This has been a hard year for everyone – and for those of you who still have incomes, we urge you to ditch big business to support small businesses this holiday season. Jeff Bezos has enough of our money, corporate cannabis will survive on venture funds, but the small-batch-grown CBD farm is just barely scraping by. By supporting small businesses you are saving people’s DREAMS!
We wanted to help make shopping small easy. If you are considering Cannabis, CBD, or Plant Medicine related gifts this season, then this is your guide! Businesses did not pay to get on this guide, they didn’t have to send us free products, there was no compensation provided whatsoever to our team.
We are always on the lookout for small businesses in the cannabis space and it has taken a long time to find some of these. Small businesses get beat out for Google Ad words. They can’t pay for instagram followers. It can be hard to get discovered as a small biz or artisan. So this list is our gift to you and to small canna-businesses, and it may be one of the only lists out there that isn’t paid for.

For Your Artsy Fartsy Friend
Small Biz: Wandering Bud
Products: Handmade Ceramic Pipes and Accessories
Our Fave: Moon Pipes
We cannot get over the cuteness of Wandering Bud’s handmade ceramic pipes, ashtrays, bubblers, and one-hitters. They are often made with shiny gold luster and stylish color tones and formed into unique shapes, like lemon wedges or succulent plants! Not only do they look cute, but they hit smooth and clean the same way that glass does.
Small Biz: Stargazer Ceramics
Products: Handmade Mugs and Tumblers
Our Fave: Cannabis Leaf Print Small Cup
There is nothing as cozy as drinking a warm beverage out of a handmade ceramic mug. Stargazer ceramics makes gorgeous mugs with cannabis leaf motifs on them and we are absolutely in love. Throw a little sativa tincture in there in the morning or a little CBD at night with your sleepytime tea! You will forever feel warm inside knowing you supported a small female artist as well.
Crystal Loving Witchy-Hippie-Stoner Friend
Small Biz: Rust and Gold
Products: Art and Crystal Pipes
Our Fave: Lapis Lazuli Healing Wand
This small artist creates witchy nature artworks and even a “Cannabis Collection” – a collection of original artworks to honor plant medicine. To go along with her works she also sells crystal healing pipes that are absolutely stunning. Perfect for your witchy friend – but also just perfect for anyone who loves smoking out of beautiful pieces! Did I mention that her site is ALL pay-what-you-can?
Small Biz: Sugar Rose Studio
Our Fave: Cannabis Hoop Earrings
Can you ever have enough jewelry? If the answer to that is no for you or for your stylish stoner friends then you have to check out Sugar Rose Studios. From subtle cannabis leaf necklaces to full on weed leaf hoops they have the cutest selection of jewels to choose from!
Small Biz: Vital Leaf
Products: Artisan Chocolates and Tinctures
Our Fave: Roasted Hazelnut and Sea Salt Bar
We have been obsessed with Vital Leaf Chocolates for years now! This chocolate is not just a fun way to get your CBD fix, this chocolate is a culinary delight. Founded by Artisan Chef Christina Sasser (yay for woman owned!) a badass babe who cares deeply about organic, fair-trade, regenerative, and ethically sourced ingredients.
Immunity For All
Small Biz: Carpenter Botanicals
Products: CBD/Hemp Smokeables, Tinctures, Salves
Our Fave: Hemp Infused Fire Cider
With COVID cases on the rise and flu season upon us it is safe to say we all need a little immunity boost. We can’t get enough of Carpenter Botanicals Hemp Infused Fire Cider, a shot of this power-packed elixir and you will feel superhuman! Plus Female Founder Carly Carpenter grows all her own organic hemp and other ingredients, and what she can’t grow she sources locally and organically. Made in small, magical batches, you NEED this fire cider in your immunity toolbox.
Small Biz: Rust and Gold Art
Products: Original Art and Prints
Our Fave: The Cannabis Collection
Rust and Gold creates art for the unique soul that draws inspiration from nature and symmetry. Plants, woodland creatures, the moon, the cosmos, and mandalas are common themes in her work that effortlessly moves between watercolor, cyanotype, and mixed media using gold leaf. This artist and soon-to-be CannaMom created a Cannabis collection of 15 pieces using real cannabis leaves to help destigmatize and honor plant medicine. They are affordable and beautiful pieces for any home decor or dispensary!
Small Biz: The Naked Hemp
Products: Hemp Skincare
Our Fave: CBD Repair and Anti-Aging Cream
After meeting the founder of the Naked Hemp and trying some of her products we have not gone back! Their clean hemp derived skincare line is the perfect gift for someone who loves to pamper. I remember when I got to a certain age and anti-aging creams were WAY more exciting than other gifts – now add the power of cannabis and you have a winner.
The Fancy Stoner
Small Biz: Stonedwear
Products: Ceramic Pipes
Our Fave: 22K Gold Geo Pipe
Beware – you will need to buy one for yourself AND one for your bestie because Stonedwear’s unique geometric style pipes are just that cute. Get one with color that pops or something simpler, there is a shape and color combo for anyone. If you have a friend that already seems to have every pipe you could find – surprise them with the unique pipes by Stonedwear.

The Unique Pipe Collector
Small Biz: Mostly Earth Ceramics
Products: Ceramic Pipes
Our Fave: Ceramic Mushroom Pipe
This small artist lost her job during COVID and found it to be a blessing in disguise as she was able to start diving deeper into her passion for ceramics. These earthy pipe combine mushrooms, cacti, and other nature themes to create stunning and unique pipes!
