If you are not a cannabis enthusiast like us, buying a gift from a dispensary for a loved one can certainly be challenging. With a plethora of ways to use cannabis and different cultural lingos… where do you start? That is where a handy guide like this comes in. Below, we share with you five gift ideas for the cannabis greenhorn in your life.

1. Central Ave. 1:1 Dark Chocolate ($20)

A perfect introductory chocolate bar as it has a 1:1 ratio of CBD to THC. The CBD helps to counteract some of that anxious feeling some might get during the come-up of an edible. This cute little stocking stuffer is the perfect holiday treat for the ‘munchie’ types. Each mouth-watering bite is made from genuine French Valrhona chocolate.

This chocolate is considered by many to be the finest variety in the world. With complex flavor notes and a lovely decadent 64% dark blend, new and experienced cannabis users alike will appreciate the thought of this delightful treat. Health nuts will love the antioxidant-rich properties of the dark chocolate, too!

2. CBD Tincture ($45)

For those who are more interested in the CBD-benefits side of cannabis use, this tincture from Sanctuary Medicinals is the ticket. New medical discoveries and clinical trials including various cannabis constituents are being completed each year.

While there is still much to learn about CBD, it may help with the symptoms of seizures, feelings of anxiousness, and pain, and more. This particular tincture is more affordable compared to the other brands, making it an ideal low commitment buy for first-time users.

3. Pique Cannabis Hot Sauce ($32)

Yes, you read it right… cannabis hot sauce! You can not pass up this gift idea if your budding cannabis user is an avid spicy foodie. This hot sauce can easily replace regular hot sauce in their favorite recipes, from enchiladas to wings to bulgogi.

Blended with delicious local ingredients from Massachusetts like garlic, peppers, cilantro, and cannabis extract, it won’t be long before they start sprinkling the stuff over everything.

4. Salve It! Lemon Shea Butter Salve ($16)

This exquisite cannabis-infused salve has the goodness of lemon oil and shea butter to quench dry and parched skin. It’s a great gift idea for the winter season. Cannabis is said to help with symptoms of inflammation and benefits the skin cells, which is great for those who have acne, rosacea, or eczema.

Add some nice cotton gloves with this gift, and you just created an overnight hand rejuvenation kit!

5. Silver Therapeutics Gift Card ($25)
