Many of us love to relax with a bath. A hot bath can be a cure for a lot of life’s stresses and strains, and people are often looking for new ways to make their bath even more relaxing. Bath bombs have been popular for a long time, but they haven’t always been sold as marijuana products. Now, people are waking up to THC bath bombs or even CBD bath bombs as a way to further help with the relaxation we all crave.
Cannabis bath bombs can be great for people suffering from anxiety or to soothe our senses in a number of ways. Los Angeles dispensaries may sell topical marijuana products and bath bombs, but in this post, we’re looking at both THC bath bombs and CBD bath bomb recipes for those who want to make their own.
Ingredients for Cannabis Bath Bombs
What do you need to make your own bath bombs? What is the best CBD bath bomb recipe?
- 3 tbsp Cannabis oil. This can come in the form of either CBD oil or THC oil (more on this later)
- 1 tbsp coconut oil (or olive oil if you don’t have coconut oil or want to save money)
- 1 cup baking soda
- 1/2 cup Epsom salts
- 1/2 cup starch such as cornstarch
- A dash of water
- Other essential oils. You can choose to add oils based on the way they help the body and the brain. For instance, lavender if you wish to relax.
These are the main, most common ingredients, but there’s some room to experiment here. If you want to add some colors, use food dyes to make some cool marbling effects (not too much, though).
Making THC Bath Bombs
To actually make the THC bath bombs, get some marijuana oil ready first.
Mix all of the ingredients mentioned above and combine them slowly. Start with the dry ingredients and add in the oils and a little dash of water. The consistency should be suitable for holding and shouldn’t crumble when you make it into shape. If it is too dry and crumbly you can add a little bit of water.
Place these into a mold. You can choose all kinds of different molds, you can even buy things like cookie cutters if they’re big enough. This is a chance to make your bath bomb look cool, too.
Adding the THC oil is where your own personal judgment might come into things. You should decide how much you want to put in. We recommend starting with about ⅙ to ¼ of a teaspoon of cannabis oil. You can adjust this if needed.
Making CBD Bath Bombs
Making CBD bath bombs involves the exact same process, the only difference is that instead of using a THC oil to make a THC bath bomb you are creating a CBD bath bomb recipe. Just swap the THC oil for CBD. THC will not make you high when used in a bath bomb, and CBD is more affordable. Plus, in some areas where THC is not legal, CBD can still be purchased and used with no legal implications.
You might want to experiment with using a little bit more CBD oil in the recipe. The anti-inflammatory properties are particularly useful and mean that you will likely find CBD oil bombs to be a very soothing recipe, and also something that you can use more regularly without worrying about the cost.
Tips for Using Marijuana Bath Bombs
When you are mixing and making your marijuana bath bombs, be sure to evenly mix the oil, as well as the other ingredients. If not, you run the risk of it all being in a couple of the bath bombs while some of the other bath bombs have no cannabis in them at all.
You won’t get high from marijuana bath bombs unless they are ingested. Be careful not to ingest any of the water (some of the ingredients are not designed for being swallowed!)
Our recipe is not designed to be followed exactly to the letter, you can always experiment and add your own elements to the recipe. Adding different essential oils is one of the ways you can make it your own, and if you are suffering from a specific affliction then this can be something you can use to target aches and pains or mental stress you are encountering. A THC or marijuana bath bomb can be more than just cannabis!
