My background is in the business of healthcare and that includes promotion of products and services. But, never in my 35+ year career would I expect to produce a 420 Gift Guide for 2018. As a matter of fact, I only learned that the term 420 is code term for the cannabis culture and according to my favorite wiki, it dates back to 1971 and five high school kids.
But, here we are... my suggestions for those celebrating April 20th with products containing hemp and/or CBD. I'll leave the THC products to those focused on that market!
My first recommendation isn't for my human friends, instead it is for our four legged friends who also suffer from chronic disease and functional limitations. Have you ever seen an older dog with arthritis or hip pain?
Phyto Animal Health Bacon Apple Donuts are CBD-infused soft chews help provide support to your dog’s cardiovascular function, fights anxiety, supports joints and hips, and provides other desirable side effects such as glowing skin and hair. Did someone say bacon?
These will soon be available and I'm wondering if I should expand my CBD line-up to our pets who also make us feel better and distract us from our illness. If your interested, leave a comment or send me a message.
The second item on my gift guide is a product I don't currently carry, because I'm just not sure how beauty fits in with functional limitations. However, when you are feeling fatigued and drained of energy, maybe more vibrant skin aids in improving your emotional health.
My husband and I each tried Cannabis Beauty Defined Cleanser and it did seem to tighten our skin; a great benefit when you are aging. It is formulated to maximize the effects of CBD to protect skin from the damage caused by free radicals. This cleanser is non-drying, sulfate free and packed with vitamins, minerals, and enriching moisture to leave your skin looking vibrant and healthy. It’s an extremely effective anti-inflammatory and is known to help slow down the anti-aging process, as well.
In third place we get back to my interest in CBD and Real Scientific Hemp Oil (RSHO) Salve works wonders for tired muscles, aching joints, or sore bodies. Simply rub the salve on the area that hurts and soon you’ll be on your way to relief. Beyond that, RSHO salve can be used to relieve rough elbows, cracked cuticles or even an itchy scalp and dry hair.
Since this has been proven to be beneficial to me and a few customers, this is in stock and ready for delivery.
Pain can interfere with sleep; which can then lead to productivity, safety and relationship issues. When I need to sleep, my go to CBD product and fourth recommendation is the Real Scientific Oral Concentrate - Green Label . At first glance it may seem expensive, but the 15G tube contains 1500 mg of CBD in its raw form, as well as, vitamins, minerals, essential fatty acids, terpenes, and other cannabinoids.
Start with a .5 ml dose and work your way up to find the amount right for you.
It might seem I should stop at four recommendations for a 4/20 gift guide, but I'll stop at five.... because four times five equals 20! So, my fifth and final recommendation is for those days when you are sluggish, fatigued and even have some distracting aches.
Mango Citrus Dixie Botanicals Kicks are a great way of getting the benefits of caffeine without drinking more coffee or energy drinks. It is a healthy, low calorie energy chew blended with 60 mcg of Vitamin D3 for a more natural boost. These Kicks also contain B vitamins and pure CBD-isolate to help give you the energy you need on-the-go.
In addition to the mango-citrus flavor, chocolate is also available.
