Presents to pamper: Gifts for the discerning cannabis connoisseur

Kate A. Miner EVERCANNABIS Correspondent

It is that time of year when gift giving really starts to heat up. Father’s Day is June 21, college graduates are celebrating hard-earned achievements, and June is traditionally the biggest month for weddings.

And while celebrations might be a little different this year, a thoughtful gift is never the wrong move.

So if your friends or loved ones who enjoy cannabis or CBD products fall into these categories, there are plenty of gifts they’ll appreciate, especially as the stigma around marijuana products continues to decline; national fashion and beauty retailers like Sephora, Ulta, and Urban Outfitters now carry dozens of CBD beauty brands.

This is only the beginning of some of the unique and somewhat luxurious options available. You may not be able to browse store shelves right now to find the perfect gift, or celebrate at a big bash, but you can still send a thoughtful message with a carefully-selected gift.

Black Dahlia CBD Oral Sprays

Discreet and convenient, Black Dahlia CBD oral sprays come in Peppermint, Ginger and Unflavored, and contain nano-sized water-soluble droplets infused with CBD-rich hemp oil for rapid absorption. Said to be relaxing and calming, all Black Dahlia products feature sleek black and gold packaging fit for anyone with a discerning eye.

Marro Products Topical Sampler

This limited-edition gift provides a beautifully packaged set of four Marro topical CBD + Terpene blends that will assist in relieving pain/discomfort, anxiousness/stress, sleeplessness, and cramps. Each mini-sampler is approximately 4 doses. Also included is a box of wildflower seeds so you can start your own little garden.

Goldleaf Guided Journals

Goldleaf sells exquisite journals, supplies, and prints to suit all aspects of the cannabis lifestyle – patient, grower or general enthusiast. The leather-bound books are filled with drawings, charts, and spaces for journaling and planning. They also sell precise pens and artistic prints that focus on the science behind life’s passions.

The Good Patch Patches

These hemp-infused patches go on smoothly and provide hours of relaxation and relief. Perfect for wedding favors or feel-good seasonal baskets. Their Hangover patch combines 15 mg of premium hemp extract with B1, B complex and Green Tea extract, while the Be Calm patch helps you unwind and decompress.

Her Highness Pleasure Oil

This perfectly concocted intimacy oil brings the power of THC to your pleasure zones, and is said to be “highly orgasmic,” provide tingling and other sensations. Her Highness sells a range of luxury items that look as though they came from the finest salon, such as their gold grinder or lip service ashtray. (THC products only available at California cannabis retailers.)

Omura Bento Box

Omura makes beautifully packaged disposable flower sticks, and delivers a consistently clean, sustainable and enjoyable experience with “heat-not-burn” technology to “activate the terpenes without charring the plant.” The Bento Box includes a Heat-Not-Burn device in choice of colors and two flower sticks (only CBD hemp packs available for online order).

Nature of Things Luxury Body Balms

Nature of Things philosophy is to ease stress in a natural way. Their website is full of naked bodies frolicking in the jungle and sea, and their packaging looks like it emerged from the sand. Their luxurious bath soaks and balms are all about nourishing and restoring the body. Not cheap, these products are for serious spoiling.

CBD Pillow for Peaceful Sleep

Not just your typical gel memory foam pillow, the CBD pillowcase is infused with millions of microcapsules filled with the highest quality CBD for deeper sleep, relaxation, and a more refreshing morning. The pillow is said to release micro doses of CBD all night long, guaranteed to improve your sleep.

Fire Bros Flower

For your cannabis enthusiast who deserves a treat. This Seattle-based cannabis producer and processor always aims to produce something different with unique strain blends. Live resin, diamonds, and hash rosin are their specialties, but they also sell a wide range of flower, pre-rolls, and concentrates. Fire Bros offers some of the smoothest smoke in the state.

Saint Jane Luxury Beauty Serum

This product has been in the press quite a bit as one of the best CBD face serums available. Packed with 20 potent botanicals, including radiance-amplifying actives like Sea Buckthorn, Calendula and Rose to gently resurface and detoxify pores, while full-spectrum CBD calms and soothes even the most stressful skin issues.

Wildflower CBD Cool Stick

This Canadian company’s mission is to connect people with the healing power of plants. Sharing inspired holistic wellness with some of the best-performing CBD and cannabis wellness products available. Their latest product, CBD Cool Stick, is conveniently packaged as a roll-on and helps with general deep tissue aches and pains.

A Proper High

This company makes a wide range of cool products, such as their Advanced Liquid Technology (ALT) cannabis – a colorless, flavorless liquid that comes in 5mg vials to add to the beverage of your choice. They also have sleek and understated bongs, including their Session bong or Heir Waterpipe, which are great for those cool cats that want a bong that doesn’t look like one.

Gold Leaf Gardens Leira Cigars

Gold Leaf Gardens has transcended its early success as a medical provider and is now flourishing in Washington’s recreational market. This Hawaiian family business sells a wide range of indulgent products, but one of the most sought after are the Leira cigars. Each cannabis cigar is painstakingly hand-built over months, with some specimens selling for thousands of dollars.
