While Hanukkah celebrations are already upon us, Christmas is little more than two weeks away, followed by Kwanza, and then New Year–all great occasions for gift-giving, merry-making, warm gatherings, and time to take for a well-deserved winter break.
Today, more than ever, holiday celebrations can and are being reinterpreted with new traditions. For seasoned cannabis consumers or those new to recreational marijuana, there are more and more products and promotions to help you have an herbal holiday. Deck the halls, stuff stockings with infused bath bomb balls, dress the tree with ornaments and glee, and don’t forget magical candies and tea.
Aside from all the celebrating you’ll be doing; a gift of cannabis can really help to take the edge off after dealing with winter traffic jams, days spent standing in long, holiday lines, or just generalized seasonal anxiety. Even folks that don’t do holidays can relate to that.
To keep it elevated on every level–remember to breathe (or inhale), spread a little extra good will and cheer, and enjoy the small things. Don’t hesitate to celebrate. Here’s a list–we hope you’re checking it twice, while having yourself a beautiful holiday season:
Cannabombz Christmas Bath Bombs–If spa treatments are your sugar and spice, and everything nice, then Cannabombz has three yummy-sounding scents for the season: Frosted Pine, Snowball, and Candy Cane. Organic, essential oils combine with Epsom salts and CBD oil, for a nice, hot soak on a cold winter night. A handcrafted gift that encourages pain relief, skincare, and relaxation. Since Cannabombz contain hemp-derived CBD oil only, they’re available for shipping throughout the U.S., at Cannabombz.com.
Coda Signature Infused Chocolates–Fact: It’s not a holiday without chocolate. Cannabis and chocolate are a magical combination because the fats in high quality chocolate (and butters) provide the perfect molecular vehicle for digestion of cannabinoids. Science aside, this Colorado-based purveyor of gourmet infused chocolates has bars in holiday heart-warming flavors like Snap & Spice, Maple & Pecan, and Coffee & Donuts, among others, and in a variety of dosages. Coda also offers three gift boxes of colorful, infused truffles that include six pieces each, with 30mg THC per piece–the Crescendo, Forte, and Serenade collections. At retailers in Colorado, at CodaSignature.com.

Makes a great hostess gift or stocking stuffer. Available in California and Florida, from Dosist.com.
Huxton Holiday-Flavored Vape Pens–Huxton’s full-spectrum vape oil blends combine with naturally derived botanical essential oils, to create three full-flavored holiday vape pens.
