Vaping CBD oil is the quickest way to relieve anxiety and pain. To relieve inflammation, topical application or a CBD massage is recommended. It is possible to combine topical CBD application with CBD aromatherapy or vaping.
What are the benefits? How do you do it? And are there any risks or warnings you should be aware of?
Below is everything you need to know about vaping CBD oil and CBD massages.
Is CBD oil good for a massage?
CBD or cannabidiol is a medicinal extract of hemp that has uses in the treatment and prevention of pain, inflammation, and over fifty illnesses and conditions.
Should you vape or massage CBD oil?
Medical and anecdotal evidence suggests that you should try both. However, vaping CBD and other substances create some risks you should be aware of.
What is vital to remember is that the human lung is not designed to hold water. Vaping introduces water and may also deliver harmful substances, including pesticides, irritants, and allergens to the lung, increasing the risk of infection, inflammation, or lung damage.
Because of that, we recommend:
- Use quality CBD oil and vapes.
- If you have cardiovascular or pulmonary health issues, avoid vaping.
Vaping CBD is beneficial in that it offers high bioavailability, and you experience the side effects faster.
Can you use vapes for CBD oil aromatherapy massage?
Vaporizers and aromatherapy diffusers somewhat serve the same function. Combining CBD aromatherapy with CBD massages is useful in that it can relieve symptoms including pain, nausea, depression, insomnia, stress, depression, and anxiety.
You also enjoy the benefit of human contact, which can help relieve symptoms triggered by loneliness.
What is the purpose of a CBD oil massage?
Massages not only complement treatment for multiple issues, but they can also improve health. The benefits you stand to achieve through regular massages include (1) improved immunity. (2) better circulation. (3) energy and alertness. (4) pain and inflammation relief. (5) reduced stress, depression, and anxiety.
Why couple CBD massage with vaping or aromatherapy?
The combined benefit of a CBD massage and inhalation is -it encourages deeper relaxation, improved sleep, and reduced muscle soreness, and the combination may be of benefit in the treatment or management of:
- Migraines and headaches.

- Different types of pain, including joint and muscle pain.
- Nerve pain.
What does the research say?
According to a study published in the National Library of Medicine, when applied directly to the skin, CBD can reduce “inflammation and pain related behavior in rat model of arthritis.”
CBD’s effect on pain and inflammation is well documented in multiple studies, and anecdotal evidence overwhelmingly supports the claim. The linked study’s findings suggest that:
- Topical application of CBD significantly reduces joint swelling, and improves limb posture.
- CBD’s effects on the immune system may be dose-dependent.
The study concluded, quote:
“These data indicate that topical CBD application has therapeutic potential for relief of arthritis pain-related behaviors and inflammation without evident side-effects.”
In short, if you have joint, muscle, or any other type of pain, you should consider getting a CBD massage.
One need not see a message therapist if you have the right tools and knowledge. That raises the question:
How do you massage CBD oil at home?
Simplified. A massage is the manipulation of the skin, muscles, tendons, and ligaments using gentle or deep pressure or stroking. There are at least four types of CBD massages one can give or receive at home. It could be a gentle massage, deep massage, trigger point massage or sports massage.
However, it is important to remember that if you do not practice the right method you may end up doing more harm than good. Also, home massages may be inappropriate for persons living with the following conditions.
- Fractures or broken bones.
- Severe infections.
- Bleeding disorders or if you are on blood thinners.
- Severely low platelet count.
- Deep vail thrombosis.
We recommend consulting with a physician before getting a massage if you have the conditions above. Additionally, vaping CBD lowers blood pressure, meaning you should avoid vaping if you have low blood pressure.
How to give a CBD massage at home.
Step 1: pick CBD massage oil that suits your skin.
There is no harm in using ingestible CBD oil for massages, but it can get expensive. Because of that, one may mix an equal or the appropriate amount of CBD oil with a massage oil of choice.
You may also invest in CBD massage oils.
Choosing CBD massage oil tips:
- Use non-oily CBD creams if you have oily skin. CBD can reduce sebum production, but if the carrier oil is thick, it can cause pore clogging.
- If you have normal or dry skin, you may use oily CBD products.
Step 2: do it yourself or get someone else to do it.
By yourself, there are areas of your body that you will not be able to massage, including your back and shoulders.
Techniques you should learn -include tapping, rubbing strokes, kneading, circular stroking movements, and shaking movements.
If you are inexperienced, we recommend avoiding damaged or injured areas, as you may do more harm than good. It is also vital to ‘listen’ and react to the receiving person. If there is discomfort or pain, make necessary adjustments.
There are hundreds of massage videos on YouTube that you may use to learn how to give a proper massage.
Step 3: have fun.
CBD massages coupled with vaping or aromatherapy offer numerous benefits for the mind and body, and massages can improve intimacy or bring you closer to your partner.
So, try to make it fun or use it as a distraction from what ails you, stresses, and so on.
What are the benefits of CBD massages?
Apart from stress, anxiety, and depression relief, CBD massages also promise:
- Younger-looking skin. CBD is a moisturizer and anti-inflammatory, and it can keep your skin infection free. Additionally, there is evidence that CBD can reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. You may also massage CBD oil into stretch marks to reduce the appearance.
- Tension relief. The weather, posture, or job can cause your muscles to tense up. CBD relaxes the muscles, improves sleep quality, and makes you feel good.
- CBD is a mood regulator. By encouraging positive thought, CBD can improve your mood when inhaled or massaged.
- CBD massages relieve chronic pain and reduce the need for painkillers.
