The reality is: Now that cannabis is legal in Canada the way all of us celebrate special occasions is set to change. How remains to be seen – but generally, where there’s pot, there’s a higher chance of genuine merriment – including an attitude of tolerance and unity, to be enjoyed by all. Ad we’re here for THAT. Here are a few ways you might choose to infuse your holiday season with cannabis.
Host a spiked-cookie swap. The best cookies in the cookie swap are the ones made with TLC, right? What’s an even better ingredient than that? THC. If you’re proficient when it comes to making cannabutter (or cannabis-infused coconut oil), your options for homemade treats are countless. Here’s a cannabutter recipe that spells out the entire process, from decarboxylation to making sure you get the right dose for your batch. Santa’s going to love these.
Countdown the daze with a cannabis advent calendar. An adult twist on a seasonal childhood staple, this pot-filled advent calendar from Coast to Coast Medicinals ($60 – $325.00) comes in 7 variations – flowers only, indica or sativa flowers only, edibles, low dose edibles, flowers and edibles. Choose how you want to make December days a little brighter.
Make Christmas dinner an elevated one. If you do the Christmas dinner thing, or if you plan on having friends or fam over for a New Year’s Eve celebration, there are many ways to elevate your overall experience, from the meal to the vibe. Nothing brings people together quite like passing a joint around a table, after all.
Give the gift of a great session. Because… what do your friends really want more than that? Splurge on some covetable paraphernalia they’d never buy for themselves and give them something to be really grateful for.
Get active outdoors. With pot. The holidays is a time to of excess and it can just feel like a lot. Bowing out of a obligatory celebration – or forgoing one entirely, to blow off steam outdoors with pals can feel super freeing. Paired with pot, even more so. Activities like skating, tobogganing or even going for a walk in some nature can offer a chance to get the breath of fresh (cannabis-infused) air you need to stay feeling healthy and calm.
Create a high-vibe cannabis ritual to get into the mood for gratitude. This is what the holidays are ultimately about, right? What we don’t often talk about is the fact that gratitude doesn’t come easily when we’re stressed out, feeling broke, or surrounded by people who test our patience. Grounding into a ritual that feels sacred to you can help you access the real meaning of the holiday season – which is personal!
Wishing you and yours the greenest of Christmases.
