The naturally therapeutic (and legal!) effects of CBD oils derived from organically grown cannabis are forming the basis of pioneering spa treatments at Cornwall's Budock Vean Hotel.
The Natural Health Spa manager Martina Crkonova, an expert in Chinese and Herbal Medicine, has devised the new therapies in partnership with the country house hotel in its natural surroundings on the banks of the Helford River.
“Our decision to add CBD to our Spa Menu is beyond being 'on trend',” says Martina, “and it's based on the vast therapeutic potential of cannabinoids. We are excited to incorporate CBD into our Spa as part of our continuous efforts to source the best in beauty and wellness solutions for our guests and clients.”
CBD - the non-toxic, non-psycho-active component of the hemp plant has an incredible healing range.
Martina says “CBD is an effective, natural way to target chronic pain, arthritis, skin conditions and stress and it can tackle feelings of depression and anxiety while enhancing feelings of well being, relaxation and calmness.”
Natural Health Spa clients can choose their treatment and then build their experiences with add-ons and technologies of Martina's CBD Therapy range – all of which are lab-tested and certified to the highest UK standards. Guests can choose to add CBD oil to massages, manicures and pedicures, among other options. In an effort to promote prolonged CBD use and aftercare, CBD Therapy products including body balm, massage oil, bath salts, lip balm and the brand's salve hero product will be available for purchase in the Natural Health Spa.
The new CBD enhanced treatments aim to provide benefits including increased mineralisation, collagen production, moisturisation, anti-inflammation, pain reduction, relaxation and overall improved skin health. Natural Health Spa treatments will combine the opportunity to add CBD enhancements to some existing treatments such as Hot Stones, Himalayan Salt Stones and Wraps or Deep Tissue Massage for a rejuvenating, relaxing experience.
