The 4/20 Guide to Getting Your CBD Fix

by Brycen Saunders

It's holiday season! But this holiday doesn't entail candy canes, snowmen or chocolate covered bunnies. It involves another type of flower. Like Frank Ocean said, one that provides "a cheap vacation." It's 4/20! So whether it involves artistic roach papers, cannabis infused beverages, fragrances, or skincare, this is for those who love everything weed-related.

New York recently became the 15th state to legalize recreational marijuana, setting a new precedent for the domestic decriminalization of the substance. Now with legal recreational use in the nation's most populous city, this 4/20 is slated to reach new heights. Whether you're a weed novice or connoisseur, prepare for a fun and high holiday.

Los Angeles-based cannabis brand Pure Beauty recently dropped Little Strong Drink (LSD) just in time for the 4/20 holiday. The cannabis-infused beverage boasts notes of concord grapes, cardamon and Rajasthan grown ashwagandha. The drink is not for the faint of heart with its 2 ounces harboring 100 mg of THC. For the smoke connoisseur, Pure Beauty also has mini-joints, one-gram joints and sleek cannabis cigarettes (for those who want to enhance their smoking aesthetic).

Wearable merchandise is also featured on their webstore featuring sweatshirts, t-shirts, and sweatpants and more. The proceeds for the new t-shirt styles are donated to the APPI Safety Badge, an organization committing to protecting the Asian community against hate crimes.

Now this fragrance won't get you high, but might offer a slight buzz. The Herbalist is the new eau de parfum 'functional fragrance' collaboration between Heretic Parfum and cannabis brand Drew Martin. The sativa-hybrid strain Jack Herer serves as the base of the fragrance while the rest of the scent was built using notes of lemon, tangerine, crushed pine needles, yuzu, frankincense and hinoki.

"Cannabis is a special and powerful plant," said Drew Martin, founder of Drew Martin cannabis and botanical pre-rolls. "Many use the plant therapeutically, many more use it for fun or relaxation. The Herbalist is another expression of this plant that resists categorization. I hope it can play a role in expanding people's understanding of cannabis."

The Herbalist is available starting 4/20 at Sweet Flower cannabis boutiques across Los Angeles and for pre-order online at The fragrance retails at $250.
