A great place to start this article is to address one important word in the title – science. The most important thing to consider about the science of CBD is that it is new. Prohibition on the consumption of any cannabis-derived product was in place for decades and this has put a damper on research. It is only just now that many studies are being conducted, many of which focus on the beneficial properties of CBD for treating pain, anxiety as well as other more specific psychosomatic conditions such as narcolepsy. Once again, too all our readers, this science has not been proven and studies are underway.
The Secrets of the EDS
Regardless of what the latest white paper written in super tiny print has concluded, we are super excited about CBD bath bombs! To understand what is happening when you hop into a warm, bubbly CBD bath, we need to talk about the Endocannabinoid System (EBS) and how it relates to CBD. The EBS is a biological network in our body that delivers neurotransmitters that bind to cannabinoid receptors. It is largely responsible for relegating many physiological phenomena in the human body such as pain, appetite, and stress. When you use a CBD product you are stimulating the EBS with cannabinoids in CBD.
How Does CBD Get to the EDS?
The EDS has receptors in several areas of the body. When CBD is consumed sublingually (under the tongue) it can enter the EDS through the bloodstream. When you dissolve a CBD bath bomb you are mixing CBD with water which will then be in contact with your skin. Compared to taking CBD under the tongue, when CBD is used topically on the skin it will not enter the bloodstream but will concentrate on the CBD receptors located on the skin and its effects will be localized to those areas.
Important things to Watch Out For
CBD is so new on the marketplace and regulation has had trouble keeping up with the rapid expansion of products which means that there is a bit of extra responsibility placed on the consumer to ensure safe consumption. The most important factor to consider with CBD products is the brand you are giving your business to. At Santtam CBD Online we take great care in vetting brands to make sure that everything on our website is at the utmost highest quality. Make sure to do a quick check of the brand’s website and read some reviews online.
With any skincare product, you need to make sure about all of the ingredients. Your CBD bath bomb will always contain other substances than CBD and you should take a look to make sure none of those substances are things that will irritate your skin. Finally, we would like to draw attention to that first paragraph and issue a cautionary warning against products that may be making false claims. If the CBD bath bomb you are considering promises to make you look 10 years younger or add 20 yards to your drive, that might not be the type of brand you should be using…
