Father’s Day 2020: Ganja Gifts for Dads Who Love the Dank
Welcome back to MERRY JANE’s Goods of the Month, a column where we highlight the staff’s favorite cutting-edge products, innovations, and updates in the world of weed. We smoke a lot of pot here — and we’re always itching to try the latest and greatest stuff that fits under the 420 umbrella.
This Sunday is Father’s Day (incase you forgot!), and we want show some love to dads who are down with the dank. First though, we want to emphasize something that troubles our staff: There are countless cannabis brands tailored to “marijuana moms” (sometimes glibly described as former “Chardonnay moms”), while there are noticeably less products that are explicitly marketed towards male-identifying parents.
We believe this is due to the pervasive misogyny that seeps into every facet of American culture, and how women are stigmatized for using cannabis in ways that men do not face. Therefore, companies believe they need to peddle their products to femme folks in specialized or nuanced ways — while every other product is apparently acceptible for men? It’s weird, right? Why do we need to market cannabis in particular ways to women, especially mothers? It often feels patronizing and belittling — as if cannabis consumption were entirely different acts for men and women.
Sure, there are male-targeted brands like Dad Grass, but the fact that such a company even exists speaks to how the cannabis landscape is still a gendered space with plenty of patriarchal baggage weighing it down. The idea that men consume cannabis — whether recreationally or medicinally — differently from femme-identifying people is flawed. Cannabis is for everyone, and it’s worth emphasizing that no two consumers will experience its wonders in the same way. To say that “dads will like this and moms will like that” is bullshit, and we do not want to perpetuate such a schism.
As such, the following products were chosen because they rule no matter who you are — whether a mom, a dad, or someone who has kids but doesn’t identify with any particular gender label. Enjoy, and may your parents enjoy the pleasures of pot without being pigeonholed!
Zig-Zag papers have a legacy. They’ve been around since the stone age! Just kidding. But, they have been around since 1879, making them the oldest rolling paper crew in the game. So, realistically, your ‘rents probably already know what Zig-Zags are.
What better gift to share this Father’s Day than a Zig-Zag OG Bundle, which contains a rolling tray, two different sized rolling machines, and papers. The name says it all, it’s designed, crafted, and pieced together with your pops in mind — the real OGs in your life! Nothing says I love you like the nostalgia that comes along with the Zig-Zag papers your pops started with.

A portion of the proceeds for every purchase goes towards freeing non-violent cannabis offenders form prison.

Unlike most air fresheners on the market, NSNT is not a masking agent.
