Halloween 2020 will be like no other. #Halloween@Home! Trapped inside, our kids will trick or treat at home this year, for likely the first time in history. Yippee! My munchkins, specifically, will get to knock on each door in our home and scream, “trick or treat!” Mommy or daddy will then answer the door and run some sort of silly, strategic interference at each stop so that the other parent can run to and ‘mask up’ behind door number’s 3, 4, 5 and 6, and so on.
This is totally my wife.
Halloween tricks of any kind require extreme creativity and advance planning. Customizing each room, in our case, takes work. As is the trend with this pandemic mode we live in, everything we do to compensate for being quarantined is kind of exhausting, even if you don’t have kids. Do you feel me? If you, like me, want to relax your body and mind with a bit of herb this Freak Night, then Herb’s got you covered.
First of all, Canna West Seattle is stocked and selling everything in the store at a 20% discount today and an even deeper 25% discount tomorrow, Halloween. That is the kind of discount you only earn after earning hundreds of rewards points at most dispensaries! Secondly, are you looking to take your dollar the furthest at this sale? Here are a couple of recommendations, but don’t just take it from me. Talk to the ‘tenders at Canna West, as they are the best in the west.
Want to Party All Night?
Bondi Farms – Super Silver Lemon Haze (sativa): an 1/8th of this tasty, energetic and uplifting bud will run you $40 at Canna West, but then a ¼-oz is just $55 and a half ounce is just $100. With Bondi, buying in bulk is a huge savings. Now subtract 25% from that $100 and your half-ounce of locally grown, hand-watered and pesticide free Silver Lemon Haze works out to just $75. What?!
Want to Turn Up the Heat?
Weed Snobs – Do-Si-Do (indica): not quite as huge of a savings as with Bondi when buying bulk, but still, there’s savings. ⅛ oz of Do-Si-Do, which is known to encourage the electric boogaloo in the right company, costs $40 and a ¼ oz is just $75, before the Halloween discount. If you want a preview, take a look at this. That’s hot, right?
Want to Forget Your Name?
Boggy Boon – Ice Cream Cake (indica): this stuff is 25% THC, there is a Yeti involved and you might just want to lay it down and forget about it all after smoking the Ice Cream Cake. Pricing pre-sale is dope – you do the math, but an ⅛ oz is typically $37 and a ¼ oz $71.
Maybe you are a DIY’er?
If so, here’s a killer recipe for a vegan, Green Punkin Mousse, from the famous Mary J White, West Seattle’s top THC and CBD chef! Eat this and you can decide what happens afterwards!
VEGAN GREEN PUMPKIN MOUSSE
To serve two people pumpkin mousse, you’ll need the following:
6 oz. nut or soy milk yogurt
1 C. pumpkin puree
1 Tb. pumpkin pie spice
½ tsp. salt
2 Tb. brown sugar
1 Tb. cannabis tincture, either glycerin or oil based; if you don’t make your own, try Green Revolution Avocado Oil tincture – great stuff
2 Tb. sliced toasted almonds (use a nut that matches your yogurt; almond w/almond, coconut w/coconut, etc.)
In a medium bowl, mix the pumpkin, spice, salt, sugar, and tincture. Depending on the sweetness of your yogurt you can adjust the sugar proportions here; I like to use brown sugar as it gives the mix more body. Now get two cute glasses and start layering. Do yogurt, pumpkin, nuts, yogurt, pumpkin, nuts, and end with the nuts. You can use other nuts or seeds, or crumble your fave GF cookies in there – as long as you have some crunch, otherwise you’re just eating fun orange baby food. Chill these until service and plan on smiles!
