The legalization of marijuana in various countries has brought significant changes to the widely varying regions. Apart from boosting economies, the adult use of marijuana has given people the liberty to enjoy themselves in multiple ways. One of the popular trends lately is hosting a cannabis-themed party.
If throwing a cannabis-themed party is something you would like to do this coming December 31st, this article is definitely for you. Although hosting such a party seems easy at first, there are numerous things that you have to consider. Having a party can sometimes be stressful – make it cannabis-themed, and it becomes a whole different ball game.
The principal factor for hosting your party is determining the venue. It largely depends on the number of guests you are expecting and the type of decorations you plan to use. Since your party would be centered on cannabis, it is best to notify your guests beforehand. Thus, people who won’t be comfortable attending can opt out.
Additionally, it is vital to invite people with the same cannabis experience levels as you, or at least those who are interested in responsibly giving it a try. Essentially, cannaseurs are people versed with marijuana, meaning they consume it more often than other types of tokers. On the other hand, cannas-curious folks are pretty new to the cannabis culture and try it less often. If you’re planning to invite canna-curious, you might want to offer mild forms of marijuana so that no one gets “too high” and has a bad time.
A brilliant way to make your party an all-inclusive one is to be mindful of everyone’s needs. Although many prefer to use joints, some enjoy using water pipes or edibles. Hence, having variety would leave everyone satisfied. The one thing to consider, though, is that sharing those devices between numerous gusts can transmit colds, sicknesses, and, right now, COVID-19. It’s best to ensure everyone who attends is vaccinated, recently tested negative, and has their own piece or joint papers to inhale from throughout the party.
Another way to achieve variety is to think beyond marijuana. Music and games will ensure that your party isn’t just centered around smoking but the bonding and joy that can and should ensure post-toke. Remember, parties always aim at bringing people together. So, having activities that do so will make your guests mingle and enjoy the company of one another.
The type of food you serve is another significant consideration. These days, finding food ingredients and products that are cannabis-infused has become relatively easy. Since cannabis edibles have become very popular, low-dose cannabis sweets are more fitting for dessert. But in order to keep everyone satisfied and in their right minds, it’s best to provide an array of non-cannabis-infused foods that can help keep everyone full, happy, and lively. Remember: stoned people like flavorful, diverse snacks; don’t just pour a bowl of cheese puffs and call it a day (although… you really can’t go wrong by having those as a side option). This way, your guests can have more choice and liberty.
It’s quite typical for parties to have alcoholic drinks. However, you should avoid serving alcohol at your cannabis-themed party. The combination of alcohol and cannabis might not be the best thing to do for your New Year’s stoney soiree – the staying up late, the cannabis intoxication, and the holiday mindset don’t really need to be exaggerated by another intoxicating substance. Safety is paramount; always have that in mind. A good alternative is to have a variety of mocktails. Still, in case anyone gets too high at the party, there are plenty of ways you can offer help. A good example and handy trick to always keep in mind is to give them lemonade, which can calm a person who’s super baked.
Organizing a new year cannabis-themed party can be stressful, especially if it is your first time. However, following these helpful tips will go a long way in ensuring you have an enjoyable party as you and your friends cross over into the new year in high spirits (pun intended).
