Happy New Year, happy toking!

I don’t drink alcohol unless it’s a rare event; I prefer cannabis. It’s more and more common these days to find people putting down the beverages to favor lighting up or munching down.

Making this choice can take some navigating and New Years Eve has its own set of challenges. If you are ringing in the New Year with Mother Nature, be aware, avoid these stoner risks and party on with confidence!

Risk #1 – staying up till midnight and beyond

If you are going to make it tonight you cannot over saturate your system and burn out before you even get out of your house. I will not be among the people doing this as I will likely smoke indica strains early and be in bed by 9:30pm. But if I had to stay up on New Year’s Eve, I’d follow this dosing plan like instructions I needed to live.

Before 6pm  

  • No edibles
  • If you mainly dab – sativa dabs only, no blossom
  • If you mostly smoke flower, sativa flower only, no dabs


  • Eat your first plant based edible like a cannabutter cookie (you need it to take some time to digest)
  • You may now begin smoking any sativa dominant hybrid breeds but stick to your favorite method of inhalation


  • Begin mixing your favorite method of inhalation, sticking to sativa strains. Giving your system a different plant profile will likely make a more noticible social anxiety stinks ensuring you are satisfied in ripping in a new 365.


  • Eat some concentrate based edibles that you have – favor candies and gummies that digest quickly and easily

    Indica will set you “in da sofa ” and that sofa is looking pretty comfortable right about now. Wait just a little bit longer…


  • Time for a good, thick indica to take this night to a different degree
  • For the remainder of the night, your motto is now, “smoke em if you got em”.

Stoner Danger #2 –  Social Stress

This is a tough one because you should be smoking mainly sativa today and sometimes that makes it worse. Or, you smoke something that gets you stoned and paranoid, you begin to think that you are acting awkwardly. It’s a vicious, downward spiral. The one thing you can do is trust that everyone around you will either be going to be too stoned to care or concerned about precisely the same thing. Just chill out and fire another.

Between the lack of alcohol to lubricate the situation and threat #2, the midnight kiss on New Year’s eve can be extremely uncomfortable with no plan. Think ahead and when in doubt, be confident and commit when using one of these alternate options:

  • A pet – give your first kiss into a lovable furry friend and rejoice in the complete some joy

Note – don’t be one of the people that strikes a dog on the mouth because it’s gnarly and grosson New Year’s Eve.

  • A friend – Have you ever known a couple with an anniversary on New Year’s Eve? This clearly depends on who your friend is but this is a excellent opportunity if you use it well!
  • A photo – You know that folded up photo from the time you and your ex met Jason Momoa? The one that has been in your pocket for 2 decades? Tonight it’s socially acceptable to kiss that picture.

You’ve been smoking weed all night and will most likely overlook this. As you should be quite baked by now, you might not understand that your breath is likely more filthy than the winds wafting through Dante’s seven circles of hell. Get gum ahead of time and pucker up.

Whether you are staying in or going out, all of the staff here at The Cannabis Life Network would like to wish you a safe and very Happy New Years! Best wishes to you and your loved ones and good luck in 2019!
