With the New Year on the horizon and 2020 on its way out, it’s time for us here at Diamond CBD to take a look back at some of our best blog posts, and by extension, our best products of the year. We’ve spent the past 12 months doing some of our most exciting work ever here at Diamond, innovating and developing cutting-edge CBD and Delta-8 formulations for your enjoyment and wellness. And we’ve also spent the past 12 months writing about it too.

Because that’s what we do here at Diamond CBD. While other CBD companies are content to rest on their laurels, we’re not. Our goal is to always produce bigger and better hemp-based products for you. We understand that classic CBD oil is terrific but that we’ve only touched the surface of what we can do with the hemp plant. And while 2020 was a fantastic year for hemp innovation, 2021 will be even better.

But before we can look forward, we need to reflect on what brought us to this point.

After all, we had many great victories this year, both with CBD and our newest cannabinoid, Delta-8. Just 12 months ago, who would have thought that we would be enjoying a legal, psychotropic high from the comfort of our own homes? We sure didn’t? And now Delta-8 is one of your favorite products, which is why we’ve infused it in everything from gummies to oils to vape products and more.

But that’s not all. Because this year we’ve introduced so many wonderful products. We added whole flower CBD to our lineup and introduced you to the wonders of CBG. We took your favorite CBD edibles and reformulated them to make them from scratch, and we added cannabidiol to dipping sauces of all things. In terms of innovation, 2020 has been a magical year.

So let’s take a look back at some of our best, most innovative products from the past 12 months. Who knows, maybe, you’ll find a few last-minute items to help you celebrate the New Year as it rolls in. And while we’re at it, we’re going to take a look at some of our best blog entries from the past year too.

A CBD New Year: Looking Back at 2020

Before we look back at our best blog entries and products from the past 12 months in preparation for this year’s New Year celebration, let’s take a look back at 2020 as a whole because it’s been an exciting year, to say the least. If anything, 2020 is a year that all of us will remember for a long time. Moreover, it’s one we’ll probably tell our grandchildren about.

After, this year included a global pandemic, stay-at-home orders, online schooling, civic engagement on a grand scale, and so much more. It was a year where we all came together to try and do better, and for that alone, the year deserves special recognition. 

Honestly, 2020 was a rough year. As The Washington Post noted, it was rougher than most. “In the past… we have said harsh things about previous years,” stated The Post in its year-in-review. “We owe those years an apology. Compared to 2020, all previous years, even the Disco Era, were the golden age of human existence.”

But we made it, and we’re here to tell the tale. So with that being said, let’s see our top five crowning achievements from 2020.

We Stopped and Smelled the Flowers with Whole Flower Hemp CBD

Starting our list of the best of 2020 is our look back at our Hemp Delight Whole Flower CBD products. The introduction of this new product was an innovation in the cannabidiol market as it brought hemp-derived CBD back to its classic roots. Forget oil and creams and edibles. Now users had the opportunity to light up a bud pulled directly from the hemp plant, just like they did back in the day.

And what did we have to say about this earlier in the year? Back in August, we called it amazing.

“For starters, our Hemp Delight Hemp Flower CBD strains incorporate a broader spectrum of terpenes and cannabinoids, giving you not only a bolder scent and taste with each strain but also offering you a stronger overall entourage effect with every use,” we wrote in August. “It’s the ideal way to incorporate whole flower hemp into your daily routine.”

You can find Hemp Delight Whole Flower CBD this New Year in various strains, including Cuban Smack (Skywalker OG), a legendary OG Kush strain mixed with Skywalker that offers a rich, full-bodied experience. We also have. Elektra, Sour Diesel, Special Sauce, Sour Space Candy, and Wagyu as well.

We Put CBD in Sauces (Really!)

This year was an excellent year for CBD edibles. Our Yum Yum Edibles CBD Sauces were a big hit as everyone turned up the heat with CBD infused hot sauces and had some fun with our either CBD-infused products. It was another way to show how innovative we could be when it comes to all-natural, hemp-derived CBD products. Today, everyone is dipping their favorite snacks into one of our CBD sauces.

And what did we have to say about it this year? Earlier this year, we told you that our sauces were bold and flavorful, and we weren’t lying. 

“Everyone likes it hot in the summer, and nothing is hotter than our blazin’ hot Yum Yum Edibles CBD Hot Sauces,” we wrote. “These four burning hot sauces will tickle your tongue and send steam screaming out of your taste buds, but you’ll keep coming back for more. It’s the ideal way to add some heat to your kitchen and burn away those summertime blues.”

Now you can kick up your New Year’s Party with some of the hottest sauces ever, including CBD Original Hot Sauce, Diablo CBD Hot Sauce, Sizzlin’ CBD Hot Sauce, and Blazin’ CBD Hot Sauce, all of which are infused with 250mg of our all-natural, hemp-derived CBD.

We Introduced You To CBG

CBD is a wonderful, fantastic wellness product to add to your toolbox. However, that toolbox just grew a bit bigger thanks to the innovation of CBG this year. CBG, which stands for cannabigerol, is another cannabinoid found in the hemp plant with some pretty unique properties. We don’t know a lot of CBG, right, but what we do know knocks our socks off.

Here’s what we had to say about it earlier this year:

“Although scientists haven’t been studying CBG nearly as long as THC or CBD (and they haven't been studying CBD or THC that long either), they’ve learned a lot in a short period,” we wrote. “What we know about the endocannabinoid system or ECS) and how it helps to keep us balanced and in a state of homeostasis has helped immensely. For example, we know that cannabinoids work in conjunction with the endocannabinoid system, helping it to amplify or boost a variety of the body’s different functions. CBG is another phytocannabinoid tool that we can possibly add to the toolbox.

Want to try some CBG before the year ends? Look no further than Diamond CBD’s Hemp Delight Hemp Flower CBG White Flower.

We Gave You Delta-8 (and You Loved It!)

This year, 2020, was the year of Delta-8. What is Delta-8? For those of you that have been living under a rock for most of the year, Delta-8 is the only cannabinoid that offers users a completely legal psychotropic high. That’s right, 100 percent legal. How long will it last before the feds decide to do something about it? We don’t know. But for now, vape ‘em if you got ‘em.

We’ve infused Delta-8 into everything because it’s such a versatile cannabinoid. From gummies to oils to vapes, it’s proven to be such a remarkable compound that we can’t stop singing its praises. In fact, we’ve been singing its praises all year.

“While a legal high is an amazing benefit, Delta-8 has a number of exceptional properties,” we told you earlier this year. “Although Delta-8 is very similar to Delta-9, the specific mechanisms behind how it works are different. This is why Delta-8 has a much more subtle and smooth feeling. Delta-8 binds to CB1 receptors differently than Delta-9 THC does, which offers users a whole host of different benefits, many of which we’re still learning about.”

Are you looking for some fun with Delta-8 this New Year’s Eve? Our Chill Plus collection of premium Delta-8 products is where it’s at.

Here’s To the New Year

Here’s to more innovation in the year, as well as less excitement on a global scale. We all deserve a much more calm and peaceful 2021. So from our family here at Diamond CBD to your family, we wish you a safe and Happy New Year. And remember to keep checking us out next year for all of your CBD and other hemp-derived needs. We have some great new things in store for you.
