We are nearing the highest holiday and it's time to celebrate and decompress. And while other holidays and cultural events inspire rage in the form of partying, weed people are uniquely social creatures who don't party quite the same.
Since 4/20 falls on a Saturday this year, why not take a day to unwind and really locate your chill? Luckily for you, Weedmaps News prepared a methodical guide so you can have the most lit and lazy 4/20 ever. So buckle into your couch and enjoy the high.
Secure Your Supply
First things first, you need weed to get this homebody party poppin' by supplying your stash with a healthy amount of weed.
Score a Deal
Your 4/20 dank shouldn't break the bank. Whether looking for flower, concentrate, cartridges, edibles, or topicals, find an awesome deal on Weedmaps. It's also worth noting there will be an influx of deals to take advantage of since for many retailers 420 racks in more dough than any other day.
Plan Ahead and Order
The absolute worst thing that could happen on 4/20 is ending up empty handed, so don't let that be you. Secure your weed by ordering ahead online and scheduling a pickup or delivery.
Homebody Party for the Lit and Hazy
You've got your goods all lined up, now it's time to kick it into high-gear while applying the least amount of effort possible. Here's our list of low effort activities and fun movies, shows, and even compilations to enjoy while high.
The Stoner Leagues
Cannabis competitions or goofy games, here's a list of contests, card, and board games, some weed-related, others not. Best of all, everyone's a winner when it ends with getting higher.
Joint and Blunt Rolling Challenge
Man vs machine, homie vs homie, the showdown for who can roll up quickest joint can manifest in many forms. And who can roll the best Backwoods blunt in the least amount of time? This can even be a solo competition as a race against the clock, to see if you can achieve a new personal best record.
Smoking Hot Beauty Contest
Find out who can roll the prettiest blunt or joint. Adorn it with twaxing, roll it in kief, or do something cool with the rolling paper. Then enter your contestant in a homespun beauty contest where you and your friends are the judges. Vote for your favorite and the winner gets to start the sesh.
'Two Truths and A Lie'
“Two Truths And A Lie” is a beloved drinking game that can easily sub in tokes for chugs. The rules are simple. Make three statements about yourself, two of which are true and one that is made up. Each player makes a guess and those that guessed wrong take a hit. If everyone playing guesses correctly, the person who made the three statements takes a rip instead.
Set up and played just like traditional Beer Pong except when someone makes it, the other team has to take a rip from a bong. Set up a table with either sixor 10 of identical cups lined up in a pyramid (1-2-3 for six cups or 1-2-3-4 for 10 cups) on opposite ends. Get two teams of two people to line up behind each end of the table and take turns attempting to shoot a pingpong ball into the other team's cup. Whenever a player lands a shot, the other team removes that cup after the round is complete and takes a rip for the loss. First team to wipe out all of the cups wins.
Choose your marble. They race, they swim, they battle it out in the ring — marblelympics tests the boundaries of spherical glass accomplishments. The videos are also downright mesmerizing, especially while faded. Sometimes, the marbles get ratchet and start fighting in the stands. But no matter what, you and your stoney crew will love placing bets on who will be the last marble standing.
'Cards Against Humanity'
If you want to exercise your potty mouth and dark comedy break out the iconic black box of “Cards Against Humanity.” The publishers even made a Weed Pack, so you can sprinkle relatable prompts into the deck.
There's more than one way to put active cannabinoids in food, you can get as complicated or straightforward as you want.
Once weed is infused in one of your staple ingredients, anything you make can become an edible. If you use a dry-herb vaporizer, the leftover cannabinoids in pre-vaped weed can be infused into oil or butter. Otherwise, you can also follow these recipes for infused coconut oil or butter. If you have kief you can infuse basic ingredients such as seasoning, coconut milk, flour, honey, or broth.
Quick and Easy
If you like to save your stems, you have the makings for a quite potent cannabis tea. Complement your cozy vibe with any tea you like mixed with weed stems (and some extra shake if you want to get extra stoned), and a binding agent of your choice.

Take a Weed Bath
C'mon, you know you want to. If you have the luxury of a bathtub you are doing yourself a disservice if you don't semi-regularly get stoned in it. Soak in weed, wash with weed, or toke it up while bathing — there are so many ways to absorb cannabinoids in the tub.
Bath Bombs That Are Fire
Weed-infused bath bombs are all the rage. You can find them in a variety of doses, blends of essential oils, and cannabinoids (usually THC, CBD, or both). Kush Queen offers myriad bath bombs formulated to aim for a desired effect. If you're feeling crafty, consider making your own cannabis bath bomb as seen in our DIY Weed Spa article.
Then top it off with an infused moisturizer to leave your skin supple and soaked in cannabis. Papa and Barkley Body Oil is perfect for a post-bath massage or to simply lather in weed luxury. Or sink into your sweet side with Honey Pot's infused body lotion; each 8 ounce bottle packs 1,000 milligrams of THC.
