CBD in the Spa
By this point, you’ve probably heard friends, family or co-workers talking about CBD. That’s right – the benefits of this hemp-derived product are reaching the mainstream. CBD boasts unparalleled wellness properties. It has been found to lower anxiety levels, reduce inflammation and aid in skincare. It’s looking like 2019 is the year that CBD breaks through once and for all.
But don’t take our word for it. Vogue writes: “While clinical research for the therapeutic phytocannabinoid is ongoing, and understanding the natural remedy is key when navigating the space (some brands are derived from different sources, like hemp, while others are purely synthetic), it’s proving to be promising—so expect the breadth of CBD-infused products to expand even further in the New Year.”
As a result of the growing CBD buzz, spas are getting in on the action, offering CBD-infused treatments that will leave you refreshed and rejuvenated.

More CBD Spa Options
CBD massages are just the beginning. Spas across the country have introduced an array of treatments. Discover the benefits of CBD hydrotherapy at Los Angeles’ Larchmont Sanctuary Spa, which uses a CBD and Epsom salt-infused bath bomb for a rejuvenating soak. The Green Tea Spa in San Diego has gone all in on CBD, offering CBD facials, CBD body wraps, a CBD-infused foot soak and scrub, and even a CBD beverage to kick off the experience.
One thing also worth noting is CBD’s massive skincare and beauty potential. Thought to be powerful antioxidants, CBD serums, moisture and balms can battle signs of aging. CBD also contains antibacterial elements as well, which can help with skin conditions, such as rosacea, eczema and psoriasis. Even more, CBD is valuable source of vitamins and adds essential fatty acids, which means less breakouts.
