As a massage therapist, you’re focus is helping boost the wellness of your clients. Here’s how CBD oil may help you provide your clientele with even more natural health benefits.
Massage therapists have rightfully become curious about the wellness properties of CBD and how they can boost the natural health benefits they’re able to offer clients in their practice.
Incorporating CBD oil into your massage therapy sessions with clients can be an innovative way to make them more unique and beneficial.
Additionally, introducing your clients to the natural benefits of CBD oil is an exciting new way to help your clients maintain their wellness and balance in between your regular sessions.
Interested in learning more about what CBD oil can offer your massage practice? Here we outline CBD oil and its benefits in massage therapy so you can best decide if you want to incorporate CBD oil into your practice and offer it to your clients.
What is CBD Oil?
Cannabidiol (CBD) oil is a natural, non-psychoactive botanical concentrate extracted from the stalks and seeds of hemp. High in the compound CBD, this exciting type of cannabis oil has become highly sought after in recent years because of its natural wellness and balancing properties.
One of the most exciting restorative compounds today, CBD is a cannabinoid, a class of over 100 chemical compounds present in cannabis plants like hemp. Sharing a similar molecular structure to the body’s own cannabinoids, CBD interacts with the body’s native systems to alter the release of neurotransmitters to promote rejuvenation and balance.
Once extracted from hemp, CBD oil can be processed into a number of supplements designed to boost the body’s ability to reach and maintain homeostasis.
Because CBD oil comes from low-THC hemp, its natural benefits can be experienced without any psychoactive effects, making it safe and ideal for everyone to use.
Why is CBD Oil Beneficial for Wellness?
The wellness and balancing properties of CBD oil can augment the relaxation and restorative work of your massage therapy.
Through its interaction with the body’s native systems, CBD oil products can be used to help your customers achieve wellbeing by promoting proper sleep, appetite, metabolism, immune response, and more.
When plant-based cannabinoids like CBD are absorbed, they interact with special cannabinoid receptors. Cannabinoid receptors are a crucial element of the body’s endocannabinoid system, a major regulatory network that keeps a wide array of functions and physiological processes in balance and working efficiently.
Plant-derived cannabinoids like CBD mimic the roles of the body’s own endogenous (naturally-occurring) cannabinoids, which allows the compound to stimulate the endocannabinoid system and encourage its efforts to achieve beneficial effects in the body.
Pure CBD hemp oil is also naturally an incredible source of vitamins, omega fatty acids, vitamins, terpenes, and chlorophyll that make it valuable for encouraging radiant and smooth skin.
Our understanding of CBD has expanded over recent years and complementary and alternative health professionals like you are more aware today than ever of the cannabinoid’s potential. Users of CBD oil products often report an overall wellbeing and a sense of relaxation that many massage therapists find to be beneficial for their customers.
How Can You Use CBD in Your Massage Practice?
CBD oil products come in a variety of consumption types, including botanical topical salves that can be directly incorporated into your massage therapy sessions.
Massaged into sore and tired muscles and joints, CBD topicals are absorbed into the skin’s epidermis and pores where they can interact with nearby cannabinoid receptors for targeted and localized benefits. These CBD-infused balms, salves, lotions, and oils have become popular among those who are regularly physically active, as well as those managing tightness from job-related activities.
With their luxurious cocoa butter texture, CBD topicals lend themselves perfectly for a massage setting. Use them as your main massage oil or lotion for reducing friction, or incorporate them when addressing particularly tough knots or sensitive areas.
RSHO™ CBD hemp oil salve and Dixie Botanicals® Hemp oil Salvation Balm offer 50 mg of CBD per jar. These luxurious topicals combine full-spectrum hemp oil with ingredients like beeswax, camphora essential oils, and cedarwood and lavender oils that will leave your customers feeling revitalized.
For your physically active clients looking for targeted comforting effects, HempMeds® Active Relief Roll-On is formulated with 10 mg of hemp extract and cooling menthol for fast-acting relief.

Sending Clients Home with Wellness Properties of HempMeds® CBD
You can further encourage health and wellbeing with your clients after they leave your office by offering them CBD supplements designed for everyday use. In addition to CBD topicals, CBD oil products come in other types of supplements, such as pure hemp oil, capsules, tinctures, liquids, and CBD isolate powder.
