Spa Day In Just A Couple Scoops
These bath salts transported me to a spa state of mind and then kept me there all night.
I waited until I visited my folks’ place on the 4th of July before indulging in a bathtime ritual with Green Revolution’s Body Buzz cannabis-infused bath salts. The reason why is that they have a gorgeous clawfoot bathtub and live in a small retirement community near a lake that makes me feel like I’m visiting a resort. To enjoy the full effect of this bath product, I figured it was best to pick the right environment, and my shower-tub combo wasn’t exactly giving off the same relaxing atmosphere.
“The aroma of eucalyptus and lavender filled the bathroom and transported me to my own private cannabis spa.”
I had spent most of the day outside with my family swimming in the community pool and then the lake. The weather in Central Washington is a far cry from the mild temperatures and rain of my current home in Seattle, so by the time I came inside I was drained from hours spent in the sun. I already felt tired and hot, and a bath wasn’t necessarily the best idea considering that I was expected at a neighborhood party an hour later. But this would be my only chance to enjoy the bath salts, so I drew a bath and poured a little more than the serving size of two tablespoons because I was on vacation and feeling decadent.
The bath salts had 100mg of THC and 40mg of CBD per package, but it didn’t give off a skunky smell. Instead, the aroma of eucalyptus and lavender filled the bathroom and transported me to my own private cannabis spa. Lavender is a perfect choice for these salts, since it contains the terpene linalool, which is what gives lavender its relaxing, therapeutic benefits. Green Revolution created standardized profiles for their products they call Terpene Love Cannabinoids, or TLC, which means that they have precise and regulated blends of THC, CBD, and terpenes. By combining THC and CBD with linalool, they have basically ensured their bath salts will deliver on the promised pain relief and soothing feelings promised on the packaging. Body Buzz contained epsom salts as well, which are already great for aches and pains, so this simply took them to the next level.
Soon after stepping into the tub, my mind started wandering between positive memories of the day and other happy thoughts. I listened to country music while I soaked (I was away from the city so I basically had to). The body high didn’t feel as pleasant, but that was partly due to my parents’ freezing home. They blasted the AC to combat the 90-degree weather outside, which unfortunately meant I was covered in goosebumps despite being submerged in hot water.
“The long-lasting relaxed feelings carried me through the barbecue and silly group party games.”
I couldn’t stay in the tub for nearly as long as I wanted, but that may have been for the best. It was so relaxing that it was almost debilitating. The high didn’t fully hit me until I stepped out of the bath, went to the guest bedroom, and raised my body temperature under a blanket. My body became numb and my eyelids droopy. Clearly these bath salts were meant for the end of the day, when you have time to light candles and really soak it up. I was somewhere between there and a quick bath before going back out. My bath mode was off, so the high didn’t work as well as it could have.
All of that said, I can’t wait to try these Body Buzz bath salts again because they certainly deliver on all the chill promises. After my bath, I dozed off momentarily before waking back up to get ready and rush out the door to the party. Thankfully, the long-lasting relaxed feelings carried me through the barbecue and silly group party games. These bath salts pack a punch, and I for one am so glad there are products like it that can bring the perfect zen spa experience right to my own bathtub.
