With the record-breaking snowfall we received here in Ontario this month, and Christmas less than one month away, there’s no more denying it: winter is here, and we are in a festive mood!
In the spirit of the holidays, we wanted to help make your shopping experience a little easier. Whether you’re shopping for a cannabis connoisseur, someone who is canna-curious, or looking to treat yourself, our 2019 Gift Guide has a little something for everyone. Bonus: You can buy all these items online while you stay warm and cozy at home, avoid the holiday crowds, and support local, Canadian companies all in one go.
Zen Zingers DIY Gummy Making Kit
With edibles now legal in Canada, there is a rise in interest for this method of discrete and delicious consumption. But with sales via legal retailers not set to be ready until December, you might be worried about stock and availability so close to Christmas. Enter: DIY edibles. This handy kit from Paracanna comes with everything you need to make your own: gummy mold, sugar mix, dropper and instructions. All you have to supply is your own cannabis oil. With 4 delicious fruit flavours, the end result is truly custom to your liking. You can purchase Paracanna’s Zen Zingers here and here.

Don’t be fooled by what you see! These buds are 100% edible and will satisfy the sweet tooth of cannabis consumers and non-consumers alike. Made with gourmet ingredients like freeze-dried fruit, matcha powder, and maple flakes, these confections come in 4 whimsical flavours and do not contain any ingredients from the cannabis plant – it’s all an illusion. Our personal favourite: Canadian Maple Crunch. OG Tasty Buds are available for purchase here and here.
