The holidays are here! If you are getting a little stressed about what gifts to get for your friends and family, this year might be the perfect time to consider Cannabidiol (CBD).
CBD products are fantastic gifts and here is why: they offer great relief for a number of health ailments, provide a sense of mental calm and balance, and overall help improve the health and wellness of those who use CBD properly. Giving the gift of CBD means you are not only giving a quality gift to someone special, you are directly improving their quality of life in a very special way. Below are a few pointers on what CBD is, what products to consider, and some specific health benefits CBD offers.
What is CBD?
CBD is simply a compound harvested from cannabis plants. Unlike THC-related products (an entirely separate compound commonly associated with “smoking weed”), CBD does not produce a “high” effect, is not addictive, and is federally legal to keep and use (but please check the specific laws for your state before buying or giving away CBD). CBD is primarily used as a tool for bringing on a sense of calm and relaxation, but as you will see below, the benefits reach far beyond just that.
What CBD products make the best gifts?
There are many wonderful CBD-related products to choose from, but oils, edibles, and topical items are especially fantastic for the newly-initiated CBD users as well as the more experienced ones. What makes oils a particularly good gift idea is that they are very easy to use and can be consumed in a variety of ways and the dosage is very easy to control. They can be mixed into favorite foods, beverages, lotions, and shampoo, or consumed directly. Topicals are great gifts for those experiencing certain skin conditions such as eczema, dry skin, or wrinkles or for those just looking for a high quality, highly effective skincare product. Edibles are fun gifts because they’re easy to share, easy to use, and are quite delicious!

The benefits of using CBD
As mentioned above, CBD offers significant medical benefits when used properly and responsibly. It can assist with everything from chronic soreness and pain, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, sports recovery, epilepsy, insomnia, anxiety, stress, headaches, dry skin, and more.
Since 2018 when CBD became federally legal to produce, sell, and use, it has exploded in popularity and more people across the country continue to incorporate it into their daily health regimens. Although CBD has been used for centuries around the globe, its use has only recently experienced a rediscovery and thankfully, its benefits are being recognized by a greater percentage of the population every year. In fact, with the help of modern science and research, we are discovering more benefits of CBD than our ancestors did, and it is exciting to think about the possibilities of what new things we will learn about it in the future.
