For those of us who love cannabis, we are always looking for easier and better ways to enjoy it. Regardless of it is for recreational or medical use, here are a few stoner hacks to help you up your cannabis game:
1. Use a Bobby Pin as a Roach Clip
Genius! Why didn’t I think of this? After all, what girl doesn’t have a million bobby pins scattered around their house?
Plus, for those of you who are like me and hate burning your fingertips, this is a great way to ensure you get the most out of your joint.
2. Keep Your Bong Clean With Oil
Bongs are messy business but adding a drop or two of coconut or olive oil will help reduce build up. Of course, you should keep your bong clean and try use fresh water regularly. Once it is time to clean it out, a shake up of rubbing alcohol and salt will help remove most of the resin to make it easier to clean.
3. Cannabis and Coffee
It has a nice ring to it, doesn’t it? Plus, having a cup of coffee or some form of caffeine before or during smoking will help combat the sleepiness from weed. Some smokers swear drinking coffee while high even improves their high! Might be due to the caffeine boosting their mood, but we can dig it.
Sounds perfect for that wake and bake!
4. Honey Makes a Blunt Burn Slower
Who doesn’t love honey?! It is sweet and delicious – plus, it will help your blunt burn slower and more evenly. To do this, just use a dab of honey instead of saliva on the edge of your joint. Plus, it tastes a lot better! Additionally, you can coat the entire skin of your roll paper or blunt before smoking.
5. Got Mad Munchies?
Sometimes you just want to enjoy the weed without the munchies – or is that just me? Either way, we have some tips for you. Firstly, try to schedule smoke time around when you normally have your meals (or vice versa). It is not 100%, but might help stave off some of those extra cravings!
Secondly, some stoners swear by the trick of distracting themselves with a mint or chewing gum to give you a little taste of sweet but without the major snacking!
6. Choose a Good Playlist
Every stoner knows the importance of having a good playlist. The right music can enhance your high, while the wrong music can put you in a less-than-enjoyable funk.
There are lots of pre-made playlists on YouTube and there is even a “Stoner Playlist” on Spotify if you are looking to jam out to something different! Or you can put your own together with all your favorite tunes!
7. Reap The Benefits of Mangoes
It has been suggesting that eating mangoes prior to smoking will result in a quicker, more potent and longer lasting high. This is due to myrcene, which is a terpene found in mangoes to give them their fruity smell. This terpene is also found in cannabis! In fact, a Swiss study of 16 different strains found this terpene present in each one.
It is suggested that eating a mango 45 minutes prior to smoking will increase the absorption time of THC from 7 seconds down to 4! Plus, they are full of vitamins and taste delicious!
8. Make Your Own Grinder
For many reasons, every cannabis user should own a quality grinder. However, if you don’t or you lost yours, you can actually make your own. All you need is an empty pill bottle and a penny – make sure to clean it with rubbing alcohol first though! Once that is done, place your bud and the penny into the bottle, close it and shake it up. The result is freshly ground bud, ready to be lit!
9. No Pipe Cleaner? No Problem
If you don’t have a pipe cleaner, you can use a ziplock bag, sea salt and rubbing alcohol as an effective alternative. All you have to do is put your pipe in a ziplock bag with some rubbing alcohol and sea salt and then shake for approximately five minutes. Then let it sit for another 20 minutes before you rinse it out to get rid of all that unwanted ash.
Of course, if you don’t have any of these either then it won’t help you much!
10. Make Your Weed Last Longer
You can make your weed last longer by wrapping black construction paper around your container or using black duct tape or paint to prevent light exposure. This will help your bud stay fresh for longer.
Plus you can use a white crayon to write the type of bud on the paper so that you’re cannabis is not only safe, but the strains you want are easy to find as well!
11. Bonus Hack!
Did you know you can now buy cannabis online? Technology is a great thing and with more and more mail-order marijuana service options becoming available, you no longer have to spend 1-2 hours travelling downtown to get your fix. Just order your favorites and they will be shipped discreetly to your door, just in time for your next party!
