Father’s Day is coming soon and you haven’t got any gifts for your dad yet? Worry not, because we have got you covered. We’re truly excited about the fact that cannabis is gaining more acceptance among our parents’ generation.
Chances are that if the tides remain as favorable as they are now, weed will overtake booze as the go-to recreational products. And it’s good, you know, since cannabis is incomparably more beneficial than alcohol, not to mention that it’s much safer, too.
So, dear friends, now you have a chance to introduce your dad to cannabis on Father’s Day; and if your daddy already knows how to handle weed, it’s all the better because this smart cheat sheet will help you elevate his cannabis experience to the whole new level.
Are you ready for a large dose of green goodies to celebrate this special occasion?
We hope so. Here’s our list of 6 smart cannabis gifts for Father’s Day.
1. Get Your Dad a Weed Starting Kit
If the old ‘Pa is just starting to get into cannabis, find him a cannabis beginner pack that will introduce him to the herb holistically.
Of course, you’re not going to let him swallow a whole dab from a bong, because let’s face it, you don’t want your daddy to get faded in the blink of an eye. But starting his adventure with cannabis by sharing a pre-rolled joint to let him feel the buzz and elevate his mood like he’s never had before?
This sounds like a fair offer.
2. Give Him the Feast of His Life With Weed Edibles
Now, if your dad is a bold man, he will surely want to try some edibles. First of all, they are healthier than joints. Secondly, and most importantly, edibles are the food that triggers munchies which you can later quench with a next piece of this delicious weed gummy, and then… yeah, buddy, get the munchies kicking again!
It can be a neverending story.
3. Wax, Anyone?
Finally, you can both try vaping some concentrates form a vape pen to dot the i’s and cross the t’s at the end of the day. Keep in mind that concentrates are the most potent form of cannabis, so we’d suggest that you both approach them with baby steps.
Nonetheless, it’s worth noting that since cannabis concentrates are so powerful, they can help in alleviating different ailments more efficiently than dry herbs or edibles. That being said, if your dad struggles with any health concerns that can be eased by cannabis, it can bring him long-term relief.
4. A Vape Pen For Healthier Habits and Greater Efficiency
Smoking weed is a beautiful ritual, but unfortunately, it’s the least healthy method of cannabis consumption. When smoking cannabis, you deliver harmful substances like carcinogens to your system and you cause damage to both the lungs and the throat.
Moreover, 50% of all cannabis compounds gets destroyed due to combustion, and another 20-30% gets wasted as the smoke evaporates to the sky. It’s a far cry from being efficient, isn’t it?
So, how about buying your dad a vape pen instead? Vaporizing cannabis delivers almost the full content of cannabinoids, terpenes and flavonoids to your system, not to mention that cannabis doesn’t get burned in the vaping chamber, which will help your dad work on his healthy habits and, at the same time, enjoy weed like a savvy connoisseur.
On top of that, most portable vaporizers are easily concealable, so if your dad wants to stay low-profile, a vape pen will become his best companion.
5. A Bouquet of Different Strains
Buying flowers for Mother’s Day is a dead giveaway; after all, women love flowers, and flowers love women. However, when it comes to your dad, you may want to consider buying a bouquet of slightly different flowers.
The abundance of different weed strains is almost overwhelming, so Father’s Day and cannabis can be all about the strain hunting.
If your dad is a cannabis user, things are pretty simple. You just ask him about his favorite strains, and then, you form a bouquet of pungent buds to please his endocannabinoid system.
If, on the other hand, he’s a weed newbie, you may ask for aromas and flavors he’s particularly fond of. The “Summer Lovin’ Pack” will be a perfect tool to deceive your dad by making him think that you’re planning to buy him perfumes. Imagine his face when he opens a box full of green goodies for some Father’s Day sampling. You will see that men, too, have feelings.
6. Books… Books Are Gold
It may happen that your dad is not convinced about trying weed because he still has this stoner stigma at the back of his head.
As it is widely known, nothing beats stereotypes more than good education, and when it comes to parents and cannabis, education is of the paramount importance. They need to understand that the plant have been stigmatized for so for a very wrong reason, and the current research on marijuana shows that the plant is the closest to human beings because of the existence of phytocannabinoids in cannabis and their interaction with the endocannabinoid system.
Weed can be very beneficial for our help, especially for people at the age of our parents. That being said, it’s good if they read a book or two about the herb and its history in culture and medicine. The Emperor Wears No Clothes, Weed the People, Pot Culture, Cannabis Pharmacy – these are only some of the many titles worth reading.
