CBD in the bath.
Have you ever wondered how you can make your bath more relaxing? Or wondered if that’s even possible? Well we are here today to tell you that it is thanks to CBD!
In today’s blog post we are going to cover what exactly CBD bath bombs are, how to use them and the benefits users can experience from adding this wonderful form of CBD to your relaxation routine.
What Exactly Is a CBD Bath Bomb?
CBD bath bombs are an amazing innovation that allows users to obtain their dose of CBD transdermally. So, if you are a bath lover and love relaxing and unwinding after a long day at work, strenuous workout, or anything in between, CBD may be the answer for you.
CBD bath bombs are one of the newest innovations in CBD products. If you are wondering, rest assured, they will not get you high. They are simply a regular bath bomb taken to the next level with an infusion of CBD and a great option for individuals new to the CBD world looking for a way to test out the therapeutic benefits of CBD without ingesting the compound!
How to Use CBD Bath Bombs
CBD bath bombs can be utilized just like any other bath product you are currently using or may have tried in the past! Outlined below are the steps to take to achieve maximum benefits.
- Fill your bathtub at a temperature comfortable for you (water temperature will not change the efficacy of the CBD bath bomb)
- Once full, get in the bath
- Drop bath bomb into the water
- Relax and enjoy your bath- for best results we recommend staying in for 20-30 minutes!
And here are some additional suggestions to further enhance your relaxation while enjoying your CBD bath:
- Light a candle: Candles help to add to the ambiance of the whole bath experience and are often linked to relaxation and warmth themselves. Choose your favorite scent, close your eyes and enjoy the soothing aroma of the candle and bath bomb working at one.
- Turn on relaxing music or your favorite movie/T.V. show: What better addition to an already relaxing bath than listening to your favorite playlist or watching your favorite show!
- Apply CBD topically after getting out of the bath: If you want to target a trouble area post soak, apply topical CBD to your warm skin to increase product absorption.
Benefits of CBD Bath Bombs
Baths are a common “self-care” method and have an array of physical and mental benefits- from promoting a good night’s rest to soothing sore muscles. By adding a CBD bath bomb to this already relaxing luxury, users will take their bath experience to the next level!
Hot baths are an effective way to calm inflammation
Studies have found hot baths to reduce inflammation due to vasodilation of blood vessels, leading to further relaxation of sore or tense muscles. This can also benefit individuals recovering from an injury or suffering from chronic pain. Adding CBD bath bombs may help to promote enhanced pain relief due to the products anti-inflammatory properties. A study from the European Journal of Pain showed, using an animal model, CBD applied on the skin could help lower pain and inflammation due to arthritis.
CBD is better absorbed through the skin
Whether using a CBD bath bomb or topical CBD, users often feel the therapeutic effects within a matter of minutes due to absorption occurring at a faster rate. This is contrary to ingesting the compound orally as it must first pass through the digestive tract. Topical CBD is great if you are looking for targeted relief, however CBD bath bombs allow for a whole-body experience leading to greater results.
Baths have mood boosting benefits
Hot baths have been proven to improve one’s mood by calming the central nervous system, leading to a decrease in stress and anxiety. In addition, several studies have pointed to CBD’s benefits for those suffering with anxiety.
Baths help to promote a better night’s rest
Baths have been known to help promote relaxation and a better night’s rest. In fact, researchers recommend taking a hot bath in order to fall asleep faster. The drop-in body temperature caused by “the cooling down period” after soaking in a warm bath is what promotes relaxation. CBD has also been shown to promote a better night’s rest by helping individuals fall asleep, stay asleep and alleviate outside issues that amplify insomnia such as anxiety and pain.
Overall, CBD can enhance the therapeutic benefits baths are known to have!
