Whether you like it or not, the holidays are here. Which means you’ll likely be spending most of your energy shopping for other people, making all sorts of travel arrangements, or maybe even planning elaborate dinners to impress your in-laws. That’s why it’s important to make sure you’re treating yourself as well. There’s no better way to self-gift than with some self care, especially in the form of cannabis. So, take some time out of your busy holiday schedule to plan a trip to MedMen’s downtown Oak Park location and grab some goodies for your own stocking.
Ahead, five holiday must-haves, from CBD topicals to sooth your mall-worn feet to an indica tea that will help you relax at the end of a long day.
Whether you’re sore from a workout or wrapping a million presents, a good CBD pain-relieving topical like Mary’s Muscle Freeze is something you should always keep in your medicine cabinet.
If you’re a fan of sour candy, switch out your usual cannabis gummies for something that’s a bit more tangy, like these Fruit Tarts from Incredible Edibles, which contain 5mg of THC per piece.
Is it really the holidays if chocolate isn’t involved? Tuck one of Bhang’s tasty bars into your own stocking for a happily stoned Christmas treat.
Sweet tea might feel more like a summer beverage, but this indica-spiked version can help you chill out mid-winter, too, after all those exhausting social obligations.
Prefer to vape your holiday stresses away? Pick up Blue Dream from RYTHM’s disposable vape line. This sativa-leaning hybrid will put you in a happy and relaxed mood without getting glued to the couch.
