Happy Thanksgiving ’22 from Garden Society
Posted: November 18th, 2022
Happy Thanksgiving from our Garden Society family to yours! We hope your holiday is Blissful, Bright, and Calm. And if you need any help with those feelings we have JUST the solution. If asked to bring something to an adults-only dinner gathering, why not offer up a cannabis-centric charcuterie? Peppered between the cheese, crackers and nuts, you can tuck in a few Garden Society delights, and just like a typical board, there’s something for everyone.
The Old Timer
We all have the wacky uncle who launches into the speech about how he used to smoke “back in the good ol’ days when cannabis was natural and not like all that science experiment stuff you kids smoke now.” Which is about the time we point out a Brighter Day Rosette tucked next to the 12-month aged gouda, and explain how Garden Society was founded on the principles of uncompromising quality, responsible farming, sustainable ingredients and strain-specific cannabis like the uplifting sativa dominant pre-roll he’s about to enjoy. “Trust us,” we assure him, “it’s much higher quality than what your high school friends were growing in their garage.”
The First Timer
Your great aunt might do a double take when she sees a ‘joint’ sitting on the charcuterie board but a reassuring smile can help set her at ease. Once she looks around and notices all the adults have a Rosette with their name on it, she’ll sit back and relax, or at least she will soon. We’ve carefully selected the High CBD Rosette or our new Sparkling Strawberry Rosé Gummies for the less experienced guests at the table. Our blend of sungrown Mendocino and Sonoma cannabis contains a 15:1 CBD to THC ratio so guests can relax but remain clear-headed and the Gummies are fast-acting as to not offer any surprises later in the evening.
It’s no secret the cousins can rattle off the terpene profiles of their favorite strains and how many milligrams an edible needs to contain before they feel any effects. So, we’ll point out the Hash Rosettes from Brighter Day to Blissful Rest in an effort to mellow them out a touch. It’s the perfect combination of full-flower, sungrown cannabis sourced from premier Sonoma and Mendocino County farms and dry-sift hash made in-house. Voila. Comment on the subtle lavender notes from the linalool terpenes as they enjoy the aromatic herbal undertones of mint and sage and they’ll rediscover their love for fresh flower.
Not everyone finds joy in smoking cannabis. Even a few puffs is enough to send our mother-in-law into a coughing fit that starts to draw sideways glances. For her we’ve swapped out the chocolate-covered almonds with a fair-trade, artisan crafted, cannabis chocolate from Sonoma County. Since it’s early in the evening we’ve paired her with a Spiced Dark Chocolate with Chili or our new Peach Prosecco Wine Country Gummies to keep her uplifted. Each chocolate edible contains 10mg of THC from full spectrum sativa dominant cannabis and features a hint of cayenne pepper and New Mexico chile powder for just the right balance of sweet and heat or the new Wine Country Gummies complement any sweet and effervescent personalities at the table.
The HIGHlight of the Evening
Somewhere in between soup, dinner rolls, and debates about whether it’s time to take the foil off the turkey in the oven, we’ll all take a walk to the garden to stretch our legs and enjoy those THCV Rosettes we’ve been patiently preserving for the last two hours. As we pass around a lighter and watch the sky change from sapphire to peach we take a moment to reflect on how thankful we are to be enjoying this moment together. We’re thankful for our health, our family, our friends, and all those who have injected bits of joy into an uncharted year. And we’re especially thankful for THCV being known as an appetite suppressor.
From all of us at Garden Society we wish you a wonderful Thanksgiving filled with laughter and joy, we wouldn’t be sitting here without you. Bon appetit!
