The benefits of bodywork are well documented. Regular massage sessions can help relieve stress, reduce inflammation, decrease chronic pain, and even stimulate the body’s lymphatic system. Over the last few years, therapists have begun to incorporate CBD, or cannabidiol, oil to enhance the effects of a classic massage. At Rubs Massage Studio, our CBD massage is designed to give you the best experience possible.

What is CBD?

Cannabidiol oil is derived from the leaves and flowers of the hemp plant. While many people associate CBD with the cannabis sativa plant, CBD is just one of the many chemical compounds it contains. The oil is made by combining CBD with a carrier oil, like coconut, hempseed, or sunflower.

Can CBD get you high?

The isolated CBD compound is non-psychotropic and will not produce a high. The chemical that you’re thinking of is called THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) and is the other primary compound in the hemp plant. While ingesting or consuming THC will produce a psychoactive effect, CBD cannot get you high. CBD oil must legally contain less than 0.3% THC, so any mind-altering symptoms typically caused by THC will be avoided.

What are the benefits of CBD?

CBD oil has numerous benefits, many of which line up perfectly with the advantages of regular massage. The primary objective of a CBD massage is to reduce inflammation, alleviate chronic pain, and stimulate the release of endorphins. While these advantages are associated with normal massage sessions, the inclusion of CBD oil will drastically improve your experience and enhance your results. CBD oil is especially effective when it comes to reducing inflammation, an extremely common cause of chronic pain.

What can I expect from my CBD massage?

The logistics of a CBD massage are nearly identical to a standard appointment. The main difference comes from the products used, rather than the techniques. Throughout your session, your massage therapist will apply a topical CBD oil to your skin and knead it in, allowing it to fully absorb into your skin. The combination of massage and CBD oil will leave you feeling serene and pain-free. Because your therapist will not alter their process, you’ll be able to identify the specific perks of CBD oil.
