7 Vegan CBD Body Care Gifts for a Romantic Valentine’s Day
CBD came hot onto the scene over the last few years with the promise of reduced anxiety, restful sleep….and yes, even better sex. Just in time for Valentine’s Day, we round up some of the best vegan and cruelty-free CBD products perfect-for-gifting.
But first, an abbreviated education: Short for cannabidiol, CBD is the chemical compound derived from both the marijuana and hemp plants. CBD is now found in everything from lotions to gummies and even in dog food. While the only FDA-approved CBD medication is for the treatment of certain types of epilepsy, people swear that CBD helps with a slew of other health conditions like back pain, skin issues, osteoarthritis and more, including heightened sensation in the bedroom. Many of these sex-centric CBD solutions are said to help increase blood flow, heighten sensitivity, relieve tension and stress.
While for many people CBD is a wonder ingredient (for all of the reasons we mentioned above), it’s also worth noting that cannabis, which contains THC, the psychoactive part of the plant, has also been found to have its own unique benefits and may enhance sex drive. Remember, CBD is legal and can be purchased anywhere and shipped across state lines. But, if you are buying a product that also contains THC you’ll want to check the legality in your state. As of January 2020, cannabis is legal recreationally in 11 states and medically in 31. This handy map below helps show the breakdown.
No matter which CBD (or THC) products you go with, we hope some of these novel offerings spice up your V-Day and beyond.
