TOKE & SWIRL
It is officially 420 all month long in California. Many celebrate the month, the date and even the 4:20 hour as a ritual. Whether you smoke bowls or not, most people often recognize this cannabis celebration. Even the closet smoker can now join along as many states have agreed to legalize.
Enjoying wine and weed may be the most common form of mixing. Adjusting each buzz to achieve a successful "crossfade" is the ultimate goal. How to achieve this combined power, that is also working together, to create a synergy is one hot topic. It's the concept of the whole being greater than the sum of its parts.
Bonging, vaping and dabbing are a few other ways to ingest marijuana. Each have varying effects. Be mindful. Feel it. Truly scanning through your body and checking in is the first step before you get on the flying cloud and float off, off and away.
Tasting, savoring and even slurping are also methods of experiencing the truly grand joie-de-vivre of a gorgeous wine. Tune in. Find the right balance to relish in the "nirvana du vin". Groove with your glass and get all the feels.
Inspired by this stoner holiday, I enjoyed Champagne, a slight hint of ganja smoke and allowed my thoughts to flow. This year, I paired a fully dense and fruity Ice Cream Cake, Top Shelf Hybrid Weed Strain with the absolutely exquisite, J. Lassalle Cachet Or, Brut, Premier Cru, as I explored the phenomena of this international smoking holiday.
If you are celebrating, sit back and enjoy one of the many benefits of the sacred herb, cannabis sativa. Be happy when you find the rhythm within. Remember, weed is positive. Lift the glass. Settle in. Cheers!
