Elevate & Celebrate This Fourth of July Weekend

Jul 5, 2024 | Autumn Brands News

Fourth of July weekend is a time to celebrate. Friends and families across the country get together to enjoy the fireworks and festivities that commemorate America’s freedom.

It’s also midsummer, so outdoor activities like hiking, swimming, or playing backyard football are a familiar part of the Fourth of July weekend. Similarly, hosting a barbeque is a quintessentially American tradition, bringing together friends and family for delicious food and memorable moments.

Whether you’re firing up the grill for classic burgers and hot dogs or getting creative with marinated kebabs and grilled veggies, adding our premium cannabis products to your Fourth of July weekend celebration plans is something we think our great county’s Founding Fathers would approve of.

How to Elevate Your Fourth of July Weekend Barbeque

At Autumn Brands, we take patriotic pride in growing some of the best cannabis in California. We only use sustainable cultivation techniques, including pesticide-free pest control programs, for our award-winning cannabis products grown on our coastal Santa Barbara farm.

Made from 100% full-spectrum cannabis, our Warrior and Thrive Elixirs provide precise dosing, making them a perfect replacement for alcohol in delicious summer cocktails and for adding a little spice to your favorite adults-only barbeque dishes. They’re also free from added flavor or additives, vegan, and non-GMO. Just remember to start low and go slow so you can find your dosage sweet spot.

Here’s how you can incorporate our elixirs into your barbeque this Fourth of July weekend so it’s full of good times, great food and even better memories.

Booze Free Beverages

Elevate your usual cocktails by replacing alcohol in your favorite cocktails with a few drops of our Thrive Elixir. This elixir has a perfect micro-dose 1:2 ratio of CBD to THC, 300mg of THC. It is ideal for adding to a Watermelon Lime Agua Fresca, a deliciously refreshing mocktail perfect for summer fun in the sun.

Infused Food

Burgers and buns? Check. Hot dogs and salads? Check. All you need now is a serving of wings. Our co-founder, Hanna Brand, has created a THC-infused buffalo wing recipe to ignite your taste buds. This recipe gets a little extra kick from our Warrior Elixir, which contains 1000 mg of THC and will deliver a full-body rush of relaxing and long-lasting psychoactive effects. Hanna’s recipe makes about 12 wings at approximately 2.5 mg THC per wing.


  • 4 lb. chicken wings
  • 4 tbsp. vegetable oil
  • 2 tsp. garlic powder
  • Kosher salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/2 c. hot sauce (such as Frank’s)
  • 1 ml/approximately 20 drops of Warrior Elixir (33mg THC)
  • 4 tbsp. honey
  • 8 tbsp. butter
  • Ranch dressing for serving
  • Carrot sticks for serving
  • Celery sticks for serving


Step 1: Preheat the oven to 400° and place a wire rack over a baking sheet. Toss chicken wings with oil in a large bowl and season with garlic powder, salt, and pepper. Transfer to the prepared baking sheet.

Step 2: Bake until chicken is golden and skin is crispy, 50 to 60 minutes, flipping the wings halfway through.

Step 3: In a small saucepan, whisk together hot sauce, honey, and the elixir. Bring to a simmer, then stir in butter. Cook until butter is melted and slightly reduced, about 2 minutes. Heat broiler on low.

Step 4: Transfer baked wings to a bowl and toss with buffalo sauce until completely coated. Return wings to rack and broil—watching carefully—until the sauce caramelizes, 3 minutes.

As with any celebration, make sure you consume cannabis responsibly. Ensure you understand the potency of the edibles you’re consuming and start low and slow. Designate a responsible adult as a sober monitor, especially if fireworks or other potentially hazardous activities are involved.

Happy Fourth of July weekend!
