Dinner parties, a social ritual of the ages that bring together friends of old and new to enjoy a great meal and great company. While there are many brilliant tips out there on how to throw a fabulous dinner party, when you add cannabis to said party, your guests are truly in for a night of delight, creativity, and stimulating conversation.

The first decision you’ll need to make is choosing between cooking with cannabis or keeping the meal un-infused. You can offer infused dishes in each course by adding cannabis oil to the recipes. This gets your guests royally lit. Or you offer cannabis to accompany the meal. This allows them to choose their own level of elevation.

A Dinner Party With Cannabis Is A Fun And Delicious Experience

For timing purposes, you’ll want to keep in mind that eating cannabis does take longer to kick in, and it also provides a more potent experience. This is due to the delta-9 THC (what most refer to as THC) passing through the digestive system. This is where it’s then converted into 11-hydroxy-THC, prior to passing through the blood-brain barrier. Once it crosses the blood-brain barrier, it is far more potent. It creates a more intense experience than the unconverted THC. Fun party trivia right there!

If you know your guests have a high tolerance, then a fully infused meal is likely the way to go. If your guests have lower tolerances or typically prefer to be in full control of their THC dosages, keep the dishes cannabis-free. Instead, offer joints and/or precisely dosed elegant edibles such as Nové. This also minimizes the big OOPS of over-consumption, something the host and guests alike can appreciate.

Now that you have all this in mind, here are 5 ways to include Nové cannabis chocolates at your next dinner party.

  1. Create an artistic arrangement of Nové on a beautiful serving dish and offer them to your guests upon arrival. This sets the tone for the night and gives them an opportunity to dose themselves early on, allowing the full effects to set in during the peak of the dinner party.
  2. Package each piece in its own small ornate gift bag labeled with each guest’s name. Display them creatively on an entry table with a decorative sign or tabletop chalkboard instructing them to find theirs, open it, set an intention for the evening, then eat it slowly as they get settled in.
  3. Another way to offer the named gift bags from #3 is to use them as seat markers. When your guests are seated have everyone open them together, set a group intention. Then eat them all at the same time. Make a ceremony out of it!
  4. Incorporate the chocolates into a decadent homemade dessert. Ideas include vanilla ice cream in fancy glasses, topped with a piece of Nové. Or add a bit more luxury with a petit four and Nové chocolate arrangement, served with tea or espresso. A slam-dunk!
  5. Be an extra fabulous host by gifting each guest some Nové to take home to savor in the comfort of their own home. Who doesn’t like a goody bag after a dinner party, especially when it’s luxurious cannabis chocolate?

However, you choose to include Nové cannabis chocolates at your next dinner party, just have fun and let us know how it all goes!
