CBD in the Sun

on Aug 01, 2018


With the UK bracing itself for what could be the hottest day of the year people are stocking up on all the necessities, from sun-cream to lilo's, people across the UK are getting ready to enjoy the sunshine. One thing everyone should have in their summer kit is CBD. CBD is a product extracted from the cannabis plant but does not have any psychoactive effects, meaning you won't get the euphoric high but instead you'll get a variety of health benefits over continued use. CBD has taken the world by storm with celebrities, athletes and members of the public using CBD products and sharing their stories about how it has positively impacted their lives. If you're interested in learning the basics behind CBD, you can find it hereWhat better way to enjoy life with CBD in the sun?

You know how it is, enjoying the sun catching a few rays and forgetting to put on sun screen or going to the beach and forgetting to apply more sun cream after going for a swim which means you have to enjoy the rest of the sunshine inside with an ice pack on your red raw skin. Sunburn occurs when your skin is over-exposed to the sun's harmful UV rays and your skin doesn't have enough time to react and protect itself. Your skin cells die when they are over-exposed, and your body reacts by flooding blood to the area which gives you that oh-so-attractive resemblance to Mr. Krabs 

The two main things to do when you get sunburnt is to reduce the inflammation and to keep the area well moisturised. If you don't keep the area moisturised, your skin is going to peel and unless you get that oddly satisfying feeling of peeling your skin off layer by layer, we don't recommend that you let it get to this point. Along with this it also slows down the healing process and at the end of the day, it's not very often we get this kind of weather, so you'll want to get back out there as soon as possible! 

Who knew CBD and sunburn go hand in hand? CBD has been proven to help with skin conditions such as acne and dry skin conditions as it contains elements that are incredibly beneficial to your skin, such as omega 3 and omega 6. But, the question remains; what is the connection between CBD and sunburn?  

CBD interacts with the pain and inflammation receptors in your body, making it no surprise that it is the perfect pairing for sunburn. Simply add a few drops to aloe-Vera and rub it into the affected area. The soothing agents in the aloe Vera team up with CBD's anti-inflammatory agent, giving you the ultimate sunburn relief. For maximum effects, you should apply it to your skin as often as needed, so you can get back out in the sunshine and enjoy yourself! But, it is a lesson learned and you should frequently apply sun cream to avoid it from happening again! 


It's never too late to get that summer body! CBD has been proven to promote the browning of body fat and giving you that extra energetic boost! When you exercise your body releases chemicals and hormones into your system. While hormones are vital for regulating functions such as your blood pressure and stress, when you work out your body releases more hormones and things such as cortisol into your bloodstream than usual. A study on CBD has shown that it can reduce stress hormones and cortisol levels in your blood stream, bringing your body back to balance from the inside out. 

CBD has recently been approved by WADA (the World Anti-Doping Agency) meaning that athletes can now use CBD as an extra boost and a post workout healing agent! You don't have to be participating in the Olympics to get the great results you want, and CBD is the way forward to achieving this. If you want to read more about CBD and sport you can find it here 

Let's face it, for a lot of people the good weather brings about allergies that have been dormant for the last few months, things like freshly cut grass could set off your allergies. Believe it or not, studies have shown that CBD addresses your immune systems response and controls the release of cells which decreases your immune systems inflammatory response. So, you can sit out in the garden and enjoy the sunshine without your allergies taking away all the fun! As if that wasn't enough you can now enjoy CBD in your food and drinks with CBD infused beer and chocolates to name a few products, so you can now enjoy a cold one with your friends or nibble on some chocolates out in the sunshine and still reap the variety of rewards that CBD has to offer!

You have to remember that you may not see dramatic results in the first few weeks of taking CBD as it is a long-term product but trust us over time you will begin to see the variety of results that CBD has to offer! So, the real question is what are you waiting for? Go buy some CBD now and get out and enjoy the sunshine!
