in Harrogate is one of the first spas in the UK to introduce a range of treatments using Cannabidiol products. Cannabidiol (CBD) is a naturally occurring constituent found in the cannabis plant. 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-ageing, 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 in Harrogate.
The CBD Experience begins with the hands being wrapped in a hot towel infused with CBD oil. Guests are then 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 Time For Two
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 waters 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 CBD chocolate awaits.
Sarah Johnson, Rudding Park Spa Manager explains: “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.”
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 crucial component that gives cannabis its psychotic effects.
Research has found CBD has numerous benefits. These include the antioxidants within CBD helping to neutralise free radicals and treat signs of ageing; scientists believe its anti-inflammatory properties could calm inflamed acne; and the fatty acids within CBD could soothe itching and inflammation from eczema and psoriasis by combating the excessive water loss of the conditions.
Other reported benefits of CBD include:
• promoting relaxation
• pain relief
• promoting heart health
• reducing anxiety and depression
• supporting overall positive mental health
• improving cognitive function and memory
