May the Fourth be with you! 

That’s right, the special Star Wars holiday – not the Star Wars Holiday Special – (thankfully) is here once again. And with the recent addition of the Mandalorian canon, we have an excuse to celebrate Star Wars all month long; after all, “This is the May.” 

What better way to spend a twelfth of the year than sitting back, roasting a few bowls in Star Wars-themed glassware, and dissecting the many plot holes and physical impossibilities present in the latest films of the franchise. 

But remember to pace yourself; the Fourth may be with you, but a nasty hangover is the ultimate Revenge of the Fifth. Luckily, if you keep to the herb rather than indulging in some Corellian ale, you can largely avoid the effects associated with the Dark Side of the Force. 

In the wise words of Master Yoda: 

Here are some handpicked Star Wars-related cannabis memes, gear, and strains to kick off the season!

Strains

Apparently, there are plenty of growers who are Star Wars fans, as the number of strains that reference the franchise continues to grow faster than Disney’s expanded universe. Here are a few of the best strains guaranteed to transport you to a galaxy far, far away:
