If you are like me, then you have a large list of presents to get your near and dear family, friends, co-workers and community members. This is the time of year to celebrate and thank those you love. Each person requires a different type of present based on their personality, style and likes. For the person in your life who enjoys CBD or is looking into the world of CBD products we have compiled a list of what you should think about getting them.
First and foremost, there are a few different forms of CBD. Like with most gifting, it is important to find out what they like. Know the recipient prior to purchasing
FORMS OF CBD PRODUCTS
CBD Hemp Flower
A CBD flower is another name for a CBD bud. They typically come from the hemp plant and do not contain THC. If they do, it is small trace amounts. Most would say that using the flower does not give you the same effect. Consumers like the flowers when they aren’t looking for a high but want to experience the positive side effects of the hemp plant. The best CBD hemp flower can be used for such things as baking, smoking, vaping, capsules, and cooking
CBD Oil comes in different types. Full Spectrum CBD Oil, Broad Spectrum CBD oil and CBD Isolate are the types you will find available for purchase. What makes them different is how they are extracted from the plant. Full Spectrum CBD Oil is one of the most common and known to be the most effective. Full spectrum may show up on a drug test at high doses but does not make you feel high.
Broad Spectrum is just like Full Spectrum with the THC removed. Finally, CBD Oil isolate is CBD oil with only CBD oil, nothing else. This type is known to be the least effective. Oils are usually sold in doses of 1,000, 3,000 or 10,000 MG. You can ask your online retailer or store what your dosage amount should be.
CBD Gummies are exactly what they sound like. They are gummy candies infused with CBD oil. There are many different types of gummy candy choices to fit every need. They also come in different dosage amounts similar to the oils. They are likely to be less potent (500 MG is typical) because they can easily be consumed. Gummies are great because they taste great and go directly into the system.
No need to swallow a pill. All you have to do is chew the candy and go. Just like CBD oil, they are non-psychotropic which means they won’t get you high unless they have THC in them. Ingesting CBD via gummies takes a lot less to get high compared to smoking or vaping because it is ingested through your stomach rather then your lungs. You get more bang for your buck. Gummies also are longer lasting because they go through your digestive system.
Softgels allow you to ingest the oil through pill form. It has many of the benefits as gummies except you don’t get the taste of a gummy, just swallowing a pill. This may be easy for some but hard for others especially if you are taking CBD for medicinal purposes (cancer, chronic pain, etc.) Some may prefer to just swallow and not have to taste anything as well. It depends on the preference.
Since CBD comes in different forms you can figure out what would work best for the recipient or get them options to explore the different products. You can either get them the physical gift or potentially get them a gift card to an online or brick and mortar retailer. Availability of the product differs from state to state. If you or the gift recipient is into CBD then more than likely you know what the rules are in your current state.
All CBD gifts are well received because of the many benefits they provide. If there is someone in your life who is sick, suffering from chronic pain or suffering from mental illness then these products may be a good option for them as well. You could always suggest it to them if you know someone who is suffering.
