Are you among the 64% of Americans who are familiar with CBD? Are you curious about trying a CBD massage while you’re visiting Vail?
Whether you’re new to CBD or you’ve been using it for a while, Colorado is the ideal place to indulge in CBD massage. In fact, the Centennial State is known for producing some of the highest quality hemp and CBD products in the nation.
So what exactly is CBD massage? How is it different than other types of massage? What benefits will you enjoy by choosing CBD oil for your massage?
We’ll dive into all that and more, so keep reading!
What Is CBD?
CBD is short for cannabidiol (and thank goodness, because it’s much easier to pronounce). It’s one of over 100 healthful compounds found in the cannabis plant.
Unlike THC, another famous cannabinoid, CBD does not make you high. While THC has a direct effect on your brain and central nervous system, CBD binds to receptors in your peripheral nervous system. This means you can enjoy the healing benefits of cannabis without the psychoactive effects.
And, in case you’re wondering, hemp-derived CBD is fully legal not just in Colorado, but in all 50 states.
What Is CBD Massage?
When you choose CBD massage from a spa menu, what exactly are you signing up for?
Your therapist will use a high-quality, organic CBD salve during your massage session. The salve has a light, pleasant fragrance and is terrific for your skin. Most importantly, your body will absorb the CBD through your skin, allowing you to enjoy its therapeutic qualities.
Depending on your needs, you may choose to use the CBD salve only on targeted areas of your body — for example, to ease sore leg muscles after skiing. If you don’t have any specific areas of pain or inflammation, you can ask your therapist to apply the CBD throughout the massage.
As always, you can choose between relaxing Swedish style massage, deep tissue massage, or a combination of techniques to address your needs.
What Are the Benefits of CBD?
So, does CBD really make you feel better, or is it all just a bunch of hype? Research shows that CBD may offer many benefits for your physical, mental, and emotional health.
Here are just a few benefits of CBD that are backed by science:
- Provides relief from chronic or acute pain
- Reduces inflammation
- Eases feelings of stress and anxiety
- Reduces depression and symptoms of PTSD
- Improves sleep quality and reduces insomnia
- Soothes sore muscles and muscular spasms
- Lowers blood pressure and encourages relaxation
Of course, massage therapy in general offers many of these same benefits. When combined with the healing power of CBD, though, you’ll walk away from your massage feeling better than ever!
