Natural Awakenings Tucson

CBD Massage May Help Chronic Pain

There is a growing awareness of the benefits of CBD (cannabidiol), a naturally occurring non-psychoactive compound in cannabis plants. CBD doesn’t produce the “high” associated with THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), another compound found in cannabis.
          
Hemp is a phenotype of the cannabis species containing less than 0.3 percent THC. Hemp plants produce a broad range of cannabinoids—CBD being the most abundant—that play important roles in the effectiveness of CBD products.
   
A full spectrum CBD product contains components that support wellness and balance, including phytocannabinoids, flavonoids and terpenes, which work synergistically with the body’s endocannabinoid system (ECS).
   
Identified in the early 1990s, the ECS is a complex cell-signaling system composed of endocannabinoid neurotransmitters that bind to cannabinoid receptors. The two main endocannabinoid receptors are CB1 receptors, mostly found in the central nervous system, and CB2 receptors, mostly found in the peripheral nervous system, especially immune cells.
   
When cannabinoids are added to massage oil, they enter the endocannabinoid system via the skin, helping ease and relax muscles and reduce pain and inflammation. CBD oil is also hailed for its ability to reduce symptoms of anxiety. Massage could be the most effective way to do this, as the effects of a CBD oil massage can last up to two hours. For those who have not yet experienced a CBD-infused oil massage, there’s nothing quite as relaxing and satisfying.

Soulistic Healing Center, in Tubac, now offers full spectrum CBD oil-infused massage to complement its variety of healing modalities which include craniosacral therapy, reflexology, reiki, scalar wave laser therapy, IonCleanse foot soak detoxification, Morontia Soul Counseling and Tron Therapy. Connect at 520-398-3970 or SoulisticHealingCenter.org. See ad, page 13.
