Frequently Asked Questions
CBD, or Cannabidiol, is one of 113 known cannabinoids in the cannabis plant. CBD is reported to have many beneficial properties and is used to promote wellness.
Cannabinoids are chemical compounds produced by the cannabis plant. The human body (and the bodies of all vertebrates) produce endocannabinoids, while cannabinoids found in plants are called phytocannabinoids. Cannabinoids interact with the body’s endocannabinoid system (ECS) to promote homeostasis or keep the body in balance.
The human endocannabinoid system, or ECS, is a system of neurotransmitters and cell membrane receptors. Neurotransmitters such as endocannabinoids are produced by the central nervous system and interact with the cannabinoid receptors on cell membranes to adjust (or bring into balance) physiological processes at a cellular level.
In the world of CBD products, the synergistic relationship between CBD and the other naturally occurring compounds is called the “Entourage Effect”. Every cannabinoid and terpene present in full-spectrum or broad-spectrum CBD works synergistically to enhance all other components so CBD users can experience optimal health benefits. Simply put – CBD works better when it has all components of the plant (including some THC).
CBD makes for the perfect complement to massage therapy. By implementing CBD massage oils and topicals during your session, you can benefit both from the relaxing and therapeutic effects of the massage, as well as CBD.
The main difference is that full spectrum extracts may contain trace amounts of THC (under 0.3%), while broad spectrum extracts have the THC completely removed. Aside from this difference, broad spectrum hemp and full spectrum hemp are very similar. Both extracts feature hemp’s wide array of cannabinoids, so they are equally capable of the entourage effect.
The choice really is a matter of your personal preferences and what feels right to you. Both oils are equally beneficial, and it is debatable whether the presence of THC in full-spectrum oils makes much of a difference in terms of overall effectiveness. If you want to maximize the benefits of your CBD massage, full-spectrum CBD is going to give you the absolute full range of benefits the cannabis plant has to offer. The only downside to this is that since there is THC present there is a greater than zero chance that you could produce a false positive on a drug test. If this worries you, or if using products containing THC in general worry you, then the broad-spectrum oil is your best option and will still give you nearly all the same benefits.
CBD should not make you high. Unlike THC, the cannabinoid that produces a “high”, CBD is non-psychotropic. It is true that there are trace amounts of THC in full-spectrum CBD products, but even these products are unlikely to make you feel high.
Both our full-spectrum and broad-spectrum formulations contain a generous dosing of 500 mg of CBD per ounce. Approximately 1-1.5 ounces of oil is typically used per massage.
Generally, CBD topical effects can be felt within 15–20 minutes and can last for up to 6 hours.
As with most therapies, CBD use may entail some risks. CBD may interact with supplements and some prescription drugs. Please consult with your doctor before scheduling your CBD massage to discuss any safety concerns you may have.
Under the state of South Carolina’s medical cannabis law, minors can be prescribed medical CBD if their doctor gains written consent from the child’s parent or guardian. Otherwise, CBD is reserved in the medical sense only for those patients above the age of eighteen.

Absolutely! We have paper copies available upon request.
We use industry standard draping techniques, keeping you covered and comfortable for the entire session. No areas are exposed without consent and you can always let your therapist know if you are uncomfortable with a particular technique.
We encourage each person to undress to their level of comfort. For most clients that means being completely undressed, while many prefer to keep undergarments on. This is completely up to you. We provide the privacy of the massage room for you to undress to your level of comfort.
For those who use massage as stress relief from the work week and to manage regular tension, once per month is the most common frequency. For those recovering from chronic tightness or those in a particularly stressful situation, weekly massage or twice per month is common.
A license means that a massage therapist has met the requirements and paid the fee to legally practice massage in your city, county and/or state. To obtain a license, a massage therapist will usually have to complete a minimum number of training hours at an accredited or accepted school or training center.
