Cannabis devotees don’t usually need a reason to light up. But if they want one, the holiday season is as good as any. As one recent email from a pot delivery service said, “Holidays SUCK. We can help.”
Legalization has made cannabis a more visible presence at festive gatherings across the board – from marijuana weddings to pot-infused fine dining. And while sharing edibles around the fireplace may not be quite as popular (yet) as passing around the Christmas cookies, there are plenty of ways to enjoy getting responsibly baked this holiday season.
A slew of holiday-themed products have already made their way on to the market. This Christmas, those who desire can take advantage of cannabis wreaths, Christmas ornaments , a cannabis advent calendar with a new strain for each day, and a “Mistletoke” bouquet. One can also find numerous holiday-inspired edibles recipes, from THC-spiked cider to pumpkin spice pancakes with THC butter.
And it’s not all about Christmas: the California-based Lowell Herb Co sells a Hanukkah gift set with strains for each of the Jewish holiday’s eight nights.
Unlike so many other modern holiday traditions, cannabis was likely familiar in biblical times.
Jesus, with his long hair and good vibes, is frequently identified as 420-friendly. It’s been speculated that the the oil he used to anoint the sick and perform miracles may have been cannabis oil. “Jesus was peaceful and loving. He went from house to house and was always accepted,” an amateur bible scholar told the Los Angeles Times in 2016. “Only a stoner could do that.”
Both the Old and New Testaments are especially fertile places to search for allusions to weed, with all those people talking to God. Moses had his vision of the burning bush, and isn’t cannabis also just a burning bush? (Woah, dude.) So this holiday season, getting stoned might help you get in touch with your higher power.
Cannabis can also ease the emotional strain of visiting relatives, or being alone, or any of the other reasons someone might reasonably seek out a holiday pick-me-up.
Or it might help you just lie on the couch, enjoy some good food, and watch episodes of The Simpsons. Either way, I won’t judge.
This is perfect for the stoner who is always on the go. The sticks are individually wrapped with honey flavor in 10 mg of CBD for a euphoric and relaxing experience.
This can help alleviate stress and anxiety when your stoner friends come back from a busy and exhausting day. If your friend has a history of anxiety or spends little time on themselves, then CBD infused honey sticks can be a lifesaver.

Create a Cannabis-Cozy Atmosphere
Creating the perfect ambiance or atmosphere for the holiday’s is a stoner’s priority!
Have a fireplace or outdoor firepit? Turn that bad boy on! Candles? Get them lit!
Grab some cozy slippers, jogging pants, hoodies and comfies and decorate your place for Christmas while listening to your fav holiday music!
(I wouldn’t be Canadian if I didn’t tell you to turn on some Michael Buble, because nothing (besides weed) says Christmas like Buble!)
Creating a cozy atmosphere in your home increases all of those feel-good chemicals like endorphins that get you in the right kind of mood.
( and we could all use a but of Christmas cheer in 2020, right?)
String up lights, decorate the tree, and just let yourself get consumed with Christmas for an afternoon. Wrap some gifts, and get festive.
