Celebrating St. Patrick’s Day with Weed
13 Sep 2019
People have different takes on St. Patrick’s Day. For some folks, it’s a Christian holiday and the symbol of luck, while others see it as an opportunity to learn about the beautiful Irish culture. Then there’s the third group – namely people for whom St. Patty’s Day is just another perfect excuse to get wasted with no remorse.
During St. Patrick’s Day celebrations, people take to the streets in cities around the world to cherish their Irish heritage. People go all green, Guinness flows abundantly and thus, just like I said, some guys get inevitably very drunk.
The boozy vibe accompanying the green holiday is something people got accustomed to a long time ago. However, as a recent study by the National of Health concluded, the social risk associated with alcohol use is far more dangerous than other recreational drugs or cannabis. I mean, people are becoming more aware of dangers posed by alcohol, but the vast majority still stick to their pint glass instead of trying something safer, or even better, something that comes with plenty of health benefits.
So this might be the perfect way to change up your normal St. Patrick’s Day celebrations this year. Because it’s better to go really green for the first time and celebrate the holiday with weed.

With the legalization of cannabis gaining pace in the US, Canada and other weed-friendly countries, people have finally learned that there is a safer alternative to alcohol when it comes to celebrating special days.
As recent research suggests, more and more people are turning to weed to enjoy their recreational piece of green luck, especially women, who are keen on drinking less alcohol in general.
Nonetheless, it doesn’t mean that you must abandon the idea of getting a bit tipsy with your favorite beverages on St. Patrick’s Day. As some stoners say, a well-crafted beer and a matching weed strain can be a perfect example of enjoying the luck of the Irish.
To be more specific, if you’re a true connoisseur, you’re going to have a great time trying your beer with different cannabis varieties. Then you can personally match the perfume bouquet of each other to indulge yourself in a sensual experience.
Finally, every day is a good day to smoke weed. So why not celebrate St. Patrick’s Day with your friends and a tightly packed bong?

Pairing Weed Strains with Beer for Saint Patrick’s Day

Pairing weed with beer for your St. Patrick’s Day celebration can be very entertaining given that you know the terpene and flavonoid profile of both your strains and booze. If you enjoy an occasional brew or two with your blunt, let me bring some badass beer and cannabis pairings to the table.
Stouts specifically bring out the flavors in food. So it goes without saying that they will enhance the flavors in cannabis. With their chocolaty-coffee flavors and nutty undertones, stouts are a perfect fit for creamy, sweet weed strains with earthy and pine notes. Good examples are Lemon Jack or Golden Spruce.
This blend between IPAs and pilsners provides a wide range of citrus, pine and lemon flavors with a clean and smooth touch. Because pale ale is quite bitter, it requires a delicate accent of sweet, cheesy notes that can be found in strains in Cheese or Blue Cheese.
If you’re the one with thrills for the pils, you’re going to enjoy your weed and beer pairing. Pilsners are invaluable for drawing the best out of sweet and fruity strains. It’s like a touch of salt on a steak, bringing the cannabeer experience to another dimension and bringing out the crispness of the beer. Look for such weed strains as Lemon Jack or Orange Cookies.
Porters come with a slightly chocolaty flavor accompanied with a bold yet creamy finish. Such flavor profiles with dark complexions and velvety notes makes porters the perfect match for strains like sour and sweet strains like Sour Grape or Blue Mango.
IPAs characteristically have high levels of hops and a stiff alcohol content when compared to lighter types of beer. Their deep flavor and bitter, earthy undertones pair particularly well with sweet and spicy strains that have a mild finish. Got some IPAs in your fridge? You’d better go for some Girl Scout Cookies, Jack Flash or Green Candy.
