A Serenade with CBD
It makes no difference if you and your significant other have been dating a couple of months or married for years—there is no reason your Valentine’s Day gift shouldn’t be special. A present can be practical, as well as romantic. Planning ahead ensures you’ll pick out the right present. Simply buying a mediocre gift or presenting the not-so-thoughtful gift of cash isn’t good enough for your partner. They deserve a meaningful gift like an intimate couple’s massage, a surprise vacation, or any of the popular JustCBD products.
With the growing popularity of products made from CBD—Cannabidiol that is, is a naturally occurring compound found in the resinous flower of cannabis—a simple and practical gift of CBD gummies, bath bombs, or tinctures are sure to delight any partner. In fact, gummies are now among the most common on the market. What can be better than relaxing with your better half on this special day? After giving your Valentine a jar of festive gummy bears or a bottle of herbal tinctures, you two can fully enjoy the relaxing and calming effects of these CBD products.
CBD goodies offer the same relaxing benefits as marijuana, only without greater THC content that gives you a psychoactive high. They make you feel calm and comfortable—aiding in better sleep cycles, alleviating anxiety, and so much more. With better quality rest, energy levels, memory, and concentration often improve.
Now the question is: Which CBD product will you choose to surprise your Valentine with this year? The various gummy flavors, oils, and bath bomb scents will surely make the perfect gift for any partner.
A Romantic Getaway
When is the last time you got away from the office, the kids, or even your cell phone? Without these distractions, you can finally enjoy one another’s company. If a quick escape is what you are longing for, another gift to consider is a romantic getaway. You and your partner can take a few days and enjoy an exciting adventure. Whether you prefer to travel by plane, train, or automobile, the destination options are endless. Northerners can escape the cold by traveling to the beaches to catch some sun and swim in the ocean. Southerners can take on skiing or enjoy a walk around the city that never sleeps. Wherever you go, the perfect accompaniment to these getaways are CBD gummies or oils to enhance an already relaxing trip.
A Couple’s Massage
A unique way to bond with your significant other on Valentine’s Day is with an intimate couple’s massage. Not only is it rejuvenating, but you and your partner can enjoy it side by side. Additions often include everything from hot tubs and showers to champagne and fruit. If your partner is reluctant to try a professional massage, a 60-minute Valentine’s Day couple’s massage is the perfect way to make the introduction. To increase relaxation, pair this massage with CBD coconut oil or tincture. You can also extend the post-massage euphoria by snacking on CBD dried fruits.
A Sentimental Flick
You don’t have to spend a fortune to create a sentimental gift. Watching the right film is a marvelous way to keep warm with your loved ones. Whether you find it on the cable box, an old DVD, or on one of the many steaming services, there is a seemingly endless supply of flicks to make your Valentine’s Day special. Order takeout and curl up with your partner to enjoy a simple yet romantic evening. CBD honey sticks make for a great pair with an array of beverages and any flavor CBD gummy will satisfy the mid-movie candy cravings.
10 Surprising Facts About CBD
With an increasing number of states legalizing cannabis, products made from cannabidiol (CBD) are becoming more and more mainstream. We wanted to get educated, so we asked two experts to discuss some lesser-known facts about CBD. Here’s what our experts David Kroll, Ph.D., professor of natural products pharmacology at the Colorado University Skaggs School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences in Aurora, CO, and Ryan Vandrey, Ph.D., a professor in the Behavioral Pharmacology Research Unit at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine in Baltimore, told us.
The cannabis plant contains more than 500 chemicals. CBD is just one of them, along with the well-known tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), a chemical that causes intoxication. Hemp refers to cannabis plants that contain 0.3% or less THC, while marijuana is a cannabis plant with any amount over 0.3% THC, a quantity that can cause euphoria, or a “high.” As of 2018, it’s federally legal to grow hemp in the United States. CBD can be extracted from either hemp or marijuana, but if you’re looking for CBD with trace or no THC content, make sure it’s from hemp.
Up until as recently as 2020, Kroll says there was a high probability that a CBD product would have some residual THC, often enough to create a euphoric effect. It’s still possible, of course, but he says many companies have been better about making pure CBD products. Vandrey notes that it also depends on how much and in what formulation you take CBD. For example, if you take 10 times the normal dose of CBD product that has minimal concentrations of THC, you could get intoxicated. This is especially true if you smoke or vape it.
