THC is the primary, active ingredient in marijuana and has psychoactive properties, which produces a “high” when ingested. CBD contains little to no traces of THC. Therefore, it does not cause any feelings of euphoria in users. However, you’ll still get many of the same benefits with CBD as you would with THC, such as pain management, improving mood, and alleviating cancer-related symptoms. CBD oil is made by extracting CBD from the hemp plant and diluting it with a carrier oil such as hemp seed oil. Hemp seed oil is free of cannabinoids, thus, the name “carrier.”
What Is CBD?
CBD is the second most abundant chemical compound found in the cannabis plant. Many people, understandably, mix up medical marijuana and CBD. While medical marijuana contains CBD, most of the CBD oils we use today come from the hemp plant, a cousin of the marijuana plant. One of the main differences between marijuana and CBD is the delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) content.
Many of the proposed benefits of CBD are associated with its interaction with the body’s endocannabinoid system (ECS). The ECS works to ensure the body remains in balance by producing chemicals similar to those found in the cannabis plant called endocannabinoids. The ECS and its receptors are found everywhere throughout our bodies, including our nervous system, immune system, bloodstream, and brain cells. It may control our mood, appetite, stress levels, pain, inflammation, and more. When we consume CBD, it is thought to be absorbed by our ECS and transported to different receptors within the body to provide certain benefits.

This enables users to safely use CBD without worrying about being high and disrupting their daily lives.
CBD Bath Bombs
CBD is a non-psychoactive compound found in hemp that has been known to reduce stress and anxiety, relieve muscle and joint pain and even help those who experience trouble sleeping. Together with the hot water of a bath, CBD bath bombs work by absorbing through opened pores which allows the CBD to penetrate the skin throughout the entire body, allowing it to reach the bloodstream faster than topical applications. To elevate your self-care routine, we recommend incorporating CBD bath bombs to your bath time rituals.
From tinctures to topical creams and gummies, the relief found from CBD can come in many forms, but perhaps the most relaxing method is the CBD Bath Bomb. Bath bombs are known for their fizzy bubbles and colors but CBD bath bombs provide so much more than just a fun, spa-like experience, they provide relief. They’re a unique combination of baking soda, citric acid, Epsom salts and additives such as essential oils and of course their star ingredient, CBD.
