The use of cannabis is a great way to relax and to soothe aching joints and muscles. And many enjoy combining their cannabis use with another great relaxing pastime—a nice hot bath. Whether you smoke a joint or pop an edible before hopping in the tub, you’re bound to feel mellowed out and to have your pain alleviated by the time you get out.
But you can streamline this process with the help of cannabis or CBD infused bath bombs. Simply pop one of these little beauties into the hot water, let it dissolve, and your bath will be completely chilled out and ready for you to get the maximum benefit out of it.
A cannabis-infused bath bomb won’t get you high. Even if the cannabis used to create the bomb contains THC, it won’t be enough to penetrate to your bloodstream. This is true of all topicals—lotions, salves, and oils too. These tools are great for localized pain, but they’re not going to be enough to give you a high.
So if you’re looking to get blissed while you enjoy your bath, you’ll want to use another method in conjunction with your bath bomb. Joints or edibles might be the ideal choice. If you use a vape, think twice before bringing it in the tub with you!
If you don’t want to get high but are just looking for a little muscle relaxant and pain relief, a bath bomb could be the perfect solution.
In order to infuse a bath bomb, you will need the following:
Combine all the dry ingredients in a mixing bowl and whisk them together. Combine the wet ingredients in a glass and slowly stir them into the dry mixture. If you combine the ingredients properly, they should reach the texture and consistency of damp sand. Once this has been achieved, slightly overpack your bath bomb mold on each side and then press it closed. Hold for a few seconds, then remove the top half of the mold. This will expose the top half of your bath bomb to the air. Allow it to air dry for about 20 minutes.
When the time is up, carefully remove the other side of the mold. This is where you run the greatest risk of your bath bomb falling apart, so take your time. Once you have the mold removed, you should leave the bath bomb to dry for a further 24 hours without disturbing it.
After that, the hard part’s done! Now you get to enjoy your cannabis bath.
If you’re not familiar with bath bombs, never fear. It will take care of itself. All you need to do is turn on the hot water and drop in your creation. Immediately, you’ll see it start to dissolve, and the water will start to take on the color of the bomb you created. It’s visually stimulating, physically relaxing, and emotionally satisfying all in one.
The holidays are right around the corner, and a topical is a perfect way to bring a loved one into the world of cannabis for the first time, since it won’t get them high. Cannabis bath bombs make ideal stocking stuffers, so pick up the necessary ingredients and get to work. Your family and friends will thank you!
