Wondering what products to recommend for Father’s Day, on June 21? If your customer is interested in cannabis-based health and wellness, then CBD products infused with hemp oil might be a good choice for a unique gift that won’t soon be forgotten.
CBD is no secret. The cannabinoid that doesn’t get you high has become a headlining wellness ingredient in products from supplemental gummies to shampoo. That’s because CBD is attributed with potent anti-inflammatory effects, among other benefits. Hemp products also have antiseptic and antibacterial properties that can be used to calm minor skin irritations with topical application. According to the latest research, CBD and other cannabinoids supplement the body’s endocannabinoid system to help balance and regulate other bodily systems.
The CBD oil used in products typically is derived from hemp that, by law, has only trace amounts of THC (the cannabinoid that produces the high effect). Some “full-spectrum” products will also contain additional hemp plant compounds, like terpenes or additional cannabinoids (but not THC; there are up to 200 cannabinoids produced by hemp or cannabis plants).
