Best Products for Father’s Day 2022

With Father’s Day around the corner, the hunt to find dad the perfect gift is on.

But in a world where some of us no longer go into an office, the need for new ties has now officially reached an all-time low. Fortunately, Glass House Farms has plenty of products perfectly suited to give your pop a relaxing throwback to his pot smoking heyday.

Far from being a market tailored exclusively to those with an appetite for only the most potent of products, there are also a wide array of amazing, CBD-rich options to ensure your dad is riding high — but not too high — available as well. To give your father a taste of the good stuff with no risk of a bad time to follow, start him off slow with a jar of Glass House Farms’ Jelly Fish.

This proprietary, CBD-rich strain is packed with flavor and continues to reign supreme as one of our perennial bestsellers. Just recently, Jelly Fish was recognized with a second-place finish for “Best Alternative Cannabinoid Flower” at the 2022 Emerald Cup. Engineered to deliver minimal, gentle psychoactive effects that still allow consumers to reap many of the benefits of cannabis, Jelly Fish is a signature strain in the Glass House Farms library that could be your ticket to acing Father’s Day like never before.

Available in jarred eighths, single pre-rolls, and pre-roll packs, we are also delighted to announce the reissue of our Jelly Fish tincture! Available now in both 15ml and 30ml bottles, our tincture provides a non-combustible way of enjoying Jelly Fish’s clear-headed chill and muscle ache relief without having to get your lungs involved. If your dad isn’t up for taking a toke, consider a Father’s Day gift of Glass House Farms’ Jelly Fish tincture as a win-win workaround.

Did your dad have tickets to see Led Zeppelin in his pocket the last time he bought a joint? If so, odds are decent that he’s yet to taste the full breadth of what modern cannabis has to offer. Case in point: Glass House Farm’s Tangelo Flow.

If a pleasant blast of bliss, zesty lemon, relief, and ripe cherries sounds like something your pop might appreciate, Tangelo Flow is presently available in jarred eighths and in pre-roll singles. Adding to the hype is Tangelo Flow’s recent third place win at the 2022 Emerald Cup in the category of ‘Best Alternative Cannabinoid Flower.’

Do you have a dad who wants to know about the ecological footprint being made by companies he supports? We’re happy to give him a full report on our planet friendly initiatives! Or, to really send the message home, get him a Jelly Fish or Tangelo Flow pre-roll and let him know that the tube is legitimately home compostable!

Want something extra to pair with your cannabis gift? If your dad likes to read, grab him a copy of Alia Volz’s excellent memoir, “Home Baked,” which tells the true story of her mother’s legendary pot brownie operation, Sticky Fingers, which “distributed thousands of marijuana brownies per month and helped provide medical marijuana to AIDS patients in San Francisco.” A fascinating, heartfelt read, the book was also a finalist for the National Book Critics Circle Award for Autobiography.

Perhaps visual media is more your pop’s speed? If so, grab him something special from Glass House Farms and pairing it with a gift card to Netflix. To seal the deal, include a note recommending a few of the following excellent documentaries that cover various aspects of the War on Drugs, the medical efficacy of cannabis, and the culture intrinsically associated with the plant.

They include the insightful, Ricki Lake-produced “Weed the People,” which examines the ways in which medical cannabis is helping children and 2019’s “Grass is Greener.” Directed by Fab 5 Freddy, the latter documentary details the harrowing history of cannabis prohibition in the United States and its integral ties to numerous eras of Black music. Though not specifically about cannabis, the 2020 Netflix doc “Crack: Cocaine, Corruption & Conspiracy” can likewise be considered essential viewing for anyone interested in a full reckoning with today’s national drug policies.

Whatever option fits best for your dad, there’s never been a better time to make cannabis a new Father’s Day tradition in your family!
