Christmas is just around the corner, and after such a stressful 2020, it is time to treat yourself and your loved ones.
Buying for the herbal hippy in your life can always be a bit of a tough task. Fortunately for you, we’ve got three amazing CBD infused products you can make at home like CBD spray, CBD balms, etc—just to show them how much you love them!
It seems like everyone is marketing CBD these days, and for good reason. However, just in case you’re out of the loop, know this: CBD is an extract from the cannabis or hemp plant. It’s legal in the USA, provided it has less than 0.3 percent THC in it.
The reason for its huge popularity are its various purported medical benefits. Though research into the substance is relatively new, it’s believed CBD could help with a range of health problems. It’s popular for those suffering from anxiety, depression, sleep problems, and chronic pain.
Of course, some people choose to use CBD simply for the positive and relaxing benefits it has. This is why a CBD infused product is a great gift, in our humble opinion!
DIY CBD Infused Products
We think a homemade gift is much more thoughtful than something bought. These recipes make it easy for you to spread the CBD love this Christmas!
1. CBD Infused Lip Balm
Lip balms or salves are particularly ideal for winter. Especially when CBD is suspected to help with dry skin, this lip balm will get your loved ones smiling.
First, you’re going to need something to put them in, so make sure to source some cute containers beforehand. All you’ll need otherwise is below:
- 2 tablespoons shea butter
- 2 tablespoons coconut oil
- 1 tablespoon beeswax
- 500 mg of CBD isolate
We’d also suggest using some kind of essential oil to add a beautiful scent to your lip balm. Simply place a glass bowl over a saucepan of boiling water. Then add beeswax, shea butter, and coconut oil and stir until smooth.
Remove from the heat add the CBD and any other essential oil. Mix well and put into your chosen containers. Leave to set and you’re ready to go.
2. CBD Infused Face Mask
Easy to make and lovely for the skin thanks to anti-aging properties, CBD facemasks are a luxurious treat. All you’ll need is the following:
- 100mg of CBD
- 1 teaspoon of raw honey
- 1 teaspoon of organic unflavoured yogurt
- 1 tablespoon of turmeric powder
Just mix all the ingredients together in a small bowl. Remember, these are perishable, so it’s best to make them just before you intend to give them.
3. CBD Infused Gummy Bears
If your loved one isn’t so much into skincare, these sweets are a great alternative. This recipe will make you 50 gummies that you package how you want. You’ll also need a gummy bear mold beforehand.
- ½ cup pureed fruit (your choice on flavor!)
- 8 teaspoons gelatin
- 1000 mg of CBD
- ½ cup distilled water
Begin by pureeing your chosen fruit in a food processor or blender until smooth. Pour cold water into a saucepan and sprinkle gelatin on top evenly. Leave for two minutes.
After your two minutes is up, place the saucepan on low-medium heat and begin stirring until the mixture is liquid. Pour this mixture into your puree, along with the CBD, and mix well.
Place in the fridge to set then enjoy!
We hope you love making these DIY CBD infused products and that your loved ones enjoy them just as much!
