A luxury downtown spa is offering people a chance to chill in its newest “holistic” wellness experience involving the hottest herb of the moment – cannabis – now until September.
Billed as Thailand’s first and only wellness services making use of the leaf, Panpuri now provides destressing services with aromatic sticky icky. They start with a cannabis herbal bath, where you’ll surround yourself with the aroma of cannabis laced with notes of lavender, rosemary and sweet basil.
There will also be Thai herbs within the herbal bag, like Cassumunar ginger, a member of the ginger family, for muscular and joint relief, lemongrass to promote skin health and boost immunity, and zedoary, a relative of turmeric, to reduce skin inflammation and swelling.
After that comes the steam room and Himalayan salt sauna, where the cannabis leaf and terpene oil will help you reach an enlightened level of calm, while also purifying your skin and removing toxins.
There’s also the wellness bar, where you can cleanse your body with a cannabis-infused menu crafted by Panpuri’s nutritionists. Think locally grown ingredients from northern Thailand, like avocado, Vietnamese coriander, tomatoes, riceberry, spinach and mulberry. In other words, lots of leafy greens, but no grass.
Panpuri’s holistic cannabis wellness experience is available every weekend at Panpuri Wellness on the 12th floor of Gaysorn Tower.
It’s impossible not to notice the current hype around cannabis in Thailand. CBD products have spread like a weed to cafes, restaurants, cosmetics and desserts. Medical marijuana became legal in 2019 — albeit it is still very strictly controlled and limited to licensed clinics and hospitals.
