As the second most prevalent of the active ingredients in cannabis, a lot of people have questions about the uses and side effects of CBD. CBD is derived directly from the Hemp plant, which contains much higher levels of CBD than a Marijuana plant would. Like all phytocannabinoids, CBD works by directly and indirectly stimulating your Endocannabinoid System (ECS). CBD alone has no psychoactive effects – meaning it will not cause a “high,” but it is well known for its calming, soothing effects that are often experienced as relaxing and beneficial for mitigating pain.
How CBD Works in Massage
Many of the benefits of CBD are to be gained from taking an internal CBD product, such as a tincture or edible. Due to CBD’s interaction with certain medications, a consultation with a doctor is recommended before internal use. However a CBD massage is safe for everyone, making the benefits of CBD accessible for all, while enjoying the benefits of massage.
The anti-inflammatory and pain relieving agents of CBD reduce inflammation within muscles and joints, allowing the massage therapist to work more effectively. When considering a topical CBD product, such as an oil or cream, it is important to look at the ingredients. Many products are not able to effectively care the CBD into deep layers of tissue. However, we have specific carrier oils and several essential oils that are able to penetrate deep into the layers of the skin, muscles, and blood vessels. This practice optimizes CBD’s benefits to the body providing a healing and relaxing massage.
