Cannabis, or rather hemp and CDB oils, has become an increasingly popular skincare ingredient used by brands like Dr.Botanicals, The Body Shop and Eve Lom. While these CBD-infused lotions and potions are filled with essential fatty acids and antioxidants that moisturise and hydrate your skin, there’s now a new way to enjoy all the benefits of CBD – and it’s so relaxing! CBD bath salts and sleep drops are making their debut!
Why Include CBD-Infused Products In Your Bathing Ritual?
Did you know that CBD can help promote relaxation, allow you to get a better night’s sleep and generally make you feel better? And no, before you ask, it’s not because these products get you high. CBD is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid. It is just naturally soothing and calming.
Plus, when you dissolve a CBD-infused product in hot water and then bathe in that water, your body can absorb the CDB oil faster. You’ll not only enjoy the benefits of a soothing soak (which we can all agree is seriously relaxing) but the calming effects of the CBD too. It’s a win-win!
Will Hemp Products Have The Same Effect?
The terms CBD and hemp are often used interchangeably but there’s actually quite a big difference between the two:
- CBD: Extracted from the stalk, stems and flowers of the cannabis sativa plant, CBD is the ingredient that will have a relaxing effect on your brain.
- Hemp: Made from the seeds of the cannabis sativa plant, it doesn’t have the same relaxing and soothing properties as CBD. However, it is full of antioxidants, amino acids and omega fatty acids, so it will still benefit dry or irritated skin.
So, if you want to feel more chilled, opt for a CBD product. Of course, you can add a few drops of hemp oil into your tub too, as it will keep your skin hydrated and healthy.
