With Father’s Day just a few days away and the Covid-19 pandemic meaning that many of you won’t be able to spend this Sunday with the father figure in your life, we’ve rounded up some CBD gift ideas to help you show your appreciation from a little further away.
For the Mr Nice in your life take inspiration from the original Mr Nice and counter-culture hero, Howard Marks. In 2017, The Howard Marks Foundation teamed up with Equinox International to develop the Mr Nice CBD range to celebrate Marks’s life and role as a champion of the global cannabis industry. The result is a range of premium CBD oils, gummies, coffee and even bath bombs. Available in 5% and 10% easy-to-use stopper bottles, its full spectrum extract CBD oil demonstrates the brand’s commitment to high-quality standards and overseeing cultivation from start to finish including its CO2 extraction method.
New kids on the block, CBII launched its highly anticipated CBD capsules and skincare range earlier this year and they were well worth the wait. CBII is sourced from legally grown hemp plants in the EU, made in Switzerland and bottled here in the UK. Recently joining its three strengths of CBD oils are CBD capsules that offer an easy and tasteless way for your dad to get his daily dose of CBD (you can take up to three capsules daily) as well as added vitamins, minerals and ingredients. Whether they’re always on the go or need a boost after 18 holes, CBII’s Move capsules contain high-quality full spectrum CBD plus added vitamin C, turmeric and black pepper oil to support your father’s active lifestyle, energy-yielding metabolism, your immune system and collagen formation for the normal function of cartilage and bones.
Green Times Brewing CBD Session IPA, £36/12 pack
While you can’t take your dad to the pub for a pint to celebrate Father’s Day this year, you can still toast to him with a 12 pack from Green Times Brewing. Established in 2018, Green Times specialises in making fresh brews in the UK that combine the taste of craft beers with the wellbeing benefits of cannabis oil extract. As hops and cannabis belong to the same cannabaceae family, they believe they’re the perfect brewing partners. This easy-drinking gluten-free IPA offers a refreshing lime, mango and tropical finish, too. There’s also an alcohol-free version to accommodate all tastes and dads out there.
With more than 20 years of healthcare knowledge and some of the world’s top cosmetic biochemists making up its team, it’s not surprising that doctor-backed Dr.Kerklaan has caught the attention of the likes of Vogue and Rolling Stone magazine. It was also one of the first CBD brands to be stocked by Selfridges.
This Relief Stick combines all that clinical know-how in a handy size for your dad’s travel bag. Featuring full spectrum hemp CBD, it provides targeted relief for pain, discomfort and stiffness on the go. It also offers a cooling effect thanks to peppermint and eucalyptus essential oils.
Paso CBD Vape Pen, £28.45
We’ve long been fans of another Selfridges’ favourite Paso CBD’s chocolate treats, which I’m sure your dad will appreciate too. It’s not all they have to offer though. For the vapers in your life, Paso’s handy CBD Vape Pen comes with three different voltage settings and a choice of CBD cartridges (Paso’s Mango Kush and Amnesia Haze are recommended for those who prefer a fruitier, citrusy taste, but it’s also compatible with 510 universal cartridges). As well as its gift-worthy packaging, it comes with a USB charger and a battery that lasts for around 100 puffs, depending on the voltage setting.
