The first of its kind in New Haven.
Elm City Wellness is adding CBD Massage to our menu of services, as the benefits of CBD (cannabidiol) align with our mission to bring high-quality, thoroughly researched information, services and products to our community to help them relax and heal. Amongst many other findings, conclusive studies show that Cannabis can relieve pain and reduce inflammation when it’s applied to the skin.
No, you won’t get high, but your body — and your mind — will thank you for the gentle melty feeling that can last hours after the massage. Cannabinoid (CBD) is absorbed through the skin and into tissue to support body systems without the psychoactive (THC) component.
CBD Infused services are provided using 100% Hemp Cannabis for maximum CBD benefits. There is no THC in any of our topical creams or oils.
The CBD massage creams we use are beneficial for clients experiencing:
CBD & MUSCLE PAIN
CBD massage reduces inflammation in tissue and allows the therapist to access and release muscles on a deeper level. Since it doesn't penetrate the bloodstream, topical cannabis has no psychogenic effects (meaning you won't get stoned), but it relaxes muscles, allowing the therapist to go deeper without causing pain.
CBD & SKIN IRRITATIONS
Cannabinoids promote healthy cell regeneration in the skin, and the anti-inflammatory soothing properties of CBD-infused products can provide relief if you are experiencing:
skin irritation from skin conditions, burns, radiation therapy
scar tissue (surgical or injury)
psoriasis, eczema or dermatitis
CBD & ANXIETY and depression
CBD-infused products engage receptors in the brain to naturally calm and relax the body. CBD massage may help alleviate symptoms of depression, anxiety and stress by calming the nervous system and bringing the body to a state of complete relaxation.

How does CBD work?
Dr. Jean Talleyrand, M.D. founder of MediCann explains how CBD provides relief from pain and inflammation.
In an interview with MASSAGE Magazine, Talleyrand explained that both THC and CBD stop pain through the endocannabinoid system.
“This system consists of at least two receptors, termed CB1 and CB2 … the receptors are in every organ, including the skin, and typically found on nerve cells and immune cells in these organs,” he said.
The [endocannabinoid] system modulates inflammation and pain, said Talleyrand—and because inflammation may also cause pain, the system affects pain in two ways.
First, THC directly binds to both CB1 and CB2 receptors, and so directly influences pain, while CBD binds to a TRPV1 receptor. That TRPV1 receptor has, in turn, a positive influence on the CB1 and CB2 receptors, which is how CBD indirectly mitigates pain, Talleyrand said.
Additionally, he said, “TRPV1 is directly related to pain transmission, and thus CBD may influence pain in this direct fashion as well—and that is why CBD is considered the more anti-pain compound of the two cannabinoids.”
