Discover the Unique Power of CBD Beauty Treatments
Did you know that Wilmington is home to the first hemp spa in North Carolina?
Taylor Jameson, your local licensed cannabis esthetician — specializing in beautification of the skin — has been offering CBD skin treatments since 2017. In January she re-branded her business, Wilmington Hemp Spa Powered by Treatments by Taylor, to more specifically identify her unique niche.
She offers popular services found at other spas — lash lifts and tints, facials, advanced skin treatments like chemical peels, microdermabrasion and nano infusions, spray tans, and expert brow shaping — with a key difference: Wilmington Hemp Spa leverages the unique power of products made with CBD.
Also known as cannabidiol, CBD is a non-psychotropic compound found in the cannabis plant with different properties of THC found in marijuana. CBD does not get you high, but it does produce incredible therapeutic effects in wellness and beauty treatments by attaching itself to certain receptors in the body.
“People may not realize that our body has an endocannabinoid system that naturally interacts with CBDs,” Taylor explained.
“CBD functions as an antiinflammatory and anti bacterial to help reduce acne. It also has super antioxidant properties, which protects our skin from free radicals that cause premature aging, fine lines and wrinkles. It can even help with more severe skin conditions like eczema, psoriasis and dermatitis because of its healing properties and ability to balance oil production.”
The genesis of Wilmington Hemp Spa was a serious car accident Taylor experienced three years ago. CBD products helped her walk again as she used them to get off pain medication and incorporated them into her physical therapy appointments.
Taylor is the first to exclusively use CBD skin and body products like moisturizers, serums, exfoliants, cleansers, masks, and massage oil, among others in her spa treatments.
Individuals discovering the benefits of Wilmington Hemp Spa treatments range from younger men and women 18 years and up interested in preserving and maintaining their skin, to 45-50 year olds using CBD products to deal with some of the effects of menopause and aging.
Taylor uses the first-ever, complete professional CBD skincare line, Color Up Therapeutics, out of Denver, Colorado and offers those same skincare products to customers who want to continue improving their skin at home.
“I’m not just selling CBD products, services, or offering the best hemp spa experience. I’m creating a world, a space of freedom for others to be able to enjoy incorporating beauty and cannabis. As an entrepreneur and business owner, my job is to make this world I’m creating so amazing that everyone wants to be a part of it. A lot of people are letting go of the stigma attached to cannabis and are realizing its medicinal and healing value.”
