Europe celebrates the launch of first ever cannabis wellness spa in Switzerland

The Schlosshotel Zermatt in Switzerland will be remembered in history as the first weed-focused wellness spa in Europe. 

Located on the outskirts of Matterhorn in Switzerland, the cannabis-inspired relaxation clinic prides itself on blending relaxation and CBD with a luxurious touch.

Stretching across 630 square meters, the CBD Spa features Zermatt’s one and only hemp sauna, as well as the acclaimed Swiss CBD branded products in all of the spa’s treatments and massages.

Best of all, guests can admire Zermatt’s snow-encrusted peaks through the panoramic windows a true alpinist’s dream.

About Switzerland’s CBD wellness spa at the Schlosshotel Zermatt

Switzerland’s CBD wellness spa at the Schlosshotel Zermatt has teamed up with GMP-certified Swiss Cannabis SA a partner of Schibano Pharma Group AG that manufactures a vast array of hemp-based products to provide signature CBD treatments to guests. 

Each CBD wellness treatment lasts for a full 80 minutes. After the session, guests can tap into the free WiFi and boast about their experience on social media. 

Located nearby is the Gornergrat Railway an “excursion destination” where tourists can get a ride to all of Switzerland’s leading mountain attractions.

Open everyday from 12:00 pm noon to 9:00 pm, the SchlossSpa invites guests aged 16 and over to wind down in the pool and textile sauna, which is also open to children, so long as they are accompanied by an adult.

Cannabis tourism spots expected to crop up around Europe

There’s no denying the fact that Europe is on the brink of a “cannatourism” breakthrough. While the CBD Schlosshotel is carefully navigating the legal boundaries of weed, Europe’s first cannabis wellness spa is sure to trigger a wave of change across the European continent, which is gradually learning to embrace the plant as a social norm.

Some recent advancements in the European cannabis space include the decriminalization of cannabis in Malta and Luxembourg. In addition to this, the rapid adoption of CBD in the wellness market the non-psychoactive cannabinoid is used as a tool for massage and skincare is prompting business owners to broaden their horizons by capitalizing on cannabis.

Conversely, Amsterdam appears to be taking a step backwards. Mayor of the city in the Netherlands, Femke Halsema, is intent on shutting Amsterdam’s cannabis cafes/coffee shops to tourists. Nonetheless, this doesn’t change the fact that cannabis is the most-used drug across the EU population, with analysts at Statista claiming that over a quarter use it at some point in their life.

Plus, with a recent survey finding that more than half of Europeans support cannabis legalization, there’s clearly a market for cannabis in the EU.
