Looking for something new and different to give to friends and family this holiday season? With hemp products becoming increasingly popular—33% of American adults have used CBD once or more (SingleCare, 2020) and 64% of Americans are familiar with it (Gallup, 2019)—there’s never been a better time to introduce the people you love to natural yet effective CBD and THC remedies that can make a big difference in their well-being.
To help make shopping easier at this busy time of year, we’ve compiled a gift guide to help you choose the right hemp products for the right people in your life—so you can give the gift of wellness benefits that last long after the season is over.
GIFTS FOR THE PASSIONATE ATHLETE
If you’re buying for someone who’s always headed out on a run or off to a new fitness class, consider looking beyond the typical water bottle or wireless headphones. Fun fact: The cannabinoids in CBD creams like our Reset Button CBD body butter work with the body’s endocannabinoid system to help restore homeostasis after hard workouts, making these natural solutions a wonderful way to ease sore muscles and revitalize tired limbs. Alternatively, an all-purpose salve like our Magic Touch CBD salve is another great way to relieve pain and soreness on the go. Made with a beautiful blend of eucalyptus, lavender and peppermint scents, it can both energize and soothe at the same time.
GIFTS FOR THE OVER-SCHEDULER
You know the type: This full-time-working, social-event-coordinating, head-of-every-committee personality is so booked up, you have to text them weeks in advance just to grab a quick coffee. Put simply: This person deserves a break. Treat them to a gift set that’s a one-stop shop for self care—we recommend the Verist Starter Kit Featuring full-spectrum CBD oil, luxurious CBD body butter and portable lip balm, it offers several versatile options for natural stress relief—which is one of the most popular reasons modern Americans use CBD. And if this person really needs to let loose, you can always add on a pack of 5-mg Delta-9 THC gummies: these ones (made from single-origin hemp grown on our fourth-generation MN family farm) are our best sellers!
GIFTS FOR THE PERPETUAL YAWNER
Sleeping issues are incredibly common—especially as people get older—and we all know someone in our lives who could use more quality rest. Taking or applying CBD before bedtime has been shown to help users fall asleep faster and stay asleep longer, and it doesn’t carry the habit-forming concerns of stronger sleep medications. Our Good Night CBD gummies are made with melatonin in addition to full-spectrum, single-origin CBD to offer an extra dose of calm, while our Good Night CBD body butter leaves skin so soft and moisturized in addition to aiding in sleep. Hey, if we found these in our stocking Christmas morning, we’d probably just grab ‘em and head back to bed!
GIFTS FOR THE TRENDSETTER
If you know someone who’s all over every new trend, chances are, they already know about the benefits of hemp. But do they know Verist? As a local Minnesota brand crafting products from hemp grown exclusively on our fourth-generation family farm, our CBD and THC remedies are naturally superior. Grown using truly organic, clean and green practices, we treat our hemp plants like our babies, and it shows in the quality of our products. When you gift remedies like our Au Naturel CBD oil or our Delta-9 THC gummies, you’re not only shopping local (if you’re Minnesotan), you’re buying the highest quality hemp products around—and that translates directly to the benefits you (and your friends and family) experience when you use them. So give the trendsetter in your life the best gift of all: amazing wellness products plus a new family-owned, sustainable brand they can share with the world!
