18 Dec Elevate Your Next Gathering with a Cannabis-Themed Party
As the year winds down and the holiday season approaches, it’s the perfect time to gather with friends and family for celebrations. But why not add a unique twist to your gatherings? How about hosting a cannabis-themed party?
Here are some exciting ideas and essential tips to ensure your cannabis-infused event is a hit without going overboard:
It’s All About the Milligrams!
Start by educating your guests about the importance of dosage. Cannabis-infused goodies can take longer to kick in than smoking or vaping, so it’s crucial to know what you’re consuming. Use small signs to clearly indicate the potency of each edible or mocktail. Focus on micro-dosing, typically 1-5 mg per edible, and consider offering some non-infused treats to cater to all your guests.
Dosage Details Matter
When incorporating cannabis into your event, it’s essential to be transparent about the dosage. Provide clear information on the amount of cannabis in your edibles or mocktails. Unlike smoking or vaping, ingesting cannabis takes longer to have an effect and lasts longer. You certainly don’t want a guest unexpectedly soaring to new heights an hour after indulging in your delicious treats. Aim for micro-dosing, typically ranging from 1 to 5 milligrams per edible. You can also offer non-infused options so that everyone can partake in your culinary delights without cannabis, should they prefer.
Simplify with Cannabis-Infused Mixes
To save time and effort, consider using ready-made cannabis-infused mixes. For example, our Home Bakin’ Brownie Bundle is a simple and delicious option. Just add water to the mix, which includes THC MCT oil, to create 12 brownies, each dosed at approximately 10 milligrams when prepared according to the instructions. Feel free to get creative by adding nuts, chocolate chips, or other ingredients to make them extra special. If you prefer a liquid concentrate, products like Squier’s are convenient for mixing into beverages, sauces, and sweets.
Quench Your Thirst with Cannabis Beverages
Incorporating cannabis into beverages can be a delightful way to enhance your gathering. One easy method is to use cannabis-infused ice cubes. This allows you to customize the strength of each drink by determining how many cannabis-infused ice cubes to add. At our medical store, you can find 100 milligram beverages from Highbrow and at our recreational store, we offer a variety of 100 milligram mixers from Squier’s as well as 100 milligram elixirs. Another exciting option is our Lemonade Stick Packs, which are refreshing lemonade powder packets infused with nano-encapsulated cannabinoids. The nanotechnology ensures a faster onset, making it a perfect choice for crafting signature cocktails.
A Bud Bar and Party Favors
For a diverse experience, consider setting up a ‘bud bar.’ Offer a variety of cannabis strains and educate your guests about each strain’s content and terpenes. You can roll different strains into pre-rolls, prepare bowls, or offer one-hitters for sampling. Your guests can even take the bowls or one-hitters home as party favors.
Infused Warm Beverages:
Warm beverages can also be infused with cannabis. Drop Dark or Milk chocolate coins into fancy coffees or hot cocoa, with each coin containing 10 milligrams. You can even break them into smaller pieces for a milder dose.
Mocktails for All:
Hosting a cannabis-infused mocktail bar adds a fun twist to your gathering. Another delightful option for serving beverages is by crafting mocktails infused with medicated honey. Here’s a scrumptious recipe we’ve prepared in our Mocktail Class, which you can access at Cannabis Adult Education. Here’s a delectable recipe to try:
Black Tea Sour
2 oz. Cooled brewed black tea
¾ oz. freshly squeezed lemon juice
½ oz. grenadine
Infused honey – available in our store, with one teaspoon containing approximately 16.5 milligrams of THC. You can mix in regular honey to reduce potency for a more moderate experience.
If you’re interested in making your own infused honey, you can find a wonderful recipe on SousWeed.
