As we now know, the benefits of CBD are numerous. The molecule is indeed both relaxing, anti-inflammatory and an excellent muscle relaxant. Its soothing action on the skin is also recognized. Logical consequence, more and moreCBD hemp oils for massage come onto the market. What are the real benefits of CBD massage oil, how to choose it (or make it!) And use it, this is our topic of the day!
The benefits of CBD on the skin
The benefits of CBD without actually consuming CBD, is it possible? Well yes, at least in part. Indeed, our skin (the largest organ in the human body, sorry) directly benefits from the action of cannabidiol. According to a 2014 study, cannabis could in particular serve as a natural dressing for certain wounds and wounds. The cutaneous route is therefore an effective means of enjoy the benefits of CBD at a local level, without influencing the functioning of the whole organism.
CBD-rich hemp oil is also said to be recommended in the treatment of itchy skin conditions. Applying hemp oil to the skin might as well relieve individuals suffering from eczema, psoriasis, dermatitis or acne rosacea. More interestingly, a hemp oil used for massage could act in prevention and thus make the skin more able to resist infections. Its benefits relate to attacks from bacteria as well as viruses and fungi.
CBD oil for massage: what for?
Opting for a CBD oil over a classic massage oil offers several advantages. Among the most common, let us mention in particular:
- Reduce muscle tension,
- Relieve skin irritations,
- Enjoy a massage oil also beneficial against skin problems (acne, psoriasis, etc.),
- Moisturize the skin deeply,
- Enjoy lasting effects, without fear of side effects.
- For a special occasion: we let you watch
CBD is also a great alternative to massage oils loaded with essential oils. The latter have a considerable ecological impact and are very difficult to recycle due to their high concentration. They also present neurotoxic risks, making them at least unusable by the youngest and pregnant women.
Choosing the right CBD oils for massage
Choosing the right CBD oil simply comes down to taking an interest in its composition, ensuring that its various ingredients are as healthy as possible and that no unnecessary substance “pollutes” the mixture unnecessarily.
- Origin of components: A serious dealer should be able to provide you with the exact cannabinoid concentration, as well as proof of the legality of the plant used for the extraction.
- Oil base used: a quality vegetable oil is preferred. It can be hemp seed oil, coconut oil or even sunflower seed oil. It is ideally from organic farming to avoid any presence of toxic chemicals.
- Conservative: no need to stuff a CBD oil for massage with chemical preservatives with questionable effects. Vitamin E is a natural preservative and a few drops are sufficient for long-term storage.
And that’s all ! No need for more ingredients to enjoy a moment of saving relaxation.
Hemp massage oil is used like any classic massage oil or balm. Simply spread some CBD massage oil on your hands, then begin massaging the skin as usual, placing more emphasis on areas of muscle tension.
