This year, Pride Month in the United States and countries around the world will be very different for the LGBTQ+ community as a result of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Although Pride parades, Pride marches, and festivals won’t be taking place this year as a result of the coronavirus, it’s still possible to celebrate Pride Month at home and online.
In fact, there are more ways than ever to show your pride this year, from giving back to important LGBTQ+ causes to making your own CBD-infused rainbow recipes and attending online streaming events.
Here is how you can spread the love and connect with others to celebrate Pride Month while social distancing.
Purchase Pride Merch Online
If you’d like to celebrate Pride Month by supporting a cause, purchasing Pride merch is one of the best ways to do it. Many retailers are getting in on the action and are letting you know that they are donating the proceeds of the sales of their Pride merch to worthy organizations.
While you might just want to buy something with the rainbow flag colors, Pride merch is so much more important than that. Some of the more thoughtful brands release limited-edition collections to celebrate Pride Month as a partnership with LGBTQ+ charities and organizations.
These LGBT community charities and organizations address a full range of issues that affect the community. However, they have gone underfunded and unheard in many cases such as homelessness, mental health, and joblessness. There are also those who are not yet able to be openly gay or true to themselves who also need the support of these organizations.
In your search to find Pride merch, make sure to look for detailed information on where the proceeds of your purchase will go. You should also find out how much they will contribute to ensure that you are doing the most good.

Make CBD-Infused Drinks
CBD-infused drinks have become the latest craze of the year and what better time to induce than by making your own Pride-themed drinks? Adding just a drop or two of your CBD tincture into a cocktail or mocktail is the perfect way to enjoy CBD and celebrate Pride Month.
It integrates well with any type of cocktail that has a foam or head on it which causes the CBD to become trapped in the top layer. This means that you’ll be able to see it and smell it as you take a sip for a unique drink that you won’t find anywhere else.
CBD tends to blend well with flavors that have similar qualities such as basil, matcha, mint, and hops. Don’t hesitate to try mixing it into your favorite cocktail for an interesting and surprising twist.
Bake your Own CBD Desserts
If cocktails aren’t your thing, some CBD sweet treats to celebrate Pride Month just might do the trick. One of the best things about cannabidiol is that mixing it with food does not lessen its effects. It’s perfectly fine to add some full-spectrum CBD tincture to baked goods.
How much you will use will depend on your desired dosage per serving.CBD infused baked goods tend to take on an earthy flavor that won’t go unnoticed. So the best thing to do is choose a recipe that incorporates any kind of chocolate: white, milk, and dark. Receipts that feature peppermint or spearmint also work well.
CBD baked goods are delicious and perfect for indulging in anytime you want!
