If you’re a fan of a chocolate advent calendar and CBD, you might want to get behind a crowdfunder campaign to create the perfect blend this Christmas! There’s already such a wealth of unusual or novelty CBD products on the market – from rum to bathbombs, lipbalm to face cream, and even tampons – that we’re frankly surprised no one’s thought of this sooner.
The campaign, which its founder James Ware claims would be the world’s first CBD chocolate advent calendar, plans to launch this month assuming the requisite £11,000 is raised by backers. It’s set to feature handmade British milk chocolate, packed with 10mg of CBD (at the UK legal level of 0.2% THC or less) hidden behind 24 doors. It’s designed to promote wellness over the stressful festive period, and each backer who offers £25 or more will receive their own calendar, assuming the target is met. Otherwise, as always with crowdfunding, you get your money refunded in full. There’s also a benefit to bulk orders, with 10 calendars for £202 at a total cost of £4.80 per calendar. Backers must be aged 18 or over.
It’s certainly a novel spin on the advent market, which has already seen a huge boom in beauty-based products (at massive prices) over the past five years.
