If you’re a self-proclaimed marijuana enthusiast, then you already know there’s a vast wealth of weed wisdom out there to aid you with even the most ridiculous of pot-related problems. But whether you’re a weed genius, a weed novice, or somewhere in between (like myself) there are certain pot hacks that are simple enough for any smoker to take advantage of.
Black out some mason jars
Wrap black construction paper around your weed jar to prevent exposure to light, keeping your bud fresher for longer.
Leaving some remnants in the packaging of flavored wraps will give your weed a nice flavor.
Use A Drop Of Honey To Keep Joints From Burning Too Quickly
When the joint or spliff is rolled you gently glaze the outside of the paper with a very thin layer of honey, it needs to be extremely thin, barely noticeable. Also, it smells and tastes delicious.
Eat mangoes before you consume cannabis
Apparently, mangoes can strengthen how baked you get. While a lot of it is hearsay, many articles, bloggers, and cannabis lovers are raving about their stone when consuming cannabis after eating mangoes. Test it out and tell us what you think!
Smoke Before Meal Times
The munchies can be overpowering, but you can smoke pot without clearing your pantry or raiding your fridge, (if you consider that a bad thing). If you plan your highs around your meals, (particularly if you just wait to smoke until you’re about to eat dinner) then you should be able to avoid the over-indulging that is often associated with smoking marijuana. The food will taste even more delicious, and you’re actually likely to have a better sense of when you’re full if you eat with a spirit of high mindfulness.
Close your eyes.
This interesting hack by reddit user arjeezyboom says to try closing your eyes before, during, and for at least two minutes after enjoying cannabis. When you open your eyes you’re baked in a place that you last saw sober.
Candy Or Mints While You Smoke
Pop a mint in your mouth to put an end to your munchie madness.
You probably don’t need me to tell you this, but sunglasses are essential if you’ve been daytime smoking and then have to go out in public. It’s so much easier to relax and enjoy your high when you don’t have to worry about your eyes looking too red or too low. Plus, UV rays are no joke. So, consider keeping a pair of shades in your handbag at all times.
Keep A Back-Up Stash Somewhere Safe
I’m by no means suggesting you should go all Ilana Wexler and hide weed in your body cavities. Also, running out of weed really isn’t that big of a deal unless you’re using it strictly to treat a medical condition.
Lighters are lost easier than socks in a dryer. Matches, on the other hand, are hard to run out of, extremely inexpensive, and have no butane to rely on.
Use A Bobby Pin To Clean Ash Out Of Your Bowl & De-Clog Your Pipe
I can’t even count how many times I’ve used one of my bobby pins to clean the ash out of a bowl or de-clog a pipe or a one-hitter. It’s perfect, because if you’re anything like me, you pretty much always have a bobby pin handy. The only downside to this hack is, if you need to de-clog your actual pipe instead of just your bowl, you’ll have to straighten out (and thus ruin) your bobby pin to do it — but bobby pins are super cheap and incredibly effective at clearing passageways. So, if you’re in a bind and have bobby pins to spare, give it a shot.
There’s many ways a peaceful smoke session can turn in to a nightmare. It’s important to know a few stoner life hacks in order to keep things easy.
