In our modern, fast-paced world, there’s barely any time for wellness and relaxation. But what if we told you that a 90-minute appointment is enough to give you that much-needed sense of inner peace? By combining the benefits of CBD with massages, acupuncture, or other spa treatments, a visit to a cannabis spa can relieve all your physical and mental stress in a matter of minutes.
What Is a Cannabis Spa?
Cannabis spas, also sometimes referred to as CBD spas, offer treatments that incorporate topical cannabis products. By taking advantage of the relaxing and anti-inflammatory benefits of CBD, cannabis spas provide a much richer experience than traditional spas.
CBD is one of over 100 cannabinoids found in marijuana. But unlike its famous brother, THC, it’s not psychoactive. This means that getting a cannabis spa treatment doesn’t necessarily mean you’ll get high. Instead, the benefits of CBD heighten the spa experience in a subtle way.
What Are the Benefits of Cannabis Spas?
Topical CBD has an incredible number of benefits, from reducing acne to promoting wound healing. Pair that with a relaxing massage or facial by a professional practitioner, and you’ve got a sublime experience ahead of you.
Massages give you a deep sense of relaxation and calm by prompting the release of endorphins, the neurotransmitters responsible for pain relief. They also reduce the levels of stress hormones, such as adrenaline, cortisol, and norepinephrine. Other benefits of massages include:
- Improved blood circulation
- Reduced muscle tension
- Better skin tone
- Increased joint mobility
- Reduced anxiety and depression
But not all benefits of cannabis spas are related to massages. At Far & Dotter, we also offer acupuncture and beauty treatments, such as waxing and skincare therapies. Acupuncture offers similar benefits to massages, whereas beauty-related appointments will help improve your self-confidence.
According to a comprehensive 2022 review, topical CBD has anti-inflammatory, anti-itching, and analgesic properties. These three benefits on their own can take your experience to a whole new level. But that’s not all. CBD also:
- Boosts the immune system
- Has antioxidant properties
- Helps with hair loss
- Increases skin moisture
- Fights specific bacteria
With all these benefits combined, cannabis spas are the perfect solution for even the most sensitive skin. After a CBD spa treatment, you’ll be left feeling deeply relaxed.
The profound sense of calm will last for a while, and you’ll be left feeling that nothing can throw you off balance. Oh, and you’ll probably sleep like a baby, too. So make sure you set an alarm if you have to work the following day.
What Should I Expect?
A cannabis spa treatment is fundamentally no different than any other spa. Your experience will mostly depend on which services you’re interested in — a skincare appointment is different than a deep massage.
Your therapist will inform you of everything you need to know before your appointment. But don’t worry! Not much is needed on your end. Some people prefer to smoke some weed beforehand to enhance the experience, but others may opt to enjoy the CBD on its own.
If you’re getting a massage or acupuncture, you should consider wearing comfortable clothing and clearing your schedule after the appointment. The therapist will, in most cases, ask you to undress, so make sure you feel ready for that.
For skincare and beauty therapies, your therapist will inform you of everything you need to know before you get to the appointment. They may ask you to skip your skincare routine the day of the appointment or to take off all makeup before getting there. But, as always, don’t be afraid to ask questions!
