Yes, we’re going to have Black Friday specials, and I mean, why not? We do everything else that a regular retail shop does, from providing coupons to giving birthday specials, so who says we can’t run a Black Friday special or two? And we’re not the only ones because quite a few of our vendors have agreed to run specials with us, but of course, since this is the cannabis industry, many of them are calling the day after Thanksgiving “Green Friday.”
At first, I thought is was a bit cheesy and cliché, but now, I kind of like it. The “Black” in “Black Friday” connotes a dark day of misery, fighting the lines in department stores just to scoop up “deals” in a frenzy of consumerism, and that’s not what cannabis is about. It’s about enjoying the plant and the relaxation in can provide, it’s about community and natural relief, it’s about honoring our roots and reveling in the fact that prohibition is over. But we must be realistic and admit that we’re a retail operation, plain and simple, which goes hand-in-hand with specials, which is a truth that’s spreading across the nation. Actually, did you know that residents in Michigan will be able to buy recreational marijuana starting December 1st? They’ve joined the team, and they’ll get to walk the line between consumerism and the holistic nature of marijuana just like the rest of us, which is exciting.
I just hope they remember what it’s all about, because we got where we are today thanks to the community and culture that surrounds cannabis, and an easy way to do that is to embrace the cheesiness and call the day “Green Friday.” But regardless of what you call it, the deals we’re running that day are simply spectacular, and I promise that the day after Thanksgiving will be a fun one in our Durango dispensary. The people in our lines will be much happier than the ones standing in line at Walmart, because nothing at that “super store” gets you high. But I digress; let’s get into our specials:
1.) I put together a spectacular gift basket (making marijuana gift baskets might be my calling), and we’re going to have a no-purchase-necessary drawing. So, even if you planned on staying home on Black Friday just like you would during the zombie apocalypse, I’d recommend coming into our shop and dropping your name in the basket, because it doesn’t cost a thing.
2.) Just because it’s Black Friday doesn’t mean that we’re going to put our regular November Deals on hold, so you’ll still be able to pick up two Binske Gummies for $40, or two ABV Disposable Vape Pens for $60.
3.) And we’re still going to honor our regular Friday Deal as well even though we have a ton of other specials, so if you spend $50 before tax, we’ll sell you a one-gram joint for $1.
4.) Dixie has joined in the fun, so on the 29th, you’ll be able to take advantage of a “buy one, get on half-off (BOGOHO?) with all the Dixie gummies, mints, and straight-up milk chocolates.
5.) We’re running a 30% off deal on Altus Tablets, and frankly, this product is awesome. The Altus tablets come in either Sativa or Indica, they’re as discrete as an edible gets, the shelf life is long if you don’t consume regularly, and each pack of tablets provides 100mg THC for only $16.80. This deal is bonkers (I hope that didn’t make me sound like a used car salesman).
6.) We’re running another BOGOHO deal on Sweet CO2 Cartridges and Syringes. This means you’ll be able to scoop up two locally produced 500mg carts for $60, and if you were paying attention, you’ll realize that taking advantage of this deal alone will get you a $1 joint, which is also bonkers.
7.) This deal is a good one because it starts on Black Friday, but it won’t stop until supplies run out: if you buy any two Stillwater products, you can snag a Ripple Relief or a box of Honey Lavender gummies for $1. Yes, that’s one dollar.
8.) And lastly, all our Green Cross products will be 30% off, which is huge. This deal applies to all sorts of edibles including the CannaPunch drinks, Highly Edible gummies (which are vegan), and the Stroopwafels from Dutch Girl (which come in caramel or strawberry, and I can’t stop eating these things), and the Nordic Goddess Salve and Wrangler Relief.
Man… this is the first time I’ve written down all our deals at once, and looking at the list, it seems a bit crazy, but then again, that’s what Black (or Green) Friday is about, right? We’re offering savings on everything from drinks, edibles, salves, vapes, and flower, so no matter how you like to consume, we’ve got you covered. Just remember to acknowledge how special it is to be able to buy marijuana legally while you’re rolling in the savings. Either way, even on Black Friday, We’re Your Best Buds!
Please remember that discounts and deals cannot be combined.
