Holiday gift guide: Canna-curious


California’s recreational cannabis industry will celebrate its first holiday season this year. Like all other retailers, dispensaries are getting in the spirit with special gift boxes and holiday-centric products. With an array of products now on the market, you’re sure to find something for both the seasoned cannabis user and a canna-curious newbie.

The health nut

KIVA Confections: Blueberry Terra Bites

Those that prefer fruit for dessert will enjoy these chocolate covered blueberry edibles. Cocoa powder dusted dried blueberries are coated with a generous serving of milk chocolate. Each edible has 5mg of THC, perfect for those into microdosing (consuming small amounts of cannabis for a light and pleasant high). $28

The sweet tooth

KIVA Confections: Peppermint Bark

KIVA’s chocolate edibles are notoriously tasty, coming in flavors like dark chocolate, espresso, vanilla chai and more. This year, the candy cannabis company is going full Christmas with THC-infused peppermint bark. With white and dark chocolate swirls, dusted with peppermint, this bark is a perfect stocking stuffer. $32

The fashionista

Beboe: The Besties Kit

The stylish user will love the fashionable products and packaging from Beboe. Their rose gold vaporizer is sleek and discreet while the medicated pastilles come in a fashionable pink tin with detailed designs. Meant for microdosing, Beboe is perfect for use at small gatherings like dinner parties and kickbacks. $69

The social butterfly

Juna: Gold Tincture

Use the psychoactive drops under the tongue for a faster onset or add to food or beverages for a subtle floral flavor. Gold is intended to give the user an “effervescent, uplifted mood and a sense of social discovery” with each 5 mg THC dosage. Comes with a measurable dropper in case you need a smaller or bigger dose. $73

The newbie

Mary’s Medicinals: Distillate Cartridge Kit

Vaping can be less intimidating to a beginner as opposed to rolling your own joints. Available in both 3:1 CBD:THC 1.1 CBN:CBD, these blends provide a relaxing sensation as opposed to an intense high. $88 for 3:1 CBD:THC; $100 for 1:1 CBN:CBD

The connoisseur

A first ever Canndescent gift set, it comes with everything needed to light up — five jars of flower, hemp wick, rolling papers, crutches, and matches.
