You don't need to be a stoner to appreciate the gift that keeps on giving. And yes, even your God-fearing grandparents will love these gifts. We're talking about CBD.
2020 has taught us a lot: (1) life is hard and very stressful, and (2) it taught us to appreciate our health and wellness and not take life for granted. Thanks to the expansiveness of the CBD scene and culture, there really is a gift for the whole family - skeptics included.
CBD is short for cannabidiol, and is an active ingredient derived from the cannabis plant. It offers a wide array of health benefits including anti-inflammatory properties and, what we could all use, stress relief. All of this without the mind-altering effects from its cousin, THC. But enough about the benefits; if you're reading this you probably already know what CBD is capable of.
There are hundreds of different CBD infused products, for hundreds of different uses. Creams and salves for muscle soreness, oils and tinctures for stress relief and sleep, gummies and snacks for you and your furry friends. Below you'll find some fantastic CBD gift ideas for your friends and family. Finish 2020 on a high note and make 2021 a healthier, stress-free year. Enjoy!
Please also keep in mind that we are not financially associated with any of these brands, and we're simply promoting them because we love their products!
