What is 420, and Why Do People Celebrate It?

There are a few theories surrounding the origin of celebrating on 4/20, from the idea that it could be connected to a famous dictator’s birthday down to the possibility that “420” was a police code signaling marijuana smoking in progress. 

Some even attribute Bob Dylan’s “Rainy Day Women #12 and #35” if you do the math. 

While these are all interesting theories, the most credible truth is that 420 can be traced back to five high school students in 1971. With a joint in hand, they’d meet by the campus’ statue of Louis Pasteur at 4:20 exactly to partake. 

Steve, Dave, Jeffrey, Larry, and Mark became known as “The Waldos” because they met at a wall, saying “420” to each other in secret code.

For a more mellow 420 experience, grab some snacks and settle in for a stoner movie marathon. Watch classics like Dazed and Confused and Half Baked to feel like you’re a part of that world, or mix it up with your favorite genre of film for a fresh twist. 

Spend some time talking between movies (and light up another joint). You’ll enjoy any movie after a hit of Mellow Fellow’s Euphoria Blend Bubblegum Kush Diamonds

Drop a 420 Beats Playlist

If there’s ever a time for a killer soundtrack, it’s 420. Craft the perfect playlist by blending genres to match different vibes throughout the day. 

Take a puff of the Charged Blend Wedding Crasher Vape and put on some sunny jazz for a wake and bake, while upbeat tunes slap for the afternoon sesh. Create a party out of the day by curating the musical experience that’ll be playing in the background throughout the celebration.

Throw a Virtual 420 Bash

It’s the age of virtual hangouts, and if your green friends are far off, why not throw an online party? You might want to set up a Netflix party and enjoy a flick, pick an engaging game like Weed Bingo, or have a virtual smoke-off. 

Whether your friends are in the same room or on the other side of the world, throwing a 420 virtual bash can make the day memorable and filled with laughter.

Dive Into Stoner Lit

If your 420 is best spent curled up on the couch with a good read, delving into stoner literature is the perfect way to celebrate. A true cannabis classic is The Emperor Wears No Clothes by Jack Herer, but a great non-fiction option is Emily Dufton’s Grass Roots. 

If you want some more light-hearted reading, check out blogs online or sift through Wikipedia to learn more about cannabis. Before hitting the books, indulge in a Van Gogh’s Creativity Blend Gummy to maximize the experience.

Zen Out with Weed Yoga

The calming effects of cannabis and the mindful practice of yoga go hand-in-hand. Spend your 420 on the yoga mat with a joint, enhancing the body-mind connection of mindfulness, yoga, and meditation. 

Marijuana is a great tool to help yogis find their flow and experience a heightened sense of relaxation, making for a mellow yet extremely valuable celebration.

Clean Up Your Spot, Make the World Dope

Shift the focus from personal enjoyment to community impact by inspiring friends and loved ones to tidy up their local environment after a puff of a joint. 

Whether a beach cleanup or picking up trash in a neighborhood park, you can channel cannabis into positive vibes and multiply the positive impact of a community working together.

Plant Some Trees, Get Those Good Vibes Going

Still not convinced? Give your 420 celebrations an eco-friendly twist by encouraging the contribution of the planet’s well-being by planting trees. 

Hit up your closest, green-loving friends and find a spot to reforest, extending the celebration of nature beyond the 20th of March.
