Thanksgiving is a time for gratitude, togetherness and tradition. While the customary holiday feast is undoubtedly a highlight, many are discovering a new “high”-light that enhances their holiday gatherings: cannabis.
While Thanksgiving is intended to be a special time to express gratitude and share quality time with friends and family, it can still be very stressful. From dealing with relatives you’d rather forget to the stress of traveling and cooking the all-important turkey, let’s face it—it’s not always “all gravy.” Fortunately, there’s cannabis, which can be a helpful way to manage the stress of the day. The compounds in cannabis, including cannabinoids and terpenes, interact with our endocannabinoid system, which plays a crucial role in regulating stress and anxiety. By consuming cannabis responsibly and in moderation, some people may find that it helps them unwind during the festivities.
Whether it’s through the calming effects of an indica strain, the uplifting vibes of a sativa or the precise dosing of elixirs, cannabis can provide a gentle and enjoyable way to navigate the sometimes overwhelming nature of Thanksgiving.
Pro tip: If you feel the need to escape for some time out, have a little cannabis and do the dishes. It will help make the chore that much more enjoyable, and most people will probably leave you alone! The bonus is that everyone will think you’re helpful (but you’re just high).
Pre-Roll Pairing for Appetizers
Start your Turkey Day journey with a pre-roll pairing for appetizers. Our deliciously diverse range of 1g pre-rolls are made from cultivars with unique flavor profiles and effects. Pair a lighter appetizer, such as spinach and artichoke dip or deviled eggs, with a refreshing sativa pre-roll to complement the social mingling and excitement of your happy hour.
For a more relaxed and cozy vibe, opt for an indica pre-roll paired with heartier appetizers, like stuffed mushrooms or baked brie. The calming effects of an indica will soothe your guests and let them enjoy the flavors of your carefully crafted dishes.
Flower Tasting During Dinner
Turn your Thanksgiving feast into a sensory experience by incorporating an interactive flower-tasting session. Our premium flower collection contains an array of cultivars, each with distinct characteristics and aromas. Place small amounts of different flower strains in elegant glass containers on the dining table.
Before the meal begins, invite your guests to take a moment to appreciate the bouquet of each strain and discuss their expectations. As everyone settles into dinner, encourage guests to sample the strains and share their thoughts on the flavors, aromas and effects.
Tincture Cocktails for a Toast
Elevate your holiday toast with our cannabis-infused cocktails. Our Warrior and Thrive elixirs offer precise dosing and versatility, making them a perfect addition to your festive beverages.
Try creating a selection of signature tincture cocktails, such as “Cannabis Cranberry Sparkler” or “Autumn Spice Elixir.” Remember to offer a range of tincture dosages to accommodate different preferences, from mild to more potent.
Cannabis-Infused Dessert Delights
End the day on a sweet note by infusing your desserts with cannabis. Our versatile elixirs can be incorporated into dessert recipes to create delectable cannabis-infused treats. Prepare delights like “Cannabis Chocolate Truffles” or “Caramel Apple Pie with a Cannabis Twist.”
After Dinner Games: “Cannabis Charades” With a Twist
Keep the celebration going with a game of “Cannabis Charades,” a classic party game that’s given a fresh twist by combining it with cannabis. Before the game begins, gather a variety of our convenient mini pre-rolls with different strains. As players take their turns acting out a cannabis-related word or phrase without speaking, they must also try a pre-roll from the selection. The chosen strain can influence their performance, making the game—and the evening—more unpredictable and fun.
Wishing you a Thanksgiving that’s filled with gratitude and laughter—and plenty of premium, spray-free Autumn Brands cannabis!
