Top 5 ideas and activities to make 4/20 unforgettable

4/20 is a holiday specifically for stoners, so you should take the time to really celebrate! Get off your couch, grab some friends, and enjoy these five ideas and activities for an unforgettable 4/20 experience.

Smoking weed every day is fun, but it can get kinda old after a while, right? The 20th of April—the notorious stoner holiday—calls for a special kind of celebration. So here we are, sharing with you a few special 420 ideas and activities to make this holiday one to remember.

All the best 420 ideas involve going out and sharing your passion with like-minded people—so leave lonely smoking sessions for the rest of the year and enjoy some of the best 420 day activities in a social setting.

1. Enjoy the Great Outdoors

Okay, Brad Pitt was hilarious as the spaced-out stoner glued to his couch in True Romance, but it’s time to shatter this stupid stereotype. We’re much more outgoing than they paint us!

So, if the weather is fine—which, at the end of April it most likely is (depending on where you live)—put on your hiking shoes, lead your friends to the most picturesque place you can reach on foot, and smoke a celebratory bowl there.

Just be prepared for a loooong way back home. Your progress will seem so slow that you’ll often feel like running, which is actually pretty fun in its own way.

2. Throw a Party With Smoking Games

Is there a better day to be stoned out of your mind than 4/20?

Smoking games have the same goal as their drinking versions—to get the whole party blasted. Some (like Seven Tokes to Infinity or Last Man Standing) are the same as doing shots, while others (Never Have I Ever and Bong Pong) just replace a gulp with a puff, but there are dozens of games that only weed smokers play.

Best print them out or save them on your phone—after a couple of rounds, you won’t remember your own name, let alone some convoluted game rules.

3. Host a Stoner Movie Marathon

If a noisy gathering isn’t your thing, why not spend a quieter evening watching stoner movies with your friends?

The trick here is to agree on a playlist in advance—otherwise, you’ll lose too much time squabbling about who likes what and end up watching overhyped blockbusters that will leave everyone disappointed.

Just as a starting point, we suggest the Harold & Kumar trilogy or the Cheech and Chong oeuvre (there are at least a dozen films). By the way, the plot doesn’t have to revolve around potheads. Some movies are about something else entirely, but somehow appeal to you even more when you’re high. Scott Pilgrim vs. the World, anyone?

4. 420 Ideas Involving Food: Dabbling in Cannabis Cuisine

420 edibles

Marijuana-infused edibles have been growing in popularity in recent years, but a surprising number of hardcore weed smokers haven’t yet tried eating their favourite herb. This is something that needs to be remedied.

So, treat your friends to some mouth-watering edibles, or, better still, invite them to a cooking party. Just remember that the staple ingredient (cannabutter) needs to be made beforehand. If you have it in your fridge, there’ll be hundreds of great recipes available to you. All you need to do is replace butter with cannabutter.

Just don’t forget that taken with food, marijuana needs about an hour and a half to kick in. So, if you want to be high at 4:20, eat your edibles for lunch.

Enhancing the High With Certain Products

Due to the so-called entourage effect, the high created by THC can be modulated by terpenes (smell and taste) and other natural chemicals in your weed.

You’ve probably heard that many of those substances are also present in large quantities in foods like broccoli, nuts, chocolate, and, of course, mango.

While no one will come to your 4/20 party if you’re only serving broccoli, mangoes are a different story. Who can say no to a bowl of fruit salad with large chunks of this tropical fruit?

This fruit is said to contain a lot of myrcene—a relaxing terpene that enhances the high, making it more intense, profound, and long-lasting. Therefore, mango is a must for the 420 snack table!

5. Treat Yourself to a Juicy 4/20 Promo

The beauty of 4/20 promotions is that they come exactly at a time when you need to buy seeds for the outdoor season.

For purchasing cannabis seeds this April, we highly recommend Herbies Headshop. On 4/20, they celebrate with HUGE discounts on the sweetest of genetics for a whole week following this international cannabis holiday.

To give you just a taste of this delicious bonanza, Herbies is offering:

  • Up to 35% discounts
  • More than 40 participating dessert strains
  • Such hits as Wedding Cake Auto, Girl Scout Cookies, and Delicious Candy
  • Famous participating seed banks like Barney’s Farm, Delicious Seeds, and Dutch Passion
  • Stealth shipping and bonus seeds

The holiday will pass, but you’ll get another one when the seeds arrive on your doorstep.

At the very least, you can light up at exactly 4:20, surrounded by dozens, or hundreds, of happy and proud people. This is the kind of experience that should get you high even without the THC!
