We all know that massages and stretching are good for us and the wear and tear of daily life means sometimes we just need to regain some balance inside and out!

But did you know that adding a CBD oil or cream is the perfect complement to a massage or stretch session?

Just Add CBD To Help You Unwind

Stretching and massage with a high-quality CBD cream feels luxurious for your tired body. It’s also nature’s athletic edge by, resting your muscles, releasing tension, and targeting any temporary, occasional discomfort you’re experiencing!

In fact, more and more spas, assisted stretching spaces and relaxation centers are offering CBD add-ons to their treatments and stores and it’s easy to see why.

Here are some surprising benefits of CBD:

  • World’s Best Moisturizer

If you use a CBD cream that contains hemp oil, you’ll experience the benefit of soft and supple skin. Hemp oil is extremely moisturizing, conditioning, and protects the skin.

  • Targets Temporary, Occasional Discomfort

We all have those common spots of temporary occasional discomfort; CBD works to not only calm and hydrate the body, but it also leaves you feeling refreshed and nurtured, in part by releasing the tension that causes that temporary, occasional discomfort.

  • Reduces Tension & Revives Your Body

By activating the pathways of existing cannabinoid (CB2) receptors in the body, CBD helps to warm your muscles, reduces tension, and leaves you feeling refreshed.

  • Enhances Relaxation

When we feel out overwhelmed, it can be hard to relax. Because CBD facilitates calmness and relaxation, it means you can unwind and be better prepared to keep up with your busy life when your massage session ends.

  • Get Back to Balance

Because CBD promotes positive energy, elevates your mood, and helps you find peace and clarity, you can find balance again and get those bliss molecules pumping!

All of the above benefits combine to allow the body to enjoy a deeper state of relaxation, rejuvenating your body, and allowing you or the therapist to better support those problem areas.

Plus, a daily CBD massage is one of the best ways to decompress after a long day. And if you don’t have access to a center that offers CBD treatments, never fear, just enlist the help of a good friend or loved one, point to where it hurts, and soak up your in-house spa session!

Of course, while the offer of a massage is always glorious, you don’t have to run to a spa in order to reap the benefits—you can give yourself a CBD massage right at home if you have a CBD topical. If you want to massage your calf, for instance, it’s best done with the help of a tool like a rolling pin. Apply the lotion to your desired spot and then roll over it to work away knots. Depending on what muscles are tight, you can try various CBD products to amp up your experience. Consider it the highest form of self-care.

Let’s take a deeper dive into what CBD is, how it can be helpful in a wellness plan and what are some of the various CBD supplements on the market.


One of the most exciting restorative compounds today, CBD is a cannabinoid, a class of over 100 chemical compounds present in cannabis plants like hemp. Sharing a similar molecular structure to the body’s own cannabinoids, CBD interacts with the body’s native systems to alter the release of neurotransmitters to promote rejuvenation and balance.

Cannabidiol (CBD) oil is a natural, non-psychoactive botanical concentrate extracted from the stalks and seeds of hemp. High in the compound CBD, this exciting type of cannabis oil has become highly sought after in recent years because of its natural wellness and balancing properties.

Once extracted from hemp, CBD oil can be processed into a number of supplements designed to boost the body’s ability to reach and maintain homeostasis.

Since CBD oil comes from low-THC hemp, its natural benefits can be experienced without any psychoactive effects, making it safe and ideal for everyone to use.


When plant-based cannabinoids like CBD are absorbed, they interact with special cannabinoid receptors. Cannabinoid receptors are a crucial element of the body’s endocannabinoid system, a major regulatory network that keeps a wide array of functions and physiological processes in balance and working efficiently.

The wellness and balancing properties of CBD oil can augment the relaxation and restorative work of your massage therapy.

Through its interaction with the body’s native systems, CBD oil products can be used to help achieve wellbeing by promoting proper sleep, appetite, metabolism, immune response, and more.

Plant-derived cannabinoids like CBD mimic the roles of the body’s own endogenous (naturally-occurring) cannabinoids, which allows the compound to stimulate the endocannabinoid system and encourage its efforts to achieve beneficial effects in the body.

Pure CBD hemp oil is also naturally an incredible source of vitamins, omega fatty acids, vitamins, terpenes, and chlorophyll that make it valuable for encouraging radiant and smooth skin.

Here are some CBD Supplements to consider as part of a wellness regime:

Pure CBD Hemp OilsCBD hemp oil in its most unadulterated form is a thick, viscous oil that contains high levels of CBD (up to 120 mg), as well as the essential vitamins, minerals, fatty acids, and other trace cannabinoids naturally found in hemp.
TincturesFor those interested in a lower potency CBD supplement, CBD tinctures blend our award-winning hemp CBD oil with vegetable glycerine or medium-chain triglyceride (MCT) oil for a thinner consistency and reduced overall strength. Low potency products like tinctures, containing between 1 mg and 10.5 mg per serving, can help your clients maintain a constant level of CBD in their system all day long.
Tinctures can come in flavors like vanilla, cinnamon, and peppermint, in addition to an unflavored option.
LiquidsLiquid supplements combine pure hemp oil with MCT oil for a mid-potency product. This offers the benefits of pure hemp oil with the ease and portability of tinctures. Liquid can also be taken on a spoon and swished in the mouth before swallowing.
CBD CapsulesCBD capsules are an ideal choice for those clients who are already taking daily vitamins and supplements or who are looking for the most convenient way to get their daily CBD.

One last compound to discuss is CBD isolate

CBD Isolate:

Found here in its pure crystalline form, CBD isolate is a fine white powder containing only the CBD chemical compound. CBD isolate is an all-natural product, extracted from the hemp plant and refined down to an incredible purity.

When consumed off a specially-equipped vape pen, CBD isolate can be vaped, allowing the user to inhale the pure CBD vapor. CBD isolate can also be dissolved into vape liquids for a CBD infused-vape.

For oral consumption, CBD Isolate is easily consumed as is, mixed with a carrier oil like coconut oil, or blended into smoothies or other foods and beverages.
