U.K. residents can expect to have a chiller, greener Christmas this year — thanks to cannabis.
Just in time for the holidays, Firebox has released a new Christmas pudding. Instead of being spiked with the standard cooking sherry, this particular confection is infused with cannabis terpenes and CBD.
“Unlike sparking up a spliff at the dinner table, even the most conservative relatives won’t object to you getting a hit of the calming green stuff via this delicious handmade pudding,” Firebox promises.
Unlike sparking up that spliff at the dinner table, however, this dessert doesn’t promise to get you high enough to tolerate your in-laws. That said, it might just get everyone relaxed enough to keep the peace and make it to the next holiday get-together.
The pudding is perfectly legal in the U.K., so unlike a cake full of crushed-up Klonopin, this dessert will maintain familial harmony while keeping everyone on the right side of the law. It’s also suitable for vegetarians.
Retailing at a fairly affordable £9.99 (roughly $17), this “most festive way to get a hit of the glorious green” may be preferable to scandalizing your extended family with a fatty (unless ruffling feathers is your personal holiday tradition, or they are cool with it and may want to join in).
“Have one of these babies tucked away in the cupboard and you’ll be able to diffuse any Christmas emergency,” the makers promise.
“Extra guest? There’s plenty of pudding to go round! Big row kicking off? CBD to the rescue. Feeling frazzled? Stressed is desserts spelled backwards, bring out the pudding.”
As drugs and desserts are two classic coping mechanisms for surviving the holidays, perhaps a CBD pudding makes sense for bringing the holiday cheer. However, if your family is a real handful, you might want to stash some personal hashcakes in your stocking — just in case.
