Businesses across cannabis legal states are beginning to pop up, and not all of them focus on smoking or eating the plant. While most people focus on the medicinal (or recreational) properties of cannabis, people are also discovering that cannabis can be just as beneficial to the body when applied to the skin as a crème or tincture.
One such business is LoDo Massage Studio in Denver.
This spa offers various creative cannabis-based beauty products, such as Mile High Massage using Apothecanna’s Pain Cream – the spa’s signature massage lotion.
Perhaps surprisingly, even some doctors are getting onboard. Physicians agree that topical cannabinoids contain anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties.
For those with concerns about getting high by using a topical cannabis product, rest easy. These products can’t reach the blood system through your dermal layer, thus there are no psychogenic effects. Rather, your muscles simply reach such a state of relaxation that massage therapists can provide a deeper tissue massage.
Cannabis oil is also utilized by certain spas in cannabis-friendly states to reduce redness for beauty procedures (i.e. waxing and/or tweezing) and has shown promise for helping ease skin problems like acne.
