Remember: Do not ingest CBD topicals. They should be used externally only. If your skin symptoms have appeared suddenly or if they are very strong and painful, you should first consult your physician before using any supplements or salves. Don't use salves on open, bleeding wounds. Also, do not apply CBD topicals if you are pregnant, lactating, or suffering from a serious illness.
In addition to pain, CBD topicals can also treat mild skin irritations, such as scratches, abrasions, burns, bug bites, and even stretch marks. And it’s also been clinically proven to treat inflammation-related skin conditions like acne. This is due to the fact that it’s a natural anti-inflammatory. It also displays some notable antibacterial properties.
Earlier this month, a woman from Atlanta, Georgia claims she lost a job opportunity because a pre-employment drug screen discovered THC metabolites coursing through her veins. But how could this be? She didn’t have a history of marijuana use. The only thing even remotely close to marijuana she consumed before the test was the CBD oil her doctor recommended as a way for her to combat anxiety and pain.
