Thanks to the recent election, as of November 2016, recreational marijuana is now legal in eight states: Alaska, California, Colorado, Maine, Massachusetts, Nevada, Oregon and Washington. As for medical marijuana, that can now be prescribed in 28 States and the District of Columbia. (Check out the ProCon.org website for the full list.) Naturally, with this new government-sanctioned crop comes a host of gift ideas for the holidays. So for your 420-friendly relatives and friends, who happen to live in places where they can smoke pot without fear of repercussion from the law, here are four great gifts sure to add a nice buzz to their holiday cheer. Prices are rounded up to the nearest dollar.
Classic Genius Pipe, $90
Science is beautiful, isn’t it? Consider this: The Genius Pipe utilizes magnets and a dimpled design, instead of water, to cool the smoke. How does it work? Well,the pipe is composed of three layers of aluminum held together by magnets. You light the bud (in the middle section) through a crevice (in the top section) then when you’re ready to inhale, you slide the cover over the crevice and breathe in (through the bottom “dimpled” section). The result, according to Genius Pipe, is a “cough free” smoke.
A dented soda can just doesn’t do the trick as we get older. That’s where this 9-inch Helix Beaker Bong by Grav Labs comes in. Composed of Borosilicate glass (which is heat-resistant), this one-hit bowl apparatus isn’t just technologically advanced. It also looks like a piece of art.
Pax 3 Vaporizer, $275
Remember when a vaporizer was something your mom put in your room when you had the flu? How times have changed! Now a vaporizer is something that makes inhaling a safer experience. Just like cigarettes, when a joint is turned into smoke, tar and carcinogens result. But when weed is vaporized, the vape reaps the beneficial cannabinoids while eliminating many toxic byproducts. The Pax 3 Vaporizer comes in gold and is good for both “loose-leaf and extract” pot.
6-Strain Cannador, $308
Controlling humidity is an essential component of cannabis storage and the team at Cannador has devised a humidor intended specifically for marijuana. Their high-end storage unit is handcrafted in cherry or walnut and includes six compartments to accommodate different varieties, and incorporates both the “humidity bead system” and the “Bluetooth hygrometer.”
