A couple of years ago, I fell asleep at the beach.
I slept for over three hours in direct sunlight. Even though I had applied sunscreen, I woke up with an extremely bad sunburn. A few hours after getting into the shade and applying aloe, I began to suffer from blisters, headache, nausea, chills, dehydration and fever. It hurt to touch my skin. I wasn’t sure how to treat my symptoms. The over-the-counter products available typically contain benzocaine, which I am allergic to. My husband suggested cannabis as a remedy. At first, I was skeptical. However, I did some research and found that CBD works as a potent anti-inflammatory and helps to reduce pain, itching and redness. Plus, CBD acts as an antibacterial and antioxidant, proving useful to combating potential infection. I found the website of a nearby recreational dispensary that includes delivery service. After setting up an account and providing my necessary information, I was able to check out different products and add my selections to my cart. They offer an amazing amount of options, including topicals and oils that contain both CBD and aloe vera. Along with alleviating my immediate symptoms, I continued to use CBD oil to help repair the dry and damaged skin. The oil contains Vitamin A and Vitamin E, which are also prevalent in many anti-aging and anti-scarring serums. It also includes fatty acids like omega 3 and omega 6 that are responsible for producing and protecting the skin’s natural oil barrier. Application of CBD oil helped my burned skin stay hydrated during recovery.
