The hottest buzz in the spa world is the benefits of CBD infused products and massages. CBD is Non-Psychoactive and  Anti-inflammatory. Massage creams and oils infused with CBD, are inherently therapeutic for the mind and the body. Massage therapist and patients alike can reap these soul soothing benefits of an infused massage.  

What role does CBD play in the massage?

The anti-inflammatory and pain relieving agents of CBD reduces inflammation within muscles and joints, allowing the massage therapist to work more effectively. People seek massages as a way to relax and escape stress. For athletes, CBD also has the reputation for accelerating the recovery and healing process of injured connective tissue.

How CBD works?

The CBD receptors (known as CB2) are part of the endocannabinoid system, which is the physiological system that helps the homeostatic functions within the central nervous system. This includes maintenance of bodily functions, pain, inflammation, and the immune system.

CB2 receptors are found in nerve and immune cells in just about every organ. CBD binds to CB2 receptors as well as TRPV1 receptors. Damaged tissues sensitize TRPV1 to its chemical and physical stimuli. Adding massage further benefits the stimulation of TRPV1 activity and has a positive influence on the CB2 receptors, which helps alleviate inflammation and pain.

 

Will my massage therapist or I get high from this treatment?

No! CBD is the non-psychoactive compound of the cannabis plant. Even with low levels of THC, there is no high and subjects being drug tested after a CBD infused massage have tested negative for THC which is why professional athletes use these products.
