Interested in throwing a bash, a shindig of weed party like proportions?

The cannabis paradigm is changing right SMACK in front of our eyes, and with it, once cannabis skeptics are now becoming public indulgers – oh how liberating it is!

So in other words, there’s never been a better time to gather your friends, your family, your relationships that need mending, all for a weed party like no other!

YESSS!

But wait a second, a weed party isn’t like another dinner at your Grandmas, as delightful as that might be. Instead, you’ll need to plan, you’ll need to have the right stuff and more!

If you’re unsure of where to start, here are the absolute most bare essentials for throwing a weed party that’s bound to go down in history.

 

4 Tips on Throwing a Weed Party

Okay, throwing a great 420 party really depends on the interests and preferences of those you’re inviting, so make sure you keep this in mind. This aside, however, here’s 4 fundamental tips to start with!

1. Keep the Weed Jar Full

Sounds redundant, but what kind of 420 friendly party would it be without a myriad of different cannabis strains?

Yes, put that ounce of low grade, oregano looking pot to the side, because by providing a bar selection’s worth of green, you’ll not only impress your friends, acquaintances and soon-to-besties with your cannabis IQ, but you’ll also satisfy those who have different preference and tolerance levels.

You can start by selecting 4 or 5 different strains intended for different experiences. A heavy indica is great for those looking to really drift off and who have high tolerance levels, as well as some hybrid and sativas like Blue Dream and Green Crack for the more light hearted folks. Doing this will also prevent those who may be adverse to sativa‘s, or indicas, as the latter usually puts ALOT of those straight to bed. 

Don’t just stop at dry flower, though, as marijuana edibles can also be a great idea. With our recipe of how to make cannabutter, you’ll have the most unique edibles to snack on, if getting your hands dirty in the kitchen is your thing. Just make sure you dose them on the lower end, otherwise, you might have a room full of people melting to the wall!

Also, don’t forget to include some dry herb vaporizer pens, tinctures and some extracts to really spruce things up. Everybody’s got different tastes, and having a little something, something for everyone really lifts the party’s mood. Without a doubt.

2. Munchies… Munchies….Munchies

It’s easy to order some pizza and call it a day, but where’s the fun in that?

A good weed party should always have the fridge full of beverages and food to make sure an Egyptian Pharaoh is satisfied. Well, ideally, as this of course is easier said than done, and frankly, costly.

The first and likely best option to save any headache and hard-earned shekels, is to throw a ‘bring your own munchies’ weed party, which can also allow everyone to creatively contribute. If you do happen to be a Michelin star chef and want to flex your wine and dine muscles, then knock yourself out!

Alternatively, if a ‘bring your own munchies’ weed party isn’t your style, then it’s probably best you setup the event as if it were one. To do this, you can set the food table with a wide array of snacks such as mini sliders, sushi, pasta, tacos, and of course, vegetables. Yes, vegetables. 

Regardless, just make sure there’s enough food to feed double the amount! Because we all know what happens to the fridge and pantry after the 4th or 5th joint. 

 

3. Smoking Essentials

We’ll keep this one short and sweet – to keep the party rolling, make sure you’re stocked with enough cannabis accessories! The last thing you need is to run out papers, while having to pass around 1 bong among 20 different people.

Think of a never-ending series of puff, puff, pass interactions. Lively, isn’t it? 😉

To avoid a robotic mess of cloud-nine flyers, make sure you have a variety of pipes, bongs and vaporizers to keep the weed party cruising. Easier said than done, we know, as not everyone has the glass collection of cheech or chong.

Heck, i don’t think even cheech or chong have it.

As an alternative, ask friends to contribute a few pieces to the weed party. You can also check out your local dispensaries and headshops for smaller pipes and bubbles that cost roughly $10.

 

4. Set the Vibe

Probably the most crucial aspect, behind your friends and the cannabis of course, is setting the right atmosphere, because doing so has the potential to transform any party from a dud to stud. No joke.

For setting the vibe and mood, you’d want to keep the music flowing by creating playlists that range from all different genres. Well, as much as you can bear.

Bob Marley and Willy Nelson are a great place to start! But don’t make the 420 party a documentary about their careers. Try mixing things up with indie bands and light-hearted acoustics. Try funk-if-ying the vibe by inviting Mr. Coltrane to the function. Try hair-raising heavy metal.

Whatever you choose, just make sure it’s more on the light end and fits well in the background, allowing others to really engage and conversate.

Make sure to also include plenty of comfortable seating, meaning bean bag chairs, pillows, hammocks and anything that’s just insanely pleasant to sit on. Picture trying to have conversations while having to sit on a children’s stool or the floor? Not good. 

Last but not least, make sure your friends are somewhat compatible. Obvious, yet essential, as good people vibrations are key for any function, weed party or not. This also means, you’d have stay strong and hold the fort down, ensuring sour patch kids, who shake the mood and throw everything off, are directed right to the door. 

This way sir! Only positive vibrations here mon.
