5 Ideas for a 4th of July Gathering

Posted: May 26th, 2023

The sun is strong and the beach is calling – summer is in the air.  And is that a hint of cannabis wafting on the breeze? But we digress… 


We’re bringing our sessions, shared meals, and even walking meetings outside. Do you know what goes great with open-air eating? You guessed it! Cannabis is a great way to enhance both the cooking and eating experience. 


For the cooking part, THCV-rich strains are a great choice, thanks to THCV’s creativity-enhancing properties. And for eating, you can’t go wrong with the rest of the Garden Society lineup. If you need ideas for how to transport your food adventure outside, we’ve got you covered there, too!


Backyard BBQ

Every grillmaster has told you it’s officially the start of BBQ season, and there’s no better way to kick it off than with a casual cookout. We recommend picking a theme for inspiration. The one we’ve chosen below is all about latin vibes.

Picnic in the Park

What better way to enjoy the beautiful weather along with the company of friends and family than a picnic in the park? Plus, if you pick a spot with a playground, the kids can entertain themselves, while the adults kick back on the picnic blanket.

Cannabis pairing: Microdosing is a great way to enjoy cannabis in a public setting, so you can enjoy the mood-boosting benefits but still keep your wits about you. Might we recommend our delectable Milk Chocolate with Chai cannabis edibles?

Dinner on the Deck

Dining al fresco doesn’t have to be a big to-do. If low-key is more your vibe, a simple dinner on the deck with your partner, roommate, or just yourself is a lovely way to spend an evening. And you can do it any day of the week with the weeknight-friendly menu below.
