This weekend we celebrate the mothers in our lives and let’s face it: they deserve the recognition. Whether honoring the woman who gave birth to you, raised you, took you in, or is the mother of your children, she has earned the right to be acknowledged at least one day (but let’s try for more, huh?) for all that she’s done for you. While Sunday May 13 is the perfect excuse for scoring the most epic floral bouquet ever and making sure the brunch spot offers bottomless mimosas, getting a thoughtful gift for your mom, grandma, aunt, wife or girlfriend just got a lot easier thanks to the rising popularity of cannabidiol, or CBD.
If you find yourself saying “what is CBD,” it’s one of the over 113 cannabinoids present in cannabis and its many therapeutic properties including acting as an anti-inflammatory, anticonvulsant and anti-depressant. Unlike THC, CBD doesn’t get the user high and in fact is especially beneficial when combined with other cannabinoids including THC and terpenes.
Most moms could use some “me time”, and CBD’s abilities as a source of wellness and healing make it the perfect gift for any mom. To provide some inspiration, we’ve put together this Mother’s Day Gift Guide full of CBD products that are sure to provide some relief to a mama you know and love.
For the Tough Mudder Mom
This mom is never in one place for long. She’s the boss in her own business or the right hand in yours. Maybe she’s training for a marathon, just had a baby, or both – either way, this lady has an endless to-do list and little time to simply chill.
A puff from Select’s low dose Peppermint CBD Vape Pen can help mom regain focus and power through even the most hectic day. And if she’s nervous about consuming, remind her that there’s no THC so she won’t get high.
If mom needs something a little stronger for stress, anxiety or pain, get her the Treatwell 20:1 Tincture which has 9.5mg CBD and 0.5mg THC per full dose. This tincture uses a wide spectrum of cannabinoids and terpenes, allowing her to benefit from all of their properties in what’s known as the “entourage effect”.
At the end of her day, this Relax bath bomb by Kush Queen uses CBD and organic essential oils to relive mom’s aches and pains while also helping her reduce stress. Give her one of these and a quiet 30 minutes (although 90 minutes would be better) to bask in its effects.
For the Mom who hasn’t had a massage since last Mother’s Day
Someone as special as your mom certainly deserves tons of pampering, but weekly trips to the spa aren’t always the easiest to accommodate. With these products however, she can create her own CBD spa right at home.
These soaps from Wildflower contain 20mg of CBD and are available in Vanilla and Lavender. So they’ll not only make mom’s skin smell great, but also help treat common skin conditions like acne and psoriasis.
To moisturize her skin, mom will love Lord Jones Pure CBD Body Lotion for the soothing 2mg of CBD in every pump. In addition to its deep penetrating relief for sore muscles and joints, Lord Jones offers two versions: one in their signature aroma, and a fragrance-free option.
Before bedtime, have mom apply Kana’s Lavender CBD Sleeping Mask on her face and neck. Its 28 active botanicals, including organic CBD, lavender and cannabis sativa seed extract, heal and rejuvenate the skin while she sleeps.
For the Foodie Mom
For the mom who appreciates all manner of culinary delight, there is a plethora of food products containing CBD. Scrap the box of candy and get her a few of these instead.
This Hemp + Sage Honey from INDA Creations is handmade in small batched and chock full of healing goodness, from organic coconut oil to raw Vermont honey. Perfect for adding to her tea and toast.
And speaking of coconut oil, these CBD-infused 20:1 Coconut Sticks from Irie CBD deliver full-spectrum results for better nail, hair and skin health. There are no harmful chemicals or additives, and mom can stir it into her tea or eat it right out of the tube.
If mom has a sweet tooth and doesn’t mind some light elevation, Goodship’s CBD double fudge brownie contains 10mg each of CBD and THC. The THC adds a little uplift to her day while the 1:1 ratio keeps things balanced, so she doesn’t have to worry about feeling too high.
