Your CBD Gift Basket: A Friendship Day Gift guide

National Friendship Day, Best Friend Day, International Friendship Day, or whatever you want to call it, is a holiday that encourages people to reconnect with their friends. It’s a day that reminds us that family is important, but friends are family too.

Perhaps this day will also inspire you to make new friends from social circles you don’t normally hang out in. Actions like these are all part of living, learning, and growing. Maybe it’s all it takes for you to find answers to questions that could be troubling you, or perhaps it might be time to reconnect with an old acquaintance, somebody you love but from whom you’ve slowly drifted away from.

The question is: How are you supposed to connect with friends, new and old?

Well, reaching out and being transparent is a good place to start. If you want to go a little further, you might even offer a small gift. Something that shows your friend that you really care about them. It doesn’t have to be anything big, it doesn’t even have to be anything, but if you are looking for something lowkey and still special, then you’ve come to the right place.

We’ve put together a list of CBD gift ideas that could help you accomplish that; nothing too fancy, but not too small either.

The History of National Friendship Day

The holiday was originally founded by the greeting card company Hallmark in 1919. Like any other holiday, the day was originally intended to be an excuse to celebrate friendship by sending each other cards from, yup, Hallmark.

However:

The market for greeting cards is not too expansive. Shortly after the market for the holiday had dried up, the celebration disappeared with it.

It was only until 2011 that July 30th was officially recognized as International Friendship Day by the United Nations, although most countries, including the U.S., actually celebrate Friendship Day on the first Sunday of August. This means Friendship Day 2022 is on August 7th in the U.S. 

Smokable CBD Gift Ideas

CBD is predominantly found and sourced from the hemp plant. Smoking high-CBD hemp flower would allow the consumer to inhale large amounts of CBD content without having to worry about whether or not the product actually contains as much CBD as the label says.

If cigs are not your or your friend’s favorite smokable item, then blunts might be a bit more up your alley. Blunts earned their name because they were originally rolled in a tobacco leaf, but not in this case. 2sies is a two-pack of hemp blunts packed with 2g of CBD-rich hemp flower and rolled using hemp paper to make these a nicotine and tobacco-free product.

Edible CBD Gift Ideas

Edibles are any orally-ingestible consumables containing an accurate amount of CBD. Edibles can be almost anything but in this case, we’re offering you two different gummy options from our best-sellers list.

CBD Oil Gift Ideas

CBD oil was perhaps the first finished good with added value made from hemp CBD extract. Oils are made by infusing a carrier oil with high-CBD extract, usually sourced from hemp in the case of legal products. This oil can then be used for multiple purposes in a variety of consumption methods but is most likely used as a sublingual product. By simply placing a few drops under the tongue, you’ll be able to absorb CBD conveniently and effectively.

Full Spectrum CBD Oil

Vape CBD Gift Ideas

Vaping provides all of the same advantages as smoking CBD; a quick onset and an easy way to manage your doses. However, vaping CBD means you are not inhaling smoke into your lungs, therefore avoiding both a sore throat and a burning sensation.
