Just because we had a sudden burst of sunny days doesn’t mean the woolen sweaters and wellies have to be put away until fall. We’ve got a whole month of April showers to get through before we can start frolicking in those much-awaited May flowers, so might as well indulge in some wholesome indoor recreation in the meantime.

During those drizzly days, find solace in a colorful and creative canna meditation. That’s right, all of you. I’m talking about the treasured pastime enjoyed by generations of smokers: coloring books. It’s an activity that can help you relax, relieve stress, and maybe even keep your hands occupied for a few hours so you’re not tempted to scroll.

The following selections are available for purchase at local stores or online, and we’ve even suggested cannabis products that pair perfectly with each book. Once you’ve worked on the pages, you can end up with wall-worthy artwork.

Wiz Khalifa’s Weed Farm Coloring Book
