Save big on home security products during Presidents Day weekend

If we had it our way, we’d hire Fluffy the three-headed dog to guard our houses and live in peace forever. Unfortunately, this is not the Wizarding World, and we have no choice but to resort to the second best thing — home security products.

In honor of Presidents Day, we’re offering deals on items that will protect you against intrusions of any kind. Whether you want to keep hackers from accessing your home network or need something to protect you from thieves, we’ve got you covered.

1. HAVEN Mech Door Lock

This heavy-duty door lock is designed to deter intruders — even if they’re as strong as the Incredible Hulk. Designed and tested by U.S. Special Ops veterans, it adheres to the base of your door and is apparently 10 times stronger than a deadbolt. Engineered with military-grade materials, a locking wedge absorbs the force should there be an attempted break-in. It’s not a hassle to activate it either. Just step on the foot pedal and let it take care of the rest. Read more…

Save an additional 15% off these CBD-infused gummies for Presidents Day

As we celebrate Presidents Day, we have a fun little trivia for you: did you know that George Washington grew hemp?

We know what you’re thinking, and nope, it’s not that kind. The American Cincinnatus grew the type of hemp that turns into a rope, not the type you smoke.

But now that we have your attention, allow us to direct you to something that is also (technically) made from hemp: CBD-infused gummies.

In case you haven’t noticed, CBD (cannabidiol) is all the rage right now. Unlike its trippy cousin THC, CBD is believed to promote a sense of calm and overall wellness, and it’s now found in a laundry list of items of varying levels of weirdness — from topical oil to sparkling water to scented candles to even mascara.
