With new CBD products entering the marketing, like CBD honey or CBD water, CBD is becoming more accessible than ever. The Farm Bill of 2018 federally legalized products made with industrialized hemp, making it easier for people to try and experience the benefits of CBD for themselves. This holiday season, more people are considering gifting CBD to a friend or loved one. Before you start buying everyone you know CBD, here are a few tips to consider to help you give the best CBD gifts.
Things to Know Before Giving CBD as a Gift
If you’re thinking about giving CBD as a gift to someone who isn’t a current CBD user, here are some things to think about before making that CBD gift purchase.
Would They Even Try CBD?
While products made with industrialized hemp are now legal in all 50 states, some people hold stigmas against CBD. Whether they confuse it with marijuana or aren’t familiar with the benefits of natural healing alternatives, consider they would be open to using CBD in the first place. If so, it’s a good idea to start them with easier to use, more familiar products like a CBD edible or topical muscle CBD rub.
How Will CBD Be Beneficial to Them?
While there are many health benefits to using CBD, it is not a cure-all. However, there are a variety of beneficial CBD products that can help people, from beauty and skincare CBD products that help the skin to soothing CBD muscle rubs for athletes or people with minor aches and pains. Think about how CBD can benefit the person you’re shopping for – do they need help sleeping, could they use a bit of de-stressing, do they need some pain relief – and find the best CBD product to fit that need.
How Will CBD Fit Their Lifestyle?
CBD comes in a variety of forms, flavors, and shapes. When considering giving CBD as a gift, consider the person’s lifestyle when selecting which CBD product to give. It’s important to choose a product that will easily integrate into their life. Making it convenient for them to take CBD will help it become a part of their daily routine – a necessary step to see results from CBD. For example, if they already take daily vitamins, it will be easy to just add another CBD capsule to their regimen.
Choosing High-Quality, Lab-Tested CBD Brands
Before purchasing CBD from any source, there are two things you want to check – third party lab test results and information about where and how the hemp used in the products is grown.
Reputable CBD brands perform independent, third-party lab testing on each batch of their products. This testing verifies the products contain the reported amount of CBD and no or less than 0.3% THC. Reports also show the amounts of other chemicals and compounds like other Cannabinoids or terpenes. Look for the test results for the product(s) your considering before purchasing.
The quality of hemp-based CBD products is heavily reliant on the quality of the hemp plant itself. Ideally, you’d want organically grown, Non-GMO hemp plants grown in the United States. Many CBD brands work with local farmers to ensure reliability and quality control. Check the brand’s website for information about the source of their hemp-based CBD extracts.
