As the long, warm days of Southern California’s endless summer start to cast long shadows, it can only mean one thing: Labor Day is fast approaching. Celebrated on the first Monday in September, it’s a day to honor American workers’ social and economic achievements.
If you’re lucky enough to get Labor Day off work, make the most of it! After all, it’s the perfect time to celebrate the long weekend with friends and family—with a touch of elevated relaxation. In the heart of Southern California, where the sun-kissed beaches meet vibrant culture, there’s no better way to enhance your Labor Day festivities than by incorporating some premium cannabis into your plans.
Whether you want to unwind by the ocean or host a backyard barbecue, we’ve put together five creative ways to enjoy cannabis this Labor Day with premium, spray-free cannabis products grown right here on our Santa Barbara farm.
Bask in Beachside Bliss with Infused CannaCocktails
We all know that the Golden State’s stunning coastline provides an idyllic backdrop for a day of sun and surf. Bring a bottle of Thrive Elixir to add to your beverages and transform your beach outing into a relaxing and rejuvenating experience. Simply mix a few drops into your favorite mocktail or sparkling water for a refreshing and tranquil sip.
Pro Tip: Bring a beach picnic with your favorite light snacks and fresh fruits. Set up a cozy spot with beach blankets and comfortable cushions so you can bask in the serene atmosphere. While the setting sun paints the sky in fiery orange and pink hues, find some driftwood and make a beach bonfire to toast some smores.
Host a Backyard BBQ with Cannabis-Infused Grilling
Invite your nearest and dearest over to your place for a classic SoCal backyard barbecue infused with cannabis-inspired flavors. Whip up a batch of cannabis-infused barbecue sauce to slather on your favorite meats and veggies before they hit the grill.
Pro Tip: Set up a cannabis station featuring various cannabis products for your guests to enjoy. Our Warrior Elixir is an excellent addition for cannacocktails; fresh flower for the vapers and smokers; and pre-rolls are perfect for sharing.
Take a Sunset Hike with Pre-Rolls
Southern California’s spectacular landscapes invite you to explore the great outdoors. What better way to do so than with a sunset hike and a pre-rolled joint? Our delicious sativa varietals All Gas No Brakes and Jet Fuel Gelato are available in 1-gram pre-rolls—perfect for throwing in your backpack before you hit the trails. When you reach the destination, spark it up to be present in the moment, connect with nature–and give you a little pep in your step for the return journey.
Pro Tip: Organize a group hike and encourage everyone to bring their favorite pre-rolled joints to share.
Get Your Tie-Dye On
Everyone knows cannabis can enhance creative intuition and imagination. Combine your inner hippie by hosting a tie-dye workshop infused with the chilled energy of cannabis. Select soothing strains that encourage calm and relaxing vives, like our Octane Pop mini pre-rolls.
Pro Tip: Make sure you have enough items like t-shirts, tote bags and bandanas for tie-dyeing. To ensure everyone’s creations are as unique as they are, have plenty of different color options.
Enjoy a Movie Night Under the Stars
Create an unforgettable outdoor movie night by setting up a cozy cinema under the Southern California night sky. Settle in with your favorite films and your favorite cannabis! Choose a consumption method that aligns with your tolerance and preferences and enjoy a cinematic experience while the stars twinkle above.
Pro Tip: Create a range of cannabis-infused snacks and treats to enjoy during the movie, from popcorn drizzled with cannabis-infused butter to sweet treats infused with terpene-rich flavors.
