    I've been making a version of this for several years now. I've added infused oil (usually a mix of olive and coconut) with essential oils and also used the mash left over from making the infused oil. If you use the mash, you will need a muslim bag to put the salts in so that the cannabis 'debris' doesn't get all over you and the tub. Just hang it on the spout and let the water run through it into the bath. Be warned; this makes for a very slippery tub and bather. It's fabulous for aches and pains or just relaxing. Can also be used as a foot bath... or for whatever needs a good soak.

    My husband was my first guinea pig for this stuff (and how I know you need a muslim bag for it if you use the mash). He doesn't take baths. Too antsy. So we run the bath and he gets in. I go and do some other housework for a little bit figuring he'll be out in no more than 10 minutes being as antsy as he is. Ten minutes go by... 15.... now it's 20 minutes later and I'm starting to worry. Half hour goes by and I check on him. He's laying back with this shit eating grin on his face saying he's really relaxed but.... and he holds up his hand... "You've got to do something about this green shit." There was pulverized herb stuck in his cuticles and.... everywhere else. Lmao he needed a shower after. And the tub was a mess.

    Another tip; clean the tub right away while it's still warm. Especially if you use coconut oil because it sets up. Scrubbing Bubbles works just fine and is quite easy. If you get it right away. :cool:


    Marijuana Bath Salts: Easy DIY How-To Instructions for Cannabis in the Tub

    If you know how to infuse oil for cooking with cannabis (click here for directions if you don’t), you have the skills (and the product) you need to make delightful medicated marijuana bath salts!

    This citrus scented recipe is both invigorating, due to it’s lemony scent, and relaxing, due to marijuana infused epsom salts. Pour a cup or so into the tub and enjoy! These also make a fabulous homemade gift.

    A Money Saving Infused Topicals Tip
    When infusing oil for making cannabis topicals, you can use the same material you would use for edibles — bud and/or or trimmings. You can also save some bucks by using your leftover already vaped weed AKA duff. Sure a lot of the cannabinoids are gone, but there are still lots left. If making an oil infusion from the toasty vape leftovers, use about twice the amount of cannabis you would normally use when making canna-oil, otherwise the process is the same. Some people like to cook with this oil too. I find it gives me a headache, so I don’t usually bother, but it is great for using when making topicals like these marijuana bath salts.

    Ingredients for making Marijuana Bath Salts

    How To Make Marijuana Bath Salts
    1. Gather you materials. You will need: Epsom salts; an orange and a lemon; cannabis infused olive oil or coconut oit; essential oils: any combination of lemon, orange, lime, and/or bergamot.
    2. Zest the citrus. Use a fine grater or microplaner to remove the zest from the orange and lemon. The zest is just the outer part of the fruit where the color and essential oils are. Adding zest to our marijuana bath salts will give them color and a little additional scent. Stop grating just short of the inner white pith.
    3. Combine ingredients. In a large bowl, combine 4 cups of epsom salts, the zest from the orange and lemon, 1/4 cup cannabis infused oil, and about 20 drops of essential oil. Put on rubber gloves and use your hands to mix well until all ingredients are well combined.
    4. Package it. Store your bath salts in glass jars. Add about 3/4 to 1 cup per bath and enjoy!

    Sounds delightful, Mom. My one question is that just in the last couple of days I read an article, posted by yourself I believe, that contained some info on ppm of THC via topical (that is, absorbed through the skin) vice vaping/smoking/eating and it seemed like the topical had fairly low absorption through the skin. But the article did mention that for spot type treatment (i.e. localized anti-inflammatory effect) it could work well.

    Not sure I read the article correctly, but this also kind of took the wind out of my sails a bit regarding transdermal patches which are being sold here now. I was looking for longer acting effects to get me through the night without having to get up and vape a couple of time and thought the patches might do well....now, not so sure.

    But you have been using these salts, yes? And you can feel the relief?

    For one thing; I would make your own patches. There's no reason to pay the kind of money you will have to pay at a dispensary there.

    Any time you try to absorb through the skin it's not going to get you high; to start with. You are getting mostly CBD and not THC. I make no claim that these salts will totally take away pain. But.... mmj patients that have tried my salts love them and say they get tremendous relief from them. Some of those patients have chronic back problems. I think the combination of the hot water, infused oil and the epsom salts (which help for pain in themselves) help relax and sooth. Whether that alone would last you the whole night I'm not sure.

    My advice for a good night's sleep? Take an infused bath before bed and then take an edible. My bet is it's the best night's sleep you'll have had in a long time. :biggrin:

    Great recipe motg! I'm going to make these soon. Quick question, when you grate the citrus do you freeze them first? What has been your favorite concoction of mixed eo? I only have lemongrass, will that work with lemon and orange zest with salts and cannaoil? Thanks!!!!

    I should probably have stated that my version doesn't use the grated citrus zest. But I can see where it would be a nice addition since both lemons and oranges have oils in the rind.

    No. But they should be fairly fresh or the rind toughens. And as the recipe above states, don't go into the pith (white part).

    It depends on what I want the bath 'to do.' For relaxation I would probably use lavender, peppermint, eucalyptus.... if for pain I would use wintergreen, rosemary, peppermint and eucalyptus. For anxiety I would use lavender, peppermint and bergamot.

    And I would think lemongrass would go well with the lemon and orange... yes. But remember... you are going to smell like whatever you put in it. So make sure you like the scents you put in. :wink:
