CBD Bath Bombs are well...The Bomb!!
I live in an environment that is constantly cold (at least for me) 365 days a year! There are very few days that make me think, “OMG! Today is a perfect 10!”
With the winds, overcast days, and temps in the 40s-50’s constantly, I’m always bundled up and can’t wait to get inside (even a car is a nice respite).
On those especially cold days, I like to take a hot shower and warm up. One day I decided, “Hey, today was a rough day at work and I could use some relaxation”. So I reached for my bag of epsom salts and poured it into my bath and had a relaxing time.
The next morning while I was getting ready for work, a thought occurred to me, “Why not experiment with a CBD bath bomb? Yeah it’s supposed to be ‘feminine’, but who the heck cares!?”
With that thought in mind, I set out to research CBD bath bombs across the internet. I found a TON of products in my research, not to mention lots of positive reviews on all the brands.
CBD Bath Bomb Introduction
After much research, review reading, and price comparison, I decided to take the plunge with cbdMD and their high potency 100mg broad spectrum CBD bath bomb.
They were available in 4 different aromas. Lavender, Eucalyptus, Frankincense, Blend. When I ordered my first trial bath bomb, they were a bit more expensive than they are today. I paid $16 (with shipping) for one bomb. Yeah, that’s pretty pricey for a bath bomb, but hey, this was a cheap investment in a trial.
So I decided on the Lavender aroma and I have to say, the package arrived smelling very nice 🙂
Setting up the CBD Bath Bomb Trial
I knew that if I were to test the CBD Bath Bomb to it’s fullest extent, I’d have to be in some pretty bad shape, physcially.
So, off to the gym! I went with a good friend and we tag teamed the dumbbells and barbells.
Whooo…what a workout. He pushed me past my limit. That’s both good and bad. I felt great afterwards, but sitting in the car on the drive home, the pain set in quite quickly. PERFECT!!
What's the CBD Bath Bomb Experience?
So, I prepared the bath (thankfully I didn’t have to scrub it first). I waited for the bath to fill up and then I proceeded to open the CBD Bath Bomb packaging and dropped it into the tub. Watching the effervescence, brought me back to my childhood with volcanoes and baking soda, hehe.
I knew I had to be in there for at minimum 20 minutes. After reading many of the reviews, many people stated 20-30 minutes soak time. So, to stave off boredom, I put my phone in a ZipLoc bag and queued up, “Avengers: Infinity War”.
Yes, the bath was really hot, I was dripping with sweat, but wow, did I feel great. The water turned silky, almost like butter. The ingredients really turned the bath into something you’d expect from a spa. I was so relaxed and enjoying the movie that I missed the 20 minute mark and went to 30 minutes.
After I showered real quickly and drained the tub, I got out of the tub and felt SO GOOD! I’ll be absolutely honest, I didn’t think I’d feel any different than taking just a plain epsom salt bath, but here we are.
I didn’t think I’d need to apply any body lotion because the skin softeners in the bath bomb, I felt, were sufficient.
I went into the kitchen to hydrate myself from such a hot bath. As I was pouring my glass of water a wave of exhaustion hit me. It really felt like someone pulled the plug on me. I walked back to the bedroom, charged up my phone, turned off the lights and ZONK! I was out within 2 minutes of hitting the pillow.
CBD Bath Bomb After Effects
Generally after a hard workout, and especially after yesterday’s workout, I expected to be in so much pain. Pain with every arm raise, with every step, with every bend. I was preparing myself for the morning cringe.
I was in such a great mood! I awoke before my alarm. I sat at the edge of my bed pressing on all of the muscles that I figured would be painful to the touch. Yeah, there was some tenderness, but it wasn’t to the level that I was expecting. I sat there, truly amazed in wonder at how well the CBD Bath Bomb worked. As I sauntered to the kitchen to make breakfast, I realized I had a lot more energy than I expected; not only that, but I was in a great mood too. Amazing what a good night’s sleep will do for that body, mind and soul.
My experience with the CBD Bath Bomb definitely reflected the experiences that other people have reported.
I’M A BELIEVER!
If my story enticed you to at least try out a CBD Bath Bomb, I suggest you look at higher concentration bath bombs. I’ve seen them as low as 25 mg up to 200 mg. I went with the 100 mg concentration and I felt great. I can only imagine how well I’d feel if I went with a higher concentration. Maybe start with a 60mg or higher and look for skin softening ingredients like shea butter and essential oils.
