The Ultimate CBD Gift Guide

CBD: That thing that everyone kiiiiinda thought was a mild form of pot for awhile, and now has become a wellness staple even your grandmother can get on board with.

A quick primer: CBD stands for cannabidiol, a compound found naturally in hemp plants and distinct from THC (which is what creates the psychoactive effect). Cannabinoids work with a series of receptors in your body that perform jobs like regulating your anti-inflammatory response, immune system, appetite, mood, anxiety levels, sleep schedule, and so on. Unlike THC, CBD won’t get you “high” in the sense of being intoxicated – but countless studies have shown that it promotes a sense of peace and well-being akin to what you experience when, say, you’re singing along to your favorite song on the radio.

A natural high. Doesn’t that sound lovely?

And the best part about the fact that CBD has become so popular? You can get it in a bazillion different forms, from bath salts to gummy bears. We rounded up some of our favorite CBD-inclusive products…and, ok, a few THC-related ones, too.

Hey, I live in California.


Floramye Balancing CBD Facial Oil

I’m a huge fan of facial oils, and this artisanal facial oil from Floramye contains CBD to help calm and soothe the skin. It also comes in two gorgeous scents – I’m partial to Bravura, with notes of cedarwood and ylang ylang.


PūrWell CBD Oil Tincture

This pharmacist-formulated tincture contains cannabinoid-rich, whole plant hemp oil, organic MCT oil, and organic essential oils – plus it’s vegan, sugar free, gluten free, and alcohol free. Just throw a couple of drops under your tongue, and you’re good.


Veritas Farms CBD Starter Kit

If you’re thinking of gifting CBD to a newbie, check out this complete CBD starter kit from Veritas Farms. It contains a tincture, a salve, capsules and a lip balm. You can also customize the flavors and strengths, which is a cool feature.


BioFit 360 Vegan CBD Gummies

Our editorial director tried out these vegan CBD gummies and loved how they not only took the edge off, but also tasted like (delicious) candy.


Lord Jones CBD Bath Salt

CBD bath salts! So fun. These are made with pink Himalayan salt, arnica, magnesium-rich Epsom salts, calendula petals, and essential oils that support deep body relaxation. And the packaging is gorgeous.


The Liv Brand CBD Infused Veggie Chips

These CBD infused veggie chips from The Liv Brand are made with hempseeds and infused with Hemp CBD, and would make a cute stocking stuffer.


Mazz Hanna's Smoky Quartz Infused CBD Foot Spray

From the company’s website: “Ingredients are amplified with a Smoky Quartz that has been blessed by a Shaman under a full moon.”

Foot spray. That has been blessed by a Shaman. Under a full moon.


This is so ridiculous that I cannot help but adore it.


Press Pause Project CBD Chai Tea 

This tea created by a woman-owned CBD company combines the eastern tradition of the tea ceremony with water-soluble CBD. Lovely mother-in-law gift.


Moon Mother Hemp Company Wise Woman Moon Time Box

Specifically targeted towards the aches and pains associated with menstruation, this set includes Comfort Balm, Ritual Soaking Salts, and a Peppermint Hemp Oil Tincture.

Best friend gift? Best friend gift.


Civilized Coffee Co CBD Coffee

Clearly the product that every parent’s life has been missing up until now.


Beam CBD Salve

The Fixer salve is the perfect gift for the athletic one in your family: It’s a soothing balm that takes away muscle pain and inflammation with lavender, eucalyptus, and CBD extract.


Color Up Therapeutics CBD Bath Bomb

How to make a bath even more relaxing?

Just add CBD.

(I want this one for myself, obvs.)


Skeem Design CBD Body Products

I’m a huge fan of Skeem Design, and love that they now offer a full suite of CBD-infused products for face and body – the lip balm and body oil are my faves.


Satividol Softgels

Though not the sexiest gift, these CBD softgels would make for a nice first foray into CBD for a family member.


Dosist Sleep

And now, allow us to move into some more THC-inclusive products, because #thematic.

As a career insomniac, I cannot tell you what a game-changer this product has been for me. The 8:1 THC/CBD ratio means you get some cuh-razy dreams going on, but it’s sort of like simultaneously sleeping and going to the movies. Multitasking!

P.S. If you’re concerned about the safety of vape pens, Dosist – according to their website, at least – does not use Vitamin E acetate, which is at the crux of the rash of cases of respiratory disease linked to vaping.


Tobogan Pipe

Is this a pipe…or an excellent addition to your coffee table decor?

Shop Tetra has the absolute most stylish pipes, ashtrays and lighters around, if you prefer your THC delivered the old-fashioned way. I own the Tortoise Lighter, and I adore it.


Four Twenty Candle

…Because it’s 4:20 somewhere.


Raw Bamboo Rolling Tray

And finally: this. It’s a highly-organized stoner’s dream.
