The cold winter season means spending time with loved ones, snow angels, cozy fires, warm socks, hot cocoa and holiday lights.

But ay, there’s the rub-

Cold air also brings cold and flu season, shoveling snow, seasonal affective disorder, and dryer air. This can cause flaky skin, and red patches, as well as more frequent flare-ups for issues such as eczema and psoriasis.  So instead of suffering through, why not dabble with something different, and potentially even more effective, with some CBD products

 

Dry skin

Often, the first sign of damage from cold weather appears on the skin—which makes sense, as it’s the part of us that’s most exposed to the elements. From basic dry, chapped skin and lips to truly challenging eczema and rosacea, skin conditions never hesitate to make themselves known. The cold weather, overused central heating and biting winds all conspire to dry out our skin and even—somewhat unexpectedly—cause acne flare-ups, by disrupting our natural oil production cycles.

CBD is naturally rich in fatty acids and emollients, like olive or almond oil. Therefore, it acts to soothe and hydrate skin. MTN CBD has topical creams and tinctures.

Remedi topical cream is a hemp-derived CBD topical cream. This is a full-spectrum product containing the full range of cannabinoids and terpenes from the hemp-derived CBD oil that is infused. Lab-tested every batch. Formulated in Denver, Colorado through rigorous research and development the blend absorbs quickly, soothing your symptoms almost immediately.

Seasonal Affective Disorder 

As mentioned in a previous blog, “Seasonal Depression” or the psychological disorder known as the seasonal affective disorder,  SAD or whatever you call it, experts estimate there are at least 10 million Americans  who experience it in its entirety.  It is an actual psychological disorder, a form of depression that is connected to the changes in the seasons. This generally occurs late fall through the winter months and subsides during spring and summer. Although it is not long term, it is reoccurring.

 

Common Cold

To a person with a cold, the term “common” can sound so unfair. Surely the pain and general woe a cold causes its victim is much worse than the name might suggest! But common it is; the viral ailment that strikes without warning and spreads like the plague. Sadly, there are no known cures for a cold, although zinc has been shown to lessen the duration for some sufferers.

The common cold is one instance where the old maxim “an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure” definitely holds true. And in this case, CBD can help: it has been shown to boost the immune system, which aids in fighting off infection. Further, if you acquire the dreaded virus, products like oral CBD sprays can help to target the pain and provide immediate relief.
