Spa Day: CBD Takes Wellness to New Highs

CBD—also known as cannabidiol, the non-psychoactive ingredient in cannabis—is everywhere lately. From mints to lip gloss and lotion, it’s made its way into every facet of the wellness regimen.

Research shows that CBD helps ease anxiety, reduces inflammation, and might be an effective treatment for acne, among dozens of other promised benefits. No wonder it’s become the latest much-hyped miracle cure.

As CBD has taken the beauty and wellness industries by storm, it’s no surprise that it’s also made a grand entrance into spa culture. Indeed, lux spas throughout the country are rolling out CBD treatments from facials to massages and manicures. In fact, according to the International Spa Association, one-third of spas at resort hotels are now including CBD treatments – sure making it seem like CBD is no passing fad.

Read on for some of the most luxurious, muscle-melting CBD treatments at spas around the country.
