Skip the malls, skip the cheap made-in-china items, skip the gifts they don’t need and will never use. This year, give the gift of cannabis. Buying from a legal dispensary supports the local economy and community, supports California based brands, and helps support businesses that create local jobs. We compiled this gift guide to help you find the right cannabis products for the people on your list!

Who: That special person who just wants to get high
Some of us use cannabis to feel better, some of us use cannabis to get high, and some of us use it for both. If you have someone on your list who likes to get high, check out these gift ideas.
Extracts are an incredible gift if the person you’re shopping for dabs. It’s a connoisseur’s product and the difference between good and bad is very apparent. A top shelf extract like Coalition Banana OG badder will have them drooling over the quality and aromas and earning you the title of “best gift giver ever.” Flower and live resin vapes are two other great options. If the person is experienced, an eighth of top shelf flower or a gram of live resin will deliver.

Some of the best, most flavorful, extracts on the market. Made with fresh frozen, processed at subcritical temps, and CRC for ultra purity. You can’t go wrong with Coalition extracts.

Who: Someone who is canna-curious but doesn’t know where to start and is maybe too intimidated to go into a dispensary themselves.
If someone is new to cannabis, you definitely want to start small. Start with low dose THC cannabis products that are high in CBD. CBD will help balance out the traditional high sensations that any THC in the products will produce.
Vape – Disposable vape pens are a great option for newbies. You don’t need a battery. You don’t need to know anything about heat settings. Just take a puff and you’re good to go. Vaping also makes it easy to control your dosing. The effects come on fast and you control the dose by how hard you inhale. Vapes are also more discrete – they don’t smell and they’re small in size.
Pre-rolls – Pre-rolls are a great option for someone that is interested in more traditional way of consuming. Anyone who used to smoke in college or when they were younger will appreciate the experience of smoking a joint. Pick a joint with less than 20% THC made with outdoor flower and smaller than 1G in size. Stay away from anything infused.
Edibles – Candy is a much less intimidating way to consume cannabis but it can sneak up on you fast. Most edibles come in really nice packaging that makes for great gifting. For beginners, we recommend low THC/high CBD edibles.
Dompen CBD ratio disposable vape pens – 1:1 Mint, 4:1 Honey Citrus, or 18:1 Chamomile
Dompen’s disposable vape pens are sleek, discrete, and easy to use. Their CBD formulas don’t have any traditional cannabis vape flavors or smells making them great for beginners or anyone looking to keep it on the DL.
