“On the first day of Christmas my true love gave to me…a return ticket to Amsterdam and THC lube”
Whilst covid has tried and succeeded in ruining practically all of our plans for the last few years, there is always something hopeful about Christmas time. Yep, Christmas is finally here again. A day of joy, festivities and family. Or, perhaps, not. Maybe you love Christmas or find it sad and stressful, either way it’s coming and there’s nothing we can do about it. So, make a strong drink, eat lots of food, and start thinking about potential gifts for your friends, colleagues and loved ones. In fact, there’s nothing better than giving a gift. You get to make someone else happy, and you don’t have to feel stressed about having to pretend you like something you’re given. However, the truth is that whilst physical gifts are all well and good, nothing beats an experience. Experiences sit comfortably in our mind and make us who we are. That’s why this year, we’ve created a list of the top 10 best cannabis experiences you can buy your loved one this holiday.
Christmas is such a fun time of the year, filled with decoration, good food, family and friends, and of course, recreation.

The first on the christmas experience lift is, technically, an object but it most definitely leads to an unforgettable experience. Cannabis and sex most definitely have a history longer than the relationship between the loved one you may decide to buy this product for. THC has been known to enhance the senses, making sex and ogasm an even more extremely enjoyable activity. Therefore, purchasing THC and CBD lube could be the most caring and orgasmic experience you can give this Christmas. Green Matters says:
“Both CBD and THC act as a vasodilator, meaning it opens up the blood vessels bringing more blood to the clitoris (erectile tissue) making your orgasms more intense and the vagina more lubricated.”
2. Return Ticket to Amsterdam
In the materialistic world we live in, some people find physical gifts to be an added object that clutters up their shelves. Stuff stuff stuff…but what about experiences? Experiences can sit joyfully in our brain and change the types of people we are. So, why not buy your loved one a cannabis experience this Christmas? Amsterdam is a cannabis-utopia and a place where enthusiasts can walk the streets freely and joyfully. With over 160 coffeeshops in the centre of Amsterdam alone, a romantic or platonic venture to Amsterdam with your loved one would be a great gift. The cost of this trip will depend on where you are based but, rest assured, it is worth it.

3. Spannabis 2022
There are many festivals and events that exist solely to celebrate the wonders of cannabis and all of the many cannabinoids and terpenes it contains. One of these is Spannabis. Spannabis is a festival in Barcelona, Spain, full of food, music and fun. But, most importantly, the event consists of talks, lectures and pop-up stalls curated by some of the best cannabis-thinkers around the world. Why not give someone an experience to be part of the cannabis revolution this Christmas? A chance to make a difference and speak to the people who are making a difference every day. In a way, cannabis is a political movement. Give your loved one a chance to be part of that movement. Spannabis takes place in Barcelona from 11-13th March 2022. Tickets are on sale now.
4. Return Ticket to California
Europe vs America…the big debate. Amsterdam vs California…the even bigger debate. Well, the truth is, whilst much of the world is still fighting over whether CBD should be legal, California and Amsterdam both deserve the recognition they deserve. Nonetheless, a return ticket to California would be a top cannabis experience to buy your loved one this Christmas. Not only is there beach after beach, Los Angeles and Hollywood, but cannabis is fully legal there. California has almost 1000 cannabis dispensaries and the hot weather combines perfectly to create an ideal cannabis-lifestyle. If you’re looking for a hotter and bigger version of Amsterdam, why not head over to California with your loved one? What a gift that would be.
5. Harold & Kumar
Whilst Netflix and online TV dominate the world, there’s still something quite special about buying someone a DVD. It’s retro, it’s heart-felt and it promises an experience. There’s nothing quite like the experience of sitting down and watching the stoner classics Harold & Kumar. These two stars broke out in the 2000s and released several films where they would get up to mischief, usually led by their desire and search for cannabis. Most stoner films and TV shows now have learnt their craft from Harold & Kumar. Buying a gift like this will ensure that you and your loved one will set aside some time to enjoy a wholesome and hugely entertaining stoner film experience together. What better way to enjoy Christmas.
6. Glastonbury Ticket
If you fancy giving someone a random but inspired trip to the UK this Christmas, then why not get them the hottest ticket out there. A ticket to Glastonbury 2022. Glastonbury is the most elite and popular music festival in England and always has the biggest and best artists involved. Hosted in the quintessentially English town of Glastonbury, this festival is a place where cannabis lives in abundance. The next festival will take place in June 2022, and Billie Eilish is one of the confirmed headliners. Head over to Glastonbury, purchase some cannabis, and enjoy one of the greatest festivals to ever bless the earth. Music and cannabis go hand in hand.
7. Cannabis World Cup 2022
Whilst some long for the football world cup and the rugby world cup, cannabis enthusiasts wait patiently for the cannabis world cup. Hosted in Amsterdam every year, this festival is an event with everything.
“The Cannabis World Cup Festival is a three-day celebration of cannabis culture, showcasing world-leading brands, products, pioneers, workshops, technology, music, food, fashion networking events and conferences, including the prestigious Cannabis World Cup competition ceremony.”
One cannabis strain comes out victorious and the winner is given the cannabis world cup. In 2022, the world cup will take place from 1st-3rd July. A ticket to this event is an elite gift that only comes from the best of the best. Why not be the best of the best this Christmas?
8. Planet Earth II
Anyone who’s ever enjoyed the wonders of THC and watched David Attenborough’s Planet Earth II will know that it is an out-of-body experience. The incredible footage, animals, sounds and narration make Planet Earth one of the best TV series ever created. But, what if you could purchase it in 4K and give it as an experiential gift this christmas? Well, lucky for you and your loved one…you can. Planet Earth II in 4K is an epic visual experience that will only be enhanced by your love for cannabis. These two go hand in hand. This Christmas experience gift is a nuanced and well-thought out one.
9. Burning Man 2022
Burning Man festival is probably one of the most intriguing festivals in the world. Held in Nevada, USA, in Black Rock City, this festival is more than just a cannabis experience, it’s a way of life. It’s about community and togetherness. It also has an aesthetic that looks quite a lot like Mad Max. Burning Man opens its arms to everyone and anyone, and promotes the freedom of expression. Because of this, cannabis and drugs are easily available and, if anything, encouraged.
“Burning Man is not a festival! It’s a city wherein almost everything that happens is created entirely by its citizens, who are active participants in the experience.”
The next Burning Man Festival will take place in 2022, and hopefully won’t be stopped by the horrors of covid. Purchasing a ticket to Burning Man as a Christmas gift for your loved one could be an absolute eye-opener for them.
10. Ayahuasca Retreat
Ayahuasca is a south-american hallucinogenic brew made from natural plants. Ayahuasca retreats are potentially the most mind-opening experience anyone can have on this planet. Not only that, but ayahuasca retreats are hosted by professional experts who assist you on your journey to self-discovery. These events usually happen in South America, and the best ones occur in Peru. Although ayahuasca retreats will cause people to lose control, it’s a true chance to see differently and to cleanse oneself. Although it might seem like a rogue Christmas gift, this could be the experience of a lifetime for your loved one.
Conclusion – Best Cannabis Experiences to Gift Your Loved One
A physical gift and an experience gift are two different roads to go down. Some people prefer the former, some prefer the latter. Either Way, there’s no doubt that an experience will sit in your memory for many years after. Therefore, why not get your loved one a cannabis experience this Christmas?
