Whether it’s the Fourth of July, Labor Day Weekend, or a summer cookout, a backyard barbecue is even more fun when cannabis is involved.
So Weedmaps News has put together a list of products for elevating the experience. As always, when mixing THC and food — and especially alcohol — don’t overconsume. It’s better to underestimate than overestimate, since you can always have “one more bite” if you need to up the dosage.
So be safe, mow the lawn, and invite a few friends over. Any of the following products will add a fresh new high to your next summer gathering.
Flav — Lemonade
Is there a better summertime drink than lemonade? While it’s always nice to give it a spike of vodka, you can now set the booze aside and let the effects of cannabis take over instead. Flav comes in individual packets, which are easy to take on the go. Just add water and you’re all set with a tall, refreshing glass of lemonade. The THC transports into the system quickly. You’ll likely feel the effects in 15 minutes or less.

Ganja Juice Cannabis Infused BBQ Sauce
No summer cookout is complete without a little barbecue. This sweet-and-savory sauce is perfect for ribs, chicken, or pork chops straight off the grill. Each 200 milliliter bottle contains 500 milligrams of THC, or about 14 milligrams per serving. If you’re the kind of person who loves to drown their meats in heavy amounts of BBQ sauce, it’s probably best to mix this with a cannabis-free version or use it as a base for your own homemade recipe.

Evergreen Organix — Cereal Treats
We know that whoever shows up with Rice Krispies treats is always the hit of any party. Feel free to put a cannabis-infused spin on it with a line of cereal treats by Evergreen Organix. They come in rice, fruit cereal, magic marshmallow, cookies and cream, cinnamon, and peanut butter versions — all designed to make you forget old morning favorites ever existed. The chunky squares are made with marshmallow and cannabis-infused butter with either 25 milligrams or 100 of THC.
Fairwinds — Sriracha THC Tincture
Bring the heat to any order of chicken wings with this spicy tincture, made with oils of jalapeño and ghost peppers. Each bottle has 100 milligrams of THC, which breaks down to 4 milligrams per serving. Use the product to spice up a BBQ sauce, bowl of chili, or your own Bloody Mary recipe. A little goes a long way. Consider yourself warned!
Beat the summer heat with grape and cherry-flavored ice pops. Each individual frozen treat contains 10 milligrams of THC sourced from an indica strain for a relaxing, reinvigorating high. Nectarbee is an in-house brand for the Green Solution, which has 17 dispensaries throughout Colorado.
Price: $2.45 each (Buy a pack of 10 for $10, July 1-3)
Binske — Yampa Valley Honey
Forget about ranch and honey mustard. Instead, add a gourmet touch to your fried chicken with a drizzle of THC-infused honey. The sweet-and-savory combination works best with Yampa Valley Honey by Binske, which has a light, natural floral flavor without any artificial additives. Binske honey is available in orange blossom, clover, and wildflower.
