Gift Guide: 8 soothing topical gifts to pamper your loved ones this season

The holiday season is stressful under normal circumstances, nevermind in the midst of a global pandemic. While you may not be able to travel and visit your loved ones this year, you can still find ways to show them you care by sending them something special — especially soothing weed-infused goodies.  Naturally, not everyone on your shopping list will be interested in consuming cannabis, which is where topicals come in.

They can be formulated with tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), cannabidiol (CBD), or tetrahydrocannabinolic acid (THCa), or sometimes a combination of these cannabinoids, but typically they are non-intoxicating.  For those who are skeptical of THC, even when applied to the skin, CBD-based topicals of all types can be found in stores nationally. Anne Louise Burdett, CEO of TOCA, explained that CBD’s anti-inflammatory properties are useful for pain but also to promote overall wellness.  “CBD is known to help with both the actual signaling of pain and our perception of it, making it a powerful plant ally to reduce pain and allow the body to rest and recover if there is some issue or injury,” she said. “There are so many different things going on in our world right now that could produce stress, anxiety, fatigue, tension, it may feel difficult for people to feel like taking some time to feel sexy or relaxed and work on pain or injury is important right now, but it is! … If you’re gifting it to others, they’ll feel your love when they use it.” With so many topicals available today, it can be overwhelming to find the perfect gift.
