How To Make Your Own CBD Advent Calendar

With the holidays quickly approaching, you might be looking for a fun way to incorporate CBD into the winter season. Why not try a homemade CBD Advent calendar? It makes a great gift for someone, or fun and useful decoration for your own home!

Why CBD? 

If you haven’t caught on to the wonders of CBD, don’t worry. If you look closely, it is probably present all around you - coffee shops, health stores, online shops, and even pet supply stores carry different CBD products.

CBD is one of the cannabinoids found in the hemp and marijuana plant. It has many potential beneficial properties, but unlike another famous cannabinoid THC, it does not cause a high. CBD is many folks’ natural go-to remedy because it does not produce dependency and does not build up a tolerance. CBD is also considered legal on the Federal level, as long as it is derived from hemp.

Many people choose to take CBD to potentially help with sleep issues, anxiety, pains, inflammation, skin issues, and even seizures. There are many different types of CBD products, and you can choose one depending on what types of results you are looking for. When picking out products for an advent calendar, go for small-sized options like CBD mints, capsules, gummies, cookies, and candies

How to Make an Advent Calendar

One of our favorite ways to make an Advent calendar is by using empty matchboxes. Start by gathering all your supplies. You will need 25-31 empty matchboxes, glue, patterned paper, tape, stickers, and some markers or paints. 

Now it is time to decorate the matchboxes. Remove the drawers from each matchbox and decorate the outer shells with markers, paints, tapes, patterned papers, and stickers. Then decorate the front of each drawer to match the shell. 

Use paints or markers to add numbers to the front of each drawer. Now it is time to fill each drawer with exciting CBD treats!

The final step is arranging the matchboxes in a stack. You can choose a simple square or rectangle shape, or if you feel creative, you can go for a Christmas tree shape. You can secure the matchboxes to each other by gluing them together. 

The finished product can go on the table, or you can thread some ribbon through the top box and hang up your creation on the wall. 

Get Creative

There are many other ways of making an advent calendar. You can experiment with empty toilet paper rolls or small jars. The important thing is to let your personality and creativity shine through and to have fun!

And the icing on the cake is that each day’s treat will bring not only a delight but also a potential benefit to your body and overall health. And who wouldn’t want that during the holidays!
