The best part about living in the future is the availability of weed for the people who need it most. If you have a loved one who suffers from a chronic condition or someone who’s just starting to feel older, you should consider giving them cannabis. Here are 6 of our favorite marijuana products that are mellow enough for smokers who haven't toked up since the 70s.

Kiva Bars by Kiva Confections
Nobody is ever disappointed to receive chocolate as a gift. Edibles are very popular among the aging population because they don’t have to smoke the product, which can be difficult with chronic pain or other conditions. They make chocolate with only CBD, both CBD and THC, and THC only. A great gift for the novice cannabis user to the canna-sseur. Kiva comes in 8 different flavors and tastes great.
AbsoluteXtracts Cartridges by Care by Design
This is another cannabis-only gift, but it’s perfect for anyone. Care By Design specializes in extractions and makes vape pens that contain both THC and CBD. You can an 18:1 CBD:THC ratio if your loved one wants relief but doesn’t want to feel high. You can also get 1:1 CBD:THC pens that WILL give you a buzz. The AbsoluteXtracts line is the high THC line that comes in strain-specific flavors, like Royal Kush.
CBD Gummies by Plus
Sadly, many of our parents and grandparents experience some type of chronic pain. They’d be happy to receive some CBD gummies in their stocking this year to help them manage that pain. Plus makes CBD gummies that contain 5mg of non-psychoactive CBD. They are made with beef gelatin so they are slow to absorb and long-lasting. These gummies also make a great gift for your parents that have never messed with weed but are interested to try it because some Plus gummies are made with a very small beginners dose of THC. You can get a dose as high as 9:1 CBD:THC.
