Benefits of CBD for Tattoos, Before, During and After
CBD, the non-psychoactive compound found in industrial hemp plants, has been flooding the marketplace recently as an alternate and safe solution to many health concerns and lifestyle maintenance issues. One of the uses that many may not have heard about yet is CBD's amazing ability to help heal and protect the skin, therefore making it an outstanding product for use in tattoo aftercare. lt may seem that because of the newness of the industry, CBD is claiming itself as the new cure-all for many, many ailments, but there is a wealth of scientific information to support the claim that CBD salve is one of the most effective topical treatments to help heal our skin after the trauma of an invasive cosmetic procedure, such as a tattoo.
Any invasive procedure takes a strain on our immune system and our bodies will be working hard on healing a fresh tattoo. Generally, a new tattoo requires six weeks to fully heal and during this period, it is recommended to follow a certain skin regimen in order to assist the bodies natural healing abilities and to protect our skin in order to display our new investment with pride. Our skin becomes delicate for several weeks after getting a tattoo and requires hydration and nourishment for optimal results. For the first two weeks after a r new tattoo, it is recommended to moisturize your tattooed skin 3-6x/day as keeping our skin hydrated is one of the most important aspects of tattoo aftercare. Currently, products such as Aquaphor are being used and recommended, but this product contains petroleum, making it not a vegan option. CBD is 100% vegan, contains no animal products and is cruelty-free.
There are three main benefits to using CBD salve for tattoo aftercare. CBD is an anti-inflammatory, which will reduce swelling, pain and redness caused by the procedure. It's antioxidant properties help protect our cells during the healing process, helping to prevent or delay cell damage and even promoting cell renewal. This benefit is what keeps our skin youthful in appearance and can improve and brighten tattoo pigmentation. Other than outside appearance, the antioxidant property also allows the CBD salve to promote blood circulation, improving cardiovascular function. The third benefit is the analgesic relief CBD can bring. lt can help manage tenderness, sensitivity, soreness or itching associated with the aftermath of the procedure. CBD interacts specifically with pain receptors in our brains which can help to create a pain relieving experience.
Because of CBD's analgesic benefits, it can also be used as a calming method to ease any anxiety prior to and even during your tattoo. Almost everyone experiences some degree of anxiety, especially those of us experiencing their first tattoo. Many people use calming agents such as alcohol or other drugs to "take the edge off" before engaging in the tattoo experience. CBD is a completely natural alternative to pain management and is non-psychoactive as well, causing no side effects whatsoever, from its use. Karma Farma 1000 offers CBD gummies, as well as oral tinctures and gelcaps which can be taken just prior to a tattoo session. Our CBD products, being full and broad spectrum, offer a quicker reaction time than other products found readily in the market. lndividuals can experience relief 20-30 minutes after consumption allowing our bodies to become acclimated to the feeling of the tattoo as the CBD begins to kick in.
Karma Farma 1000's CBD products are certainly not the only CBD products consumers can choose from, but because of the quality of the CBD itself, as well as the agents Karma Farma 1000 infuses together with their CBD, their product specifically targets the needs of the tattoo client. There are four key ingredients Karma Farma 1000 uses to enhance the effectiveness of their CBD salve: coconut oil, lavender oil, eucalyptus oil and beeswax. Each of these components offer specific benefits to the consumer targeting the needs of the tattoo client. Both coconut oil and beeswax serve as excellent moisturizers. The medium chain fatty acids extracted from the flesh of coconuts help retain the natural moisture in the skin, while beeswax actually attracts moisture allowing our skin to absorb and seal in water molecules. Beeswax is also rich in Vitamin A, which is an emollient helping to soothe and hydrate our skin. Because of these added ingredients, your tattoo will not dry out when our salve is applied and used properly. Coconut oil also acts as a protector of our skin where the capric, caprylic and lauric fatty acids act as natural disinfectants protecting both your skin from microbial infections as well as protecting your monetary investment. Beeswax also shares in the job of skin protection by coating the skin with a breathable antibacterial and antiviral barrier. The addition of eucalyptus oil also enhances the antibacterial, antiseptic, antiviral and antifungal benefits of our salve, allowing you to achieve truly clean skin. Eucalyptus oil is known to be highly effective in treating wounds, minor cuts and skin infections, as well as being known for its antioxidant properties which keeps skin youthful in appearance. The protective qualities of this oil also include a low, natural sun protection factor (SPF) of 3; combined with coconut oils SPF of B and lavender oils SPF of 6, tattoo clients can reap the benefits from the salve's natural sun protection, alleviating the need to add potentially unsafe products to your skin found in some sunscreens. Additionally, lavender oil is known for its effectiveness in pain relief, increased blood circulation and in easing anxiety or discomfort, all areas of focus for the tattoo customer, as previously discussed. Lastly, the proteins found in the coconut oil assist in rejuvenating skin after tattoo trauma. Cells are repaired at a normal, healthy rate and the presence of vitamin E in coconut oil keeps your skin smooth and blocks free radicals from your body.
