Give the Gift of Cannabis

The Holiday Buyer’s Guide from Care By Design

If you’re looking for creative gift ideas for family and friends this year that they might not expect (or think to buy for themselves), consider giving the customized relief that comes with cannabis. Cannabis products come in many forms that allow people to consume it in the way they feel most comfortable. Here are some things to know about choosing the right products based on individual needs, so you can give the perfect gifts to the special people in your life.

Different Styles of Cannabis
The first thing to understand are the different ways a person can consume cannabis. Not everyone likes to inhale it, so consider the wide variety of options available, ranging from edibles to lotions.

Gummies: A yummy way to add cannabis to any wellness routine. These edible treats are pre-dosed, so an adult knows exactly how much CBD and THC they are ingesting. Our gummies are available in three fruit flavors that are vegan and gluten-free. Shop Gummies

Perfect for: Mom or Grandma who loves to bake but suffers from sore hands. Care By Design 18:1 gummies offer a low enough dose to keep her moving (and baking your favorite cookies) comfortably all through the holiday season!

Onset Time: 15 min – 2 hours
Duration of Effects: 2-10 hours

Vapes: The fastest way to feel the effects. Convenient, on-the-go dosing of 100% cannabis oil that can be inhaled until the right feeling is achieved. Shop Vapes

Perfect for: Your brother who works too much and can’t turn off his brain to sleep at night. He simply inhales small doses until he feels just the right amount to relax.

Onset Time: 1-5 minutes
Duration of Effects: 30 min – 4 hours

Tinctures: The most versatile consumption method of full-spectrum CBD to quickly soothe the body and mind with a measured dropper, easily adjustable dosing. Shop Tinctures

Pefect for: That athletic cousin who jumps from mountain biking to weight training sessions, to ease her muscles and prepare for the next challenge.

Onset Time: 15 min – 2 hours
Duration of Effects: 2-10 hours

Soft Gels: The health nut in your life who is already accustomed to taking a daily vitamin will eat these up. Care By Design CBD soft gels are formulated for long-lasting relief with full-spectrum cannabis oil and coconut oil to improve absorption. Shop Soft Gels

Perfect for: Your stressed-out Sister-in-Law who wants to take the edge off but stay present for her kids with a soft gel easily added to her morning supplement routine.

Onset Time: 15 min – 2 hours
Duration of Effects: 2- 10 hours

Topicals: Lotion with a kick. Care By Design’s pain cream, for example, is loaded with cannabinoids and terpenes and is enhanced with aloe vera, shea butter, essential oils, and other botanical ingredients to improve absorption. Shop Topicals

Perfect for: Dad, with that pesky bum knee for which he has a cabinet full of pain creams that just don’t seem to make a difference.

Duration of Effects: 2 – 10 hours

Ratios to Rely On
Our cannabis products come in different ratios of CBD to THC, so you can personalize the experience. When choosing the right gift, you will also need to decide what ratios to give based on each person’s experience level and desired outcomes. So, it’s important to get to know the different proportions and when to choose each.

40:1 | EXTRA-HIGH IN CBD, LOW IN THC
This ratio is specifically formulated to minimize psychoactivity, making it great for those who have little to no experience with cannabis but seek mild stress relief or are suffering from occasional sleeplessness. This is where we would recommend anyone new to cannabis start.

18:1 | HIGH IN CBD, LOW IN THC
A ratio designed for novice and expert cannabis users; it can be perfect for everyday use. This ratio can soothe pain from a variety of activities, so you can start your day off right or help you wind down and easily drift off when occasional sleeplessness keeps you up. This can also be a good starting point for anyone new to cannabis.

8:1 | HIGH IN CBD, MEDIUM-LOW IN THC
Good for experienced cannabis users to find comfort throughout the day with a little psychoactivity. This ratio is excellent for those who are looking for whole-body wellness and occasional stress relief, working well for a daytime pick-me-up.

4:1 | HIGH IN CBD, MEDIUM IN THC
A strong daytime or nighttime ratio designed for relief from occasional stress or sleeplessness. This ratio is great for experienced cannabis users with some tolerance for THC with a little psychoactivity.

2:1 | HIGH IN CBD, MEDIUM-HIGH IN THC
This is best for experienced cannabis users seeking strong daytime or nighttime comfort and a calm feeling with moderate psychoactivity.

1:1 | HIGH IN CBD, HIGH IN THC
Designed for experienced cannabis users who can tolerate more THC for a balanced feeling with some psychoactivity, this ratio is great for those looking to relax at the end of a long day.
