420 Handbook Part V

May 17, 2022

This month, the month of April, arguably the best month because it includes a pothead’s favorite holiday, 420, this blog has brought you the 420 Handbook. It has explored the different myths surrounding the now famous (or infamous) 420 holiday and given you the most widely agreed upon origin story behind the celebration, that of The Waldos and their quest to find a hidden crop of marijuana plants in the forests of California. It has also given you a varied list of activities and celebrations happening for April 20. And, as always, it has suggested the finest dispensary in Colorado, Denver’s Altitude Dispensary, for all of your cannabis needs.

For our last installment of the 420 Handbook we aim to bring you a hodgepodge of 420 related tidbits, facts and jokes. Starting with my favorite joke or bumper sticker—“It’s 4:19. Got a minute?” Get it? Because in one more minute it will be 4:20 and we will get to smoke. I use this little joke whenever I happen to look at a clock and it happens to be 4:19 (this happens surprisingly often, even more often than catching 11:11.) Hopefully there will be friends around me who I can use it on, but even if there isn’t, I will say it under my breath and then hope that I’m somewhere near my pot and somewhere I can actually smoke (not at work.) Because one should never miss an opportunity to celebrate 420—the time or the date.

Next up, puns! I love a good pun and man are there a lot when it comes to 420 and cannabis in general. Here is my favorite, “it’s 420 somewhere”- kind of like that song by Alan Jackson and Jimmy Buffett- It’s Five O’Clock Somewhere. Meaning it’s ok or acceptable to drink because somewhere out there, it is five o’clock and work is done, so we can go ahead and get lit.

And then, we would like to leave you with a few fun facts about Colorado and cannabis. For example, did you know that there are more dispensaries in Denver than there are Starbucks coffee shops? Twice as many in fact. Whoa! But, regardless of how many dispensaries are out there, Denver’s Altitude Dispensary is still your best bet for all the fine cannabis products you are looking for. They will have all that you need to celebrate 420 in style.

Or, did you know how many jobs have been created in Colorado since the legalization of Marijuana? Over 50,000! This includes all sorts of jobs including: farming, retail, and construction. Or, did you know that there are training programs that budtenders can take to learn as much as they can about the products they are selling you? In this way can can be as informed as possible and answer any questions you may have.

This concludes our month long blogs of your 420 Handbook. I hope you found it helpful and fun. And, now you know! And knowing is half the battle. For all your cannabis needs and for the best, most knowledgeable, and friendly budtenders, go to Denver’s Altitude Dispensary.
