Know a friend who you think would love incorporating CBD into their life, but is overwhelmed by the number of options out there? With so many different ways to experience the beneficial effects of CBD, it can be hard to choose just one…or even three.

But maybe you don’t have to! 

With a CBD Gift Basket, your loved ones can enjoy the benefits of cannabis in all its various forms of glory. And if you’re not sure what to include, the Brothers Apothecary is here to help you build the perfect basket. But first, let’s talk about the basics of CBD.

What Exactly Is CBD?

Cannabidiol, more widely known as CBD, is one of the more than 100 cannabinoids that make up the Cannabis sativa plant. While closely related to THC, CBD does not cause the psychoactive effects associated with THC.

Is CBD Safe?

CBD is considered safe, even at high doses. If you or your loved one is new to CBD, however, the receiver of your gift basket will want to start with a low dose of five to ten mg per day and work their way up another five to ten mg at a time. 

This will allow them to find the dose that best fits their needs.


You want to ensure your CBD products are third-party tested and certified. This can provide you with the confidence that only high-quality ingredients are included, the dosage listed on the label accurately reflects what is inside the product, and that there is no more than the legal limit of THC–which is less than 0.3 percent– in any full-spectrum CBD or hemp product.

Here at The Brothers Apothecary, all of our ingredients are organic, locally sourced, and are certified through third-party lab testing.

Does CBD Really Work? What Can I Use It for?

CBD can support a wide range of body functions and boost your mental and physical well-being. Learn more about the different benefits CBD can provide below!

Stress and Tension

CBD has a unique ability to work with the endocannabinoid system (ECS), a messaging system in our bodies that uses naturally produced endocannabinoids and CB receptors to help regulate discomfort, mood, stress, and other essential functions. 

When CBD is introduced to this system, it can partner with endocannabinoids to help strengthen and prolong their effects throughout the body, including reducing stress and tension.

When the body is experiencing high levels of stress hormones, the endocannabinoid anandamide (AEA) is produced. 

AEA can then bind to Cb1 receptors in the central nervous system to send chemical messages to and from the brain that help lower stress levels and promote calmness throughout the body. 

CBD can also help prolong the effects of endocannabinoids produced within the body, reducing further signs of tension.

Muscle Support

When CBD is absorbed into the body, it can partner with endocannabinoids at CB receptors within the muscles. CBD is actually thought to prolong the effects of endocannabinoids by blocking enzymes from breaking them down. 

So, when your endocannabinoids are hard at work calling on the immune system to bring support to swollen and sore muscles, CBD can help increase the lifespan of temporary relief.

Relief from Discomfort

Similarly, CBD can partner with the ECS to reduce general or localized body discomfort. CBD can also help support the immune system by reducing swelling, which is often the cause of discomfort in the joints, neck, or back. 

What Types of CBD Should I Include in a Gift Basket?

If your friend has been complaining of body tension, be sure to include a calming lotion, scrub, or salve in their gift basket.

CBD Lotion or Salve

These CBD-infused topicals can be massaged directly onto sore muscles. CBD will be absorbed through the skin and move to the CB receptors within the tense muscles nearby, providing fast temporary relief in minutes. 

When paired with other antioxidant-rich oils and vitamins, these topicals feel great on the skin and moisturize and nourish the skin while working its way deeper into those muscles. It’s a win-win for your recipient!

Our Soothing Green Tea Body Butter or Energizing Earl Grey Scrub can help provide your friend with the support they’ve been craving.

CBD Tea or Matcha

If your friend drinks herbal tea, you can’t go wrong with our selection of CBD teas.

Unlike oils and topicals that use CBD extract, our teas at The Brothers Apothecary consist of only full flower, whole-plant CBD. This means our tea contains the phytonutrients, terpenes, and minor cannabinoids from the cannabis plant. 

This allows for the entourage effect, which takes place when the different components of the plant work together to enhance the full body wellness benefits of CBD. 

If your friend is always on the go with places to be, a caffeinated tea can help center them and promote alertness and focus, like our Mighty Matcha or Chai Awakening

If they are more in need of something to cozy up with at the end of a long day that will help them wind down and relax, try our Golden Dream instead.

CBD Honey

Whether your friend is a full-on foodie or your average snacker, Organic CBD Honey is a delightful treat they are sure to enjoy. It is the perfect natural sweetener to balance out a tea, drizzle over a fruit bowl or pancakes, or snack on by the spoonful. 

CBD Honey brings everything that regular honey offers while also providing an added boost to your ECS. 

With our Wildflower CBD Honey, you can keep it simple and classy or add a little extra kick to your gift basket with the Sweet Heat Aji Limo Chili CBD Honey

And for an option with even more health benefits, check out our antioxidant-rich Orange Turmeric CBD Honey. The bright notes of orange and turmeric can help provide immunity support while also giving the honey a luxurious flavor.  

If your gift receiver simply loves honey, our Lemon Ginger and Orange Turmeric Honey Drops are perfect for those who prefer a little more convenience with an easy to enjoy CBD gummy.

CBD Balm

CBD balms are wax-based topicals applied directly to the lips or skin, providing feel-good hydration. Your friend won’t be able to get enough of our nourishing Buzz Balm, which can be used daily under the eyes or as a moisturizer for cracked lips.

CBD Oil Roller

If your friend is into burning incense, they are sure to love our CBD Oil Rollers. 

These topical CBDs are made essential, releasing aromas when rolled along the skin that may help enhance the senses. 

Consider the Restful Roller, made with chamomile and lavender oils for a crisp and floral scent, to help your friend with relaxation and sleep. 

Or, if your friend is spiritual, they’ll fall in love with the Insight Roller. Made with ylang-ylang oils, clary sage, white fir, and jasmine, this roller is crafted to reset energy, improve mental clarity, and help provide insight when facing a mental roadblock or challenge. 

CBD Protein Powder

If your friend is an avid gym-goer or even just beginning to dabble in weight training, including a CBD Protein Powder could do wonders for their post-workout routine.

CBD contains anti-swelling properties, which can help reduce the discomfort of sore muscles post-workout and also help speed up the muscle recovery process. As a macronutrient, protein supports healthy muscle growth and helps refuel the body with a much-needed energy boost. 

And if your friend is a chocolate-lover, you can make their exercise routine even sweeter with our Magickal Mushroom and Dutch Cocoa Protein Powder. This delicious plant-based protein powder is filling and easily digestible, with a slightly earthy and sweet flavor. 


With The Brothers Apothecary gift basket, your friend can experience the full range of beneficial CBD has to offer for months to come!
