Christmas trees: Best of this year’s holiday cannabis products
Published on December 1, 2023 by David Wylie
‘Tis the season for holiday trees.
This year’s limited selection of festive cannabis products are in stores. The Christmassy offerings vary from advent calendars filled with pre-rolls to festive flavoured vape carts.
We’ve compiled some of the more interesting offerings this year that have a seasonal twist.
Advent calendars filled with pre-rolls
What’s more seasonal than an advent calendar?
Herbal Dispatch has one packed with 50-pre-roll surprises. Enjoy a new strain for 25 days from a nice selection of BC growers and brands, including Golden Spruce, High Quadz, Cake & Caviar, Remo Farms, Ross’ Gold, BC Bud Co, Magi Cannabis, Cheap and Cheerful, and Weathered Island. There’s 30 grams inside for about $330.
Color Cannabis has a tree-shaped calendar adorned with eight different pre-rolls sorted by filter hue. They include old-time favourites such as Pedro’s Sweet Sativa and Mango Haze, as well as others like Baked Grape Pie and Mint Cookie Cush. It’s about $70.
Northern Lights, Jack Frost, Sugarplum Fairy
If you’re looking for themed pre-rolls not in calendar format, The Station House Holiday Pre-roll Six-Pack Sampler has a selection of festive strains: Northern Lights, Jack Frost, Gingerbread Kush, Milk and Cookies, Sugarplum Fairy, and Christmas Tree Cake. It’s about $23.
Potluck’s Christmas cookie cannabis flower
For those who like to roll their own, Potluck has a couple of eighths inspired by holiday desserts, Sugar Cookies and Gingerbread Kush. Sugar Cookies is a Hybrid strain with a terpene profile of Limonene, Farnesene, and Caryophyllene. Gingerbread Kush is Indica-dominant and has a profile of Pinene, Humulene, and Ocimene.
London Fog or Cranberry Punch?
BZAM brand ~ness is leaning into eggnog, with two products flavoured London Fog: a three-pack of infused pre-rolls, and a one-gram, 510-thread vape cart. They’re said to be a sweet creamy vanilla, with a sprinkle of spice. Top terpenes in the vape are Caryophyllene, Humulene, and Limonene.
Lamplighter went with Cranberry Punch in its seasonal one-gram, 510-thread vape cart. It’s Indica-dominant with cranberry and pomegranate flavours.
Something that’s sweet
Edibles are great for the sweet-tooth. The Hazy Camper has a selection of holiday inspired chocolates, including Hazy Mint, Calming Cranberry, and Vivacious Orange. They also have Black Forest Chocolate, which has been out for a while (and is great).
Cannabis in the bath
Finally, while not necessarily seasonal themed, Stewart Farms has a three-pack of bath bombs. They are Double Dream (floral), Citrus Farmer (citrus), and Kaya’s Koffee (mocha). The bath bombs are hand-pressed with 100mg CBD and 100mg THC per fizzy sphere.
