The Best CBD and Hemp Products of 2021
CBD and hemp products have come a long way since that janky rope bracelet you used to wear. These gifts are all about indulgence.
Likely, you’ve heard of hemp oil (often conflated with CBD oil), the purported miracle ingredient that you can find in everything from shampoos to face creams to bath bombs. And all hype aside, it really does work: It’s a rich emollient that’s been around for ages and softens and hydrates your face, body, and scalp. The market is glutted, and we’ve sorted through the offerings to bring you a tightly curated list of the best CBD products and hemp products, from luxurious skin creams to fragrances to sheets, that make great gifts.
“CBD oil, sometimes referred to as hemp seed oil, comes from the hemp plant, which is a relative to marijuana. It has been used for decades in skincare and is particularly useful in treating conditions like dry skin and eczema,” says Dr. Joshua Zeichner, the director of cosmetic and clinical research at Mount Sinai Hospital’s department of dermatology.
CBD skincare products can balance out your skin without clogging your pores, and give you thicker hair — all without getting you high. The hemp- and CBD-infused products on our list deliver on what they promise to do, whether it’s to soften rough skin or give you shinier hair; we haven’t covered edibles here, since the FDA does not regulate dietary supplements.
The Best Hemp and CBD Skincare Gifts
We first encountered this brand pre-COVID, when in-person meetings were a thing, and were duly impressed. The packaging alone is a standout, because each jar looks like a work of art and can be reused in numerous ways once empty. But it's what's inside that counts: Broad spectrum CBD coupled with plumeria, jasmine, vetiver, and cedarwood for the ultimate bath soak.
It's about damn time one of the best skin care brands you can buy got into the CBD game. And game-changing, it is. Ideal for sensitive, oily, and acne-prone skin, this gorgeous product combines full-spectrum CBD (cannabis sativa leaf extract) and colloidal silver. It's great for skin that's inflamed, irritated, and otherwise just having a bad day.
If you could bottle the perfect way to wake up, this would be it. Thanks to its sparkly citrus scent, it's a mood booster. And because it's made with full-spectrum CBD, it's also deeply moisturizing and can be used all over your body. Day and night.
You can't get much fancier when it comes to a CBD gift set. This one includes the Enlightenment Serum, which is made with 100mg of CBD. Plus, there's the Afterglow, a blend of four types of hyaluronic acid, plus 500mg broad spectrum hemp CBD and vegan collagen. And of course, Night Magic, which is loaded with 300mg of broad spectrum hemp CBD that you dab on before bedtime. It's all from a clean beauty brand co-founded by a veteran of The Honest Company.
Refreshingly woodsy, this bath and body oil is made with 400mg of full-spectrum, organic and hemp-derived CBD. You can use it straight on the skin, or put a few drops into the bath. It's from a brand specializing in organic and fair-trade skincare.
Grassy, green, and fresh, this gender-neutral scent contains 500 mg of full-spectrum, hemp-derived CBD oil per 50ml bottle. The brand uses all naturally derived ingredients (meaning nothing synthetic in their products), and this particular fragrance manages to be both uplifting and calming.
The Best Hemp Bedding
Particularly perfect for anyone who runs hot at night, these sheets will feel cool in the summer — but also warm in winter. They're made from quality hemp harvested from farms in China and sewn with hemp thread, and the tasteful, neutral colors let the hemp's rich texture shine through. They feel like linen, but are much tougher and more durable.
