Since the passing of the farm bill in the U.S. in 2018, more and more people have been curious about the possible benefits of CBD— compound derived from the hemp plant. CBD (cannabidiol) comes from the cannabis plant and has a plethora of uses. Plus, since legal CBD can only have a THC level of 0.3 percent, you won’t have any psychoactive effects. Whether you take CBD in a capsule, as a full-spectrum CBD oil, or a topical product from a CBD skincare line you can expect to experience benefits.
As mentioned above, CBD has many uses. For example, CBD can provide pain relief (even for chronic pain), may help anxiety and depression, can treat insomnia, may have neuroprotective qualities, can improve heart health, may prevent ailments such as diabetes and certain cancers, and even aids in your skincare regimen by moisturizing dry skin while preventing acne. Check out the following tips for adding CBD to your skin care and massage practices.
Upgrade your skincare products.
When it comes to skincare products (especially for your face), you’re going to want to go with something that is good for your skin type while giving you all the benefits you desire, such as fighting acne or aging. There is evidence to suggest that CBD (cannabidiol) can have a positive effect on preventing acne due to its ability to reduce sebum production. CBD could also be a safe and effective treatment for skin conditions such as eczema and psoriasis.
Sera Labs’ extensive line of skincare products ranges from basic facial cleansers and moisturizers to anti-aging treatments and topical products for pain. Their anti-aging line includes eye serum, a moisturizing lip balm, and overnight therapeutic hand cream. They also have a cream for your feet that could aid with pain. This CBD skin care line hydrates the skin while balancing inflammatory properties which may help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. The CBD beauty products from Sera Topical contain natural ingredients such as vitamin C, E, A, and B, antioxidants, less than 0.3 percent THC (as is legally required), and of course, CBD oil.
You should consult your dermatologist if you have an underlying skin condition or sensitive skin before using CBD, especially for the first time. Anyone over 18 years of age can use SeraTopical skin treatments but should be aware they haven’t been evaluated by the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
Book a therapeutic massage.
If you’re experiencing a stiff neck, low back pain, general soreness, or another type of muscle pain; consider trying a remedial massage from a professional massage therapist at the Endota spa. Here you’ll receive a personalized therapeutic massage from a professional massage therapist who will first give you a consultation to better understand your specific needs and concerns regarding your discomfort. This allows them to can develop a treatment plan specific to you.
Once your treatment plan has been crafted, your trained therapist will vary pressure from light to a deep tissue massage to relieve any stiffness, tightness, and muscle tension. Whether you’re experiencing soreness from a sports injury or just general life stresses, reap the benefits of massage therapy by giving therapeutic massage a try. It’s even possible to get part of the treatment price covered under certain health insurance policies. Some therapists use CBD oil during treatment, which is something you would discuss during your consultation.
Turn skincare and massage into a relaxing spa day.
Your quality of life is important. After a long day, it’s important to relieve soreness and tension by making time to relax and focus on your wellness. Get some of your favorite aromatherapy going (lavender essential oil is great for relaxation). Put on a face mask and meditate for at least one minute. Treat yourself to a massage therapy appointment. Or, if you’re in a relationship and on a budget, consider looking up massage techniques for your specific problem and techniques for the ultimate relaxing massage and take turns doing some bodywork on each other. For particularly painful areas consider trying some CBD lotion and/or considering ordering some CBD foot lotion from SeraTopical for a fantastic foot rub.
