Why Take A Shower When These CBD Bath Bombs Exist?

If there were to be a definitive list of crucial questions you must ask your partner prior to taking the next step in your relationship, “Are you a bath or shower person?” would fall just below “Do you have a job?” and “Do you wear socks while you sleep?” in the deal-breaker hierarchy.

But why is it such a big deal whether or not someone likes to — as naysayers would call it — “bathe in their own filth”? It’s hard to pinpoint the origin of this debate, but the bottom line is that baths are not for everyone. Then again, not everyone has experienced the kind of bath bomb that turns your tub into an experience so heavenly, it transcends personal-hygiene preferences. This is where CBD bath bombs come in.

There are at least 100 active cannabinoids in cannabis, but CBD is the hottest one of all right now for a few reasons: It’s controversial (but mostly legal!) in a sexy don’t-tell-mom sort of way, it boasts anti-inflammatory properties that can help with acne and sunburns, and it’s not psychoactive, so The Man can’t get you down. And when infused inside a bath bomb, it takes the benefits to a whole new level. Who wouldn’t want their muscle relief with a side of possible euphoria?

Rest assured, these bath bombs aren’t nearly as showy or fragrant as the colorful, glitter-laced kind you might be familiar with. That’s a win-win for bath lovers and non-believers alike — and if anything could make you change your tune about that whole “bathing in your own filth” thing, it’s these. Our favorites, ahead…

Those vinyasa flows got you achy today? Use this bath bomb, which contains hemp-derived botanical oil to temporarily relieve pain as you bathe. Plus, if you really, really can’t stand a scented bath, you can get this one in fragrance-free form.

Not every bath bomb company reveals exactly how much CBD is used inside every powdered sphere, but Mirai Clinical does. Their basic $8 ball uses 35 mg per to chill you out within minutes. Granted, there’s not enough research yet to pinpoint the magic number that makes CBD topical treatments most effective, but by our own experience, this one sure does something.
