Thinking of having a CBD massage in New Jersey but unsure of whether it’s worth it. Also, I’m just not sure it’s for me. I have read a lot about CBD. It seems like it might be a bit of hype, but I’ve also read a few studies suggesting that it’s beneficial for people interested in bio-hacking. You know, biohacking? Like trying to change your body and mind? Like, using science? Okay, forget about it. I tried.
Anyway, I have had CBD in smokable form. It does not get you high. (It’s legal! gawd!) But it does make me feel relaxed. I think? It’s boring. Definitely not something people would abuse or use for “fun.” But it’s got qualities that can help a person feel better.
That doesn’t mean I will enjoy a CBD massage. I have no idea of what the effects might be. I am looking for an experience where I can relax and maybe get some pain relief. I’m a strong believer in essential oils, although I really haven’t done too much experimenting. Seriously, it’s been on my mind since I was 12. I suck. I really want to get into the essential oils thing. The next time I get a massage, I’m going to bring my own blend of oil. Organic, cold-pressed oils like sunflower or maybe almond. And, I want to blend in some exotic essential oils to amplify the healing effect.
If you think I’m too New Age, let me remind you that most of that is from Hinduism, a very Old Age way of life. Anyway, I am trepidatious about this all. Like, my sister keeps telling me, “What if you get a severe allergic reaction?” OK, Ashley may just have a point. I can still see her bright green eyes open sooo wide, framed by her short blonde hair. I must have been about 11. She was eight. I ate a strawberry. I snuck it. I knew I was allergic, but I loved the taste. I turned colors, she says to this day. She screamed, “Mommmmmmmmmmmm! Katie’s purple!” In true fact, we ended up in the ER. I was fine, but I get her point.
That’s really what’s held me back from applying essential oils topically. Or, ingesting them. If you read labels, you’ll see the processed foods we know and love use essential oils. My dream massage would be at home, with two therapists, and the oil would be some alchemical admixture I developed and let sit in moonlight for a month. I really am serious; you don’t know me! I am really going to do this. I just have to overcome the fear of allergies.
Maybe I should have my epi-pen handy, just in case? I mean, I know the allergens that cause me issues. But essential oils are just not what I’m allergic to. It’s corn, strawberries, dairy, soy, and that’s it. I don’t even get hay-fever. I feel like essential oils represent another plane of healing, distinct from vitamins, herbs, yoga, and everything else. God put all these plants here. The cosmic synchronicity assures us that the plants on the Earth may well do us good.
I know some plants are poisonous, but even many of those are beneficial and are medicinal in very small quantities. For my first experience, I’d definitely prefer a CBD massage in my own home. I think that it’s probably the best place to be, considering I may just bug out. I don’t want to embarrass myself, to be perfectly honest. I know CBD has many benefits but for me, it’s just another avenue of growth I’ve only checked out briefly. (There are a lot of things like that in my life.)
When seeking out a massage therapist for this, I am going to ask for a woman who is a shaman, perhaps someone in touch with the moon cycles. I know that sounds far-fetched. If you think an eight year old is writing this blog, I guess you’ve noticed that I’m just a kid at heart. What can I say? I am a raw and real person. That’s about it.
CBD Massages are definitely a thing. And, I know it’s going to add an extra fee to the bill. SO, we’ll see. Chances are, I probably won’t actually try this until 2035. I was always late getting into things, as a kid.
