Should you introduce CBD into your beauty salon?
There is a lot of hype around CBD as a wellness product at the moment but many of us are still in the dark about its true value and place in beauty salons.
As Shop Beautiful launches the Nutra7 range of CBD products, Samantha Woodcroft, co-founder of Nutra7, tells us more about CBD and why salons should be adding it to their mix.
What is CBD?
“Cannabidiol (CBD) is a compound of the cannabis plant that has significant health benefits. Unlike cannabis, CBD does not contain THC which is the cannabinoid that produces psychoactive effects. Because of this distinction, CBD is a legal supplement that people can take,” explains Woodcroft.
What can CBD be used for?
“It's a naturally occurring substance that's used in products like oils and edibles to impart a feeling of relaxation and calm.
“There are a wide range of conditions for which people are using CBD as treatment. The most popular reasons are anxiety, insomnia, joint pain and inflammation and depression,” adds Woodcroft.
Is there a demand for it?
“There’s no question that CBD is now big business. Recent research by the Global Wellness Institute estimates mental wellness is now worth £91.8bn globally – which covers senses, sleep and space, nutraceuticals and botanicals, self-improvement and mindfulness.
“The explosion in popularity of CBD comes from media coverage and positive anecdotal experiences from people trying it for themselves and then recommending it to friends,” says Woodcroft.
When looking at the CBD ranges in the market, Lucy Barnard from the Shop Beautiful team said the decision to launch with Nutra7 was all down to results and support.
Is CBD effective?
Nutra7, the brand we recommend, suggests that 80% of CBD users say that they found CBD products to be “very or extremely effective”, while 42% said they have stopped using traditional pain relievers or prescription pain drugs and switched to using CBD and or CBD dominant products instead.
Where can I learn more about CBD?
Start with a product range that will offer a good level of training and support. We work with Nutra7, because they are a UK leading UK supplier, with over 60 years in the industry and are happy to work with salons and support them. Alongside this, at Shop Beautiful we are about to introduce our first free webinar as part of a support package for our customers interested in introducing CBD.
