The approval of recreational marijuana use is growing fast, with many states hopping on board the legalization bandwagon.
In fact, recreational use is legal in 19 states, and according to recent polls, 15 additional states are leaning towards legalization in 2022.
If you live in a state that allows recreational use and you plan to throw an edibles party, keep reading because we go over nine ways you can make your party incredible below.
Make a Guestlist
You can’t have a marijuana edibles party without guests that are pro-cannabis.
When making your guest list, invite friends and family members that currently consume marijuana or are open to the idea of doing so.
Get comfortable seating
There is nothing worse than getting high and having nowhere to get comfortable.
At a typical party, many people stand around socializing as they drink.
However, an edible party will be much different. More than likely, many guests will feel like relaxing or might become couch-locked.
If you don’t have enough seating, pick up some floor pillows and place them around the main party room.
Choose your Strains
There are hundreds of cannabis strains available, and choosing the right ones can make a huge difference in how your party turns out.
Different strains provide various moods and characteristics, such as:
Choose strains based on the mood you want to set for your party.
Get your Edibles
There are two ways to obtain your edibles. You can purchase premade treats from the dispensary or purchase flowers to make them yourself.
Making your edibles at home may be the better option because:
- You will save quite a bit of money.
- You have control over the potency.
- You can make any items you want.
- You can use strains that weren’t available in edible form when you went to the dispensary.
Consider baking cannabis-infused meals in addition to the typical dessert items. A few examples are soup, mac and cheese, pizza, chicken wings, and dips.
Consider Other Food Options
Not everyone can eat edibles all night.
Some people may reach their desired level of high after one or two treats and still want to snack because those few treats didn’t fill them up.
Also, edibles tend to give people the munchies, and if edibles are the only option available for satisfying those cravings, your guests may get higher than they had intended.
Therefore, non-cannabis food options need to be available to your guests.
The traditional party foods like chips, pizza, and sandwiches are fine.
Additionally, make sure you have plenty of drinks available so your guests can stay hydrated.
Choose a Theme
The best parties have a theme.
Some themes that would be perfect for a cannabis party are:
- Conspiracy theories
- Music eras or genres
- Trivia night
- Casino night
- Murder Mystery dinner
- Alice in wonderland
- Movie night
Your guests can dress up, play games, win prizes, and enjoy the awesome theme decorations at a themed party.
Offer Other Cannabis Options
There are a few reasons you should provide cannabis consumption options other than edibles alone.
Some guests may:
- Be ediblocked and can’t get high from edibles.
- Have food restrictions.
- Not like the high that edibles provide.
- Decide that they prefer smoking.
No matter the reason your guests may stray from the cannabis treats, the main point of the party is to have fun with cannabis. Therefore, you can include everyone and have a great night by offering other options.
Choose the Right Time
Some strains are quite calming and may make your guests sleepy if your party is in the late evening hours.
Although a typical adult party usually starts at night, you don’t want your guests to fall asleep or call it a night soon after arriving.
You can avoid this issue by scheduling your party earlier in the day. Your guests are less likely to feel drowsy if they haven’t already been up and busy all day.
Checklist and Budget
Make a budget and a checklist to ensure everything goes smoothly.
Your budget and checklist should include items like:
- Food and drinks
- Marijuana flower
- Dinner and drinkware
Additionally, you may want to save some extra money for uber rides just in case you have guests that are ready to leave but are too high to drive and don’t have the funds available to order an Uber.
With the proper planning, you can throw an incredible marijuana edibles party. You can do so by offering various food options, a comfortable environment, strains that fit your desired party vibes, and choosing a fun theme for your high friends to enjoy and indulge in.
