Designers and product producers are excited to introduce a bevy of cannabis merchandise that boasts a more positive image as well as top-notch innovation. You don’t have to have a cannabis license to order cool marijuana stuff that is relevant for folks who partake of this medicine. What follows is a list of 15 marijuana gift ideas in the areas of accessories, clothing and entertainment that are guaranteed to light up that special someone on your holiday list.

3. Herbal Holidays Playing Cards.

What if you could use these as an ice-breaker to talk about some aspect of this medicine? These cards are an affirmation of this medicine and a conversation which makes them a great gift for the office or among a group of friends or family who are supportive, but “don’t talk about it.”
