Thanksgiving is supposed to be a time of good food, good company, and the expression of gratitude.

But for some, it ends up being the opposite: between stressful travel schedules and keeping the peace with family, sometimes you need to enlist the help of friends. 

We like to rely on and extra dose of plant allies during this time to stay calm, cool and collected during potentially turbulent political discussions and overly-inquisitive relationship queries.

The easiest, most discrete options are tincutres and edibles. 

For those looking to induce euphoric, mind-altering states, we enjoy Eden's Cure Pure THC Tincture, offering 10mgs of THC per dropper. You can easily mix this in with your morning smoothie or simply let it sit under your tongue. If you prefer the more clear-headed approach, Lord Jones High CBD Pain and Wellness Tincture is your go-to, formulated with pure, simple, and effective ingredients. Medicate with Dr. B-Well's CBD or Mackenzie Medicinal's CBD and THC options. So many choices, so little time!

As far as edibles are concerned, you really can't go wrong with our selection! No matter your tolerance or cravings, we've got something for everyone. Savor some delicious post-turkey treats with Ganja Goddess brownies and gingerbread, or Liquid Gold's infused pumpkin-spice chocolate. If being basic is wrong, we don't want to be right!

Take the guess-work out of edibles with our Ganja Goddess oil and butter. If you're the one in charge of food prep, roll up your sleeves and cook up a storm, infusing potatoes, stuffing, and pumpkin pie for your cannabis-friendly folks. Then, share a post-meal joint and balance the high with a CBD-rich pre-roll from Verdant Valley!

May we also suggest meditation? We love partaking in some herb and spending even 10 minutes on a meditation through the Insight Timer app. Plus, it's free! Take a moment in the hustle and bustle of the Turkey roasting and Black-Friday hysteria to truly express gratitude - that's what this time is all about, after all!

Here's to hoping you have a bearable - and maybe even enjoyable? - Thanksgiving, whether you're spending that with family, loved ones, or even at work!
