Been smoking for years or totally noob smoker?
These ultimate weed hacks are for everyone.
We take you through some of our favorites in our top 20 weed hacks. We are sure you will find more than a few you can add to your smoking arsenal. Take your smoking game to the next level!
We have searched far and wide to compile the penultimate list of weed hacks to make you the ultimate stoner so without further ado here are the 420Smokers top 20.
1. Hooking in your filter to roll a perfect joint each time.
Thanks to the GrimReafer we learned how to roll a spliff easily and efficiently. Hook the filter right inside the paper so that it becomes a seamless part of the joint. This ensures that it never comes out mid smoke. Or when that greedy friend of yours puffs too hard or you haven’t sized it perfectly beforehand. It seems to smoke better as well, as the filter seems tighter against the edges allowing all the smoke to pass through the center.
2. The slow burning blunt hack.
This weed hack we only use on extremely rare occasions as we can’t vouch for the health issues this may cause over time. Sometimes we get some bud that just burns too quickly no matter which papers or blunts we try. This is when we break open the honey jar. Try a small amount of honey (Yep the type made by bees) spread on the outside of the joint and you will notice a slow burn that now tastes slightly sweeter. It also helps if you having that Gawd awful side burn and can’t figure out a way to fix it.
3. Keep control of your weed with this easy hack.
This ingenious hack was discovered by one of our tech devs that was always getting interrupted while rolling joints. Simply buy a piece of cardboard (thin enough to make paper tips out of but thick enough to have a little rigidity). Fold the card into a “fan” similar to a scrabble piece holder and have a small place to crush, roll and place your joints mid roll. The extra cardboard can be used to make filter tips!
4. Strong coffee before and during a good toke.
Personally I love coffee and always wake up to a fresh brew with my first toke. There is nothing better than having that strong cup of joe with an even stronger doobie to enjoy the morning sun. Too much weed can definitely make me lazy but good shots of caffeine often counteracts the threat. Too much caffeine can be a bad thing though so after a heavy smoking session or for a good days detox I always go to:
5. Matcha tea after heavy smoking sessions or the day after.
My go to drink as an anxious stoner, to sort out a Marijuana hangover or detox is a day with at least 3 or 4 cups of Matcha tea. With over 10 times more anti oxidizing power than goji berries and 100 times that of spinach Matcha can deliver powerful doses of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and amino acids unrivaled by other “super foods”. Matcha tea also has a soothing relaxing property that definitely helps with the craving of just having another joint.
6. When you run out of papers.
Probably the most common of all weed hacks. Grab your favorite piece of fruit or veg and make your own pipe. We personally prefer the ease of slicing into an apple to create the perfect bowl but you can pretty much make a pipe out of any carve-able fruit such as a pineapple or strawberry. Fruits are generally cheap enough to use as a pipe, organically disposable so environmentally friendly and freely available all over the world. As a pot head you most likely have a made one or two of these before.
7. Keep a Vape pen handy for those moments when you can’t be loud.
You know those moments. Your folks come to visit for the weekend or you out of town and staying in a hotel and just cannot find a place to blaze one without everyone around you smelling the reefer and potentially killing your vibe. Well 420smokers weed hacks got your back. A small, chargeable vape pen can be a savior! Vapes generally make little amount of smell in comparison to the alternatives of lighting up a cone or bong and if you caught mid smoke can easily be explained away as a e-cigarette. Just be sure to tell them the battery just died incase they want a hit and are not pot smokers.
8. No grinder, No problem with the shot glass weed hack.
Grab a shot glass and a small pair of scissors. Make sure you remove all the stalks and seeds and chop up the weed in the shot glass. If the pair of scissors gets too sticky get some iso propyl alcohol and wipe them clean. Alcohol is handy to also clean out bongs and other glass pieces that are caked in resin you may have lying around. If your bud is really sticky and you find yourself needing to clean the scissors often try to collect some of that sticky “scissor hash” for a special occasion.
9. Make almost instant “Dabs” at home.
One of our personal favorite 420Smokers hack is making hash at home. But making your own home made solids and oils the conventional ways can often be time consuming, wasteful and dangerous but who knew you could make your very own high quality “Dabs” at home using an ordinary hair straightener! We couldn’t believe how simple this was and the quality it produced. Simply set the temperature on the straightener to low and squish your bud in between a piece of parchment paper until the golden goo separates from the bud.
