I Tried a Cannabis Massage and This Is What Happened

I know what youâ€™re thinking: Did it get you high?
Thatâ€™s all anyone asked me after I got a massage with cannabis cream in Denver, where marijuana is legal.
While I consider myself a connoisseur of spas and weed (only where itâ€™s legal, of course), I still wasnâ€™t entirely sure what to expect from theÂ LoDo Massage Studio. I booked the studioâ€™s signature Mile High Massage using Apothecannaâ€™s Pain Cream, a massage lotion laced with cannabis (plus arnica, peppermint, and juniperâ€”but who cares, right?).
Topical cannabinoids are, according to doctors, antioxidants and anti-inflammatories with, according to The Dude Lebowski, pain-killing properties. Iâ€™m going to be honest hereâ€”Iâ€™m suspicious of the never-ending health claims that position cannabis as a panacea: You can cook with it; it will cure a headache or help you sleep like a baby. It seems too good to be true.
But my massage was ridiculously good. Iâ€™m one of those â€œHarder! No, harder!â€ massage people. (Does this make me a masochist?) This one was intense even by my yardstick, but still I floated through it in a blissed-out blur. After the massage ended, I felt loosey-goosey relaxed and ready for a nap. Or an order of fries. Maybe someone could throw fries in my mouth while I napped? If I didn't always want fries and a nap, I'd think there might be something to this topical cannabis business.
