Smell (Irrelevant to effects)

This salt scrub smells just like the juiciest, sweetest grapefruit you’ve ever had as soon as you open the seal on the packet.  We were reminded of the giant Ruby Red Texas grapefruits we grew up with, all sweetness and tang without any lingering bitter tones.  The scent is refreshing and invigorating, perfect for energizing your body and mind.

Consistency

The product comes in a black zipper-sealed pouch (which we like, as it allows you to save any extra scrub for another time).  The scrub itself is coarse in texture, with an oily moisture feel that’s hydrating on the skin. The salt is tinged pink, but not to the point that it will color your bathwater or tub.  Much of the color likely comes from the Himalayan Pink salt used in the blend.

When applied to wet skin, the salt scrub feels pleasantly exfoliant without being too rough.  It’s suitable for sensitive skin, provided you aren’t allergic to grapefruit essential oil. The blend of argan, jojoba, and almond oils helps hydrate skin while sloughing off dead cells, improving circulation and imparting a healthy glow.

Effects (Onset, Duration, Intensity)

We recommend taking your time with this scrub for best results.  Draw yourself a warm bath, and then soak for 5-10 minutes to soften dead skin. When you’re ready, use small amounts (scooping a bit into your fingertips works well) to focus on the parts of your body that need the most attention.

The product works well to remove dead skin and increase blood flow in the skin, but you can also massage it into areas that need localized pain relief (be gentle, and don’t apply to broken skin!).  When you decide you’re done — or the scrub dissolves, whichever comes first — relax and soak for 15-20 minutes, or as long as you like.

We noted a pronounced physical relaxation after scrubbing that increased as we soaked.  The soreness from our earlier run melted away, leaving us feeling mellow and generally good all over.  This feeling lasted for about 3 hours after our bath and made for a refreshing and pain-relievingpick-me-up.

Best used for

We like this salt scrub for two reasons:  first, it soothed and softened our sensitive skin, and second, it helped alleviate muscle and joint pain and soreness.  If you experience chronic pain, are prone to dry skin, or are looking to aid athletic recovery, you might like this salt scrub.

Best used with (Complimentary Product)

This natural CBD-infused salt scrub can help soothe pain all over, but we recommend backing it up with a systemic CBD product for maximum pain relief.  We think that a bowl of organic hemp flowerwould make an excellent natural accompaniment to this scrub, but you could also try a vape product, tincture, or softgel capsule if you prefer.  The soak will provide potent pain relief in the short term, while a systemic product (especially ingestibles like tinctures or softgels) will provide lasting symptom relief.

Value/Price

At $5.00 per 1 oz package, the CBD salt scrub is an affordable way to treat yourself, relieve pain, and relax your body.  The package contains 15 mg of CBD, which works out to a cost per milligram of about $0.33, which is reasonable for a topical product.

Competition/Alternatives

In terms of quality, price, and effectiveness, we feel this CBD salt scrub stands out among its competitors.  Unlike traditional salt soaks, the finer milling of the salt creates a gentle and effective exfoliant that’s sustainable and safe for sensitive skin.  Like all Canna Comforts products, the scrub meets our CBD Buyer’s Guide standards for quality, purity, and potency.
