Why CBD Makes a Great Gift

Why CBD Makes a Great Gift

The holidays are upon us, and with them, the annual stress of finding the right gift. While most people on your list probably don’t need another sweater or bottle of wine, everyone can use more calm and well-being this time of year—so why not give the unique and therapeutic gift of naturally beneficial CBD? Below are a few ways giving CBD can benefit everyone you have to buy for—and make a great present for yourself as well.


The holidays are a time to cozy up, take stock of what matters and transition to a new year of opportunities and challenges. Putting some CBD under the tree shows you’re truly thinking of the recipient on their journey to a happy and healthy 2022. To give the gift of whole-body and whole-mind benefits, it’s best to choose an edible CBD product like our Chill Vibes oil or Good Day gummies. Unlike topical CBD, which works to provide targeted relief in certain areas of the body, edible CBD products interact with cannabinoid receptors in the brain to create an overall sense of well-being, which is great for anyone looking to feel more centered and peaceful in the new year.


If you know someone who wants to hit the gym more often in the new year, CBD is a meaningful way to support their post-workout recovery. Topical CBD, like our all-purpose Magic Touch salve (made with soothing eucalyptus, lavender and peppermint oil), works by absorbing into the outer skin, activating pain-fighting cannabinoids in as little as 10 minutes, with effects that can last for five hours or more.

If the person you’re looking to gift isn’t an athlete, topical CBD remedies like our Reset Button body butter (made with restorative cedarwood) can help to relieve everyday aches and pains, too.


For people who enjoy being outside in winter, the cold, dry air can wreak havoc on their skin—and especially their lips. Top off the stocking of any outdoor-lover with nourishing and revitalizing CBD lip balm like our Fresh Air lip balm, made with revitalizing coconut oil and Vitamin E.

Sleep is also a great time to let skin rest and regenerate. CBD lotions like our Good Night body butter (made with melatonin) offer moisturizing and healing benefits to the skin while helping the body fall asleep faster and stay asleep longer.


CBD is a gift that shows you care about the health and well-being of the person you’re giving it to—and it’s easy to integrate into their existing lifestyle. Simply adding CBD oil to their morning smoothie or incorporating CBD body butter into their nighttime skincare routine can lead to a more balanced and peaceful state of mind—and we all want that for our loved ones. Not sure exactly which products to pick? Go with a Verist gift card and let the recipient choose what’s right for them.
