Cannabis-derived CBD spa treatments are springing up across Europe.
From Scotland to Switzerland, hotels are jumping on the trend to bring an added level of relaxation to your stay.
No, a CBD massage will not get you high. But advocates say it will restore blissful balance to your body.
Ready to experience a new world of restorative wellness? Here are five of the best CBD spas to try in Europe.

Choose from the ‘Body Calm’ massage (€130) for full CBD bliss, or opt for a CBD ‘Gold Age Restore’ facial (€160) to combat signs of ageing and soothe tired, irritated skin.
Each CBD treatment is carefully choreographed by spa manager Maria D’Orey using full spectrum CBD products by Ila, handmade in the Cotswolds, England.
