Yes, this is not real rage, rather an exaggeration. It will make you understand that a bath is all you need after a hard working week. We all need some good time, some relaxation with a glass of wine, candles and bath foam. But what makes a great, warm bath even more relaxing? Sure, a bath bomb. You may have seen thousands and thousands of aesthetic pleasing videos on Instagram of colorful fizzy balls, nicely dissolving and making the water all pink and glittery. And if you don’t live under a rock, you may have seen and smelled one.
Bath bombs come in all shapes and sizes – cubes, balls, stars, hearts. They have different color (some of them look like they have been made from real gold). They smell differently – from nice mint or lavender organic scents to strong artificial rosy or pineapple fruity tone to them. We can’t call bath bombs purposeless. They are somewhat enchanting to watch – all bubbling and stuff. They exfoliate our skin, containing the ingredients like sea salt, essential oils, spices and even little flower petals. And, most importantly, they calm and sooth, make us relaxed and rested. But what will make us even more relaxed? Weed bath bombs! And this is not a joke.
What is a cannabis bath bomb?
A bath bomb with cannabis, or a bath bomb with marijuana is the same type of decorative ball of sea salt that you normally put into your bath before relaxing, but it’s a thc-cbd infused bath bomb. Or, what you would call it, weed infused. Hope it doesn’t evoke much confusion. Sure, our society of consumers is rather difficult to impress; we have seen it all. But, seriously, a canna bath bomb?! Is it even safe? Yes, it is completely safe and no, you are not supposed to smoke it afterwards.

We previously detected that you don’t smoke it, right? Neither do you inhale it and get high. This innovative means of alternative cosmetology resemble essential oils of frankincense and sandal tree. They don’t bring you euphoria, sadly or luckily.