10. No lighter at home? Try this stove top hack.
If you are a smoker you most certainly have been at home without a lighter. Sometimes you just can’t be bothered to go to the nearest store just to get a flame. When you are in this position we recommend turning to the stove. Grab a stick of spaghetti and turn the stove top on. The spaghetti will catch a light and give you enough flame to light that bowl you racked the night before but couldn’t cash. Another way to use your stove is to make some canna butter for a batch of fresh edibles.
11. Get higher with a Mango smoothie.
Normally when we want to get more stoned we just roll up another joint. But this hack does work and makes a high last longer. Flavor terpenes in Marijuana being similar to ones found in Mango, will help THC get into the bloodstream. Added benefit is all the vitamins and goodness you just don’t get from a cup of coffee. Mangoes also taste great and can help you cut down on other sweet snack you may get the craving for when the munchies creep in. These recipes from Foodie Crush always sort us out.
12. Smell proof stash cases keep things clean and tidy.
Even though Marijuana is becoming acceptable in Society having a smell proof case is handy. Reduce the paranoia you may have carrying around stinky stash and have a place to store your smoking tools. Some of us carry ours everywhere fully stocked with a few g’s of wax, our trusty vaporizer, and a non stick dab tool. Others keep theirs stocked with papers, fresh buds, a micro grinder and lighter. However you use yours make sure you have all your smoking tools in one place with a smell proof case. Check out vapornation to grab yourself one.
13. No rig hash dabs.
Dab rigs can often be pretty temperamental. Pieces break at the worst times and your favorite torch always runs out of gas just when you get a few g’s of your mates best shatter. You could always just roll one and mix it into your joint or swirl it around if it is flexible enough but another method is rolling a joint or blunt with just weed and once you have a nice burn going slowly dab the end of the joint while taking a hit. The coal should be hot enough to vaporize the wax and allow you to dab without worries. Just make sure you use a metal utensil and not your non stick one as you do not want to be smoking silicon!
14. Single dose edibles in under 5 minutes.
On occasion you may feel like you just can’t smoke. Whether you had the biggest bong sessions the night before or just want to give those lungs a break. Try making these single dose “Firecrackers” next time. With these you will never overdose like when you ate that whole batch of brownies and your house won’t smell like a Jamaican hot house for a few hours. They are extremely delicious and you can make non-weed versions if you still feel like munching more.
15. Ashtrays stink. Replace them with a jar.
The smell of smoking marijuana in a room surprisingly can dissipate pretty quickly. But the smell of open ashtray can linger on until you clean it and can leave the room with a very nasty smell if you leave one overnight on your living room table. An easy fix it, with this weed hack is, to simply replace your ashtrays with mason jars. Whenever not in use you can keep the jar lid shut to keep smells at bay.
16. The perfect rolled blunt. Every time.
You may have seen rick ross, wiz khalifa or one of your favorite wrappers smoking a blunt and always wondered what wraps they use. Well you can go out and buy specialized blunt wraps and flavored wraps but we have found that Black & Mild cigars make the perfect wrap for a naturally flavored blunt wrap. Roll the tobacco out slowly and carefully and you will be left with a perfect cone with a mouth piece. Stack your ground bud into the cone and you set with perfect blunts every time.
17. Playing cards are not just for magicians and poker players.
One or two playing cards are cheap and a great addition to any stoners set of tools and a great weed hack. Buying a whole deck will last you a long time. Simply keep one or two cards in your wallet or smoking case and use one as a place to crush and roll your weed when you out. You can also use some of the card to create your filter tips or use one to create a roach clip if you don’t use tips. We found having a playing card or two handy made for a much more comfortable sesh.
18. A drop of oil can make the world of difference.
Adding just a drop or two of coconut, olive or even hemp oil will help prevent resin build up in a bong. You should still keep your bongs clean and try use fresh water after every hit. But we know that is easier said than done when you enjoying a bong session and in the middle of a online Poker Tourny. Once you do need to clean that bong out just add a dash of iso propyl alcohol and some salt and shake it up. This should remove most of the resin build up and make for a much easier cleaning experience.
19. Buy in bulk.
Buying weed by the gram can get pricey. Ask your dealer or dispensary what their discount policy is for ounces. Not only will you feel like a rapper with a whole “O”, you will also save some cash. Sometimes this weed hack can backfire as when we buy in bulk here at 420smokers, we end up just smoking more! Breaking up your stash into smaller sections and rationing can be a way to counter act this issue if you have enough will power.
20. Puff puff, pass.
Ok so number 20 is not really a weed hack, just some advice. Learn some basic stoner etiquette if you plan to become a stoner. Nobody hates anything more than someone that bogarts that joint or slobbers all over a roach. Simple things to remember are puff puff pass, only light one side of a bowl and always pass left in a group.
