When hosting a party, it’s not unusual for some people to incorporate the use of cannabis into the proceedings. But sometimes it’s fun to take things to the next level and have the entire party revolve around cannabis, especially now that legalization is just around the corner. Of course, while the party itself will be all fun and games, planning an awesome cannabis party could take some work. Here are a few tips to help you host an amazing cannabis party.

Pick the Right Strains

If you’re planning a cannabis party, odds are you already know that not all strains of cannabis are created equal. This means you have to be careful about picking the strains that will help create the kind of party environment you want. For instance, sativa strains will help keep things fun and lively, perhaps encouraging your guests to do a little dancing. On the other hand, indica strains may mellow your guests out, leading to a relaxed party environment. Of course, it’s also a party, so having a few hybrid strains could help keep things interesting.

Have Options for Consumption

As host, it’s your job to make sure everyone’s preferred option of consumption is available. Whether people prefer to roll their own, use a vaporizer, ingest cannabis oil, or eat edibles, you need to have all of your bases covered. Doing so will keep your guests happy, and perhaps a few people will experiment with something new. After all, it’s a party right?

Set the Right Mood

This is important for any party, but considering what cannabis use can do to your senses, setting the mood with the right music is key. Your playlist should blend in with whatever strains you have chosen. You also want to make sure the lighting and decorations are going to create a comfortable environment for people, especially once they start consuming the cannabis.

Ensure Comfortable Seating

No one wants to use cannabis while sitting in an uncomfortable wooden chair. Make sure you have soft and comfortable seating available for your guests. This may include bean bag chairs, couch cushions that you place on the floor, or even soft pillows that people can lay on top of during the party. You’ll also want to have plenty of blankets available too. Velvet is really nice.

Play Some Games

After everyone has gotten a chance to have the cannabis take effect, games become a lot more fun. The specific games you want to play are your choice, but we suggest games that require just a little bit of thinking; they tend to be both challenging and fun after using cannabis.

Don’t Skimp on the Snacks

This may be the most important part of planning a cannabis-themed party because people are going to get real hungry real fast. If one of your guests is craving a certain food, you better have it. At the very least, you’ll want to have pizza, burritos, ice cream, and a wide assortment of candy. Of course, depending on how many people you plan on inviting, that may not be enough.

No matter what strains or snacks you get for your cannabis party, make sure you enjoy yourself and take lots of pictures. Enjoy responsibly and bon appetite!
