There’s a lot of hype about CBD right now. Now that it’s legal in all 50 states, many people are eager to give it a try. And one of the best ways to try CBD is during a massage.
What exactly is CBD massage? Is it safe? How will it make you feel? What benefits can you expect from trying it?
In this post, we’ll answer those questions and more. Read on for everything you need to know about CBD massage.
What Is CBD Massage?
When you book a CBD massage, it will feel exactly like a regular massage — with one key difference.
Instead of plain oil or lotion, your therapist will use a soothing, unscented balm that contains CBD derived from hemp. You can choose to use it on your entire body, or only on key areas of pain or inflammation. We recommend using it for “spot treatment” on your areas of concern, such as lower back pain or sore legs after skiing.
Here at Simply Massage, our CBD product is made in Colorado and is 100% organic. We also offer something most other spas don’t! You will receive your own 1/2 oz container of CBD for your treatment, and you’re free to take the unused portion home with you.
How’s that for a win-win?
Is CBD Safe?
Yes! CBD is a completely natural product and studies have found that it’s safe and well-tolerated even in high doses.
Will CBD Make Me High?
No! Here’s a very quick explanation about the difference between CBD and THC.
CBD and THC are chemical compounds found in marijuana. They have similar properties, with one major difference. THC is psychoactive (and makes you high), while CBD has zero psychoactive effects.
Marijuana contains high amounts of both of these compounds. And yes, there are products on the market made from marijuana that contain both CBD and THC.
But the CBD massage products you see in spas are made from hemp. Hemp is similar to marijuana in many ways, but it’s legal in all 50 states because it doesn’t contain THC.
When you get a CBD massage, you’ll get all the healing properties of CBD without the mind-altering properties of THC. That’s a win-win for your body!
What Are the Benefits of CBD Massage?
Here are 7 benefits of CBD that are backed by scientific studies:
- Pain relief
- Reduced anxiety & depression
- Reduced side effects from chemotherapy
- Less acne & skin inflammation
- Improved quality of life for people with epilepsy, Parkinson’s, and MS
- Lowers blood pressure
- Can halt the spread of tumors and cancer
Even if you don’t suffer from serious health issues, CBD can reduce your daily aches and pains. Many people also report better sleep and reduced feelings of stress and anxiety.
