How To Have A Marijuana Bachelorette Party

While bridal showers sprouted in 16th century Europe, it wasn’t until four decades after the term “bachelor party” was cemented (in a 1922 Scottish magazine) that the “bachelorette party” was born, coinciding with the women’s liberation movement of the ’60s.  Since then, women have been living it up with day drinking, gay bar visits and dancing.  But as times change and Gen Z drinks less, here is how to have a marijuana bachelorette party!

Before the big show, the sacred act of gathering for hen night is its own important party, and one lots of brides and nontraditional grooms would agree needs a big hit. If you’ve ever gone to a bachelorette or bachelor party of any sort, you know it must have the right crew, the right setting, and the right amount of party fuel to please the guest of honor.

Some betrothed love an intimate gathering, no friends of the partner allowed, others thrive on huge co-ed bashes, and still more go for a destination vibe. When you’re involving cannabis in the mix, it takes a little bit more planning, but once you’ve got the vibe right, you’re all set to take any journey.

Who

You may be wondering if anyone who doesn’t partake of the herb should come to a cannabis hen night, but just like those who don’t drink can hang around with the imbibers among us, it’s OK not to be a fan. Provide and clearly label non-infused goods so guests don’t have to wonder all night what is safe to eat. In some cases, it’s best to keep anything infused in a closed or sealed container is also labeled, so less mindless accidental grazing occurs.

Cannabis Tours President Heidi Keyes knows how to throw a great party for people with unique tolerances. She tells The Fresh Toast, “Please remember that your crew are all going to have different levels of comfortable highs and varying consumption experience, so don’t assume that all products are one-size fit all.”

For the pros in the group, taking extra care to let them know where they can find any infused products you’re serving as well as providing clear instructions on suitable smoke spots will save lots of time and stress for the host.

What

No one wants to have a subpar or stingy bag to kick off their friend’s “last night” as a single. If your group is about quantity, make sure to get extra flower and plenty of papers, vape bags, lighters, pieces, or needed accoutrement. If there is more intention put to quality, or you have a bunch of lightweights, consider going with less product of a much higher caliber.

Fancy joints and blunts can cost a pretty penny, but if the group isn’t taking them to the face, they should last all night. Know your audience and even ask for preferences, people are happy to share their favorite strains and products.

Where

Planning a party of this scope requires that you either live in a legal state or have a really good plug. If you’re in a prohibition state, consider a destination party. Places like Las Vegas and Palm Springs are primed and ready for you with legal cannabis, pool parties, and glamorous accommodations.

This can really complete the mood, and when everyone feels at ease, the most fun can happen. 

Whether you’re in the mountains of CO, on a beach in Jamaica, or anywhere from coast to coast, if you’re taking a cannabis vacation, the most important thing is that you know the legalities of where you’re visiting and you have access to safe, legal product and safe, legal events,” Keyes says.

When…to say No

Keyes stresses pacing yourself for any weed celebration, “Let everyone in your party know that it’s always ok to pass— you can say no to a joint, an edible, a drink, or anything else, because everyone has different levels of consumption experience and different tolerances, and there is no shame in that!”

It’s more fun to be present and laughing than zonked out and paranoid, so going slow will always be the best strategy. Keep plenty of CBD-only options around for anyone needing to balance out a THC overindulgence.

Keyes leaves us with the golden rule of weed indulgence: “Make sure everyone is staying hydrated, and even though it’s a party, be aware that mixing cannabis and alcohol increases the effects of both.”
