For any resident of Canada, you’re probably well aware that you can now safely purchase, possess, and use cannabis without any worries of illegality. While there are still some rules regarding Cannabis consumption in Canada, it is largely a safe activity that anyone should partake in. With the upcoming holiday of Canada Day, we’ve come up with a few ways you can celebrate with the green leaf and ditch the liquor and booze in the process! If you do choose to mix Cannabis and Alcohol – just be safe and know your limits.
One thing that’s cropping up in social circles is the mocktail. Typically, these are made with similar non-alcoholic ingredients to mimic real life cocktails. There’s a growing culture however, of substituting the alcohol of these mocktails with THC tinctures to encourage a fun, party atmosphere without the adverse effects of alcohol. Consider serving these at your get together instead of a case of beer, and you’ll see the mood of your party goers change for the better! Have a look at our own mocktail recipes or mix up your own! The possibilities are endless!
Edibles are a great way for people to experience Cannabis intoxication without the harmful effects of smoking the plant itself. Cut down on nasty things like tar and create delicious Cannabis infused snacks for your party instead. Just be mindful of the dosage, as ingested Cannabis can last upwards of eight hours and can sometimes prove a bit intense for those who haven’t consumed it before.
We have a whole range of edibles the kick off your next party. Everything from easy to dose Ms. Green Cannabis Chocolate bars, All kinds of Candy Edibles, as well as Phoenix tears and Distillate to make everything an edible!
Dimebags for Giftbags!
Dimebags are a common nickname for a gram of weed. They used to cost around $10 in the prohibition era, and they can also be a great party gift to your guests to get things started. Considering picking up a bunch of Cannabis and breaking it up into smaller quantities for your guests. It’ll go a long way to helping them
comfortable for a night of Canada Day partying! Right now Walter’s cheap 50’s are on sale for $280. Your Dime bags will be closer to nickel bags in cost – but we won’t tell anyone. We’ve also got a wide selection of flower for your smoking and gifting pleasure!
Cannabis Concentrates for Concentrated Fun!
While creating Cannabis concentrates can be a long, difficult, and scientific process; there are ways you and your friends would be able to do it from home as well. There’s many methods online for creating homemade hash or kief based concentrates. We’ve also got a delicious selection of extracts such as shatter or budder, and several varieties of Hash. These potentiate the affects of the Cannabis, meaning it lasts longer and hits harder. Again, be sure to pay attention to dosage for new comers to the party, and don’t forget about the entourage effect!. Either way, adding some concentrates into the mix will definitely make for a memorable Canada Day!
Giving the Gift of All You Can Eat
If you can’t afford to provide your guests with Cannabis, one thing you could do is cook! Encourage the party as a BYOB / BYOC event, letting them know you’ll have food and munchies in advance. Make a few different, but varied and unique recipes for your munchie seeking friends; and your party is sure to go off without a hitch!
Keep Substances Separate, Keep Safe
While it might sound appealing to both you and your guests to mix things like alcohol and Cannabis, this can be dangerous and often doesn’t end well. The possible negative interactions include anxiety, bouts of depression, nausea and vomiting, increased intoxication, and other unfortunate health problems. It’s recommended that Cannabis users do not consume alcohol at the same time to avoid this issues. More over, its recommended for new Cannabis users to ‘start low, go slow.’ Pacing yourself is a great way to avoid Cannabis induced panic or anxiety, and will make the party a much mellower time for everyone involved, yourself included! If you DO end up consuming both – just be forewarned that it can be fun, but it can cause an abrupt end to your night if you have too much of one or the other. If you’re hosting it’s best to keep your wits about you.
Whichever way you and those closest to you decide to celebrate Canada Day, always keep things such as harm reduction practices in mind. We all love a bit of a bit of partying and celebration when its called for, just making sure you and your guests are safe will make your get together memorable for all the right reasons instead of the wrong ones.
