8 Holiday Activities in LA That Are 10x Better When You’re Stoned

Here’s How to Get in the Holiday Spirit (Without the Spirits)

The holidays in sunny Los Angeles are a special time to be soaking up the SoCal sun. While the season is often filled with loads of wholesome fun and time with friends and family, we know that it can also be a real drain on one’s social battery. Whether it’s hitting the bars with all your hometown friends or attending your co-worker’s wild annual Christmas party, the social hustle and bustle of the holiday season often leaves participants living from hangover to hangover. Cann, however, is here to help. As the pioneers of THC- and CBD-infused tonics, these delicious drinks are an excellent alcohol alternative, allowing you to maintain a light, social buzz without having to nurse a hangover the next day. Read on to see how we put these innovative new beverages to the test under the twinkling holiday lights in the city of stars. Holiday Events Los Angeles

 

1 | An Enchanting Stroll

Enchanted Forest of Light at Descanso Gardens

Drink This: Grapefruit Rosemary

The Enchanted Forest of Light at the gorgeous Descanso Gardens is must-see for those looking to spice up their holiday outings. Crack open a Cann of delicious Grapefruit Rosemary and take a stroll through an ancient forest illuminated by several dazzling exhibits and art installations. Our buzz lasted throughout the entire duration of our one-mile stroll, giving us plenty of time to walk, talk and take in the scenery while enjoying the spectacular displays.

2 | Sippin’ and Skatin’

LA Kings Holiday Ice Skating at LA Live

Drink This: Blood Orange Cardamom

Our next stop was a fan-favorite of tourists and locals alike: ice skating on the LA Kings’ home ice at the Staples Center. This timeless tradition is the perfect excuse to throw on your winter coat and hit the ice. We brought along a six-pack of Cann’s Blood Orange Cardamom tonics to help elevate our experience without compromising our ability to balance and skate with style. This activity had us giggling the entire time, as we enjoyed the spectacular sensation of gliding atop one of the world’s most iconic ice rinks.

For one of the nation’s most popular holiday displays of lights and decor, we opted for one of Cann’s THC-exclusive tonics to help elevate the experience to new heights. Holiday Road offers up a spectacular showcase of massive gingerbread houses, 10-foot candy canes, thousands of twinkling lights and visits from some of your favorite holiday heroes. The event had us completely mesmerized, soaking up all the holiday cheer oozing from each and every stop along the Holiday Road.

4 | ‘Tis the Season for Sports

LA Rams Game at SoFi Stadium

Drink This: Cranberry Sage 4 Pack

In an effort to break free from the typical traditions that come with the holidays, we opted to experience a different winter spectacle: NFL football courtesy of the Los Angeles Rams. Located in the heart of LA is the gorgeous new SoFi Stadium, home of both the Rams and Chargers. However, given that football Sundays fall right before busy Mondays, we were beyond stoked to have packed our cooler full of Cranberry Sage Canns. We got to experience the thrill of watching Sunday night football in all its glory while still sparing ourselves from a nasty Monday morning hangover.

 

5 | Movies and Merriment

For many, Christmas classics such as Elf, How the Grinch Stole Christmas and Home Alone are staples during the holiday season. However, we decided to up the ante this year by enjoying these fan favorites with views of the DTLA skyline at Rooftop Cinema Club. While our neighbors sparingly sipped cocktails, we broke out Cann’s exclusive seasonal flavor, Yuzu Elderflower Reserve, to help complement the scenery and cinema. The experience was nothing short of magical, leaving us wondering how enjoying our favorite holiday films would ever be the same.

6 | Sauntering Through Santa Monica

Winterlit at Third Street Promenade

Drink this: Sava Lime Basil

Our next stop was a leisurely stroll through one of downtown Santa Monica’s coolest holiday pop-ups: Winterlit at Third Street Promenade. Featuring a wonderful display of holiday decor, including the lighting of their 24-foot Christmas tree as well as their nightly menorah lightings, this event proved to be the perfect time to crack open Cann’s exclusive new flavor: Sava Lime Basil. With a refreshing, social buzz, we strolled, shopped and stopped at any and every attraction we could, including Third Street Promenade’s one-of-a-kind Conscious Night Market!

LA is a city full of fashionistas, so we were not surprised to see the streets of downtown LA come to life for Unique Markets Holiday Market. Flooded with unique, home-grown vendors and up-and-coming designers, this one-of-a-kind market had us in awe. Our advice? Pack one of Cann’s Blood Orange Cardamom Hi Boys to get you out of your shell and explore the streets of DTLA, taking in the beautiful fashion and artwork.

8 | A Trip to Tinseltown

Tinseltown Lost Property Bar

Drink This: Lemon Lavender Roadie

For our last stop, we decided to see if Cann could compete alongside one of LA’s best bars: Tinseltown Lost Property Bar. In an effort to save money (and spare ourselves from a hangover), we cracked open one of Cann’s Lemon Lavender Roadies before our walk over. Upon arrival, we were amazed at the absolutely insane amount of decor adorning each and every square inch of this space. Cann had us feeling energized and mesmerized the whole evening, even allowing us to enjoy one of Tinseltown’s specialty holiday drinks without feeling the need to sip with speed.
