And May the Fourth be with you!
That’s right, the special Star Wars holiday – not the Star Wars Holiday Special – (thankfully) is here once again. And with the recent addition of the Mandalorian canon, we have an excuse to celebrate Star Wars all month long; after all, “This is the May.”
What better way to spend a twelfth of the year than sitting back, roasting a few bowls in Star Wars-themed glassware, and dissecting the many plot holes and physical impossibilities present in the latest films of the franchise.
But remember to pace yourself; the Fourth may be with you, but a nasty hangover is the ultimate Revenge of the Fifth. Luckily, if you keep to the herb rather than indulging in some Corellian ale, you can largely avoid the effects associated with the Dark Side of the Force.
In the wise words of Master Yoda:
Here are some handpicked Star Wars-related cannabis memes, gear, and strains to kick off the season!
Darth Maul Bowl Piece
If you didn’t think Darth Maul could be more menacing… Meet the Maul bowl piece and downstem.
Storz & Bickel Mighty+
The Storz & Bickel Mighty+ is an excellent dry herb vaporizer option featured in Cannabis & Tech Today’s Most Innovative Products for 4/20. Of course, it’s also the perfect purchase for May the Fourth. I call mine Darth Vapor…
R2D2 Mini Bong
Just what every household needs: A see-through R2D2 to smoke your weed through.
This wookie pipe shows us what a Chewie-Jabba hybrid would look like.
Apparently, there are plenty of growers who are Star Wars fans, as the number of strains that reference the franchise continues to grow faster than Disney’s expanded universe. Here are a few of the best strains guaranteed to transport you to a galaxy far, far away:
1. Death Star
This Indica dominant strain is a hybrid made from Sour Diesel and Sensei Star. Rest assured, this battle station is quite operational, but not complete without the accompanying grinder:
2. Skywalker OG
This strain is a cross of Mazar, Blueberry, and OG Kush. A perfect balance between Indica and Sativa, the Dark Side and the Light Side, Luke Skywalker would approve of this Force-balancing strain.
3. Darth Vader OG
“You don’t know the power of the Dark Side.” Well, you will have a working knowledge of the power of the Dark Side of the Force after sampling this classic strain. Darth Vader OG is an Indica hybrid cross of San Fernando Valley OG and Larry OG. It has a fruity profile and is high in myrcene.
Whether you are re-watching the new Obi-Wan Kenobi trailer for the fourteenth time, or relaxing with a classic novel from the Star Wars Expanded Universe (I recommend the Darth Bane trilogy), you now have the tools to celebrate the tradition in true Cannabis Connoisseur fashion.
