It’s the time of year when the panic sets in over what to get dear old dad. What does he really enjoy? Has he dropped any hints? What do you get the man who has everything and says he doesn’t need anything?
When another pair of novelty socks just won’t cut it, CBD comes to the rescue. The team at Handpicked CBD has chosen 12 CBD products, perfect for the dad in your life this Father’s Day ranging from £5 to £50.
For the dad with a sweet tooth
Thankfully CBD pairs well with sweets and chocolate. If you’re planning on introducing dad to CBD this year, these gummies are going to be a hit.
Just CBD are the makers of some of the most popular CBD gummies available in the UK in 2021. They have all different types, shapes and levels of sweetness. If your dad is partial to a fizzy cola bottle, he’ll love these sour and tangy jelly worms. With 16mg CBD per sweet, they could even help to keep those stress levels at bay!
For the dad who trains
You don’t have to be a professional athlete to pick up a niggle or two in training. If your dad is gearing up for the Euros or Olympics like he’s competing for real, he’s going to need some help in recovery.
A CBD-infused protein powder will help repair muscle tissue post-workout, while a sports gel will aid recovery and reduce inflammation from the outside.
Fourfive CBD is a British brand formulated by former Wales international rugby player Dom Day and England’s George Kruis. The pair personally discovered the healing properties of CBD in recovery when they were sidelined by injuries while playing for Saracens. Fourfive developed this icy hot joint gel to soothe muscles and bring down any inflammation on the joints.
For the dad who quit smoking
The COVID-19 pandemic has put more of a focus on our health and according to the NHS Stop Smoking service, more Brits successfully quit the bad habit for good when news of the pandemic spread in 2020. Great news! Chances are in this modern age that your dad quit using an e-cigarette device.
Aside from zero-nicotine e-liquids and pods, did you know you can get CBD vapes too? Vaping is endorsed by Public Health England to be 95% less harmful than smoking, while providing a similar experience, without the nasties.
If your dad has embraced the vape, this pod from Cannacares will tick all of the boxes this Father’s Day. Plus, it will even help him nod off after a busy day!
For the dad who loves tattoos
CBD is best known for its anti-inflammatory properties. From acne to aches, there’s a CBD topical out there to help. The same goes for tattoo recovery. These days it’s not uncommon for a tattoo artist to recommend a CBD balm or salve, which is like your average petroleum jelly product, but with the added benefit of inflammation-reducing CBD.
If your dad is into ink and has plans for adding a new tattoo, this CBD balm is sure to help in the days and weeks that follow. Enriched with coconut oil, beeswax, lavender and eucalyptus oil, this small but mighty jar is packed with skin soothing ingredients.
For the dad who thinks CBD is cannabis
Ah yes, the one member of the family who needs convincing that your nighttime CBD oil won’t, in fact, get you high. This is often a hard subject to broach, especially with a parent who you know could really benefit from having CBD in their life if they just gave it a go.
If you think this Father’s Day is the right time to sit dad down for a lesson on CBD, go easy with a product that will introduce him, not shock him. (Best keep that bag of Nuggies for later). CBD gummies like this tub from Naturecan are a safe bet, and they’re vegan too.
If CBD gummies aren’t dad’s style, how about a simple CBD oil? This spray top from Provacan is manufactured to the highest standards known to CBD makers, and it’s backed by research which goes a long way when presenting your case.
And finally… for the dad who LOVES his CBD
If this is your old man, he sounds pretty cool. If your father figure knows the basics of CBD already then he’ll take impressing. Show him there’s more to CBD than just oil. Go all out with a selection of goodies he’ll really appreciate!
