The holiday season is upon us and that means it's time to find the perfect gift for your loved ones. If you have any caregivers in your life, I have a list of products I recommend. Whether you know someone seeking relief from chronic pain or something to help with anxiety and insomnia, there are CBD hemp products that could potentially help. (Disclaimer: Recipients of CBD gifts should verify with a medical professional that such products are safe for them to consume.)
Why CBD topicals make good gifts for caregivers: Creams, salves, lotions and other topical products can be a great introduction to CBD for a caregiver. The hands of carers often become dry and cracked, because they endure a lot of hand-washing and may be exposed to harsh chemicals in cleaning products.
- BuyLegalMeds.com: Select everything from lotions, to pain-relieving freezing gels to bath bombs.
- Cannabidiol Life: Consider the CBD Body Butter ($24.95) made with mango seed butter, which may help treat skin condition like eczema.
- CBD Distillery: This company offers a CBD salve and cream (each $50). The salve features a soothing blend of CBD and lavender, peppermint, wintergreen, marjoram, eucalyptus and frankincense, among other botanicals. The cream is ideal for dry hands, leaving them soft but not greasy.
- CBDfx: Try the CBD balm or the CBD cream ($29.99-$39.99), infused with caffeine, willow bark extract and menthol.
Fab: The CBD Muscle and Joint Topical ($64) has a refreshing blood orange scent and offers a soothing treatment for dry skin and aching muscles.
HempMeds: This company offers a wide range of topicals, from salves to roll-on pain relief formulas. The Salvation Balm ($39) is ideal for treating dry skin, and smells great, with a mix of cedarwood and lavender oil.
Koi: Try the Lavender Koi CBD lotion ($44.99), a lavender-scented hand and body lotion that's infused with CBD.
