“It’s an honour just to be nominated,” has long been the consolation Oscar hopefuls have uttered when they fail to take home a little gold man. However, as recently reported in Forbes, there may be a little more to keep spirits high after being denied the award.

Turns out, those nominated in the five major Oscar categories — Best Actor, Best Actress, Best Supporting Actor, Best Supporting Actress and Best Director — all take home a gift bag full of some serious swag. While there are travel packages and even (Canadian) designer clothing in this year’s “Everyone is a Winner” gift bags, there are also a few cannabis-infused goodies that come along with it.

We may not have legal access to infused eats in Canada, but the state of California does allow for cannabis edibles to be sold. According to Forbes, the nominees will all receive a “Deluxe Coda Signature gift box featuring cannabis edibles, topicals and concentrates.”

Coda Signatures is a Colorado brand edibles company that makes gourmet cannabis edibles and other products. According to a contest on their webpage giving away the company’s Oscar collection, the gift bags include cannabis-infused truffles, chocolate bars and bath bombs.

Beauty & wellness products

Lovin’ yourself seems to be a running theme in the bag this year, as cannabis-infused beauty and wellness products have also made their way into the selection.

Skincare creams by High, a beauty company that uses cannabis seed extracts in their entire line, has made their way into the celebrity swag, though the company’s website says the seed extract is “free of psychoactive substances including resin, THC.”

There’s also a CBD-infused anti-ageing treatment by CBDRxSupreme included, according to Forbes.
