For many of us, the holiday season tends to become less of an occasion to celebrate with friends and family, and more of a time to stress about everything from decorations to gift ideas. Even if you’re one of those people who have everything bought and wrapped before Halloween, you likely still know someone who struggles to avoid the holiday blues—and for them, we’ve got you covered.
Whether your gifting game is strong or you’re struggling not to go full gladiator on Black Friday, giving the gift of CBD is always a good decision. It’s not just about checking someone off your holiday list, but giving something that can help to alleviate stress and make a real difference to someone who needs it.
Stress-free holiday cheer
Cannabidiol (CBD) products are more than just a healthcare fad. Studies prove that they can help fight stress, anxiety and even pain to varying degrees. They aren’t magical cure-alls, but the right CBD products can definitely make someone’s festive season at least a little merrier.
When we talk about the health benefits of CBD oil and other products, we’re often talking about using it as a safe and effective way to destress naturally. We all want the best for our friends and loved ones, and there have been theories and evidence that CBD works with receptors in parts of the body such as the nervous system to treat pain that is otherwise difficult to manage. The best part? CBD is versatile enough to come in plenty of appealing forms. It can be incorporated into everything from tinctures to lotions and there are fantastic luxury options that fit nicely into a stocking.
Healing products that will make an impression
Take your Santa game to a whole new level this year by giving a gift that improves the quality of someone’s life. When people get stressed, it can contribute to an array of health problems. Seasonal changes are also hard for some, and finding a way to relax and reconnect can help get them through the holidays. Below, we’ve listed a few products to do just that:
CBD eye serum
We all know that person who burns the candle at both ends, especially at this time of year. Many people are working extra hours to cover holiday expenses, or trying to finish major school projects before they go on break. At times, no matter how overtired one might be, stress makes falling and staying asleep difficult. Inadequate sleep is no fun and can lead to telltale dark circles under the eyes. CBD eye serum combines cannabis sativa hemp oil with other natural ingredients to reduce puffiness, lighten dark circles and smooth fine lines. This is a small bottle that makes a big difference.
Lavender CBD rub
Tackle sore muscles, tension, and stress at the same time with our pure CBD lavender rub. This product combines the best of both worlds: the soothing scent of lavender and the powerful relief of cannabinoids. If you know someone who suffers from regular tension headaches, they can apply the lavender rub to the back of the neck and at the temples for instant relief.
Tinctures use pure CBD isolate in oils to target chronic pain, relieve anxiety and a number of other conditions. High-quality tinctures provide both instant and extended-release results, for all-day relief. You may be tempted to let them open this present a little early to bring back their holiday cheer!
Spending all day shopping and running from holiday party to family gatherings can do a number on your feet. CBD foot cream can reduce inflammation and take your foot massage to the next level. This is one gift that you may have to give yourself. For the ultimate stress-relief combination, add the original CBD rub to soothe sore muscles.
CBD face and body cleanser
There’s something rejuvenating about going through a beauty routine, and CBD cleansers can elevate the experience. With naturally beneficial ingredients that are formulated to improve the skin’s condition, this is another product range that makes phenomenal gifts.
Using CBD gifts: how much and how often?
It’s no secret that CBD products offer a myriad of health benefits, but many people still don’t know how to use them properly. Just like with any other natural treatment, it’s important to adhere to dosing guidelines. When using more than one product at a time, check the manufacturer’s guidelines for possible interactions.
If you are giving products as a gift, include a note let the recipient know how to use them!
Sore muscles, tension headaches, and site-specific pain can be treated using a CBD rub. Apply it directly to the affected area and massage into the skin for fast relief. For chronic or widespread pain, CBD tinctures can be ingested. It’s recommended that you place just a few drops of the liquid under your tongue. Leave it there for 90 seconds to maximize absorbency before swallowing.
Alleviating stress is a personal process and it may involve a custom combination of CBD-infused products. The lavender rub combined with CBD massage lotion can set you up for a fantastic relaxation experience. Tinctures can also be used during the day when you don’t have time to stop for a massage. Treating stress happens at both physical and spiritual levels.
Promoting relaxation starts with a routine. Set aside some “me time” each day and incorporate CBD beauty and wellness products into your regimen. Turn everything off and just let go of everything that’s weighing you down.
Giving your CBD gift a personal touch
Giving the gift of CBD really is giving someone a gift that can help them to heal and get relief when they need it the most. When purchasing for a close friend or loved one, pay attention to the products that they use every day. Consider some CBD products that will complement their current routines. You can also create a highly personal gift by hand-picking items and combining them specifically for that person’s needs.
