Why wait for a Hallmark holiday to tell you when to show mom you care?
Moms often juggle many roles, like managing the household, taking care of the kids, working outside the home, and supporting their partner, which is why it's important to pay attention to their needs beyond special occasions like Mother's Day or birthdays.
It's not just big gestures like gifts that count — the small, everyday things like lending an ear when mom when needs to vent, helping out with tasks she finds stressful, or simply spending quality time together can make a big difference in showing her that you care.
But if you're looking for a gift that takes mom's well-being into account, we've got you covered.
In this ultimate CBD gift guide, we'll explore the benefits of CBD for busy moms and provide some top-notch gift ideas to help you or your mom achieve a moment of calm in the midst of the chaos.
Why CBD For Moms? Benefits Of CBD
If you're thinking about CBD gifts for moms, you're probably already familiar with the benefits of cannabidiol, the main non-psychoactive cannabinoid found in the hemp plant.
For those who need a bit of a crash course, CBD has become a wildly popular ingredient in the health and wellness space for its potential benefits for supporting stress, sleep, metabolism, sore muscles, skin care, and much more.
CBD and other cannabinoids, found in cannabis interact with the endocannabinoid system, which has receptors located throughout the brain and central nervous system (CNS) to regulate functions such as pain, mood, and appetite.
Let's take a closer look at the evidence supporting high-quality CBD wellness benefits.
CBD For Sleep
A good night's sleep is essential for physical health, as it allows the body to rest, repair and recharge.
CBD products for sleep because CBD is believed to support deep relaxation, calm the mind, and melt tension in the body, which are all factors that can contribute to difficulty falling or staying asleep throughout the night .
CBD For Stress & Mood
CBD may help regulate mood by interacting with various receptors in the brain and nervous system that regulate the stress response. More specifically, CBD is believed to impact mood through its interaction with serotonin receptors.
Serotonin is a neurotransmitter that plays a crucial role in regulating mood and healthy stress levels. Some studies have found that CBD has interactions with serotonin receptors in a way that may increase the availability of serotonin in the brain, leading to an overall improvement in mood .
By improving mood, CBD may help moms to better manage the stress and demands of motherhood, improve their overall well-being, and enjoy a better quality of life.
CBD For Sore Muscles
CBD may also provide pain relief for sore muscles by interacting with the body's pain receptors. CBD has been found to activate receptors in the brain and nervous system, such as the vanilloid receptor (TRPV1 ), which plays a role in pain perception and muscle function. By activating these receptors, CBD may help to reduce the sensation of pain and relieve muscle tension .
Safety Of CBD For Moms
For the most part, high-quality CBD products are considered safe for most people when used as directed, but it's still important to understand the risks that may come with using CBD supplements.
For first-time CBD users, it's recommended that you start dosing low and increase gradually to mitigate the chances of negative effects. Luckily the negative effects like headaches, drowsiness, and upset stomach are temporary and rare.
The biggest safety concern is the lack of quality control in the industry.
The quality and purity of CBD products can vary widely. There are products out there that contain harmful pesticides, heavy metals, and rancid ingredients that can be harmful to your health, which is why it's so important to choose your CBD products carefully and only shop with reputable CBD brands that can provide third-party lab testing for all products.
The Ultimate CBD Gift Guide For Moms
We've compiled a list of the best CBD gifts for your mom or any special mother figure in your life they're sure to love, based on our customer feedback.
1. CBD Sleep Gummies + Melatonin
Melatonin and CBD are a great pairing to support a healthy sleep cycle because they work together to promote relaxation and regulate the sleep-wake cycle.
Melatonin is a natural hormone that helps regulate the body's circadian rhythm, which controls the sleep-wake cycle. CBD, on the other hand, interacts with the body's endocannabinoid system to promote feelings of calmness and relaxation, which can help prepare the body for sleep.
When taken together, melatonin and CBD can enhance each other's effects and provide a more restful and rejuvenating sleep experience.
With 60 softgels in each bottle, your loved one can enjoy restful sleep for months to come. So, if you're looking for a thoughtful gift for the mother figure in your life, the Ultra Sleep Therapy Softgels might be a good choice.

Frequently Asked Questions: CBD As Gifts
1. How to choose the right CBD gift for our mom
Choosing the right CBD gift for your mom depends on her individual preferences and needs. Consider factors like the type of product she may enjoy, such as CBD oil, gummies, or topicals, and what she may use them for, such as relaxation, pain relief, or sleep support.
It's also good practice to check for third-party lab testing to ensure the product is high-quality and pure.
Since we know that CBD products can be very personal, we have a 30-day satisfaction guarantee on all Neurogan products, so if it doesn't work out for them, there's no need to stress — reach out to our support team, who can help you choose another product or process a full refund.
2. Is it legal to give CBD as a gift?
Yes, it is legal to give CBD derived from legalized hemp crops as a gift in most places. However, do our diligence to ensure that the CBD product being gifted is legal in the recipient's country and that it complies with any local laws or regulations.
All Neurogan products are made with Farm Bill-compliant hemp crops, making them legal on a federal level.
3. How do I know if the CBD product I'm giving as a gift is high-quality and safe to use?
To ensure that the CBD product you're giving as a gift is high-quality and safe to use, look for products made from organically grown hemp and to avoid products that contain artificial ingredients or additives.
Next, look for third-party lab test results.
Reputable CBD companies will have their products tested by independent laboratories and will make the results available to consumers. These lab reports will show the levels of cannabinoids in the product, as well as any contaminants such as pesticides or heavy metals.
You can find all Neurogan third-party lab tests on our website or by scanning the QR code of the product label. Lastly, it's a good idea to choose a company that has a strong reputation and positive customer reviews.
4. Why doesn't Neurogan offer CBD bath bombs?
Don't get us wrong, we think bath bombs are a great addition to a relaxing bath. They often contain skin conditioning ingredients like Epsom salt and other essential oils that make at-home baths feel like a spa getaway — but we don't think CBD belongs in bath water.
CBD isn't water soluble and it gets diluted in bath water, which means you're not getting an efficient delivery of CBD and other cannabinoids and terpenes to your endocannabinoid system for the most benefits. We believe there are better ways to make use us CBD oil, which is why we don't sell bath bombs.
