The California 420 Gift Guide for 2022
420 may be a global celebration today, but it’s important to remember the holiday’s deep Californian roots. The tradition first originated in the 1970s when a group of San Rafael High School students would meet in the afternoons at 4:20 pm to smoke. The code was later popularized by the Grateful Dead and well, the rest is history.
To celebrate California’s biggest 420 yet, we’ve curated a comprehensive collection of local offerings featuring premium flower, delectable gummies and next-level infused beverages.
Whether it’s your first or 50th 420, our gift guide has something for every kind of consumer.
