The holidaze are finally here, and instead of waking up and giddily running to the tree like we did on Christmas morning, we roll over and smoke trees, and sail down the bliss river that is 420. Whether you’re new to this form of recreation and are unsure about the traditions, or you’re a veteran stoner looking for a way to spice up your special day, we’ve got a few possibilities on deck to keep the good vibes going.
So here are a few things you can do to make this 4/20 the most ultimate it can be.
1. Wake & Bake
But we don’t need to tell you this. Goes without saying, right? Start your 420 with the best brain buzz you can and settle in for a day of celebrating the great green.
2. Get elevated
You can go to an Elevated Event where one of a kind mind-body-spirit experience. Your choice of MJ to prepare for a nice slow flow, followed by a sage and sound healing session. Then you can chill out with music, edibles and general good vibes to decompress. There are plenty of these types of spiritual events in California. Especially outside LA
3. Fly to Amsterdam (the Mecca of Pot)
Some might say that Amsterdam pot isn’t even the best in Europe or that the region is nothing more than a tourist trap. But screw that. There’s a reason Amsterdam has become this iconic place in pot culture, enough so that (for better or worse) it’s the first thing that would come to most people’s minds when they hear the city’s name. Get over there, bring your camera so you can remember everything that happens, and go crazy. Not crazy enough to end up in a real life version of Hostel, but crazy.
4. Gravity Bong party
Everyone’s favorite absurd way to smoke up in college needs to be tried at least once. Some say it’s the most potent way to get high. Other say you just look like an a-hole. But either way, it’s an important part of pot culture.
If you’re enough of a pot smoker to be checking out this list, I’d have to assume you’d have already crashed through this barrier. But if you haven’t, now’s the time to do it. So grab that special guy or gal in your life and let your two bodies become one. Bonus bucket list points for involving extra people, objects, or foods.
6. Get high at a transcendently beautiful location
Light up at Machu Picchu? Take a hit at the Grand Canyon? Hotbox before entering the Sears Tower’s Glass Box. The only thing that could make these locations more mind-blowing than they already are is the welcome addition of weed. Just remember safety first. By which I mean always wear a condom while getting high and falling into the Grand Canyon. It’s just good manners.
7. High in the sky
Odds are that going into space while high isn’t something you’ll be able to approach in the next decade or two, so why not do the next best thing and get on a hot air balloon ride? Check out the majesty of the earth, say “Wow, everybody looks like ants from up here!” seven hundred and thirty times, and bring your big book of Jules Verne jokes that you’ve been saving up for just such an occasion.
