Today the CBD market is overwhelmed with the different kinds of CBD-infused products. Starting with the most well-known CBD oil and finishing with the most bizarre options, such as CBD-infused mattresses. Even Coca-Cola couldn’t stand aside and decided to use cannabidiol as their marketing tool, but later on, claimed that they do not plan to enter the cannabis industry yet. Not the worst branding strategy anyway, considering that the CBD market is on the spotlight right now.
As the market competition continues to grow, many producers try to come up with the ideas that will outstand them from the rest of their competitors. And sometimes they go too far. For that reason, we advise you to not believe in the miraculous properties of all these quirky options. Notwithstanding the fact that the cannabidiol, as a chemical compound of cannabis Sativa has been proved to contain many beneficial properties, we advise you to conduct proper research on your own and only after that decide whether you want to purchase any of those products.
It’s likely you have already heard a lot about the CBD oil and other dietary supplements. Here we won’t dedicate too much attention to this topic. On the contrary, we want to talk about the most obscure products that you can find on the CBD marketplace today. Some CBD applications may appear strange to you so that you can judge yourself: do these products really serve a purpose or producers just want to stay trendy. Don’t forget to give them some credit for their creativity though!
The most unusual CBD-infused products you can find today
For easier navigation, we decided to put those products into categories. So, let’s see what we have found for you.
Self-care CBD products
- Shampoos and hair conditioners
CBD is everywhere. So the brands that produce beauty products decided to take their share on the market. They claim that CBD’s anti-inflammatory properties help to solve topical irritation. While fatty acids that are also present in the hemp seed oil help to nourish and hydrate the hair and scalp. May be true, may be not. You can try it yourself.
- Hand sanitizers
Obviously, it is more convenient to use alcohol-based hand sanitizers instead of washing hands all the time. Sanitizers kill germs, bacteria, viruses, and other microorganisms more effectively. Manufacturers that produce CBD hand sanitizers include more than just the CBD for the product to work. Most of these products include disinfectants, such as ethyl alcohol or isopropyl alcohol. This way, the CBD kills some of the bacteria, and the ethyl alcohol gets the rest.
As per statistics, one in ten women experiences period cramps. Some companies care about their customers so much, so they try to find the best available solutions to help women deal with painful periods.

The company claims that this product was created with care for sustainability issues. Thanks to CBD infusion, it becomes a great alternative to traditional painkillers. Also, these tampons are both hypoallergenic and pesticide-free. They say that this is enough to offer pain relief without any side-effects.

Face masks have become a routine part of beauty care. Today you can find hundreds of different types of face masks on a different basis: it might be cotton, gelly, creamy, clay-based and many others. And of course, brands didn’t miss their chance and created CBD-infused masks. Most of them are made with the addition of THC-free hemp oil and some plant extracts. As they promise, it helps to keep your skin healthy and hydrated. The producers also claim that the mask wraps the skin to prevent active ingredients from evaporating, allowing for complete penetration to visibly improve the appearance of fine lines, pores and make the skin more appealing.
Those who smoke cannabis now have an opportunity to brush your teeth with it. Not bad. So, what’s so impressive about this cannabis-infused mouth care? CBD has anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, and anti-fungal properties, and it also works as a bone stimulant. It can also repair any damage that’s been done to your teeth and is also capable of preventing cavities and decay. Plus, it improves bad breath and whitens your teeth. And this is not the end. It can also give your immune system a boost and prevent acne, heart disease, and enhance your complexion. Wow. Impressive description. It seems like it can cure anything.
It is said that CBD-infused toothpicks may provide soothing, calming effects and may even promote day-to-day focus and general well-being. It can suck on both ends for full effects up to 45 minutes. All you have to do is chew on either end of the picks, and the CBD is released into the oral region. This allows for quality hemp extracts to be released into parts of the body that need it the most.
Yes, you read it right. There are CBD-infused lubes available on the market. Manufacturers say that CBD lube might be an alternative to the other top lubricants and could address some particular problems people have in the bedroom. CBD is believed to decrease inflammation, increase blood flow, and help with muscle relaxation, which might make such lubricants a reliable option for women who have pain during intercourse. But doctors recommend talking to your physician before trying out a lubricant with CBD since it could potentially interfere with any prescriptions you’re taking.
