Celebrate Halloween with Marijuana
If you're looking for ways to celebrate Halloween 420 style, you've come to the right place. From marijuana themed costumes and activities, to delicious Halloween marijuana recipes, here are the savvy stoner’s favorite ways to enjoy marijuana as part of a happy Halloween 420 celebration.
Costume ideas for Stoners
The best costume ideas for stoners are unique and memorable. You might be something spooky, sexy, or silly, but whatever you choose, remember that every good costume has its foundation in a comfortable outfit that you feel good wearing. Take a look at your existing clothes or head to the thrift store and browse until something catches your eye. Then, add marijuana-themed accessories until it's just right.
Sexy outfit? Why not go as the irresistible king or queen of marijuana? Just cut some marijuana leaf shapes out of green fabric and sew or hot glue them onto your outfit in choice places to accentuate your physical assets. Then attach some of the marijuana leaf cut-outs to a headband and you have your crown. Roll up a giant fake spliff out of a large piece of butcher paper, crafting paper, or mailing wrap and you have your scepter. Tie on a green cape (you can use a blanket or bed sheet), and the sexy King or Queen of Ganja is good to go.
Want a silly costume, instead? Consider going as a human gravity bong. Carefully cut the bottom out of a large plastic bucket then attach rope straps to the top so that you can step inside it and hang it from your shoulders. Cut off the top half of a three liter soda pop bottle, insert a bowl into the lid or make a fake one out of aluminum foil, add a chin strap, and wear this as your hat. You can cover any rough plastic edges with duct tape so your costume will be nice and comfy.
If a spooky costume is more your thing, consider going as a zombie stoner. You might imitate a zombie version of a famous stoner like Snoop Dogg or Willie Nelson, or create your own look. Cover your face in gray make-up or powder, and add some latex flesh here and there if desired. Grab a bong, pipe, or blunt, and some stoner clothes you can get at marijuana dispensaries like Starbuds North or Livwell Broadway and the effect is complete.
What to do on Halloween in Denver
Halloween just isn't Halloween without some delicious treats! If you like to cook, why not make some tasty Halloween edibles to share with your friends? Try making a ganja butter based buttercream frosting. Pick up some marijuana from a local Denver dispensary (get free coupons on Cannasaver to save money), then just slowly heat the marijuana flowers or shake in the butter until it begins to pick up the color from the herb and becomes fragrant. Strain out the solid bits, cool until solidified, and make the frosting as usual. Add green food coloring for a ghoulish effect or orange for an earthy, autumnal look. Use the ganja buttercream to frost pot brownies or marijuana cupcakes for double the treat, and add plastic skulls or spider rings for that Halloween touch.
Another fun way to celebrate a 420 Halloween is to share a smoke with your friends and loved ones and maybe even ancestors who have passed on. Halloween is a traditional time to pay our respects and remember the dead, and for those souls who loved the weed, smoking a bowl in their honor can be a nice way to show our appreciation. Simply say the name of your lost loved one before you light up, as if you were making a toast.
