We’re halfway into June, and it’s just about time for that one day we take every year to celebrate our fathers and let them know how much we appreciate them and everything they do.
Whatever your go-to type of present for your dad is, you may want to add to or even replace your standard gift fare with a cannabinoid-enhanced treat of some kind.
With the legal cannabis market growing by leaps and bounds, gift-seekers now have a wide selection of products.
The currently available selection of pre-rolls, flowers, concentrates, topicals, edibles, tinctures, and other cannabis products is vast enough to provide something for virtually every dad out there.
Whatever form of cannabis the father figure in your life prefers, here are a few suggestions to help elevate Father’s Day this year.
Good Stuff Beverages
For a non-alcoholic beverage that will lift Dad’s spirits but won’t give him a beer belly, there are a few refreshing natural alternatives to try from the Good Stuff Beverage Co.
Southern California-crafted and cannabis-infused, Good Stuff has been making its beverages since 2015 with natural ingredients and no corn syrup, GMOs, gluten, or sodium benzoate.
Each 100mg bottle is fat-free, sodium-free, and has only 3 grams of sugar and 13 calories.
By comparison, single cans of Coors Light and Bud Light have 103 calories.
Good Stuff beverages come in Lemonade (honey-sweetened), Strawberry Hibiscus Lemonade, and naturally-caffeinated (125mg) Raspberry Iced Tea varieties.
The Good Stuff Lemonades are made with real pureed fruit, and the Raspberry Iced Tea is naturally vegan.
If your dad has a favorite non-alcoholic beverage that also doesn’t have a THC content, Curaleaf’s Select brand has something new to elevate that drink.
Select’s recently-debuted line of Squeeze beverage enhancers will instantly transform any kind of liquid refreshment into a cannabis-infused treat.
Squeeze beverage enhancers come in four flavorful varieties; Lemon-Lime, Strawberry Lemonade, Watermelon, and Hint of Sweet.
Each of Squeeze’s flavor varieties is made with nanoencapsulated THC, which is water-soluble and easily mixes into any beverage.
Nanoencapsulation not only allows Squeeze flavors to quickly blend with other liquids, but it also allows for a faster onset time of effects than with traditional solid or liquid THC edibles.
Squeeze’s THC effects can generally be felt within 5—15 minutes.
Voted Best Edible of 2020 by Thrillist Platinum Vape has a diverse line of gummies that are as potent as they are tasty.
Packages of PV gummies come in Watermelon, Fruit Punch, Blue
Raspberry, Green Apple-Lime, Birthday Cake, Banana Cream Pie, Peach-Mango, and Berry-Lemon flavors.
I recently received some 100mg bags of PV live resin-infused gummies in Melonade (Hybrid), Blackberry Diesel (Sativa), and Forbidden Gusherz (Indica) varieties that I found to be some of the most delicious cannabis candies I’ve tried.
With a virtually nonexistent cannabis flavor, PV gummies are an easy pick for a flavorful edible that packs a punch.
Platinum vape also has a broad selection of vape cartridges, disposable vapes, dart pods, pre-rolls, THC-infused chocolates, and premium cannabis flower products that make great gifts for that special dad.
Plus CBD Gummies
For the dad who needs some relaxation without any of THC’s psychoactive effects this Father’s Day, CV Sciences recently rolled out some new gummies that can help him relax and get some good sleep
Fortified with L-Theanine and 5-HTP, CV Science’s Plus CBD Calm gummies can help ease tension, soothe irritability and help foster an overall sense of contentment.
If Dad’s been having difficulty sleeping, the Plus CBD Sleep gummies have magnolia, lemon balm, and melatonin to help support relaxation and a health circadian rhythm.
If your father is the active type, Plus CBD also has a CBD roll-on for soothing the periodic aches that can come with regular exercise.
Founded by System of a Down bassist Shavo Odadjian, 22Red offers a selection of cannabis flowers, pre-rolls, and vapes in THC and CBD varieties.

Flavorings in 22Red vape cartridges are steam-derived from natural botanicals.
