While Thanksgiving is the perfect opportunity to spend quality time with friends and family, it can be both stressful and exhausting. Whether you’re preparing a huge meal for friends or enjoying the holiday with family, it’s easy to get overwhelmed. Before you drown your stress in Pino Grigio, consider incorporating marijuana at Thanksgiving this year.
How do you pair marijuana with Thanksgiving? Here are some ideas.
Low-dose drops and tinctures, vaporizers, or edibles.
It’s no secret, CBD drops and tinctures have become very, very popular – in part because they’re super discrete. Simply put a few drops in your drink. It’s likely you’ll consume less alcohol as a result, and feel more relaxed.
Are your friends and family marijuana friendlies? If so, you can also pair individual dishes with complimentary cannabis products. The most straightforward thing to do is think about what wine you might pair with a given food, and choose a strain that would pair well with that wine.
For example, turkey pairs nicely with Pinot Noir. That means it would also pair well with OG Kush, White Widow, and Himalayan Gold.
Successfully pairing food with marijuana has a lot to with terpenes, which are like essential oils in cannabis that give each strain a unique flavor.
The best way to incorporate marijuana in your Thanksgiving dinner depends on your guests. Vaporizers may work especially well at dinner parties if you want to do a few pairings. They’re easy to pass from person to person, are friendlier for people don’t normally smoke, and you won’t be left struggling with the end of a stinky joint.
That said, pre-rolled joints can be great if you buy small ones that you know the group will quickly finish with a trip around the table. A pre-roll is also a nice way to kick off the meal and stimulate everyone’s appetite – fast.
The goal at any Thanksgiving is to have a nice, relaxing, time – not get stoned. So, for dinner, try a satvia strain which will keep people talking and socializing. Indica strains are better for dessert when the evening slows down.
For The Host
And, for hosts, a low-dose edible or high CBD concentrate can make all the difference. Cooking, being on your feet all day long, entertaining – it’s all pretty exhausting. These cannabis choices will keep you relaxed and calm, without fatigue or confusion. A low-dose edible (about 3mg or less) is typically enough to keep you going without making you stoned and forget important steps in the prep process.
There you have it. All you need to know about serving marijuana at Thanksgiving.
