Whether you think summer’s the most beautiful season, or if it’s not for you, here’s something that makes it better. It’s CBD! No surprise there. There’s no denying – there’s definitely something about the combination of summer + CBD that makes us feel super excited. While we love our CBD all year round, we think that the summer was made to be enjoyed with CBD! Let’s look ahead and we’ll give suggestions on using CBD for summer 2023, so you can make the most of it.
What to use and what not to use
Although this sounds pretty self-explanatory – summer is a period of extremely high temperatures. That means that you might need to make some changes to your CBD routine and introduce new products that you’ll be able to consume safely. You might love the sun, but CBD doesn’t – so make sure to keep all CBD products out of the sun. That’s especially important for gummies and cartridges.
The sun’s UV rays can do damage to CBD products as it breaks down some significant components inside CBD oil. It can cause leaking and melting of your CBD products (specifically cartridges and gummies). If you simply can’t go without these products, then you need to make sure that you place them into a cold, dark, and dry place so that you don’t damage the product and impair its potency.
Additionally, learning how to use CBD for the summer also means learning how to store it. Knowing what harms products can be helpful if you want to preserve the quality of CBD, making it last longer. That being said, try to avoid putting your CBD products in the sun as much as you possibly can. Also, do your best to keep the products closed at all times so that air or water won’t get inside.
These simple tips should prevent spoilage of the CBD inside your products and also prevent leaking or melting of CBD gummies and CBD cartridges.
CBD Skincare? Yes, please!
The sun sure feels like a blessing when we’re exposed to it, but it certainly dries the skin out and may even cause painful sunburns that are really the opposite of fun. All-natural products, such as CBD, can be of massive help to the skin barrier, especially when it’s slightly damaged from the sun’s UV rays. Enter CBD – the new aloe vera in the world of skincare to help reduce inflammation, heal the skin barrier, and soothe damaged skin!
CBD contains a long list of unique properties, such as its anti-inflammatory, anti-oxidant, and analgesic effect, among others. CBD is also well-known for fighting free radicals, which, if left to build up, cause the skin and body to age quicker than usual – so CBD really is your skin’s best buddy when summer comes around! If you’ve experienced a sunburn, using a mix of aloe vera and CBD oil could be a great combo!
