CBD and Burns: Can CBD Oil Help Treat Burns?

Published

CBD for Burns

Burns are among the most common injuries at home and at work. Exposure of any part of your body to fire, extreme heat, or some chemicals can lead to damages, some of which are fatal. While some burns can be treated using medication (such as CBD oil), in most cases immediate treatment by doctors and healthcare professionals is required.

Types of Burns

Burns can be divided into several types, such as:

  • Thermal – You can suffer from this if you come in contact with anything hot. Usually, you can get this when your skin or any body part touch fire or flames; hot liquid or steam; and hot objects like irons, cooking pans, or heat-producing appliances.
  • Chemical – You can get a chemical burn if your body part comes in contact with harsh chemicals such as acids. Typical substances that cause this type of injury include ammonia, chlorine, bleach, battery acid, or harsh cleaners
  • Electrical – When your body comes in contact with a jolt of electric current, it can damage cause burning. The most common cause of an electrical burn takes place when your skin touches an extension cord, particularly when its insulation has worn out.
  • Friction – When your skin is repeatedly rubbed to another surface or scraped against a rough surface, it can cause this burn type.
  • Radiation – Exposure to high-energy radiation such as in the case of cancer patients undergoing radiation therapy can sustain radiation burn.

Burns can also be classified according to the severity of the damage.

  • First-degree – The damage only affects the epidermis or the outer layer of the skin. Typically, these burns can be healed within a week.
  • Second-degree – The damage extends to the second layer of the skin or the dermis. In some cases, doctors use a skin grafting procedure for treatment.
  • Third-degree – This is the most severe type as the cells of both layers of the skin are destroyed, including the sweat glands, hair follicles, and other tissues. Skin grafting is required in this burn type to heal.

If you experience second-degree and third-degree burns, you should call for emergency treatment.

CBD Oil and Burns

You should take note that you can only treat first-degree burns. You should let doctors treat second-degree and third-degree burns to avoid further damaging your skin.

Cannabidiol has many healing properties beneficial for burn victims. Researchers have found that CBD oil helps provide pain relief. It can also reduce inflammation by suppressing the secretion of cortisol as well as lowering blood levels. Hence, this substance can help soothe the skin and relieve some of the irritation you experience from the burns.

CBD also has antimicrobial qualities. Researchers found that it is particularly useful in fighting against MRSA, one of the most harmful pathogens that affect wounds and burns. Applying CBD oil on the damaged area can protect them from infection while reducing the pain and swelling.

CBD also reduces the secretion of cortisol (the stress hormone) and lowers blood pressure. So, the substance can relieve pain and inflammation. It is also a powerful antidepressant that gives therapeutic effects without getting you high.

Moreover, high-quality CBD oil contains linalool and other types of terpenes — a class of beneficial compounds found in many plants. Scientists found that linalool has a pain-relieving property and can provide a cooling effect. These properties make CBD is highly effective in helping to treat first-degree burns.

You can apply CBD topicals like oil, ointment, or cream on the affected area. Take note that you can only do self-treatment if the burn is not severe. You can also take CBD orally through capsules, tinctures, and edibles to help relieve the pain.

Suffering from a burn requires immediate treatment to avoid infection, swelling and other complications. CBD has the amazing therapeutic powers like antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory and pain-relieving properties for the successful treatment of first-level burns. But to ensure your injury will be cured, you need to consult your doctor.
