Green Wednesday: What Is It, and Why Is It So Important?

Green Wednesday Buds Goods Massachusetts Weed deals


It’s that time of year when celebrations become back-to-back on the calendar. We’ve had Halloween, Thanksgiving is right on the doorstep, and Christmas is a mere few weeks away. Another, newer, celebration that has popped up around this time of year is Green Wednesday.

If you haven’t heard of Green Wednesday, read on to learn more about this holiday and how to celebrate it.

What is Green Wednesday?

Green Wednesday is essentially the equivalent of Black Friday and Cyber Monday, two shopping holidays celebrated in the retail industry. Think about great discounts, excited customers, and opportunities to try new products. If you love these two days, you’ll be sure to love Green Wednesday, too. 

Green Wednesday is celebrated by cannabis dispensaries and consumers on the day before Thanksgiving. That means this year; Green Wednesday falls on Wednesday, November 22, 2023

Green Wednesday’s impact on cannabis purchases is massive—on Green Wednesday in 2020, cannabis purchases rose by 350%! And in 2021, $98 million was spent on cannabis on Green Wednesday alone. Green Wednesday 2023 is sure to be no different. 


Green Wednesday is a relatively new celebration that started in 2016. 

It’s believed that the name “Green Wednesday” was coined when a cannabis delivery service noticed a record-breaking rise in cannabis purchases, right before the Thanksgiving holiday, which is celebrated in the United States on the fourth Thursday of November each year. 

As the years passed, Green Wednesday gained traction and became a holiday of sorts—the kind where cannabis dispensaries have jumped on board to offer special deals that only come around once a year. 

Why is Green Wednesday important to the cannabis community? 

Today, Green Wednesday is the second largest cannabis celebration, falling just behind “420” (April 20)—clearly, it’s essential in the eyes of the cannabis community! 

Why is Green Wednesday so important? While we don’t know for sure, we can think of a few probable reasons. 

The great deals almost certainly play a key part; who doesn’t love those? And the timing of Green Wednesday is perfect: with festivity in the air, people feel a broad spectrum of emotions, from feeling celebratory to being more stressed than usual, and perhaps even lonely for people who can’t be with their families. People are looking to use cannabis to unwind, relax, and just have a good time. 

Another reason why Green Wednesday and Thanksgiving make the perfect match is because cannabis is associated with the munchies and relaxing on the couch with loved ones. Thanksgiving is also associated with huge amounts of food and some downtime, so it’s natural that the two go well together.
