As stated in the 1997 Baz Luhrmann’s spoken-word sensation, “Everybody’s Free To Wear Sunscreen,” it’s highly important not to forget such cream. Strong sun rays on unprotected skin can be as dangerous as a pack of cigarettes. Now, in what seems like an unending slew of usefulness, CBD is being incorporated into sunscreens for more than just the buzzword.

Aside from being a skin friendly carrier oil, CBD also has anti-inflammatory properties, which keeps skin from becoming inflamed by the sun. Of course CBD is working in conjunction with zinc oxide, and they seem to make a mighty team. Cannabinoid alchemists everywhere seem to be infusing sunscreen with CBD.

In one example, NeuCana has developed a whole flower CBD potion intended for one’s delicate facial tissue. With 360 milligrams of CBD in every bottle, the cannabinoids work in conjunction with non-nano zinc oxide to provide protection. The only rub of it is that it need be reapplied every 45 minutes. An inconvenience that may not suit the flow of everyone’s day.

“We create products for the sun loving, tree hugging festival fairies,” states the website of Felix & Ambrosia, the creators of Sunny Daze Glitter Sunscreen with CBD oil. Meant for millenials in particular, this CBD sporting sunblock is a fashion statement physically, politically and botanically. This is a fun choice for festival goers and those who bare their skin, loud and proud, during the warmer months.

On a more practical note, Cannabios Hemp Sunscreen has an SPF of 50+ and comes in fairly plain, affordable bottles. Made with rosemary essential oils, the website explains that the savory, bushy herb contributes to the skin protection against harmful rays and reminds readers and potential purchasers that sunscreen is useful year round.

In every good life, there’s bound to be a time when some sunny day activities arise and you don’t have time to grab the sunscreen. Rather than scolding yourself after a good time, treat yourself to the ultimate relief with the CBD infused, aloe vera based Lost Remedy’s Burn Formula. With tea tree and olive oil enhancing the experience, your reddened epidermis will thank you on contact.

Just remember the sage opening words of Baz Luhrmann’s Sunscreen speech this summer, and yes, year round, “If I could offer you only one tip for the future, sunscreen would be it. The long term benefits of sunscreen have been proven by scientists…” As have the many benefits of CBD. Together they’re a soup and a sandwich.
