It may not feel like it this year, but yes — the holidays are upon us.
Indeed, shopping for gifts will be different since the coronavirus pandemic will likely keep many of us from going to stores.
But for "cannathusiasts", there's much to celebrate. Last month, four more states voted in favor of cannabis reform, and each year, it seems another corner of the planet is embracing weed.
Many big names in the industry also offer something special around the gift-giving season, and 2020 is no different.
There are all sorts of holiday-inspired pot packages for you and/or your loved ones. After all, 'tis the season when people typically turn to THC and CBD-infused products more than usual — especially New Years Eve.
So, whether you need to crank up the party, relax and ease the holiday stress, contemplate about the year you're leaving behind or you're on the hunt for the perfect "ganja gift" for that special someone, I’ve listed a few options for you to choose from:
1. Starting with one and only “Domestic Goddess” — Martha Stewart.
“In my experience, the gifts that are most appreciated are both luxurious and practical,” she says. With this in mind, Stewart partnered with Canopy Growth Corp. CGC and launched the Martha Stewart CBD Wellness Gummies Sampler. This is a special edition gift box that comes at a price of $64.99, and counts 60 delicious CBD wellness gummies (10 milligrams), with all kinds of holiday-inspired flavors, from passion fruit, and strawberry, to black currant, and green apple.
