Christmas is the perfect excuse to try out some great cannabis topicals, which are perfect as a stocking stuffer or gift for you or your loved ones.
What is a topical?
According to Leafly, “Topicals are cannabis-infused lotions, balms, and oils that are absorbed through the skin for localized relief of pain, soreness, and inflammation. Because they’re non-intoxicating, topicals are often chosen by patients who want the therapeutic benefits of marijuana without the cerebral euphoria associated with other delivery methods.” So to put it plainly, they will not get you high, but they will relax you and make you feel great all over! TOKE’s luxurious cannabis topicals are perfect for your cannabis-loving loved ones, for those who love to be pampered, or for anyone looking to relax and enjoy the benefits of cannabis – without getting high.
If you do want to be traditionally high during your bath, we recommend smoking a joint before, or even in, the bath…just like our little elfie friend.
Cannabis topicals have been used for millennia. Ancient Egyptians used cannabis flowers and honey applied topically to ease the pain of childbirth. In some parts of Europe, as well as ancient China, cannabis topicals were applied to wounds. And they can now be purchased at your favourite legal cannabis dispensaries! As bath bombs – one of our holiday favourites!
Bath bombs are the perfect stocking stuffers. Who wouldn’t want to treat themself to a nice, relaxing and soothing bath, made all the more soothing with the near-magical powers of cbd?
There are many benefits to cannabis bath bombs. They relieve stress almost instantly, they are wonderfully aromatic, they soothe stiff or painful joints or muscles, and they are great for your skin – in particular, dry skin, which is so common here in Ontario in the winter!
The star ingredient in cannabis bath bombs is CBD. CBD is a non-psychoactive compound found in hemp. It reduces stress and anxiety, relieve muscle and joint pain, and even helps you to fall asleep. Together with the hot water of a bath, CBD bath bombs are a one way ticket to dreamland. Many bath bombs also contain THC. While it will not get you high via a bath bomb, THC has several other benefits including its inflammation reducing properties and moisturizing tendencies.

The set includes three different and very special bath bombs.
Blue Dream: Born from classic parent genetics, Blueberry and Haze. The dominant profile of Blue Dream consists of myrcene, pinene, limonene, beta-caryophyllene and linalool and is represented via the pure essential oils of sweet orange, lemongrass, frankincense, black pepper & lavender.
Bubba Kush: Cannabis folklore suggests Bubba Kush was first created when an OG Kush strain was crossbred with Northern Lights. Dominant terpenes of the strain: beta-caryophyllene, limonene, myrcene and linalool, represented with ylang ylang, lavender, white grapefruit and cassia essential oils.
Chocolate Hashberry: Born from a cross between two classic Kush cuts; Chocolate Kush and Blackberry Kush, resulting in a robust and delicious aroma of chocolate and florals. The dominant terpenes found in this strain include myrcene, beta-caryophyllene and limonene, represented via rose petals, cocoa butter, and pure essential oils of chamomile, palmarosa, copaiba and a blend of citrus oils.
In addition to bath bombs, several other spa worthy topicals are available at your favourite online cannabis dispensary and in-person weed shop, TOKE Cannabis. Here are some ideas for stocking stuffers for everyone on your list!
For the person you want to kiss:
Try Tidal’s French Vanilla lip balm, which contains CBD and replenishing ingredients like calendula oil and cocoa butter. Smooth balm on lips and use daily for best results.

For the massage addict:
Try Proofly warming CBD Massage oil. This non-greasy and quick absorbing massage oil which is infused with CBD and a small amount of THC also consists of Vitamin E, Arnica oil, Canola oil, Jojoba oil, and Almond oil to provide excellent glide during application. The Black pepper essential oil used in the formula provides a warming and comfortable sensation on the skin. For topical use only.

This all-natural face mask with a light rosey scent contains CBD and high-quality kaolin clay designed to deep cleanse and remove impurities from skin pores and absorb excess oil without drying skin.

For the person you’re banging:
Try Water-based unisex lubricant, by Proofly. This non-greasy and non-staining water-based personal lubricant contains CBD, and a small amount of THC and can be easily removed by rinsing. It is latex condom compatible and does not contain gluten, dyes, alcohol, parabens, fragrances, phthalates, and Glycerin. For topical use only. THC 6.25mg, CBD 125.00 mg.
Lube is special among topicals, because unlike the others, it is capable of causing euphoric effects if it is THC-based. This method of consumption can be compared to dosing with a sublingual tincture. It could be a lot of fun to try out with that special someone!
