April 20 is 420, a slang term created in 1971 by a group of friends, known as the Waldos, who would often get together to consume cannabis around the time of 4:20pm. This term later grew in popularity within cannabis culture. High Times featured a mention of 4:20 smoking in May 1991 and a 4/20 holiday later emerged.

Analytical Cannabis wanted to mark the day by sharing some of our favourite cannabis content in bite-sized segments, for you to digest now or savour for later.

We hope you enjoy consuming these pieces and let us know if any of them hit it with you.

*(pardon the puns) Happy 420.
