April 20, 2022 at 16:32
Dank Cannabis Dispensary has announced that it is busy getting ready to deal with the surge of cannabis orders that are most likely to come in time for “420”, the unofficial marijuana smokers’ holiday that is observed every year on April 20. Readers can find out more about the Calgary cannabis dispensary by heading over to its website at the link: www.dank.ca.
A spokesperson for the dispensary talks about its preparations for the day of celebrations by saying, “Our goal is to ensure that every Dank Cannabis customer in Calgary who wants to have a fun time on the highest holiday of the year can get the herbs, edibles, and accessories they need to make it a day to remember. This year will be the first time we celebrate the holiday while also offering online sales and home delivery of marijuana products to Calgary residents. Alberta only recently allowed the online sale of marijuana by private retailers when it passed Bill 80, the Red Tape Reduction Implementation Act of 2021. Dank Cannabis was one was the first dispensaries in Calgary to take advantage of this and offer online sales of its entire inventory as well as home deliveries for residents in the city. This 420 will be the first time that our system will be truly tested due to the overwhelming demand that we generally experience on the holiday. This is why we are focusing on getting our website, ordering system, and delivery capabilities running smoothly at maximum capacity to ensure that no one has to miss out on partaking in the yearly celebration based around this wonderful medicinal and recreational herb.”
Dank Cannabis offers marijuana products in a range of categories including flower buds, pre-rolls, vapes, concentrates, edibles, drinks, cannabidiols, accessories, seeds, and topicals. Readers who want to browse the whole menu can head over to its website or visit their Dover dispensary location in person to talk to its dedicated staff members who can help them pick out the perfect strain of marijuana products for their needs.
The origins of the significance of the number 420 in cannabis culture grew organically after a group of five high school students, who nicknamed themselves the “Waldos”, engaged in a playful hunt to try to find an abandoned cannabis crop based on an alleged treasure map that had clues left by the grower. They decided to meet up every day at 4:20 PM on the grounds of San Rafael High School in San Rafael, California to find the elusive treasure. Though they never found what they were looking for, the code name for their plan “420” soon became synonymous with cannabis culture after Steven Hager of the High Times, one of the most influential cannabis magazines at the time and to this day, highlighted their story. The popularity of the term was also helped in part by its use by Grateful Dead fans and soon 4:20 PM became the socially accepted time of the day to smoke cannabis. The term also played a huge role in propping up the social protest movements over the years that ultimately led to the use of cannabis becoming mainstream and its eventual legalization. It was akin to an underground rallying cry that had a huge impact on getting people united behind a cause that they cared about.
Dank Cannabis’s spokesperson elaborates on the cultural importance of the holiday by saying, “Ever since marijuana was labeled as a poison and criminalized in the early twentieth century, many lives have been lost behind prison walls due to rampant incarceration. The holiday, as it stands today, is an acknowledgment of the struggle that countless people have gone through to give us the privilege to enjoy the benefits of this miracle herb. We celebrate 420 today to honor their sacrifice and to change the perception of the world on the subject.”
