Ten best marijuana gifts of 2012
It's been a big year for marijuana in the state of Colorado, and for a few stoners who've been nice this year, it's about to get even better. Have pot lovers on your list and no idea what stocking stuffers they'd like? Forget the malls. Forget even SkyMall. We've lined up the top ten must-haves for the cannabis connoisseur in your life in our Stoner MacGyver holiday gift guide.
10. A personal vaporizer
Over the last year or so we've reviewed a few stealth, e-cigarette styled personal vaporizers, ranging from glycerin-based mixtures that vaporize with a not-so-obvious smell to full-on hash oil-burning vaporizers so small they could be confused for a lipstick case or a small lighter. Price ranges from $70 to $150, but we found our favorite on the low end of that scale in The Cloud. While the vaporized hash oil isn't as inconspicuous as other mixtures when burned, the ability to pull full hits of high-strength concentrate without an expensive glass oil bubbler and blow torch make The Cloud unbeatable. Snag one at shops like Heady Glass or forget the holiday traffic and order online at GotVape.com.
Reserva Privada Seeds
9. A variety pack of Colorado cannabis seeds
Why chop down your Christmas tree when you can actually grow one, then smoke it? Over the past three years, Colorado has quite literally become the breeding ground for some of the world's best cannabis. In light of that, bolster your genetic reserves with beans from New House Seeds, T.H. Seeds, Reserva Privada Colorado, Rare Dankness and even Centennial Seeds, if you can still manage to find them for sale. Since ordering seeds online isn't technically legal, your best bet as a medical marijuana patient is to find seeds for sale in your local dispensaries. Check www.weedmaps.com to see who has what; most seed packs sell for around $40-60.
8. A year's supply of rolling papers
While simple, this is a gift that keeps on giving to the medical marijuana puffer in your life. Even a single case of papers from RAW means no more running out of papers. You'll also get a much better price: a box of fifty packs of king-size papers will run you about $55 and contains a whopping1,600 papers. Considering king-size papers can run as high as $3 a pack, it's well worth it. Best bet for the cheapest price is online through sites like Rollingpaperdepot.com.
