Smoke it, eat it, vape it, bake it: your weed gift guide has arrived just in time for Christmas. While many good things we love took a hit this year, cannabis wasn’t one of them. In fact, in our lifetime, there aren’t many resurgences quite as spectacular as the one that marijuana has experienced in 2016; cannabis culture is a far cry from the days when we hid a zig-zagged stumpy joint in an old Altoids tin.
As such, beautiful gifts for the dope-loving enthusiast abound, including high-fashion designer accessories. To help us round up the best gifts for the true aficionado, we called on Alison Gordon, a Brand and Marketing Strategist in the medical cannabis industry, and a true leader in Canada’s renaissance of weed.
