Rudding Park has become one of the first spas in the UK to introduce a range of CBD spa treatments using cannabidiol products. Cannabidiol (CBD) is a naturally occurring constituent found in the cannabis plant that does not cause psychoactive effects (hence it’s legal) but is thought to be good for a wide range of conditions.
The hotel and spa has collaborated with MariPharm, a supplier of high quality CBD products, to create a range of experiences which could assist with pain relief, promote anti-aging, reduce anxiety and depression and support overall positive mental health.
Rudding Park Spa guests have the option to add a CBD Experience to a number of existing spa treatments at £15 per person. For every CBD Experience booking, £2 will be donated to the Sir Robert Ogden Macmillan Centre, which provides cancer treatment to patients in the area.
The CBD Experience begins with the hands being wrapped in a hot towel infused with CBD oil. Guests are given the option of a spray of CBD oil under the tongue and will experience a gentle foot cleanse using CBD oil. The therapists will then apply CBD oil to any ‘problem areas’ to soothe and aid healing. The experience is completed with a relaxing CBD tea and a CBD chocolate.
Any guests booking a spa treatment in the couples’ room can enhance their wellness experience with a 25 minute CBD Bath Ritual. A copper bath is filled with warm water and soothing CBD oil and guests can relax as they breathe in the scent of lavender oil infused with CBD water. Following the Bath Ritual, a fresh bathrobe infused with essential oils and a cup of freshly made CBD tea with a CBT chocolate awaits.
“As a natural ingredient, research has shown CBD can help with an array of ailments which makes it hugely appealing to those who care about what they eat, drink or apply to their skin. As a new trend taking the wellness and beauty world by storm, it’s important for us to embrace CBD so we can offer guests what they are looking from a spa experience.”Sarah Johnson, Rudding Park Spa Manager
CBD is one of at least 85 cannabinoid compounds found in cannabis and is popular for its medicinal benefits. CBD is legal in the UK as long as it does not contain more than 0.2% of THC, the component that gives cannabis its psychoactive effects.
Research has found CBD has numerous benefits. These include the antioxidants within CBD helping to neutralise free radicals and treat signs of aging; its anti-inflammatory properties are believed to calm inflamed acne; and the fatty acids are thought to soothe itching and inflammation from eczema and psoriasis by combating the excessive water loss of the conditions.
