    West Hollywood Cannabis Businesses Roll Out the Specials for 420 Weed Day

    Saturday, April 20, marked the annual celebration of marijuana culture’s high holiday, 420 Weed Day. It was a day enthusiasts and advocates alike commemorate the plant, and it was an opportunity for cannabis businesses and lounges across the city of West Hollywood to drum up some business by partnering with their vendors and offer discounted prices and an elevated experience to celebrate getting high.

    Zen Healing Dispensary offered mix-and-match specials, games like spin the wheel or cornhole for a chance to win various free prizes throughout the day. They offered free popsicles, coupons for future purchases, and plenty of photo ops, as well as a free session of chair massage. They plan to run other specials leading up to Pride Month in June.

    Off the Charts Cannabis Dispensary offered various deals that ranged from 25 to 30% off select items. They featured local vendors in the store and also offered free manicures.

    The Artist Tree offered various specials, including 50% off top brands in a long menu of items available for 420. There were plenty of photo ops, and they had customers forming a line throughout the day.

    Pleasure Med also offered various deals throughout the day. They partnered with local businesses to sell candles, clothes, coffee, and offered complimentary mini sandwiches courtesy of the Pleasure Chest next door.

    A manager at MedMen expressed gratitude to be open again in West Hollywood. He said the local community was happy to have them back. They also offered various specials to celebrate Weed Day.

    The history of 420 traces back to the 1970s, originating with a group of friends from San Rafael High School in Marin County, California, known as “the Waldos.” Their rendezvous at 4:20 p.m., just after school activities, to search for a rumored marijuana patch sparked the term “420,” which has since become synonymous with cannabis culture.

    The term gained wider popularity through the association with the Grateful Dead, particularly bassist Phil Lesh, and was eventually solidified as a holiday through flyers distributed at Dead concerts in the early 1990s.

    Despite its humble beginnings, 4/20 has evolved into a cultural phenomenon, with enthusiasts worldwide commemorating the day. While the exact origins of the holiday’s widespread adoption remain somewhat mysterious, its enduring popularity underscores its significance within marijuana culture.

    I went to Pleasure Med early afternoon on 4/20. They offered 30% off their high prices. No giveaways unless you bought $250 in product. You would have thought it was just another day in there. There was nobody else in the dispensary when I went.
