With the decriminalization and legalization of medicinal and recreational weed being put into effect in several states nationwide, THC and CBD have become more pronounced and popular in aiding chronic (no pun intended) ailments than ever.
If you’ve been living under a rock and don’t know what CBD is, it’s an abbreviation for cannabidiol and doesn’t actually get you stoned, but does provide the happy medicinal benefits of marijuana.
According to Project CBD, this cannabis strain counteracts the THC effects that make you feel high and is actually an appealing and effective treatment for patients suffering from arthritis, chronic pain, PTSD, depression, epilepsy and even MS.
CBD has become somewhat trendy with this new wave of consumers who don’t see weed as just a drug. We now have CBD lattes, face masks, and healing creams for a generation more willing to try plant-based beauty and relaxation, or for those of us who haven’t found an effective way of alleviating pain, depression, or anxiety otherwise.
Some of us need a little more than rose petals and lavender in our baths in order to relax after a stressful week. Enter the mother of all relaxation: the CBD bath bomb.
An added bonus to many CBD bath bombs is that they are not tested on animals and are also non-GMO, eco-friendly and vegan, so don’t feel guilty about taking a luxurious bath when you need it. And if you’ve never tried bath bombs before, you’re in for an exciting way to treat yourself and your body.
Here are a few companies serving us superb bath realness.
Yas, Queen! This Los Angeles based female-focused brand is revolutionizing bath bombs with their carefully categorized treats made to target specific modes of relaxation.
