We are often asked the question, “what should I do to prepare for my massage?” Before your cannabis massage session with Primal Therapeutics we highly recommend two things: a nice soak using our Primal Healing Soak & Scrub to open up your pores and relax your muscles and a hot cup of Stillwater Tea to entice your relaxation. Performing these two rituals can amplify your cannabis infused massage therapy experience.
First lets talk about the power of a nice hot bath. Hydrotherapy has been used for centuries to provide relief from aches, pains and stress. A good soak calms the nervous system and open your pores allowing for total absorption of the organic infused oils and salves we use for cannabis massage therapy sessions. Our bodies are mostly water so this makes soaking in it incredibly beneficial. A warm bath makes the blood flow easier, it also makes the body more oxygenated by allowing you to breathe deeper and slower. As you may have had your massage therapist tell you in the past, “remember to breathe.” Deep breathing is so important to keep your muscles relaxed during your treatment session.
It is not just about taking a bath though. It is about enhancing that bath. By adding essential oils, minerals or salts you amplify the effect of the bath itself. We recommend Primal Healing Soak & Scrub. Every ingredient is organic and sustainable. The entire product line is made in small craft batches. In addition to Hemp CBD the herbal content is designed to provide the most therapeutic effects possible and it happens to smell like a lavender field of heaven. The aromatherapy alone will send you onto a cloud of relaxation.
Now let’s talk tea. It has been said that green tea is the healthiest drink on the planet. It is full of anti-oxidants, improves brain function, and has been shown to improve over-all health. Black tea not only strengthens the immune system it moisturizes your skin from the inside out. Tea composed of mint leaves has been known to reduce pain, eliminate inflammation, and relax the body and mind. As you see tea is highly beneficial all on its own, then add water soluble THC or CBD, mind blown.
Stillwater keeps the dosing low and we like that. Micro-dosing is true plant medicine. The goal of Endocannabinoid therapy is to activate the system. It is possible consume too much, especially for those patients we have coming from outside of Colorado. We also recommend to patients and consumers to start low and slow. You can always consume more later. Ingredients are key and Stillwater uses all organic high quality ingredients. Their products come in three different strengths for every level of consumer.
Stillwater comes in Mellow Mint, Gentle Green and Blissful Black and each individual serving is 2.5mg. Whitewater comes in all the same flavors but the individual servings are 10mg each. For patients and consumers wanting to add a few more milligrams of THC or CBD to their tea, guacamole, smoothie, queso or truly anything your heart desires you can use their Ripple. These tiny packets of water soluble THC allow you to infuse anything you eat or drink discreetly.
Cannabis massage is incredible. You will feel the difference the infusion of cannabinoids makes. Now you have the knowledge you need to take your experience to a higher level of healing and feeling. We look forward to seeing you soon!
