What Are The Benefits of Cannabis Bath Bombs?
Throughout time, a hot bath has been considered both a luxury and a necessity!
For centuries, the benefits of a good hot water soak have been touted as a means of beautification, healing and ultimate relaxation. Now, that is even truer today than it has ever been because of the creation of the Cannabis Bath Bomb. It has been discovered that the cannabinoid CBD has multiple benefits when added to a hot bath. Let’s dive deep and explore the many surprising ways that a hot CBD Bath Bomb soak just might become your next big thing!
Health Benefits Of CBD Bath Bombs
To bathe or not to bathe, that might be your question. Your life is busy and showers are fast: however, those few extra minutes that it takes to draw a hot bath and soak might possibly add many more quality hours to your life, over time!
CBD has been shown to play a significant role in overall well-being, which includes physical, mental and emotional health. When CBD is applied to your skin, the largest organ of your body, it can ease local pain, deliver anti-inflammatory benefits, relieve tension, and soothe your emotions. When CBD is added to a hot bath it increases the absorption of the CBD by the skin along with receiving the benefits of soaking in hot water. A hot bath alone provides increased circulation, reduction in tension, easing sore muscles and joints and overall relaxation. By adding CBD Bath Bombs to the hot water you are deliciously increasing the absorption of the therapeutic CBD properties of pain relief, tension relief, reduction of inflammation, and mood elevation, to name a few.
Did I read mood elevation, you ask? Why yes, you did and here is why:
CBD interacts with your Endocannabinoid System (ECS) in your skin. In the same way that CBD interacts with the receptors on the cells in your brain, organs, muscles and immune system when you take it internally, it also interacts with the various ECS receptors in your skin. One of the actions of CBD is on the serotonin system in the brain. Serotonin is the ‘happy chemical’, which provides mood elevation and anxiety relief. It seems that soaking in hot water and a CBD Bath Bomb provides a similar effect. However, you won’t know for sure until you try it!
Another advantage of CBD Bath Bombs is that being immersed in the hot water allows your whole body to relax, float and absorb the CBD. This amplifies the beneficial effects because the body is in a relaxed and receptive state. The buoyancy of the body in water also assists in the relief of the natural pressure on the joints, allowing them to fully release tension. This is also a factor in helping to relieve muscle spasticity, which is another therapeutic benefit of CBD.
Combat a Cold and Fight Flu
The main goal of your endocannabinoid system is to keep your body in homeostasis, or in-balance. It does this by regulating the functions of the body that come under internal and environmental distress. The endocannabinoids that your body naturally produces help regulate and influence the function of the immune system. When you provide your body with a plant-based powerhouse cannabinoid-like CBD it increases the immunomodulators, and therefore boosts the ability of the body to both fight and prevent ailments.
So, when it comes to a cold or flu, just hop in a hot bath with a CBD Defense Bath Bomb and soak up the CBD and breath in the eucalyptus and other healing essential oils! It can be both your first and last line of defense!
Enhance Your Glow and Detox
Natural hemp flower CBD extract contains high concentrations of two of the most nourishing antioxidants for the skin, Vitamins E and C. These two rejuvenating vitamins encourage cell growth, ease the removal of dead cells, and provide exceptional hydration. Also, the omega fatty acids in CBD are the building blocks of healthy cells and provide anti-aging properties. The hot soak also helps your skin sweat and release unhealthy toxins, leaving your skin refreshed and renewed.
Skin Restoration and Anti Aging
One of the most powerful secrets to keeping young, fresh looking skin is CBD. Because it is packed full of antioxidants, which have been shown to be the master key in fighting free radicals, which are the culprits of aging skin. These antioxidants are the protectors and rejuvenators of our skin cells. They promote the healthy generation of new cells and protect our skin’s DNA.
In addition, CBD has been demonstrated to provide therapeutic rehabilitation for both major and minor skin disorders. CBD for eczema and psoriasis has been demonstrated to be an effective treatment for breakouts as well as a preventative.
CBD Bath Bombs can provide a deep absorption through the pores of your skin to deliver optimum benefits and soothe skin irritations.
CBD Bath Bombs For PMS and Menstrual Cramps
Menstrual cramps are never fun, however CBD can offer a quick fix to those pesky problems. CBD is great for relieving tension in muscles and that is exactly what cramps are. Menstrual cramps, or dysmenorrhea, are the tightening of the uterus: however, often it contracts strongly during the menstrual cycle and presses against nearby blood vessels. This briefly cuts off the supply of oxygen to the uterus. It is this lack of oxygen that causes pain and cramping. A hot CBD soak works to relieve menstrual muscle tension and decrease inflammation, which is linked to pain relief.
Immerse Yourself In Tranquility
CBD Bath Bombs with essential oils can turn an ordinary day into a luxurious DIY Spa Day. Just light some candles, grab your fluffy towel and robe or nightie, and soak in a hot CBD Bomb Bath! Say goodbye to worries and tension and say hello to ease and tranquility!
