Celebrating April 20 – Weed Day

Celebrating April 20 – Weed Day

April 20. Seems like a regular day, doesn’t it? Well, it is. That is unless you know a thing or two about cannabis, perhaps even indulge in it. Those who understand its significance will often call it 420. They would also know it’s not pronounced as four hundred and twenty but as “four-twenty.”

Celebrating this day may have started as an American tradition but, with time, it has become a global festivity. We can only expect it to become more commonplace as marijuana legalization becomes the norm.

In the meantime, let’s explore the origins of these days and discover fun activities to partake in as we mark it.

Why Did 420 Become Weed Day?

420 was a few days ago, and maybe you never heard of it before or partaken in it but can’t understand why people chose that particular day. Most people, even dedicated stoners, aren’t sure where the whole concept of 420 came from. However, many have vague recollections of stories about it. Some say it has something to do with the number of active compounds in marijuana, while others say it originates from teatime in Holland.

A few, for some reason, mention Adolf Hitler’s birthday (April 20, 1889), while others allude to Bob Dylan’s famous “Everybody Must Get Stoned” chorus from his classic “Rainy Day Women No. 12 & 35.” (12 multiplied by 35 does equal 420). A stretch? Things can get pretty woozy in the cannabis universe.

So what’s the truth? Well, it all started with a group of five California teenagers in the 1970s who used to congregate outside their San Rafael school beside a wall. These boys (called the Waldos because of their affinity for the school wall) would meet up and go to smoke some herbs and search for free-growing greens in nearby Point Reyes Forest.

They would remind each other of their sessions to hold by 4:20. While they didn’t find any free weed, they found something that has stood the test of time. They coined the term 420, which allowed high school students to talk about cannabis without the adults figuring it out.

Fun Activities to Include in Your 420 Roster

So now you’ve figured out where this bizarre term originated from, you may be wondering how to get in on the fun. Though this year’s celebrations have already gone, there’s always next year, and you can use these ideas to make it a blast. But most importantly, you don’t even have to wait for the date to enjoy these activities!
Here’s what you can do.

Get Yourself Some 420 Weed

On Election Day 2020, three states — Arizona, Montana, and New Jersey – enacted laws allowing adults to use recreational marijuana. With the addition of New York, Virginia, New Mexico, and Connecticut’s proposals for 2021, there are now 18 states where recreational marijuana is legal.

Recall that recreational marijuana was banned in the United States just ten years ago. Marijuana is now readily available to Americans around the country, including in Washington DC. Here you can discover DC weed delivery services that have 420 deals for you. For example, Apple Dream Shop had pre-rolled joints for 10$ and gifted flowers for 40$ on the day. If you missed this offer, there’s no need to worry because we still have some of the best marijuana pricing in the DMV.

Thanks to holiday deals and an increasingly judgment-free society, you can relax, smoke, and save money. Get your parcel to your front door in record time with a reliable weed delivery in DC like Apple Dream Shop.

Make or Buy Delectable 420 Edibles

Cannabis and food go together like bread and butter. You’ll probably want to eat something substantial when you have the cravings. Edibles are a great way to celebrate the unofficial holiday. We should not forget that we are still in a pandemic, and with edibles, there are no joints, bongs, or pipes to share.

When preparing edibles, the options are boundless, from the conventional brownie to the almond chocolate bar. When THC, the primary component in marijuana, is heated, it bonds to fat cells, making a range of oils excellent for bringing the cannabis experience into your stomach.

If you don’t want to prepare the perfect edibles yourself, you can buy some. Apple Dream Shop stocks many tasty treats infused with high-grade THC to make your weed day spectacular. You can have these delicious edibles delivered to your doorstep by purchasing one of our gift shop items. After that, you can select which treat you want us to gift you as a thank you for your purchase.

Have an Outdoor Party

Taking your 420 festivities to the vast outdoors will give it a natural, carefree feel. It’s soothing, entertaining, and even a bit psychedelic to enjoy the beauty of nature with friends. Carry some greens, drinks, snacks, and blankets along with you. Don’t forget to bring a portable speaker or guitar to play your favorite groovy tunes in the woods.

Light Up Some Wish Paper

Burning some flying wish paper is an enjoyable activity that has become popular among millennials. 420 party attendees may use this small scrap of paper to write their private wishes, then roll it into a ball and ignite. The flying wish paper will flutter upwards until it vanishes miraculously.

On a day like 420, many people will benefit from such a symbolic activity. It’s also a chance for folks to talk about their craziest fantasies while stoned.

Visit Apple Dream Shop

Visiting a smoke shop fits the 420 theme perfectly, and while Apple Dream Shop doesn’t sell cannabis products, we have them on display for gifting. Stop by on the next 420 or, better still, today, to pick out exclusive gift items such as t-shirts, hats, and watches for yourself or your loved ones. In exchange, we offer an extensive selection of gifted THC staples like flowers, oils, and much more.
