Since the legalization of recreational cannabis, I have made it my mission to incorporate legal cannabis into upscale dining events, parties and now I’ve included it into a formal wedding.
As cannabis slowly has become legal in states across the country, more and more couples are including “weed” in their weddings in the same way that alcohol has traditionally been a part of these celebrations. The trend is becoming so popular, in fact, that cannabis wedding expos are popping up around the country.
In my case, my friend, who was a part of my cannabis paired dinners, asked me to be a part of her daughter’s wedding. My friend knew that cannabis could easily be added to the wedding in a safe and yet really fun way.
It is really easy to include cannabis into almost any event, if cannabis is recreationally legal in your state. But, it was truly very easy to incorporate it into my friend’s wedding event space. In that space, I had an outdoor, secluded area, which was away from the many wedding venue. And, even though it was separated from the hustle and bustle of the seating, dancing and eating areas, somehow lots of the invited guests were able to find me and my cannabis bar. Having a secluded area, allowed me to be able to monitor who entered and left-making certain that everyone who entered was of legal age.
Next, I determined that the size of the group who would be consuming. From that number, I could ascertain how much legal product I would need to purchase from my local, licensed dispensary. One thing that is very important, do not give out cannabis products for later consumption, unless they are part of a goody bag. My cannabis bars are for consumption in the designated cannabis bar area and not to be taken home for another event. In that way, it is easier to control the amount of cannabis that is consumed during your event. After all, people usually do not ask if they can take booze home with them for later consumption.
At this event, I determined that it was not a dab kind of crowd or party. So, I went for the basics-joints, micro-dosing edibles, fine quality hash and cbd edibles. I purchased sativa and hybrid strains only to avoid any of the party goers becoming locked in the couch. And made certain that the edibles were individually wrapped micro-dosage cbd:thc gummies and mints, which I gave out to monitor the consumption of the guests. I was also lucky to have my cannabis florist friend join me.. She created a floral joint display and helped me roll joints and keep our bowls filled all night.
And, then we both did a bunch of education all night. Most of the guests knew very little about cannabis nor about licensed, legal products. I was thrilled to have the opportunity to education them on all of it. Our cannabis bar ran during the cocktail hour, which ended up to be a couple of hours. I closed it down when the sit down dinner began. Allowing those that did consume to eat and sober up.
The next day I was contacted by three of the guests asking me if I could do the same thing at their wedding! Weed at weddings are a real thing. Like anything else, if you do them safely, tastefully and legally then everyone has a good time. I am over the moon that cannabis is beginning to be included into more social events, and I am more than thrilled to be the one doing those events.
