What’s the coolest new trend in cannabis? Nothing less than weed themed parties, fully equipped with a weed bar, budtender and goody bags.
In January, Miley Cyrus threw a dope, weed-centric birthday party for her fiancé, Liam Hemsworth (most known for his work in the Hunger Games movies). The high-quality event took place in Malibu, California on Friday the 13th (cue spooky music). A source told US Weekly, “There was literally a whole bar with bowls of joints, laced chocolate and bags of marijuana for guests to take.”
According to partygoers’ Instagrams, there were also giant pizzas and, of course, fully-stocked goody bags, courtesy of Snoop Dogg’s company, Merry Jane.
It’s not just celebrities hosting cannabis-themed parties.
With the legalization of recreational marijuana in Colorado, Washington, Oregon and recently, California, Nevada and others, 420-friendly fiestas are becoming popular for anyone over the age of 21. How am I so sure? Because I threw myself a marijuana themed birthday party in December.
It was a relaxing Sunday afternoon at a beautiful backyard in Topanga, California with a view of the canyons. There was an enormous outdoor table covered in freshly baked medicated treats, joints, vape pens, other refreshing snacks like caprese bites and clementines, plus plenty of water. I invited all of my favorite industry people and friends to indulge with me, and we had a super chill afternoon.
Back in September, I went to my first cannabis party, White Rabbit High Tea, and had the time of my life. So when my birthday rolled around, I called host, Jessica Eriksen, to help plan my soiree. She helped me reach out to all of my favorite cannabis brands to sponsor the event, and the results were magical.
