The Benefits of CBD Pedicures

Raise your hand if you just need to decompress and relax. Raise your hand if you are constantly in pain from standing on your feet all day. Raise your hand if you are looking for a lavish upgrade to your normal pedicure. Everyone can lower their hands and book a pedi at your local spa. Ladies and gentlemen should all experience some type of CBD skincare service. The list of benefits spans wider than just pain and stress relief, and is quickly gaining recognition. Let’s go ahead and pique your interest into the benefits of CBD pedicures!

The Beauty of CBD

First, let’s recap what exactly is CBD. CBD, short for Cannabidiol, is a non-psychoactive compound found in the hemp plant. Unlike THC, another compound found in the same plant, CBD does not have the “high” effect. So, don’t worry! 

CBD has been the subject of numerous scientific studies due to its potential health benefits. The findings of these studies have led to the growing popularity of CBD in various health and wellness products. However, it wasn't until recently that beauty treatments began to incorporate this compound.

The beauty industry is always eager to experiment with new ingredients that offer potential benefits. As a result, CBD has been incorporated into a variety of beauty supplies, including skin serums, lip balms, and even nail varnishes.

The Health Benefits of CBD

Not only does CBD do wonders for your nails, but it also gives you a relaxing massage during your manicure or pedicure. This massage helps improve blood flow and circulation, making you feel oh-so-good. When you use or apply CBD, your body gets the added bonus of cannabinoids that help reduce pain and inflammation. These little superheroes work with our body's own receptors to bring relief. So, if you're dealing with arthritis, nerve pain, achy knees, plantar fasciitis, or even sore calves from hitting the gym, a CBD pedicure needs to be booked asap!

CBD Pedicure Benefits 

The addition of CBD to your usual pedicure routine can have some surprising benefits.

Stress Relief

CBD helps you relax during your nail services. It does this by stopping enzymes that break down anandamide, which is a mood booster. CBD also enhances the calming effects of the GABA-A receptor and triggers the 5-HTIA serotonin receptor, which acts as an anti-depressant.

Skin Rejuvenation

One example is that CBD has been found to have antioxidant effects, as it helps shield the outer layer of skin cells from damage caused by oxidative stress from exposure to UV light.


Walking or standing for long periods can lead to calluses and cracks on our feet. This happens when the top layer of skin becomes dry and flaky, which causes it to harden and thicken, resulting in painful cracks. These cracks can also cause inflammation and discomfort. 

Sometimes, ingrown toenails or poorly trimmed nails can also cause foot inflammation and pain. Ingrown toenails can be extremely painful and even lead to infections, so it's important to get them checked out right away. Cold weather can also cause foot inflammation, which is not good for nail health.

CBD Oils

The chemical makeup of CBD is fueled with fatty acids which do a lot of the hard work. The health advantages of Omega 3 fatty acids are well-known and include benefits for hair, skin, nails, cardiovascular health, and brain function. CBD oil contains these beneficial acids and also contains antioxidants. In fact, research has found that the antioxidants in CBD oil are more potent than those found in vitamin C and vitamin E.

Drawbacks of CBD Pedicures

When there is something this good, there is always an expected ‘bad’ counterpart. Research, clinical studies, surveys, and polls seem to all point to positive results. But, with some heavy digging, there was one noticeable factor that makes sense. Products infused with CBD only penetrate the top layers of your skin, but is still considered ‘skin-permeable’. 

The situation becomes complex when it comes to CBD pedicures. People often enter with the belief that CBD can alleviate anxiety and pain, leading them to assume that the infused products will leave them feeling as calm and energetic as those in commercials. CBD skin care products often contain a low amount of CBD, with some creams having only a few milligrams of the ingredient in a 4 oz. jar. As there are no recommended dosage guidelines for CBD, this amount is unlikely to have a significant impact.
