The Best Way to Consume Weed During the Holidays

December 20, 2017

People who are used to consuming weed on a regular basis may not be able to make it through the holidays without it. But, you may need to use a different consumption method in order to accommodate your busy holiday schedule. Here are some of the best ways to consume weed during the holidays:


Enjoying an edible is a much more discreet method of consuming cannabis than smoking. Therefore, this is the perfect method of consumption for the holidays if you are going to be surrounded by friends and family members that don’t know you use marijuana. Keep your habit private by sneaking away to enjoy an edible whenever you’re in the mood for marijuana.

If you do plan on enjoying edibles during the holidays, make sure you keep them somewhere safe so family members don’t mistake them for regular food. It’s very easy to confuse a marijuana-infused cookie or brownie with regular sweets, so keep them separate. This is especially important if there are children in the house. See the 10 commandments of marijuana edible safety.


Will you be celebrating the holidays with other people who enjoy marijuana just as much as you do? If so, there’s no better way to celebrate the season than to consume marijuana in a joint or blunt. This is the best way to share the experience of smoking marijuana with all of your loved ones. But, be sure to ask everyone to bring some of their own weed ahead of time so you don’t end up using all of the weed in your stash.


Many people smoke cannabis to relieve general aches and pains, but if smoking isn’t an option during the holidays, turn to a topical product instead. A topical product can be used to treat pain in specific areas of the body. Because these products look just like regular lotions and creams, no one will ever know that you’re using cannabis.

CBD Pill

Anyone who only uses cannabis to manage pain should consider trying CBD pills in addition to topical creams. These are just as discreet as topical products, but they can be taken orally instead of applied directly to the skin. Since these products do not produce a psychoactive high, there’s no need to worry about what you will say or do in front of your loved ones.


If no one in your family smokes but they don’t mind if you do, vaping may be the best consumption method for the holidays. This way, you can still get the feel of smoking marijuana without making other non-smokers around you uncomfortable by lighting up a blunt. Plus, vaping does not produce a distinct marijuana smell, so you don’t have to worry about being a bad houseguest.
