Sesh and soak: Cannabis-infused skin products for the ultimate bath experience
If you’re looking for the ultimate in relaxation and pampering, cannbis-infused bath products are a worthy option. With plenty of choices from creams and lotions to bath bombs and salts, there’s something to please nearly everyone.
Keep in mind that topical products such as those applied in the bath will be absorbed differently than cannabis consumed orally or by smoking. You won’t experience a heady-high like inhaled or ingested cannabis. However, you should notice softer skin and soothed muscles.
Infused bath products can contain THC, CBD, or both, with different cannabinoids producing different effects. Dosages might sound much higher than other cannabis products, but that’s because it’s believed much less is directly absorbed topically.
Here are 8 infused products to elevate your bath time experience.

Sesh & soak—great strains for bathtime
The OG stoner bath involves simply sparking one up while enjoying a soak, and these strains are perfect for relaxing tense muscles and instilling an overall sense of calm and well-being.
Simply draw yourself a relaxing soak and light up your favourite strain. Close the door and hotbox your bathroom, if you please, or simply enjoy your smoke while relaxing in the tub.
Several Leafly fans said anything with garlic in the strain was especially helpful for unwinding tight muscles, so we suggest Garlic Cookies as a bath time strain. The indica-leaning hybrid has high THC levels, with limonene as the dominant terpene.
Another strain perfect for this time is Stardawg aka Stardog, thanks to its stress-, fatigue-, and anxiety-busting effects.
Finally, we also recommend something high in the terpene linalool, the same found in stress-relieving lavender. Dark Matter fits the bill with moderate THC levels. It’s also rich in sedating myrcene, and is indica dominant.
