Food just tastes so much better after partaking in the green goddess, so it’s a no brainer that potheads have turned the most gluttonous day of the year into a stoner holiday. Cannabis enthusiasts have been smoking bud and eating edibles on Thanksgiving for generations, but now we made it official by giving it a name of its own, Danksgiving.
Danksgiving doesn’t necessarily mean that you have to eat marijuana-laced turkey then zone out on the couch for hours. The holiday is just meant to bring cannabis and the traditional holiday together, whether it be by consumingweed edibles or simply spending the day smoking yourfavorite marijuana strain and pigging out with family and friends. If you and your friends love ganja, a weed-infused Thanksgiving may be just what you’ve been missing. It doesn’t take a lot of extra legwork to turn your usual Friendsgiving gathering into a Danksgiving.
Marijuana-infused food may be the highlight of the holiday,but don’t forget to set the atmosphere with some 420 decorations. You don’t have to turn your dining room into a frat house, pot decorations can be extremely classy and tasteful. If you’re in a cannabis legal state, florists may be able to score some cannabis leaves and make a beautiful arrangement. You can also reach out to your local cultivator for some leaves that you can use as a centerpiece or as garnishes for your dishes and drinks.
If you don’t want to rely on your pot cooking skills, try creating a joint and blunt rolling station complete with all the weed rolling trays, rolling papers, herb grinders, ashtrays, and other 420 smoking accessories you and your guests might need to get the festivities started. You can also ask each guest to bring an eight of their favorite cannabis strain to share, so everyone can have a variety to choose from.
Finally, don’t forget to think about how everyone will get to and from the party. No one should be driving under the influence, so be sure everyone has a rideshare at the end of the night or a designated driver. Some people may get too high and will have to crash at your place, so have a comfy spot ready just in case.
The key to great edibles and a fantastic infused meal is to perfect your concentrate recipe. The foundation of all edibles are extractions like cannaoil, cannabutter, cannasugar, cannamilk, or infused alcohol. Despite what you may have heard, making homemade edibles isn’t very difficult after you get the extract down, plus you can whip up a big batch and save it for later. Once you have an extract made, you can follow any recipe you want and simply swap out all or some of the ingredients for the infused version. Grandma’s turkey stuffing just got a whole lot better.
Cannabutter is the most versatile extract since you can use it in virtually any dish that calls for regular butter. The staple also lasts a very long time if stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator, so you can try out lots of different recipes. For more potent edibles, feel free to double the amount of dry herb in the recipe.
