Halloween is an exciting time for many a cannabis consumer. Whether you’re staying in or going out, we want you to enjoy, safely and responsibly.
1. Be cautious when mixing alcohol with cannabis
When you’re mixing alcohol and cannabis, there is bound to be some crossfading.
Some studies show that once alcohol is in your system, it can boost marijuana’s effects by opening up your blood vessels, allowing more THC to be absorbed. This can cause people to green out, freak out, and say “I’m out” to any more Halloween shenanigans.
2. Wash your glass, clean your grinder, buy papers and lighters
You don’t serve your friends beer out of an old beer can. You don’t put snacks out on dirty dishware. Take pride in your hobby by cleaning your glass, and grinders, and restocking on papers and lighters. Tidy up that stash box, too.
For the friends that dab, make sure to charge up the Puffco Peak, as well as vape cart batteries.
Set out clean rolling trays, and ash trays, and don’t forget the hemp wick.
3. Serve and store edibles responsibly
Some people may be looking to whip up a batch of their own canna-infused brownies and Halloween sweets. These adults-only treats are not intended for children and should only make an appearance at adult celebrations.
Better still, store edibles in a lockable edibles box or child-proof containers, and always label cannabis-infused foods so adults don’t make a mistake, either.
4. Surround yourself with good friends
Listen, we’ve all been there: Someone can have a particular reaction to a certain edible or some anxiety after the pipe is passed around. No two people will have the exact same experience and this is why it’s good to ensure you have solid pals around who will look out for your best interests.
This includes: keeping friends hydrated with water, getting friends to a safe, comfortable place, and most importantly, reassuring them that they’re going to be okay. That’s what friends are for!
5. Have proper smoke etiquette
Before arriving at anyone’s home, send a quick note to your host to check-in and find out what their stance is on smoking. This will show that you clearly respect their home. If your host gives you the a-okay to smoke, ask about a designated area in case they prefer to keep their home smoke-free or have children.
And always bring enough to smoke with other guests—you’ll want to make sure to share.
6. Don’t operate heavy machinery buzzed
Even though you may not feel like it impairs you–it’s not worth the risk to yourself or others to be driving around stoned on Halloween night. Arrange for a designated driver, call a taxi, or order a rideshare at the end of the night. If all else fails, stay home, stay cozy, and stay safe.
Now that you’ve prepared with these tips, find a dispensary near you and get the Halloween party started.
