The Truth Behind Using CBD Oil With Massages
There has been scientific evidence to show that CBD has numerous therapeutic benefits that can help ease ailments including chronic pain, anxiety or insomnia.
Today we will be discussing the benefits of getting a massage with CBD oil. The benefits you will receive from getting a massage is to help reduce stress, lessen pain and muscle tightness, increase relaxation and improve the immune system. By adding CBD to your massage it will help enhance these effects.
Cannabidiol or CBD is a naturally occurring chemical compound found in the cannabis plant. CBD is known to have pain relieving and anti-inflammation properties, it can reduce stress and anxiety, it can regulate and uplift mood, improve appetite and improve the immune system. The chemical compounds found in the cannabis plant or cannabinoid which includes THC, THCA, CBN, CBG, CBDa, CBC and CBD. What sets CBD apart from its counterpart THC is that CBD doesn't contain psychoactive properties so it will not cause you to feel intoxicated or "high"and it won't alter the state of your mind like THC would.
We now know that CBD oil directly works with the Endocannabinoid System (ECS). The Endocannabinoid System is responsible for regulating vital bodily functions in our body such as mood, hunger, memory, pain, sleep, immune system or body temperature.
When you apply CBD oil while massaging, the CBD locates the endocannabinoid in your skin and binds with it. Then it will help trigger and stimulate the receptors to release the beneficial effects that come with CBD such as pain relieving, calming effect and stress and anxiety reduction.
We call the process where CBD is absorbed to your body as micellization. Once you apply CBD oil like the ones from Mellow Organic, your skin molecules will create a barrier around the cannabinoid compounds. The fatty molecules in your skin will attach themselves with the fatty molecules of CBD. By doing so CBD will be able to pass on through the skin membrane and enter the targeted area.
CBD oil can help with inflammation and chronic pain. A recent study showed that CBD can reduce inflammation by interacting with receptors in the endocannabinoid that is already connected with the immune system that is responsible for inflammation response.
Massage therapy is a very useful resource in treating chronic pain such as muscle fatigue and inflammation, but when combined with CBD it will target the pain receptors which will help lessen or take away the pain and bring in more comfort for patients. CBD oil plus massage therapy equals a very powerful pain relieving tool.
Anxiety is a natural reaction caused by stress. Anxiety can cause fatigueness in both the body and mind. For some when they are under a lot of anxiety they may experience headaches, dizziness, rapid heart rate, high blood pressure, trembling, sweating or breathlessness. All of this is a sign of physiological effects that can be caused by reactions from your body and mind, but on the other hand some people may experience physical effects too such as tension in the neck, shoulders, head, hips, feet or hands. This could bring a lot of discomfort and pain. Getting a massage is also a treatment to alleviate the physical effects from anxiety, but it would be greater to add CBD oil to your CBD as part of the massage therapy. CBD sends signals to your body to help speed up the recovery time.
A study published in National Library of Medicine revealed that 79% out of 73 adults with anxiety and sleep disorder reported that the level of anxiety have dropped during the first month and continue so throughout the period of trial from using CBD.
Apart from using CBD oil for a massage you can drop the CBD oil under your tongue too. You can always take CBD before, during or after your massage or CBD alone on its own works wonders. Using CBD oil orally can help your body to absorb CBD effectively. For most people it would take 15-30 minutes to start feeling the effects from CBD. Always start with low dosage and increase the amount if needed.
A good example of CBD oil is Mellow CBD Oil made from CBD isolate with pure CBD and no THC. But if you are looking for THC along with CBD and other cannabinoids to ensure that you received the complete entourage effect then we have Mellow Full Spectrum CBD Oil both available from Mellow Organic.
