Alert all commands: May 4th is approaching! Fans of the Star Wars trilogy have declared this the official day to celebrate and appreciate this epic series. Whether you enjoyed the original trilogy or the more modern versions, there’s something for everyone. These iconic films have a special place in popular culture, with millions of fans worldwide. Read more about this grassroots movement and find out what hemp-derived products would be perfect for the occasion.
May 4th Origins
The term ‘May the 4th Be With You’ is a pun that has evolved into a tradition created by fans for fans. It all began in a galaxy far, far away, or perhaps in a country called Canada. The first official event took place in 2011 at the Toronto Underground Cinema. This event showcased the Star Wars films and included a trivia game and costume competition. Shortly after, The Walt Disney Company adopted this holiday, turning it into a full-out production and allowing visitors to their theme parks the chance to celebrate its legacy.
But what are the fans celebrating? Most importantly, they’re celebrating the overall achievement of producing a series such as this. After all, George Lucas is one of the greatest storytellers of all time. He created a fantasy world that appeals to people’s curiosity about the mysteries of space. But really, it’s all things Star Wars. Many fans love the costumes, growing a big cosplay community. The franchise also includes a long list of video games, books, and so on. The fans also have their own unique lingo. Even social media shows its support! Twitter has reportedly added miniature Stormtrooper and C-3PO icons to hashtags.
Fun fact: If one day isn’t enough, there’s also Revenge of the Fifth (May 5). Another Star Wars-themed day, celebrating the villains of the film.
Marking the Occasion
There are so many ways fans can celebrate and show their love for the series — the possibilities are endless. Here are some ideas that could make this year’s celebration out of this world!
- Recreate the Walt Disney World Jedi Training Academy for a family-friendly experience.
- Plan a Star Wars-themed game night with family or friends.
- Host a galactic smorgasbord with Star Wars-themed recipes.
- Get your DIY on, make a Star Wars Terrarium or do a jigsaw puzzle!
- Do a traditional Star Wars watch-a-thon at home.
A Sense of Community
You can make some direct parallels between the Star Wars community and the cannabis community. Both groups are inclusive, representing individuals from all backgrounds. These communities bring people with similar interests together and are known to encourage creativity. It also fosters an environment of acceptance and connection. In some ways, the communities largely intersect. Watching movies while under the influence is one of the more common activities cannabis consumers enjoy in their free time. The relaxing effects of cannabis go well with adventure movies like this, offering an elevated experience for mature audiences.
Genealogy Deep Dive: Skywalker OG
The cannabis industry offers many Star Wars-inspired cultivars. Some of these special strains include Death Star, Jedi Kush, and Skywalker OG. The genetics of the Skywalker OG cultivar is not completely clear. However, most legacy growers agree its lineage may have come from crossbreeding Skywalker (Blueberry X Mazar) with OG Kush. It’s unknown who originally bred this Indica-dominant hybrid, but it may have come out of California. With a THC potency of 20% or more, consumers report experiencing a mellow effect. Its terpene profile includes Myrcene and limonene, providing this strain with a spicy herbal scent. The flowering time is approximately nine weeks and has a moderate to heavy yield.
