All About Adding CBD To Your Shower

A nice warm shower or bath can be just the thing you need to relax at the end of a long day. Whether you are feeling mental or physical strain, taking the time to lather up and wash off is a great way to decompress. But if you don’t find bathing to be a relaxing experience already, then adding some CBD products to your routine may help. So which CBD products should you consider when winding down at the end of the day with a hot bath? Read on to see which products might help you achieve a deep sense of relaxation and relief.

How Can CBD Help Your Skin?

CBD works with the body in different ways, depending on how it is taken or applied. When ingested orally, the CBD enters your bloodstream, is processed by your liver, and interacts with your body’s endocannabinoid system. This system controls a variety of functions within the body, and CBD is believed to interact with the cannabinoid receptors found within this system. The effects people feel from CBD are derived from this interaction with the receptors in your body. Some users have found that when CBD is taken in this fashion, it can relieve the symptoms of anxiety, insomnia, chronic pain, and much more depending on the person.

However, CBD works a little differently when applied to your skin. Instead of entering your bloodstream, CBD instead interacts with the receptors found in your skin cells and provides topical relief. When used in this fashion, CBD can work as an anti-inflammatory for your skin. Many users have found the CBD topicals have aided them in controlling the symptoms related to common skin conditions including inflammatory acne, psoriasis, and scrapes or burns. It also works alongside other topical ingredients to moisturize and promote additional healing. The effects of a CBD topical will remain centered in the area where you applied it, so topicals are intended to be used on a small, specific area of the body.

In order to determine the potential benefits of a CBD topical though, the label should go through careful inspection. Most CBD in the United States is derived from hemp plants, since the cultivation of this plant was legalized in the 2018 Farm Bill. Be sure to take a look into where and how the hemp was grown though since it is a plant that acts as a natural bio-accumulator, and can soak up toxins or other contaminants from the soil. You’ll also want to take a look at a third-party laboratory analysis of the product to know exactly how much CBD is included in the topical. Any responsible manufacturer will be able to provide this information since it provides consumers peace of mind in a largely unregulated industry.

CBD Shower Products to Consider

There are many beauty products that are now incorporating the benefits of CBD extract. However, not all CBD skincare products are created or marketed the same. Be sure to avoid any skincare products that contain “hemp seed oil”, since they will most likely not contain any CBD extract and not provide the potential effects you are seeking. The best products to look for are those that contain full-spectrum CBD extract, or hemp-derived CBD isolates with all-natural ingredients. Thankfully, there are a lot of CBD products that fit this search requirement. Here are some suggestions of CBD topicals to add to your shower:

CBD Soap and Shower Gel

If you’re looking to apply CBD to your entire body after a tough full-body workout then CBD soap or shower gel might be perfect. It’s easy to lather up and allow the CBD a moment to sink into your skin. Some shower gels, such as the CBD shower gel made by Kush Queen, also have the added benefit of being vegan and made with organic ingredients, which aligns with an all-natural beauty routine.

CBD Shampoo and Conditioner

If your scalp tends to be on the drier side, then a CBD shampoo or conditioner could provide the hydrating results you’ve been looking for, without unnatural chemicals. CBD can have a hydrating effect when applied to the skin, and allowing it to sink into your scalp could provide itch relief. The CBD Shampoo made by HempMeds is also made with shea butter, argan oil, and goji berry to provide added hydrating benefits. And HempMeds also makes a CBD conditioner that pairs perfectly with the shampoo. It is made with shea butter, argan oil, and green tea for an added boost of anti-inflammatory action.

CBD Bath Bombs and Soaking Salts

If you would rather soak than shower, there are a few CBD products made just for you. Green Roads creates a relaxing hemp-derived CBD bath bomb two-pack. One is intended to provide a sense of “Calm” with chamomile included,  while the other is named “Peace” and has lavender mixed in. But both contain enough CBD to provide full-body relief.

CBD Lotion and Body Oil

If you’re still aching for the relief of CBD after your shower or bath, then you can follow up your wash with a CBD lotion or body oil. Empower makes a hemp-derived CBD topical oil that is easy to spread across your whole body to allow the effects of CBD to soak in further. They also mixed in lavender, bergamot, and wintergreen oils for an added boost of relaxation.

You can step your relaxation game up with a hint of CBD in your shower routine. CBD topicals and beauty products are a great way to add a bit of CBD to your daily routines so that you can experience daily relief. Try a few out and see which one is the best fit for you!
