The ultimate guide to learn how to relax with CBD oil


Release discomfort with self-massage

How to relax with CBD oilDay-to-day stress often makes itself known as tension held in the body. Hunched shoulders, soreness and stiffness, and overall muscle discomfort are common physical responses to stress of all kinds. Using our Relief Balm — made with our full-spectrum CBD as well as arnica and menthol, with coconut oil and shea butter for a luxurious feel — try these self-massage techniques to release tension and help achieve a deeply relaxed feeling*:


  • Drop your shoulders down away from your ears. Use two or three fingers to make small circles where your neck and shoulders meet, using as much pressure as feels comfortable. 
  • If typing and texting is leaving you with achy wrists and forearms, use your thumb to apply long, slow pressure along your forearm from elbow to wrist. Then circular motions around the wrist joint itself. Extend one arm, grasp the fingers of that hand with the other, and slowly flex and extend your hand up and down to stretch and release tension in your wrist. Repeat on the other side.
