CBD Bath Bombs & the Benefits
What are CBD Bath Bombs?
Have you ever wanted an at-home spa? CBD bath bombs are your all-in-one solution, providing ultimate relaxation and relief from physical tension, topped by a colorful blast of aromatic fizziness.
If you’ve never seen bath bombs before, they are small “bombs” that burst into a scene of fizziness when dropped into water. Often they contain essential oils and other agents which provide a plethora of benefits and an all-around body-pampering experience.
How Do CBD Bath Bombs Work?
A unique combination of baking soda (sodium bicarbonate), citric acid, Epsom salts (magnesium sulfate), and natural, organic coloring produce the iconic fizziness brought on by bath bombs. Typically bath bombs will contain additives such as essential oils that double as aromatherapy agents, and nourishers that work directly on the skin. Together with the hot water of a bath, your body will feel about as close to a spa-like experience as you can get in a simple bath, but in the comfort of your own home, and for a cheaper price.
In the case of CBD bath bombs, the non-psychoactive cannabis constituent cannabidiol (CBD) is one of the additives placed in the product. CBD has remarkable healing properties, ranging from anxiolytic properties to powerful pain relief.
CBD is typically taken orally, smoked/vaporized, or applied topically, but bath bombs present a new method of ingestion: absorption through opened pores as a result of the heat of the bath.
This allows the CBD to reach the blood stream more rapidly than topical applications, and more importantly penetrate the skin throughout the entire body, rather than a small area.
