Soaking in warm water after a long day or an intense workout is the ultimate before-bed ritual. Yet, in case they weren’t already relaxing enough, baths and showers are getting a CBD injection.
Bath bombs, bath salts, shampoos, soaps, and shower gels have been added to what seems like an infinite list of Cannabidiol-infused products on the market in 2019 — of course, you already know that beverages, skincare, and even hamburgers have already received the CBD treatment.
Unlike tetrahydrocannabinol (or THC), CBD is a non-psychoactive phytocannabinoid known for its calming effects – it won’t get you high. It has been touted for a wide variety of health issues, from helping with issues such as anxiety, insomnia, chronic pain, and skincare conditions like eczema, to reducing or putting a stop to seizures in children diagnosed with certain epilepsy syndromes.

CBD gets absorbed more efficiently into the bloodstream via the skin than when it’s ingested orally, and it tends to have more direct results too, which explains the boom in CBD skincare. Dissolving a CBD-infused product into hot water and soaking in it means exposing your entire body to its unique properties, and also expedites the absorption of CBD through your pores.
If you want to intensify your soaking sesh, here’s a list of CBD-infused bath and shower products that’ll do just that.
