What is CBD Massage?
Cannabidiol (CBD) works on the Endocannabinoid System (ECS) in your body. This system works to regulate pain, immune function, and sleep among other things. The two primary receptors of the endocannabinoid systems are CB1 and CB2. These receptors are found all over the body and can be utilized by applying CBD in a topical form to block pain, reduce inflammation and promote a feeling of calmness and well-being. When included in a massage, CBD’s interaction with your endocannabinoid system can induce several beneficial effects without causing the “high”.
