While I like cannabis gummies, topicals, tinctures and pre-rolls, I have had the most success with CBD bath bombs.
At first, I was a bit skeptical.
The local dispensary offered a CBD bath bomb as their daily special. Because of the discounted price, I gave it a try. I’m not all that interested in sitting in fizzy bubbles for a spa-like experience. I want relief from aching muscles. Along with CBD, the bath bomb was made up of baking soda, Epsom salts, citric acid and essential oils such as lavender. CBD is the second-most abundant compound found in the cannabis plant and non-psychoactive. It has shown to reduce stress and anxiety, ease muscle and joint pain and even help with insomnia. The combination of a hot-water bath and CBD works to absorb the cannabinoids through open pores. It allows them to penetrate the skin across the whole body and reach the bloodstream quicker than with other types of topical application. The Endocannabinoid system or ECS of the human body is responsible for homeostasis. It affects mood, appetite, memory, pain, sleep and even the reproductive system. These bath balms smell amazing and are a soothing treat that I look forward to. I make time for a bath every Sunday. If I spend 30 minutes soaking in the tub with a CBD bath bomb, I noticed a huge improvement in my mobility. I have less stiffness and pain and higher energy levels. I feel happier and more relaxed and typically sleep better that night. The dispensary carries a variety of scents that are priced reasonably.
