We all know that sinking feeling when the weed jar is almost cleaned out. It doesn’t matter if you’re a rich bitch or smoking roaches out of the ashtray, the best way to get high is to smoke smart.
When money is tight you can’t go out and buy weed like a baller, we know your pain. Never again after this. You have to make the last of your stash stretch until payday. Instead of going without, think ahead. Here are some Mandatory tips for getting the most out of your dime bag before you can make it rain green once again.
Pass On Joints
Smoking a joint is one of the great pleasures of being a stoner. However, if you're trying to make your marijuana last, it's one of the biggest wastes of weed. Instead, opt for a one-hitter so you can ensure you're not wasting one drop of weed.
Hold The Smoke In
Sure, this seems like a rookie move, but have you ever been higher than when you first started smoking? This move is a no-brainer if you're short on weed and wanna visit Valhalla on short notice. You'll get higher from less weed just like your poor ass needs to.
Save Up Your Joint Butts
If you do smoke joints, don't toss them. Collect them and smoke the butts inside the bowl of your bong when you're so low on weed that you literally have none. This trick has saved us time and again while waiting for direct deposit to hit.
Smoke Once A Day
Although you might fancy yourself a wake-and-bake sort of fellow, it's better if you're not. In fact, if you're trying to stretch your stash, only smoke once a day, at the end of the day. This way you'll get higher with less weed while also getting knocked out so you don't keep smoking.
Store Your Pipe In A Container
If you're using a pipe to smoke, use something like a sunglasses case to keep it safe. This ensures your unsmoked weed stays safe. Anything that falls out of the pipe can be re-added later and smoked. #ballermove
Collect Stems To Make Tea
Tea is the "poor people's edible" and can do you right when you're down to nothing. Simply collect your stems and when you're desperate to get high, make tea. A 1/4 to 1/2 cup of stems will do the trick. Crush them up a bit, but not too finely or it's going to be tricky to strain them later.
Next, boil 3 cups of water. You'll need a binding agent to ensure the potency of this tea is legit. (Adding 2 tablespoons of alcohol of your choice after it's made will work, but if booze is a no go for you, use 1/2 tablespoon butter or coconut oil into the boiling water.) Once the water is hot, add the crushed stems and leave them in the water for 7 to 10 minutes. Strain the tea with a strainer, add the booze now if you're using that, and enjoy a cup of potent cup of holy hell you're so high.
