Still searching for the perfect gifts for friends and family? Don’t stress. Give them CBD—the gift of wellness that keeps on giving long after the holidays end. Cannabidiol is a natural, organic cannabis compound that won’t get you high, but it will keep you calm, focused, pain-free, and well-rested throughout the busy holiday season and beyond.
The gift of peace of mind and body is hard to top! Plus, taking a consistent daily dose of CBD now helps to jumpstart a much happier, healthier new year.
Those unfamiliar with hemp CBD might be reluctant to try it since it comes from the cannabis plant. While marijuana contains high levels of THC (5-30%), hemp CBD contains only 0.3% THC or less—not enough to get stoned.
How Does CBD Work?
Recent studies suggest CBD reduces stress, muscle and joint soreness, and insomnia, while increasing concentration, energy level, and positivity. Sounds too good to be true, right?
It’s true! CBD enhances the endocannabinoid system, which regulates most of our vital bodily functions.
In other words, cannabidiol helps the endocannabinoid system work more efficiently, which positively impacts all the essential functions below:
CBD interacts with the many cell receptors of the endocannabinoid system, which is why this single cannabinoid can alleviate so many unrelated symptoms. Powerful stuff!
Now, about that holiday shopping list. Which CBD products will you choose for friends and family?
How to Choose the Right CBD Gift
Full-Spectrum and Broad-Spectrum CBD Tinctures
Whether you choose a full-spectrum (0.3% THC) or a broad-spectrum (no THC) CBD tincture, both are popular gift choices for powerful endocannabinoid system support.
When taken sublingually (under the tongue), cannabidiol tinctures immediately absorb into the bloodstream, delivering quick relief within 15 minutes that lasts for four or more hours.
CBD oil can be added to coffee, tea, smoothies, baked goods, dips, sauces, anything you like for quick, delicious relief.
Consider CBD tinctures for those who likes to eat, drink, and be merry with a little help from healing cannabidiol.
CBD Gummies and Softgels
Unlike tinctures, softgels and gummies must digest and metabolize in the liver, which takes about 45 minutes to two hours to feel the healing benefits. Not as quick as tinctures, but well worth the wait!
Gummies and softgels are great gifts since they are:
Convenient: the dose is pre-measured
Discreet: no unwanted attention
Portable: no spillage or breakage worries
Delicious: gummies are a yummy way to experience CBD relief
Consider CBD softgels and gummies for those who love convenience and candy.
Topicals such as salves and lotions are popular cannabidiol gift options since they are quickly absorbed into the skin to deliver fast relief to localized areas. CBD topicals aren’t permeable enough to reach the bloodstream, but since no digestion is involved, they provide almost-instant, long-lasting relief to sore muscles and joints.
Reduce soreness after a good workout
Alleviate pain and inflammation
Minimize muscle and joint discomfort
Consider CBD topicals for anyone who’s active, athletic, arthritic, or just plain achy.
CBD Bath Bombs
Bath bombs are da bomb for instant relaxation. CBD bath bombs are the perfect gift to soothe the body and soul with feel-good healing. Simply drop one in the bath, soak, and emerge feeling ahhhhh-mazing.
Consider CBD bath bombs for EVERYONE!
Don’t Forget Your Pet!
The doggos deserve some CBD love, too! Treat your best friend to beefy CBD Dog Chews and olive oil Pet Tincture to keep their tails wagging. Cannabidiol delivers the same health benefits for pets as it does for people.
Here’s how CBD helps your dog stay happy and healthy:
Reduces anxiety (vet visits, travel, kennel, groomer)
Alleviates pain and inflammation
Promotes healthy skin
Consider CBD pet products for ALL DOGS!
Now, check your list, pick your products, place your order, and relax, knowing everyone will love the gift of wellness.
