The Cannabis Lover’s Holiday Gift Guide
Now that cannabis is legal, at least in ten American states, holiday gift giving suddenly takes on new meaning. No, you probably don’t want to put a package full of weed under the tree, but just as adults often gift one another fine bottles of wine or scotch behind closed doors they might now be considering the gift of cannabis. Where to start, you ask?
First, start your shopping right here by reading the rest of this blog post. We have grouped potential gifts by audience, a big thing to take into consideration as you don’t want to gift something someone really doesn’t want. Either way, buying a gift of this level will eventually require some expert-level consultation with whomever you intend to purchase these gifts from.
Preferably, you will come see us at Canna West Seattle, where you’ll not only engage with Dope Magazine’s Best Budtenders, but also all of the products listed in this round-up. We invest time in truly understanding each customer’s unique needs by actually listening and then asking the right questions. As a result of this deeper initial engagement with you our budtenders will be better able to provide you targeted gift suggestions that greatly exceed the list provided below. It is because of them that we have this list to share with you. So, without further ado, we present our 2018 Cannabis Lover’s Holiday Gift Guide:
For the Book Club Wife/Girlfriend/Partner
This book club segment is grooving on the edibles. Therefore, we have provided two contrasting gift suggestions – one for those wives/girlfriends/partners who prefer to throw BYOB-style events, and one for the ‘hostess with the mostest’-type, who likes to arrange book club-related events where the treats are provided by the hostess.
BYOB Suggestion: Mr. Moxey’s Mints
Easy to travel with and also a great stocking stuffer, these mints provide fresh minty breath for chatty social settings, and a light dose of THC with only 5mg of THC per mint. Canna West Seattle these mints currently sell for $36 per box.
Hostess with the Mostest Suggestion: Canna West Seattle’s Sweet Pack Edible Variety Boxes
Through Christmas we are offering a fun gift box featuring 5 different premium infused single edible options. This gift box allows the hostess with the mostest to serve 6-9 people depending on how she distributes the goods. If you want to go large and buy her multiple variety boxes, no worries! Each gift box is selling for just $22!
For the CrossFit Fanatic
There’s nothing quite like getting stoned and then going for a run, especially in the dark and through a downtown environment like Seattle. Whoa. Pair that workout with the right weed and it’s really on! The two flower strains featured below will have you bouncing up downtown Seattle’s Federal building staircase, and maybe even clearing its nasty cement box jumps at the top of each staircase!
For the Loved One in Pain
Canna West Seattle’s Ultra Healing CBD Gift Box: People experience pain for many different reasons and sometimes finding a solution to that pain requires a full consultation with one of our budtenders. That being said, we are offering Ultra Healing CBD gift boxes from now through Christmas; a gift that will allow your loved one’s to effectively manage their pain without necessarily getting high. These gift boxes currently cost $70. Pro Tip: upgrade to the Uncle’s Vape Pen and Heylo CBD Cartridge for just and extra $50!
For the Former Hippie
Do you know someone who longs for the Columbian Gold? Here are two of many classic strains we carry; one is a throwback to the 1980’s and 90’s in the skunky AK-47 from Dynamic Harvest, and the other a tribute to Jack Herer, a man some consider the ‘emperor of weed.’ A couple of bong hits from either of these strains will have you humming those old Allman Brothers tunes again.
For the Golfing Hubby/Boyfriend/Partner
This one is easy. Just read our blog post from September – 5 Weed Strains Tested for Golf Aptitude – and you will understand why we emphatically recommend Dynamic Harvest’s White Widow and Soulshine Cannabis’ Hindu Kush flower for golfers. Each strain provides critical focus, but a relaxed physical state, which offers players an easy way to access ‘the zone’ without the threat of dying in a thunderstorm (see the Caddyshack video below). Your golfing partner will thank you once they have regained their normal social skills, as neither of these strains should be considered social.
For the Movie or Video Game Fan
Some people like to zone out, or zone in, depending on your perspective. In moments where you want your body and mind to relax as one, edibles and different types of smokeables often present the best results. Included below are just two flower examples from a wide range of possible recommendations.
For the Boss
Assuming you have the type of relationship with your boss that would allow you to gift them something of the cannabis variety, we suggest going classy with this one. The gift should be on par with a good bottle of single malt. Ask one of our budtenders for help with this purchase, but your focus should be on either buying something that person might not necessarily buy for themselves, or purchasing something that is part of their regular, but classy lineup. Here are two suggestions:
Vessel Vape’s are the top of the line in terms of dependable vaporizers. They feature sleek designs including real walnut and aluminum (pictured is the Silver Expedition Series), with temperature control and a protected cartridge drop in design. This is a classy, discreet gift and at Canna West Seattle is currently selling for $110.
