How to Gift Cannabis for the Holidays
Posted December 9th
This holiday season, your family and friends want a thoughtful gift they can actually use—and few things say you care quite more than weed. Whether your loved ones are new to green or they’ve been smoking for years, weed is the gift that keeps on giving (for those legally able to consume it).
Pro-Tips for Gifting Weed
Let’s be honest—no gift is too big or too small when it comes to cannabis. A pack of rolling papers (24K gold ones if you’re feeling fancy), a single pre-roll, or even a roll of hemp wick can make the perfect gift for the green-obsessed.
Look for variety packs.
Take the guesswork out of gifting with a variety pack, like our seven-pack pre-roll sampler.This way, your giftee can try something different and maybe even discover their new favorite cannabis strain. (Available at The Pottery, Farmacy Santa Ana, Farmacy Santa Barbara, and Farmacy Berkeley)
Is your giftee brand new to weed? Maybe start them off with your favorite CBD-rich strain. If they’re a pro, try an infused pre-roll that’ll take them off to cloud nine in no time. Somewhere in the middle? You can’t go wrong with a classic eighth jar of a hybrid of your choosing.
Think about your giftee’s goals with cannabis.
Some people want to address conditions like chronic pain and stress and others just want to get creative or relax after a day of work. Think about what your friend or family member is looking to achieve with cannabis to lead you to the perfect holiday gift.
The actual flower of the plant is just one part of the pot puzzle. Vaporizers, glass bongs, and even high-quality grinders can all be a nice surprise for your loved one. You can even get creative and make them a custom gift basket complete with candles, a classy rolling tray, an eco-friendly rechargeable lighter, and maybe even some holiday munchies.
Even the smallest personal touch can make a world of difference when gifting cannabis. One idea is to label each joint with “movie night”, “hike”, “zzz’s”, or whenever you recommend enjoying your gift. Another option is to buy them a variety of their favorite snacks to go alongside each type of flower. Whatever you can think of to make this gift more than just something off the shelves will make it an unforgettable holiday present.
When all is said and done, just remember to have fun with it. Gifting cannabis is an enjoyable experience for both the giver and the receiver so don’t put too much pressure on yourself. Simply take these tips into consideration and you’ll be well on your way to gifting success. Read our previous blog article Get to Know Cannabinoids and Consume Like A Pro.
