Unlike last year, where many of us were lost in the midst of covid-19 and dealing with the effects of uncertainty and what’s to come, the great 4/20/2020 celebration that many looked forward too were sadly tossed aside as the world dealt with a global pandemic.
Fast forward one year later, people are beyond excited to make up for last year and continue moving into the spring season with a bit more joy in their lives and we want to add to your excitement and share this list of brands and products we personally enjoy and think you will too! Happy 420 everyone!
Caramel Crunch InfusedPre-Roll by Stone Road
Founded by Lex Corwin at the age of 23, Stone Road is a proudly queer-run company that is blazing a path for a new age of cannabis consumers with their eye-catching, colorful and inclusive campaign imagery and top quality cannabis products.
All of Stone Road’s premium, sun-grown, organic flower is sourced from their 57 acre, off-grid family-run farm using only solar powered and water sourced from an aquifer directly under the farm in Nevada City, CA, ensuring each joint is potent, pure and hand-rolled with love.
On a mission to be “a better bud for the people and the planet”, all Stone Road packaging is 99% recyclable and made from 100% post-consumer recycled goods.
We’ve tried several of Stone Road’s line up but for this 420, we want to highlight their Caramel Crunch Infused pre-roll – great for those wanting the optimal healing of full plant medicine. An initial buzz is accompanied by gentle, cerebral euphoria, enhanced focus, improved creativity, and higher sociability. Infused with Italian hash for an added cerebral effect.
A new 2021 initiative will take the design even further when they start utilizing rice protein isolate to create the shrink wrap material around the pre-roll packs, and revolutionize their flower jars, sourcing fully recycled glass jars and reclaimed ocean plastic to make the child-resistant lids.
Organic Hemp Wick by Summerland
Many of our tolerance levels have increased within the last year due to being locked indoors 24/7 and consuming cannabis like never before. Using lighters directly adds butane into your joint or bowl when you ignite and inhale and that takes a toll on our body and lungs over time, leaving us with more harmful lighter gases and chemicals than we might think.
That’s where Summerland’s Hemp Wick comes in. Lighting with a hemp wick will give the consumer more efficient, flavorful hits, all while preventing inhalation of harmful butane lighter fluids and sulfurous match chemicals.
Summerland’s hemp wick is made from organic hemp and natural beeswax and available for purchase in a 200-foot roll, or in a 3-pack of portable booklets, each containing 4.20 feet of wick.
Budsy by Puffco
Known for their devices for concentrates consumption, Puffco has now dove into the flower sector with the introduction of Budsy, their first product intended for flower. The team took a traditional water bottle and added their twist to create a water pipe. The pipe is of BPA Free Tritan construction and contains a ceramic bowl with a silicone tab for safe handling and a hidden bowl storage to keep packed and stay ready and a percolated water filtration. When discretion is needed most, Budsy is hidden in plain sight making a perfect companion for any adventure.
Refined Live Resin Diamonds byRaw Garden
Raw Garden is dropping prices on all of their products. The brand knows it’s been a tough year for everyone and with a sense of optimism in the air, Raw Garden wants to celebrate those who helped make cannabis an essential business. The price decreases will go into effect April 1 and stay in effect permanently.
CEO and Co-founder of Raw Garden John De Friel said, “As farmers, scientists and cannabis activists, one of our core values is ‘Cannabis for All.’ We’re pleased to update our 2021 pricing as an expression of gratitude and appreciation for the people at the heart of our business.”
It’s all the same high quality, Clean Green Certified Cannabis that made Raw Garden a California favorite. And in the brand’s usual fashion, the flavor team will continue to turn out new strains every week (their Baskin Robbins approach).
Made from their cannabis flower using entirely organically-based and Clean Green-certified farming techniques. Raw Garden cryogenically flash-freezes the flower at harvest in order to preserve the plant’s unique cannabinoid and terpene profiles. Raw Garden Refined Live Resin Diamonds contain varietal-specific terpenes and THCa crystallines for a fantastic dabbing experience.
The brand’s popular Refined Live Resin Diamonds will see the biggest drop in price from $50 to $45.
