From ipsy and Birchbox to Lush Bites and Coffee Crate, subscription boxes make it feel like Christmas comes every month. These services are especially beneficial for those looking to sort through the many product options available, and this benefit applies doubly for those interested in emerging cannabis brands. ClubM and Hemper are among the companies curating cannabis goods, but a new service called The Weekend Box sets itself apart with an exclusive focus on CBD-empowered beauty, health and wellness.
The inaugural January 2018 box featured a "New Year New You" theme packed with CBD goodness. Bella provided a trio of topical products highlighted by the smooth and silky Crema Elegante for the face and body, while those with a big bathtub will make a splash with the Stress Dissolve bath salts and a You're the Bomb bath bomb that explodes with rich essential oils. The Weekend Box also comes with a disposable Select CBD Blend pen and CBD-infused lip balm, while the culinary goodies include Caviar Gold Cavi Tea and Glacé chocolate bonbons. Overall, the debut box offered a well-rounded array of products for elevated wellness, with Crema Elegante and You're the Bomb as the stand outs.
For those who are new to cannabis-based wellness, cannabidiol (CBD) is a naturally occurring compound in cannabis plants that inspired extensive therapeutic research over the past decade. CBD, which actually inhibits the high created by tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), can be smoked, ingested or applied topically for a wide range of potential health benefits. Clinical findings suggest possible applications for anxiety disorders, schizophrenia, inflammation, diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, multiple sclerosis, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), opiate addiction, neurodegenerative disorders, heart disease, Parkinson’s, Alzheimer's, Crohn's disease and certain types of epilepsy and cancer.
Each new Weekend Box comes out around the 15th of the month, and consumers have the option to purchase a single box or a regular subscription. The February box is a Valentine's theme, so guys, if you dropped the ball on the flowers and chocolate, the new Weekend Box might be the last-minute save that keeps you outta the dog house.
The Weekend Box is available here for $99 per month, and prepaying for a six-month subscription qualifies for a 20-percent discount.
