Everybody has a mother. Some of us are mothers. Others hope to be mothers one day. Mother’s Day is May 14. This hallmark holiday is one way to honor mothers and let them know how much we appreciate all they’ve done for us. Often we honor our mothers with gifts. Flowers. Candy. Jewelry. Brunch at a nice restaurant. But what about CBD topicals for Mom? These unique gifts are more than just a nice reminder that we’re thinking of her. They do so much more. “So,” you ask, “what do they do that’s special enough for my mom?”
A couple of weeks ago, my blog was about honoring Mother Earth with CBD topicals. Honoring mom on Mother’s Day with CBD health and beauty topicals that are free of chemicals and toxins are as good for Mom as they are for our Earth.
CBD has made quite a name for itself over the past years and with good reason.
What is CBD?
CBD, short for cannabidiol, is one of many compounds found in the cannabis plant. Unlike THC, also found in cannabis plants, CBD is nonpsychoactive, meaning it won’t get you high. We make our products at Lost Remedy with hemp-derived CBD. We also use full-spectrum CBD, which contains all the cannabinoids and terpenes hemp has to offer.
CBD health and beauty products for Mom
Products made with full-spectrum hemp oil (FSHO) offer the most benefits. That’s due, in large part, to the entourage effect. Entourage effect is when every component of the hemp oil works in synergy to provide what the body needs to heal with few, if any, side effects.
Tina Alster, M.D., clinical professor of dermatology at Georgetown University Medical Center in Washington, DC, says that in addition to being safe and easy to use, “Anti-inflammatory properties associated with CBD are beneficial in treating such dermatologic conditions as acne, psoriasis and eczema due to reduction of dryness, irritation and redness. CBD-containing creams, oils, gels and serums not only moisturize and soothe the skin but are also showing encouraging results in relieving pain caused by certain skin disorders.”
Why give Mom CBD topicals?
The beauty of CBD is its versatility. It’s a known anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, analgesic and antioxidant. The power of CBD can be associated with the endocannabinoid system, or ECS, present in everyone. The ECS is responsible for maintaining homeostasis, or balance in our bodies. CB receptors are found throughout the skin and the addition of a CBD topical can help promote healing and homeostasis.
The most obvious gift for Mom would be CBD beauty products. They’re a great way to moisturize and nourish your skin. Lost Remedy uses no toxic substances or chemicals in our topicals, just CBD, essential and carrier oils, which also help protect skin from environmental pollution and bacteria.
But, there’s good reason to consider health products as a Mother’s Day gift, too. Chronic pain, joint and muscle pain from overexertion or injury, arthritis pain and nerve pain respond well to CBD because of its anti-inflammatory properties. Minor injuries and wounds such as scrapes, cuts, lacerations seem to heal faster with CBD salve. CBD topicals for burns run the gamut of helping heal burns and sunburn as well as prevent burning during radiation treatment.
Moms overexert, get injured and may have conditions that a CBD topical could relieve. A big plus for using CBD to help treat conditions is that there have been few if any side effects, unlike most over-the-counter products.
This Mother’s Day, nothing says love more than a thoughtful gift that is person-centric and eco-friendly. Surprise Mom this year with CBD topicals.
