4/20 Party Essentials: How to Create the Perfect Smoke Sesh

The only way to make 4/20 better? By celebrating with a 4/20 party! Create some fun invitations or send out a text blast to all of your friends and start prepping for the ultimate 4/20 bash. 

Creating a great 4/20 party is about more than just the cannabis. We’ve got you covered with all of the essentials to make your party unforgettable and perfect for your crowd.  

4/20 Party Essentials: How to Create the Perfect Smoke Sesh


Snacks are an essential part of any party, but at a 4/20 celebration where at least one person is guaranteed to get the major munchies? They might be the most important thing on this list! 

When picking food for your party, make sure that you keep in mind the specifics of your guests. If anyone might have dietary preferences or needs like being vegan or gluten-free, keep some options available so that no one feels left out!

You can also have a lot of fun picking out snacks based on the vibe that you want to cultivate. Also, certain foods contain natural terpenes that may enhance your high if eaten before or during your cannabis consumption. Maybe you want to go for a classic late night junk food experience with pizza and chips, or you could pick a cuisine like Thai and order takeout. The world is your oyster! 


Though the smoke is obviously the center of any 4/20 party, don’t forget the drinks! That includes both alcoholic and non alcoholic beverages. Some people love to drink when they smoke, and others do not so much. In addition to alcoholic drinks, you can offer soda, zero-proof cocktails, and of course, water. Staying hydrated can help prevent a green-out — and will combat any cotton mouth you may experience.

Not sure what to buy or don’t want to spend a whole bunch on alcohol? You can also make your party a BYOB event so that everyone can bring their favorite drink to share! 


A great party is about more than just great food and drinks. Set the tone with some tunes! Music can totally change the atmosphere of an event, so you can make a playlist ahead of time with your faves. 

Use the music to create a vibe that’s mellow or high-energy, honor a specific artist or decade, or try a mix so that there’s something for everyone. People might also want to play DJ or request some of their own favorite songs, and this can be super fun, too!

Lucky for you, the Veriheal team has crafted the perfect 4/20 playlist for your smoke sesh:


You don’t need to rely on the music or the smoking to keep people entertained. Having some games available can make any party more engaging, and it can work as an icebreaker for your guests! 

Get your game console set up with some multiplayer party games like Mario Kart, or create a dance competition with Just Dance or Dance Dance Revolution. 

Don’t have a gaming console or just want to keep things a bit more grounded? There are so many fun board games and card games to play, ranging from the classics like Taboo to newer games like Cards Against Humanity or We’re Not Really Strangers.  

Movies and TV

Games aren’t the only way to keep your guests entertained—why not try a 4/20 movie night or TV marathon? 

Put a crowd pleasing film on or binge a reality show. You can make things fun by asking guests to vote ahead of time, or you can pick one of your faves and surprise everyone!


An extra theme besides 4/20 is totally optional, but it can be an exciting way to entice your guests and to help guide all of your decorating, food, and entertainment. 

Themes can be anything: a decade, a color, a TV show or movie. You can get super creative! Feel free to ask guests to come in costume, too. 


Finally, if there’s one thing that you have to have at a 4/20 party, it’s the cannabis! 

You can have a variety of ways for people to get their smoke on. Offer blunts, different pipes, a few bowls, or even a vaporizer. 

In addition to smoking, you can also serve up edibles or fun cannabis products like THC sodas. Ultimately, you’re in total control of how you want your guests to enjoy the party, and how much you’d like to budget.

Get Partying!

No matter how you choose to customize your party, your guests will feel the love and appreciate the opportunity to celebrate together. 

Happy 4/20!
