Benefits of Cannabis Bath Bombs
Bath Bombs are just a way to apply topical cannabis. Besides total relaxation and pain reduction, bath bombs offer an array of skin care benefits. The main benefit os using cannabis infused bath bombs is that it can combat wrinkles and sun damage with antioxidant and anti-aging properties. Thanks to their role in the body’s response to pain, cannabinoid receptors are found in our skin, allowing the body’s internal endocannabinoids to respond to damage and irritation.
Antioxidant properties help mitigate damage to the skin from the “free radicals” found in UV rays, smoke, and air pollution. This damage can cause your skin to appear older, and in time can even lead to skin cancer. Cannabis infused bath bombs, are one way to fight this process. Anti-inflammatory properties can fight the swelling and puffy appearance of tired skin, and can even treat conditions such as psoriasis and eczema. Any cannabis topical that contains hempseed oil will also impart the benefits of omega-3 fatty acids. These aid in moisturizing dry skin, and can help THC do even more to protect against sun damage and skin cancer.
The benefits of cannabis bath bombs can also extend to pain relief. The anti-inflammatory properties of CBD can be the perfect addition to a bath bomb for pain related to inflammation such as arthritis. Cannabis topicals in general are a great way to treat menstrual cramps, and a bath bomb or soak is the perfect way to apply cannabis to this end. And finally, a cannabis bath bomb is the perfect thing for sore muscles after a long day of physically demanding labor or working out. Think of them as super-charged Epsom salts, especially since many both bombs also include essential oils that are great for both skin care and sore muscles – as well as everything from migraines to insomnia. And, if you happen to have also enjoyed cannabis in one of its psychoactive forms prior to using a bath bomb, you’ll likely find all the colourful fizziness of the bombs pretty mesmerizing.
