Have you tried the CBD lotions we’ve included among the curated skincare product lines at our top-rated San Diego wellness spa?
Some people are hesitant to try products made with CBD. Let’s consider some of the commonly held misconceptions:
Myth: Something with CBD will make me high. While the product is derived from hemp or marijuana leaves, stalks, or flowers, CBD is not psychoactive. THC (short for tetrahydrocannabinol) is the chemical component of marijuana that gets people high – THC activates the brain and produces alterations in consciousness. Studies indicate that CBD eases anxiety and improves mood by boosting a natural feel-good endocannabinoid found in the human body called Anandamide. Some people compare this to the way we feel better after exercising or being with friends.
Myth: I could get addicted to CBD. According to World Health Organization (WHO) findings from 2017, as long as CBD is derived naturally, it does not create dependence or addiction. The World Anti-Doping Agency stopped including CBD on its list of banned substances the same year.
Myth: CBD is natural, so it’s okay for everyone. Like all herbs (or even some foods – like grapefruit!), CBD could interact poorly with medications. Always consult your healthcare provider before you start using CBD if you are taking prescription medications. It’s also not recommended for use during pregnancy or for children.
When the WHO released its 2017 report about CBD, it noted that there is some preliminary evidence that CBD can be helpful for a variety of conditions. Other preliminary studies suggest CBD could be beneficial for other health concerns.
It seems CBD can be helpful for those who need help managing:
- Parkinson’s Disease
- Multiple Sclerosis
- Anxiety and depression
- Sleep disorders
- Menstrual cramps
- Hypertension (high blood pressure)
We’ve heard that different guests at our top-rated San Diego wellness spa respond differently to CBD – just as we all react differently to other herbs. Some people swear by it improving their health and wellness, while others like the lotions or other products but don’t feel any different than they usually do. Everyone seems to agree that our CBD lotions are soothing and nourishing to the body.