HempMeds® carries the safe and effective CBD oil supplements your clients want. Our CBD oil products cover a wide range of consumption methods, concentrations, and price points, fitting the many different needs of your massage clients.
Pure CBD Hemp Oils:
Our CBD hemp oil in its most unadulterated form, Real Scientific Hemp Oil™ (RSHO™) is a thick, viscous oil that contains high levels of CBD (up to 120 mg), as well as the essential vitamins, minerals, fatty acids, and other trace cannabinoids naturally found in hemp. RSHO™ is perfect for those clients seeking the highest concentration of CBD in their supplement.
RSHO™ comes in 3 labels (Green, Blue, and Gold) and provides a high-CBD hemp oil supplement with minimal processing. Learn more about the differences between RSHO™ Green, Blue, and Gold Labels here.
For those interested in a lower potency CBD supplement, CBD tinctures blend our award-winning hemp CBD oil with vegetable glycerine or medium-chain triglyceride (MCT) oil for a thinner consistency and reduced overall strength. Low potency products like tinctures, containing between 1 mg and 10.5 mg per serving, can help your clients maintain a constant level of CBD in their system all day long.
RSHO™, Dixie Botanicals®, and Cibdex® all feature tinctures in their brand. While RSHO™ tinctures are unflavored, Dixie Botanicals® and Cibdex® offer all-natural flavors like vanilla, cinnamon, and peppermint, in addition to an unflavored option.
Our RSHO™ brand also carries a line of liquid supplements, which combine pure hemp oil with MCT oil for a mid-potency product. RSHO™ Liquid offers the benefits of pure RSHO™ hemp oil with the ease and portability of tinctures.
While RSHO™ Liquid can also be taken on a spoon and swished in the mouth before swallowing, because it’s made using coconut oil, it can also easily be added to a fruit smoothie, a salad dressing, or any other healthy food. Read our guide to creative ways to enjoy your RSHO™ Liquid here, or come up with your own favorite method to take RSHO™ Liquid.
Several of our brands (RSHO™ and Cibdex®) also offer our CBD hemp oil in a convenient capsule form for unrivaled ease and portability. CBD capsules are an ideal choice for those clients who are already taking daily vitamins and supplements or who are looking for the most convenient way to get their daily CBD.
For customers with a preference, RSHO™ capsules come in Green, Blue, and Gold Labels, contain 25 mg of CBD each, and are combined with 200 mg of calcium and 200 mg of our proprietary blend of powdered turmeric root and white willow bark for added botanical effects. Cibdex® also offers similar 25 mg CBD capsules, but without the turmeric root or white willow bark.
RSHO™ CBD Isolate:
At 99% purity, RSHO™ CBD Isolate is the most potent CBD product available on the market. Found here in its pure crystalline form, CBD isolate is a fine white powder containing only the CBD chemical compound. CBD isolate is an all-natural product, extracted from the hemp plant and refined down to an incredible purity.
When consumed off a specially-equipped vape pen, CBD isolate can be vaped, allowing the user to inhale the pure CBD vapor. CBD isolate can also be dissolved into vape liquids for a CBD infused-vape.
For oral consumption, RSHO™ CBD Isolate is easily consumed as is, mixed with a carrier oil like coconut oil, or blended into smoothies or other foods and beverages.
Is CBD Legal and Safe for Your Clients?
Hemp products, including CBD oil supplements, are legal in the United States provided they are manufactured from imported hemp. Hemp is a variety of cannabis that contains no more than 0.3% THC per dry weight.
Naturally low in THC, hemp-derived CBD oil is non-psychoactive and won’t cause any euphoric or otherwise adverse side effects. CBD oil is non-addictive, and the compound is considered to be safe and non-toxic for humans, even at high amounts.
To further ensure the safety and quality of our CBD oil products, we extract our hemp oil using safe supercritical CO2. As part of our Triple Lab Tested™ standard, our oil is examined three separate times throughout the manufacturing process to ensure consistent cannabinoid concentration and safety from any potential contamination.
