We will cover the best deals on Delta-8 and hemp-derived Delta-9 THC so that you're not left with seeds and stems this 4/20.
Plus, if this is your first 4/20 (welcome to the cannabis community), we'll also give you a rundown on the history behind the holiday.
To kick things off, let's start with hemp-derivedDelta-9.
After all, it is the most well-known form of THC out there.
Many people refer to Delta-9 as simply "THC."
With relatively recent developments in the hemp industry, manufacturers can deliver legal, Farm Bill-compliant Delta-9 THC experiences to cannabis enthusiasts.
And the best part?
Delta-9, when derived from hemp and at or below a concentration of 0.3% by dry weight, is...legal in all 50 states.
Yes, all 50. And you can throw Washington D.C. and Puerto Rico under this umbrella too.
So, where can you find the best Delta-9 deals for this 4/20?
Well, we can only speak for ourselves on this one.
At Hometown Hero, we always have a sale on 4/20 and even a few sales leading up to that one.
So keep your eyes peeled and look for deals on your favorite Live Rosin, Select Spectrum, and hemp-derived Delta-9 products
Delta-9 is a classic and beloved cannabinoid. But with the 2018 Farm Bill, a “newcomer” has risen to prominence in the cannabis community—Delta-8.
Delta-8 is not subject to any concentration by dry weight limits (as of this writing) on a federal level and in many states.
Without a concentration, limit is why you can find Delta-8 in many different mediums such as:
You can surely bet that you can find a good 420 Delta 8 sale at Hometown Hero.
And we may have a Delta 8 420 sale leading up before the holiday, or maybe even some new products.
So that pretty much covers the best deals on widely legal tetrahydrocannabinol for the most quintessential cannabis holidays.
We still have to be a bit hush on the details, but you can bet that Hometown Hero will have a 420 sale.
Now let's talk more about the holiday.
Alrighty, for all you newcomers, consider this your briefing.
What exactly is 420?
420 is a holiday celebrated every April 20th(4/20)
In general, it's a celebration of cannabis itself by enjoying cannabis with fellow enthusia
There's no "wrong way" to go about this holiday.
The classic method is to meet up with some of your best cannabis buddies at 4:20 pm on 4/20 in a circle and spark up a joint (though you may want to refrain from passing it because...you know).
However, there are also other ways people enjoy the holiday.
Some enthusiasts like to spark up at midnight, and some of the more hardcore connoisseurs will get up early and partake at 4:20 am.
And others just enjoy cannabis throughout the entire day, watching movies, listening to music, and hitting up their favorite smoke spots.
Plus, due to the popularity of this joyous holiday, there will probably be many local events with live music or other attractions to attend.
So, the best way to enjoy 4/20 is to enjoy some cannabis with friends!
Just don't drive, and although things are opening back up, please refrain from passing around joints, blunts, or pipes.
So, where did the cannabis holiday of cannabis holidays begin?
420's origin was in a thick cloud of smoke for many years.
Some say that "420" is a code among police for "marijuana smoking in progress."
And then you have some who claim that 4:20 pm is teatime in Holland.
Well, let's set the record straight.
The term "420" originated from a group of friends who called themselves "The Waldos" at San Rafael High School in the 1970s.
In 1971, The Waldos caught word that a U.S. Coastguardsman had a secret cannabis growing operation in the Point Reyes Forest but could no longer tend to his crop.
The Waldos set out to find this green goldmine. So once a week, the friends would meet after school by the Louis Pasteur statue on campus at4:20 pmto smoke cannabis and begin their search for the hidden crop.
To remind each other about the search, The Waldos would use the phrase "420-Louis," which they shortened to just "420."
But that doesn't explain how the term and holiday came to prominence.
The phrase "420" became popularized due to The Waldos having various connections to a famous band with quite a following.
The Grateful Dead.
One of The Waldo's fathers managed the band's real estate, and one of their older brothers was friends with the bassist Phil Lesh and helped manage a Dead sideband.
Their use of the term "420" as a code for cannabis or smoking spread among Dead Heads.
It wasn't uncommon for someone to say, "Hey 420" while passing around a joint.
But it wasn't until the early 1990s that the term 420 and the holiday itself grew to global significance.
The holiday and term reached greater heights when High Times reporter Steven Bloom encountered the phrase "420" in Oakland, California.
It was from a flyer advertising an event. At this event, people would meet at 4:20 on 4/20 to do some "420ing." It also told the story of The Waldos.
When the story spread through High Times, everyone from cannabis enthusiasts to legislators knew the number, whose mention brings out so many smiles of fondness.
Yes, out of all the ways to consume cannabis on 420, one stands out as the best.
What is it?
The best consumption method on 4/20 is whatever way is your favorite, and to enjoy it with friends!
Some people prefer flower, others like edibles, and some like tinctures.
So enjoy whatever floats your boat, and don't worry about gatekeepers telling you that you need to do this or that for this special occasion.
And if it's your first 4/20, welcome aboard!
Just check your state and local laws about which types of cannabis products you can purchase.
So puff, bite, drip, or whatever away and enjoy the festivities.
And from all of us at Hometown Hero, have fun, be safe, and happy 420!
