Every time you leave your house, you’re likely to find at least one advertisement for CBD products. After the Agriculture Improvement Act in 2018 and the removal of hemp from the Controlled Substances Act, CBD oil derived from hemp has become increasingly popular as it continues to integrate into the health and wellness markets. The CBD market is predicted to increase from $311.8 million in 2019 to $1251.8 million in 2024.
What was once an illegal product with negative connotations, has now turned into an exciting product not only for those interested in alternative health, but the everyday consumer as well, making its way into certain stores belonging to CVS, Walgreens, Ulta Beauty, Urban Outfitters, and more.
Whether it’s the mystique of the product or the heavily touted benefits of CBD oil, it is certainly all the rage right now and has opened doors for more people to experience the benefits of plant-derived products and other alternative medicines.
Today, CBD oil has made its way not only into consumer products such as teas, gummies, vapor, and more. But it’s also become readily available at spas and salons as add-on services in the form of topical analgesic products (such as massage oils and lotions) to help provide additional pain relief and relaxation to specific points of the body (a great complement to take your massage to the next level of nourishment).
Since adding our CBD spa treatment service last year, we’ve seen a significant number of people not only booking our CBD spa treatment services but reporting a deep state of relaxation and natural alleviation of muscle and back pain, at the end of their treatment.
If you haven’t yet experienced the benefits of CBD, you may want to book a CBD spa treatment at Balance Spa to see what the buzz is all about!
What is CBD Oil?
CBD (short for cannabidiol) is taken directly from the hemp plant, a cousin of marijuana, and is the plant’s second most active ingredient. Many concerns around CBD are that it may have psychoactive effects like THC, but it does not cause an altered mental state, commonly referred to as a high. Rather, it’s been known to have many health benefits. To learn more about how it works, check out our last blog post on our CBD spa treatments.
Studies show that taking CBD orally can help treat anxiety symptoms and insomnia. Additionally, it has helped reduce seizures in children who suffer from epilepsy (particularly Dravet and Lennox-Gastaut), to the extent that the first seizure medication to contain CBD has been approved by the FDA, Epidiolex.
CBD oil may also help treat different kinds of chronic pain when applied on the skin. CBD oil can reduce pain caused by arthritis, inflammation and neuropathy.
There is more to learn about the health benefits of CBD and more studies that need to be conducted. However, if you’re interested in trying CBD, a CBD spa treatment is a great place to start.
Although there are little known negative side effects to CBD, if you are taking any other medications, we recommend talking with a doctor first to make sure there are no contraindications.

CBD Oil In Spas
Spas around the country are now offering CBD spa treatments. From massages to manicures, wellness centers everywhere are exploring the benefits of CBD oil. Spas are known for using plant-based methods and natural forms of healing to relieve stress and pain. So, it makes sense that they’d give CBD oil a try for its anti-inflammatory and relaxing qualities.
At Balance Spa, our CBD spa treatments have become one of our most popular services for clients who experience muscle soreness from workouts and athletic activities, deal with daily stressors leading to back pain and tightness, and have chronic pain.
The Future of CBD Oil
Our CBD massages are popular for a reason. CBD is more than just a passing trend. Rather, it is only going to continue to grow in its popularity as we learn more about its health benefits.