In the modern world of legal cannabis, rapper B-Real’s alter ego from the Cypress Hill IV album has become a real-life provider of THC and CBD products.
One of the alter ego’s latest offerings is the Dr. Greenthumb X G Pen vaporizer and accessory line, created through a collaboration with the creators of G Pen vapes.
A perfect gift for the dabbing dad, the X G Pen Connect vaporizer attaches to a dab rig for a torch-less dabbing experience.
For the flower-fan-father, the X G Pen Dash dry herb vaporizer can be loaded with cannabis flowers for a flame-less smoking session.

Helmand Valley Growers
Marine veteran-owned Helmand Valley Growers Company (HVGC) has debuted a line of high-THC pre-rolls that will get dad Semper-High.
Each 1-gram pre-roll is carefully selected and tested, with THC levels at a mind-blowing 27 percent.
HVGC also offers a selection of vape cartridges in Purple Trainwreck (Hybrid), Afghanimal (Indica), Sour Diesel (Sativa), Purple Kush (Indica), Headband (Hybrid), and Sour Lemon Haze (Sativa) varieties.
A gift of HVGC products is something that both you and your dad can feel good about, but not just because of their quality.
All profits from sales of HVGC products go to the Battle Brothers Foundation to help fund studies on how cannabis can treat veterans living with PTSD, chronic pain, and other ailments.
If dad is well-stocked in cannabis flower, without a doubt, rolling papers are the perfect accessory for a good session.
But you’ll want to make sure the papers are of the best quality.
New York-based Z’s Life offers a collection of organic Zbook rolling papers in Standard and King sizes, offering an elegant upgrade to the standard cannabis wraps.
Each stylish pack contains 50 ultra-thin rolling papers bound together with a gold-plated magnetic package.
With a diverse selection of designs and colors such as Woodgrain, Cherry Leather, Forest Shimmer, Holographic, Copper, and Opal, you are certain to find one that dad will be sure to love.
For fathers who might not be partakers of THC, but enjoy CBD products, the modern cannabis market has plenty to offer.
The Gift provides plant-based, vegan hemp-derived products ethically sourced from small women and minority-owned farms and laboratories.
Farmers in The Gifts network use restorative agricultural processes, and the brand’s tins contain no chemicals in the lining, making them infinitely sustainable.
The Gift’s oils also come in fully recyclable glass bottles.
For the dad who needs some muscle relief after a good workout or something to ease stress, fight inflammation, and soothe pain, The Gift has just the thing.
The Gift’s Rejuvenation Hemp Balm is made with whole-plant extracts to moisturize skin, quickly ease pain, and soothe inflammation.
The Balance Whole Plant Hemp Oil is formulated to help balance mood, support sleep, boost energy, and support the body’s endocannabinoid system.
For a lush head of hair with a signature scented beard, The Gift has the Reinvigoration Scalp and Beard Serum, formulated with phytonutrients to foster a healthy environment for hair follicles.
The serum is also free of chemicals and cruelty.
Bend, Oregon-based Metolius Hemp offers a selection of premium CBD/CBG pre-rolls, moon rocks, lip pouches, topicals, and cannagars.
Metolius River Logs cannagars contain organic CBD and CBG flowers hand-rolled inorganic palm leaves and coated with CBD distillate, CBD isolate, and CBG kief.
The brand’s River Rolls pre-rolls contain premium organic hemp-sourced CBD and CBG flowers and a coating of CBD distillate, CBD isolate, and CBG kief.
For the moon rock experience without the THC, Metolius’ River Rocks are made with organic CBG hemp flowers and coated with CBD distillate and CBG kief.
Metolius also has CBD isolate River Dips lip pouches, which are intended to help people move away from tobacco products to a healthier cannabis lifestyle.
Hempy Father’s Day
Whether your canna-dad prefers THC, CBD, CBG, or all of the above, the legal market has provided a path to new and exciting products that are sure to please.
But if the traditional Father’s Day tie is on the gift list for 2021, at least you can complete the look with a classy cannabis leaf tie clip from ProCuffs.
Have a Happy Father’s Day!
