As enjoyable as smoking weed can be, each and every frequent stoner knows that receiving higher is not normally as basic as we would like it to be. Grinders go missing, pipes break, cotton mouth will normally attempt to wreck your make-out sessions, and lighters that have been accounted for even though you have been grinding, packing, and/or rolling normally appear to vanish the second you are prepared to take that very first puff. On leading of all of that, though our culture’s misconceptions about marijuana have been gradually altering for the far better in current years, weed nonetheless is not accepted in most locations — so finding out how to blaze with discretion is sort of critical, also.
Thankfully, even though, in spite of the several stereotypes that would recommend otherwise, stoners can be fairly dang resourceful, (particularly about their bud) so there are a lot of cool weed hacks that can make your complete higher practical experience significantly easier and even a lot more enjoyable.
If you are a self-proclaimed marijuana enthusiast, then you currently know there’s a vast wealth of weed wisdom out there to help you with even the most ridiculous of pot-associated issues. But no matter if you are a weed genius, a weed novice, or someplace in amongst (like myself) there are particular pot hacks that are basic sufficient for any smoker to take benefit of.
1. Use A Bobby Pin To Clean Ash Out Of Your Bowl & De-Clog Your Pipe
I can not even count how several instances I’ve utilized one particular of my bobby pins to clean the ash out of a bowl or de-clog a pipe or a one particular-hitter. It is fantastic, simply because if you are something like me, you fairly significantly normally have a bobby pin handy. The only downside to this hack is, if you want to de-clog your actual pipe rather of just your bowl, you will have to straighten out (and hence ruin) your bobby pin to do it — but bobby pins are super low-cost and extremely helpful at clearing passageways. So, if you are in a bind and have bobby pins to spare, give it a shot.
two. Retain Lip Balm With Your Weed Paraphernalia
As you undoubtedly currently know, weed will dry you out speedy, and not possessing access to lip balm when that takes place (particularly if you are attempting to initiate a make-out session) can be fairly miserable. So look at maintaining some lip balm wherever you preserve all your weed stuff, and also attempt to bear in mind to preserve some in your handbag and/or pockets for when you are smoking away from household. That way, when cotton mouth turns your lips to sandpaper, the sweet, soothing resolution will normally be inside your grasp.
Personally, I’d recommend a mint-flavored lip balm simply because it aids with dry lips, any unfortunate smoker’s breath you could create, and also just simply because you will not locate a significantly tastier mixture than excellent bud and yummy mint.
three. … And Sunglasses Also
You almost certainly do not want me to inform you this, but sunglasses are critical if you have been daytime smoking and then have to go out in public. It is so significantly less complicated to unwind and delight in your higher when you do not have to be concerned about your eyes hunting also red or also low. Plus, UV rays are no joke. So, look at maintaining a pair of shades in your handbag at all instances.
four. Suck On Candy Or Mints Even though You Smoke
Personally, I’d give Jolly Ranchers a attempt — but fairly significantly any sort of candy or mint will operate effectively, also. What you will do is just pop the treat of your selection into your mouth even though you are prepping your bowl/bong/joint/blunt/vape, suck on it till you can seriously taste all it is sweet and/or sour-y goodness, and then preserve it in your cheek even though you puff. It is indescribably scrumptious, and it will also assist you combat each cotton mouth and the munchies.
five. Use A Clean Penny & A Pill Bottle As A Makeshift Grinder
Losing and/or misplacing your grinder sucks, but if you have access to a penny and any sort of pill bottle, it does not have to preserve you from receiving lifted. Clean the penny (or what ever coin you finish up employing) with rubbing alcohol very first, (simply because funds is notoriously gross) then drop a nugget or two in an empty pill bottle with the clean penny, pop the bottle’s lid into location, and shake. Voila!
six. Smoke Prior to Meal Occasions
The munchies can be overpowering, but you can smoke pot devoid of clearing your pantry or raiding your fridge, (if you look at that a undesirable issue). If you program your highs about your meals, (specifically if you just wait to smoke till you are about to consume dinner) then you ought to be capable to prevent the more than-indulging that is usually connected with smoking marijuana. The meals will taste even a lot more scrumptious, and you are basically most likely to have a far better sense of when you are complete if you consume with a spirit of higher mindfulness.
7. Retain A Back-Up Stash Someplace Protected
I’m by no implies suggesting you ought to go all Ilana Wexler and hide weed in your physique cavities. Also, operating out of weed seriously is not that significant of a deal unless you are employing it strictly to treat a healthcare situation.
That stated, it is nonetheless good to have a back-up stash often. Particularly simply because, in accurate stoner style, you will almost certainly neglect about it for a excellent even though and then take place upon it at the most opportune time. (At least, that is how it normally operates for me.) Just do not neglect to shop it effectively (mason jars are wonderful) and preserve it someplace your pets and young relatives will not locate it.
eight. Make Your Personal Bong Out Of A Plastic Bottle
OK, so I’ve in no way basically produced my personal DIY bong — but this amazing lady has, and she tends to make it appear fairly quick. Plus, you know, we ought to seriously take benefit of any chance to minimize, reuse, and recycle.
9. Retain Lube Handy
Even though weed can basically make sex a lot more enjoyable for several ladies, (in several instances it even tends to make orgasm less complicated to attain) it can also bring about vaginal dryness — so it is a excellent concept to preserve lube handy if you are arranging to bong and bang. Personally, I adore lube, and would recommend employing it no matter if you are possessing sex even though drunk, higher, or sober — but considering the fact that “cotton vagina” is a genuine issue, and vaginal dryness is just the worst, you ought to for positive keep stocked up on lube if you and your companion like to smoke prior to possessing sex.
10. Develop Your Personal “Chill Out” Mantra For When You are Feeling Paranoid
Smoking weed seldom tends to make me really feel paranoid, but I have gotten higher and then freaked out super difficult a couple of instances — and simply because of these experiences, I now have a mantra to calm myself down. What I like to inform myself is this: “everything is specifically the similar as it was 5 minutes ago — you are just higher.” Really feel totally free to repeat this to oneself if you are ever feeling freaked out just after receiving higher — or make up your personal mantra.
11. Use A Drop Of Honey To Retain Joints From Burning Also Rapidly
I’ve in no way tested this out myself, (mainly simply because I can not roll for sh*t) but evidently, if you rub a drop of honey more than the skin of a rolled joint, it aids avoid stated doobie from burning also swiftly. Also, it almost certainly smells and tastes scrumptious.
