The Ultimate 4/20 Gift Guide Smoking Accessories Edition
Published on 4/11/22
4/20 is approaching quickly, and there's no better time to buy yourself or a friend stoner gifts for the occasion. Need some inspiration for the best gifts for stoners this year? We've got you covered.
The Significance of 420
4/20 has taken popular culture by storm over the last decade, and the 420 meaning has been boiled down to one thing: time to get high. But there's a lot to 420, from being a rallying cry for cannabis enthusiasts to being a great story that goes back to the beginnings of cannabis culture in modern America. The origins of 420 date to 1971, at San Rafael High School in California. Five teens used to meet up after school at 4:20 PM to get high and look for a fabled abandoned crop nearby. These five teenagers called themselves the "Waldos" because they met and hung out by a wall every day to start their search. While they never found the stash, they used 420 as their codename for smoking weed - the kids had several close connections to the Grateful Dead and spent a lot of time backstage with the band.
The simple codename stuck and started to spread amongst Grateful Dead fans, quickly snowballing into the iconic phrase it is today. And while it has a great backstory, the truth of the matter is this: 420 - April 21 - is a great time to celebrate cannabis with friends by getting together and smoking a lot of weed. This leads us to why you might find yourself looking for gifts around this time of year. 420 is like cannabis Christmas and Thanksgiving wrapped into one - it's a time to celebrate, and giving yourself or someone you know a stoner accessory to try out on 4/20 is a great way to get started.