- Toilet paper
Yes, one US-based company produces sustainable tree-free toilet paper made from hemp. By selling their product, they want to save the trees. Anything to save the trees and the planet!
So, after you took care of yourself, you can start buying CBD products for your house. Let’s see what manufacturers have to offer in this niche.
CBD products for your home and wardrobe
- CBD-infused mattresses
As a technology, the producers use the microcapsules that are applied to the fabric. These microcapsules burst through friction (such as lying on the bed) and release the hemp-based CBD throughout the bed. It is promised to help people who have trouble sleeping due to reasons such as chronic pain, stress, or anxiety. We wonder if it is able to catch the demons during the night. Producers keep this information in secret.
- Home textiles
Home textiles, such as bedsheets that are infused with cannabidiol. These are promised to relieve anxiety and stress and help you fall asleep faster and stay asleep longer. So when buying a CBD mattress isn’t convenient enough, you can go for bed sheets either. This is a double shot.
- Bedsheets and beds for pets
One US-based company has produced a line of bedsheets, and pet beds infused with CBD. So now customers can not only buy CBD bedsheets for themselves but also for their smaller friends. The initial collection may last up to 30 washings. The company is also launching a line of polyester-filled dog and cat pet beds in various sizes with removable CBD infused covers.
- Workout wears
Some brands go even further and create CBD sports clothes that, as they say, have healing properties and can fight soreness. Here’s how they explain how it works: CBD droplets are embedded in the fabric, and then released onto the skin with friction and movement. Sounds too nice to be true. And yes, there’s no scientific evidence to the theory that CBD in clothes can actually reduce pain. But for sure there will be customers who will fall for it.
CBD-infused candles became a new trend in aromatherapy. Brands are promising to reduce anxiety and transform the environment into a stress-free zone. You can use these candles for massages for soreness and pain and set the right mood. CBD-candles are mostly made with different scents, such as coconut, eucalyptus, ambrosia, palo santo and many more.
Well, CBD for self-care is here, home is full of CBD products either. What about the tastiest part? Let’s see what products with CBD we can try out.
- Potato chips
Producers say that CBD chips are an excellent choice for those who are craving for something salty and at the same time want to keep consistent ingestion of non-psychoactive CBD throughout the day.
Now chickpea-lovers can try CBD-infused hummus. According to the brand that produces this product, it is not only one of its most popular offerings, but also the tastiest. It notes that the authentic flavours are taken from an old family hummus recipe, which dates back several generations.
- Pet food
Today, CBD supplements are in high demand in human markets. After the US government enforced Farm Bill in 2018, which allowed legal production and industrial hemp, many pet owners embraced the idea of using CBD to help improve their pet’s overall health and treat a variety of health conditions such as anxiety, digestive issues, chronic pain, mobility issues, inflammation or skin irritation. Among available options you can find organic CBD biscuits, CBD strips, CBD chews, CBD tinctures and other pet treats. Although the FDA has approved one cannabis-derived and three cannabis-related drugs for use in humans, it has not approved hemp-derived substances for use in animals.
- Chewing gums
Combining CBD with chewing gum and mints sounds like a tricky marketing play. But manufacturers claim that CBD-infused gums are an excellent way to deliver CBD into our circulatory systems. They say that cannabidiol absorbs into our bloodstream quickly and efficiently and in addition has a pleasant subtle flavour.
As you can see, there is an enormous amount of different CBD products available on the market today. Some of them are really effective and bring many health benefits. But sometimes in the pursuit of bigger profits, manufacturers try to outstand their competitors in the most ridiculous ways by making not very trustworthy and scientifically-approved products. All they do is only a loud headline that does not have anything behind it. From our side, we advise you to conduct proper research on any CBD product that you are planning to purchase and be sure to request lab-tested results so that you can be on the safe side. Still, if you want to give it a try just for fun – go for it – just remember to not fall for every miraculous description that these products have.
