Does CBD massage make you high?

One of the biggest misconceptions surrounding CBD products is that they are able to make you feel “high”. If you are unsure as to what we mean by “high”, we are talking about psychoactive experiences that you can get as a side effect from THC. THC is a chemical compound that is found in cannabis plants and so too is CBD. However, there is one major difference, these two chemical compounds are not the same. CBD contains little, if any THC. It is impossible for CBD products to be sold on the market if they contain over 0.3% THC. This certainly isn’t enough for you to feel “high”, therefore you have nothing to worry about when it comes to taking CBD goods and shouldn’t let it hold you back when you’re in search of the best treatment for your body, for example this CBD cream for pain relief.

What is a CBD Massage?

A new type of treatment that we are seeing more of is a CBD massage. A CBD massage is very similar to any other massage except the lotion that is used is different, and in our opinion better.

Within the lotion used for the massage, the key ingredient is CBD, also known as cannabidiol. It’s extremely good for your skin as it is overhauled with benefits, both mentally and physically. CBD, when applied to the skin, or in fact applied in many other ways, like through balms, bath bombs, gummies and vapes, works very well with your immune system and your brain. Also, what we have learnt from our CBD expert, Ieva Kubiliutee, who has a psychology BSc (Honours), is that these CBD products are also rapid acting, meaning they get to work straight away.

The CBD will begin interacting with your endocannabinoid system, which will begin healing your body. If you’re new to CBD massages, then it’s important you’re aware of the difference in doses. For a beginner, we strongly recommend starting with a small dose and then later increasing once you become used to the product. For contect, a small concentration would be between 250mg – 300mg and a high concentration would be around 1500mg.

The masseuse performing the massage will talk you through everything you need to know prior to the massage and then once that’s done, it’s time for you to relax. Immediately after the massage you should already feel loose and relaxed. Your muscles shouldn’t feel as stiff anymore either. Over the next few days this should remain the same and your body should begin to feel brand new, especially if you’ve been carrying these aches and pains for a while.

Benefits of CBD

  • Anti-inflammatory, antifungal, antibacterial properties.
  • Increases serotonin levels to increase happiness.
  • Excellent for muscle aches and pains.
  • Many different product types.
  • Long-lasting benefits.

Should You Get a CBD Massage? We certainly recommend you try a CBD massage for yourself. The positive feedback from this treatment suggests it is definitely worthwhile. If a massage isn’t something you’re comfortable with, not to worry, you can try out a whole host of other CBD treatments, for example the Loxa Beauty CBD lip balm.
