From tips on how to save a bowl that was lost to the recesses of your carpet, or just trying prevent a joint from canoeing, there are some hacks that every stoner should know.
Use Your Vacuum to Save a Lost Bowl
This is one of the hacks I was really skeptical of, that is until I actually tried it! We’ve all had those moments where we’ve accidentally dropped the bowl. This usually happens right after packing a bowl, naturally. Lucky for you, there is an easy way for you to reclaim your lost reefer. All you need to do is put a black sock over the hose of your vacuum and proceed to vacuum over the spot. The sock picks up pretty much everything. You might get a tiny amount of carpet lint, but this is far more efficient than picking it up flake by flake. Also, you finally vacauumed your floor!
Make Your Own Grinder
A good grinder is something that every self respecting stoner should own, whether you smoke bowls the old fashioned way via combustion, or you prefer to indulge using a desktop vape. Sometimes you just don’t have access to a grinder. This is why knowing how to make a grinder is one of the most valuable hacks every cannabis lover should know.
If you find yourself in a sticky spot, you can rig a makeshift grinder from random items you have around the house. For this one, all you need is a prescription pill bottle and a clean penny. Toss Abe in the bottle with your herbal materials, and shake them around gently. Don’t shake too vigorously, you will turn it into dust. My advice is to shake it for a couple seconds, check on it, and shake again. I cannot stress enough that the penny should be clean!
Using Honey on a Joint to Prevent Canoeing
Honey has a lot of uses, including joint rolling. Honey makes not only a good joint sealer, but it also makes your joints and blunts burn slower. Honey also takes care of “canoeing”, which is when the joint is burning unevenly. As you can imagine it makes your smoke smell sweet and it tastes delicious!
Fusilli Makes a Pretty Good Joint Filter
Believe it or not, there are other uses for pasta besides eating it. Using uncooked spiral, aka fusilli pasta as a joint filter works quite nicely. Make sure that you use the right kind of pasta though! Obviously this won’t work with shell pasta, or macaroni noodles. In many ways it’s better than cardboard. It definitely hits a lot more evenly. Just so you know, you can’t boil and eat it afterward.
Always Keep Extra Chapstick Around
If you’re anything like me, you need a lot of chapstick when you’re partaking. Delicious as cannabis can be, it has a way of drying the hell out of your lips. I always like to keep spare chapstick in the box where I keep all of my pieces. That way I always know where it is. I tend to get a bit forgetful after consuming some Kush.
Indulging Before Dinner is Sometimes Best
One of the side effects of cannabis that can sometimes affect you negatively, is the increased appetite. There are some strains that make you feel as though you can polish off an entire bag of chips in one setting. The best way to avoid this, and one of the most valuable hacks every cannabis lover should know, is to smoke right before meals. That way you avoid unnecessary snacking.
Hide a Treat For Yourself!
If you’re the type that can go through more than two grams a day, and you really need to conserve your stash, then you might consider hiding a little away for emergencies. I can’t tell you how many times this has saved me in dire situations. If you’re not disciplined enough to do this, you can always have a friend do it for you.
