It seems like every holiday season there’s a mad scramble for that last-minute stocking stuffer or for that present for a white elephant gift exchange. For gifting where you’ve set a maximum spend value, it can be hard to find a quality gift in the price range that the recipient will actually like.
So maybe this year you should turn to some small but powerful hemp-derived cannabidiol (CBD) gifts to fill those last-minute needs. Since the CBD in all of these products comes from hemp, they ship legally to all 50 states. There’s also no tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) in these products, so no one will feel high when using them.
These gifts are all under $20 and contain high-quality CBD that can help with a variety of things—from dry, irritated skin to muscle aches. And what’s better than giving friends and family the gift of good health?
Winter can be harsh for all types of skin. If you’re buying for someone who likes to look and feel their best, they’ll love the CBD+ Soap from Wildflower.
This all-natural bar soap comes in either lavender or vanilla with scents that are pleasant and relaxing, but not overpowering. From the first use, skin feels softer, plumper and more even.
Users report it even helps with makeup removal and more severe skin conditions like acne and psoriasis. At only $10, it’s an affordable way to help someone add a bit of luxury to their skin care routine.
If someone on your list is interested in taking CBD regularly—like they would a daily multivitamin—a fantastic way to ingest the healing cannabinoid is by using Cured Nutrition’s Cured Spices in the kitchen. Each $18 pot of spices contains 100 gm of CBD, and there are three flavors to choose from:
Sprinkle the cinnamon and honey spices on oatmeal, roll some mixed nuts in the smoky BBQ, or season a salmon fillet with the roasted garlic & lemon pepper.
These CBD spices are ideal for the canna-curious and/or for someone who enjoys cooking.
Transdermal patches are a great way to gain the pain-relieving benefits of CBD in an easy-to-use, mess-free form. And SIVA’s CBD patch provides a microdose of high-quality, lab-tested CBD.
Each patch contains 20 mg of CBD, which can help ease a back ache, pulled muscle or a sore shoulder. Users can apply the patch wherever they need relief and wear it for hours under their clothing without anyone knowing.
Just peel the patch off the backing, place it where you need pain relief and let the patch go to work. At just $9 per patch, you’ll be hard-pressed to find a more economical, effective little gift.
CBD is widely known to help moisturize and repair skin—and the same goes for lips, too. Pure Ratios’ CBD lip balm is the perfect stocking stuffer for anyone on your list. Besides CBD, the balm contains other nourishing ingredients, which help soothe and prevent dry, cracked lips like:
At just $10 each, you can gift these potent little lip balms to everyone on your list.
Maybe the person you’re buying for is a devoted doggie parent. Or maybe in your house Fido gets his own Christmas stocking. Either way, the canine gift that combines mouth-watering flavors and good health are the CBD Lamb Dog Treats from Holistic Hound.
The ingredients in these lamb treats include:
Dogs have an endocannabinoid system just like we do, so they can also benefit from CBD’s anti-inflammatory, calming and pain-relieving properties.
Dog owners have reported that CBD has helped their furry best friend with everything from separation anxiety to creaky joints. A bag of 15 treats costs just $15.
