It’s the best time of the year again: spring has sprung, the flowers are blooming, the weather is warming up, and 4/20 is right around the corner. For fans of cannabis, it’s time to rejoice and indulge in one of life’s simplest pleasures.
But of course, this day isn’t like any other, and you want to celebrate accordingly by doing something special to honor the almighty Mary Jane. So to help you make the absolute most of 4/20 this year, here are some ideas for fun ways to spend the day. Try one or try them all!
Make a Blanket Fort
The first and most important way to celebrate 4/20 is by lighting up and enjoying some good ol’ marijuana. If there’s any day to revel in the smell and taste of weed, it’s today, so why not get cozy in a homemade blanket fort, hit your bong, and enjoy a nice, old-fashioned hot box?
Of course, you could do it the usual way in a car, but you’ll probably have much more fun in a fortress of blankets, pillows, and stuffed animals. Not only is it an activity that you’ll probably enjoy doing while high, but you’ll also be able to cuddle up in your fort for the rest of your day, maybe even while trying out some of the other suggestions on this list.

Have a Munchie Feast
From Thanksgiving turkey to Halloween candy to Easter chocolate eggs, all holidays have a food component and 4/20 shouldn’t be any different. After all, there’s no better way to enjoy food than after a smoke sesh. While you may typically indulge your munchies with a pizza delivery or some chips, why not go all out for 4/20 by having a full-on feast? Plan to order in your favorite foods or even double the fun by cooking with some marijuana butter. You’ll be very happy when you get to reap the rewards of planning ahead of time.
Vibe to Some Music
The same way that people will listen to Christmas music for the entire month (or let’s be honest, even more) leading up to Christmas, we’re for setting the tone for 4/20 by getting together a playlist of good marijuana music with solid vibes. Listen to it ahead of the holiday to get yourself properly stoked and then, on 4/20 itself, you can toke up, lay back, and enjoy the tunes.
What makes for a good 4/20 playlist, you ask? Here are just a few suggestions.
- Sean Paul
- Snoop Dogg
- Bob Marley
- Willie Nelson
- Pink Floyd
- Grateful Dead
- Jimmy Hendrix
- Because I Got High – Afroman
- Mary Jane – Rick James
- I Got 5 On It – Luniz
- Smoke Two Joints – Sublime
- Pass the Kouchie – Mighty Diamonds
- James Joint – Rihanna
- How High – Method Man and Redman
- Young, Wild & Free – Wiz Khalifa & Snoop Dogg ft. Bruno Mars
Or, if you’re feeling lazy, just look up a 4/20 playlist on Spotify. You’ll be sure to find some good ones.
Have a Film Festival
If you want to take the media enjoyment from one dimension into two, you might be into having a film festival. The good news is that there is no shortage of stoner films to choose from that will have you laughing all day. So bust out the popcorn, get comfortable on the couch, draw the curtains, and see how many of the following films you’ll be able to get through in one sitting:
- Cheech and Chong: Up in Smoke
- Harold and Kumar Go to White Castle
- Pineapple Express
- Half Baked
- This is the End
- The Big Lebowski
- Dude, Where’s My Car?
- Reefer Madness
- Fast Times at Ridgemont High
- Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure
Enjoy the Great Outdoors
Okay so, so far, all of our suggestions have involved getting cozy at home and relaxing to the ultimate max. But what if you’re the type who likes to get up and moving when you’re high? If that’s you, why not get out into nature to thank our Earth Mother for the gift of marijuana, and all of those other pretty plants and clouds and flowers, too?
Maybe you’ll want to just lay out in your backyard and gaze at the clouds or the stars. Or maybe you’re into going on a full-on hike and really communing with nature. Or perhaps you’re from one of those cities where 4/20 turns into a block party with so many people smoking it up together outside that a veritable haze of weed smoke settles over the entire town.
From picnics to free outdoor concerts and festivals, there’s no shortage of ways you can enjoy the outdoors on 4/20, especially if you’re lucky enough to be from a province where the weather is starting to allow for it.
However you choose to celebrate, we here at Bongs Canada want to help you have the time of your life by offering some killer 420 deals. Check us out and stock up now so you’ll be ready come April 20th.
