And our dispensary shelves are full to bursting with great cannabis gifts of every description!

The Green Goods Cannabis Gifts Guide: Cannabis Products for 2020
Let’s begin with vaporizers. If nothing else, 2020 was a great year for vapes! Because they dispense a cooling, fast-acting cannabis-infused mist, these high-tech devices have taken their rightful place among the most exciting cannabis products of the last decade or so. Because dry flower vapes have made such leaps and bounds, we’re featuring two to choose from!
Dry Herb Vaporizer by Khan
Voted “Best Vaporizer of 2020” by Vaping Daily, the Khan is a sleek machine milled from aerospace-grade aluminum. Supercharged by one of the most powerful batteries on the market, it boasts a sleek LED interface for temperature control. The .5 gram chamber is one of the largest available, making operation simple, intuitive, and fun!
Herb-e Micro by Mig Vapor
At roughly $60, this dry flower vaporizer may have the best price-to-performance ratio of any unit we’ve tried! Surprisingly small and light, this sleek little vaporizer trades a few of the features of the Khan for extreme compactness and portability. The simple controls are a plus for those of us more interested in simplicity than bells and whistles.
Now, what about topicals? They can be a great treat to purchase for yourself! Even those of us who don’t ingest cannabis can agree that the powerful anti-inflammatory powers of cannabis topicals are a great way to soothe the regular aches and strains that arise from time to time. But read the product descriptions carefully, as some topicals are designed to impart no psychoactive effects while others are!
Ease by Ilera Healthcare
Designed to target inflammation and pain, this carefully formulated cream delivers all the healing power of CBD without mental effects. Neutral-smelling and rapidly absorbed, it’s a great pre-or post-workout addition to your overall health and wellness regimen.
1:1 Balanced Lotion by Dr. Solomon’s
The Dr. Solomon’s line of topicals are well-loved for their combination of potent cannabinoid-based healing with deeply nourishing and restorative balms and lotions. Relying on essential oils to relieve dry and chapped skin, this penetrating lotion delivers a balanced blend of the two most important cannabinoids in a non-intoxicating formulation.
The Green Goods Health Gift Guide: Holiday Cannabis Books for 2020
As cannabis moves deeper into the mainstream, book publishers are taking a cue. 2020 saw a bumper crop of cannabis books hit the shelves; here are a few of our favorites!
The Cannabis Dictionary, by Alex Halperin
Taking a page from the beloved encyclopedias we grew up with, the renowned cannabis expert behind WeedWeek dispenses hard science in a thoroughly engaging and readable way. Heavily illustrated, intelligent, and fresh, this compendium is a valuable resource you’ll want to turn to again and again. Available from Amazon and other booksellers.
The Ultimate Guide to CBD, by Jamie Evans
It’s been a few years since CBD took the world of cannabis by storm, but many people still aren’t quite sure what it’s about. This clear-eyed and practical book could change all that. The figure behind the popular Herb Somm guide, Evans shares the science behind the CBD as well as plenty of tips, recipes, and other practical know-how. It’s a great resource for jump-starting your own cannabis-based wellness practice! Available from Amazon and other booksellers.
