There are so many ways to utilize CBD so finding the right product for you can be a bit of a process to find what works best. But one of the easiest ways to utilize CBD and its potential benefits is simply by taking a bath. Yep—CBD bath salts are a great way to take care of your skin and just relax.
It’s as easy as just taking a bath and soaking in the cannabinoids.
But exactly how do those bath salts work and why might they be helpful?
How do they work?
So when you put CBD into your bath water and soak it in, the idea is your skin will absorb the compounds and take advantage of them.
Typically the skin is not a super permeable layer, but when it comes to CBD, the cannabinoids are easily absorbed by the skin and it has been shown to have lots of helpful properties.
Bath products pass through the epidermis, glands, and hair follicles on the skin’s surface. Then the real work begins as the vitamins, minerals proteins and fatty acids get to work. Here are some of the properties that are a part of hemp itself, and therefore are also in the bath salts.
Omega 3 and Omega 6 fatty acids: Hemp has the optimal ratio to help soften and smooth hair and skin.
Vitamins A and D: These help with skin repair and keeping skin healthy.
Vitamins C and E: Antioxidants rejuvenate the skin’s protective outer layer.
This is a big difference compared to consuming CBD through an edible or oil because the CBD will not make its way to the bloodstream which allows for a more targeted approach when soaking the CBD.
How can CBD bath salts help?
When it comes to CBD bath salts utilizing full-spectrum CBD is key because that gives you the whole slate of compounds that have been shown to help in various ways.
All of these factors work together to help:
- Pain relief in muscles and bones
- Relief for skin conditions (rashes, eczema, psoriasis)
- Anxiety relief
- Help with acne
