With the holiday season in full swing, it’s time to start figuring out gifts for those hard-to-shop-for friends and relatives. But fear not—there’s one gift that can easily be adapted to all the important people in your life: CBD oil. Strange though it may sound, anyone who’s experienced CBD’s benefits can vouch for it as a brilliant gift idea.
What is CBD?
Before you consider buying CBD as a gift, it’s helpful to know a little bit about what it is and why it works. CBD simply stands for cannabidiol, one of the 113+ naturally occurring compounds in hemp plants that acts on the endocannabinoid system. The endocannabinoid system is a large network of receptors that exist throughout the body. These receptors react to molecules known as cannabinoids, which are both produced naturally and found in hemp plant. CBD is one such cannabinoid.
The endocannabinoid system is important because it influences the functionality of key systems throughout the body. CBD binds to certain receptors in the system that regulate these responses, which is why it is so popular for its wellness benefits.
It’s important to briefly note that while CBD is derived from hemp plants (a member of the cannabis family), it is not psychoactive. Simply put, CBD won’t get you high. This is because CBD oil is derived from hemp plants, which legally contain less than 0.3% of THC—the molecule responsible for marijuana’s psychoactive effects.
Why Gift CBD?
There’s no doubt that gifting CBD products is a bit unconventional. Your recipient may not be even familiar with CBD, or maybe you aren’t yourself. But you shouldn’t let any of that stop you! Here are our top three reasons why CBD oil should be at the top of your shopping list.
1. It makes you feel good.
By gifting CBD oil, you’re actually gifting the huge range of health and wellness benefits that come along with consumption of CBD. While CBD oil is not generally approved to treat medical conditions, users report a huge range of benefits from its use.
When you give CBD, you give the opportunity to get healthier and feel better without the side effects of other offerings. Talk about the gift that keeps on giving!
2. It’s unique.
Be the person to first introduce CBD to your loved ones! The gift of a CBD product is sure to stand out as not only memorable but also extremely useful.
3. There’s a product for everyone.
The great thing about CBD is that it comes in many forms. The numerous delivery methods make it convenient for users, but they also make holiday shopping a breeze since there’s something to suit every taste.
Choosing a CBD Gift
For the Foodie
While CBD is often consumed as an oil, vaped, or applied topically, it can also be baked into foods! CBDelicious is the perfect gift for all the master chefs in your life. Ninety-nine-percent pure, CBDelicious contains no THC and is derived from non-GMO, pesticide-free hemp. And because it’s powdered, CBDelicious can be incorporated into any recipe with absolute ease. If you’re lucky, your foodie friend might even share the results of their experimenting with you.
For the Sweet Tooth
CBD-infused gummy bears? Yes, please! By far the tastiest product here, these gummies are packed with both fruity flavor and the soothing essence of pure CBD. Gummies are also extremely approachable for those who may hesitate to incorporate a new health product into their routine.
For the Health Nut
Technically, any of the options here are great for a health-conscious friend seeing as they all benefit health. Still, for those who might shy away from candies or baking brownies, you can’t go wrong with a fresh isolate or full-spectrum tincture (the preferred method for consuming CBD oils.)
For the Always On-the-Go
Getting a dose of CBD doesn’t have to be a chore. CBD-infused softgels or capsules are the perfect choice for the busiest people in your life—and they probably need the relaxation the most! Available in both isolate and full-spectrum and in a variety of doses, capsules and gels are flexible and convenient enough to fit into anyone’s day.
For the Pet Lover
Believe it or not, CBD isn’t just for humans. Our furry friends have endocannabinoid systems too, so special tinctures can allow pets to experience the calming benefits of CBD. To go the extra mile for your favorite crazy cat lady or dog lover, be sure to get them their own matching tincture as well.
For the Beauty-Obsessed
Even frequent CBD-users may be surprised to learn that CBD can be applied topically. CBD is said to have anti-aging properties when applied to the skin, making it a great alternative for less natural skincare products. If you know someone who adheres religiously to their skincare routine, they’re sure to love a CBDol topical salve.
For the Trendy
We all have that friend who no longer leaves the house without their vape pen. For them, consider something from our extensive line of vape products. Disposable vape pens are a tasty, convenient way to experience CBD for the first time. Our 200 mg disposable pens come in a range of delicious flavors such as grape and strawberry lemonade. There are even variety packs to satisfy the pickiest of tastes. Alternatively, treat them to a shiny new stylus vape pen or a flavored e-liquid to use in their own device.