Infused Social Tonic by Cann
Cann is a California-crafted social tonic subtly infused with a blend of THC and CBD. This light and refreshing beverage is the ideal option for those easing their way into edibles, or cannabis in general, and wish to achieve a light buzz. Created to be uplifting but still easygoing, Cann’s products are thoughtfully micro-dosed with 2mg of THC and 4mg of CBD.
Cann’s three aromatic flavors — Lemon Lavender, Grapefruit Rosemary and Blood Orange Cardamom — will have you salivating at the mouth. Plus, our cannabis loving celiac friends can rejoice too since Cann tonics are wonderfully gluten-free. Not to mention, these bad boys are available in six-packs and 24-packs, perfect for post-covid shenanigans.
The company’s website even provides a “canncierge” service for those seeking more information on the products and where to find them, including access to exclusive promos.
Pink Picasso by Wonderbrett
With one of the largest cannabis cultivations in North America, Wonderbrett produces all its frosty buds from its facility in Long Beach, CA. Pretty fitting for Snoop Dogg’s hometown, wouldn’t you say?
Founded over two decades ago by legendary growers Brett Feldman and Cameron Damwijk, Wonderbrett has become synonymous with top-quality cannabis. Their extensive list of genetics includes a wide variety of all-star strains like Pink Picasso, Grapes of Wrath, Black Orchid and Pineapple OG. Regardless of which strain you actually get your hands on, you can expect potent effects and intoxicatingly complex terpene profiles of elite genetics.
Luckily for Angelenos, allocating these incredible hybrids will become a whole lot easier when the company opens its own flagship store in Los Angeles later this year. Known for its artistic and beautiful packaging, we’re excited to see what Wonderbrett creates with its brick-and-mortar establishment.
Blended Pre-Rolls by Drew Martin
Needless to say a year in lockdown has us all dreaming of new adventures for 2021. In the case of boutique pre-roll company Drew Martin, these adventures happen to be of the botanical kind.
Expertly curated using sun grown cannabis from a queer-female-owned farm in the hills of Mendocino County, Drew Martin pre-rolls are made using a variety of botanicals and whole bud sativa-dominant hybrid strains. These herbaceous blends create a sensory experience filled with robust notes and exotic flavors, including Lavender & Passionflower and Rose Petal & Peppermint.
The terpenes from both the cannabis and the herbs create a low-anxiety high that can easily take you from day to night. And thanks to their gorgeous packaging, you’ll want to show off each stunning Drew Martin product you try. Each package of pre-rolls contains four individual joints for a total of 2.6g overall.
THC:CBD Patches by Papa & Barkley
Papa & Barkley is one of those cannabis companies that’s quickly becoming a legacy brand. The company has already seen countless 4/20 lists and will probably see countless more. That’s because Papa & Barkley’s infused cannabis topicals, capsules and tinctures are truly worth the hype.
Specifically making our 4/20 list this year is Papa & Barkley’s near-miraculous transdermal Releaf patches. Handcrafted with fresh-pressed cannabis rosin to maintain the whole plant profile with the full spectrum of cannabinoids, terpenes and phytonutrients, each patch offers up to 12 hours of whole-body comfort. These slow-release patches are chemical-free and great for alleviating minor aches and acute bodily pain.
Papa & Barkley’s Releaf patches are available in several ratios:
Wax Infused Pre-Rolls by High 90’s
Brace yourself! High 90’s are the pre-rolls you need when you need that extra-supercharged joint in your life! Each pre-rolls has 1200mg of infused wax with indoor grown hybrid flower reaching between 30-40% THC… let that dwell in your brain for a second as you begin to salivate!
The SoCal brand delivers 8 tasteful flavors. Their flavors come from a blend of natural terpenes, creating a healthier alternative to regular blunt wraps for its patients.
Recently the High 90’s announced its move into the vaping space, with an upcoming line of flavored vapes with 80-90% THC concentrate in every vape.
Both pre-rolls and the upcoming vapes come in eight flavor varieties:
In addition to making some powerful joints, High 90’s also makes some of the most comfortable merch we’ve seen in the industry – cozy graphic tee’s and cotton shorts perfect for rolling in!
