As longtime proponents of plant medicine, we are comforted by the ever-increasing awareness and popularization of its practice. From the widespread adoption of cannabis to breakthroughs in the legalization of marijuana and psilocybin and landmark research on the drug (yes, we realize that mushrooms are technically fungi, not plants), it’s clear that the opportunities for wellness, enlightenment, and fun will continue to grow. As a result, there are many new brands offering remedies, products, and tools — many of which also support legal and social justice reform. Our botanical medicine gift guide includes some of our favorites, chosen for their attention to design, their innovation platform, or simply their effectiveness. For all other types of current ideas, take a look at our full Buy section, which is updated daily.
