Yo, what’s up my fellow weed enthusiasts? You ever heard of cannabis bath salts? They’re like the bomb, man. Not only can they help with minor aches and pains, but they’re also a great way to relax after a long day. And guess what? You can make your own at home for way cheaper than buying them pre-made.
First things first, you gotta make some cannabis oil. Here’s what you need:
– 15-30 grams of dried trim or buds
– 500 ml of coconut oil
Preheat your oven to 115°C and grind up your herb to a medium-fine consistency. Spread it out on a baking sheet and bake it for 30 minutes. Then, combine the roasted herb and coconut oil in a pot and heat it up on low for about an hour, stirring occasionally. Strain the mixture through cheesecloth into a glass jar to remove as much plant material as possible.
Now that you’ve got your cannabis oil, it’s time to make the bath salts. Here’s what you need:
– Epsom salts
– Cannabis oil
– Essential oils (optional)
Add 700 grams of epsom salts to a glass jar and stir in 14 grams of cannabis oil. Repeat until the salts are coated evenly but not wet. If you want, add a few drops of essential oils like lavender or peppermint to change up the fragrance. Let the mixture settle for an hour or two before using. When you’re ready to soak, use 170-350 grams per bath and soak for at least 20 minutes to get the full benefits.
But what can weed-infused bath salts treat, you ask? Well, once the cannabinoids are absorbed into your skin, they influence the CB2 receptors and stimulate the endocannabinoid system to offer real health benefits. Soaking in warm water filled with cannabis bath salts can relax your mind and body, reduce stress levels, relieve pain, reduce inflammation for allergies or arthritis, hydrate your skin, ease menstrual cramps and headaches, and even make you look younger by increasing blood flow!
Now don’t go thinking that these bath salts will get you high or cause you to fail a drug test. If you only use bath salts infused with CBD, there’s no way you’ll get high or fail a drug test since THC is required for that. Even if you use THC-based bath salts, you still won’t get high because the oils won’t penetrate deep enough into your skin to hit your bloodstream (and that’s where THC needs to go in order for you to feel high). However, there have been no reports of failed drug tests due to topical cannabis products like bath salts except for high-THC transdermal patches which are designed to deliver medication through the skin directly into the bloodstream over long periods of time. So if you’re worried about passing a drug test for any reason, don’t use any cannabis products at all.
But yo, one more thing before you go soak in that tub of weed-infused goodness – be careful! These bath salts contain oils that can make your tub super slippery so watch out for slip-and-fall injuries, man. Stay safe and enjoy your relaxation time!
