There’s no denying that cannabidiol, otherwise known as CBD, has taken the world by storm. From the first CBD-based medicines being approved by the NHS to Kim Kardashian’s CBD-themed baby shower, CBD is everywhere - and for good reason, too. The chemical compound has been celebrated by people across the world and in many different industries, with its anxiety and pain-relieving qualities making it an increasingly popular natural remedy.
For this reason, CBD has been infused into many different products across the globe. Demand for these products only seems to be increasing, which isn’t surprising when you consider the long list of health benefits it has been linked to. Here, we take a look at some of the most interesting CBD-infused products you’ll find on shelves across the world!
While you may have heard of CBD oil or CBD-infused face cream, you may be surprised by the concept of a cannabidiol burger. In fact, CBD burgers are definitely one of the most unusual products available! Nevertheless, this is exactly what Carl’s Jr., a fast-food restaurant in Los Angeles, trialed in April 2019. The restaurant infused CBD into their signature burger sauce in a bid to see how customers would respond and is looking to see whether or not it could become a permanent menu option.
CBD TOILET PAPER
Many people look for soft alternatives to standard wood fiber or recycled paper toilet paper, so it’s no surprise that hemp loo roll has become popular; as a plant with naturally soft fibers, hemp toilet paper makes for a kinder alternative to many well-known brands. On top of this, hemp toilet paper is also kinder to the planet! It’s biodegradable and recyclable and has therefore caught the eye of people looking to adopt more sustainable habits.
For those of us with a sweet tooth, CBD-infused sweets could be the ideal way to experience the full benefits of the cannabinoid. There are many different types available, from CBD gummies to infused chocolates, each produced to help you unwind and sleep better. CBD-infused gummies are also said to carry a range of other health benefits, such as brightening your skin and helping your body recover after exercise, but it all depends on the brand in question and how much cannabidiol has been used.
That’s right - CBD-infused toothpicks are now on the market! Designed and produced by a company called Ignite, these CBD toothpicks are designed to help you keep your teeth clean while encouraging the absorption of cannabidiol into your bloodstream. You release the compounds by chewing the toothpicks, and the idea is that they’ll provide relief from any tooth pain you’re experiencing.
CBD CREAM AND MOISTURISER
Cannabidiol has become a popular ingredient in many skincare products and beauty cosmetics which is due to the fact it’s been associated with anti-ageing and anti-inflammation. As a result, CBD is commonly used as a treatment for acne and other inflammatory skin conditions. For this reason, many skincare brands now use CBD as an ingredient in their creams and moisturizers which can be applied directly to the skin. From day cream to muscle balm, there are many different types of creams and moisturizers which use cannabidiol as a primary ingredient.
CBD BATH BOMBS
If you love nothing more than running a hot bubble bath, you’ll be pleased to know that CBD-infused bath bombs now exist. As we’ve mentioned, CBD is commonly used as an ingredient in cosmetics due to its anti-inflammatory and relaxing properties, making it an ideal component for use in bath bombs. CBD-infused bath bombs are also designed to help people get to sleep at night, by relaxing muscle pain and softening your skin, making them ideal for use just before bed.
CBD DOG TREATS
Could your furry friend benefit from a little extra relaxation? If yes, you’ll be pleased to hear that CBD dog treats are now on the market. With research suggesting a link between cannabidiol and pain and anxiety relief, it is no surprise that dedicated pet owners are now turning to hemp-derived supplements for their animal friends. CBD has also been associated with a reduction in inflammation and joint pain, which are two ailments commonly diagnosed in active dogs.
For this reason, companies such as Canna-Pet have produced CBD oil capsules and hemp-infused biscuits for dogs, alongside other CBD supplements for cats and horses.
While CBD gummies have become particularly popular on the high street, you may be surprised to read that cannabidiol crisps are also available. It has been proven that ingesting CBD is the most effective way to reap its benefits, and with crisps being one of the world’s best-loved snacks, there’s no tastier way to enjoy cannabidiol. There are plenty of different flavors available for you to enjoy, so whether you’re a fan of cheese and onion or ready salted, you’re bound to find the perfect savory snack for you.
As we live in a world of coffee drinkers, it’s not surprising that cannabinoid-infused coffee is perhaps the most common CBD product on the market. Cafes, bars and restaurants across the globe have been experimenting with different ways of including cannabinoids on their menu, and brewing delicious CBD lattes and cappuccinos is an innovative way to do so.
Surprisingly, CBD coffee has become particularly well-liked by people with higher levels of anxiety. While people who deal with stress and anxiety are often encouraged to decrease their caffeine intake, some people have reported feeling the relaxing effects of cannabidiol alongside the alertness associated with drinking coffee.
Could CBD-infused clothing take over the fashion industry? It’s certainly possible, with brands such as Devan Chemicals infusing cannabidiol into their textiles. The aim has been to create clothing that acts as a sleep aid, with the CBD breaking down and becoming absorbed by the skin when the clothes are worn.
Currently, the scientific research in this area is limited, and it’s therefore unclear whether or not cannabinoid-infused clothing could compete with products such as CBD-infused drinks and gummies. Despite this, it’s certainly interesting to see such innovative uses of cannabidiol, and it might not be long until cannabidiol-infused clothing hits the high street.
We’ve spoken about CBD toothpicks, but how do you feel about cannabinoid toothpaste?

In recent years, more and more companies have experimented with cannabis infusions but this particular product is set to shake up the oral hygiene market significantly.

With all the taste and refreshment of an alcoholic drink but without the horrible hangover, CBD-infused mocktails are the perfect drink for people looking to unwind.
Many people assume that cannabidiol drinks have a strange or unpleasant taste, but with the right flavorings, this doesn’t have to be true! In fact, there are many ways to flavor CBD drinks to make sure they are both delicious and refreshing.
