CBD Bath Bombs: The Next New Health Trend?
An Introduction To CBD Bath Bombs
Bath bombs are arguably the most popular bath additive and have been around for many years now. Even without CBD, and depending on the other active ingredients, your typical bath bomb can provide fizz, aromatherapy, and skin nourishment. When you add CBD into the mix you are setting yourself up for the ultimate pampered experience.
Very few activities are as relaxing and rewarding as a hot soaking bath. Whether you hit the tub to wash up, unwind mentally, ease stiff muscles, or promote a good night’s sleep, you know all about the healing power of a good hot soak. But if you thought taking a bath couldn’t get any better, think again. A CBD bath might just be the ultimate way to soothe your mind, body, and soul.
What Makes Up A CBD Bath Bomb?
Your typical bath bomb is going to consist of two main components, sodium bicarbonate and citric acid. From there each company has their own unique formula that goes into the finished product. At reLeaf Therapy our CBD bath bombs also are made with epsom salt, coconut oil, broad spectrum hemp extract, and a proprietary blend of essential oils ranging from peppermint, lemon, wild mint, lavender, and many more depending on which CBD bath bomb you pick. At the time of this blog, reLeaf Therapy currently have three different fragrances to choose from which each have their own make u of essential oils.
To be clear, you do not have to worry about your CBD bath bomb getting you high because we only use broad spectrum extract as opposed to full spectrum. This means there will be no Delta 9-THC which is the cannabinoid that causes the high associated with traditional marijuana. It is always important to check the ingredients listed on a bath bomb before use to make sure you are not putting any synthetic or fake chemicals into your tub that some cheaper companies may use to save on their cost.
How Do You Use A CBD Bath Bomb?
CBD bath bombs are popular because of the ease of use that come with them. Simply drop a bath bomb in a heated tub and watch as your bath water becomes infused with all the essential oils and hemp extract. The two most important factors are how long you soak in the bath and the water temperature. It should be noted that the water does not need to be scalding hot for the bath bomb to work but it should be at the very minimum warm to the touch. The warmer the water the more your skin pores will open which means a better absorption rate of CBD into your skin. It is recommended to at least soak for 20 minutes but it is perfectly fine to go longer.
How Much CBD Should Be In My Bath Bomb?
When buying a bath bomb, you want to make sure you are getting what you pay for. At the bare minimum, look for a CBD bath bomb that contains 50mg of CBD per bath bomb. Many companies put too little CBD in their bath bombs, like 25mg or less, which will not give you the desired outcome. At reLeaf Therapy, we like our CBD bath bombs to be potent which is why we put a minimum of 100mg of CBD into each one! Make sure which ever brand you choose from can provide full third-party lab testing so that you can verify the CBD amount per bath bomb. Without the proper lab testing a company can put any amount of CBD on a label but without the proper proof could be lying and you would never know.
Because we put 100mg of CBD in each of our bath bombs, a lot of customers will cut one of our bath bombs in half and make it last two baths which is totally fine, but we always tell people if they really want to treat themselves to throw the entire bath bomb in and enjoy!
How long does it take for a CBD bath bomb to work?
There are numerous factors that may determine how fast a CBD bath bomb will work from your own body mass and metabolism to the strength, size and potency of the bath bomb. reLeaf Therapy CBD Bath Bombs feature 100mg of broad spectrum hemp extract for your bathing pleasure. It is generally recommended you enjoy your bath for at least 20 minutes to fully take advantage of all the CBD. It may start working within minutes, however kicking back and really soaking it all in is the best practice.
It is not advised to use a CBD bath bomb if you must take a quick bath or are in a rush. CBD bath bombs are supposed to be enjoyed in a comfortable and soothing setting. Try not to worry about if the bath bomb is going to work or not and just relax and let the CBD and essential oils do their job. We promise you won’t be disappointed!
Can A CBD Bath Bomb Make Me Fail A Drug Test?
The short answer is it is highly unlikely for that to happen. If drug testing is a concern always make sure you choose a CBD bath bomb that contains either a CBD isolate or broad spectrum hemp extract. Even if you went with a full spectrum CBD bath bomb, the overall Delta 9-THC percent would be under 0.3% so it would almost be impossible considering that a bath bomb would not break the blood barrier like a inhalable or consumable hemp product. Still, if this is a concern, make sure you do not pick any full spectrum hemp products, including bath bombs, if failing a drug test is something that you must worry about. As stated earlier all of reLeaf Therapy’s bath bombs are broad spectrum and our third-party lab test show non detectable traces of THC.
What Makes reLeaf Therapy CBD Bath Bombs So Popular?
