It’s 2021, weed is legal, and there doesn’t seem to be any good reason why we shouldn’t consider providing our guests with edibles at holiday parties this year. Before you start setting out the trays, here’s some tips and information about how to be a responsible host at your next weed-friendly holiday party.
The Importance of Being Upfront About the Weed Edibles at Your Holiday Party
Most of us are used to seeing large alcoholic punch bowls served at parties, but many people are still coming to grips with seeing weed products being used in the wild. As more people are choosing to feature edibles at holiday parties, it is important to make it absolutely clear that those gummies and chocolates on the kitchen counter are actually weed edibles. Just as you wouldn’t want guests to accidentally mistake the alcoholic punch bowl for the virgin punch, you don’t want to be responsible for ruining somebody’s evening with an unwanted high because of bad communication.
Tips for Making Weed Edibles Available at Your Holiday Party
If you decide to make edibles available to guests at your next holiday party, make sure that you:
1. Clearly label everything. Set up a separate table just for edibles and other “adult” treats.
2. If there will be children at the party, let parents know that edibles are available, but don’t put edibles out where kids could reach them, even if they’re clearly labeled.
3. Keep it light — a little goes a long way. Stick to edibles with a low milligram count so that nobody gets saddled with more than they expected.
4. Make sure there are plenty of non-THC snacks and treats available because your edibles will work better if your guests have a little bit of something else in their stomachs first.
