Amendment 2 just passed in Missouri (whoop whoop) and you’re going to be hearing a lot about cannabis, or medical marijuana. This includes CBD oil which has been legal and used within the self-care industry for years. So, what is CBD?
A cannabis plant contains both CBD (Cannabidiol) and THC (tetrahydrocannabinol). THC is the primary psychoactive compound in marijuana and is what makes a person feel ‘stoned’. Unlike THC, CBD is not psychoactive which makes CBD an appealing option for those who are looking for pain relief.
CBD has been shown to be a more natural alternative to prescriptions and over-the-counter drugs for things like stiffness, chronic pain, epilepsy, fighting cancer, acne, and Alzheimer’s disease! Within your body you have the Endocannabinoid System (ECS) which plays a crucial role in regulating our physiology, mood, and everyday experience. CBD stimulates the endocannabinoid system and helps promotes homeostasis in the body, reducing the sensation of pain and inhibiting inflammation.
CBD has slowly been breaking into the health and beauty industries, for good reason! Beneftis of CBD in a massage include: anti-inflammatory benefits, helps boost the immune system, reduces anxiety, promotes a sense of calmness and relaxation, and helps alleviate chronic pains. Can you imagine being even more relaxed during a massage??
You already know that inflammation is the root cause of so many skin troubles, from rosacea to acne. CBDs anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties can reduce puffiness, soothes and even tightens skin which makes it perfect for facials!
