It’s Summer. Don’t forget our CBD Lotion!
Perfect for when you get TOO MUCH sun!
DISCLAIMER: The following is based on the author’s experience and should not be interpreted as making any claims about the products mentioned.
With Summer in full swing, a return to more normal summertime activities like golf, swimming and the beach, the risk of getting too much sun is all too real.
One of our most popular products has always been our embody CBD topical lotion. It’s exceptional. One of the very first products we developed, my personal goal was to provide some overall relief for my struggles with neuropathy. And I continue to use it every day. But I quickly discovered it has a myriad of other uses as well.
I’m naturally tan to begin with. Even when I don’t spend time in the sun, people always comment on my tan appearance. And because I’m naturally dark-complected, I tend to skip applying sunscreen even when I should.
Most of the time, that’s no problem. I simply tan darker. But on those rare occasions when I overdo sun exposure by a massive amount, I will burn.
A couple weeks ago, I had the pleasure of traveling to Lake Tahoe for a few days of vacation. The weather was spectacular and I took the gondola ride from the town up to the top of the ski slopes, some 10,000 feet in elevation. Even though I am well aware that UVA levels increase with altitude, frankly, I forgot about it in this instance and never applied any sunscreen.
At an altitude of 9,000 to 10,000 feet, UV radiation may be 35 to 45 percent more intense than at sea level, according to the Skin Cancer Foundation. So guess whose forehead and nose burned? Yup. So I slathered my face with our lotion from our handy Travel Size 2 oz bottle morning and night in the couple days following the gondola ride. And while I did ultimately see a bit of peeling, the pain and redness dissipated within a day.
Research indicates that CBD helps modulate the body’s inflammatory response by binding to the receptors, making CBD oil a popular tool for those managing soreness from exercise and other stresses. But from firsthand experience, I can tell you it works great for sunburn too!
So make sure you have some embody CBD topical lotion handy this summer. It’s available in 4 ounce, 8 ounce, and our handy 2 oz travel size, all at our newly-reduced pricing!
With all our best,
