Fall is here, a shock that’s made certain by the changing of the leaves, from bright, lively green to various red, yellow, and orange tinges that are beautiful. You can feel the chill, which means that it’s time to start planning an extravagant Thanksgiving feast to celebrate and give thanks. It’s also harvest season, which is perfect timing if you’re gearing up to host or attend a cannabis-themed gathering this year. Whether you’ve got a pound to share or are just looking for fun ways to ring in the holiday with weed, this list of ideas is for you!

1. Infuse a portion of Thanksgiving dinner

Most Thanksgiving dinners include sides, entrées, or sauces that can be infused with cannabis quickly, and if you want to go the extra mile, you could even offer a whole canna-turkey. This way, people can control how much cannabis they take in with a pour or a slice. It’s also a good idea to keep the majority of the meal unaltered so that everyone can fill their stomachs without having to worry about consuming too much. All it takes is one or two infused choices, and your meal will feel complete.

2. Offer cannabis drinks

It’s not uncommon to find wine aplenty during the Thanksgiving season, and it’s almost always paired with a giant meal to celebrate the occasion, but what if you stocked up on cannabis drinks instead? Of course, some people prefer booze over weed, and as such, accommodations should be made to respect everyone’s choices, but if you want to provide your guests with a way to top up with more cannabinoids after a meal, there is no better way than with a pitcher of cannabis juice or a glass of weed-infused smoothie.

3. Play fun weed games

There are so many fun weed games out there to choose from that it can be hard to find the perfect one, but once you do, it’ll be a match made in heaven! You can find digital 420 apps that allow multiple players to connect through the same platform or opt for something more old-school like card games to entertain your guests. It’s usually not hard to adapt drinking games so that they fit cannabis instead, and once you get creative with this idea, there’s no telling where it might take you. Whether it’s original or store-bought, you’re definitely going to want to offer a cannabis-themed game to keep the party going all night long.

4. Engage in meaningful cannabis conversations

Once everyone is filled up with delicious comfort food, high on cannabis, and done with mind-bending or skill challenging games, it’s the perfect time to start on those meaningful conversations about the plant. You know the ones that change perspectives, allow us to vent, and connect with others who are experiencing similar problems, struggles, and successes. By this point, they’ll come naturally, with ease, and you never know which direction it might take you, but you’re sure to be enlightened, uplifted, and have fun along the way.

5. Weed snacks or desserts

Most traditional Thanksgiving desserts and snacks all have one thing in common, and that is a whopping load of fat which makes them easy to recreate in an infused variety. Whether a recipe requires chocolate, oil, or butter, it can be instantly transformed into a powerful edible by swapping just one ingredient, and they can be decorated to be a whole lot of fun.
