The Art of Gifting Cannabis During the Holidays

Christmas is just around the corner. And with the holidays coming in just a few more weeks, thinking of creative ways and presents may just be on the top of your list. For like-minded friends and family, cannabis products are certainly a godsend, especially to help your loved ones wind down during their much-needed break.

With the legalization and decriminalization of marijuana around us, it may be high time to revisit the laws in your state. If your state has approved the recreational use of this plant, you’ll be happy to know that you can finally give some marijuana to your cannabis-loving friends. Since gift-giving and sharing have also been prevalent in marijuana culture, this might be the right time to bring back the drug’s legal status just in time for the Yuletide celebrations.

Gifting Cannabis Products to Individuals

Giving cannabis products as presents comes with great weight and responsibility. Part of this comes from knowing the preferences of your recipients. After all, you won’t necessarily give vaping products to someone who is not exactly into the scene, right?

At the same time, the ‘burden’ of gifting these items comes from informing recipients about their possible gift. Not only does this call their attention towards their present, but also allows them to prepare in time for receiving it. When children are exposed to these, it may pose dangers or risks which can harm their health. This is why gifting marijuana and other cannabis-infused products call for prior notice. This way, both givers and receivers are aware of the environment they are in, and by extension, aware of the parameters of their actions.

More importantly, taking the time to verify your recipient’s legal age is of utmost importance. In states where the plant is legal, users must be aged 21 years old or older prior to consuming cannabis. Since you’re gifting these plant-based products, the least you can do is assure receivers that they are getting high-quality goods from legal and regulated sources. To comply with the current state laws in place, ensure that you purchase goods from government-approved companies and licensed retailers or dispensaries.

Gifting Ideas Perfect for the Holidays

Once you have gotten these rules and regulations out of the way, it’s time to find the perfect gift for your list. Below are some great ideas you can take inspiration from:

  • For the Purist – Cannabis Flowers

For the purist, the best gift will always be pure, unadulterated cannabis flowers. As a matter of fact, you might want to throw in some rolling paper or lighters to help complete their set.

  • For the Skincare Enthusiast – CBD Beauty Products

Nourishing, moisturizing, and glowing are the keywords you need to pay attention to if you want to give presents to cannabis enthusiasts who are also beauty lovers. There are tons of CBD-infused beauty items for sale today, so you’re sure to find one that fits their fancy and your budget. These skin care products will help your loved ones feel and look their best as these are formulated with moisturizing and soothing properties.

  • For the Foodie – CBD Oil Edibles

You know what they say, the best way to a man’s heart is through their tummy. If this saying is true for most of your foodie friends, you can easily purchase some CBD oil edibles available on the market, such as a cannabis-infused chocolate bar or gummies. You can even bake some good ol’ fashioned pot brownies for that homemade touch.

It’s understandable that you want to purchase some marijuana goodies for your friends, after all, this plant offers a wealth of benefits. However, before jumping in headfirst, you should definitely look into these basic etiquettes and guidelines of sorts. This way, you can have good, clean fun during the holidays.

How ‘Someone Great’ Normalized Women Consuming Weed

Women using Weed

For the longest time, there was a societal misconception that only men had the right and the ability to use weed. Often, stoner films and even musicians centered on male personalities who have been taking this herb. As a matter of fact, these films show men huddling around and passing their joint to one another, as well as sharing their marijuana with fellow weed enthusiasts.

Today, it cannot be denied that the use of cannabis and even CBD Hemp oil has already been normalized in society, albeit far and few in between. After all, having a daily dose of pure cannabidiol or a hit of a joint is no different from having a glass of wine to relax, particularly after a long day. Someone Great, Netflix’s newest film is showing viewers just how women are taking back their space and showing the use of weed in their everyday life.

Setting the Pace

Television shows have already featured strong female personalities who have used cannabis. In fact, the characters of Abbi Jacobson and Ilana Glazer in Broad City have had numerous adventures with this plant. One of these hilarious escapades includes Ilana transporting cannabis and keeping it safe under her lady bits.

Mary + Jane from MTV also takes pride in showing two strong women breaking through a male-dominated weed delivery company in Los Angeles. Even Disjointed featured a commanding female presence through a cannabis activist who runs her own dispensary, perfectly depicted by Kathy Bates.

A More Relatable Approach

While these shows paved the way for the plant and the many CBD hemp oil benefits to become known, it seems that the film Someone Great appears more relatable, particularly for women who are not only experiencing a breakup but also those who are going through overwhelming changes in life.

