Christmas might be over, but you don’t have to wait for the holidays to show a loved one you care about them. And what better way to show a friend that you care for their well-being than getting them something they can sit back and relax with?
If you’re already a hemp user, you’re probably an advocate for it’s healing and anti-anxiety benefits. It has tremendous potential to change people’s lives for the better, whether they’re looking for pain relief or just a little something to help them unwind after a long day.
When it comes to hemp products, the choices are virtually endless and there’s more to it than just hemp oil to gift.
Here are some of our favorites.
For the skincare-obsessed friend: Hemp skincare
The love for glowing, flawless skin is universally common among men and women of all ages. We all crave even-toned skin with unclogged pores and a smooth texture. Since hemp oil has been all the rage among skincare junkies over the past few years, it also makes for an excellent gift option.
Hemp oil is scientifically proven to moderate oil production on the skin. Since it’s ideal for all skin types, hemp oil balances out sebum production and hydrates the skin, keeping it soft and supple.
Excess oil on the skin often leads to clogged pores and acne; hemp oil can thus potentially help reduce flareups and breakouts. The added bonus is that it doesn’t clog the pores. Other than that, hemp oil also soothes inflammation, thanks to its constituent gamma-linolenic acid (GLA). This may help ease any type of skin irritation and conditions like psoriasis and atopic dermatitis.
If that wasn’t enough to convince you, hemp oil also has anti-aging properties for the skin. The oleic acid and linoleic acid that it contains play a crucial role in reducing any fine lines and wrinkles.
Does that mean you need to throw out that expensive moisturizer you just bought? Not really. Hemp oil is usually applied topically. It can be mixed with another carrier oil or moisturizer for added fragrances and flavors
For the tree hugger: Hemp clothing
Yes, you heard it right. Hemp clothing is pretty much a thing, and this inexpensive fabric is on its way to revolutionize the clothing industry. It makes a great gift because hemp clothes are extremely lightweight, affordable, and absorbent. The clothing material is highly durable and works best for untamed and rough environments. Hemp fiber is quite literally known as outdoor clothing. The fibers are obtained from the rugged and flexible parts of the stalk that are braided and woven together to form strands. Other than that, hemp clothing is also incredibly weather-resistant. You don’t have to worry about UV light or mold growth ruining the shirt.
If your friend is all about sustainable living, this gift would truly wow them! Hemp is an eco-friendly crop that has very little nourishment requirements and doesn’t need any pesticides. It also renews the soil every time it grows again. In fact, a hemp plant requires half the amount of water compared to cotton. Almost no raw materials are wasted during the hemp production process.
For the seasoned smoker: Hemp wicks
If your friend is a frequent smoker and you’re concerned about them inhaling too many combustible chemicals, a hemp wick is the way to go! A hemp wick is pretty much the same length as a hemp twine, but it’s coated in beeswax. It’s more like a slow-burning candlewick that can be used along with a bong or pipe.
The good news is that hemp wicks work as a bridge between the lighter and the smoking product. It keeps the product from burning too quickly and keeps the taste intact. As a result, the individual gets smooth and cool hits that feel great and are easy on the lungs. You could choose a hemp wick as per your desired thickness and length. Keep this in mind—the thicker the twine, the slower the flame.
A hemp wick also burns at a lower temperature compared to a lighter, so you get to experience the terpenes better. Also, hemp wicks don’t contribute much to the landfill sites—so they’re environmentally friendly too. The pleasant fragrance also makes it a more desirable option compared to lighters and matches. On the other hand, burning butane is a very ashless and tasteless experience. A good hemp wick skips all of these concerns.
Hemp wicks are easily available online.
