Cannabis product review: Om Edibles Epsom Salt Soak

Om Edibles has a slew of top-shelf products, but those looking for deep relaxation without the “high” need only turn to Om Edibles Epsom Salt Soak. This formulation receives High Times Cannabis Cup and Emerald Cup honors. It’s in a class of its own, very different from the traditional topical and an entirely different experience from an edible. Great for dermatological issues, bathers will get a magnesium boost transdermally, which pulls toxins from the skin and colon, and soothes sore muscles.

Cannabis topicals are absorbed through the skin, but it isn’t until I took a bath in cannabinoid-infused Epsom salts that I realized how interconnected our bodies’ endocannabinoid systems are. Hydrotherapy and sun-grown, full-flower cannabis-infused bath salts has a total body effect.

The soak is a great option for people in need of some TLC. Because the salt requires a bath, or at least partial submerging, there’s no skipping the self-care aspect of this remedy. What I liked about these salts was that the potent smell of lavender enticed me to change my evening plans and slow way down. And of course, they’re complimentary to other medical remedies you may be used to, but there’s a nice anti-anxiety effect for the parasympathetic nervous system built right into the method of delivery with these salts. If you’re in pain and suffering from a loop of depression and/or anxiety, I can’t recommend this product highly enough for its supportive emotional effects.

These salts are available in lemon ginger eucalyptus, athletic, fragrance free, rose geranium, and lavender.

The wrap: Perfect for the “canna-curious” and first-time users. It’s also ideal for people suffering from anxiety, depression and is wonderful for people who suffer from insomnia and want to sleep like a baby.
