Some of you reading this blog probably remember when Mary Jane (marijuana ), Pot was illegal. People smoked weed mainly to get high. Who knew about CBD oil or any of the other active cannabinoids in cannabis (marijuana). Times are changing very rapidly with the legalization of medical cannabis across the nation and recreational cannabis legal in some states including California.
I never heard of CBD oil until recently. Let’s talk a little about what CBD oil is.
CBD is a Cannabidiol, the non-psychotropic active ingredient in cannabis. Cannabis has at least 113 active cannabinoids. The “high” comes from tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC in cannabis. CBD is legal and you don’t need a medical marijuana card to buy it. You can buy it online in many forms. In fact there are many medicinal qualities to CBD. CBD treats anxiety, it helps reduce pain and inflammation, even PMS. It’s even being used to treat multiple sclerosis, cancer and fibromyalgia. Works to help ease PMS and even depression. There are new studies being done on the many medicinal qualities of CBD. Pure CBD oil also helps you to come down from too much THC.
CBD is rapidly becoming a buzz word in the beauty and health industry. Many new products infused with CBD oil are entering the market, including skin care products, sun blocks, tinctures, bath oils, bubble bath, salves to name a few.
I’ve become very curious about CBD oil and its medicinal effects especially for my plastic surgery clients. I recently had the opportunity to try a hand-made CBD infused bath bomb!
I met with the Owner of So Fizzed Up, Meli Bowman, to try one of her hand-made CBD Bath Bombs.
I wanted to experience bathing in CBD oil, feeling its therapeutic and calming effect. Plus it sounded like fun!! I choose the lemon bath bomb. Each bath bomb is decorated with little colorful stones. It’s a cute presentation.
I wanted to experience the medicinal effects after a hard Yoga class. I unwrapped the bomb, it started to crumble so I immediately put it into the tub water. I would recommend unwrapping it above your tub or under running water. (more…)
