All We Want for Christmas Is to Be Zen—Here Are 11 CBD Products That Get the Job Done
CBD, ever heard of it? Of course you have, because it’s all anyone’s talking about this year. Thanks to hemp terpenes, it naturally smells like traditional cannabis, which can be misleading since regulated products don’t include any THC (the stuff that causes psychoactive effects). In other words, CBD won’t get you high, and it’s legal, promise. Instead, it simply helps even out stress, sleep, mood and pain levels by reducing inflammation in the body. Imagine giving someone the gift of a blissful night’s sleep or an instant, natural mood lift, all wrapped up in a chic, vanity-worthy package? Yes, please. Whether you’ve got a list full of novices or you happened to pick the CBD pro from the Secret Santa pile, here are 11 of the best, most giftable CBD products on the market.
1. Herbivore Emerald Deep Moisture Glow Oil
Just look at the bottle—how chic would this look displayed on a vanity? It contains a very tame 100 milligrams of CBD, so it’s the ideal gift for someone who’s just getting into the whole hemp thing. Plus, it includes a trio of hydrating oils (squalane, meadowfoam seed oil and borage seed oil) for an extra glow that anyone would appreciate.
2. Beboe Therapies High Potency CBD Sheet Mask (Set of 5)
Each cloth mask delivers 50 milligrams of soothing CBD directly to your face for bright, glowing, more evenly toned skin. We think the custom tattoo design by Scott Campbell is pretty cool too.
3. Saint Jane Microdose Lip Gloss
You’re looking at the first-ever natural lip gloss made with CBD. It comes in five slightly shimmery shades infused with sunflower, chamomile and aloe to soothe and condition lips. Think of it as a treatment and a sheer wash of color in one step.
4. Cannuka Nourishing Body Cream
Manuka honey and 100 milligrams of CBD are the star ingredients in this anti-inflammatory and antibacterial cream, which targets dryness and blemishes like nothing else we’ve tried. At $28 a pop, you might as well grab one for everyone on your list.
5. Superflower Everyday Serum
If you like the smell of cannabis and the feeling of super-hydrated skin, this new CBD serum is just the thing to add to your routine. It goes on more like a cream than a sticky serum and makes skin instantly dewy and bouncy with a long-term glow that induces major compliments.
6. Lord Jones Royal Oil 1000mg Pure CBD Oil
Use this as a tincture or topically—the only two ingredients are grapeseed oil and CBD, so it’s multifunctional. It has a pretty neutral taste, so adding it to smoothies or coffee won’t alter your drink’s flavor, plus the grapeseed oil leaves a subtle lit-from-within sheen on skin. It’s the only product you need for calming, pain relief and skin care.
7. Prima Daily Softgel Capsule
If you don’t want to deal with measuring a tincture and wondering if you’re over- or under-dosing, a softgel capsule is the way to go. This one delivers an effective 15 millegrams of CBD and complementary herbs like clove bud, black pepper and curcumin oils directly to your system to help balance stress, sleep, mood and immunity. Take it every day with your multivitamin and you’ll notice a major difference.
8. Mineral Sleep Tincture
This stuff doesn’t mess around. Anyone who struggles with falling asleep at night should try this tincture. It’s formulated with a whopping 1,500 milligrams of CBD (50 milligrams per dropper), another cannabinoid called CBG and a terpene called myrcene, all of which help calm the body and mind to make dozing off easier (without any psychoactive effects). Take it 30 minutes before bed and you’ll be blissfully snoozing in no time.
9. Treaty Calm Tincture
We love that Treaty’s tinctures are infused with more than just broad-spectrum hemp CBD—they also include herbs that help support a state of tranquility. This one, appropriately called Calm, includes rose, linden and basil to further relieve feelings of stress and anxiety. Bonus: It tastes herbaceous (if that’s your thing).
10. The Good Patch Hemp-Infused Be Calm Patch
This discreet patch is probably the most innovative way to get your CBD fix. Along with 15 milligrams of anxiety-reducing hemp, it includes pain-relieving menthol to temporarily relieve minor aches and pains. Pop one on the inside of your wrist, inner elbow, ankle or shoulder and reap up to 24 hours of calming benefits.
11. Lord Jones High CBD Formula Bath Salts
The ultimate way to de-stress and soothe tired, achy muscles (from a tough workout, or you know, life), these CBD bath salts are infused with natural flower petals and essential oils to also deliver nutrients to skin. It’s like giving someone permission to spend a quiet night at home, post–holiday craziness. Oh, and Selma Blair is a fan.
