April 20, best known as 4/20, is an international celebration for the cannabis community to gather in large numbers.
Usually these gatherings or “smoke-outs” – take place outdoors, but now that we are in lockdown, people are finding creative ways to celebrate 4/20.
From solo outdoor activities to virtual get-togethers, here’s how this year’s weed celebration will look!
There is nothing like this beautiful spring weather to beckon you outdoors after a long winter being cooped up. A hike alone is not only good for the body, but also the soul in these stressful times. Add a little cannabis, and you have found a new way to celebrate the day!
Edibles do really well while hiking, and pink lemonade makes the stroll even more festive. Southwest Wellness has great deals on both.
If you’re wanting to get more creative then take a look at this article on the different Magic Butter machine benefits. You can use it to make cannabutter, weed candy, herb-infused oils, and even lotions.
For those of you running out of shows to watch on Netflix during the lockdown, this Monday, April 20, a new cannabis-themed show premieres.
Cooked with Cannabis is a cooking competition show where all the meals are prepared with weed, naturally. During the six-episode series, we’ll watch as professional chefs go head-to-head in a three-meal cook-off.
And there’s yet another treat in store online Luck Productions presents “Come And Toke It”-a new variety show and fourth installment of Luck’s ongoing live programming (following Til’ Further Notice, Hello Walls, and Prime Cuts). What better way to honor Willie Nelson’s favorite holiday, than to celebrate with him on April 20th at 4:20 PM CDT in the comfort of your own home! Hosted by the unofficial patron saint of weed himself, Willie Nelson, who will be joined by artists, chefs, comedians, and cannabis experts during the 4 hour and 20-minute live-streamed program.
The variety show will include performances by various musical guests, cooking and cocktail demos, and weed-centric moments. Stayed plugged-in to Luck Reunion social media channels, as the talent will be revealed on a rolling basis.
Luck and Willie’s Reserve are joining forces to launch the #comeandtokeit #passleft challenge, which is perhaps the world’s only chance to knock smoking with Willie Nelson off their bucket list. Whether you partake or not, this is your chance to live the dream. Luck will be asking fans to post a video of themselves passing (whatever toking material of their choice) to the left with the hashtags #ComeandTokeIt #PassLeft. One lucky participant will be randomly selected to talk to Willie himself, live on air, to pass left and wish him an early birthday “in person” during the broadcast.
And don’t forget to pick up flowers to smoke either. It is 420 after all!
A ZOOM party is always an option if being alone on the day seems just, well, wrong! The app is easy to download and user friendly. These are just a few ideas to get you into the mood, and the fact that Southwest Wellness have a great sale on starting today, should be enough to lift your spirits!
