Find Your Bliss at These CBD-Friendly Spas

Sandra MacGregor

Many spas around North America are taking the art of relaxation to a whole new level with the addition of cannabis to their range of offerings. From massages, to facials, to aromatic oils and creams, wellness centers are embracing the healing powers of hemp. Best of all, these treatments use only cannabidiol (AKA CBD), the non-psychoactive cannabinoid extract from the hemp plant, so you don’t have to worry about getting high — or a case of the munchies — to indulge. Here are spas presently offering an alternative way to unwind.

Ste. Anne Spa

1. Ste. Anne Spa, Ontario, Canada: One of the few spas featuring cannabis treatments in Canada also happens to be one of the country’s most acclaimed properties. The new cannabis-infused Canna Massage offers guests herbal rejuvenation using essential oils infused with CBD, which has pain-relieving and anti-inflammatory qualities. As part of the massage, guests receive a full-size bottle of Ste. Anne’s Rest Aromatherapy Oil, to ensure they can recapture that oh-so-relaxed feeling at home. The spa also has a new line of CBD-infused, organic balms, lotions, and oils that likewise deliver soothing, stress-relieving benefits. After your treatment, if you’re still feeling in need of a little extra de-stressing, Ste. Anne’s has its own stables where guests can enjoy a relaxing horse ride. (Photo via Ste. Anne’s Spa)

The Kahala Hotel & Resort

2. The Kahala Hotel & Resort, Honolulu, HI: Sure, it’s hard to believe that one could ever need help to chill out while in Hawaii, but all that beach-hopping can be so taxing, no? Up your unwinding ability with Kahala Hotel’s new Hemp Recovery Remedy. This 90-minute long, incredibly restorative experience features hemp-infused products from MARY’S nutritionals. This signature treatment is designed to restore vigor to muscles and joints, and also incorporates stretching, as well as pressure points, and body massage. Don’t miss the Kahala’s natural ocean-water lagoon with the hotel’s own resident dolphins. (Photo via The Kahala Hotel & Resort)

3. Solage Calistoga, Calistoga, CA: Move over merlot, CBD is the new talk of the town. Right in the heart of Napa Valley — North America’s premier wine region — is where you’ll find this five-star spa. The Spa at Solage is already well-known for its signature Mudslide treatment and now it’s added CBD to the mix. Guests can request that a rejuvenating 30-minute arm and face mask with Healthy Lotus CBD oil be added to any spa service. Or really indulge and add CBD oil to the Mellow Me Out package, which includes a complete body exfoliation, shea butter massage, foot rejuvenation, and a scalp and hair renewal.

Throw in some warm compresses and Yoga Balm (with seven different healing oils) and your mood and energy levels are sure to be elevated. (Photo via Griffin Gate Marriott Resort & Spa )

Terranea Resort

5. Terranea Resort, Rancho Palos Verdes, CA: The award-winning spa at Terranea just introduced a CBD Massage to its repertoire of unique healing treatments. Thanks to the use of cannabidiol, the massage is said to alleviate anxiety, and decrease pain and inflammation, while super-charging the immune system and promoting restorative sleep. What makes the Spa at Terranea especially unique is its fusion of wellness and circadian rhythms. Guests’ treatments are  aligned with nature’s natural circadian rhythms and are adjusted depending on what hour of day you visit. Perhaps the most calming element of the 50,000 square foot indoor/outdoor spa is its incredible ocean views that you can take full advantage of from one of the facility’s private hot tubs.
