The legalization of cannabis in 2018 brought about a rapid boom in the Canadian smoking industry. There are loads of new products coming out every day, designed to make that perfect stoney experience even more amazing. A couple of years ago, weed-friendly gifts were restricted to gag gifts and novelty items, but now they are becoming one of the most popular trends in the country.
If you want to buy something unique for yourself or you're stumped on what to get your favourite marijuana-loving friend this Christmas, look no further. We've compiled a list of the best cannabis Christmas gifts ideas that will have them feeling all warm and fuzzy inside while also being practical for everyday life.
1. A Brand New Bong!
No list of Christmas weed gifts would be complete without a new bong! There are many types of bongs out there, but they all work in the same way: you submerge the bowl in water, put your weed in it and then light it up. Bongs offer a cleaner, smoother hit that is also much easier on the wallet than smoking joints. Bongs are available for any price range, too, so you'll be able to find one to suit your budget with ease.
Another cool thing about bongs is that they come in different colours, designs and art. You'll be able to find one that complements your loved one or friend's personality perfectly. For example, one of our favourite bongs is the Big Boss, a beaker-type bong of imposing size that is sure to make any stoner salivate.
If your friends are more into straight bongs, the Shady Lady makes for a beautiful addition to every living room with its high-quality glass and intricate design. But If you're really looking for that WOW factor, you might want to opt for one of our custom/cool bongs. As the name indicates, The Diamonds Baby has a diamond-shaped base, but its real beauty is its hexagonal shaft, which features percolators.
2. A Dab Rig For Dad
Dab rigs are relatively new to the world because so are marijuana concentrates. That's why they make the perfect innovative weed gift!
Marijuana concentrates are an extract of THC or CBD resin from the cannabis plant, which is then dabbed or vaporized for a much more powerful hit than regular weed. You can think of flowers as beer and concentrates as hard liquor.
Dab rigs come in many forms, but they essentially work the same: you will need to heat with a nail, and then you will inhale the vapour through a mouthpiece.
If you're looking to buy something that is both cool-looking and functional this Christmas, consider one of our custom glass dab rigs. The "Happi" dab rig is a great example of this, and it has customizable colours of glass on the outside with a percolator system on the inside to cool down the smoke.
The basic dab rigs are made from titanium or quartz, but they are increasingly popular in borosilicate glass. The more you spend, the better quality of materials you will get. This means that more heat can be taken away from the vaporizer before you inhale, meaning a better hit.
If your stoner friend has already bought their own dab rig and is looking for something else this Christmas, consider buying them some concentrates instead.
3. Awesome Accessories
Consuming marijuana requires a lot of paraphernalia, some of which may get lost or broken over time. If you don't want to spend a lot of money on your weed Christmas gifts, there are plenty of accessories that you can use with full-size bongs and dab rigs. For example, the Trinity Bowl is a very convenient accessory for smoking weed, as a simple bowl is often the most convenient way to smoke. If your friend already has a bong but broke their bowl, this Trinity Bowl will solve all your problems and make them happy.
Grinders, papers and ash catchers are three other accessories that will be useful for your loved ones and friends. Grinders are used to break up your weed into fine pieces before you put it in the bong, and this will give you a better hit as all the THC crystals will come out. Papers are self-explanatory, and ash catchers work just like they sound: they catch all that pesky ash from your bong, so it doesn't get all over the place.
Another great smoking tool is the Smoke Buddy. This handy little device allows the user to blow smoke into it, effectively purifying the smoke that comes out. It filters the smell of weed to avoid trouble when smoking indoors or in public spaces.
4. Handy Hand Pipes and Beautiful Bubblers
If your loved one is a stoner on the go, consider buying them a nice hand pipe or bubbler. Hand pipes can be as simple as an elongated bowl which you smoke from, and as complex as intricately designed little works of art. Bubblers are essentially small bongs that you take with you everywhere and share with your friends. Pipes and bubblers still give you that head rush from smoking weed, but they are much more convenient because you can easily carry them around.
So, if you want to buy something practical yet beautiful for a stoner friend or family member this Christmas, try hand pipes and bubblers!
5. A CBD Christmas
What if you could give someone a cannabis Christmas gift that could change their lives. Most people use marijuana recreationally for THC, and they often overlook the benefits of CBD. CBD is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid that comes from the hemp plant and has many medical benefits. This is why some people decide to buy CBD oil for themselves or others this Christmas!
CBD can be used to treat many health conditions, including chronic pain, arthritis, epilepsy and even cancer. CBD is also an antioxidant which means it can slow down the ageing process. So, these holidays do someone a huge favour by introducing them to CBD oil!
Christmas is coming up fast, so if you want to get your stoner friend or relative something for this Christmas, keep these five suggestions in mind. It's the thought that counts when giving a gift, but let's be honest: The quality and usefulness of a gift matter just as much. Have a green Christmas this year, and treat your friends to the best cannabis accessories in Canada.
