Surprising Ways You Can Use CBD Oil – CBD Instead

Surprising Ways You Can Use CBD Oil

Published on

Cannabis has been known to do amazing things like help people with PTSD have fewer flashbacks or help people with chronic pain sleep at night. But did you know that you can use CBD oil on a smaller scale and reap some pretty great rewards?

Bug Bites

Whether it’s spider bites or mosquito bites, pathogens are entering your bloodstream, and your body is attacking it. This is a good thing because it’s how it fights disease. Bug bites get so itchy because the immune system is sending immune cells down to the affected area to attack any microorganisms that could be a threat to your body. If you put CBD balm or salve on a bug bite, it may reduce the inflammation while still letting the immune cells work on keeping you safe.


Chapped Lips

Lack of moisture in the air and constantly licking your lips can make your lips chapped. CBD can help by protecting your skin cells from damage and promoting a healthy life cycle. It can also help with the burning sensation when your lips have gotten extremely chapped and encourage your lips to heal faster.


If you get a small cut, you can use CBD oil to disinfect it. Cannabis has shown in studies to be potent against bacteria that can normally outfight different types of medication. While it is helping fight off pathogens, it calms your immune system down to prevent swelling and encourages the cells to repair more quickly.


Problems with acne occur when your skin is producing too much oil. They have found that THC can encourage oil production creating an acne issue, but they found the opposite effect for CBD. CBD inhibits oil production when there is too much going on, but not to the point where it will dry out your skin. Another issue with ance that makes it so painful is inflammation, which CBD tackles easily.

Dry And Cracked Skin

Just like your lips, your skin can lack moisture. It can also have the opposite effect of people struggling with acne by not producing enough oil. Hemp oil helps soothe dry and cracked skin and helps it heal faster by making your skin cells healthy and strong. CBD oil also helps with the pain that is caused by your skin splitting from being so dry.

There are tons of ways to use CBD oil; it is such a diverse medicine. Check out our shop to see how you could be using cannabis today!
