The Benefits Of Cannabis-Infused Sunscreen

Cannabis has a magical way of making summer activities like hiking, surfing, swimming and sunbathing even more blissful, creating a chilled-out combination substantially greater than the sum of its parts. Realizing this, more manufacturers are incorporating marijuana into products targeted toward people with an active lifestyle.

One of the latest? Cannabis topical ointments that include UVA and UVB protection: take Cannabios sunscreen, an organic lotion infused with a high percentage of cannabidiol (CBD). CBD, a non-psychoactive compound in cannabis, has been long touted by athletes and others for its pain relieving and anti-aging properties. The formulation is also SPF 50. Bonus: it'll reduce localized pain and inflammation, meaning you're covered even if you do end up getting a burn.

One thing you should know about cannabis sunscreen: it won't get you high. CBD is a non-psychoactive compound, which, according to Leafly, means they "are often chosen by patients who want the therapeutic benefits of marijuana without the cerebral euphoria associated with other delivery methods".

Traveling with equipment and other gear, roadies would have to find secret places to hide the stash.
