Well, the holidays are here — and so is the second (or third?) wave of Covid. Like all things 2020, it’s going to be a strange season to navigate, with varying degrees of lockdown and travel advisories marring any plans you may have had.
And while everything about the holiday season doesn’t sparkle like tinsel, the dichotomy of familial obligations and nostalgic warmth makes this season what it is. This year, however, we’ll have to manifest that fuzzy feeling on our own.
The key to this pandemic holiday is finding ways to foster that familial closeness despite physical distance. While there are a few ways to do this, like compulsive baking and blasting Mariah Carey, there’s no better way to spread cheer from afar than gifting edible cannabis.
While edibles tend to get a bad rep because of new users’ tendencies to over-medicate, they can actually be a fantastic way to break down the stigma surrounding cannabis. With developments like microdosing, nano THC (nano edibles hit in 15 minutes as opposed to 1 to 2 hours), and a massive expansion in the luxury edibles market, the genre has come a long way since the days of questionable dosages and pot brownie freak outs.
Whether you’re shopping for a canna-curious relative, your stoner friend, or yourself, we’ve compiled a comprehensive list of some of the best, most unique, and future-forward edibles on the market.