Here, the character of Gina Rodriguez, the protagonist of the breakup comedy named Jenny, is finally moving from the Big Apple to sunny San Francisco. Having recently broken up with her boyfriend of nine years, Jenny makes it a point to leave the city with a bang. To do this, she meets with her two girlfriends, Erin (DeWanda Wise) and Blair (Brittany Snow) and goes on a series of wild exploits throughout Manhattan.

What makes these 20-something women relatable, apart from their kinship and their struggles, is their love for pot. As they began their thrilling journey around the city, each of these female characters either smokes up a joint or inhale the vapor of their CBD oil vape pen. Whether it be having sexual trysts or doing some work and grinding it up, this film illustrates that women are still capable of doing whatever they set their mind do even while taking cannabis.

This Netflix movie successfully showed using weed has become more accepted not only in society but also as a part of people’s lifestyle. In many ways, this has also become akin to taking a generous serving of wine at night, particularly when it comes to relaxing.

Various Uses of Cannabis

Jenny, Erin, and Blair all showed how they used cannabis in their life. Come to think of it, while each of these characters used it hastily, all of these individuals benefited from taking this herb. One enjoyed sex better, one became more relaxed and equipped in dealing with work, and so on.

Apart from using these in non-traditional ways, cannabis can also be used to alleviate pain and to treat a variety of illnesses and health concerns. The market now has CBD oil for pain management, CBD beauty products, and so on, thus upping the hemp game of the industry.

Someone Great shows that women are also adept with dealing with cannabis on screen. More than this, the film depicts a sense of rawness and relatability that allows viewers to see for themselves that weed does not have to be shunned. Give it a go and see just how eye-opening this movie can be.

High and Wealthy: Top 8 Richest People Who Have Used Marijuana

Richest Cannabis Users

For years, the word “rich” carries a broad range of possible connotations – classy, refined, eloquent, regal … and high? From smoking flower to consuming marijuana hash, the wealthy are dialed in.

Gone were the days when the wealthy are boxed within the “prim and proper” notion. Today, the newer generations of the top 1% are more than willing to break the strict expectations and experience a different dose of high and wildness.

From business tycoons, politicians, to award-winning artists, here are 8 of the richest cannabis users.

Get to know them:

  • George Zimmer

Perhaps, it is safe to say that almost every guy has heard the name “George Zimmer” before. He is, after all, the founder and former CEO of the popular clothing chain, Men’s Warehouse. Although Zimmer was fired as executive chairman in 2013 due to his “unwillingness to hand over the reins,” the entrepreneur remains to be one of the biggest fish in the cannabis pond.

In fact, in 2010, Zimmer has openly showcased his support for the legalization of cannabis by donating a staggering $70, 500 to support the Proposition 19 in California.

Five years later, in an interview with CNBC, the former CEO said he has been regularly smoking marijuana for half a century already. When asked about his stand about the marijuana prohibition, Zimmer is quick to respond, saying: “This is the biggest con that has been perpetrated on this country in the last century.”

  • Ted Turner

No one can debunk the unpleasant stereotypes linked to marijuana users more than the American billionaire Ted Turner. Not only is he famous for founding the first 24-hour news network, CNN, but he is also regarded as America’s second-largest individual landowner and a self-made billionaire. In 2014, Forbes estimated Ted Turner’s net worth at $2.2 billion. Today, Turner continues to rise as one of the top media tycoons in the country.

For years, Ted Turner has been rumored to have been a marijuana user. Some sources even claimed he had been caught growing marijuana in his dorm room at school. Although the mega-mogul refused to clarify the rumors, his vocal support for the legalization of cannabis and his consistent role as a sponsor of the Kentucky Hemp Museum already seem to confirm the report.

  • Richard Branson

Richard Branson is not the kind to back out from anything – even from admitting he smokes marijuana. In fact, in an interview with GQ magazine, the founder of the Virgin empire had admitted he tried using cocaine, ecstasy, Viagra, and marijuana.

“I haven’t tried skunk, I have smoked cannabis though. I mean, I went with my son on his gap year, for God’s sake. We learned to surf and had some nights where we laughed our heads off for eight hours,” the multi-millionaire airline boss told Piers Morgan.

As a bonus, the British entrepreneur also said that the first person to teach him how to roll a joint is none other than Rolling Stones guitarist Keith Richards.

For years, Branson has been one of the most devoted supporters of the legalization of marijuana and even said he’d put in on sale if it were to become legal.

  • Hugh Hefner

No one lives the “American Dream” more accurately than Hugh Hefner. From astounding mansions, fanciful lifestyle, dream girls, to regular puffing of cannabis – this magazine tycoon seems to has it all. Despite his death in 2017, the founder and editor-in-chief of Playboy magazine remains to be one of the biggest faces of celebrity cannabis users.

