Enhance Your 4/20 Experience In These 8 Ways

Whether you’re brand new to cannabis or you’ve been enjoying it for years, you’ve likely heard of 4/20 — the iconic weed holiday. From a cozy movie night to indulging in new products, 4/20 is a time to embrace the joys of cannabis in our everyday experience, however, that looks to you. Plus, this year, 4/20 falls on the weekend, so plenty of us have time to relax and fully celebrate. Below, we’ve curated a list of experience-centric ways to celebrate 4/20 with friends and family at home, after your stop at High Street Dispensary to stock up on your supplies.

Celebrate with a new strain

Trying something unique and artisanal is a surefire way to enjoy 4/20 and a way to embark on a journey of discovery. As you indulge in a freshly packed bowl or perfectly rolled pre-roll, allow yourself to be immersed in a new world of effects. Let ideas flow freely and ordinary activities take on new excitement and meaning. Whether you’re exploring a new hobby or simply enjoying the beauty of your surroundings, why not elevate your 4/20 with the thrill of trying something new?

Not sure where to start? We recommend Garden Greens, one of New Jersey’s first and finest craft growers. Try their take on a classic like Sunset Sherbet, or try Obama Runtz, one of the newer strains on the block.

Try a new-to-you cannabis product

If you’ve always been a flower lover and never tried THC vapes, or you love edibles and are thinking about concentrates, 4/20 is a great time to give a new product type a try. As you’re deciding what you’d like to try, ask yourself:

  • What are my goals for trying a new product?
  • What’s my past experience with cannabis?
  • How do I typically feel after taking THC or CBD?
  • Where will I be and what will I be doing while trying the new product?

Knowing your “why” behind trying something new ensures that you’re more likely to have a good time on 4/20.

Plan a cannabis-infused listening party

Turn up the tunes and elevate your 420 celebrations with a listening party. After all, Record Store Day falls on 4/20 this year. What better way to celebrate than with a visit to Sound Effects Records, just down the road from us at 229 Main Street? Pick up some records, swing by the High Street drive-thru to pick up your cannabis, then head home for an elevated listening party.

Gather your music-loving friends, create a cozy ambiance, and prepare to immerse yourselves in an auditory adventure. Enjoy new sounds and old favorites from your Record Store Day purchases. And with strains like Blue Dream or Lemon Haze to heighten your senses, you’ll find yourself enjoying every beat and melody with newfound appreciation.

Relax with a good movie

You don’t need to go to a huge party to mark the occasion (although there are plenty of 4/20 parties in New Jersey if that’s your thing). Settling in with a captivating movie can transform your 4/20 into a cozy escape, especially when accompanied by the right strain.

Consider the smooth, euphoric qualities of Blue Dream or the uplifting, creative buzz of Sour Diesel. These strains may help to elevate the movie-watching experience by enhancing sensory perception, deepening emotions, and sparking creative thinking. Whether diving into a classic or checking out the latest blockbuster at Cinépolis Mansfield on Route 57 in Hackettstown, the synergy between cannabis and cinema can turn an ordinary night into a memory journey. So grab your favorite snack, sink into your comfiest spot, and let the embrace of entertainment transport you to another world.

Try pairing a strain with your favorite food

Pairing your favorite meal with the right cannabis strain is a great way to turn any ordinary meal into a gourmet experience, especially when celebrating 4/20. On top of being associated with increasing appetite, cannabis offers a diverse range of flavors and a unique opportunity for intentional pairing. Much like selecting the right wine to accompany a dish, choosing the right strain can enhance the flavors and textures of your food.

Consider pairing a rich, chocolatey dessert with a strain like Wedding Cake, or opt for an earthy OG Kush or Northern Lights to enhance the flavors of your savory dishes. There are plenty of restaurants in Hackettstown that suit every craving.

Spend time outdoors, but enhanced

Immersing yourself in the great outdoors is easily one of the best ways to celebrate 4/20. Instead of merely enjoying nature, why not elevate your outdoor adventure with products tailored for the occasion? Picture yourself unwinding after your favorite edible while basking in the sun’s warmth or enjoying your vape during a scenic picnic. Convenient options pre-rolls are also perfect for adding a touch of relaxation to your outdoor yoga session or nature walk — just know the smoking rules of wherever you go.

Pack your essentials, head outside, and let cannabis enhance your experience. Head to AllTrails to find some great hikes near Hackettstown, or check out nearby Stephens State Park and choose your own adventure.

Host a game night

Do you love spending time with friends? Gather your favorite people for a night of entertainment paired with cannabis. Whether you prefer board games, card games, video games, or even karaoke, there’s something for everyone to enjoy. Create a cozy atmosphere, comfy seating, and an excellent selection of products to enhance the experience. Strains that promote socialization and laughter, such as Pineapple Express, are likely to encourage friendly competition and camaraderie as well. Get ready to grab the rice and let the good times roll!

Want to try a new game? We suggest The Dragon’s Hoard Game Shop, right here in Hackettstown. Make a stop there before picking up your cannabis from High Street.
