Do CBD Bath Bombs Work for Pain?

CBD bath bombs are a great solution to help those suffering from pain gain some relief. Epsom salt has been used for hundreds of years to help the body expel toxins from the skin. It also helps deliver relief from sore muscles, helps to regulate mood and provides overall wellness support. Partnered with CBD, the mutual benefits are only enhanced. And those who source organically and add only natural ingredients like ALKI Body, provide an even more healthful experience. While the Epson salt allows for toxins to flow out, the CBD compounds and essential oils can then flow into the skin. And with highly effective bath bombs of 200mg each, the curative effects are enhanced.

To be clear, relief from pain is not the same as getting high, as CBD bath bombs contain the non-psychoactive cannabis compounds. But what you can enjoy is incredible relief that studies have shown CBD can provide, as well as better sleep and anxiety relief. Since high quality CBD can be absorbed quickly through the open pores of your skin, a bath can deliver a wonderful sense of relief to your entire body.

Oftentimes, pain is associated with inflammation. This happens because your body works to repair an injury or stressed area by secreting fluids to swell, protect and begin healing. This increased blood flow can result in redness, warmth and feeling of pain. 

The good news is that many CBD studies show that CBD is effective in helping to reduce inflammation, and thus the pain associated with it. That’s why a CBD bath bomb may be a wonderful pain relief solution for you. And as you feel less pain, your mood and feeling of relief will naturally increase as well. The stress from pain can wear down your immune system, so there are also many indirect beneficial effects you can enjoy as well.

In addition to epsom salt, the natural ingredients in the Alki Body CBD bath bombs include corn starch, sodium bicarbonate, citric acid (where applicable), sunflower oil, water, aromatherapy oils (where applicable) and of course, organic hemp-derived cannabidiol (CBD).

Ingredient Information

Sodium Bicarbonate & Citric Acid: Otherwise known as baking soda and Vitamin C. These two ingredients combined create the “fizzy” effect of a bath bomb.

Epsom Salt: Epsom salt baths can help soften rough or dry skin and can exfoliate dead skin cells. It also aids in reducing soreness & pain.

Corn Starch: Corn starch manages the fizzing reaction of the ingredients; so if you drop your bath bomb in the water, it will not “explode”!

Sunflower Oil: Sunflower oil is a non-comedogenic carrier oil which is highly absorbent. In short: sunflower oil won’t clog your pores. Additionally, it is non-irritating for most people and can be used on all skin types.

Water: What scientists refer to as H20.

Organic Hemp-Derived Cannabidiol (CBD): CBD is a naturally occurring & non-intoxicating cannabinoid (chemical compound) found in both hemp and cannabis plants.

Aromatherapy Oils: Aromatherapy is simply the combination of essential oils for therapeutic benefit. When inhaled, the molecules in essential oils work their way from the olfactory nerves directly to the brain and can positively impact the amygdala, which is the emotional center of the brain.

Sodium Lauryl Sulfoacetate (SLSA): SLSa is derived from coconut and palm oils. SLSa is safe and skin-friendly.

Mica Powder: The biggest benefit of mica is its ability to create a natural shimmery finish, since it can be milled to a fine powder. It is naturally produced and safe to use on almost all skin types.

Polysorbate 80: A vegetable-sourced emulsifier that is skin-safe. Polysorbate 80 helps ingredients mix throughout the water instead of separating, which will make your bath bomb experience even better!
