Traditionally, the month of June celebrates dads and grads. This Sunday is Father’s Day, while all month long hopeful college graduates are getting ready for a well-deserved summer off and embarking on the next big adventure. Of course, we live in a time when traditions were made to be broken–so for the cannabis-loving dads and grads out there, here’s a cool gift list. From practical to luxurious, and for every budget, these infused ideas will bring high praise.
Dr. Bronner’s Organic Shaving Soaps–Infused with hemp oil, these classic all-natural shaving soaps from Dr. Bronner’s come in enticing aromas, in tea tree, peppermint, lavender, lemon grass-lime, and unscented. Ingredients include organic shikakai powder, fair trade & organic sugar from Paraguay that imparts a caramel color and aroma, while moisturizing and soothing naturally. Blended carefully with coconut-olive-hemp castile soap base. At DrBronner.com.
Dank IPA–If you’re in Aurora, Colorado, take dad over to Dad and Dude’s Breweria for a Dank IPA craft brew and a large pie with everything. Father & son team Thomas and Mason Hembree are your hosts at this neighborhood brew house and pizzeria location. The Dank IPA is described as “originally released in 2012, Dank is back after a tiny run-in with ‘the man.’ We’ve packed this Colorado-style India Pale Ale with pounds of the sweetest Cannabaceae Humulus Lupulus. This heavily dry-hopped IPA is balanced with a smooth caramel maltiness reminiscent of old-school IPAs. Prepare for cotton mouth, and remember to always pass the Dank on the left.” Check out Breweria.com.
Hemp Diaper Bag–For new dads that may also be grads, the High End Sativa Hobo Diaper Bag has everything you need to change a poopy diaper. Lined in organic cotton, this casual-looking carry all is tough hemp canvas on the outside, in six fashion colors. Wide, adjustable shoulder strap; the bag folds out into a changing mat, with removable fleece for easy cleaning. At NaturellementChanvre.com.

To Whom It May Infused Chocolates–It’s hard to go wrong with luxury chocolates, no matter the occasion and especially when the tantalizing truffles are infused with either THC (in California) or CBD (available everywhere).

Jamaican Vacation–If money is no object, then why not take the whole family to Jamaica for an once-in-a-lifetime cannabis-friendly getaway? At KushTourism.com, you can plan to travel domestically or abroad–we picked Jamaica because, well, it sounds pretty chill. Kush Tourism advises that “in mid-2015, [Jamaica] passed a drug law amendment that decriminalized small amounts of marijuana for personal use. Under the new law, possession of up to 2 ounces (or 56 grams) of marijuana is a petty offence.” That said, check out the Little Bay Cabins in Negril, where the 4/20 Package for an extra $50 will “get you all you can smoke.” At KushTourism.com.
