Just like day-to-day living, there are plenty of simple hacks that make life that much easier, which is also the same for those who enjoy getting elevated. Here are ten simple hacks that will make sure your time smoking is better than ever.
1. Be prepared
When you do decide to elevate and chill on the couch, it pays to have a good playlist – whether it’s music, television shows and movies – ready to go. So, before light up, put together the perfect upbeat playlist on Spotify, or load up some comedies like Pineapple Express and Dazed and Confused onto Netflix and let the binge begin.
2. The sweet stuff
There’s an easy fix to stop your joint from burning too quickly, and it is a delicious fix, too. That fix is honey. All you need to do apply a small dab of honey to your joint, and rub it over the rolled papers, which will result in a slower and more evenly burning joint – and one that tastes better, too.
3. Getting high-er
Even though weed can help with depression and anxiety, it can be a good idea to smoke when you’re feeling good, which only adds to the high. So, even though it can be good to get elevated and chill on the couch, keeping active or busy can be a great way of making your high even better.
4. Suck it
It’s hard to call it a downside, but munchies can become a problem if you have little self-control, and smoke often. So, instead of ordering in a pizza, you should try chewing some gum or sucking on a breath mint. Now, it may not sound effective, but doing either can help stop those cravings for something to snack on.
5. Good for something
Even though you might not use compact discs like you used to, chances are you still have some laying around your house, which can still come in handy – for other than listening to music, that is – by helping you pack your bowl. Simply put the CD over your bowl and use the center hole to make for easy packing.
6. Sock it to me
If you’re a regular smoker, there’s no doubt you’ve spilled your fresh ground up stash onto the floor at some point, which can result in panic. But there’s no need to worry, as a quick and easy way to collect it all is to put a clean sock – an important part to remember, too – over the end of your vacuum cleaner’s hose and suck it all up, which will let you safely recover your stash.
7. Waste not, want not
Did you know you’re able to make use of those leftover stems to brew yourself some cannabis-infused tea? It’s easy, too, only requiring the stems, tea leaves, and some hot water. The ground-up stems can go in with some loose tea leaves, which results in some tasty and healthy tea, which will be steeped in less than ten minutes.
8.These will work in a pinch
If you are without a roach clip, a great alternative is a bobby pin, which can be used to smoke the last of that joint. If you don’t have a bobby pin, head to the medicine cabinet and grab the tweezers, another great alternative to smoke with.
9. The future is here
Given that it makes for a clean, odorless smoke, vaping can be a great alternative to smoking a joint or from your bong, if only because it is easier on your lungs.
A clean bong or glass pipe is ideal for making sure the air – and smoke – flows easily, which isn’t always possible with a build-up of thick and gunky resin around the bowl. It’s easy to clean your glassware with some rubbing alcohol, though, which is a clean and effective way of making your glass look as good as new.
