CBD, cannabidiol oil has been making a recent splash in the media as commercial hemp slowly makes a comeback in the United States. Extracted from commercial hemp plants, CBD is a natural supplement that has been touted to be good for anxiety, stress, pain, sleep management, anti-inflammatory agent and more. The endocannabinoid system has been shown to control a host of function in the human body, and more studies are being conducted to further explore the benefit of CBD in humans.
With all of the recent buzz about the benefits of CBD, there are a myriad of ways to experiment with CBD and its application to find out the method and dosage that works best for your individual situation. Don’t like how the oil tastes? Try vaping! Don’t like the idea of vaping? Try some CBD infused candies. If you are new to CBD, the information and products available may be overwhelming – which is why getting a present of CBD is such a fun gift! It can allow you to experiment with an application method you may not have known was available.

CBD Edibles – great for those who don’t want to smoke/vape/or use CBD oil. You can find CBD infused edibles in almost any form, from chocolate to gummies
CBD Vape – different from traditional smoking, CBD vape oils are made of oil and contain no synthetics, or nicotine. Vaping is said to be one of the most effective and quickest ways to feel the affects of CBD
