Giving. The Best Gift of All.

Inspired by the giving nature of the cannabis plant, experience the true joy of giving this holiday.

The season of giving is upon us and this year more than ever, it’s important to remember what’s at the heart of this popular holiday season. It’s not just about the tangible items we are used to receiving this time of year, it’s also about fostering true community spirit.  Peace, love and harmony are the roots of the cannabis community, read below to learn about the plants giving history and get some advice to make the most of the season.

The cannabis plant itself gives many gifts, expecting little in return. It provides valuable nutrition from sources such as hemp seeds and protein powders etc. Cannabis is also known to have potential medicinal benefits, which are currently being researched with the help of legalization. Also, several hemp by-products can be made.  These include all types of clothing, paper products, construction materials, biofuel and more.

Historically, those in the cannabis community are known for supporting each other. Often sharing their precious herb with those in need and educating the public, at their own risk, about its responsible use well before legalization. A good example of the concept that sharing is caring.

Some advice for this holiday is to be aware of other’s needs! There are many ways to show kindness.  Consider sending loved ones a handwritten note or drop-off a meal to a struggling friend.  Some social distancing alternatives include planning a virtual get-together or outdoor activity if the weather permits.  Be compassionate to one another, as the holiday season can be difficult for some, particularly this year.

Many adults choose to celebrate this occasion by indulging in traditional holiday spirits. Giving and consuming alcohol is considered a long-standing and socially acceptable behavior in most sectors of society. Instead of beer or wine, many Canadian’s are now switching to infused beverages and edibles. This year consider giving the cannabis connoisseur in your life a new experience!
