The holidays are usually the most stressful time of year — even without the weight of the pandemic currently pressing down on everyone’s shoulders. But with the recent meteoric rise of CBD taking center stage in the cannabis space, moments of calm and relaxation are easier to access than ever.
And what’s even better than plain ol’ CBD? Unique cannabinoids that play off CBD and THC’s charms and can enhance the peaceful experience. Below, check out products containing two superstars that are rarely talked about: cannabigerol (CBG) and cannabinol (CBN).
Providing a host of soothing effects, you’ll be able to feel the benefits these sleeper cannabinoids have to offer — just in time for the holidays.
