We’re only 20 days away from our favorite holiday and we couldn’t be more stoked. Since this is a holiday purely dedicated to smoking weed and partying it up, we want to make sure you take all the precautions necessary to not totally overdo it and ruin this joyous occasion for yourself. Don’t be embarrassed, we’ve all done it. That’s exactly why we know how important it is to take care of yourself this 4/20!

Pace Yourself

While you may be tempted to immediately jump into the 4/20 festivities and get as ripped as you possibly can, you’re not going to be in for a fun time if you do. Chances are you’ll have fun at first, but you’ll immediately get burnt out, anxious, or just straight up fall asleep if you smoke too much all at once. Start by smoking as much as you would during your average sesh and then work your way up slowly. Take breaks between bowls to give yourself a chance to really settle into your high and fully enjoy yourself. Certain strains do take a second to really express their high, so give them the time they need to work their magic. Trust us, it’ll be worth it.

Stay Hydrated

Probably one of the most important tips on this list is to keep up your fluid intake! One sure-fire way to ruin an otherwise great 4/20 is a wicked case of cottonmouth. Not only that but being dehydrated can lead to other unsavory side effects like headaches and dizziness. That’s a guarenteed way to kill the fun of 4/20. So, be sure to keep a water bottle or some other drink near you and keep it filled up! Pro-tip: If you want more bang for your buck, Pedialyte and other electrolyte solutions are great for keeping super hydrated without having to chug water all day!

Give Your Lungs a Break

While 4/20 is the holiday of smoking, you want to be kind to your lungs. They can only take so much. Luckily for you, smoking isn’t the only way to get high. To give your lungs a well-deserved break, consider taking some edibles, drinkables, or tinctures to keep the party going. During these breaks, you might also consider doing some deep-breathing exercises to treat those lungs to some fresh sweet oxygen. A couple deep 5 second inhales and exhales is really all you need to get those lungs feeling rejuvenated. If you’re celebrating inside, take a couple breaks throughout the day to go outside, feel the sunshine, and really breathe in some fresh Spring air.

Stock Up On Munchies!

Perhaps the most quintessential ingredient to the perfect 4/20 is a spectacular munchie spread. Stock up on all that good junk, but think about throwing in some healthier options too. While you obviously have to stock up on Cheetos and other goodies, consider picking up some veggies and dip or fruit. Baby carrots and grapes make great finger food and satisfy that munchie craving without loading your body with junk. That’s not to say you shouldn’t also stock up on junk food, because a 4/20 without junk food would be super lame. Just consider throwing in some healthier options so you don’t give yourself a stomach ache and so you can show your body a little love.

Try Strains That Are Higher In CBD

If you stick to high THC strains the entire night on 4/20, you may find yourself not participating in the festivities as much as you’d like. After all, all that THC hammering your cannabinoid receptors might take a toll on you. That’s why we suggest picking up some high CBD strains. Not only will these strains have a lower THC content that will allow you to smoke more throughout the night, but you’ll get all the benefits of the entourage effect when you throw some CBD into the mix.

For those who don’t know, the entourage effect is when multiple cannabinoids work together to provide a well-balanced, full-spectrum high. This means that you’ll experience a broader range of positive effects and may even avoid some of the less desirable effects that come from smoking too much THC like paranoia. Not only that, but the CBD will provide that extra soothing element and have you feeling completely chill and relaxed during 4/20.

Need some suggestions? Here are some high CBD options we carry at Cinder:

Lil’ CBDeezy by Deluge

Pre-Rolled Joint for 4/20

This 0.5g infused pre-roll 2-pack from Deluge is a great CBD option for your 4/20 sesh. It clocks in at 13.12% THC and 13.63% CBD making it the perfect 1:1 joint. This joint is packed with God’s Gift flower and infused with Deluge Premier Rosin for the ultimate smoking experience. God’s Gift is an indica-dominant hybrid that is even said by some to be the most potent indica-dominant hybrid of all time. This joint is the perfect evening smoke that features a distinct fuel-like aroma but tastes like grape, berry, and citrus. The high you’ll experience is almost instant and brings along a full-body effect along with a tranquil, dream-like euphoria.

A personal favorite of yours truly, CBD Runtz is a 1g pre-roll from House of Cultivar that’s great for smoking any time of day. With a THC content of 14.18% and a CBD content of 7.99%, this joint will still get you stoned while also providing all the wonderful effects that CBD has to offer. I personally find this joint to be an incredibly smooth smoke that you can puff all the way down to the bottom without it feeling too harsh. The high is relaxing and mild and makes for a perfect, chill smoke.

Another personal favorite is the 0.6g 3-pack of CBD Cosmic Charlie pre-rolls from Ravengrass. These little guys come in at 4.68% THC and 7.10% CBD so they’re a great in-between smoke to maintain the high this 4/20 without supplementing it further. These are another incredibly smooth smoke and they come in an amazing amber glass vial that you can save for future storage!
