Enjoy the hemp-filled water with nourishing ingredients when taking the hemp bath bombs.
Bath bombs are small balls that are dosed in milligrams per bath bomb. The dosage ranges from 25 milligrams and above; therefore, it is up to the user to choose the prescription that works for them. Beginners are advised to start small and gradually increase the dosage. The hemp bath bombs are designed to dissolve in water when they come in contact with warm water. They release the hemp contents into the water, such as cannabinoids, essential oil, and fragrances, which enhance the health of your skin (Ali et al., 2015). Using CBD bath bombs will enhance your bath experience and improve your general body health.
CBD reacts with the body differently. It is not similar to THC, associated with a mental alteration that makes a person feel ‘high’. THC has a psychoactive property, thus changing the mental state. CBD has different properties associated with it, including anti-inflammatory and muscle relaxation; it also relieves body pain (Samarut et al., 2019)
According to Kodali (2019), including the CBD bath bombs in your bathtub will help reduce acne, prevent skin dryness and itchiness, and reduce the appearance of wrinkles and aging. They help the skin with this by opening the pores on the skin, enabling more better absorption.
There are characteristics you need to know when you will get the bath bombs from your use. This includes confirming the type of CBD, strength, and variety.
There are three types of CBD. You will need to choose the product based on your needs and what you need the product for. Check if the brand uses full or broad-spectrum isolate CBD. The difference between the three types of CBD is based on the compound contents. Full-spectrum CBD contains all the components found in the hemp plants, and therefore when you use any product with this type of CBD, you will benefit from all the ingredients and contents of the plant, including THC, which is extracted from the hemp. The broad-spectrum CBD contains the cannabinoids and other compounds of the plant except for THC, while the isolate CBD, also known as pure CBD, contains those cannabinoids alone; they also come in crystal or powder form. These products limit the consumer from benefiting from another compound, but it is best used on sensitive body parts and the face because they will not clog pores.
CBD bath bombs range from 25 milligrams and above. Confirm how many milligrams are contained in one CBD bath bomb. The size of the bathtub will determine the concentration to be used. Therefore, a large soaker bathtub will need a high concentration; thus, the bath bombs that have 100 milligrams or more can give you the best. Since people have different preferences, some will prefer using the small bath bombs as they will gradually take as many as they desire throughout the bath.
How much will it cost you for a bath bomb, and what is its price per milligram? The bath bomb should not cost you so much. Generally, most products containing the isolated CBD tend to be lower than the full and broad-spectrum CBD.
Are the bath bombs packaged in an eco-friendly way?
Some of the CBD products have added ingredients and coloring. Some bath bombs have artificial dyes which might be reactive to the skin. Therefore, choosing a brand that uses natural colors instead of synthetic ones would be best. Also, check for organic CBD products with zero phthalates and other chemicals that might harm the skin.
The Bath bomb has fragrances except for the isolate CBD, which is 99% pure. The fragrances vary with the company; therefore, some brands design bath bombs to cultivate different moods for the user. For example, the essential oil has an added advantage when used, such as relieving the body from muscle aches and joint pains, making the body relax, while inhaling lavender eases tension and anxiety, promoting relaxation (Ali et al., 2015).
Using CBD bath bombs is not complicated. Fill the bathtub with warm water, drop the CBD bath bombs in the water, put the whole dosage that you want for the bath, or you can start with a small concentration and add as you continue. Wait for the bombs to dissolve and release the components into the water. Sink into the water and relax for about 20 to 30 minutes to allow the ingredients to interact with the skin to get the desired benefits.
Some people choose to rinse themselves after the bath with cold water to remove the lingering scent on their skin. However, it is unnecessary because it might remove the cannabinoid from the skin affecting its treatment benefit.
Hazekamp (2018) researched the risks associated with topical use of CBD, both short-term and long-term. There are fewer side effects associated with CBD bath bombs; however, it is crucial to stop getting off the water and rinse your skin when you find discomfort ( irritation, rashes, or swelling)when using CBD bath bombs.
Some common reported CBD side effects include; change in appetite, diarrhea, increased fatigue, and drowsiness. Some consumers have reported skin irritation associated with fragrances such as essential oil (Larsen and Shahinas (2020).
If you are under medication, you should consult your doctor to confirm potential reactions with the m education you are using. Also, it is good to consult before using the CBD bath bombs if you are pregnant or breastfeeding.
CBD bath bombs offer your body relaxation after having a long hectic day; therefore, having time to take a warm bath every evening will help you relax the muscles ease pain and anxiety, and thus have a quality sleep. These are some benefits of CBD bath bombs apart from general skin health. Similarly, the use of the n bath bombs is a way to have a natural self-care routine for the body and the mind
