26 @dayspamagazine • March 2019 from clients who comment on how fresh their skin feels—and they're quick to schedule their next appointment. How do you educate clients who may not know about CBD? Rook: All of our staff went through training with our brand partner, CBD Care Garden, who made it very easy to understand and explain to guests. We let clients know that CBD is an extract sourced from the hemp plant, which contains little to no THC. (Of the more than 100 compounds in the plant, THC is the only one that causes the 'high' effect found in cannabis or marijuana.) We also explain that they will benefi t from the pain-relieving and antioxidant properties found naturally in the products, and that any traces of THC are completely removed. Cressman: I talk with them about the endocannabinoid system (ECS) and how it communicates with the rest of the body, including skin. From there, I describe how phytocannabinoids communicate directly with our own ECS, and explain that CBD is not an intoxicant but rather a healing, balancing ingredient. Parodi: We inform them that active hemp or CBD oil—also known as the 'whole plant extract'— provides benefi ts without altering one's mental state. This active is applied topically, and results in the relief of local pain. What retail items do clients love? Ryan: Biotone Lab+Blends Oral Tincture and CBD Pain Relief Maximum Strength Cream are the most popular with my guests because of their stress- reducing and anti-infl ammatory effects. Cressman: My clients love Color Up Therapeutics Bath Bombs, which give them the chance to quiet the mind and soak in the healing ingredients. They also can't get enough of the hydrating Lip Treatment and Treatment Oil, which restores the skin's balance, especially after spa services. Parodi: Our most popular product is Mary's Nutritionals Elite Transdermal Patch, which can be worn discreetly and provides systemic relief for up to 12 hours. Clients who travel frequently report that it eases their stress. The brand's Bath Bombs are also a favorite of our hotel guests—it's a wonderful reprieve from a busy day in the city. Rook: Defi nitely the CBD Care Garden Melt Body Butter. Not only is it suitable for all skin types, it can be used on the face and body! The plant oil blend restores hydration and encourages moisture retention, leaving skin looking and feeling radiant. u © GETTY IMAGES Lira Clinical Mystiq iLuminating Beauty Oil MALIN+GOETZ Cannabis Hand+Body Wash OY-L Body Butter Ojai Energetics Full Spectrum Sport Gel Nature Pure Labs Luminous Glow CBD Face Oil Mar y's Nutritionals Hemp Infused Massage Oil mar Visit for extra coverage.
