It’s no secret that weed is incredibly well known for its relaxing properties and its ability to treat various medical conditions. Seemingly, the fact that cannabis spas exist doesn’t seem out of the ordinary. In fact, while aromatherapy is incredibly helpful to the mind and body when it comes to inducing a deep level of relaxation, it’s easy to see why combining hemp-infused herbal remedies can positively impact therapeutic powers when they’re added into the mixture. That being said, let’s explore the buzz behind this sector of cannabusiness and legal-weed wellness.
What do we mean by cannabis spas?
We’re not talking about getting high with your masseuse, but more so about how spas are embracing cannabis products as a method to improve the health and wellness of their clients. By using CBD-infused creams and oils, these remedies are becoming more and more popular in the field of massage therapy and other spa-related services.
What is CBD?
For those of you who don’t know what CBD (cannabidiol) is, it’s a cannabis compound that has many proven significant medical benefits. Strains that are rich in CBD have very little THC content, which means that they’re not associated with psychoactivity or the common “high” sensation. Not to mention, CBD has the power to relieve pain, reduce anxiety and depression, alleviate cancer-related symptoms, treat neurological diseases and aid in reducing the user’s blood pressure.
How does CBD oil help with massage?
CBD oil is designed to hydrate and rejuvenate the skin while also easing the inevitable aches and pains of an active lifestyle — while specifically focusing on relieving tension, pain and injury of any chronic areas.
Deep-tissue massages allow a therapist to really dig into the muscles of your legs, back and shoulders. Moreover, CBD has the ability to help the hands perform while also invoking an anti-inflammatory response to avoid any extended period of icing afterwards. While a cannabis-infused salve will help out with all the aches and pains that soon follow a client after treatment, it also helps the hands of the therapist feel soothed throughout the treatment.
How does CBD oil help with other spa treatments?
While massages are the most common cannabis spa treatment, there are a few other spas that are using CBD to treat their clients.
- Nail salons: Nail technicians are adopting cannabis-infused technologies in their salons. From CBD bath bomb foot soaks to massage lotions to relax their clients.
- Exfoliation services: The body is coated with CBD products and then scrubbed of dead skin cells
- Acupuncture: This form of alternative medicine involves needle insertion into the body. CBD oil is used to relax patients and assist them in relieving the pain of certain anatomical points.
