With the growing popularity of hemp oil throughout the United States, clients of massage therapists are beginning to ask about the possibility of integrating a natural dietary supplement and topical salve into their session. Many massage therapists have discovered that hemp oil is a natural complement to their practice and are finding the benefits greatly enhance the therapeutic qualities of a massage.
What is Hemp Oil?
There are a full spectrum of cannabinoids naturally found in the hemp plant that support the endocannabinoid system in humans and other vertebrate animals. The endocannabinoid system, which was recently discovered by scientists within the last 20 years, helps regulate the endocrine system. This is the body system that produces the hormones that are involved in many body functions, from sleep to pain management to mood. Hemp plants, by definition, contain no more than 0.3 percent of THC, which is another cannabinoid. THC is responsible for the psychotropic “high” associated with marijuana; hemp oil does not produce a “high,” so it is safe for everyone, including children, elderly and pets.
Salve Offers Topical Enhancement
There are many different kinds of delivery methods available for high quality hemp oil. Many users prefer using a tincture, with a serving size equal to a single depression of the dropper bulb (which fills the dropper approximately halfway), while others prefer taking a capsule. Servings are usually taken once in the morning and once in the evening, although individual results vary so it is encouraged to start small and monitor effects. The salve, however, is an ideal enhancement for massage. Simply rub the salve topically on to muscles to provide additional care directly where it is needed most.
Most Concentrated Salve on the Market
Functional Remedies is proud to offer the most concentrated salve on the market today. Our lab technicians start with the same oil that is used in the 50 mg capsules. Then, they add organic coconut and grapeseed oils, organic beeswax, orange and spearmint food-grade essential oils, vitamin E and even a small amount of black pepper that is infused and then filtered out. We test the batches for consistency and potency before pouring the product into tubes. The concentration is close to 18 grams per bottle.
Hemp Oil Can Increase Retail Sales
Once clients experience the quick benefits of adding hemp oil to a massage, it is likely they will like to learn more about the product and purchase tincture, capsules or salve for private, in-home use. This is another opportunity for massage therapists to enhance their business by offering these products for sale. The high-quality hemp oil produced in Colorado by Functional Remedies has a shelf life of at least 24 months – two years! – as determined by independent laboratory scientific testing, so there is no concern that products will expire before it sells. Providing information and this natural dietary herbal supplement to clients provides therapists the ability to help clients deal with their health issues during the treatment and in between sessions, too.
