Bath bombs are one of the latest trends to hit the cannabinoid world. It is not surprising that CBD bath bombs have become so popular so quickly. CBD bath bombs take an already much-loved item associated with relaxation and combine it with the benefits of CBD.
Bath bombs have always been considered a luxurious item that can enhance even the most boring of baths. Often used to transform the color and aroma of bathwater, bath bombs have long been a great way to relax and unwind after a particularly stressful day. Adding CBD to bath bombs takes the idea of a therapeutic bath to the next level.
Here is why so many people are swapping showers for calming baths infused with a CBD bath bomb and their many benefits.
What Are CBD Bath Bombs & How Are They Different from Normal Bath Bombs?
CBD bath bombs are considered a type of topical. Other popular topicals include CBD creams, patches, and sprays. Like with other topicals, CBD bath bombs affect the areas of the body that they come into contact with, instead of the entire body, as is the case with CBD oil, for example.
In a lot of ways, CBD bath bombs are the same as regular bath bombs. The main difference between the two items is that the former contains CBD extract.
CBD bath bombs are made using many of the same ingredients as regular bath bombs, including therapeutic flowers and herbs. They also include essential nutrients that help to moisturize and care for the skin.
The way in which the two products are used is also the same. Both CBD and non-CBD bath bombs are designed to be placed into a tub of bath water and to fizz slowly, infusing the water with color and aroma. In the case of CBD bath bombs, the water also becomes infused with CBD and the other hemp plant compounds.
Here are some of the most common benefits that people experience by swapping showers for CBD-infused baths.
The Cosmetic Benefits of CBD Bath Bombs
There is a growing market for CBD cosmetics and beauty-focused products. CBD has been found to hydrate skin, keeping it looking and feeling healthy.
CBD bath bombs are an excellent option for people looking to experience the benefits of cannabidiol across their entire bodies. Other cosmetics like CBD creams are great at targeting specific areas like the face, but are slightly less effective when looking to improve the overall appearance of skin.
As the CBD within bath bombs infuses the water in the tub, it can come into contact and have an effect on a large proportion of the body. CBD bath bombs also tend to contain other natural plant compounds that also help to hydrate and care for the skin.
CBD bath bombs are also an excellent option for people who suffer from dry and damaged skin. The hydrating effects of CBD paired with the ingredients already found in bath bombs can aid in the recovery of damaged skin and prevent it from becoming dry in the future.
CBD Baths Can Help to Reduce Pain
One of the most common uses of CBD is to relieve pain. There are many different CBD products that are effective at treating pain, such as capsules, oils, and creams. CBD bath bombs offer a few extra benefits, however, that cannot be found in other CBD products designed to treat pain.
CBD bath bombs pair the pain-relieving effects of CBD with the relaxed sensation that can only be felt with a warm bath. For those who suffer from annoying chronic pain, the effects can sometimes be as hard to deal with mentally as they are physical. CBD bath bombs help to treat both problems by reducing pain but also relaxing the mind with a calming and beautifully scented bath.
CBD Bath Bombs Can Improve Sleep and Reduce Stress
It has been found in a number of studies that CBD can be used to improve both the quality and the length of a personís sleep. Using CBD during the evening or shortly before heading to bed can help both the mind and body unwind.
While there are many effective ways to use CBD to improve sleep, bath bombs are considered to be one of the best options. Baths are often associated with being relaxing and are seen to be a great thing to do during the evening to unwind. Adding the extra calming effects of CBD further improves the effects that a bath can have on quality of sleep.†
The calming effects of CBD bath bombs can also be used to help reduce and manage stress. Baths have always had a reputation for being an excellent way to unwind and block out stress and anxiety. Adding a CBD bath bomb into the water further enhances these benefits.
