CBD is the most popular wellness trend of recent years. Cannabidiol, a chemical compound found in cannabis sativa plants, interacts with neuroreceptors within the endocannabinoid systems to affect our moods and immune system. The effects vary depending on the individual, but the most common are sleep improvement, anxiety relief, and pain relief. It is being used to treat opioid addiction, epileptic seizures, as well as alleviate symptoms associated with diseases such ALS and diabetes.
The most common benefits of cannabis include decreased anxiety and pain relief.
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration still needs to approve the ingredient, but CBD has been a huge success in the wellness sector since the 2018 passage of the U.S. Farm Bill. It looks like this trend will not be slowing down, with the market estimated to reach $19.5 billion by 2025.
CBD is available in a variety of forms, including chocolates, creams and honey.
After being extracted from cannabis sativa plants, CBD can be prepared for consumption. Most commonly, it is used as a tincture. With a growing market pushing brands to invent, CBD can be found in many forms. Here are the top CBD products you can gift this holiday season. They are also compact and make great stocking stuffers.
