Why You Should Take CBD Oil Camping – CBD Instead

Why You Should Take CBD Oil Camping

Published on

Is it time for you to unplug? Camping is a great way to forget the world we live in and to submerge ourselves in the world around us. Leaving your job, social media, and TV behind you can fully appreciate the moment as you sit under the stars.

One thing you aren’t going to want to forget this next camping season is your CBD oil. Having it out in the wilderness isn’t just something that people who need it for their ailments should consider. It is also something that can come in handy for the rest of the population pitching tents in the wild.

Bug Bites

You can’t always predict the rain. After rain showers come mosquitos. There is also the chance of accidentally stepping in a bed of ants and don’t forget about the chiggers. These bug bites can ruin an entire camping trip whether it’s you continually itching or your friends and family constantly complaining. Using a CBD salve or pain relief spray can help reduce the inflammation in bug bites and help make the itching go away.

Sun Burn

It can be easy to get lost in the good times on the campground and forget to apply sunscreen. Sunburns are just another annoyance that can bring a camping trip down from the time of your life to just wanting to go home. CBD topicals can help relieve the pain while also helping to rid your skin of the free radicals that come from the sun’s UV rays.

Cleaning Cuts and Scrapes

It’s always a good idea to bring a first aid kit camping. CBD has antibacterial properties that can help sterilize bacteria that may be trying to enter from an open wound. The inflammation that makes the injury itch can also go down as well as the pain.

Help You Sleep

Is it your first time going camping? Do you get homesick or anxious about being away? The nerves you get from hearing every noise in the woods can make you stay up the whole night making you exhausted the next morning. Taking CBD oil can help ease your anxiety making you calmer while trying to rest your head. It also doesn’t make you groggy like sleeping medicine or alcohol would so you can be alert and awake in the middle of the night if something does happen.

Boost Of Energy

There is nothing like feeling groggy and needing civilization’s caffeine in the middle of the woods. Why not go with the theme and use a natural method for energy instead? CBD can help give you a boost of energy by raising your anandamide, making your metabolism more proficient, and reducing the stress and anxiety that tends to wear people out. Taking it at night may ensure a good night’s sleep, giving you more energy for the day to come.


What’s a camping trip without a campfire? If you happen to have an accident and get yourself a burn, if it’s extreme you should seek emergency care. If it is a less severe burn, using CBD topicals can help with the pain and inflammation.

Muscle Soreness

If you haven’t been away from your desk for quite some time, walking through the woods may take a more significant toll on your body than you planned for. Instead of spending the rest of the trip moaning and groaning, you can use a CBD gel which can make your muscles feel more relaxed and not hurt so much.  

Camping can be a great time, but you should always be prepared for mishaps. Having CBD on hand can have you ready for the minor annoyances that can make the trip go south quickly. Have you ever used CBD oil while camping before? We would love to hear about it in the comments!
