CBD is the Holiday Gift that Keeps Giving


It would not be a stretch to say that one’s personal health and wellness are more important than ever, especially as it relates to maintaining a strong immune system during the COVID-19 pandemic. But even without concerns over COVID, consumers have become a lot more mindful about living a healthier lifestyle.


In a recent survey, 87 percent of consumers indicated that improving their overall health and wellness was a New Year’s resolution for 2021. While 54 percent of consumers said that their spend on health and wellness products would remain unchanged, 29 percent plan to spend more on health and wellness products in 2021. Furthermore, the survey found that 42 percent of consumers plan to buy CBD gifts for others, while 46 percent of consumers plan to buy CBD for themselves this holiday season.[1]


CBD is the gift that keeps giving


Whether your friends and family already are on the CBD bandwagon or are new to the ingredient, CBD is truly a gift that keeps giving when it comes to wellness.

Consumers are turning to CBD for a host of health issues, including, most notably, joint and muscle pain, headaches, and even skin problems such as rosacea and eczema.  CBD also has been shown to reduce inflammation and to boost the immune system.  As well as physical ailments, CBD has demonstrated its effectiveness in reducing anxiety and stress, boosting mood, and even helping insomniacs get to sleep and stay asleep.  It’s no wonder that the market for CBD is experiencing tremendous growth. CBD sales will exceed $20 billion by 2024,


Explaining ABC’s of CBD


For those on your holiday shopping list who may not fully understand how CBD works, you’ll want to give them a quick primer, explaining that CBD is one of the over 60 cannabinoids or naturally-occurring chemicals found in industrial hemp and marijuana that interact with natural receptors in the brain and body to affect pain response, among other effects.

Cannabinoids work with the body’s own endocannabinoid system (ECS), a network of neurotransmitters that send chemical messages between the neurons or cells that transmit nerve impulses. CBD interacts with these ECS receptors to help regulate sleep, appetite, mood, immune function, and pain. That’s why, for many, a dose of CBD is part of their daily wellness regimen.


Pick out the Perfect Gift


It will be no problem finding the perfect CBD gift for just about anyone on your shopping list.  For the body, you’ll find a host of CBD products ranging from body lotions and body balms to bath bombs and bath salts, perfumes, and even lip balms and revitalizing shampoos. Looking for edible CBD gifts? How does CBD infused olive oils and honey or teas, gummies and gumdrops, even chocolate truffles sound?
