CBD and Aloe Vera Gel by Envy CBD

You all know the saying: Suns Out. Guns Out. (or Buns Out!) This tried-and-true statement means one thing; a day of fun in the Sun!

Whether it is a day at the beach, a pool party, a midday stroll, or any time outdoors, your skin is most likely exposed to the Sun.

So we are happy to announce our latest product that perfectly combines the benefits of aloe vera gel with CBD or cannabidiol. We are always trying to add new, innovative ideas to our range of CBD products. And we are confident we have found a new favorite for many in our community with this CBD and aloe vera combination.


Thin but absorbent and easy to apply, our CBD Aloe Vera instantly cools the skin when you massage it in the area. The soothing, calming touch reinforces what CBD topicals already do, magnifying its effects tenfold.

Aloe Vera has long since been a medicinal plant with remarkable healing effects. We give it new properties and better uses beyond its usual capabilities by combining it with CBD.

THE BENEFITS OF ALOE VERA

In 2008, researchers published a short review of the benefits of aloe vera gel in the Indian Journal of Dermatology. They reviewed the anatomy of the plant, its active components, and its potential beneficial properties.

They stated that aloe vera contains antioxidants like vitamins A, C, E, B12, choline, and folic acid. According to their studies, aloe vera also contains enzymes that help reduce excessive inflammation whenever applied topically to the skin. Other enzymes found within the plant help break down fats and sugars.

Aloe Vera extracts contain components with powerful antioxidant properties. Some of these components are polyphenols, a large family of substances that could help inhibit bacteria that cause infections in humans. Altogether, these antioxidant compounds contribute to the benefits of aloe vera gel for the body in different ways.

Finally, other components like fatty acids and hormones can help further with anti-inflammatory action. Aloe Vera also possesses analgesic, antiseptic, antibacterial, and cleansing properties. Overall, the plant is a nutrient-rich haven for topical products. So the combination of CBD and aloe vera can only lead to better effects.

Aloe Vera Is Vitamin-Rich

Zinc, sodium, potassium, manganese, magnesium, selenium, copper, chromium, and calcium are all minerals found within the aloe vera plant. They are essential for the proper functioning of various enzyme systems within our metabolic pathways and contribute to the benefits of aloe vera gel. That means the plant is rich in necessary nutrients for us.

Aloe Vera Provides Sun Damage Protection

Reports say that aloe vera gel with other topical products can protect the skin against sun damage. While its exact role is unknown, studies show that topical application of aloe vera gel produces an antioxidant protein in the skin. This protein helps heal sun damage and mitigate further exposure through a consistent and routine application.

Aloe Vera Reduces Symptoms of Certain Skin Conditions

As aloe vera creams and other topicals typically have a calming effect on the skin, they can help those with acne, psoriasis, and other skin conditions. Among the benefits of aloe vera gel are its anti-inflammatory properties that can reduce itchiness in the skin. Its nourishing properties may help keep symptoms of various skin conditions at bay with consistent use. CBD is also famous for its anti-inflammatory potential. So CBD and aloe vera can work great together in this regard.

Aloe Vera Reduces Premature Signs of Aging

While the evidence is in its preliminary stages right now, it seems some aloe vera products can help slow the aging of the skin. Since the benefits of aloe vera gel include hydrating and ridding the body of inflammation, that would make sense.

In a study of 30 women aged 45 or older, topical application of aloe vera improved skin elasticity and increased collagen production. Scientists monitored the women for over 90 days, and the results were promising enough to inspire us forward.

A separate study found aloe vera has the potential to reduce erythema or redness of the skin. However, the study also showed that it might dehydrate the skin cells. So we do not have all the answers just yet. But we know that aloe vera has long-term lock-in moisturizing effects on the human skin.

You Can Grow and Harvest Your Aloe!

Aloe Vera is a very beginner-friendly plant and an excellent option to introduce to your garden due to its ability to produce smaller plants, ideal for propagation. So you can always opt to grow it yourself and enjoy the benefits of aloe vera gel! Our friends over at Happy DIY Home have an excellent, comprehensive guide to do just that.

In as little as four months, you can have a garden FULL of aloe vera plants to harvest as you see fit. If you are not willing to tend to plants, you can always purchase ready-made aloe vera and even some with CBD in it!

What Does CBD Bring to the Table?

And then, there is the combination of our potent Broad Spectrum CBD extract and aloe vera. It includes CBD with minor amounts of THC and other cannabinoids and valuable hemp compounds that make it highly effective. We do not want to give you a full breakdown of the potential effects of CBD as we did with the benefits of aloe vera gel. You can read about those in our prior blog posts.

But to refresh your memory, CBD is used in many topicals to reportedly reduce inflammation and certain types of pain, provide a calming sensation, and more. Much like what aloe vera has to offer, CBD has the potential to do the same. Many CBD formulas are rich in antioxidants and other beneficial compounds. Combined with CBD, these components have the potential to help nourish, relieve, calm, and protect the skin.

Combining CBD With Aloe Vera

Since CBD and aloe vera have benefits in common, it is not a stretch to think that a product infused with both could amplify their benefits. Combining the benefits of aloe vera gel and CBD in a topical product that utilizes both will help enhance their properties.

The combined anti-inflammatory properties that help relieve skin and muscle pain can amplify the ingredients already there. CBD and aloe vera work hard in tangent to take on the inflammation, lock in moisture, protect and heal damaged skin, and so much more.

Lastly, you might be asking yourself, what is the difference between this and some of our other CBD Topicals products, such as the CBD Soothing Balm? CBD Aloe Vera contains Broad Spectrum CBD, Aloe Vera Leaf Juice, and Witch Hazel Water. Given the lower amount of active ingredients, finding targeted relief behind sun damage makes our CBD Aloe Vera a top selection.
