How much time do you really have to rest in this day and age?
Phones are stuck at our fingertips, constantly bombarding us with information as we hurry and clamor. Even in our downtime, we seem to be compulsively reaching for something as our alerts ping and sing and beep. Are we afraid of missing something or getting a bad performance review from a boss?
More than 60 percent of Americans admit that they are stressed or depressed, which is quite an increase from ten years ago. How can we make the most of the little time we have to get away from all this? Why not soak in a warm bubble bath with a delicious CBD bath bomb!
What is CBD Bath Bombs Again?
CBD is an endocannabinoid that occurs naturally in the body’s own endocannabinoid system. The endocannabinoid system controls homeostasis, mood, hormones, appetite and more. Endocannabinoids are neurotransmitters, also known as chemicals, that transmit messages in our body.
The endocannabinoid system does not distinguish between endocannabinoids that occur naturally and those that are ingested. So when we soak in a bath diffused with CBD, we open our pores for more endocannabinoids and give the endocannabinoid system a little boost that it can work with.
