Fall is here. Finally. After an extremely hot summer lasting well into the changing of the Colorado aspens, we have hit the night time chills. With the fall and the coming winter, there is one thing guaranteed to be on almost everyone’s mind: the holidays! Whether you love them or you hate them, the holidays are right around the corner, and they impact us all in some form or another. Whether we are involved in them or not, it is pretty hard to avoid these events. Many people have a different reaction to the holidays based on who they are. Some people love Christmas music, and others hate it. Some people hate family gathers where other people are counting down the days till their family’s annual event. It changes depending on who you are talking to and their individual experience. No matter what your opinion or perceptions of holidays are, they are always going to come around. And the other piece to remember is this: while the holidays have to happen, we can always have fun with them.
There are a few pieces that seem to unify all holidays during this season. Spending money and eating an exorbitant amount of food. In America, we like to stuff our faces, and we like to buy new things. With the holiday season, there are plenty of opportunities for shopping and for eating. We spend money and gain weight around this time of year. In this vein of thought, there is something we wanted to talk about in The Ganja Gazette: something we are calling “The Stoner’s Guide to the Holidays”.
We want to cover quite a few different types of topics concerning the holidays and how these might impact you. Specifically, we wanted to focus on these ideas of materialism and gluttony, but we also wanted to talk a little bit about the relationships you might be managing when you are returning home, and there are parts of the world where you might have to talk about pot with your loved ones.
A few of the stories we are covering in this issue include:
How to Talk to Your Loved Ones About Your Smoking Habits
To Smoke or Not to Smoke: When to Consume
The Stoner’s Guide to Thanksgiving
The Stoner’s Holiday Shopping Guide
Whether you are looking to incorporate marijuana into your normal family-friendly vacation or want to know a little bit more about how you can include pot in your Thanksgiving feast, we have you covered. We want you to enjoy your holidays and make the most out of your time with your loved ones and cannabis. From finding the perfect gift for that special stoner in your life to having a kick-ass meal with the friends you love while enjoying the freedom of homemade edibles. From puffing all the way to the passing of the joint or the next helping of pumpkin pie, we know how complicated the holidays can be; let us take the stress off your back.
We are also proud to introduce some new articles in this issue as well as expanding some of the existing articles we have. Ultimately, with the holidays fast approaching, we know you are busy, and so are we. Thanks for taking the time to read this month’s issue of The Gazette and please, stay in touch, we are excited for what you think.
And, as always, in the spirit of the holidays we are thankful you are our readers, thankful you are giving us your attention and thankful we have your time. Thanks for all you do. We love what you are giving us!
