What is CBD and How Does it Work?
CBD, Cannabidiol, is one of over 100 different plant cannabinoids found in the Cannabis Sativa L. plant species. THC, which is the psychoactive ingredient in marijuana, is the most commonly known cannabinoid from this plant. But CBD is not psychoactive, is applied topically, and offers a wealth of benefits without causing the “high” that some people want to do without.
Scientists have discovered a direct link between CBD’s calming effect with that of the human body’s endocannabinoid system (ECS). Your ESC helps you maintain many important functions, such as memory, sleep, mood, pain, etc. When CBD is absorbed into the skin, it locates the endocannabinoid molecules in the body’s system and binds with them to activate receptors in the ECS system, helping to stimulate the effects of pain and stress relief and ultimately calms the nervous system.
The Top Three Benefits of CBD Massage
The cannabinoids in CBD massage oil help to reduce inflammation and soothe muscles. People who suffer from chronic pain, arthritis, back pain, joint inflammation, and so much more can reap the many benefits of a CBD oil massage. It’s also great for post-workout soreness and fatigue!
Helps to Alleviate Stress and Anxiety
CBD is known to reduce stress and anxiety and produce a calming effect that can last up to two hours. A traditional massage helps the body to relax, and this reduces anxiety. Paired with the calming effect of CBD, a massage can be greatly enhanced. This calming effect can last up to two hours post-massage, making it a great way to ease your mental state.
Improves Skin Conditions
CBD massage oil contains hemp, which conditions the skin. People who suffer from skin conditions can greatly benefit from it. Additionally, the anti-inflammatory properties of CBD soothe the skin and reduce pain as well.
