No Thanksgiving would be complete without greens, right? And, we're talking about the good kind that makes your weird Uncle Ted tolerable, dare we say even likable, not the kinds that get shoved underneath a napkin.
As more and more states begin to legalize medical marijuana, it has the ability to quickly rise to fame as another spirit to be consumed during the holiday season. After all, nothing says cheer and thanks, like passing around a packed bowl with the cousins, aunts, uncles and maybe even grandma.
How to Approach the Subject
This one can be tricky. Start by slyly bringing it up with a close cousin, sibling or someone of similar age to gauge their interest.
If there are certain family members who aren't open to it, it's important not to push the subject. Make sure you're armed with facts about the safety of marijuana, and maybe even a few uplifting anecdotes.
In a pinch and don't have a Smoke Buddy on you? That's okay. Check this out to see how to make a DIY sploof (to keep the smell out and the good vibes in).
How to Pick the Method
Bongs, pipes, joints, spliffs -- there are many a term today for smoking our favorite leaf. This all depends on the legality of marijuana in your state as well as the comfortability of you and your family members.
Unless your family are experienced cannabis users, we suggest utilizing a vaporizer or small pipe. While bongs may be the most common way to get high, bongs people tend to take in a large hit that can often lead to people (namely newbies) getting uncomfortably high.
Sativa or Indica?
If you're new to this -- marijuana comes in two forms: indica or sativa. Basically, all you need to know is that indica induces a relaxing, sometimes very lethargic body high while sativa creates an uplifting, more energetic high. For this reason, we'd suggest a sativa or hybrid that's sativa-heavy.
How to Enjoy
To make the most out of this Thanksgiving high, we suggest picking a holiday or comedy movie that the entire family loves. We suggest Christmas Vacation or everybody's favorite, Elf. Both have been high-approved by us. To get a preview to excite the fam, check them out here:
Regardless of how you decide to enjoy getting high with the family this Thanksgiving, remember to obey local laws, relax and let each family member participate in a way that makes them most comfortable.
