420 Day

Today, cannabis users across the globe will be lighting up to celebrate 420.

The annual event is observed as a means of celebrating marijuana use, while also campaigning for it to become legalised in parts of the world where it is prohibited.

Here’s everything you need to know about 420.

What is it?
420 is an annual event taking place on 20 April (the date is 20/4 or in the American date format 4/20), in celebration of cannabis.

While 420 is widely used in common vernacular in reference to the date of the event, it also relates to the origin of the observance, the history of which can be traced back to the early 1970s in California.

How can you celebrate 420?

Rockford has a couple of dispensaries in the area.

Here’s how people typically generalize the potential effects of each:

Indica

  • Relaxing
  • “In-da-couch”
  • Sleep aid
  • Recommended for nighttime use

Sativa

  • Uplifting
  • “Heady”
  • Energizing
  • Recommended for daytime use

*Note: Individual results may vary.

Hybrids

Hybrid cannabis strains are a mix of indica and sativa genetics that offer a balanced experience. Hybrids can be categorized even further as indica-leaning or sativa-leaning, as some blends have stronger characteristics one way or the other.

 

Indica and Sativa. What do they mean?

The words come from the latin names given to the subspecies of the cannabis plant, Cannabis Indica and Cannabis Sativa. Let’s break down a few of the main differences between the two.

 

Cannabis Indica

  • Varieties of cannabis originating in mountainous regions
  • Short, bushy stature
  • Large, thick leaves
  • Shorter flowering cycle

 

Cannabis Sativa

  • Varieties of cannabis originating in tropical regions
  • Tall, skinny stature
  • Long, thin leaves
  • Longer flowering cycle
