In this modern day and age, how much time do you really get to recoup?
Iphones are glued to our fingertips, constantly bombarding us with stigma, as we hustle and clamor about. Even in sacred downtime, we seem to be compulsively reaching for something as our notifications ping and sing and beep. Are we afraid to miss out or receive a bad performance review from a boss?
More than 60 percent of Americans admit that they’re stressed out or depressed, which is quite a rise from a decade ago. How can we make the most out of the little time we pry ourselves away from it all? Why not soak in a warm bubbly bath with a delicious CBD bath bomb!

What is CBD Again?
CBD is an endocannabinoid, which naturally occurs in our body’s endocannabinoid system. The endocannabinoid system controls homeostasis, mood, hormones, appetite and more. Endocannabinoids are neurotransmitters, aka chemicals that transmit messages throughout our bodies.
The endocannabinoid system doesn’t differentiate between endocannabinoids that naturally occur and those that are ingested. Therefore, when we soak in a bath diffused with CBD, we’re opening our pores to more endocannabinoids, thus giving the endocannabinoid system a bit of a boost to work with.
