Set the mood for a romantic Valentine’s Day with homemade THC and CBD bath bombs. These delightful fizzies are a perfect gift and a way to add a touch of relaxation and intimacy for you and your significant other this February the 14th.
Why Use Weed Bath Bombs?
THC and CBD in a bath bomb offer a soothing and holistic bathing experience.
The combination of warm water and the release of cannabinoids may help to relax muscles, calm the mind, and promote a sense of well-being. Bath bombs can be particularly valuable for those seeking relief from stress, body aches, and muscle pain.
Weed Bath Bomb Ingredients
- 50mg THC oil
- 50mg CBD oil
- 1 cup baking soda
- 1/2 cup citric acid
- 1/2 cup Epsom salt
- 1/2 cup cornstarch
- 2.5 tablespoons coconut oil (or carrier oil of your choice)
10-20 drops of essential oils (romantic scents like rose or ylang-ylang)
- Natural food coloring (red or pink for Valentine’s Day)
- Witch hazel or water in a spray bottle
- Bath bomb molds or silicone heart-shaped molds
The oil should be formulated to be skin-safe and designed for topical application. It’s important to use an oil that is properly diluted and mixed with a carrier oil, like coconut or almond oil, to ensure it can be safely absorbed by the skin without causing irritation.
How To Make Weed Bath Bombs
Dry Mixture: Sift the baking soda, citric acid, Epsom salt, and cornstarch into a large bowl to ensure a smooth blend.
Wet Mixture: Combine the THC oil, CBD oil, and carrier oil in a small bowl. Add the essential oils and food coloring until you reach the desired hue.
Combine: Slowly mix the wet ingredients into the dry, stirring continuously. If fizzing occurs, pour more slowly.
Consistency Check: The mixture should stick together when pressed. If it’s too dry, lightly spritz with witch hazel or water.
Molding: Pack the mix tightly into your molds, filling them completely for full heart shapes.
Setting: Allow the bath bombs to set in the molds for a few minutes, then gently remove them to dry on wax paper for 24 hours.
Storage: Store the bath bombs in an airtight container until ready to use or gift.
Do THC & CBD Bath Bombs Get You High?
A common question regarding THC & CBD bath bombs is whether they can induce a high. THC is the psychoactive component of cannabis, which is known for its ability to produce a high when ingested or inhaled. However, when used in a bath bomb and absorbed through the skin, the psychoactive effects are generally not experienced in the same way as with other consumption methods.
The amount of THC in a bath bomb is typically low and designed to provide local relaxation rather than a full-body high. Moreover, the skin acts as a barrier to the bloodstream and while some of the THC may be absorbed, it is unlikely to be enough to produce significant psychoactive effects.
CBD, on the other hand, is non-psychoactive and does not produce a high at all. It is often used for its potential therapeutic properties, such as reducing inflammation and anxiety.
It’s important to note that everyone’s body chemistry is different, and some may be more sensitive to THC’s effects. While you shouldn’t expect the same high as from other methods of THC consumption, if you are concerned about the possibility of any psychoactive effects, you may choose to use a bath bomb with a higher ratio of CBD to THC, or one that is CBD-only.
Remember that these bath bombs are designed to create a relaxing, spa-like experience, promoting calmness and well-being, rather than an intense psychoactive episode. Enjoy the serenity and potential benefits without the worry of an unwanted high, making them a suitable addition to a peaceful Valentine’s Day bath.
