Seven Tips for Creating Your Own Cannabis-Themed Dinner

5. BYOW (Bring Your Own Weed)
What's a marijuana-themed soirée without the bud? Remind your guests to bring their own weed, because providing cannabis for events (private or otherwise) is a grey area under Colorado law. Mason Jar partnered with Sweet Leaf dispensary for the dinner, providing guests with two strain samples and rolling papers.

"I always want to be your grandma's favorite dispensary," says Nichole West of Sweet Leaf.

We think your grandma would have to be pretty baller to smoke with you, much less walk into a dispensary herself, but if you have one who would, more power to you. If grandma's invited, she should also bring her own.

If you want to really impress your guests, order a few Weekender cases for them to transport their weed. Created by Jane West, this plastic compact is a big step up from your usual plastic bag or dispensary canister and has compartments for up to five different varieties of weed.

6. Finish With Decadent Dessert
BlueKudu provided marijuana-infused black-cherry dark chocolate for dessert. BlueKudu offers nine types of chocolate to choose from, so you're sure to find a flavor that will fit perfectly with the rest of your meal.

7. Send Friends Home With Goodie Bags

Partnering with Anonymous Bags allowed guests to take their remaining bud home in a locked bag. The bags cannot be unzipped without a key, keeping your marijuana away from children and pets. The bags are also made with an opaque fabric that's engineered to help obscure the scent of the contents.

If you wish to attend future Mason Jar Event Group seasonal dinners, reservations can be made online. A fall dinner will be on October 2. For more pictures of the Summer Seasonal Dinner, see our complete slideshow.
