KANTOKA PRESENTS: A BUDDHA BARN HOLIDAY GIFT GUIDE

 

Somewhere between Whole Foods and a yoga studio (really, just name one), you’ll find Buddha Barn, a Kitsilano-based licensed cannabis retailer.

Located at 2179 W 4th Avenue, along the neighbourhood’s famed shopping street, Buddha Barn has been operating under a municipal license since February 2013, and received its provincial license this past September.

The Kantoka crew dropped by to chat with general manager Lindsay Bell to learn more about what the locals are hunting for, and showcase some great last-minute gift ideas for the holiday season.

 

Banana Bros. Otto

The hustle and grind can get the best of us, and Banana Bros. is capitalizing on the grind, literally. The Otto is a grinder and cone filler in one, designed to prep the perfect pre-roll in seconds. Pre-rolls are a best seller at Buddha Bar, who boast an impressive list of options. This machine provides in-house convenience so you can bust up your favourite bud and be ready to roll out without rolling your own.

 

My Bud Vase

This beautiful line of bongs is the embodiment of the age-old joke of grandma finding your piece and using it as a vase. My Bud Vase celebrates cannabis consumption with unique items that you can incorporate into your daily decor without feeling like you’re paying homage to your stoner days in your parents’ basement.

 

Ahlot Discovery Series Vol. 1

If you’re looking to shake things up this season, try gifting Ahlot’s premier cannabis collection. This five-pack features single gram samples from different cannabis companies of varying strengths and cannabinoid ratios. A great option for introducing someone to legal cannabis, or for your bud who could use a little variety.
