His recipes include dishes for every occasion along with his specific guidelines for achieving a safe dosage. He also lists the principal strains of marijuana and details their effects and both medical and recreational benefits.

For the Music Lover
Cypress Hill may have been notable for being the first Latino hip-hop stars, but they really made their mark as pioneers of stoner rap when they released “I Wanna Get High”. It’s no secret that they were big-time advocates for medical and recreational marijuana in the States, actively campaigning for its legalization. Art imitated life as their “stoned beats” became a strong part of their signature sound. The Essential Cypress Hill is an album guaranteed to please any long-time fan, with plenty of familiar favorites to sing along to.
For the Boy/Girl Scout
I bet not many of us were aware that we needed a Nuggy in our life. But trust me, we do. This “Swiss Army Knife for smokers” comes in a couple of varieties. The Nuggy Dab is a four-tool device equipped with a pick, scoop, fork and paddle for all your smoking needs. The Nuggy Hybrid, great for flower and concentrates, comes equipped with a roach clip, knife, paddle, pick, bowl scraper and scoop. Both Nugs are encased in colorful, heat-resistant shells that look like candies. As the Nuggy’s creators state on their website, “we were sick of always searching around the house for the right tool. We needed a well-made, pocket-size device that could do it all.” Mission accomplished.
For the Budding Picasso

These coloring pages plumb the depths of human imagination and creativity–not to mention the trippy or otherwise hilarious aspects of life. The Stoner’s Coloring Book was created for elves, fairies, magi, poets, saints, sadhus, gurus, lovers, and other wise beings. Set aside your worries, breathe deeply, and find your childlike Zen through the joy of coloring.”
Boveda is a Minneapolis-based company that scientifically engineered a way to maintain precise relative humidity in an enclosed space. They were mainly applying their technology to the preservation of wooden instruments, food, cigars and the like. Eventually growers and dispensary owners reached out to ask if the company could create a product that would protect cannabis from air contamination. And so the Boveda 62 Humidity Control Pack was born. This must-have for stoners will keep your weed fresh for longer, and it will even revive your dried out stash. Just drop a container in with your weed in a mason for a few days, and voila! Your bud will also burn more slowly and smoothly. Merry Christmas!
