JORDAN PERSON –
Jordan Person came to Colorado in 2010 as a medical marijuana refugee. Utilizing cannabis and other holistic therapies saved her life. She saw the health benefits of cannabis first hand on her own journey back to health and wanted to help educate the masses on what she learned. She found a way to combine her years in the medical field with her years spent working with medical marijuana, and Cannabis Infused Massage Therapy was created. All the topicals that Primal Therapeutics uses are made in-house. Person took classes in herbalism and created the recipe with her patients in mind using all organic ingredients in her creations. In 2017, Jordan began teaching Cannabis Massage 101 and Topicals Making 101 in an effort to provide anyone interested with the knowledge they would need to perform this trending modality. Therapists around the world are taking this course. Person is an advocate and an activist for the plant, proudly serving as executive director of Denver NORML.

When Primal Therapeutics first started we tried every topical we could get out hands on. There were only a few that were worthy of our patients. We needed topicals that would be good for a variety of skin disorders and types of pain as well as be viscous enough to apply to the entire body. As the years went by our desire for a better product increased. We are excited to announce you can now buy the products designed for our patients! Visit our SHOP here.
The more time we spent working with our patients learning about different disorders that we would be helping with the more we craved research about other herbs that can be used as plant medicine in our topicals. After several courses in herbalism we began to formulate our products. Using friends, family and regular clients as our test subjects we experimented until we received enough positive feedback that we had found the recipe we were looking for.
We currently have four topical products available. Our salve is called Primal Salve-Vation because it will become your salvation. It provides relief to countless conditions. Our herbal body oil is excellent for dry skin especially after a bath it glides over large surface areas. Primal Soak & Scrub can be used in two ways: as a scrub to your face, feet or anywhere that needs extra TLC or add a couple tablespoons to your bath for total relaxation. Last but not least we have Velvet Balm’s. They work like lotion bars, simply hold it in your hand and rub over the skin and feel your body melt and become soft like velvet.
Topicals are an incredible way to learn more about the power of plant medicine. If you have any questions about our products or would like to place a custom order please email us at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Over the past year I have worked on patients from all over the globe including visitors from just about every state in the United States, as well as Australia, Guam, Canada, and all over the UK just to name a few. Each patient seemingly shares the same common interests: cannabis and wellness. People that don’t usually receive massage therapy now want to receive it and want to discover the healing properties of cannabis for themselves. The fear factor normally met by patients wanting to experience something new for some reason fades away when cannabis is involved. Patients inquisitive nature takes over their fears and they become more open to the possibility of a pain free and narcotic free life with the use of cannabis infused topical treatments.
For many, their first massage ever is a cannabis infused one and the first question is always the same, “will I get high?” My answer is always the same, “no, that is not the point of this type of bodywork, I started this company with the goal of educating people that it’s not always about getting high.” If the products did cause a psychoactive response, I could not make it through a normal work day, I would be far too intoxicated to perform bodywork. This answer generally leads to their next question, “do I need to worry about failing a drug test?” To date, no one has failed a drug test from the use of topical transmission of cannabis. The infused products are staying in the dermal level and are not entering the bloodstream. This opens cannabis infused massage therapy to patients that can not use any other form of cannabis but still desire its therapeutic health benefits.
Patients of all kinds have contacted me in hopes that they will have some type of relief. I have treated numerous ages and conditions from MS in a 42 year old and Neuropathy in a 90 year old to Cancer in a 4 year old and PTSD in many ages. The benefits for each patient are seen repeatedly with each new diagnosis I get to work with. Each patient notes a deeper sense of relaxation then typically felt after a massage. A reduction of pain, swelling and inflammation is noticed on chronic areas of discomfort as well as cutting healing time in half on numerous types of acute injuries. Increased blood flow to constricted and congested areas of discomfort allow for deeper bodywork to take place without needing to excessively perform deep tissue massage. The products work while I am working preventing hand and wrist pain as well as joint swelling. The benefits are many and the side effects are non-existent unlike most topical pain relief treatments found at your local pharmacy.
I look forward to the coming year and the continued advances of the growing field of cannabis infused massage therapy. Knowledge is power and the more science that comes out to support the theories behind these new techniques the better. Primal Therapeutics hopes you will join our pursuit in continuing to spread the word that we no longer have to live in an over medicated society. We can go back to plant medicine and living holistically, using cannabis infused massage therapy as treatment instead of pharmaceuticals and chemical laden products.
