CBD Oil Has Made It’s Way Into Spas

Does CBD Oil help people with anxiety? There have been numerous studies that suggest yes. We researched the news and found some interesting results like the one below from Medical News Today.

People interested in managing their anxiety with CBD oil should look exclusively at research on cannabidiol, not generalized studies of medical marijuana. Although there are fewer studies on cannabidiol specifically, the preliminary research is promising.

A small 2010 study found that cannabidiol could reduce symptoms of social anxiety in people with social anxiety disorder (SAD). Brain scans of participants revealed changes in blood flow to the regions of the brain linked to feelings of anxiety.

In this study, cannabidiol not only made participants feel better but also changed the way their brains responded to anxiety.

A 2011 study also found that cannabidiol could reduce social anxiety. For that study, researchers looked specifically at cannabidiol to treat anxiety associated with public speaking.

Research published in 2014 found that CBD oil had anti-anxiety and antidepressant effects in an animal model.

A 2015 analysis of previous studies concluded that CBD oil is a promising treatment for numerous forms of anxiety, including social anxiety disorder, panic disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder, generalized anxiety disorder, and post-traumatic stress disorder.

The report cautioned, however, that data on long-term use of CBD oil is limited. While research strongly points to the role of cannabidiol in treating short-term anxiety, little is known about its long-term effects, or how it can be used as a prolonged treatment.

A 2016 case study explored whether cannabidiol could reduce symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and anxiety-provoked sleep disorder in a child with a history of trauma. Researchers found that cannabidiol reduced the child’s anxiety and helped her sleep.

We encourage all our clients to do their own research but the studies are starting to mount in favor of CBD value when dealing with anxiety.

Well we are not surprised by this recent news that CBD oil is a hot new product being used in spas across the country. As reported by Joni Sweet in a recent article at Forbes this is a new growing trend for a wonderful product.

CBD oil’s been making a splash on the wellness scene this year. It makes sense—cannabidiol, a non-psychoactive compound in cannabis, offers a myriad of potential health effects. Research shows that CBD helps ease anxiety, reduces inflammation, and might be an effective treatment for acne, among dozens of other promised benefits. No wonder people think of it as the next wonder drug.

Known for offering a mildly relaxing effect, CBD oil’s now turning up at the very places where people go to bliss out: Spas. Wellness centers around the country have taken treatments to new highs by infusing spa treatments, like massages and manicures, with CBD oil. Here are 10 places where you can try a CBD oil spa treatment.

Spa Anjali at The Westin Riverfront

One of the newest items on the menu at Spa Anjali in Avon, CO, is the Green CBD Spa Treatment. The massage therapist starts the treatment by applying a compound made with activated hemp extract to areas of concern, like a stiff neck or achey shoulders. It creates a tingly, soothing feeling, akin to Tiger Balm. You’ll then get a 50- or 75-minute rejuvenating rubdown with hemp-based massage oil from Mary’s Nutritionals, followed by a green smoothie—perfect for sipping while you take in glorious mountain views from The Westin’s pool deck.

Simply Massage at DoubleTree by Hilton Vail

As the name suggests, Simply Massage does just one thing, and it does it well: Massages. But now the Colorado spa’s making its signature treatment even better with an add-on of CBD salve to any treatment. Love the effects? You can take home the extra salve and shop for CBD-infused bath bombs, lotions, and oils at Simply Massage, the resident spa the recently opened DoubleTree in Vail, CO.

Wonder what’s next? All we know is we are no longer surprised.
