Gifting cannabis during the holidays is a great option for family and friends who like to use. With so many choices available, you can get creative and find the perfect gift for everyone, from beginner to cannaeist. There is, however, a certain etiquette to keep in mind when gifting cannabis! As this may still be a new concept for many, we’ve put together some tips and suggestions to get you started on your holiday cannabis shopping. 1. Adults Only Cannabis should never be given to adults under the drinking age in your area. As cannabis age regulations are provincial, always be sure to check the applicable laws where you live. 2. Always buy legal It’s not just for the holidays, but it never hurts to have a reminder. Buying cannabis from a legal source is the safest way to buy cannabis, and it’s the only way to know exactly what’s in the product you’re buying. The last thing you want to do is give your loved ones a product from an illegal source and risk potential harm. 3. Consider the basics Cannabis can be a very personal decision, especially for those who have been using it for a long time or who use it for a specific reason. If you’re not comfortable choosing a strain for your family or friends, but want to give them something cannabis-related, you can’t go wrong with some of the essentials! Prepare a small care package that includes the basics, such as: rolling papers lighter pipe grinder storage jar or pouch rolling tray 4. Talk to a budtender for advice I’m more than happy to help you narrow down some choices. If you’re shopping for new users, budtenders can help direct you to balanced or low-THC strains recommended for new users. If you’re shopping for a more experienced consumer, budtenders can take the person’s favorite terpenes or even strains they’ve liked before and offer suggestions for what they might enjoy in the future. 5. Remember that you are shopping for them, not yourself. important to remember who you are buying for. If they’ve only consumed floral products in the past, edibles might not be the best choice, even if they’re your preferred mode of consumption. Alternatively, if it’s someone who prefers to keep their consumption more discreet, then ingestibles like capsules or edibles are a better route than a vape or pre-roll. Nobody wants a gift they won’t use, so just remember who you’re shopping for when you head to your local retailer. 6. Start low, go slow with edibles If you’re offering edibles to someone, consider starting with a 1:1 balanced product with equal or lower parts THC to CBD. Something like Wana Sour Gummies Strawberry Lemonade 1:1 is a great place to start, as CBD is known to lessen the effects of THC when consumed at the same time. This makes it a great starting point for new or less experienced consumers. It’s also a good idea to include a little note with the gift that suggests starting with gum or chocolate (depending on what you’re giving them) and waiting a few hours to see how they feel before moving on. consume more. If you are giving away cannabis, you have a responsibility to make sure everyone is informed! 7. Compose Your Own Gifts It’s entirely possible that you can’t find exactly what you want at a dispensary, or that you want to be a little more creative with your gifts, which is when you can put together your own gifts. at hand ! Consider creating your own pre-roll sample pack by working with a budtender to bring together different brands, different terpene profiles, different THC levels, and different flavor profiles. You can even create a theme, like “Movie Night Munchies” or “Sativa Saturdays,” to further customize the collection. 8. Be honest about your gifts When you give someone cannabis, you are responsible for making sure they have all the information. Be clear about what you’re giving them, THC and CBD values, and anything else they might need to know. This is especially true if you are making your own edibles as gifts. Dose your edibles accurately and clearly state the amount of THC and CBD in each product, as well as the strain you used, if possible. It is also important to clearly state that baked goods are infused with cannabis. You might also consider gifting them in a secure container, so the recipient doesn’t have to worry about finding a place to store them! 9. Offer a gift card If you’re not sure what to get someone, a gift card to a local cannabis retailer is always a great option. Not only are you supporting the local, but you’re allowing your loved ones to buy something they know they’ll want! 10. Don’t assume you’ll be invited to participate Gifting cannabis and expecting it to be shared with you immediately is a bit like giving someone a sweater and asking them to wear it when you have cold. If you want to use cannabis at a gathering, always bring your own so your host doesn’t feel pressured to use it right away. Some people prefer to consume on their own, so never assume you’ll be invited to join them once you’ve given them their gift. Giving cannabis is a great way to find personalized gifts for family and friends who use it, but be sure to follow these tips for staying on top of etiquette!
