wacky remedy (who wants to put olive oil in their ear?!), CBD oil can ease or eliminate the pain. By taking CBD oil orally, the pain caused by earaches can be subdued by the anti-inflammatory properties of CBD. Just put some CBD oil under your tongue, wait 30-60 seconds, and swallow. You can buy CBD oil to take orally on our site, including flavored CBD oils like Koi Blue Raspberry or Koi Strawberry Milkshake, which comes in four options for your strength preference.
The Pain of Sprains
While you should absolutely see a doctor for any sprain or fracture, CBD oil can be part of the remedy that gets you back on your feet. Instead of taking an Advil, you can reduce the inflammation of your ankle or wrist sprain with CBD oil. CBD contains anti-inflammatory properties that can bring down the swelling of your sprain or twisted joints. Ibuprofen products like Advil and Motrin are commonly taken for pain relief, but they come with side effects, including nausea, dizziness, and even stomach bleeding. CBD oil can provide relief without the risks that come with taking NSAIDs. You can use CBD oil two ways when treating a sprain: orally or topically. For most of the pain, you can take an oral dosage of CBD oil, but for reducing inflammation, a topical balm, cream, or spray is recommended. Try Moon Mother CBD Muscle Balm or CBD HMU Pain Eraser Spray to apply right on your skin! These topical CBD products can be absorbed into the skin to calm down the white blood cells, which reduces inflammation without stopping the healing process.
Drift off to Sleep
We’ve all been there – you’re up late, on your phone for too long, mind reeling, and all of a sudden, its way past your bedtime. Instead of watching the minutes tick closer and closer to your alarm, you could take CBD oil to drift off to sleep. Taking CBD oil orally before bed can provide quality sleep, allowing you to reach full REM cycles and less sleepiness during the day. If you believe the root problem of your insomnia is less of a physical one and more a mental issue, the anti-anxiety and anti-stress qualities of our CBD products can help quiet your mind so you can get some rest. You can also buy CBD infused sleep balm like Moon Mother Dream Balm which has a calming smell along with soothing CBD properties. Learn more about the sleep benefits of CBD oil here.
Clear Your Skin, Not Your Wallet
Skincare is a multi-billion-dollar industry. Some skin care products cost hundreds of dollars, and we have to buy multiple for our skin in hopes it will help one blemish. Why are we wasting our money on lab-created chemicals that might work, instead of taking a more natural route, like a plant extract? Move over, expensive face treatments, because CBD oil is the affordable, natural path to clear skin. One common cause of acne is an overproduction of sebum, which is an oily secretion in the skin that clogs pores. We know what you’re thinking, why would you use more oil to treat excessive oil? CBD oil specifically targets the sebaceous glands in your skin, to prevent them from excessive sebum production. That means by ditching your current skincare to buy CBD products, your pores won’t be clogged, and you didn’t empty the bank on skincare! You can topically apply CBD oil with our products, like the unscented Moon Mother Hemp Oil. If hormones cause your acne, CBD oil’s anti-inflammatory properties can eliminate the appearance (and pain) of your blemishes.
Turn Back the Clock
Beginning an anti-aging regimen doesn’t start with fine lines. Polls show that the age of introducing of anti-aging creams and serums into routines begins with twenty-somethings. These products are used to battle extrinsic aging, which is the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, dullness, and age spots by environmental factors. These environmental factors can include UV rays and pollutants, and the only way to prevent your skin from extrinsic aging is with an antioxidant. That’s why skincare lines promote the use of Vitamin C and E in most of their products - due to their antioxidant properties. What aren’t the labels on those expensive anti-aging products telling you? Studies suggest that CBD could have more powerful antioxidant properties than either of those vitamins. Maintain smooth, wrinkle-free skin by topically applying CBD oil or any of our CBD-infused skincare products. When looking to buy CBD products for anti-aging, we recommend Moon Mother Glow Oil for dewy, youthful skin.
Soothe Your Psoriasis
Skin care doesn’t end with acne and anti-aging, as more than eight million Americans have psoriasis. According to the National Psoriasis Foundation, the average topical cream to treat psoriasis can cost $500 to $600 a tube, with light therapy treatment costing $600 a month. Psoriasis patients can replace their expensive creams for topical CBD oils without forfeiting potency. CBD oil’s anti-inflammatory qualities can reduce itching, which leads to less inflamed psoriasis. But the itchy, flaky skin that comes with psoriasis isn’t just a cosmetic symptom. Psoriasis stems from rapid cell growth, which pushes both dead and living skin cells to the surface, creating enflamed patches of skin. CBD oil has been proven to slow cell growth, which could potentially halt the symptoms of psoriasis. Slowing cell growth is the main goal in those $600 topical creams, but you can achieve it for a more affordable price with one of our CBD products. We suggest trying the Endoca Hemp Whipped Body Butter for full body application.
CBD oil can reduce itchiness in skin, which means it can serve as a great topical treatment for bug bites. With summer right around the corner, avoid the chemical smell of most bite soothing sprays and choose CBD oil instead. You can buy CBD oil in a spray bottle for the perfect way to treat your irritated skin. The combination of the anti-inflammatory and anti-itch properties of CBD oil can also treat your sunburn. Apply any oil or use a topical balm like Lazarus Naturals Soothing Mint Balm to help heal your sunburn so you can get back to enjoying the nice weather – without the pain.
Self-Treat Scrapes & Burns
The combination of anti-inflammatory, pain reducing, antioxidant, antibacterial, and skin-safe properties of CBD all suggest you need a CBD product in your medicine cabinet to treat scrapes and burns. While a serious burn should be checked out by a doctor, CBD oil can soothe a scrape or minor burn without causing any more irritation. You can buy CBD infused products like Moon Mother Heal All CBD Skin Balm, which contain the perfect combination of CBD, jojoba oil, and cocoa butter to ease scrapes and burns, while also nourishing your skin.
