Many high-end spas and salons are opting to add one not-so-secret ingredient to their luxe offerings of massages, body treatments, and facials — and it’s not necessarily what you’d expect. Then again, maybe it is.
Cannabidiol, or CBD for short, is a natural compound derived from the cannabis plant that’s known for it’s soothing, relaxing, and pain-relieving qualities. Considering these benefits, it makes perfect sense for spas to incorporate CBD oil and CBD spa products into their treatments. After all, what’s more relaxing than a massage with the added benefit of some ahh-inducing CBD?
Spas across the country are quickly adopting the trend, with offerings like the Green CBD Spa Treatment at Spa Anjali in Avon, CO, which includes the application of a compound made with activated hemp extract to pain points, followed by a hemp-based massage oil. The spa at the ultra-luxe Solage resort in Napa Valley offers a treatment called the CBD Mellow Me Out, which includes 135 blissful minutes enhanced with cannabidiol-infused products like CBD coconut sugar scrubs and CBD oils.
With the most reputable spas and resorts offer CBD spa treatments, we decided to take a look at how cannabidiol can truly enhance the experience for those seeking unparalleled rest and relaxation.
Why try CBD spa treatments?
CBD spa treatments are just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the countless other CBD-infused products that are taking the nation by storm. But the genius thing about incorporating CBD into say, a massage or facial, is that it can enhance an already relaxing experience.
CBD is known to help alleviate anxiety, improve sleep, and support mental health. But it’s also known to relieve pain and promote relaxation: two of the main reasons why someone might spend time at the spa or get a massage. CBD works by stimulating receptors in the brain that regulate functions like sleep, mood, appetite and more. When applied topically, the compound can soothe muscle soreness, relieve tension, alleviate joint pain, and treat chronic aches and pains.
Massage therapy is pretty magical in its own right and is also used to combat pain, stress, and anxiety. When combined with CBD, these qualities are amplified and the overall experience is enhanced. Similarly, the skin-soothing benefits of facials are also boosted, thanks to CBD’s lesser-known, acne-fighting properties.
Here’s how to try CBD spa treatments.
It’s clear that the spa and wellness industries are benefiting from both the positive press coverage and actual advantages of CBD, but how exactly can cannabidiol be incorporated into existing services and offerings? The truth is, there are many products on the market that can be adapted for use in all types of treatments. Here are a few of our favorites:
One of the most versatile applications available, CBD tinctures can be taken orally, applied topically, or mixed into other products. They can be combined with your spa’s existing creams or even added to teas and smoothies served pre or post-treatment. Best of all, when you choose a product like our Reverie Broad Spectrum CBD Oil, you can be sure that there are no unwanted fillers or harmful additives. The tinctures come in three different flavors (lemon, natural, and spearmint) and are available in concentrations ranging from 250 MG up to 5,000 MG.
CBD Pain Creams
Reverie’s Full Spectrum CBD Pain Cream is primed and ready for hand, foot, or full-body massages. Made with pure, all-natural CBD oil, this pain-relieving topical can be used in regular spa treatments or for take-home applications.
CBD Pain Sticks
Perfect quick applications and on-the-go use, the Reverie Full Spectrum CBD Pain Stick is a great option for shorter services or for spa visitors who want to take their pain relief on the road. Designed to help soothe aches and pains, the CBD stick is fast-absorbing for optimum relaxation that’s THC-free.
CBD Roll-On Oil
The Reverie Full Spectrum CBD Peppermint Roll-On Oil works similarly to essential oils. Apply it on pulse points before the spa treatment to set a soothing and relaxing mood with the calming scent of peppermint.
