Cannabidiol or CBD is an extract of the cannabis plant. It has been proven in clinical studies to offer anti-inflammatory and pain-relieving effects. CBD may also be blended with other well-documented pain-relieving, anti-inflammatory supplements such as arnica and turmeric for maximum pain relief. Many conditions can be alleviated by a CBD massage: sore muscles from gardening or working out, injuries, arthritis, and even anxiety. A CBD massage is like bodywork cranked up to eleven, offering extra long-lasting pain relief.
CBD can come from hemp or it can come from marijuana. CBD is not the same thing as THC (the psychoactive component in marijuana) and CBD is not addictive. For better or for worse, a CBD massage will not get you high.
We actually produce cannabinoids inside our body. Research is ongoing, but CBD from the cannabis plant does not appear to interact directly with our system. Instead, it seems to encourage the body to use more of its own cannabinoids, kind of like a one-upsmanship contest. Cannabinoids influence many of the body’s systems, including appetite, memory, immune response, and the production of the feel-good brain chemical, serotonin.
Looking to reduce pain is probably the number one reason people go for a massage. Pain relief is one of the main benefits of massage and bodywork and because CBD has analgesic (pain-relieving) properties, it can supercharge this effect, offering you extended relief.
Inflammation is the bane of modern life, causing pain, disease, and premature aging. CBD is not only anti-inflammatory, it has also been shown to have antioxidant qualities. A CBD massage can reduce inflammation, easing soreness and achy joints. Less inflammation will not only reduce pain, it can also help the body to heal faster.
Anxiety is a serious problem today. Massage and bodywork can be highly effective in reducing stress and anxiety, and CBD can enhance relaxation even further. In studies, CBD has been shown to reduce social anxiety.
CBD is usually well-tolerated and does not cause dependence. A CBD massage can help reduce or eliminate chronic pain by lessening inflammation, soreness, inflammation and irritation. A CBD massage is an excellent natural alternative to the unwanted and dangerous side effects of prescription and over-the-counter drugs.
