Guide to Green Wednesday deals, Black Friday sales, and more
Black Friday emerged as an American shopping holiday in the 1950’s when people started taking the day after Thanksgiving to go shopping. With so many people perusing shops for gift ideas, stores started running specials. Over the years, it has become an all-out war for exceptionally discounted televisions, game consoles, and more–and sometimes people get too agro.
The cannabis industry has been celebrating this holiday in its own way, and obviously, it’s a little more chill. Companies celebrate Green Wednesday with sales instead, helping cousins stock up on “walk” supplies the day before Thanksgiving rather than after. There are also brands extending sales from Green Wednesday through the weekend, and some with specials already running.
Whether you’re at the dispensary or looking to pick up some accessories online, here are the latest specials in cannabis for America’s favorite shopping holiday.
