Benefits of CBD Massage
Adding CBD massage oil to your massage experience will bring the pain-relieving and relaxation benefits of regular massage to a deeper level. The cannabis plant has been used for thousands of years by many cultures for healing.
If you are a Hawai’i medical cannabis patient, I invite you to bring in your own oil. If you don’t have your own, you’re in luck! I have a fully legal CBD topical oil derived from hemp that does not contain THC. CBD massage will not get you “high.” Well, maybe only high on life!
Cannabis-infused oils work by binding to a network of receptors called CB2. These CB2 receptors are found throughout the body and are activated either by the body’s naturally-occurring endocannabinoids or by cannabis compounds known as “phytocannabinoids.”
Because cannabinoid receptors are located all throughout the skin, CBD has the capability of interacting with those receptors to encourage homeostasis and healing. Studies show that CBD can help treat an array of conditions related to the skin. Atopic dermatitis, also called eczema, has been shown to improve after treatment with hemp oil. Also, CBD can adjust the output of oils in the skin and hair and inhibit skin cells’ lipid production, making it effective for preventing acne. A 2013 study published in the British Journal of Pharmacology found that CBD controls cell proliferation and differentiation, indicating it can be used in treatment efforts for skin diseases like allergies or cancer.
CBD Massage is an additional $10 well-spent on your mind-body health.
