With summer comes pesky mosquito and itchy inflamed skin from the bites they leave behind. We all know how miserable these skin irritations can be. Pacific CBD to the rescue!
Why Does Our Skin Itch After a Mosquito Bite?
When the bloodsucking, female mosquito bite breaks the skin, a person's body recognizes the mosquito's saliva as a foreign substance. This causes an immune system response, which aims to flush out the intruder. The swelling around the bite is caused by histamine, which is produced by the immune system. Histamine increases blood flow and white blood cell count around the affected area, which causes inflammation or swelling.
Mosquito bites itch because histamine also sends a signal to the nerves around the bite. Some lucky people may never react to a bite. Others might become more tolerant to a mosquito's saliva over time. For many, the reaction remains consistent, and mosquito bites are a continued summertime annoyance.
How Does Pacific CBD Soothe the Skin After a Mosquito Bite?
Pacific CBD cannabinoids have a strong anti-inflammatory effect and are therefore effective in reducing, or stopping, the itching which occurs after a mosquito bites and poison.
Pacific CBD is chock full of essential fatty acids, which include crucial skin-health components like omega-3 acids, omega-6 acids and linoleic acid. These fatty acids have excellent natural molecular properties that aid in keeping skin cells soft, supple and healthy.
When you rub Pacific CBD oil (or other Pacific CBD topicals) directly onto the site of the bite(s), the itching will vanish entirely in most instances in about 10-15 minutes. Even for the most sensitive of individuals, they can expect any big red allergic welts to totally disappear within about 12 hours, rather than several days. Physiologically, the Pacific CBD works by interacting with endocannabinoid receptors in your epidermal cells, which wipe out the foreign bug saliva and relieve the lymphocytes from their nasty, itch-inducing duties.
Pacific CBD is certainly amazing stuff, and you’ll be thankful by how effective it really is on bites.
