Get NYE ready!

What are your plans?

Here is what is going on around San Diego this New Years Eve:

Party Planning?

Try our cannabis inspired party suggestions to help ring in recreational use of cannabis this New Years Eve!

Champagne alternative

Try dosing sugar cubes with a 1:1 tincture or use infused sugar cubes by BEdibles, drop in champagne glasses and fill with flavored seltzers. If you want to get extra fancy add a couple drops of organic food coloring to make your mocktails sparkle and pop! Use a variety of colors to make a rainbow and toast the new year!

Cordial Organics makes tinctures and bitters specifically for cannabis cocktails and mocktails. Check out their website for more information!

Pre-Rolls

If you can roll we recommend you grab a nice mild strain like Blue Dream or a high CBD strain if guests are new, curious users. Get to rolling now so you have a socially acceptable amount of pre-rolls, if it is a larger event recruit some friends and have a rolling party for the party! (See our top pre-rolls post HERE)

Can’t roll? Grab some pre-packaged pre-rolls in a pack, it is a better value than buying them as singles. Run to the dispensary and tell them what you are looking for or check online at joinclubm.com or getsava.com either way it is a good idea to test drive them for potentcy before the big night.

Vaping

Are you more comfortable with vaping? If you would like to offer guests a vape bar alternative we suggest contacting The Legion of Bloom or Dank Tank for suggestions of their products. Or if you have a favorite brand you would like to offer a sampling of, regardless, we recommend a charging station set-up close by, extra back-up cartridge batteries that fit. Inevitably these will break, multiples at a time #murphyslaw

Be prepared with back-ups for your back-ups. Not hard to do, a Pax Era is $20 retail on the high end. (We do suggest you go with our recommendations, they by far have the best tasting oils available. We have tried so many and know what actually goes into these things.)

Edibles

Be careful! Low dose. Low dose. Low dose. Did we mention dosing low? Try and keep it under 10 mg, that can feel a lot more potent than you would think. Even regular cannabis smoking patients complain of being edible lightweights.

That being said there are so many great options available, confections like The Garden Society, Lord Jones, To Whom It May Concern Chocolates & 1906 to name a few.

Sublinguals

We mention sublinguals specifically, Kin Slips, because they offer an immediate and effective methodology with a blend of cannabinoids and terpenes to specific effect. A great way to test drive a mild cannabis experience. Low dose and formula specific these dissolvable strips are flavorful, convenient and effective that will last the length of your event.

Party Time!

  2. Braided Lariat

Custom Stationery

Do you know someone who appreciates one-of-a-kind items? Are you crafty enough to have supplies like a cork bottom metal ruler? Excellent, then get to the nearest craft store, pick out your favorite card stocks and envelopes in shades your gift recipients will love! Get fresh can of spray mount, coordinating fabric scraps, washi tape, and embellishments to personalize. Create a set of 8 blank note card & envelope sets, include a metallic gel ink pen to compliment the set colors. This can be especially fun if you are making them for a cannabis patient or supporter.

Not a crafting connoisseur? Well, can you braid?

Braided Bracelet/Lariat 

Head over to Michael’s and pick up a Dazzle-It kumohimo round braiding disk for around $4. With a bit of yarn, embroidery thread or cord you can braid beautiful bracelets, lariats or even a belt! Choose your materials and colors, coordinate your metal end beads and you have a unique, one-of-a-kind gift for the poshest of your friends or family. It is fabulous, easy and inexpensive but looks fabulous, intricate and pricey!

Braiding not your thing? Can you bake anything? (Besides yourself.)
