Benefits of CBD Massage Balm

Walk into any health food store or dispensary these days and you’ll find the shelves lined with cannabis based products for a variety of topical needs. CBD products do not contain THC which is the chemical compound known for its psychoactive responses. Therefore, while you won’t get high from these products, you may just find a perfect cure for whatever ails you.

Cannabis infused topical products have exploded in recent months, much of it due to the growing popularity of alternative medicines and clean living. The concept of clean grown plant products that provide medicinal relief is not new, but rather on the forefront again now that states are legalizing marijuana. Because of their commitment to making life better for those that live with pain, many products are crafted in small batches to ensure that the quality is higher.

CBD oil (Cannabidiol) based products are prevalent in massage spas, sports medicine complexes, and alternative medical offices. For those living with the pain of arthritis, inflammatory diseases, breaks, sprains and bruises, CBD massage balm is a lifeline to a better life. CBD decreases the pain transmitters signaling to the brain, allowing for reduced pain and swelling around an injury. This balm based product also glides on thickly, making it a favorite for massage therapists as it requires minimal application.

How Does it Work?

Worked out too hard and feeling the burn more than you should? Applying a CBD massage balm will help your aches to go away quickly as well as reduce the inflammation that created the problem. You only need a pea size amount for the CBD to be effective. The balm can be massaged in quickly and deeply to manage your discomfort.

Skin irritation can occur, but using a balm will help to reduce dryness and irritation of your skin. In Lab+Blend’s CBD massage balm the active ingredient for pain is cannabidiol (CBD), a derivative of marijuana. However, you won’t find yourself high, as it does not contain THC. CBD can also help calm other conditions like neuropathy and fibromyalgia.

Where to apply

While it is best to apply the CBD balm directly to your problem areas and massage in, there are other areas of your body that can benefit from topical relief:

  • Elbows, knees, and other joints
  • Wrists
  • All areas of your feet
  • Shoulders
  • Neck

A massage therapist can also apply the balm to troublesome areas that require more work to destress. CBD massage balm is also considered a wonderful alleviant for anxiety and depressive issues, sleep issues, headaches, and other stressors.

It’s important to know that cannabidiol is not a cure-all, but it can be quite helpful. Don’t expect a lifetime of inflammation to be gone overnight. With patience, you will begin to notice a more subtle relief rather than one that is completely cured. The soothing ingredients found in the topical balm will make pain much more bearable.

Ask your massage therapist about CBD massage balms for your next treatment. The more you use it, the better your body will respond. You can also apply the balm yourself, but who wouldn’t want to get a great massage for extra relaxation?
