Glen Ivy Hot Springs' New CBD Enhancement Promotes Ultimate Relaxation
Recently, The Spa Insider attended a special day centered around Cannabidiol (CBD) wellness, hosted by Organic Spa Magazine and Glen Ivy Hot Springs in Corona, California. The day began with fresh-squeezed juices served in the spa’s beautiful Secret Garden, followed by an educational session with Vanessa Marquez, the CEO/Founder of CBD Care Garden, a hemp-based wellness and beauty skincare line.
In addition to sharing some of the major benefits of CBD-focused skin care, which include pain relief, decreased inflammation, antioxidant benefits and increased relaxation, Marquez also took the time to clear up common myths and misconceptions related to CBD skin care. A few key points:
CBD is a component of the cannabis plant, but not the same as THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), which is known for its psychoactive properties
CBD is non-psychoactive, so you won’t get high from it
CBD is 100-percent legal
The human body has an Endocannabinoid System (ECS), which is responsible for many things including immune support, mood elevation and restorative sleep
The body depends on the ECS System to aid in general cell function and transport communication between organ systems
In October, Glen Ivy Hot Springs unveiled an innovative new service enhancement to its menu with the addition of CBD Care Garden products, which are non-psychoactive and infused with organic PhytoActiv rich hemp oil, incorporating the same cannabinoid molecules that are made within the human body that are also found within the hemp plant, playing a significant role in optimizing body and cell function.
Glen Ivy Hot Springs is among the first spas in Southern California to offer CBD Care Garden, and spa guests can choose between the brand’s luxurious CBD oil or lotion as a $25 add-on while enjoying the signature Aromasoul Elements Massage.
After a farm-to-table wellness lunch courtesy of Glen Ivy Hot Springs’ Ivy Kitchen, it was time to enjoy the facilities and spa. I lounged around and enjoyed access to the property’s 19 different therapeutic pools, healing mineral water baths and Club Mud, then I headed to the Massage Villas for the Signature Aromasoul Elements Massage with CBD Care Garden Massage Cream as my add-on of choice.
I emerged from the 50-minute treatment feeling ultra-relaxed and blissful. My therapist made sure to focus on the areas where I experience the most discomfort: in my case, it’s my right hand and forearm (from working as a writer), my shoulder blades (from sitting at a desk), and my legs and feet (from all the walking that I do). I truly think the CBD oil paired with my massage therapist’s techniques made a huge difference in how great I felt afterwards!
For those interested in taking the CBD experience home with them, Glen Ivy Hot Springs’ gift shop sells various products from the brand, including their Melt Body Butter, MintBerry Lip Balm, and Lip Gloss that comes with a built-in LED light and mirror.
