The Box was designed months ago with the intention of creating the perfect "night in" gift set. We never ended up releasing the box and had it sitting in the closet until two weeks ago.

When the news broke in the U.S. that the Corona Virus was becoming widespread, we knew we had to make something of it. We decided to put a twist on the gift set and donate 10% of all proceeds to Direct Relief - an organization supporting nurses and doctors on the front line fighting COVID-19. 

Direct Relief is coordinating with public health authorities, nonprofit organizations and businesses in the U.S., China and globally to provide personal protective equipment and essential medical items to health workers responding to coronavirus (COVID-19). We are thrilled to offer support to these individuals risking their lives to protect ours.

We are introducing two new products to the Essential product line within this box, the first is our CBD Bath Bombs. The Essential CBD Bath Bombs will elevate your chill night in. There is 60 MG of full spectrum CBD in each bath bomb - for ultimate relaxation and pain management. The bath bombs come in the three Essential Moods, Relax, Relieve, and Focus. 

Your skin is your largest organ and is a powerful tool for absorbing cannabinoids and balancing your endocannabinoid system. As you soak in the tub, your body absorbs the essential oils and the CBD, like a sponge, for full body topical relief.

The second product we are introducing in The Box, is the limited run Holy Grail CBG Hand Sanitizer. CBG is another cannabinoid in the hemp plant has been shown in studies to kill or slow bacterial growth, reduce inflammation, inhibit cell growth in tumor/cancer cells, and promote bone growth. 

One extremely promising study on CBG conducted at McMaster University, in Canada, found that the cannabinoid cannabigerol (CBG) is effective in mice against a resilient family of bacteria known as methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA).

The research team found CBG prevented the ability of MRSA to form biofilms and it destroyed pre-formed biofilms and cells resistant to antibiotics. The cannabinoid achieved this by targeting the cell membrane of the bacteria. These findings in the laboratory were supported when mice with an MRSA infection were given CBG.

“CBG proved to be marvellous at tackling pathogenic bacteria,” Brown a researcher on the team said. “The findings suggest real therapeutic potential for cannabinoids as antibiotics.”

We hope The Box lifts your spirits, chills you out, and makes you feel good about donating some money to an incredibly important fight. Draw a bath, read a book, smoke a j, and wash those damn hands. 

Stay breathin', and stay well xx