Liquid Cannabis Vials by ALT
ALT (Advanced Liquid Technology) is a great product for those new to cannabis or for those looking to replace alcohol with a low-dose, low-calorie cannabis product. ALT allows users to choose their dose & works with any drink of your choice. Because ALT is water-soluble, it is absorbed through the salivary glands and kicks in as little as 10 minutes, so it’s easy to take a few milligrams now and later without having to wait an hour in between like with edibles. Because of the high bioavailability of ALT (meaning it’s absorbed most effectively by the body), users can expect a unique, light, uplifting high with hybrid-like mind and body effects. ALT is available in 5mg and 10mg single vials and 5-packs.
Delta 8 THC Gummies by Goodekind
Delta 8 THC is the latest talking point in cannabis circles as the industry welcomes this cannabinoid onto the scene and research continues. Delta 8 THC is a naturally occurring cannabinoid in cannabis which can be derived completely from hemp. It is very similar to the more commonly known Delta 9 THC. Delta 8 THC provides a mild and relaxing high without the anxiousness sometimes experienced with Delta 9 THC. Due to the 2018 Farm Bill, Delta 8 THC is legal in 39 states, making it a great choice for those that prefer a different kind of high.
Designed for health-conscious consumers, Goodekind’s Delta 8 THC gummies ingredients include organic cane sugar, organic tapioca syrup and organic flavored concentrates.
Goodekind gummies come in four flavors: Watermelon Thump, Blind Lemon, Blazed Berries and Peach Pie. Each gummy consists of 20 mg Delta 8 THC, with a total of 200 mg or 600 mg Delta 8 THC per container, making it easy for consumers to control their dose.
Watermelon Sorbet by Ember Valley
Ember Valley is a craft cannabis company based in Shasta Valley, CA. Their giant indoor cultivation facility is home to numerous phenotypes, one more enticing than the last. Some of our favorite strains by Ember Valley include Watermelon Sorbet, Rosé Runtz, Sundae Driver and Orange Peel. The facility’s terrace growing rooms are both a treat for the nose and the eyes, visually captivating its lucky visitors.
Watermelon Sorbet smokes as good as it sounds. The child of Watermelon Zkittles and Gelato #45, packing in over 30% THC with fruit notes and earthy undertones makes the list!
Ember Valley believes in upholding the cannabis community by merging its strong culture with “refined practices and unparalleled service standards”. Producing some of the finest cannabis products in Northern California, the company maintains a hefty roster of exotic strains used for its flower, pre-rolls, and concentrates. Ember Valley’s concentrates include badder, sugar and diamonds made from their homegrown bud.
220G by 22Red
Shavo Odadjan of System of A Down launched 22Red based off Shavo’s affinity for numerology and synesthesia, 22Red was created to pay homage to the number 22. Many major events in Shavo’s life revolve around the number 22 and it’s said this number possesses the energies of your biggest dreams.
The most powerful strain in the 22Red arsenal, 22OG is an indica-dominant strain made with the cannaseur in mind. An old strain with a new name, 22OG is derived from a ‘98 Kush OG plant that, like a fine wine, has become better (and more potent) over time. If you’re looking for a high that will help you completely de-stress and unwind after a long day at the office, look no further than 22OG.
Shavo will be visiting 3 stores in LA for 420 and going to be giving away the following with a purchase of any 22Red product:

Insane Churro Cookie by Dr. Greenthumb
B-Real’s Insane brand is collaborating with Big Pete for this 420 to introduce these 100mg indica churro cookies with 10mg per cookie. Infused with Fire Cut OG strain, it taste just like churros, with that hot buttery cinnamon-sprinkled goodness.
You catch that impossible to miss whiff of churros and weed and next thing you know you’re enjoying scratching the itch that only some doughy sweetness rolled in cane and brown sugar with a dash of cinnamon can reach.
B-Real will be making an appearance on 420 at the Dr. Greenthumb’s Sylmar and DTLA locations in celebration of the product’s launch! The Insane Churro Cookie can be purchased at any Dr. Greenthumb’s location.
