Start 2023 off on a high note with the ultimate cannabis New Year’s Eve party. 

As legalization efforts around the world increase, cannabis enthusiasts are exploring new forms of canna-entertainment. From cannabis dinner parties to weed-themed pop ups, cannabis celebrations are becoming increasingly fashionable. 

As the year draws to an end, the notorious New Year’s Eve party is on the horizon. And what better way to ring in the New Year tan with a cannabis-themed party this December 31st.  

Although planning such a party may appear to be simple at first, there are various factors to consider. If throwing a regular party can be difficult; make it cannabis-themed, and the game changes completely. 

Read on as we delve into everything you need to host the ultimate cannabis New Year’s Eve party, from who to invite to what munchies to serve to the best strains to serve. 


The most important aspect of throwing any party is deciding on a location and when it comes to hosting a cannabis New Year’s Eve party, it becomes a bit more complicated. Certain venues may not permit cannabis usage and some guests could feel uncomfortable attending a party where cannabis is involved. Here are some tips to consider when choosing the venue for your cannabis New Year’s Eve party: 

  • Do some research and make sure to choose a venue that is cannabis-friendly. You may consider hosting the party at your home, or perhaps a friend or family member who would like to co-host with you. 

  • The venue is also determined by the number of guests expected and the style of décor you intend to utilize. Remember to keep these things in mind when choosing the locaiton of your cannabis New Year’s Eve party. 

  • Because your party will be concentrated on cannabis, it is also advisable to tell your attendees ahead of time. As a result, anyone who may be uncomfortable going can opt out. 


Since you are hosting a cannabis New Year’s Eve party, it is important to careful consider who you want to invite to your party. 

It is critical to invite others who have similar degrees of cannabis experience as you, or who are interested in trying it responsibly. ‘Cannaseurs’ are those who are familiar with cannabis and use it more frequently than other, more casual users.  

Canna-curious people, on the other hand, are relatively new to the cannabis culture and experiment with it less frequently. If you intend to invite canna-curious guests, you may wish to provide modest strains of cannabis to prevent these guests from potentially having a negative experience. 


Being cognizant of everyone’s requirements is a wonderful approach to make your cannabis New Year’s Eve party all-inclusive. Although many people prefer joints, some prefer water pipes or edibles. As a result, having diversity would satisfy everyone. 

Another option to provide diversity is to consider alternatives to cannabis for those guests who may prefer to opt-out of the cannabis-related festivities. Music and fun activities, such as games, will guarantee that your party isn’t just about cannabis, but also about the bonding and joy that can and should happen post-toke.  

Remember that the goal of any party is to bring people together. Having activities that encourage this will encourage your guests to socialize and enjoy one another’s company. 


Nothing like a big, delectable blunt to start a party – especially a cannabis New Year’s Eve party. If your New Year’s Eve party will be attended by a large number of individuals, a joint is a fantastic choice for allowing several people to experience cannabis at the same time.  

You can also save time on all that rolling by visiting your neighborhood dispensary or adult-use cannabis store. Most cannabis dispensaries sell joints or smaller pre-rolled smokes. A variety of joints to get you through the evening is another wonderful option for New Year’s Eve, especially if some of your guests are allergic to the tobacco that comes with smoking a blunt. 

Because a New Year’s Eve party is usually held until at least midnight in order to bring in the new year, choosing a cheerful, cerebral sativa strain is a wise choice – especially in the early evening hours. If everyone at the party smokes dank indica all night, they could be sleepy and ready to fall asleep by the time midnight arrives. 


Another important factor to consider when planning your cannabis New Year’s Eve party is the food you serve. A decent New Year’s Eve celebration, more than most other parties thrown during the year, generally includes a lot of finger-food appetizers to keep attendees going throughout the long evening. And a cannabis New Year’s Eve party? You know the food could make or break the festivities. 

Let’s face it: spending an evening drinking and smoking cannabis may definitely work up an appetite and make you need some snacks. You should prepare some appropriate food items to share with your guests and add to the evening’s gourmet specialties.  

There are various recipes for creating cannabutter online, and, with a sizable quantity of cannabutter on hand, you can prepare a variety of scrumptious infused snacks to serve at your cannabis New Year’s Eve celebration. With an increased surge in the popularity of cooking with cannabis, there is no shortage of cannabis recipes out there. The challenge will not be finding fantastic cannabis-infused appetizer dishes, but rather deciding what to make. 

Dope tip: To keep everyone content and happy, it’s ideal to give a variety of cannabis and non-cannabis-infused foods that can help keep everyone full, happy, and vibrant.  


Serving a range of mocktails at your cannabis New Year’s party is an excellent option if you and your guests aren’t too keen on crossfading. We particularly love these cannabis-infused mocktails and we are sure your guests will love them too. 

Still, if somebody becomes too inebriated at the party, there are plenty of ways you can assist. A fantastic example and helpful strategy to remember is to give them lemonade, which helps relax a person who is feeling a little too buzzed. 


Before the Clock Strikes Midnight 

The following sativa strains are worth considering for a cheerful time in the hours before midnight at your cannabis New Year’s Eve party. They produce a strong, cheerful high that is ideal for social situations. Conversation will flow naturally as partygoers converse. 

Bruce Banner: As the party begins, this sativa-dominant strain will enhance social engagement. This strain’s euphoric, intellectual high will keep partygoers interested and enthusiastic. This strain’s terpenes should delight any cannabis aficionado, with deep tastes of dank sweetness that occasionally have a hint of diesel deliciousness, depending on the cut ingested. 

Durban Poison: This tried-and-true favorite is a pure sativa that will take your party to the next level. This stain, which originated in Durban, South Africa, has become an industry standard in the American cannabis market. The piney sweetness it gives when smoked, mixed with an energizing high, is perfect for this unique night of the year. 

When Midnight Hits 

When the clock strikes midnight and the long evening comes to an end, nothing beats a really delectable indica to bring the party to a close and herald in the new year. Try these strains for the perfect way to round off your cannabis New Year’s party: 

Girl Scout Cookies: GSC produces a more balanced high than some other strains, but what begins as a cerebral high rapidly transforms into a full-body high. The flavor is best characterized as a lovely floral and sweet earthy dankness. 

Granddaddy Purple: This strain has pleasant purple hues that make it highly aesthetically appealing. It’s a heavy hitter, with sleepy indica effects throughout. This strain is an industry standard due to its great visual aesthetics, good taste, and high yield. The delicious taste of grapes and berries make it a crowd favourite. 


After a long night of drinking and/or smoking, your cannabis New Year’s Eve party guests should plan ahead of time how they will get home safely. The last thing you need after a fantastic night of partying is to encounter a sobriety checkpoint on your way home. To conclude the evening on a high note, make sure your guests have a designated driver or use Uber. 

Put these suggestions into action, and you’ll be well on your way to organizing a cannabis New Year’s Eve party that honors all of the memories you’ve made this year. Take a deep breath, inhaling the wonderful things to come, and exhaling the bad. Welcome in the new year with laughter as bright as the cherry in your bowl.
