Keeping Spring Green: Your Cannabis Guide to 420, St. Patrick’s Day and Easter

Springtime is approaching and plants are flourishing all around us including the cannabis plant. Partaking in the plant offers users a way to relax and have even more fun at celebrations. With our guide, you will find that incorporating cannabis into upcoming holidays is rather simple.

Celebrating 420

How did 420 come to be associated with marijuana? The most credible story goes back to 1971, when five students at San Rafael High School in Marin County, California would meet outside campus at 4:20 p.m. to smoke. The group chose this time because extracurriculars were usually over by then. In later years, one of the boys got work as a roadie with the band Grateful Dead. In December 1990, a group of Deadheads handed out flyers to smoke “420” on April 20th at 4:20 p.m. The High Times magazine printed the flyer in 1991 and soon the number became code for partaking in marijuana worldwide.

There are a variety of options for those interested in celebrating 420. You could host or attend a cannabis-themed party, go to a weed festival, or even take a cannabis cooking class. Other options include enhancing everyday activities, such as yoga and art, by enjoying weed beforehand. If you prefer to stay at home this 420, we recommend kicking back and relaxing with our Strawberry Gummy 100mg Pack. Fruity and fun to eat, these gummies are sure to help you unwind for a relaxing night in. (Note that this dose is better for more experienced cannabis users. If you’re new to edibles, we recommend starting with a small dose of 5 mg or less.)

St. Patrick’s Day with a Cannabis Twist

This emerald-colored holiday is all about getting together with friends, so it makes sense for a different kind of green to make it into the festivities. In fact, according to the BDSA’s Retail Sales Tracking, St. Patrick’s Day is the fourth largest holiday for cannabis sales, following closely behind 4/20, Green Wednesday, and Black Friday. Furthermore, half of all cannabis consumers now integrate marijuana into their festive routines with a significant 41 percent partaking during social outings and celebrations. Shake, trim, and lite products were popular last year with a 7.5 percent increase in sales during the week of St. Patrick’s Day. Disposable vapes were also popular with a 2.6 percent increase.

If you plan on going out to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day, we recommend our Blue Dream All-In-One disposable vape. This hybrid strain provides a calm euphoria that makes it perfect for social outings. Remember to stay close to people you trust and always have a backup plan if the high is overwhelming.

Elevated Easter Celebrations

Easter is another holiday coming soon and it pairs better with cannabis than you might think. Impress your friends with cannabis-infused desserts. Although weed brownies are a classic, you may also experiment with other treats like cookies, caramel apples, and lemon bars. The unique combination of cannabis and chocolate makes eating normal Easter candy fun as well. Just remember to let your guests know which treats are cannabis-infused and which aren’t. Always be mindful of how much you are ingesting, regardless of consumption method. Finally, we recommend avoiding weed at Easter if there are any guests attending the celebration who are under 21 years of age.

Adding a healthy dose of cannabis to your holiday will make the festivities more fun and relaxing. You have several options at your disposal from hosting cannabis-themed parties on 420 to vaping with some friends on St. Patrick’s Day and finally enjoying delectable cannabis-infused desserts on Easter. However, you may be wondering where you can stock up on cannabis. Look no further than Happy Days Dispensary. We provide everything you need to have the best experience possible.
