Have a pot-loving, wanderlusting, traveller on your gift list? We’ve got you covered.
While minimalist backpackers may stick with a pack of Rizlas and a lighter, some cannabis enthusiasts prefer to travel with accoutrements without sacrificing too much space or style — although it’s important to remember that it’s illegal to bring cannabis across the border.
From affordable to aspirational, here are a few gift ideas for the wandering weed lover in your life.
Scent-proof travel case
Just because weed is legal doesn’t mean you want your entire suitcase reeking of chron (and if you do, there are fancier, more subtle ways of accomplishing that).
This vegan leather clutch from Toronto’s Hotbox is carbon-lined, smell-proof, spacious enough to hold your herb and necessary accessories, and comes with a sleek metal chain bracelet in addition to the standard clutch handle. Available in three colours — all named after different cultivars.
If you’re thinking about something a little more industrial (or your recipient is planning to spend time with kids or especially dextrous pets this holiday season), this zip-up bag lined in activated carbon fibre with a three-number combination lock is likely to fit the bill (might we suggest 4-2-0).
Tiny storage jars
These tiny pocket-sized, ultraviolet glass containers from Infinity Jars are perfect for keeping a weekend’s worth of samples fresh as the day they were purchased while blocking odour to keep your stash on the down-low. The lids can easily be labelled with a chalk pen and then wiped clean when empty so your recipient doesn’t confuse their cultivars.
$55 for a set of three, amazon.ca
Perfect for providing quick hits for Him or Her on the go, this little wonder turns into a one-hitter in two quick twists. It comes in both necklace and keychain options — the former on a sleek and stylish snake chain, and the latter attached to a traditional keyring. Available in brass or stainless steel.
