CBD Oil- Why we are not offering it.

Updated: Dec 17, 2019

I am sitting here with a ton of CBD lotions samples sent to me by a company who is really trying to get me to offer CBD Massage to my clients! I actually can't touch the stuff because 1. It has 14% menthol and I am allergic to menthol, and 2. in NYS using a CBD lotion or oil on my clients is out of my scope of practice!

CBD or Marijuana products have been a pretty popular topic of discussion as of late. It only makes sense that many of you have lots of questions. I get asked about what it is, how it can help, and of course why I am not offering while other LMT's locally are.

What is CBD?

According to Harvard Health Publishing (the article is linked here if you would like to ready it.) CBD stands for cannabidiol. Cannabidiol is an active ingredient in the hemp plant. Plants have many active components. Take for example the volatile oil that is used to make our favorite essential oil. The big difference with CBD is that it is not the same as THC.
