Enter Parachute Home’s merino wool version. You might think the knit would make it itchy, but this ultra-soft number is so comfortable on the eyes.

This CBD tincture is derived from cannabis but does not produce the “high” often associated with the plant (that comes from its psychoactive component of THC). However, the tincture will help you unwind by relaxing the body and diminishing feelings of stress or anxiety. Even though you won’t feel like you’re drifting on a cloud, your muscles will loosen up and make sleep easier to come by. Bonus: The flavor is mild and natural, combining sweet orange, bergamot, basil, and lavender (in other words, it doesn’t have that typically “hempy” taste so often found in cannabis products).
