Both of these things have helped me unwind in the way a New Yorker desperately needs. So, when a friend told me that she had gotten high from soaking in a THC-infused bath bomb, my ears perked up. I figured if I could combine two of the things I treasure the most, my quality of life would soar. Needless to say, I hopped on that. Faster than you can say one, two, three and I was soaking in my tub with Kush Queen's CBD & Delta-8 THC's bath bomb fizzling around me. But before I get more into it, let me explain exactly what Delta-8 is, for those who don't know. Delta-8 is THC, but doesn't get you stoned. It's like "light" weed high, if you will. But, as we previously reported, it has more of a punch than your go-to CBD gummy. If you ask me, that sounds like the ideal ingredient to have in a bath bomb, especially if you have to do your skincare routine and a load of laundry after. Kush Queen's site explains that the reason users can feel the effects of Delta-8 in this form is that our skin is the body's largest organ and, as such, it's a powerful tool for absorbing cannabinoids and balancing your endocannabinoid system. The brand suggests soaking in the tub for at least 20 minutes to feel its effects.

My mind felt like I had had two glasses of red wine — not tipsy, but less uptight and happier.

So far, I've tried the Sleep and Relax ones and have been very happy with both. I work out about four times a week, so aside from loving the Delta-8 aspect, my sore muscles really appreciate the CBD in the formula as well.
