Taking a relaxing bath at the end of a long day is one of the most luxurious ways to treat yourself. An evening soak can relax sore muscles, replenish the skin, and offer a temporary escape from daily stressors. If you already enjoy the tranquility of soothing bath treatments, you’re going to absolutely love the all-around rejuvenating experience of a CBD bath.
As more is learned about the botanical benefits of cannabidiol (CBD), one of the most abundant natural cannabinoids found in cannabis, consumers are exploring different ways of using cannabinoids for wellness. Today, you can bring CBD hemp oil and its detoxifying and rejuvenating benefits with you into the bathroom with a CBD bath.
Hemp oil bath products have grown in popularity in recent years, with the natural mind and body balancing effects of cannabidiol (CBD) making its way into CBD soaking salts, CBD bath bombs, and CBD bath soaks.
While human skin, in general, has low permeability and blocks most substances from being absorbed, soaking in infused CBD bath soaks allow the nourishing cannabinoid to overcome this barrier and penetrate the skin’s surface where it can soothe, fortify, and moisturize.
How Are CBD Bath Products Absorbed Through the Skin?
While you relax with a CBD bath soak, the CBD and other skin promoting nutrients infused into your favorite CBD bath product pass through the epidermis, glands, and hair follicles on the skin’s surface.
Skin Benefits of CBD Salt Baths
Exposure to the world around us can damage our skin, leaving it painfully dry and cracked. One of the most important steps to maintaining healthy skin, hair, and nails is to provide them the right vitamins and minerals to function at their best.
Besides the botanical benefits of CBD, hemp oil bath products offer other essential nutrients that protect and rejuvenate the skin. Full spectrum hemp oil contains a list of vitamins, minerals, proteins, and fatty acids.
Hemp contains the optimal ratio of omega 3 and omega 6 fatty acids, which serve as great emollients to soften and smooth the hair and skin. Key elements in a natural skincare diet, these fatty acids are the building blocks of healthy cell membranes and produce the skin’s natural oil barrier that is critical in keeping the skin hydrated and supple.
The collection of vitamins found in CBD bath products, including CBD infused salts and bombs leave the skin looking radiantly healthy and feeling silky soft. Responsible for skin growth and metabolism, vitamins A and D play an essential role in skin repair. Vitamins C and E serve as antioxidants by rejuvenating the skin’s protective outer layer, and protecting it against damage from the sun and free radicals.
How CBD Bath Products Differ From Other CBD Products
Thanks to the growing demand for CBD and great advances in CBD hemp oil product development over the past few years, there are now a wide variety of CBD hemp oil products available. Besides CBD bath and beauty products, consumers can select from CBD products in the form of CBD oil concentrates, capsules, and CBD tinctures or liquids.
With soothing CBD bath products, rather than ingesting or inhaling CBD oil products orally, which requires metabolism by the liver and will distribute the oil’s natural compounds throughout the whole body, the hemp oil’s cannabinoids and other nutrients are absorbed directly into the skin for more localized and focused attention.
Because the nutrients of CBD bath products are absorbed through the skin, the hemp oil’s cannabinoids, vitamins, and minerals never reach the bloodstream. Instead, the CBD interacts with cannabinoid receptors located throughout the skin to provide botanical benefits where they’re needed most.
Because the cannabinoids never reach the bloodstream, even cannabis bath products that contain the psychoactive cannabinoid tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) will never cause an intoxicating high. Still, cannabinoid-infused bath products derived from marijuana are only available in states that have legalized recreational or medical marijuana. Hemp CBD bath products, on the other hand, are available in most major markets.
Bathing with CBD
While the idea of a CBD bath soak is relatively new, a variety of cannabis bath products have already hit the market.
Soothing CBD salts, CBD bath soaks, and CBD bombs blend full spectrum cannabis oil extracts with other high quality carrier oils and aromatherapeutic essential oils, natural fragrances, and additional skin nourishing bathing salts, like magnesium rich Epsom salts and nutrient dense sea salts.
Drizzle your CBD bath product into a warm bath for a fizzy, invigorating explosion of color, scent, and moisturizing oils. The salts and oils dissolve when placed under running warm water to produce a botanical CBD extract infused soak.
