2023 is right around the corner! If you’re looking for a unique way to celebrate the New Year, why not host a cannabis-themed party?
One of the best ways to mark the passing of another year and the arrival of the new one is to host a New Year’s Eve party. There’s no denying that nights of booze and/or cannabis use may work up quite the appetite. This is where an annual New Year’s Eve celebration with delicious food comes in.
Throwing a big New Year’s Eve party can be a lot of work. Here are some tips for arranging a stress-free (or at least less stress), weed-friendly New Year’s Eve party:
Plan your party – decide on a theme, guest list, and food/drink menu
Make sure everything goes off without a hitch by making a party planning checklist and an event timeline. You can still host a fantastic party even without prior experience. Break down the party into the smallest parts and arrange them in the order they need to be done.
Picking a theme is a fun way to add extra energy to the celebration. Making online invitations, picking out decorations, planning a menu, and settling on party games are all made simpler with a set party theme. For example, you could do a white party or a green party to celebrate the cannabis theme. The food could be green-focused (“eat your greens!”) and the decorations could be green. There are many themes to consider: Roarings 20’s, disco, black tie, 00’s, 80’s, costumes, and so many more!
Even though your party might be more about fun, friends, conversation, or even dancing – one of the most important aspects of any party is the food and drinks! Take the time to think through your menu. If you’re planning a long evening, you’ll likely want appetizers, dinner (or buffet, finger foods, etc.), and dessert and coffee to follow.
Plan for enough drinks and plenty of food. You can also ask your guests to bring a bottle of wine or champagne to enjoy. You can even host a potluck so everyone brings a dish and you don’t have to do it all yourself. Make a detailed shopping list or order your catering well in advance so you aren’t panicked or scrambling last minute.

Create Fun Activities for your Guests
Celebrate the New Year with fun cannabis-friendly games with your friends and family! Here are some great ideas:
Two resolutions and a lie
Playing two promises and a lie with your pals is a great way to gauge how well they know you. Get everyone to form a circle and get started. Every visitor at the party will have the opportunity to make three declarations, two of which will be genuine New Year’s resolutions and one of which will be convincing imposters. At the same time, the other guests try to identify which one is lying.
Playing this game at any point in the evening is great fun, but it could be especially effective as an icebreaker if the night has yet to get along.
New Year Eve’s poker match
The best poker games can go on for hours. This strategy game is a lot of fun and a wonderful way to pass the time til the clock strikes 12!
Never have I ever
Have you ever played weed-smoking games? This old favorite is best enjoyed with a good amount of weed! Choose who among you will go first.
The chosen person will say, “Never have I ever,” before any action or behavior. During a group smoke break, anyone who doesn’t share a drag has to do so at the end of the round. Once one player continues the sentence with “Never have I ever,” the next player continues the sentence with “Never have I ever,” and so on until the cannabis is finished!
This is a multiplayer variation of Traffic Lights. Set a limit on how many hits each player can take per turn. Experienced stoners should take two hits, but beginners should take one.
Player #1 gets a hit before passing to #2. Everyone must hold their breath until it’s their turn to smoke the joint. Exhaling or coughing ends your turn.
Serve Cannabis Edibles and Drinks
Cannabis cocktails let you relax and socialize while enjoying marijuana’s benefits. There are numerous tasty ways to make cannabis drinks for the holidays.
These drink ideas can liven up your happy hour or holiday parties!
CBD and Cranberry Champagne
Of course, no New Year’s Eve party would be complete without a celebratory CBD champagne toast at midnight! If you want a sweeter euphoria, melt some CBD or THC ice cream and add it to the cocktail.
CBD Mint Julep
To put your relaxation into hyperdrive, nothing beats a strong and refreshing cocktail. The MJ Healing Herbs Mango Gelato Strain overtones provide a great backdrop that elevates this whiskey-based cocktail to the level of a genuine porch whopper.
CBD Pimm’s Cup
The twist on the classic Pimm’s Cup incorporates CBD-laced ice cream to complement the cooling effects of cucumber and ginger.
