10 Marijuana Life Hacks You Need to Know

Published on

Everyone has their own tips and tricks when it comes to marijuana. And most of them are probably not very good. But luckily there are some very easy life hacks that just about anyone can use while consuming marijuana.

Here are 10 of the best marijuana life hacks you need to know.

1. Use Honey to Seal a Blunt

Just a few drops of honey is an excellent way to hold a blunt together, and it will also allow it to burn more slowly, which means you can enjoy it for a longer amount of time. Win-win!

2. Use a Frisbee While Rolling a Joint

When rolling a joint, you can use the inside edge of a Frisbee to help do so easier. It will prevent any marijuana from spilling out and make it just a less frustrating experience.

3. Chew Gum or Use a Breath Mint to Get Over the Munchies

This is a life hack in general if you’re looking to snack, but chewing gum or sucking on a breath mint will often help you get through the munchies while getting high. That way you don’t have to worry about so many excess calories.

4. Use a CD to Pack a Bowl

When packing a bowl, in can often be frustrating to stuff the marijuana into the tiny opening. But you can put a CD on top of the bowl and use the hole in the disc to stuff it more easily. Unfortunately, you’ll probably also need to remember when you left your CDs.

5. Use a Sock on a Vacuum to Recover Dropped Weed

In the process of getting ready to smoke, you’re probably going to drop some marijuana on the floor. And you probably just give up and take it as a loss. But if you put a sock over a vacuum hose, you can use the suction from the vacuum to pick up anything you dropped without risking it going all the way in. Then you just collect everything you sucked off from the sock. We’d suggest you use a clean sock for this one.

6. Use Leftover Stems to Make a Cannabis Tea

After you’re done smoking a bowl, you’re probably left with a bunch of stems you don’t know what to do with. Well, instead of throwing them out, just make a tea with them. Take some hot water, tea leaves and grind up the stems and you’ve got yourself a nice cannabis tea.

7. Use Tweezers if You’re Missing a Roach Clip

You’re at the end of a joint and don’t want to burn your fingers as you finish it off. So you go to look for your roach clip but can’t find it. Don’t worry, a simple pair of tweezers will do the trick.

8. Use a Penny as a Substitute for a Grinder

Can’t find your grinder? Don’t worry about tearing up your house looking for it. Simply take your marijuana and put it in a pill bottle or small jar with a penny and shake it. The penny will grind it for you. Heck, you might even start using this method instead.

9. Store Your Marijuana in a Mason Jar

Most people use jars and bags to store their stash, but a mason jar is actually the best method. The create an airtight seal that will keep your marijuana at the perfect condition, and will prevent it from degrading over time.

10. Use a Gamecube Controller to Pack a Bong

Unfortunately, this life hack will only be relevant for the few people who still kept their Nintendo Gamecube for all these years. You can use the controller to hold your bong head up while you pack it. At the very least, this will give you a reason to go down into your basement and dig up the old console.
