And let’s face it, those cheap trinkets and snacks that fill stockings every year are so much more exciting after a few tokes or edibles!
Stuff a little bud in the bottom of your stoner friend’s stocking, or throw in a cute little cannabis gift so you can spend the rest of the holidays baking, making, and creating!

Weed tends to make people feel a little more relaxed, easy-going and chlil during the holidays, which makes it an ideal compliment for Christmas.
