Crush it, roll it and spark it; seems like a perfect recipe for getting high. Though, if you are a regular stoner, like me you must know, getting high is not that easy.
I wish India can legalize it for us, but that’s a topic for another time. For now, let just concentrate on the problems stoners face during their smoke session and weed hacks to fix them.
1. How to take out ash from you desi pipe (chilam)
Although, rolling a spliff is quite easy, but stoners know the high they get from using chilam is way better than any joint. Though, when you are in mid-way, you need to take out the burnt ash, which can get tricky as the upper part of the chilam gets very hot. Use a boby-pin to take out the burnt ash before you can start the next round. This trick also works when you are using a pipe, though I know you are a chilam guy and pipes are just not your thing.
2. Cheapest way to clean your modern Chilam (bong)
In my group we always had a big argument before setting up a bong, the argument is all about who is going to clean it after the use. I know you all must have faced the same problem. That why this simply DIY that needs sea salt and rubbing alcohol can easily solve your problem. Pour the mixture of both inside the bong and give it a few shakes. Voila, your bong is free from all the residual ash and it looks like almost new.
3. Trick to maintain the same quality of your stash
Well, no-one wants to make regular visits to their peddler that’s why we all buy our stuff in bulk. From bulk I mean, buying the quantity that will last at least one week or two. Now what people don’t know is that the quality of your weed gets affected by the heat and light. That’s why you feel less high in the last buds of your stash. A simple way to make sure that the quality of your ‘marry queen’ won’t be compromised, store it inside a dark black box or cloth.
4. The scissor trick
I think only rookies use a grinder to crush their MJ, maybe they don’t know how to crush it into to fine bits by hands or they just don’t want the smelly hands that shout, I just rolled a joint.
But in case you are one of them and you forgot your grinder at home what will you do? Don’t worry you can still save your hands and get high, simply by using a scissor. Put your stuff inside a glass tray or any other base and use the scissors to chop your weed into fine piece to make a perfect roll.
5. Baptize you joint to prevent it from the fast burning
It is one of the biggest problems when you are sitting with a bigger group. Your doob won’t even survive the first round, in order to make sure it continues to serve all the people sitting in the circle at least until the second round, uses the technique of baptizing. How to do it? It might sound gross to some but it isn’t actually, simply put the rolled up joint inside your mouth and make it wet with your saliva. Others will certainly react like ‘what the hell is he doing,’ but don’t worry, they’ll thank you later when they notice the slow burning of the joint.
6. Rolling trick for noobies
If you can’t roll it, you shouldn’t smoke it. This is a truth, you are not worthy to smoke it until you can roll it by yourself and we all have that one friend who is just a disaster with rolling the sheet into a cone shape. But don’t worry use a pencil to roll the paper that you can later pack the joint. You’ll feel like a master as it turns out really smooth and tight. Still, I will suggest, earn your worth and learn how to roll it.
7. Add style to yourself so that no one can find how high you are in public.
If you stay high all the time, they won’t think you are high at all. I used to think the same way, unfortunately, that’s not true and your eyes can tell secrets that you are trying not to tell. Buy some cool shades with black glass and wore them in style when you are in public so that you can enjoy your high.
8. Talking less is necessary
Other than your eyes the only thing that can get you busted is your fucking mouth. I’ve seen people who talk a lot after smoking up, though this was not the part of their real personality. People, your close friends and parents can guess something is wrong and if you are not lucky enough you can get caught red handed. So, try to always be in control and remember where to stop.
9. Tinder dates feel better if you are high
Not everyone is a stud, there are people in this world who gets paranoid in front of a girl, don’t know what to say and sweat like they are taking a steaming bath. Luckily, everything will get sorted if you are high. As mentioned in the above point, people seem to talk a lot when they are high and feel confident. Which confirms your date is not going to get bored if you are high.
10. Smoke sesh before dinner
You happen to eat a lot of munchies after getting high and that tummy that used to be flat is growing into a round balloon. You might need to control your munchies craving. Smoke before you are set to go and join the dinner table and it will help you enjoy even the tindai ki sbazi.
11. Tip for guys when having sex
If you and your girl both like to get stoned before sex, it’ll be a good option to keep lube ready on the side table. Not just your mouth but smoking weed also dries up the vagina. Getting into your partner after getting high feel amazing and if you haven’t tried it yet then go and prepare for the night. Just make sure you lube is always ready.
12. Recycle the leftovers
No, I’m not talking about the leftovers from last night dinner. I’m talking about the leftover weed that you are thinking about throwing into the dustbin. There are plenty of things that you can make with the leftover stems of your bud. Use this weed hack and add them into your tea and this will be your new way to wake and bake.
13. Don’t know the proper use of Crab
If you just started smoking you might not get why there is a small hole in your bowl and bong. Well, first thing this hole is known as crab and does the task of clearing the smoke from inside of the bong. When you are lighting it up, you need to cover that hole with your finger and when you think you’ve gotten enough pull, take off your finger and continue inhaling will make sure that the bong is cleared off from the bong.
The advantage of this is that you don’t have to second puff to clear all the smoke.
14. Stems contain THC and get you high
Well, technically stem does contain THC but can it get you high? I don’t think so, the amount of THC present in the stem is quite low when compared with the leaves and bud itself. And at any cost, it won’t get you stoned, you can feel a little high but not stoned instead you might feel a headache after getting sober. Instead of smoking stem, use it to make other products like tea.
15. Weed never gets old, you can rehydrate it
If you find your year old stash or so and thinking about throwing it into the dustbin, stop, come back and listen. It is true that weed gets dehydrated when left unused for a long period of time but it doesn’t mean it’s won’t get you high. Simply put your dry weed inside a container with some orange peels and left it untouched for 24 hours. This trick will make your weed a little fresh and help it to get hydrated.
Getting high is not just about rolling, you need to take care of many things to make sure to have a perfect high. Tell me the problem you face while smoking up and I’ll try to provide you with the best solution. Till then use these weed hacks and tell me which you like most.
