I should work this into my daily routine

Now that Thanksgiving is back around, families and friends are gathering for some good eats, drinks, and sports. For those of us who like to partake of cannabis, we’d love it if you would check out our very first cannabis-themed gift guide for Turkey Day.

I wasn’t able to get this guide up earlier in the week in order to help the readers prepare but we’re looking at the long game here as Thanksgiving leads into the weekend. Also, depending on what style of cannabis you consume and the method, the leftovers will come in quite handy.

What I enjoyed the most about compiling this guide was the variety of ways to experience the vast wide world of cannabis. Speaking for myself, I use cannabis chiefly for its therapeutic benefits and not for leisure but there’s nothing wrong with adults looking for a natural way to unwind from the stresses of their day.

From topical applications, infused drinks, and powders that can be added to all kinds of foods, flower, vaporizers, concentrates, and beyond, there is something for every kind of cannabis enthusiast below.

I’m fairly new to covering this growing industry and I’m excited to see how the innovative minds behind these companies expand their wares. I want to thank everyone for allowing me the opportunity to share your products with our audience. We’re very, ahem, “dank-ful.”

Check out Hip-Hop Wired’s Thanksgiving Weekend cannabis gift guide below.

Cali Sober bills itself as the “totally legal THC mocktail” and it achieves this distinction by using hemp-derived THC while keeping under the legal weight. It’s not meant to get you super buzzed but instead, it’s an alternative to hard seltzers and infused drinks. The company is aiming to launch nationwide and we’re excited to see what’s next.

23. OOKA x Seven9

OOKA x Seven9 Source:OOKA

OOKA is easily one of the best devices I’ve ever seen up close and personal. Sure, I’ve had hookah before as it’s unavoidable in the Washington, D.C. area,  but nothing that’s this slick-looking and functional. Further, OOKA takes the guesswork out of fumbling with coals and the like with its unique pod system. Even better, Seven9 offers a selection of cannabis-infused pods for the session. Sign us up for more nicotine and THC-free options though!

24. O.Pen Sesh

O.Pen Sesh Source:O.Pen

One of the things I love in covering cannabis products and devices is being privy to all of the new ways companies are improving the user experience. O.Pen, a leader in the vaporizer space, has a new device, Sesh. With the ability to load concentrates or use a 510 thread cartridge, O.Pen’s Sesh is both striking visually and super convenient.
