I am so excited! This is truly my favorite time of year. No matter how old I get, I still cherish the anticipation of knowing what’s in the pretty wrapped box, the delectable desserts and time with family and friends. The holiday season never gets old to me. With age, however, I have come to enjoy giving gifts far more that I do receiving them. It simply melts my heart to see the huge smiles on the faces of my loved ones when they open a gift from me that is just what they wanted or is something unique and functional. I feel an extra sense of pride when I am able to do this for the person that seems to have everything…I know, you have them on your list, too.
With only 10 shopping days left, you may be feeling a little pressure. No worries. I am here to help. Below are my top 5 gift ideas for the cannabis-lover in your life, or for the person who is warming up to the idea;-)
1. Apparel from Pot Head Genius
This Cincinnati, OH based small business is the work of brother and sister duo. When they turned to cannabis to help with ADHD, the two had no idea it would blossom to this.
They offer a variety of clothing items and accessories that allow that special someone to proudly display their love of the flower and Be Genius. Prices range from $35 – $220.
2. AnnaBis Handbags & Accessories
Founder, Jeanine Moss, created this line of stylish, discreet, odor-blocking bags and accessories for Canna-lovin’ women everywhere after a girls’ night out where they found themselves digging through their purses for medicine, lighters, mints and perfume. These bags are designed so that you can have all of your medicine and tools with you while maintaining a professional, polished look. So, say good-bye to those canvas bags with the huge marijuana leaf on the side and say hello to a AnnaBis bag.
Prices range from $95-$295 and there is free shipping for purchases over $100. Sign up for the newsletter or use code: DISCOUNT10 and receive 10% off your order.
3. Give the gift of medicine
Sometimes that hard-to-buy-for person isn’t a person at all. Sometimes it’s your furry companion. Why not share the magic of cannabis with your fur-baby? Treatibles provides organic hemp products for dogs and cats and a few items for you, too.
Hemp oil can be useful in easing anxiety, promoting healthy joints and digestion, maintaining the body’s natural inflammatory response, addressing discomfort, loss of appetite, nausea, seizures, and more for animals. Their product prices range from $22 for 10 doses of hemp oil to $300 for a case of hemp chews for dogs over 50lbs, and there is free shipping for orders over $75.
4. Copaiba Essential Oil
Do you know someone that is still having trouble with all of the negative stigma and propaganda associated with cannabis use, but who could greatly benefit from the plant? Try warming them up to the idea by introducing them to Copaiba.
This essential oil contains the pain-relieving compound, beta-caryophyllene (BCP), which is also found in cannabis. It is also helps the body control its response to inflammation, injury and irritation. The oil retails for $46.67 for 15mL bottle and a bottle of 60 softgels goes for $42.27.
5. Apparel and Accessories by Tentree
In addition to all of its medicinal benefits, cannabis/hemp fibers are one of the most sustainable natural fibers on the planet. They are grown without the use of any pesticides or herbicides, and the fibers are very strong. Hemp fibers are also naturally anti-microbial and UV resistance. At Tentree, you can find all sorts of apparel and accessories made from hemp, as well as other sustainable fabrics like cork and coconut!
