Can I take a bath in CBD oil? I know you think I’m joking. You think I’m being sarcastic. Maybe you even think I’m just plain full of shit … but I swear to you, I’m as serious as the day is long (more on that in a minute).
For years, heck centuries, people have been soaking their tired bodies in hot baths … in ice baths … in mud baths … in epsom salt … in whatever the reigning wisdom tells them they need to relieve their aching joints, sore muscles, etc., etc., etc. So again I ask, if CBD oil is so good, can I take a bath in it? I mean why aren’t there CBD bathhouses popping up all over the country. Or at the very least in Colorado and Oregon?? I mean right?
And don’t tell me it’s because oil sinks into the body. I get that. I mean isn’t that the whole point? So I say let it sink in … let it do what it’s supposed to do and then some. Oh wait, it’s the cost?? Too expensive to have gallons and gallons of it sitting around in a tub. Maybe. But … then there’s this … now don’t go all “ewww that’s soooo gross” on me here, but what if there was a way to share the oil baths? There are communal baths all over the world where people share a lot more than just tranquility and a little CBD … so what if there was a way to share the tub without sharing everything in the tub?
In all truthfullness, I’ve yet to use CBD oil but I know a lot of people who swear by it. And at the rate I’m going one of three things is going to happen:
- Either I shrivel away like a slug covered in salt,
- I become the reincarnation of the Bionic Woman (what with all the surgeries I’ve had lately),
- Or I figure out a way to make CBD oil baths a thing and praise the Gods for the goodness of cannabis.
Believe it or not … really … not once. Just never appealed to me. But soaking in a tub of warm oil with strangers … well, why not. You only live once (as far as I know) and if that’s what it takes to relieve some of the pain, then I’m all for it. Hope I get to choose my tubmates ;)
BUT. I’ve never smoked pot
How about you? You ever use CBD oil? Would you take a soak with others if you knew it would relieve your aching body? READ MORE about my thoughts in the big W. (That’s W. E. E. D.)
