Take a hit of Wedding Crasher and almost instantaneously, you’ll feel a blend of euphoria, motivation, and creativity that will have you ready to hit the dance floor. Even better, our Wedding Crasher is also available as pre-roll singles, meaning you can leave the grinder, papers, etc. at home. Pocket space for the win!
