The 2017 Marijuana Gift Guide: 20 Items For the Stoner in Your Life

Make the holidays a whole lot chiller with these pot products and accessories.

Chelsea Johnston for Rolling Stone

This past year saw California pass an adult-use legalization, as well as members of the GOP finally supporting medical marijuana research, so 2017 has certainly been a big year for cannabis. The plant keeps edging further out of its shadowy, misunderstood past to bask in the sunshine of the mainstream. As it does, its users may be more public of their appreciation or start experimenting with the herbal medicine. Plus, cannabis users’ friends and family may shop for them accordingly – whether they’re canna-curious or seasoned stoners. The market contains multitudes more than your standard glass bowl. Whether you live in a state where it’s legalized or somewhere still forced to live off the black market, here are some diverse options to gift your favorite token toker – even if that toker is you.

Canndescent Virgin Cannabis 1/8th Effects Box

For the pot smoker who’s not sure what kind of weed they like, Canndescent peddles five different indoor-grown options, each one corresponding to a feeling instead of a strain. Gear up for a gallery opening or night out with the Connect strain, great for instilling a light body high without getting too heady for social interaction. Alternatively, try the Create strain, high in psychoactive properties, to ignite imagination without too much physical sedation. Charge gives you energy – great use before working out – while Cruise offers balance, and Calm encourages restful sleep. Each sleek orange gift-set comes with a pack of rolling papers and crutches, an organic hemp wick for lighting your bowl and a pack of elegant matches. 

Store locator available at Canndescent.com, for sale only in California. Prices start at $65.

Shine 24K Gold Rolling Papers

These bring a shiny new twist to the classic joint. But don’t let the gleam of these papers fool you: Its base is a hemp blend, giving it a natural and exceptional burn.

You know it’s real when there’s a certificate of authenticity, which these papers have.

Miwak Junior Papa Whiskey Pipe

Absolutely no Bonnaroo vibes with this decidedly adult, minimalist design. Though it’s made of porcelain, it packs a solid weight; it feels more like a river-smoothed stone than something fragile and ceramic. Miwak Junior uses a unique reduction process – pieces are fired in a gas kiln at extreme temperatures – that fortifies its pieces with extra sturdiness. The glossy, alabaster finish means the bowl easy to clean – making it that much more tempting to leave the pipe out in common areas around the home. 

Available for $80 at MiwakJunior.com, can be shipped across the United States.

Foria Pleasure Lube

Weed lube might sound like a gimmick, but women across the country are coming around to this THC-infused coconut-oil spray. Not only does it increase the body’s natural secretions (making it more a “pre-lube” than a traditional lubricant) it also intensifies orgasms. For those in states that have yet to go fully legal, Foria sells a CBD-only version called Awaken, which has gotten rave reviews as well. Watch out, though – since the products are oil-based, they can’t be used with latex condoms.

Store directory and online ordering available at ForiaWellness.com; THC products available only in Colorado and California, CBD available nationwide. Prices start at $38.  Prices start at $38.

Magical Butter Machine

Edibles summon a body high totally different than most smoking or vaping experiences. But making weed butter is a notoriously tough process. The folks at Magical Butter hawk this gizmo that nails a potent weed butter that doesn’t taste like a mouthful of turf. In a few easy steps, you can steep butter, oil or tincture in green in as little as one hour. After decarboxylating your herbs (a fancy term for baking crumbled pot at a low heat), it’s simply a matter of dumping in various ingredients into the stainless steel kettle – think a crock pot with magical possibilities. From there, you can use your newly-medicated butter not just for stereotypical brownies. Spacey salmon filets, anyone? 

Available for $174.95 at MagicalButter.com for shipment across the United States.

Beboe Vape Pen and Pastilles

Beboe only sells  three products – two vape pens and a box of pastilles – but thanks to their high-quality concentrates and gorgeous design, they’ve had no problem standing out. Dubbed the “Hermes of Marijuana” by The New York Times, Beboe is the brainchild of Scott Campell, an accomplished tattoo artist, and Clement Kwan, a fashion industry veteran. Together, they had a vision to create concentrate products that would not only satisfy their clients elevated tastes when it came to weed, but would be a product anyone would be proud to keep in their pocket or give as a hostess gift. And the best byproduct of them looking so chic? They’re perhaps the most discreet vapes around. 

Available to order in California only, list of retailors can be found at Beboe.com; $60 per vape pen, $25 for pack of 25 pastilles.

Goldleaf Prints

A welcome deviation from black velvet and Bob Marley, Goldleaf presents a decor option for the modern, productive stoner. For the vintage fiend, consider an Audubon-style, hand-drawn portrait of the plant printed on thick, matte archival paper. For the history buff, there’s the subtly colorful infographic print displaying cannabis’ long history of healing. Whatever design you choose, don’t forget to toss in some railers for proud display, available in walnut and maple (both $34.99 each). 

Prints available for $24.99 at ShopGoldleaf.com.

NORML Curved Rolling Papers

In November, the National Organization for the Reformation of Marijuana Laws partnered with Curved Papers, Inc. to roll out these 100-percent organic hemp papers. The design features a curved edge that results in a more evenly rolled end product. But this iteration is different, as a portion of the proceeds from the papers go to NORML, a nonprofit that works to promote legalized adult use, expanded medical availability and other related advocacy efforts in the cannabis community.

Available for purchase at CurvedPapers.com; prices start at $2.

Cannador Multi-Strain Storage System

Perhaps the downside to having access to so many good strains is that, sometimes, you don’t have time to smoke your weed before it dries out. Cannador is attempting to solve that problem by making a line of products that are humidors made especially for pot. Crafted from solid walnut or maple, the boxes (which come in two- to six-strain sizes) feature individual glass jars that fit inside an elegant exterior. Their special humidifying beads ensure that the contents stay the correct humidity, and for $59 extra, a Bluetooth-enabled hydrometer will sync with your smartphone to alert you if your pot starts to get too crispy. But perhaps the best perk of the Cannador is the way it artfully blends into a sophisticated living space – and that you can lock it, too, ensuring that little hands can’t reach inside. 

Store locator and online ordering available at Cannador.com; sets start at $129.99.

Kin Slips Sublingual Strips

As if vape pens weren’t discreet enough, Kin Slips has introduced a sub-lingual (under-the-tongue) strip that delivers a powerful punch of THC, and can be taken just about anywhere. The strips – which are about the size of a postage stamp and resemble a minty-fresh piece of sandpaper – come in an array of doses and strains. Park Life is CBD-only and comes in 10 mg doses; Nice Dream – which comes in either 10 or 20 mg THC doses – will give you some of the best sleep of your life; Cloud Buster is like a kick of pure sativa to the brain. The 10 and 20 mg THC strips are good, but the 5 mg – perfect for microdosing – is the standout of the brand.  

Store listing available at KinSlips.com, currently available only in California. Prices start at $20.

Puffco Pro 2 Portable Dabber

Dabbing is by far the most intense way to consume marijuana – it’s essentially freebasing concentrated THC using a glass pipe and a blowtorch. But Brooklyn-based Puffco has made it portable and way less sketchy, and their newest pen – the Puffco Pro 2 – looks really good while doing it. Just load in some wax, and the super slim coil system will heat it up to the perfect temperature to break down the cannabinoids, without burning them. Available for order at Puffco.com; Puffco Pro 2 retails for $75.95.
