Published November 15, 2021

The end of the year is chock full of holidays, and so is cannabis. Of course, you have 4/20, but you also have Dab Day (7/10), CBD Day (8/8), Delta-8 Day (12/8), and probably many other “cannabis days.”

So what is Green Wednesday?

That's what we're going to answer in this blog post. And you can also bet that at Hometown Hero, we'll have a special bundle at a great discount for this year's Green Wednesday!

We're going to cover:

  • What is Green Wednesday?

  • Where does the Green Wednesday term come from?

  • What to expect from Green Wednesday

Plus, if you're more of a "try before you buy" kind of person, we'll also show you where you can get FREE edibles (hemp-derived Delta-9 and Delta-8) to test out for yourself.

Let's dive right in!

What is Green Wednesday?

In short, Green Wednesday is the day before Thanksgiving, when cannabis enthusiasts stock up for the long weekend.

So why do people build up a stash before Thanksgiving?

The real question is...why wouldn't they?

Thanksgiving is probably the perfect holiday (besides 4/20 and the others) to enjoy Delta-8 and hemp-derived Delta-9 THC.

Having a bit of hemp-derived Delta-9 before the meal, such as Select Spectrum or Live Rosin, can give you a greater appreciation for the Thanksgiving staples.

Plus, a bit of unwinding can help break the ice between you and family members at the table (especially if they partake as well).

And let's not forget—you can infuse food with hemp-derived THC!

Delta-8 flower and Delta-8 tinctures are especially good for this reason. You can use flower to make cannabutter, which can have a variety of applications. With tinctures, you can pretty much turn just about anything into an edible with a few drops.

Our Natural Flavored Delta-8 Tincture can pair well with savory items such as gravy, turkey, stuffing, and mashed potatoes. And for topping off dessert, you might want to go with our berry or mint flavors.

Just make sure that if you make edibles for Thanksgiving, make sure they're clearly labeled as such and kept out of the reach of children.

And finally, Thanksgiving is a wonderful time to get reconnected with family. Still, another major reason why people stock up is...it can all be a bit overwhelming.

With travel arrangements, figuring out who is bringing what to the meal, and Black Friday shopping, things can get a bit hectic around this time of year.

But with some hemp-derived THC, relaxation is just a bite, a puff, or a drop away.

Where Does the Green Wednesday Term Come From?

So why do people call it Green Wednesday?

The term "Green Wednesday" was first coined back in 2016 when many dispensaries noticed a significant uptick in cannabis sales on the Wednesday before Thanksgiving.

Pretty much, it was a social phenomenon with a name attached to it.

Because other shopping holidays occur around the same time, such as Black Friday and Cyber Monday, it only felt appropriate to call it "Green Wednesday."

What to Expect From Green Wednesday

We're not going to give too many details just yet. But for Green Wednesday, Hometown Hero will offer a hemp-derived Delta-9 THC bundle at a great discount. And the best part of this?

It's legal in all 50 states!

How?

Green Wednesday may have started at marijuana dispensaries. However, the 2018 Farm Bill legalized hemp on a federal level and states followed suit, leading to widespread access to legal THC across the United States.

Some states have legalized recreational marijuana, Delta-8 is available in most states, but people can buy hemp-derived Delta-9 THC from sea to shining sea.

When Delta-9 is hemp-derived and appears in a concentration at or below 0.3% on a dry weight basis, it's legally compliant. The cannabinoid can range from 300mg with our Select Spectrum Cocoa Squares to 10mg in our Select Spectrum Gummies while remaining at 0.3% threshold.

But in general, you can expect a lot of discounts on Green Wednesday. However, this year's Green Wednesday might be the biggest yet because hemp-derived Delta-9 THC is legal in all 50 states.

Plus, you may not even need to leave the house for Green Wednesday this year. Since hemp is federally legal, it can be bought online with credit or debit and shipped across state lines to your front doorstep!

Free Hemp-derived Delta-9 and Delta-8 Samples

We promised that we'd show you how to get free samples of Delta-8 and Delta-9 from hemp, and now, we'll deliver.

Because at Hometown Hero, we understand that a Thanksgiving weekend stash is a serious investment to spark up some holiday cheer.

For Delta-8 enthusiasts, we offer two of our High Times Hemp Cup-winning Blueberry Delta-8 Gummies.

And if you're curious about hemp-derived Delta-9 THC (or live in a state where you can't get Delta-8), you're more than welcome to try two of our Mango Select Spectrum Gummies.

These free Delta-8 and hemp-derived Delta-9 samples are available to first-time customers 21 and up. And all you have to cover is the shipping cost (no more than $6.00).

Green Wednesday is the Cannabis Black Friday

So that pretty much wraps things up as far as Green Wednesday goes!

It's pretty much the Black Friday of cannabis. And this year's Green Wednesday might be the biggest yet because of the development of hemp-derived Delta-9 THC.

But here's the most important thing to remember during this time of the year.

Sure, there's the food, the traveling, the shopping, and of course, the cannabis. But most of all, don't forget to take a moment to be grateful and spend some quality time with your family.

At Hometown Hometown, gratitude isn't just a holiday thing, but it's something that we practice every day. No matter the time of the year, we donate a portion of proceeds from every product sold to nonprofits that help U.S. veterans in need.

These organizations include:

  • The Disabled American Veterans

  • Soldiers' Angels

  • Veterans of Foreign Wars

  • Operation Finally Home

From benefits advocacy to building free custom homes for veterans and their families, the work of these nonprofits is nothing short of amazing.

To all U.S. veterans, we cannot thank you enough for the sacrifices you've made for this country, and we are forever grateful.

And to everyone out there, from all of us at Hometown Hero, have a happy Thanksgiving!
