Eczema comes in different forms, but the biggest problem is that it doesn’t have a “cure”. No matter what form of eczema you have, you will most likely live with it for the rest of your life. Doctors may try different solutions, but there has only been one thing that has ever helped my eczema. And that was a CBD balm.
Yup, you read that right. Medical marijuana has been around for a while, but usually, it needed to be smoked. But not this time around. They have been working on different formulas to help people where they need it most and I have finally found the only thing that has ever made my eczema better.
*I am not a doctor, pharmacist, or a medical professional. I am just a human being who has pains and finally found something that worked wonders for me and wanted to share what I have found for you.*
CBD for Eczema?
At one point my eczema started to get really bad again and I finally decided to branch out to find something to help with the pain and itchiness of my skin. My fiance found out about this CBD balm that targeted pain and inflammation and we decided to try it out since nothing else helped me.
Now don’t think that I didn’t try much because I was actually born with head to toe eczema and my entire life my body hated me in the summer and definitely in the winter. I would always end up at the doctor’s office trying to find a new solution and lotion after lotion, medical cream after medical cream, and nothing worked. I tried for 18 years to figure out what I could do to not feel so itchy that if felt like something was crawling under my skin and to heal my skin for the winter without it cracking open to bleed every week to even every day.
I did end up giving up for almost 4 years about finding something to help me and just lived with it because I thought it was just pointless. So, after my fiance wanted to do something about it to make me feel better we tried this amazing CBD balm. It is by Papa & Barkley and the dose that I always use is their 3:1 Releaf Balm Targeted Topical Relief.
BEST relief I have EVER had for my eczema!
I can put it on once every 2 weeks or more and my skin is still free of pain. I don’t feel itchy anymore and if I ever start feeling itchy I just put on a small amount more and I am set for a while. It even works within minutes to make you feel so much better.
My type of eczema is the most common the atopic type, but I have a very close friend who has the form that creates giant patches that itch so badly and become open wounds easily. After finding out how well it worked for me I had my friend try it and within minutes it no longer itched one bit. And within 2 days the entire patch cleared up.
It cleared up! The best feeling they ever had!
What is Papa & Barkley’s?
Papa & Barkley is a company that created a few lines of CBD and THC products to help people in pain. It all started when this son wanted to ease his own father’s back pain that sent him into hospice. He then created the Releaf line that this balm is from and actually got his father off of hospice and back home because of these products.
The company cares about people’s pain and finding a solution for it. They created different formulas for different types of pain and they really work. Right now they are only in California, but hopefully, they will start branching out into other states as well. This is their website if you want to find out more about them. I highly suggest checking them out.
What is in the balm?
A big question our very ingredient aware friends always asks is what is in it. Yes, this is very important because our day and age we have been more focused on earth-friendly, body-friendly, and allergen-free ingredients and we truly should know what is in it. So for the Releaf Balm the ingredients are:
- Coconut Oil
- Essential Oil Blend (Eucalyptus, Tea Tree, Peppermint, Lavender)
- Vitamin E Oil
- And Natural Terpenes
As simple as that for the ingredients and it really smells like Eucalyptus and Peppermint mostly. If you were to compare it, it has a better scent and less painful scent than things like Icy-Hot.
Is it Psychoactive?
Yet, another big question and the answer is no. It is not psychoactive one bit. So you don’t have to worry about that.
What are the other uses for this balm?
Even though I may have started using this CBD balm for my eczema it helps with tons of other things as well. My family, friends, and I have found it useful and works for:
- Muscle sores
- To work out knots in muscles
- Inflammations in general
- Baker Cysts
- Lower back pains
- And more
The product says it works for about 2-3 hours, but for things like eczema and helping solve a baker cyst flare up it works for a lot longer. The length may vary for each person and how often you have used it.
