The holidays were always tough, but through the pandemic — and all of 2020 — they're just plain weird. Covid cases are on the rise, unemployment is at an all-time high, flying is risky. This year, instead of searching for a holiday normalcy that no longer exists, escapism may be the best route.
And who knows how to escape better than the dabber in your life? Cannabis's most potent form shines in situations like a 2020 holiday season — and so do the dabbers who dab it.
Though it is an intense method of intake, dabbing is one of the cleanest and most effective ways to consume cannabis. Especially given all the swaggy new dab gear and mind-blowing extracts that have come out in recent years.
To honor the dabs, dab gear, and dab stars who have the right idea about how to weather this holiday season, here is our gift guide to the devoted dabbers in your life.
