It’s that time of year again, smoke shop lovers – and once again, COVID-19 has put an end to the perfect party plans we’d dreamed about in quarantine. We’d all hoped that the pandemic would have ended by now for so many reasons, both big and small. From crucial concerns for our loved ones health and safety to fleeting irritation from an itchy mask, it’s been a uniquely difficult year in more ways than we could count. Health-conscious individuals everywhere have collectively done everything in our power to slow the curve in our communities with a significant spike in the choice to work remotely, attend school virtually and shop at online stores from home whenever possible. These adaptations have all helped us to continue building enriching lives and make ends meet while minimizing our impact on public health. We’ve also seen a surge in virtual events and creative ways to stay connected with friends and family through remote forms of socialization. Vaccines are slowly being distributed throughout the United States via a tiered system which prioritizes access to those with higher health risks and essential workers. Smoke shop lovers far and wide had hoped to safely share a bowl with friends in person for 4/20 with the ongoing pandemic far behind us. Thankfully, there’s no need for social distancing to keep you and your vape-puffing loved ones to keep you from celebrating 4/20 safely. Last year, our smoke shop team suggested five fun ways to spend 4/20 at home. Want to enjoy livestreamed events or activities for 4/20 instead?

Where 420 Began
The term 420 has been well known around the world for decades as the symbol for marijuana. How this term was coined has several different origin stories from it being the police code for pot, to some kind of symbolism for Hitler’s birthday, or for being teatime in Holland. However, none of these stories are actually true. It was coined by a small group of teenagers in the 70s.
