Stars, Stripes, and THC


 The Fourth of July, also known as Independence Day, marks the annual anniversary when the 13 colonies adopted the Declaration of Independence, written by Thomas Jefferson in 1776. On this day, Americans decorate their homes and businesses in red, white, and blue, mirroring the stars and stripes of the nation's flag. Red symbolizes hardiness and valor, white symbolizes purity and innocence, and blue represents vigilance, perseverance, and justice.

People gather around smoking barbecue pits and lay out on blankets for picnics, watching parades and concerts, public showings of patriotic movies, and sporting events, waiting for the sun to set before setting off fireworks. Fireworks gained their popularity and association with the holiday in Philadelphia on July 4, 1777, when a ship's cannon fired a 13-gun salute honoring the 13 colonies during the first organized celebration of Independence Day.

Hemp use has been gaining popularity, especially in recent years due to legislative changes, particularly around celebrations like the 4th of July. Interestingly, both the Fourth of July and hemp have deep roots in American history. The first American flag was made from hemp fibers, hemp crops played a crucial role in the development of the states' agricultural community, and in 1619, hemp was even used as legal tender in certain states. There are many reasons why people are incorporating hemp into their celebrations and daily lives. Aside from its wellness properties, such as pain relief and easing anxiety symptoms, hemp is known to provide feelings of relaxation and euphoria. It can also enhance experiences like listening to music and enjoying visual effects, such as fireworks.

Safe & Responsibility

 Like alcohol, which is also popular at celebrations, hemp has its own safety measures to practice. It's important to be extra careful when mixing hemp and alcohol, as hemp can intensify the effects of alcohol, so it's best to go low and slow. Hemp products with high or isolated levels of THC can impair your reaction time and judgment, affecting your depth perception and making it harder to gauge distances. When smoking, keep your area well-ventilated and keep an eye on your ashtray and any stray embers. Remember that hemp's effects, especially the intoxicating effects of THC, can last for hours. It's best to refrain from driving while still feeling these effects. Driving high is just as dangerous as driving drunk and can result in a DUI, which is costly and can impact your life for years.

Savor the 4th

Aside from sparking up a hemp pre-roll in your lawn chair, edibles are a popular choice for celebrations. Smoking isn't always acceptable at all locations, and not everyone in your group may be a smoker, making edibles the preferred option for occasions like the 4th of July. What could be more American than enjoying a decadent brownie while celebrating one of the most patriotic holidays? The Fourth brings plenty of opportunities to enjoy edibles, from parades and concerts in the park to BBQs and firework shows. Visit to ensure your favorite edibles are present at your festivities. With our vast product selection, it's easy to find the perfect edible for any occasion.

Four-Legged Friends

While the Fourth of July may be enjoyable for us, the celebration can trigger anxiety and stress in our furry friends. From the morning parade to the afternoon lake barbecue, these events can be overwhelming for pets. Fireworks, in particular, are a major trigger for cats and dogs, as they perceive the noise as a danger and may try to escape. Whether you plan to bring your pet to the festivities or leave them at home, it's important to ensure they have a good time too.

Consider trying Sherpa’s pet treats. These delightful bone-shaped treats come in three mouth-watering flavors: Chicken, Bacon, and Steak. Each treat is packed with 25mg of calming goodness to help your furry friend stay cool during the festivities.

However you choose to celebrate America’s victories, and the triumphs of hemp this 4th of July do it with Sherpa edibles.
