Dinner and drink parties are a wonderful way to bring friends and family together for a memorable evening of fun connection and celebration. Now that it’s legal to make cannabis a staple at these events more people are looking for new ways to utilize the effects to create a one-of-a-kind elevated experience that’s sure to stand out.

Here we’ll share some ideas that can be used alone or combined to ensure your guests leave satisfied and thoroughly impressed.

Cannabis pairing dinner

Just like with alcohol food can be paired with food in a way that enhances and complements the natural flavors and smells, but it is important to choose the right strains to go with the different types of food you’re serving. One great example of a perfect pairing is mushroom-based dishes and OG Kush as the cultivar boasts a deep earthy profile. Another is the fruity Blueberry strain, which goes great with most sweet desserts.

Infused cocktail party

If you’re looking for a more sophisticated approach then cannabis cocktails could be a great choice. Give your guests the opportunity to create signature-infused beverages that are personalized by setting up a DIY bar, or simply add some cannabis-infused alcohol, tincture or sugar to your drink of choice. There are so many options to choose from so the possibilities are endless. Some of the most popular recipes for infused cocktails include gin and tonic and margaritas.

Elevated edibles potluck

When you’ve got friends or family members who enjoy cooking, it might be a good idea to host an elevated potluck, where guests each bring a course to share. This dinner idea takes some of the pressure off the host since they won’t have to do so much work, and it’s a great way to experience and share new recipes which will inspire attendees to try new things in the future. Just make sure everyone labels their creations accordingly, so everyone can easily keep track of their cannabinoid intake.


CBD wellness dinner

CBD is a hot topic in the health and wellness scene as it delivers numerous benefits like reducing anxiety, pain, and inflammation without the intoxicating high. When you host a CBD wellness dinner there’s no need to worry about how attendees are going to get home safely, and it’s simple to pull off. Just infuse one or more courses with the non-psychoactive cannabinoid, and even those who haven’t tried cannabis-infused foods before may be willing to give it a try for the first time since there’s such little risk of adverse side effects.

Cannabis cooking class

For a more immersive engaging party experience, why not throw a cannabis cooking class for your friends and family? This is a great opportunity to introduce those with little to no experience with cannabis to the process, and you’ll have the chance to teach them using some of their favourite foods. With a combination of fun, education, and a full stomach guests are sure to benefit from the knowledge, and they can even take home their creations.


Hosting a cannabis-fueled dinner party is a wonderful experience for both you and your guests, but it’s important to keep safety in mind. So don’t forget to use low doses, encourage practical consumption, and plan ahead so everyone can get home safely if THC is part of the equation, and you’ll be guaranteed to have a great cannabis gathering you’ll all remember for many years to come.