“I don’t think there’s any question that marijuana should be legalized because to not legalize it, we’re paying the same price we paid for prohibition,” he told Fox News on 2010 when asked about his stand on the legalization of the plant. “In other words, it is a medical concern and it should be handled that way.”

In a book called High in America: The True Story Behind NORML and the Politics of Marijuana, Hefner shared how marijuana made him see sex in a different light. “Smoking helped put me in touch with the realm of the senses. I discovered a whole other dimension to sex. I discovered the difference between fucking and making love,” the Playboy magnate told Patrick Anderson.

  • Michael Bloomberg

Nothing tops Michael Bloomberg when it comes to being the face of success. Not only is he the co-founder and CEO of the financial, software, data, and media giant, Bloomberg L.P, but he also became a three-term Mayor of New York City. Forbes estimated his net worth to be a stunning $55B and was even hailed as the 9th richest people in the world.

In 2001, Bloomberg was asked by New York Magazine whether he had ever tried marijuana, in which he responded with the iconic line: “You bet I did. And I enjoyed it.”

He then later came to regret making the comment when the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws Foundation unveiled a $500,000 ad campaign featuring his face alongside the quote.

“In terms of, I had, certainly when I was younger, as I suppose most people in my generation, experimented,” he told during a news conference. “I never lie, so if somebody asked me a question, I told them. Do I, in retrospect, wish I didn’t say it that day so they couldn’t quote it? Of course.”

However, despite his experience with the plant, Bloomberg was not fond of decriminalizing marijuana. In 2013, he even called medical marijuana “one of the greatest hoaxes of all time.”

  • Bill Gates

The American business magnate and co-founder of Microsoft isn’t just commendable for having the world’s largest private charitable foundation but also for his vocal support for the legalization of marijuana13 in his home state of Washington.

Although the Microsoft’s mogul has been mum on whether he had used to smoke cannabis, his 1994 interview with Playboy seem to suggest a possible answer. During the said interview, Gates was asked if he had ever taken drugs, particularly LCD. He responded by saying: “My errant youth ended a long time ago.”

When asked to further his answer, the American entrepreneur only said: “That means there were things I did under the age of 25 that I ended up not doing subsequently.”

Bill Gates now stands as the top 2 richest individuals in the world, according to Forbes.

  • George Soros

Aside from his vocal support for democratic ideals and causes, the Hungarian-American billionaire George Soros is also a faithful supporter of the legalization of marijuana. In fact, since 1984, he has been injecting more than $80 million of his money to various alliances and networks for the advancement of the legalization of marijuana.

Although he said he finds no use for drugs, the prominent international investor admitted he once tried smoking cannabis.

“I tried marijuana and enjoyed it, but it did not become a habit and I have not tasted it in many years,” Soros said in an interview.

As a well-known humanitarian, George Soros believed that the marijuana laws are doing more harm to people than good.

“The criminalization of marijuana did not prevent marijuana from becoming the most widely used illegal substance in the United States and many other countries. But it did result in extensive costs and negative consequences,” he asserted.

  • Steve Jobs

Perhaps, we can all agree that no other CEO could top the grand stature of Steve Jobs when it comes to the public realm. After all, who would forget the genius mind behind the Apple gadgets? In 2010, he was hailed by Forbes to be the 17th most powerful person. And even when he succumbed to cancer in 2011, he was still regarded as one of the leading pioneers of the microcomputer revolution.

Prior to his death, Jobs’ involvement in recreational drug use is not a secret to the public. In fact, he was even able to give a talk about his drug experiences, particularly with LSD and marijuana. During the interview, the Apple Co-Founder expressed that his use of LSD was one of the “two or three most important things” he ever did in his life. He also said he and his friends used to smoke marijuana and eat pot brownies for some time before. For Jobs, the reason behind his marijuana usage stems from the relaxing effect the plant provides, along with its creative significances.

Today, Steve Job’s legacy continues to affect the computer, wireless, and even cannabis industries.

After his death, Daniel Kottke, an old friend of Jobs’ told CNN that Jobs’ experiments with drugs stopped with the dawn of his company, Apple.

“Once Apple started, Steve was really focused with all of his energy on making Apple successful… and he didn’t need psychedelics for that,” he explained.

Conclusion:

Surely, the “high” and wealthy will always have their own ways to stay on top. From CEOs, politicians, sports personalities, to celebrities, there always comes a broad list of rich people who find leisure in the company of the green plant.

Who among these people do you fancy sharing a joint with?
