The Magic of CBD in the Spa

Ways to add CBD to your spa menu 

The magic and glory of Cannabidiol (CBD) from Hemp is a fountain of youth that your body will respond to in shocking and exciting ways through receptors that exist in your body known as the Endocannabinoid System or ECS. Two ECS receptors called CB1 and CB2, receive the CBD molecule and turn it into proteins called Anandamide and 2-AG. The increased flow of these proteins in your bloodstream creates homeostasis in your physiological systems, reducing inflammation in the body. 

Spa owners and aestheticians can incorporate CBD into their services in various ways that will help the consumer achieve greater results and faster healing times.   

The FDA does not currently allow any manufacturers of CBD to make any claims about the efficacy of the plant. Still, thousands of studies are available online through various Universities around the globe.  

CBD can be made in three ways. The best of which is defined as “Full Spectrum,” meaning seven different Cannabidiol molecules that include the Hemp version of THC, “Broad Spectrum,” which is six molecules sans the THC molecule, and “Isolate,” which means just the CBD molecule. The effectiveness of CBD in your body is incumbent on the milligram count and which type of CBD you are using.  

“CBD topically and orally will combat acne by reducing the inflammation in the skin.”

Most hemp products in the beauty sphere are being manufactured with “Isolate,” which is why you do not have the desired effect that you have been promised. Full Spectrum CBD works in what is called the “Entourage Effect,” with the presence of THC molecule binding the six other Cannabinoids to your CB1 and CB2 receptors. 

The second most crucial aspect of success with CBD in products and practice is the Milligram count in the product or application. The average female weighing anywhere from 120 to 180 pounds will need a daily supplement of 50 mg of full-spectrum CBD to achieve homeostasis in her physiological systems. CBD is not aspirin. It is a daily routine that is easily incorporated through sublingual application to achieve less pain, a balanced endocrine system, the destruction of calcium deposits from scars and stretch marks, glowing skin, healthier hair, healing of bruises, and in a lovely way, make your feet hurt less.  

Every spa needs to have a Full Spectrum 1400+mg jar of salve in their toolbox for use on areas treated with fillers or Botox to alleviate bruising and swelling and ease the pain. Salves are also useful for ablative and non-ablative laser treatment areas to alleviate pain and usher in faster healing times. If Salicylic, Glycolic, and TCA peels are on your menu, applying CBD post-peel will alleviate redness, heat and help the skin heal faster. For ablated skin, a CBD spray with a high mg count will help reduce inflammation and increase healing time.  

Similarly, CO2 laser treatment areas experience 50% faster healing times with CBD than without. When you think about the two-week recovery time for a CO2 laser being the barrier to increased sales, finding a way to cut recovery time in half and with less pain is in every aspect a means to increase sales. Beauty does not have to mean pain or sacrifice. Decreased downtime and a more comfortable experience translates to a filled appointment calendar.  

50 mg Full Spectrum Lip Balms are ideal for selling in your spa for lip injections to help ease pain and bruising on the lip. 

There are multiple studies conducted regarding CBD and acne that prove its viability. CBD topically and orally will combat acne by reducing the inflammation in the skin. Topical facial creams with at least a 500 mg Full Spectrum count that are used daily will calm irritated skin and reduce unwanted breakouts in adults while creating a glowing effect.  

Hyperpigmentation on the face can be addressed with a 30mg face mask used three times a week or 50 mg full spectrum patches placed directly on the treatment area.  

CBD has a fountain of youth effect on your body and skin. The antioxidants in Full Spectrum CBD are a one-way topical use that helps lessen the visible signs of aging. By counteracting free radicals damage and reducing the look of inflammation, CBD anti-aging creams and serums visibly reduce wrinkles, dullness, and redness in the skin. Your skin will feel hydrated and glowing.  

CBD is here to stay. Incorporating it into your spa services will create a bond of trust between you and your patients because you gave them a product of real value to address their needs.
