The hamstrings may be the most problematic muscle group that I’ve seen in my years as a trainer and massage therapist. They (the hamstrings) cross more than one joint, and commonly contribute to pain and injury in the knees and lower back. In our sedentary culture, the hamstrings are often chronically shortened by sitting, which further exacerbates follow-on issues.
Touch has profound benefits for human beings. But over the last few decades, people have become increasingly cautious about socially touching others for a range of reasons.

While I’m not questioning the benefits or the role it can play in pain relief, for now the answer is no. We do not offer CBD oil massage. With more information I might retract my position and this article.
