420 Gift Guide: The Best 4/20 Gifts for Any Stoner
Published on Apr 8, 2021
420 is one of our favorite holidays of the year. At its best, it's a celebration of marijuana and cannabis culture that we get to enjoy with friends and family. There is so much to celebrate these days surrounding cannabis, including the ongoing legalization, new social equity programs and awareness bringing diversity to the industry and better marijuana becoming available on the legal market every day. With so much to celebrate, 420 presents an excellent opportunity to gift some special cannabis joy. Here's a list of our top 7 cannabis gifts to give (and receive!) for 420 and some brief history behind the holiday, including the 420 meaning and where it all began.
A Brief History of 420
Many people celebrate this special holiday every year enthusiastically, but what does 420 mean? Where did 420 come from? Well, the answer is a lot simpler than you may think. The origin of 420 is set in the early 1970s in San Rafael, California. Five athletes who attended San Rafael High School in 1971 got wind of a rumor that a small cannabis crop was hidden in a nearby forest. Every day at 4:20 PM, after their respective sports practices, this group of teens (known as the "Waldos") would meet to search the Point Reyes Forest for the elusive stash. While the Waldos never did find the crop, their use of 4:20 as a code for getting high has had a much larger impact than they could have ever known. The group of teens happened to have several ties to the Grateful Dead, who picked up on the group's 4:20 term. Eventually, this led to the diaspora of the phrase across the world making 420 now synonymous with marijuana. Since the phrase first blew up, festivals, concerts, public gathers and tons of independent celebrations have helped cement 4/20 as the ultimate cannabis holiday we know today.

420 may not be the most discreet holiday, but it's always nice to have somewhere to put your stash so that it's hidden away and doesn't make everything smell like weed.

This case is also waterproof and comes in three different sizes.
Stashlogix also has a game-changing home storage device called a Digital SmartJar. This jar's lid keeps your bud fresh and your home from not smelling like weed, but it also doubles as a digital humidity and temperature gauge.
