Bringing Fire to the Big Game Party
If drinking alcohol isn’t your vibe, recreational cannabis has added a whole new element to the game day experience. As the Big Game approaches, now is the time to start planning the cannabis party favors for your get togethers and viewing parties. Written by Randy Villarba
Football is known as America’s game and this year's football grand finale will take place in Glendale, Arizona on Sunday, February 12. Millions of viewers are glued to their TV screens to watch the Big Game, the halftime show and even all the elaborate commercials. Laying out a smorgasbord of food and drink is the norm and beer and wine flows like water at many watch parties.
If drinking alcohol isn’t your vibe, recreational cannabis has added a whole new element to the game day experience. As the Big Game approaches, now is the time to start planning the cannabis party favors for your get togethers and viewing parties.
Super Cannabis Products
We can call it the Big Game. We can even take a page out of Stephen Colbert’s playbook and call it the “Superb Owl,” but we will dare not call this final football championship bowl game by its corporate given name.
We may not be able to call the game by how we all know it as, but we can allude to it with our cannabis product recommendations. Check out this "Super" digital vape pen for your football soirée.
Super Dog is a gassy and heavy cultivar that crosses Giesel and White Dawg cultivars. The Chemdawg genetics within this cultivar are very evident as it offers a gassy, fruity and earthy flavor. Super Dog’s dominant terpenes are limonene, caryophyllene, and humulene. Super Dog is available in vape cartridges from the cultivators and production lab at Connected.
Super Lemon Haze
Super Lemon Haze is a cross of Lemon Skunk with an all time classic Super Silver Haze. Its aromas consist of citrus, turpentine, and hops. This would be a great cultivar to use while getting your house ready for company or as you prepare the game day food and beverages. Its dominant terpenes are terpinolene, myrcene, and ocimene. Super Lemon Haze is currently available in Lost Farm Live Resin Gummies and Himalaya Live Resin Sauce.
Super Silver Haze
Super Silver Haze, a unique cultivar made of a 3-way cross of Skunk, Northern Lights, and Haze. Super Silver Haze is identified by its aroma of skunk, diesel, spicy, earth, and sage. A bold flavor of herbal citrusy lemon, spicy and sour sweet backend, make up the flavor profile. The onset is purported to provide energy that washes over the body and uplifts the mind to a creative and uplifted space. Its dominant terpenes are said to be myrcene, limonene, and caryophyllene. Super Silver Haze is currently available in pre-rolls by Cru.
Cannabis Infused Drinks and Mocktails
The NFL championship game has always been a day where downing cocktails and draft beer are commonplace. If Jack Daniels and Bud Lights aren’t your thing, but you still love the social nature and environment of drinking with your friends, we have a few cannabis infused beverages we would suggest bringing to the party.
Lagunitas X ABX
If you like the ritual of cracking open a can and sipping a cold one, we have a couple options for you. Lagunitas partnered up with the extraction masters at AbsoluteXtracts to create Hi-Fi Sessions infused beverages. Hi-Fi Sessions are a hoppy, cannabis infused sparkling beverage that has zero-calories and zero-carbs.
Hi-Fi Sessions are all infused with the finest THC and CBD from locally-grown cannabis. They are available in three ratios: Hoppy Chill THC Beverage (THC 10 mg), Hoppy Balance 5:5 CBD Beverage (THC 5 mg : CBD 5 mg), and Cloudberry 2:2 CBD Beverage (THC 2 mg : CBD 2 mg).
Cann Infused Social Tonics look like a hard seltzer and are perfect for keeping pace with your friends that drink alcohol. Treat them as the light beer of cannabis beverages. The THC 2 mg and CBD 4 mg dosage means you can build your cannabis infused high at a pace similar to those drinking plain old alcohol.
For those looking for something a little bit stronger, check out Cann’s Hi-Boy Tonic line, which comes infused with 5 mg of THC per can. Cann Infused Social Tonics are inspired by cocktails, made from international ingredients, naturally sweetened and never made from concentrate.
Pabst Blue Ribbon
Pabst Blue Ribbon entered the cannabis space by crafting their infused High Seltzers. If you are looking for that right beverage for a nightcap after a long day of football and socializing, their newest flavor, High Seltzer Midnight Berries, offers a wider cannabinoid spectrum. It comes in at 15 mg of THC, 3 mg of CBN and 2 mg of CBD, which may help you fall fast asleep.
Pabst Blue Ribbon also offers their standard flavors of Lemon, Mango Blood Orange, Passionfruit Pineapple and Strawberry Kiwi. Each of these High Seltzers contain 10 mg of THC per can.
Half Time during the big game is a perfect time to get up from the couch, stretch, walk around and converse with who's at the party. Find a buddy who would want to follow you outside and burn down a pre-roll.
Since it’s the championship game, you should celebrate with something that has a little bit more kick to it. Here are a few infused pre-roll options from some of our favorite cultivators and production labs.
Concentrates For Game Time
The championship football game from start to finish is typically four hours long. This includes all the timeouts, commercial advertising and 30-minute halftime show. Be prepared to buckle in for a long game. That’s why we recommend these concentrates and extracts for your dabbing desires.
Munchies with Milligrams
Big Game parties are known for their hefty food spread of BBQ, hamburgers, hot dogs, snacks, entrees and dessert dishes. Everyone gathers around the television to watch the game while they eat and drink.
Make sure you save some room for your edibles. Deciding on the right edible to potentially enhance your game day experience can be challenging. Here are a few cannabis infused edible options we recommend bringing to your watch party.
If you want your edible to last well past the 3rd quarter, we recommend giving LEVEL Protabs and Hashtabs a try. LEVEL creates unique and targeted effects-based cannabis products by formulating cannabinoids and terpenoids in ratios that are not accessible from the plant alone.
Wyld Gummies are made with real fruit ingredients and natural flavors for authentic, true-to-fruit flavors. Using cannabis extracts blended with unique botanical and fruit terpenes, Wyld crafts their world class flavors with effects and experiences in mind.
Wyld ensures consistent dosing and flavor throughout every batch. Wyld gummies offer a broad range of products incorporating different ratios of THC and minor cannabinoids. This offers consumers an array of high quality experiences which they can select to match their unique goals for cannabis consumption.
Lost Farm Edibles
Lost Farm edibles are strain-specific, plant-based 10mg THC edible gummies and chews infused with 100% live resin. Live resin gives these edibles a distinctively full spectrum, true-to-the-plant-high.
Game Day Vape Cartridges
Even though recreational cannabis is legal, society is still trying to shake the stigma it used to carry. Sometimes you need to be discreet with your consumption at your viewing party. If you find yourself at one of these parties, may we suggest stepping away from the festivities for a time out and taking a pull on one of these vapes. They are a quick and effective way to retune yourself at the Big Game party.
ABX Farmer’s Reserve and Sauce Cartridges feature carefully curated, whole flower cannabis terp sauce. These cartridges are true to flower, 100% cannabis. Top shelf, first in class flavor, aroma and effects, the latest vapes from ABX are next level.
West Coast Cure Cartridges
High-potency and highly effective, West Coast Cure (WCC) cartridges offer a convenient way to unwind discreetly. WCC’s CUREpens and rosin cartridges are a great way to enjoy premium THC oil on the go. With its ceramic-core atomizer and premium dental-grade materials, consumers will enjoy a potent and terpy rush.
710 Labs Rosin Vape Pods
710 Labs celebrates the plant’s naturally produced cannabinoids and flavors in their rosin vape pods. These pods are like taking dabs from a pen. Their vapes are filled with the same quality rosin they have long been known for.
