PureKana - Midnight Rose CBD Bath Bomb
Highline Wellness - CBD Bath Bomb
Bath bombs have been all the rage in self-care for years, so it was a no-brainer for companies to formulate them with CBD. CBD promotes clear, moisturized skin, plus the well-known anti-inflammatory and anxiety-relieving benefits. And, of course, nothing beats taking a hot bath to unwind and destress. Heat promotes circulation, muscle relaxation, and recovery.
We combed through reader reviews, spoke with experts, and took a few baths ourselves to choose these three CBD Bath Bombs.
Best CBD Bath Bomb
Made with “premium CBD” and special fragrance blends of essential oils (and without artificial dyes or preservatives), these colored bombs are also non-staining. We particularly like the frankincense, lavender, and eucalyptus. All CBDmd products are third party tested.

How To Use a CBD Bath Bomb
We’re embarrassed to admit that when we first heard of these, we thought they were bath “balms.” These bombs do, in fact, explode. Sort of. They fizz…vigorously!
It’s the entire experience that makes CBD bath bombs special. Create the perfect environment for relaxation by lighting a few candles and putting on your favorite chill playlist. Once your tub is full of warm water, drop the bath bomb, and watch it fizz. This sweet anticipation heightens awareness and sensitivity. Then climb in, and leave your troubles to the bubbles.
How does it work?
Perhaps the main reason CBD bath bombs are so popular is because hot water opens up skin pores. The CBD enters through these dilated pores all over the body, and you inhale some with the steam, too. Absorbing CBD through the skin speeds absorption, arguably faster than consuming it orally. This makes them perfect for de-stressing quickly after a long day.
A non-CBD bath bomb is typically composed of various essential oils for scent and baking soda and citric acid for that fizzing effect. CBD bath bombs combine these standard ingredients plus CBD-infused baking soda. Many companies also incorporate Epsom salt for pain relief.
Be aware that CBD can result in lightheadedness, as does hot water. Don’t stand up too quickly after soaking with one of these bath bombs. Take it nice and slow.
