Use an Old Mascara Brush to Clean your Grinder
A mascara brush is a perfect size to clean a grinder and this is great because most ladies have quite a few old mascara brushes around. This might not be the first household item you think of to clean your weed accessories but it is the best one. To use it, soak the applicator in a cleaning mixture composed of isopropyl alcohol, warm water, and soap. After that the rest is pretty intuitive, just use it as a brush to clean your grinder!
Add Dish Soap to your Glass Cleaner
Cleaning bongs can be tedious but it needs to be done, especially if your glass piece is a stylish bong. Most commonly people clean glass with rubbing alcohol, warm water, and coarse salt. These cleaners work fine but there leave the hard-to-get grime and make you scrub more than you need to. Simply adding some dish soap into the mix can do the trick and make cleaning glass so much easier. You can use it separately or mix it with the rubbing alcohol to make one cleaning mixture, either way works fine, but mixing will mean less time scrubbing. Also, understand that you don’t need a lot of dish soap, just one squirt is enough for this weed hack. If you don’t want to go through the work however, just grab some resolution cleaning gel to clean your piece nice and quick.
Make an Apple Pipe if you’re in a Pinch
Possibly the biggest weed hack of all is homemade pipes. At some point in every stoner's life, they will want to smoke and not have a smoking device to do so. Maybe your pipe recently broke and you haven’t replaced it, or maybe you are somewhere that you don’t have your pipe on you. Either way, don’t let not having a pipe on you stop you from smoking. Grab an apple and remove the stem, in a matter of minutes you can have a homemade fruit pipe. Next, use a pencil to poke a hole through the side of the apple toward its core. Then make a hole going downwards from where you pulled the stem, this should be perpendicular to the first hole you made. Then just load your weed on the top of the apple where you removed the stem and light it, you can inhale smoke from the first hole you made. You can even hollow out a pen and stick it in that hole to make a mouthpiece.
Keep your Lighter with your Bong
Stoners are notorious for losing things, especially their lighters. One way to nip this in the bud is to attach your lighter to the bong itself. Make your lighter a “bong lighter” and don’t use it for anything else. To attach your lighter, you will need some super glue and some magnets. By now you might see where this is going, use the super glue to attach a magnet to both your bong and your lighter. Once you’ve done this simply stick your lighter to your bong after you're done using it by sticking the magnets together. This is a great way to ensure that you’re never without a lighter when you want to smoke with your bong.
Do it Yourself Hash
If you don’t know, hash is a much more potent variant of marijuana. And if you don’t want to go out and pay a pretty penny for it, you can actually make your own. For this, you’ll need a hair straightener, newspaper, and some parchment paper. Take your regular dry bud and flatten it out onto the parchment paper. Then fold the parchment paper over it so that you have your dry bud covered on all sides. After this, lay your parchment paper onto a newspaper and fold the newspaper over it and make it as flat as possible. Lastly, take your hair straightener and put the newspaper in between the clamps. Press down on the newspaper for a few seconds and release. Then unfold your newspaper and parchment paper to reveal the compressed dry bud. The bud should look like a small sheet of paper, take that and fold it once and repeat the previous steps. Do this a few more times and you’ll have hash.
Keep Lip balm and Sunglasses with your Weed Collection
Two of the most common side effects of smoking weed are red eyes and dry mouth. In order to combat these effects, keep some lip balm and sunglasses with you at all times. Once you’re blazed, you may feel too lazy to go and get your sunglasses or lip balm, especially if you have to find them, so it’s better to be prepared beforehand. Sunglasses are especially important as they can conceal your high if you ever need to look inconspicuous. Make these two items a staple in your collection, you will be happy to have them later on.
Suck on Candy While you Smoke
If you ever want to spice things up, sucking on candy can drastically change your smoking experience. As you might imagine, this will change the flavor profile of your weed greatly. There’s no way to say exactly what it tastes like, as different candies will have different tastes when they mix with your bud, so you’ll just have to see for yourself. This should be obvious but it needs to be hard candy, jolly ranchers work great for example. It might seem like it’d be difficult to smoke while sucking on a hard candy but it’s really not, just push the candy into your cheek with your tongue while you take a puff.
Smoke Before Mealtimes
Smoking marijuana induces an appetite, so use that to your advantage. Smoking before mealtimes means that your dinner or whatever meal you’re having will taste better than ever. On top of that, doing this means that you won’t be adding an extra unnecessary meal to your day. Smoking is going to make you want to eat, so if you do it separately from your planned mealtimes, you may end up eating more calories than you wanted to. Smoke before you eat to keep calories down and enhance the taste of your meals. This is possibly the most practical life hack!
