CBD. Unless you’ve been living an ultra-sheltered life of late, you’ll most likely have heard those three letters, and more than three times. CBD is an IT product of the moment. From anti-marijuana mothers to your local librarian, everyone’s jumping on CBD’s chill-inducing train. And is there any season more in need of a de-stress than the holiday one? As far corners of the family unite, arguments are inevitable, after all.
CBD is a non-psychoactive compound found in the cannabis plant that has potential healing properties. It won’t get you high. Currently there are various studies evaluating CBD’s role in curbing anxiety, while others are looking at whether it can be used as an alternative to opioids to treat chronic pain. Claims that CBD has anti-inflammatory effects on the skin and helps to combat oxidative stress has also led to an increase in demand for CBD-infused skincare.

Daughter of the Land Cannabidiol Bath Soak
Soaking in the tub is already a relaxing activity, yet these CBD-injected salts take bathtime to a whole new level. Giving off a scent described as “forest fresh”, the salts combine over 80 trace minerals and magnesium and contain arnica Montana oil, which is known for its restorative and anti-inflammatory properties (just like CBD). All of the ingredients are organic, fair trade, and vegan.
Kiehl’s Cannabis Sativa Seed Oil Herbal Concentrate
Cannabis Sativa Seed Oil Herbal Concentrate
Where to shop
Formulated with naturally derived ingredients, including hemp-derived cold-pressed cannabis sativa seed oil and green oregano oil, this lightweight facial oil is said to calm stressed skin, strengthen its barrier function, and visibly reduce blotchiness.
Sakara Hemp Chocolates
Chocolate can seem a bit cliché, but this isn’t like giving someone a box of Hershey kisses. Each chocolate is made with fair trade raw dark cacao and coconut sugar and contains 5mg of CBD. Sahara’s CBD extract is made from the stalks of non-GMO hemp which is organically grown in the USA. It’s extracted without the use of solvents or chemicals using a supercritical CO2 process.
CBD Dog Treats
This is a gift for you to either give to your own furry friend or that someone who only has eyes for their pooch. Made with organic, vegan ingredients, these green apple and peanut butter flavor dog treats each contains 5mg of CBD and can help to relieve stress and anxiety in your pet.
Kiki Health CBD Oil
Our final item is a premium oil with a CBD content of 25%. Each 10ml bottle contains approximately 2500mg of CBD, which works out about 12mg per drop. It is 100% vegetable-based and organic, and free from solvents, synthetics, colorants, additives, and preservatives. This oil is a little pricey, so probably a gift more suitable for someone you really care about, rather than the colleague whose name you pulled out of the hat for Secret Santa.
Recess Hemp-Infused Sparkling Water 12 Pack
Not much of a tea drinker? Recess is a sparkling water infused with hemp extract and adaptogens, which help the body adapt to stress, heighten energy, and boost endurance. This beverage also contains American ginseng, which is said to stimulate the brain and boost focus. It comes in three flavors: blackberry chai, peach ginger, and pomegranate hibiscus.
MALIN GOETZ Cannabis Candle
Heads up, this cannabis candle doesn’t actually contain any material from the cannabis plant. However, its scent is described as evoking lazy afternoons and the aromas that linger after smoking pot. It has top notes of bergamot and pepper, middle notes of magnolia, with a base of cedarwood, patchouli, and sandalwood. This product is vegan and cruelty-free.
Cannabis & CBD Health Book
Cannabis can be a complex world, so a book written by two experts – the founder of a global cannabis wellness network and an osteopathic physician – is bound to be a good gift for anyone who’s a little skeptical or confused by the vast number of products out there. This is a comprehensive guide to using cannabis — including CBD and THC — to ease chronic and acute health issues such as pain, insomnia, inflammation, depression, anxiety, grief, and stress. It goes through the different cannabis forms, methods of ingestion, dosing, safety, storage, caregiving, and effectiveness for self-care, physical fitness, sexual arousal, and aging.
Hello Goldie. Botanical Tea
Each serving of Hello Goldie’s botanical tea tastes of wild berries and is infused with 20mg of organic hemp. Containing guayusa, this tea is rich in essential amino acids that are supposed to improve mood and induce relaxation. Other key ingredients include green tea – which boosts energy – and hibiscus – which can aid depression and boost liver health.
Lord Jones CBD Starter Gift Set
This gift is a good introduction to CBD in its different forms: it includes edibles, skincare and a tincture.
