Leafly Holiday Gift Guide 2022: Arizona

These are the greenest gifts from the Grand Canyon State.

The two-year-old Arizona recreational cannabis market has really grown. The status switched from medical to adult use in January 2021 and now has more than 120 stores serving customers and patients.

Giving weed can be a great gift for grown-ups, a last-minute gift for a dinner party host, or a delicious reward for teacher friends after that first semester. It’s also a great opportunity to rack up brownie points with the father-in-law.

Check out these award-winning cannabis and best-selling brands of flowers, vaporizers, concentrates, and edibles to complete your shopping list or put some gifts under your own tree.


Arizona smokers get as many big-name brands as any major state, including Cookies, which sells its Georgia Pie in Phoenix and beyond. It’s the perfect treat for GSC lovers who want to add a little more stone fruit and berries to their palate of dessert variety.

Have a smoke with your cousins ​​before the big dinner to work up an appetite. Or go to the Pie afterwards to find room for dessert. Showing up with Georgia Pie shows you care, and her Gelatti and Kush Mints lineage is evidence of contemporary Cookies flavors branching from California across the US and beyond.


A sponsored tip

While others may add orange slices to their cider, we suggest adding Vital’s Blood Orange Gummies to your cart. Sweet and floral with a subtly tangy finish, these gummies are better than any box of candy you receive during the season.

Plus, the 1:1 hybrid CBD to THC ratio makes her a great choice for relaxing on vacation. Enjoy the relaxing vibes while gathering with friends and family.

Find these gummies at Zen Leaf dispensaries on sale for just $11 (all flavors, regular price: $16-18) through December 25, 2022.

(Khalifa Kush/Leafy)

Rapper Wiz Khalifa re-released his namesake strain, Khalifa Kush, a premium OG Kush pheno, for adult-use markets in 2022, and Arizona is one of the states where you can find KK on tap for the holidays. It’s grown by the Tryke Companies in Arizona and has that classic piney fizzy lemon flavor of OG Kush.

This versatile hybrid effect works to wake up on the weekend and bake through the night. Stuff stockings with pre-rolled Khalifa Kush hemp blunts, or reach for the brand’s diamond dough rolls.

(Dime/Leafly Industries)

Arizona vape cart brand Dime Industries swept the 2022 Errl Cup in vape pens, and Wedding Cake is pretty much the most popular variety in America right now. So Dime’s Wedding Cake disposable hybrid vape cart is a good bet for your boo over the Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays.

Disposable vaporizers don’t get any easier to use than this. Simply unwrap and sip from the mouthpiece for a fresh, powerful and sweet vapor with a hint of vanilla. Wedding Cake is a versatile hybrid that will lift your mood and help ease tension.

This disposable is also refillable, just in case you forget it in the glove box for a few months.

(Item 9/Leafy)

Where are my dabbers? After the kids and grandparents go to bed, unpack the Puffco Peak and enjoy this vacation. Arizona’s Item 9 Laboratories continues to win trophies for their trendy extracts.

We would start with Z3, a son of the leading strain Zkittlez. Z3 should emit thick waves of tropical fruity terpenes and produce a deep THC rush that will get your body rocking. Item 9 has won 30 awards in the last five years, and that’s probably because these crumble-like extracts are super versatile.

You can rub them, sprinkle them in a joint, or put them on top of a bowl of flowers in a pipe, bong, or bubbler.

(Alien Labs/Leafy)

Do you have a funny uncle? You’ll be delighted that one of the world’s most popular cannabis brands is bringing its unique gummies to Arizona this Thanksgiving. Alien Labs Galactic Gummies have a cool alien-shaped mold and rocky, sugary little “flavor asteroids” embedded in them. Each gummy has 10mg of THC with 10 pieces in a bag.

Start with half an alien head and wait 90 minutes before continuing. They come in Cosmic Cherry, Bluto, Melonade, and Atomic Apple.

Alien Labs gummies also use marijuana extract from ice water filtration (aka hashish) instead of solvent extraction (distillate). The result is a less synthetic and more nuanced edible high.

Show your brother you care with the gift of snacks. Sublime has lollipops, caramel chews, and Southwestern pretzels, yes, but let’s get weird (and savory) with the chili lime popcorn. It’s chili-lime popcorn and Sublime’s cousin Champagne.

You won’t notice any grass flavor, especially in the middle of the strong chili and lime flavors. Each sachet contains 100mg of THC, so sprinkle some walnuts into a regular bowl to avoid overindulging.
