In anticipation of Thanksgiving revelry and anxiety induced by family gatherings, consumers stock up on cannabis

Dubbed “Green Wednesday” by the cannabis industry, the day before Thanksgiving (November 24th) reflects adult marijuana consumers’ desire to have a little something extra in their pantries in anticipation of family gatherings. The name, a play on November’s larger retail shopping days Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, and Cyber Monday, originated between 2016-2017 in legal marketplaces looking to incentivize cannabis consumers. In the U.S., sales on Green Wednesday are second in line to 4/20 for the highest cannabis sales of the entire year. 2020 was no exception. Even with all the safety restrictions in place last year due to Covid-19, cannabis companies across the country reported substantial Green Wednesday spikes in 2020’s sales. Marijuana Business Daily reported a sales increase of 63% across the four largest adult-use markets—California, Colorado, Nevada, and Washington—last year, totaling $17.6 million in sales. We’ve rounded up some standout products you might want to pick up from your local dispensary this Green Wednesday to ensure a relaxed and stress-free Thanksgiving.

What to expect: What do you reach for when you need more than just Tums after a heavy meal? Much has been said lately about the importance of gut health to the overall immune system, including heart and brain health, improved mood, healthy sleep, and effective digestion—all of which can help prevent some cancers and autoimmune diseases. EPC’S GI Support 8:1 Tincture promotes optimal gastrointestinal function—targeting symptoms of gastrointestinal distress, including pain, nausea, and lack of appetite. If you have trouble eating, reach for this magic in a bottle day or night. Use the tincture daily with a few drops of the tasty essential oils under the tongue—think peppermint, ginger, and fennel. Enjoy improved digestion, less heartburn and an overall non-psychoactive boost relieving stress, anxiety, and depression. This product has a predetermined cannabinoid ratio designed to support the gastrointestinal system—a balanced potion of solventless distillate oil, CBD isolate, MCT oil and organic terpenes carry the effect. Add to food, beverages, and other edibles or cannabis products with the included dropper for accuracy.
