Love of the outdoors (skiing, hiking, snowboarding etc.) was the inspiration for Lacuna Botanicals.  Whether in the city or in the mountains, our bodies take a beating every day. From sore joints to dry skin and everything in between, we felt there had to be a natural alternative to prescription opiates and silicon/petroleum-based skin care products that have flooded the market. Like many people, we’ve tried numerous products, with most never quite getting the job done. In response, we started Lacuna Botanicals with the mission of creating the best all natural products we could. We meticulously source the highest quality ingredients locally and from around the world.  

Working with massage therapists in Colorado’s top ski destinations and spas, we developed the world’s first purpose-built CBD infused massage cream, Deep Tissue in 2015.   Rather than just a simple lotion with CBD in it, Deep Tissue was designed from the ground up as a massage powerhouse with over a dozen pain-relieving essential oils, plant terpenes and CBD from finest quality Colorado hemp we grow ourselves.  Since 2015, we’ve developed a complete portfolio of the industry’s most innovative premium CBD spa products and are rapidly expanding to work with spas across the country.   Give our products a try, we’re sure you’ll love them!
