What is CBD?
CBD stands for Cannabidiol, one of the many chemical compounds found in the cannabis plant family, the scientific name of which is Cannabis sativa and includes both hemp and marijuana plants. Not all CBD products are the same and there are different kinds of CBD.
What type of CBD is used in CBD oil massage?
CBD Isolate is pure CBD and does not contain any terpenes or THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), the psychotropic compound that gets you high.
Benefits of CBD oil massage:
Cannabidiol, the active cannabinoid in marijuana has been shown to have anti-inflammatory effects. Inflammation can really do a number on your body, especially on the joints and muscles. So, adding a little bit of this oil to a massage can ease sore muscles, and aching joints.
By reducing inflammation, a massage with CBD oil can help people heal faster, and experience less pain.
Adding CBD oil to massage can accelerate pain-relief during massage through the endocannabinoid system. Every organ in our bodies contains receptors including our brain, the skin, nerve cells and immune cells. CBD massage cream provides relief from joint and musculoskeletal pain.
CBD oil taps into our CB1 brain receptor, which is associated with serotonin, a neurotransmitter that contributes to feelings of well-being and happiness. Adding this oil to your massage can increase the alleviation of anxiety.
Sensory Stimulation Heightened
Because CBD has a positive effect on the receptors in the body that control serotonin levels, CBD not only lowers anxiety levels, as previously mentioned, it also heightens one’s mood and alertness.
Demystifying CBD Oil - The Truths!
CBD Oil is not psychoactive: People are still often cautious of using CBD oils as they sometimes confuse CBD with THC, but there are actually stark differences between the two. While THC is known to get people high or alter their state of mind, CBD does neither. It is not psychoactive and also has more medical use than THC.
CBD Oil is not illegal: Congress passed the U.S. Farm bill in December of 2018 which made medical CBD oil legal for use.
