How to Celebrate 420 Ultimate Guide

Every April 20th, stoners from around the world get together to celebrate the plant we all know and love: Mary Jane. 4/20 is a holiday that comes around once a year so, it's only right to celebrate with a re-up at the dispo and a fat smoke sesh that would make Cheech & Chong proud. However, there are tons of other fun stoner activities that you can partake in between bong rips this holiday. Let's dive into the history of 420, how it all started, and our expert tips on how to celebrate 420 in 2024!

What is 420?

"420" is a code word commonly used to refer to the consumption of cannabis. It is also associated with the time 4:20 and the date April 20th, a day of celebration for cannabis culture that is now an internationally recognized holiday. Once a discreet means of connection among stoners, "420" now unites people from diverse backgrounds, transcending stigmas and fostering camaraderie among cannabis enthusiasts worldwide!

How Did 420 Start?

Today, 420 is an international holiday for smoking marijuana but, let's talk about how it all started. Back in the ’70s, weed was becoming an extremely popular after-school activity. It actually became such an honored after-school tradition for five high schoolers in San Rafael, California known as "The Waldos," that they started to meet up every day at precisely 4:20. This was the birth of the term and the start of a movement from stoner to stoner as an underground code for getting baked, igniting a cultural phenomenon.

What to Do on 420: Best 420 Activities

No matter if this is your first 420 or you are a seasoned cannabis connoisseur, figuring out how to celebrate 420 right can be a challenge. This guide will help you prepare with epic things to do on 4/20 so you can have the best day ever!

Clean Your Gear for Takeoff

Spring cleaning isn’t just for your house! If you can’t remember the last time you cleaned your favorite smoking utensil, it's seriously time to prep your gear before the big day. We suggest ordering some Ooze Resolution Gel Glass Cleaner and deep cleaning your pieces for the most important sesh of the year. Planning on using your vape on 420 too? Grab some Ooze Resolution Micro Swabs which are pre-soaked with alcohol to get stubborn build-up and resin out of the tightest crevices in your vape devices. After you're done cleaning, you and your smoking buddies will be so happy every time you take a clean hit!

Hit the Dispo & Restock Your Secret Stash

It's a no-brainer that you should start preparing for 420 by hitting the dispensary and pick up some fun new strains. If you aren’t sure what you are looking for and want to try something new, read our Top 5 Strains for 420 Month blog to find the perfect one for your unique preferences. We also recommend checking Weedmaps to find the best 420 deals in your area.

Host a 420 Party

Don’t forget to hit the dispo for some pre-rolls to hand out to your guests during the festivities!
