The Essential Guide to Pairing Cannabis and Seattle Seahawks Football

By in Entertainment

It’s hard to beat Seahawks Season — aka “Autumn”! There are few things that rival catching a game a home game at CenturyLink. But, even if you’ve got to watch the game with your buds at home, or at a friends place, some good kush or a tasty edible will complement the game like few things can.

Sure, beer may persist as football’s go-to social lubricant, but for those of us lucky enough to live in a legal “rec” state, we have a few more options. For your Hawks viewing pleasure, we’ve put together the essential guide to help you get the most out what will sure be another exciting season! Go Hawks!

First off, let’s start with a few tips:

Make Your Fantasy Picks Well Before Game Time

There’s nothing worse than trying to make decisions last minute when you’ve got plenty of other things to prepare for. And, let’s face it! Fantasy football can be a little complicated, particularly if you’ve already imbibed with a little kush. So make your picks several hours prior to kick-off, while making sure you’ve set your best picks in place so that last minute changes don’t leave you scrambling. When in doubt, opt for players younger than 30 since older players are more prone to surprise you with a game-day announcement that they’ll be riding pine due to injury.

Stock Up Before the Game

There’s nothing worse than running out of gear in the middle of a game. And, of course, dispensary hours can vary. So it’s better to be safe than sorry. Stock up on your essentials prior to kick-off! You’ll likely want to mix it up with some tasty edibles and a couple of your favorite strains.

Prepare Some Tasty Treats

If you’re a “cannasseur” who knows how to cook, put your culinary skills to work and infuse some of those succulent burgers with a little kush or maybe prepare some Bloody Mary with a dash of Durban Poison. If you’re not inclined to cook — no worries — we’ve got you covered. See our recommendations below.

Arrange for Transportation Ahead of Time

Obviously, there’s no need to risk it. You don’t need the ticket; or worse, an accident. There’s no bigger buzz kill than getting a ticket for driving under the influence. And, remember, testing tools are far from perfect, so even if you haven’t consumed for hours and are aren’t buzzed, you could still trigger a reading showing you’re over the threshold. Trust us. Play it safe, and getting your transportation in order ahead of time. And with Uber, there’s no excuse not to!

Now that we’ve got that out of the way, here are a few ideas for some of the best edibles and strains to pair with the game:
