GIFT GUIDE | For your cannacurious friend

With cannabis now legal in CA for adults 21 and older, we encounter a lot of “cannacurious” customers who either haven’t tried cannabis before or have let 25+ years pass since their last experience. If you have one of these people in your life, help them have an amazing holiday season by introducing them to a low-dose, easy to consume cannabis product from our robust menu. Our esteemed Concierge team has curated a handful of products to help you choose the best cannabis gift for your friend that will ensure they have a great experience with their family and friends this holiday season!

PLUS Tangerine UPLIFT Gummies

Here’s a great product for the friend who wants to consume cannabis in a discreet way that doesn’t involve smoking during their holiday get together. There are a total of 20 gummies in each tin, each containing 5mg of THC for a low dose experience that is ideal for newbies like your bud. These gummies have a refreshing, sunny-sweet tangerine flavor profile that tastes amazing, but don’t let the taste fool you into taking more than one to start. Before they wolf down a second gummy, make sure they know that the THC effects will kick in around 60 to 90 minutes after consumption and last 4 to 6 hours. We like to say “go low and slow” to begin. You can always take more after 90 minutes!

dosist bliss

This “all in one” vape pen is ideal for your buddy as it is specifically designed for someone who is new to cannabis, providing only 2.25 mg of THC per serving. Once you begin inhaling, the pen will vibrate and then stop once you have taken in the full serving—typically after about three seconds. The onset effects of consuming cannabis this way are pretty quick, happening 5 to 10 minutes at most, with the euphoric effect lasting 1 to 2 hours. This will help your buddy navigate those sticky political discussions that typically take place during family gatherings!

CANN Blood Orange Cardamom Social Tonic

Cannabis beverages have become one of the more popular options here in 2019, and the folks over at CANN knock it out of the park when it comes to making products for first time consumers who are looking for a low-dose, great-tasting, alternative option for cannabis consumption. Each can contains only 2mg of THC and 4mg CBD which amounts to the perfect dose for a cannacurious friend. You will need to let your friend know that these are so delicious they will likely need to fight the urge to consume more than one of these in a 90 minute period of time. Onset effects happen 15 to 20 minutes after drinking and can last 1 to 2 hours, so please drink responsibly!

Kiva Chocolate Bar

Kiva is one of the most widely recognized brands in the cannabis industry for producing some of the tastiest edible options on the market. Our customers rave about this delicious milk chocolate bar and we know your friend will too! Each bar contains 100 mg of THC. One 5 mg serving should be ideal for your friend who wants to enjoy the moment without being too euphoric when around their family this holiday season. Let your friend know that the effects of the THC will kick in around 60 to 90 minutes post-consumption and last 4 to 6 hours, so they should fight the urge to eat more than one serving before the 90-minute mark.

Island Mini’s Hybrid Preroll 5-Pack

For the more traditional friend who is interested in smoking flower, you should purchase them a pack of the Island Mini’s Hybrid Prerolls. Why? First off, they won’t have to roll a joint. That’s already been done for them, so nobody will need to know that they don’t know how to roll a joint! Second, these prerolls are smaller than your normal preroll ( .5 gram vs 1.0 gram ) so you get exactly the amount of THC you need for a first-time user without wasting flower that could be used in a second (or third!) session. These minis are perfect for 2 to 4 people so your friend can invite their favorite family members to enjoy the moment with them. Our Concierge team typically instructs new users to take 2 to 3 pulls on the joint and wait 15 to 20 minutes before smoking more. The onset is quick and the euphoric effect will last 1 to 2 hours.
