This is because massage has proven to stimulate blood flow, improve lymphatic drainage, relax and reduce muscle tension and also impact on our nervous system.

Different essential oils have shown to have different health benefits for the body and mind, but Cannabis Essential Oil is the sort after essential oil being added to many Spa massage treatments now.
Hemp/Cannabis Essential Oil Massage is being requested more and more by clients from their Spa and Massage clinics due to the improved benefits that are being experienced by the clients after having these health treatments.
Cannabis/Hemp Essential oil is extracted from the plant using steam distillation, and may have trace amounts of CBD and THC, but “The THC component is non-volatile, therefore does not come over in the distillation process into the essential oil.”**
Cannabis Essential Oil primarily consists of terpenes. Beta-Carophylene is one of those terpenes found in cannabis, and is classed as a sesquiterpene. Beta-Caryophyllene can apparently interact with cannabinoid receptors, and therefore is classified as a cannabinoids according to 38 research papers that Robert Tisserand has reviewed on PubMed. ***
Beta-Caryophyllene is found in many other botanicals such as Clove, Black Pepper, Ylang Ylang, Lemon Balm etc., and is an anti-inflammatory.
Major constituents commonly found in Hemp/Cannabis Essential oil are:

People often confuse hemp essential oil with regular hemp oil. Although both oils come from the same plant, they are in fact very different. Please Note: Essentials oils are not for consumption. Hemp seed oil comes from the seed, whereas essential oil comes from the upper leaves and flowers of the hemp plant.