…but CBD that’s extracted from marijuana or has more than 0.3% THC content is federally illegal. To complicate matters, state laws differ. Some states consider it illegal to possess CBD at all, while in Washington D.C. and 11 states, it’s legal to have CBD extracted from either hemp or marijuana. States also regulate CBD products differently, Kroll says. For instance, he says states like Virginia require CBD sold there to only come from authorized growing facilities. Not sure what the laws are where you live? Check with your state’s agricultural department or The National Cannabis Industry Association’s map.
Even though CBD products made from hemp may only contain trace amounts of THC, Kroll says it’s still often enough to show up on a drug test because they are so sensitive. So even if you don’t feel impaired, you could fail a new-job drug test when you’re ingesting or inhaling CBD if it contains THC (it’s less likely with topical products), says Vandrey. A recent study in Vandrey’s lab showed that pure CBD won’t cause a positive drug test, but since consumer CBD products aren’t regulated for their composition, THC content could be higher than you realize, Kroll notes.
CBD products have a range of formulations—oils, edibles, sprays, capsules, and tinctures that you ingest or put under your tongue; smoking or vaping; and creams, lotions, salves, gels, and oils that you rub into your skin. There are even CBD skin patches. Kroll cautions that although topicals don’t have as strong of an effects as when you ingest or inhale them, you should still check your product for THC—if there’s enough (and you use a whole lot of it), it can get into your bloodstream through your skin and make you feel high.
Because CBD is treated as a consumer product rather than a drug—similar to a dietary supplement—“the quality and composition can vary wildly,” Kroll says. Just as the amount of THC can vary, so can the amount of CBD in products, despite what the label says. “When we did an analysis of CBD oils purchased off the Internet, we found a greater-than-800-fold difference in the concentration of CBD in the liquid,” Vandrey explains. There is an FDA-approved CBD seizure medication (Epidiolex), but you can’t assume other CBD products will be equal or work the same, says Vandrey.
CBD products generally come in three forms: pure CBD, full-spectrum, and broad-spectrum. Pure CBD is 100% CBD, though even these can have a small amount of THC, Kroll says. Full-spectrum CBD contains extracts from all the chemicals in the cannabis plant, including THC. Broad-spectrum CBD is similar, but it doesn’t include all the chemicals and it doesn’t have any THC. “There is anecdotal evidence for what’s called ‘the entourage effect,’” says Kroll, a belief that taking the chemicals together increases their effectiveness, which is why some people choose full- or broad-spectrum CBD. Research hasn’t yet proven how well it works.
Keep in mind that the FDA has not approved CBD for anything other than rare forms of seizure disorders. Still, believers use CBD most frequently for chronic pain and anxiety. “For anxiety, it appears that CBD works through a serotonin receptor called 5HT1A, similar to the prescription drug buspirone (Buspar),” Kroll says. For pain, he says CBD seems to work as an anti-inflammatory, as well as working directly on ion channels that transmit pain impulses. “It’s important to know that CBD does not act on the same receptors that THC does, which is why it’s non-intoxicating,” he explains.
Studies done with the FDA-approved Epidiolex show that it can cause drug interactions with other epilepsy drugs, as well as medications like certain ones used for anxiety, hypertension, and allergies. “We know from those clinical studies that CBD can inhibit some of our drug metabolizing enzymes for other drugs,” says Kroll. The problem is that we don’t yet know how the lower doses of CBD found in consumer products may affect other medications you’re taking, which is why both Kroll and Vandrey say it’s so important to talk to your pharmacist or doctor before you use CBD.
“What dose works for what condition? We don’t have that level of science yet for anxiety or pain,” Kroll says. And remember, when you hear CBD is helpful for multiple health conditions, “it’s not always going to be the same product or the same dose that would be helpful for all of those things,” Vandrey cautions. In other words, you can’t assume that what seems to be effective for seizures will be the same for pain or anxiety. Kroll says that as long as your pharmacist has given you the all-clear regarding drug interactions, it’s OK to experiment with CBD.
