    WILL CBD MASSAGE OIL MAKE ME FEEL HIGH?

    The benefits of CBD massage oil include giving you the feeling of relaxation and general body and mind calmness. Getting a better understanding of CBD and CBD massage oil and how it works will give you a better understanding and answer many of your questions.

    Massage is a way to unwind, deal with any physical concerns and treat you to intense relaxation and calmness of the body and mind. CBD products should be on your radar to improve your health and wellness. CBD massage combines the benefits of massage and Cannabidiol to the body, a great relaxing treatment. Here CBD Tincture is used topically as a massage oil. People will raise concerns about its usage, and one of the major concerns is whether CBD massage oil can make someone high.

    What Is CBD?    

    CBD is an acronym for Cannabidiol, an extract of the hemp plant. CBD is obtained from the stalks and stem of the hemp plant, but CBD can also be harnessed from marijuana. It is because of this reason that CBD Tincture and its products that are federally legal are those that are harnessed from the hemp plant, which contains less than 0.3% THC content. Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) is the psychoactive compound of cannabis that is responsible for giving people a high sensation or feelings of intoxication. CBD is harnessed in powder form and mixed with other compounds to produce CBD oil.

    CBD Massage Oil 

    Moore(2019) stated that CBD massage oil is typical; CBD oil is mixed with a carrier oil. The carrier oils are mostly coconut or hemp seed oil. The type of carrier oil will depend on the brand, as different brands use different carrier oils for CBD massage oil production. Carrier oils may also include almond, sesame seed, olive, and other oils. This combination of CBD with carrier oil allows the user to benefit more from the massage oil without necessarily using a lot of CBD oil. Another perk of CBD massage oil is that you can create a blend of your own so long you have CBD oil and carrier oil of your preference.

    How CBD Massage Oil Works           

    Have you tried using CBD oil or CBD products topically or through ingestion? Several consumers of CBD report that CBD works better when ingested than when used topically. There is some truth in that but based on the fact that you are more likely to feel the effects of something internally than externally.

     Because of this, some people may doubt the power of CBD lotions, creams, and balms. However, when it comes to CBD massage oil, it's a different case whereby one is more likely to benefit from the effects of CBD than with CBD lotion or creams. This is because with CBD massage oil, the user is being rubbed on with the oil rather than just application, and the massage involved ensures that the user gets the most of the CBD benefits.

    Weston et al.  (2021) indicated that Cannabidiol in the CBD massage oil binds to the cannabinoid receptors in the body, particularly the endocannabinoid system, where they work to deal with the pain and inflammation, control the body functions, and reduce anxiety. CBD deals with external ailments when used externally while giving the body and mind relaxation and calmness.      

    CBD Massage   

    CBD massage is a therapy that uses CBD massage oil as an alternative to the regular massage oil. There is no big difference between CBD and regular massage; the techniques will match but depend on the masseuse's competency and skill. The feeling is no different if you have been to the spa or massage studio. However, unlike massage with regular massage oil, Perry& Howes (2011) reported that massage with CBD massage oil will combine the health and wellness benefits of CBD and the benefits of getting a massage.

    Typically, a massage may take as short as ten minutes and go for as long as two hours. If you have any physical issues or injuries, you can pinpoint them for the masseuse to be keen on those areas to help you recover. CBD massage will take your mind off things and give you a sense of relief as it soothes you.

    In most cases, you will be advised to leave the oil on your body for hours before washing it off. This way, you will benefit from the CBD massage oil more. It is also recommended that you avoid any form of exercise within the next twelve hours or too much work; The essence of a massage in the first place is to keep the body and mind in a state of calmness and relaxation. To get rid of the toxins in the body, consider drinking lots of water within the next 24 hours after the massage.

    Will CBD Massage Oil Makes Me Feel High?    

    In the course to learn more about CBD and CBD products, several people always raise concerns over some issues, and this is one commonly raised issue; The question of whether a product of CBD can make you high. The simplest answer to this question is 'NO'.  According to GEORGE& Wade (1999), CBD oil and its products cannot make you high whether you use the product topically or ingest it. CBD can be extracted from both marijuana and the hemp plant. CBD from marijuana has a greater concentration of THC than the concentration in the hemp plant. You must understand that CBD is only federally legal according to the laws of the states where it is allowed because of its THC content. Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) is one of the most predominant compounds in cannabis that is responsible for causing a high in users or inducing feelings of intoxication. Industrially grown and produced hemp must have a THC content of less than 0.3%. This is only common in full-spectrum CBD oil, one of the CBD oil types. Generally, CBD massage oil cannot get you high; rest assured you are safe using CBD massage oil or any other type of oil, for that matter.

    Conclusion  

    The composition of CBD massage oil entails CBD oil together with a carrier oil. The answer is no on whether CBD massage oil can get you high, so there is no cause for alarm about the safety of CBD massage oil. The formulation of CBD oil on its own only includes 0.3% of THC content, if any. The THC content will depend on the CBD used in the massage oil. THC is the component that causes a high in users.
