CBD Lotion and Your Massage: A Few Facts
When you’re in need of relaxation or pain relief, is there anything better than a good massage? How can adding CBD lotion to your massage therapy benefit you?
Although growing greatly in popularity, many people are still cautious about using CBD lotions as they confuse CBD with THC, but there is a significant difference between the two. While THC is known to get people high or alter their state of mind, CBD does neither. Cannabidiol (CBD for short) is a component in cannabis, but unlike tetrahydrocannabinol (THC)—the chemical responsible for most of cannabis’ psychological effects—CBD is not psychoactive.
CBD is absorbed through the skin and binds to the body’s own CB2 receptors. CBD has a pain-relieving and anti-inflammatory effect on the body once it connects with these receptors. It is not mind-altering nor habit-forming. THC free, non-psychoactive. There are no addictive qualities to CBD, and there are no known side effects.
CBD interacts with the Endocannabinoid System (ECS), which is found throughout the human body’s nervous system, organs, connective tissues, glands, and immune system. The Endocannabinoid System plays a crucial role in regulating our physiology, mood, and everyday experience When external forces disturb the body’s homeostasis, the endocannabinoid system helps our body push back and regain balance.

Cannabis compounds like CBD are thought to assist in the body’s ECS, which can be disrupted by an unhealthy diet, stress, or toxin exposure. Extensive preclinical research—much of it sponsored by the U.S. government—indicates that CBD has potent anti-inflammatory and anti-anxiety effects.
