The venerable Spa at the Vail Vitality Center at Vail Mountain Lodge has been delivering performance-based treatments for three decades. Recently, the spa introduced several treatments that incorporate CBD oils, including the CBD Massage and the High Mountain Scrub, which consists of a hemp and coffee scrub, followed by a full body massage with Nature’s Root’s organic cannabinoid oil. The CBD treatments are great for people dealing with chronic joint and muscle issues or those who are having trouble adjusting to the altitude, says Leya Nicolait, director of spa and fitness.

Nature’s Root, Longmont
This Longmont-based company launched its CBD-enhanced product line in 2014 and opened a dedicated spa in early 2015.

Sure, you’ve enhanced your massages with essential oils like lavender or eucalyptus in the past. Or maybe you’ve even experimented with using botanicals like arnica to soothe sore muscles. But here in Colorado—the land of legal weed—we are always looking for ways to elevate our recovery processes. That’s why many spas across the state are spiking their services with cannabidiol (CBD) products.
Elevate your recovery process with spa services featuring cannabidiol products.
• Stress reduction: Stress often manifests as tension in the head, neck, shoulders, back and other body parts. This tension can lead to muscle strain and pain. A CBD massage can reduce or even eliminate tension by increasing the blood flow to the affected areas.
• Improved freedom of motion: Pain in the body restricts range of motion. However, a massage with CBD oil can provide greater range of movement.
Similar to other massages with essential oils, the lotion or pain relieving salve is applied topically to specific areas to maximize the benefits of the treatment.
Our Denver CBD massage works through interaction with your body’s endocannabinoid system. This system regulates various functions in the body, including the following:
How Does CBD Massage Work?
Our Denver CBD massage uses lotion and salves containing cannabidiol or CBD.
The endocannabinoid system uses two different kinds of receptors: CB1 and CB2. Most CB1 receptors are located in the brain while CB2 receptors are all over the body.
Your body naturally produces these cannabinoids, but your body’s natural production levels might drop due to several factors. A CBD massage enhances your body’s natural functions in order to simulate similar results as those from your body’s natural production.
• Lower blood pressure: Continued pain in the body elevates blood pressure, which affects your general well-being. CBD massage can aid in the reduction of high blood pressure, thus improving health.
• Enhance skin health and clear up acne: Acne is often due to inflammation and overactive oil production. CBD can address these issues, which will lead to a reduction in blemishes. The substance also helps properly regulate skin oil production, leading to fewer breakouts.
