While arguments around the table are as common as turkey and stuffing come Thanksgiving, there’s a company that thinks it might have the solution this year: gravy infused with THC.

While dosing people without their knowledge is very dangerous, and illegal, Kiva Confections hopes consenting consumers will use the gravy to take the edge off this holiday season.

“With increasing social, political, and cultural divisiveness driving apart families and friends, Kiva Cannabis-Infused Gravy is back to unite us all around the dinner table,” its ad copy reads. “Turkey, mashed potatoes, awkward conversation, you can drown them all in the flavors of rosemary, thyme, and oregano – and 10MG of THC.”

The company promises that “In just under 15 minutes you’ll start feeling the effects, so you can sit back, relax, and let the holiday cheer wash over you.”

According to Kiva Confections, its “cutting-edge technology” allows the THC to absorb quickly “in a groundbreaking 2 to 15 minutes” — which is likely fast enough to chill you out before your drunk uncle gives his unique spin on the current political situation or any other controversial topic.

It was first sold in 2019 and before its return ahead of this year’s holiday season, the $5 ground gravy powder is being sold at dispensaries, “while limited supplies last.”

I am certainly not recommending not endorsing this, but if your family is one that may benefit from such things, have at it.

The discussion this morning was mostly “no way my family would ever do that,” but there was one or two who said they would love to see what kind of effect it would have on their family’s Thanksgiving.

What To Do With Those Thanksgiving Leftovers

Thanksgiving is coming, so prepare for the food onslaught! Everyone gets excited about the turkey and all the delicious food that will be eaten on Thanksgiving. And almost better than Thanksgiving dinner, are those delightful leftovers the next day (and the days after that). Sometimes, when you store Thanksgiving food properly, it really gives time for the flavors to set in.

It’s usually around day three where things go south. There is still a ton of food, but everyone is kind of “over it.” But you don’t want to waste food. Instead, try reimagining the ingredients into other delicious dishes. Here are some suggestions.
