3Leaf’s Guide to a Perfect Thanksgiving Weekend

November 15, 2018

4 min read

We still can’t believe that it’s almost Thanksgiving. It feels like it was January 1st only a moment ago, and the legalization of adult-use of cannabis in California had just begun. But months have passed and so much has happened. And now, as we begin to look back and take stock of this year, we realize there is so much for us to be thankful for. To name a few: we added 3Leaf Fruit Jellies to our lineup of healthy, natural edibles – and we have two more additions on the way; we’ve partnered with over 80 retailers across California, and we’re steadily adding to that list; we were a part of some amazing events; and, we’ve been able to connect with so many inspiring people who continue to motivate us in our pursuit to craft delicious, effective, and safe edibles.


While it’s important to look back and reflect on what we are thankful for, we also have a long weekend to prepare for! There are turkeys to cook, guest bedrooms to make-up, trails to hike, and football games to watch. 3Leaf can add to each element of your long weekend; moreover, we can help make them even more enjoyable.


Cook an Epic Turkey Dinner


Everybody has their own way to cook a turkey dinner. Your grandma still cooks the turkey until it’s dry, and your vegan brother finally perfected his mashed potato recipe – who needs real butter? Not us! But this year, it’s your turn to impress. Don’t panic! There’s still time to prepare before the big day. Once it arrives and your guests start to show up, keep 3Leaf close by. You can discreetly enjoy a delicious tasting snack that doesn’t taste or smell like cannabis whatsoever. And, the effects of the THC distillate infused in each edible will help you stay uplifted and energized all day. Edibles take between 30 and 60 minutes to take effect, but they can last for up to 8 hours.


The key to maintaining the balancing act of cooking and entertaining is a micro- or low-dose of THC. Micro-dosing with cannabis has been linked to an increase in the ability to focus and a decrease in anxiety. Start with a small amount and be sure to wait before consuming more. The effects you experience depend on many factors, from how much water you’ve had to how much you weigh, so low and slow is the best approach, especially for novice consumers. Enjoy one 3Leaf Quinoa Granola Bite or Coconut Oatmeal Cookie in the morning as you’re prepping the food, and as dinner gets underway, you can always have another. Our edibles will not only add to the delicious flavors of the meal you cooked, but they also make a great alternative to a glass of wine. They’ll allow you to slip into relaxed conversations and truly enjoy your time with your family, and you don’t have to worry about a hangover in the morning.


Conquer a Hike


Being in nature is good for our health and well-being. It reduces the production of stress hormones, lowers blood pressure, increases feelings of positivity, and gives us a sense of peace and balance. Cannabis is the perfect complement to the benefits of nature. Its healing and medicinal compounds are naturally produced within the cannabis plant. So, don’t stay stuck inside all weekend. Grab a friend and a package of 3Leaf and check out some of our favorite trails:

Sit Back, Relax, and Watch Some Football


Picture this: your aunts, uncles, in-laws, siblings, nieces, and nephews have all left, you’re on the couch in your sweat pants and your team’s jersey, you have control of the remote, and your favorite snacks are less than an arm’s reach away. But, you’re still wound up from hosting. You need something to relax you and help your muscles recover after that hike. 3Leaf’s new Fruit Jellies are the perfect solution. Our Strawberry jellies contain a micro-dose of THC, and our Blood Orange jellies contain a low-dose of THC. They’ll provide you with the medicinal benefits of cannabis without an overwhelming psychoactive high. You’ll be absolutely relaxed and perfectly capable of focusing on the game. Moreover, our Fruit Jellies are non-filling and contain less than 10 calories per piece, so you can save more room for your favorite snacks. They’ll make the perfect addition to your NFL Sunday.


From our team at 3Leaf, we wish you a Happy Thanksgiving!
