What does a CBD Massage do?
CBD is short for cannabidiol, and is a non-psychoactive compound derived from the cannabis plant. It is legal in the UK* and is known for its therapeutic benefits, including anti-inflammatory, analgesic, and relaxation properties. CBD can be absorbed through the skin and can enhance the overall massage experience and potentially provide additional benefits.
What to expect during a CBD Massage.
During a CBD Massage, dependent on the location of your tension, pain or discomfort, either yourself or a massage therapist will apply CBD-infused balm, oil, cream or lotion directly to the skin. Various techniques can then be used to work the CBD into muscles and soft tissues.
The combination of massage therapy and CBD may help alleviate muscle soreness, reduce inflammation, and relieve pain in targeted areas. CBD also has calming properties that may promote relaxation and reduce stress during the massage.
Is it safe to massage with CBD?
When used topically, CBD is generally considered safe for most people. However, it's essential to follow common-sense precautions:
Use quality products: Ensure you use high-quality CBD products from reputable sources to avoid potential contaminants or low-quality ingredients.
Be mindful of existing allergies and sensitivities: If you have known allergies to cannabis or other ingredients in CBD products, it's best to avoid CBD massage.
Check: If you have any underlying health conditions or concerns, consider consulting with a healthcare professional before getting a CBD massage.
