Celebrate 4/20 Green Truck Style!
We here at Green Truck eat, breathe, and sleep cannabis – and the Mother of All Cannabis Holidays will soon be here again. You might say we’re a little bit excited about it.
4/20 is a day to celebrate the cannabis community, the power of the plant, and pay our respects to the wrongly incarcerated, the cannabis icons, and the trailblazers that came before us.
As a medical cannabis facility, Green Truck is well-versed in the art of the 420 celebrations. We’ve outlined some solid tips and tricks to help our readers have an optimal holiday experience, from novice consumers just looking to try, to veteran smokers just looking to get high.
Remember how lucky you are to be celebrating
Before you take your first toke, something to consider – whether you live in a legal state or your area still has firm restrictions on cannabis, pause to think about what had to happen for you to be able to pack your bowl or smoke your joint in peace. Remember to commemorate and pay homage to the folks who have been penalized for consuming cannabis. From the freedom fighters in the early days of prohibition to the philanthropists who are supporting the industry at large today, we salute you.
*The Last Prisoner Project is a national non-profit with the goal of ending the fundamental injustice that is America’s policy of cannabis prohibition and freeing the tens of thousands of individuals still unjustly imprisoned for cannabis. Check out the cause and show your support for National Cannabis Awareness Month.
Have plenty of your preferred tools & product on hand
Are you an edibles-exclusive consumer? Only smoke blunts, dabs, or cartridges? Pick your provisions ahead of time and make sure you have enough on hand in the days leading up to 4/20. Grab those dabs and be set on flower if you have friends with varied tastes, as you’d hate to have to run out in the middle of the sesh.
Looking to stock up? We got you covered! Green Truck is offering 3 days of deals this April. Take full advantage of the savings and pick up a variety of strains and products. Revisit a classic strain you haven’t had in years, or select a new strain you’ve been dying to get a hold of! The best insurance for an awesome 4/20 is to have a hefty supply of cannabis products, and what better products to grab than the ones you love most?
*Make sure you’re subscribed to our Truck Club. You’ll have first access to info regarding Green Truck’s 4/20 specials and additional holiday offerings. Get opted in and have your digital wallet set up to access all of the savings!
Pro-Tip: Don’t forget to prep the accessories. Clear the kief out of your grinder and pay your local smoke shop a visit to scoop whatever you need beforehand. You’d hate to be the one who is scrambling to buy cones or refill your torch instead of enjoying the festivities.
Everybody wants that special piece of glass to show off at the sesh – check out our online store. We have plenty of high-quality glass pieces by local Maine glass artisans, and plenty of papers and lighters as well.
Get the munchies primed and ready
Stoners are a notoriously hungry bunch, and a 4/20 gathering without snacks is less than ideal. If you’re hosting or attending a group sesh, go “pot” luck style and request everyone bring something. You could go as simple as chips & dip, or go all-out and dose different dishes with cannabis oil to share!
Choosing to have a more solitary 4/20 at home? Head to the grocery store and grab the ingredients to whip up your favorite meal, or get takeout if you’re finding yourself a little more couch-locked.
We recommend this quick and tasty recipe for a stoner classic – a taco bar with all of the fixings, tailored just for you and your crew.
A few essentials you will need:
-Hardshell or Softshell Tortillas (based on your preference)
-Standard Taco stuffings include shredded lettuce, cheese, black beans, salsa, avocado, and seasoned ground meat. No need to mess with the classics.
-Breakfast Taco fanatic? Indulge in fan-favorite breakfast tacos: you’ll need eggs, beans, salsa & cheese and the breakfast meat of your choice to whip these up.
-If you have a sweet tooth, consider tweaking the formula and do a dessert taco buffet. To whip up this sweet treat, you’ll need chocolate to melt, your favorite ice cream, and plenty of candy & sprinkles to douse your taco in.
-Get creative! Feel like breaking out the slow cooker? Eyeing a new slaw recipe? Try something new when the munchies strike.
*Green Truck produces and sells our own Rick Simpson Oil and Distillate Darts in-house, which can be used to infuse a number of dishes.
For quick and easy cannabis drinks, we recommend any of the Squier’s Edibles Ready to Drink Cocktails – our favorite is the Blueberry + Lavender Elixir, infused with Green Truck Lemon Pedalz hash.
Have the day planned out
For a day full of good vibes, keep it slow and steady. Don’t overdo it too early, unless your plan is to be asleep on the couch before 4:20 even arrives (not that there’s anything wrong with that…) But if you had grander aspirations for the day, make sure you’re consuming at a steady pace and you know exactly what you’re getting up to!
Start it off with a hike and a joint in the woods, and wrap it up by sparking up an extra-giggly strain and watching Half Baked.
Looking for other ways to spend the day? Do some journaling, hang out with friends, play your favorite video game, or listen to music – we recommend having a playlist ready for the day. Need help finding one? Check out our 420 Ultimate Stoner’s Playlist here. Maybe you’d rather create some art and take advantage of the extra open-minded energy. The goal is to make your 4/20 something really special that works for you.
*Green Truck offers 2g Pro-Roll Donut Cannagars infused with .5g of concentrate – the perfect way to celebrate the holiday in style.
Allow for lots of time to sleep it off
After a day of heavy celebrating stoner-style, you very possibly will head into April 21 feeling a bit fried. Leave plenty of time to rest up and recuperate, if your schedule allows for it. Leave yourself some water by your bed for easy hydration in the morning, give yourself permission to cozy up with plenty of pillows & blankets, and stay put. You’ve done 4/20 right.
*Dealing with the tender, sinusy feeling you get the next day after heavily consuming some THC products? Fear not! Green Truck not only carries several CBD-centric products to help balance you out, we also have our own line of CBD products. Maybe you need a salve, a tincture, or a capsule to get going – check out our menu!
