What are CBD Bath Bombs?

What better way to relax at the end of a tiring day than to hop in a bath? Well, let me tell you what, hopping in a CBD bath!

That’s right, CBD bath bombs can make your bathing experience a lot more relaxing and beneficial.


CBD Bath Bombs – An Introduction

CBD bath bombs are just like regular bath bombs, except, even better! They’re infused with CBD oil. For those of you hearing about CBD for the first time, it stands for “cannabidiol.”

It’s a natural cannabinoid extracted from multiple parts of the hemp plant and could be potentially beneficial for a lot of health problems including pain, inflammation and acne!


How CBD Bath Bombs Work

CBD bath bombs contain CBD oil. When you’re immersed in a CBD hot bath, your blood vessels get dilated because of the heat. Moreover, the pores all over your body also open up to release toxins and absorb CBD oil. Dilated vessels and open pores lead to better absorption of the CBD oil from the bath bomb!

Once CBD is in your bloodstream, it influences the endocannabinoid receptors of your endocannabinoid system. (ECS)

Studies also suggest that it increases the sensitivity of serotonin receptors in your brain. Serotonin is responsible for regulating your mood, sleep and appetite!

Thus, by hopping into a CBD bath bomb, you’re taking CBD oil in your bloodstream and letting it work its magic on your body!


Benefits of CBD Bath Bombs

Here are a few of the many benefits of CBD bath bombs:


·         CBD bath bombs relieve inflammation

CBD oil is known for its anti-inflammatory properties. Inflammation is one of the key factors responsible for many chronic illnesses including diabetes mellitus (type 2), inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), acne, arthritis, and other heart and brain diseases.

By reducing inflammation, especially on your skin, CBD oil can reduce your chances of getting these diseases.



·         It’s great for your skin!

CBD oil nourishes your skin and gives it a rejuvenating glow. It’s great for managing breakouts because it can reduce the production of sebum in your skin and it reduces the inflammation associated with breakouts. Moreover, it can also relieve itchiness and reduce redness and swelling all over your body.

CBD oil can also be effective for psoriasis, dermatitis and eczema.

·        CBD bath bombs can soothe sore muscles and body aches

CBD oil enters the bloodstream and works on neurons to reduce the pain sensations that your brain perceives. Moreover, it reduces inflammation and soothes your sore muscles. It can significantly improve pain in conditions like arthritis, muscle spasms, and other chronic conditions!
A CBD bath is extremely beneficial after a workout.


·         It relieves stress and anxiety

Baths are already pretty relaxing, and CBD enhances this effect. By influencing serotonin receptors, CBD oil can improve your mood and reduce anxiety. It can also reduce the symptoms of other mental health illnesses including depression and PTSD!


So, what are you waiting for? Make yourself a CBD bath bomb and let all your stress melt away!

How to make CBD Infused BBQ Sauce

The holidays are all about BBQ and grilling. It may take a little more time, but the final product of all the effort is worth it. You can make the chicken or steaks even more delicious by seasoning it with CBD infused BBQ sauce. If you want to be named the family's best chef, here is the recipe for CBD infused BBQ sauce.
But first, there are many ways to make BBQ sauce infused with CBD. You can use cannabis, but or trim or use cannabutter or oil or even CBD isolate can be used. Our recipe focuses on using cannabis buds or trims.

·         Ten grams of cannabis bud or trim but do not use both as the sauce may become extra intense.
·         ¾ cup of tomato paste
·         ⅓ cup of vegetable oil
·         1 clove of finely chopped garlic
·         3 Tbsps of finely chopped green onion
·         2 Tbsps of brown sugar
·         2 Tbsps of organic cider vinegar
·         2 Tbsps of Worcestershire sauce
·         1 Tbsp of Dijon mustard
·         1 Tbsp of honey
·         1Tbsp of soy sauce
·         ½ Tbsp of chili flakes
·         A pinch of cayenne pepper and ginger powder each
·         1 small lemon
·         Salt and pepper, to taste
·         ¼ cup of water

How to make it?
To start making CBD infused BBQ sauce, begin with taking a crockpot. Grind the cannabis bud or trim as finely as you can. Now add a few drops of water, cannabis powder, onion, and lemon juice to the crockpot. Cook the ingredients for at least 90 minutes on low flame and make sure that the mixture doesn't boil. Now add all the remaining ingredients and let it simmer on medium heat. This step is necessary to make sure the cannabis is decarboxylated, and the THC in it is activated. Now cook the mixture for another 45 minutes. Achieve the consistency you want and turn off the flame. You can store this sauce in an airtight container and use it for a longer time.
If you want to use cannabutter, simply skip the vegetable oil and cannabis bud and use cannabutter instead.
Apply the sauce on the chicken right before grilling. You can also use the sauce in the serving for extra flavor. You can also marinate the chicken with the sauce and let it sit for a few hours. it will give extra flavor to the grilled chicken
Take away
If you are using cannabis bud or trim, two things are essential. The first is the grinding. You have to grind the cannabis to a fine powder to increase its surface area. And the next important step is the decarboxylation of cannabis. It is an essential part of the instructions as it activates the THC present in the Cannabis plant, the magic ingredient. Make sure you simmer at medium flame, and it never reaches its boiling point. If THC nears its boiling point, it will lose its effectivity, and the effort will go in vain.  


CBD is being used in several recipes. The easiest way to make them is by using CBD isolate. CBD vegetable oil or cannabutter is a great way to infuse CBD, and it is particularly favorable for people who don’t like the taste of unflavoured CBD oil. 
Have you wondered why CBD has become so famous? The ever-increasing popularity of CBD is because of its potential health benefits. It is an excellent solution for pain management, sleep management, anxiety, depression, and reduces inflammatory responses. Now that we know why we need CBD, let’s move to the quick recipe of CBD brownies. 

  • ½ cup vegetable oil (CBD infused)
  • 1 cup of sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 large eggs
  • ¼ teaspoon baking powder
  • ⅓ cup of cocoa powder
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ½ cup flour

To decide the CBD dose, you need to assess your health condition and calculate the quantity of CBD. Make sure it does not exceed 25mg per day. Take 2 cups of vegetable oil and add one gram of CBD isolate to it. Mix it well and use half a cup for this recipe and the rest in any other.

The first step in making brownies is to preheat the oven to 350 F. Now, begin making the batter for brownies. Mix the sugar with the CBD infused vegetable oil and blend it well. Now add the 2 eggs and vanilla extract and blend it again. Now move to the dry ingredients. Add the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, and salt to the oil mixture and stir it until well combined. 
Take a 9 x 9 pan, grease it and pour the mixture into it. Bake for at least 20 minutes and take out the pan. Make sure to let it cool before taking the brownies out of the pan. 

You can cut it into 10 equal pieces. Each piece contains about 24 mg of CB. Each brownie can serve as your daily dose of CBD in a delicious way. 

If you want to add a more flavor to the brownies, add a peanut butter swirl on the top. For this you will need:
  • 1 cup peanut butter
  • 4 tbsp melted butter
  • ½ cup powdered sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • CBD isolate

CBD isolate in the topping is optional. If you want to increase your daily dose of CBD, then add 1 gram of CBD isolate; otherwise, skip it.
Microwave the peanut butter for at least 30 seconds to soften it. Add melted butter, powdered sugar, CBD isolate, and vanilla extract to it. Drizzle the mixture on the top of the brownies and level it with a knife.
Your CBD infused brownies are ready to be served.
