With 4/20 fast approaching, Spring is in the air and so are a lot of our plans: Are we ditching our masks? Are we going back to movie theaters? What if it’s just for Morbius?
Still, it’s nice to know that in these uncertain times there are some things we can always count on, like cannabis companies finding ever more innovative ways to let us enjoy our favorite product from the comfort of home. So whether you’re thinking of your friends or exercising self-care, I give you this last-minute 4/20 Gift Guide.
For the Workout Warrior
Vibations could’ve been called “I Can’t Believe It’s Not Gatorade,” and it would be just as accurate. Made with natural caffeine from guarana and full spectrum cannabis for an energetic entourage effect, packed with vitamins and electrolytes for hydration, Vibations comes in 5 mg THC packets of powder that you shake into water and enjoy. With flavors like Peach Tangerine Tea, Strawberry Lemonade, and Pomegranate Blueberry Acai, Vibations is a sports drink that’ll make your workouts, well, a little breezier.
For the Sophisticated Snacker
If chewing on an all-natural Starburst that gets you high seems like a good time to you, look no further. Betty’s Eddies are vegan, cannabis-infused chews that are gluten- and dairy-free, and handcrafted with full-spectrum cannabis oil and organic fruits and vegetables. At 5 mg of THC each, they’re formulated for getting some sleep (Bedtime Eddies) or cozying up with your partner (Smashin’ Passion), and they’re made with an old-fashioned taffy puller for that old-school taste and texture.
For the Compassionate Cannaseur
Sackville & Co. is a contemporary cannabis brand launched by women who care about weed and social justice; they’ve partnered with The Sex Workers Project of the Urban Justice Center, donating their proceeds to educate and defend the rights of sex workers. Along the way, they’ve designed some gorgeous gold grinders, crystal ball pipes, ashtrays, and stash bags, making accessories into an art form and proving that you can look great while doing good.
For the One With a High Tolerance
Care By Design calls their 1:1 Max “the most potent product in the California market,” and after trying it out, we’re in no position to argue. Each 15 ml bottle contains a whopping 1000 mg of THC and 1000 mg of CBD (nope, not a misprint), and it’s all California sun-grown, triple-tested for purity, vegan, gluten-free, and paired with coconut oil to improve absorption. At $56 a bottle, it’ll take you a whole lot further than a tank of gas.
For the Mensch with the Munchies
Some products just put a smile on our face, and this collaboration from two local LA brands absolutely does the trick. Offered as a limited edition for weed’s “high holiday,” this is a sweet-and-savory blend of Yeastie Boys’ “everything bagel” salty seasoning sprinkled on Kiva’s hash-infused dark chocolate bar. and it’s dosed at 100 mg of THC scored with 5 mg serving sizes. Crumble a few bits into a bowl of Jeni’s Everything Bagel ice cream and you’re really living.
For the Festival-Goer
Burb, a British Columbia-based retailer of all things cannabis, has a network of stores that act as community centers to “celebrate the plant and preserve the culture associated with it.” We love everything about their lockable 420 waist bag, from the durable and weatherproof X-pac material, to the slots for stashing pre-rolls, to the removable smell-proof pouch in the main compartment. It also doesn’t attract unnecessary attention, unlike that dude dancing like a whirling dervish.
For the Person Who Doesn’t Want to Wait for the High
A lot of people love the taste of gummies, but they don’t want to wait around for an hour for them to kick in. These gummies are enhanced with Quick technology, making them the first fast-acting live rosin gummie on the market providing Delta-9-THC effects. The average onset time is just 5 to 15 minutes. They’re also pure, using only first press live rosin made from fresh-frozen top-shelf flower, not trim. Wana Live Rosin Gummies come in four distinct flavors. We like the Tropical Smoothie.
For the Stylish Stoner
Edie Parker is widely known for its stylish handbags, but the company also creates whimsical cannabis accessories. Their fruit bowl pipe collection is a perfect example. Made of borosilicate glass, the pipes come in cherry, banana, orange, and grape. Offer it to guests instead of dessert.
For the Stoner on the Go
Vapes were once a bit of a compromise, arguably offering more convenience than quality — kind of like mp3 players, but that’s a different rant for a different day. Wonderbrett is helping change the game with their new live resin vape carts, which masterfully replicate the flavor and full-terp experience of their signature genetics and house them in hardware from iSpire. They travel well, and they may even help you sleep on the plane.
For the One Who Loves to Love
“A Formula 1 car has a seatbelt. So does Sexpot,” says Michael Backes, Co-Founder of Perfect. Operating under the assumption that many people would like to get high without getting stoned, Sexpot is a proprietary, 100% flower-based blend formulated to enhance connection, euphoria, and relaxation — in other words, intimacy over intoxication, lucid rather than loopy. Next time your friend tells you pot makes them paranoid, you’ve got them covered.
