Every stoner knows that there are a million hacks for getting high easier. But sometimes papers rip and bongs break, so sensible stoners should have a contingency plan. From making use of fruit that is sitting on the counter to slowing down the burn cleaning up a catastrophe, here are five unusual stoner hacks that even the most elevated of smokers will use in the future.
It is said that even the best-laid plans of mice and men often go awry. So, sometimes, you’ll need to improvise. One of those times is if you’re out of papers, or have dropped your glass pipe and seen it shattered, which will mean you’ll need to find another way to smoke.
2. That’s so sweet
If your blunt is burning way too fast, or not burning evenly, you need to sweeten it up. You can do that with a bit of honey, just a couple of drop, which will slow down the burn.
If you’re unsure of how to go about doing that, check out this sweet – pun totally intended – video.
3. Oh, that sucks
You’re about to roll up, or fill your bowl, there are those terrible times when you knock your buds onto the ground. No stress, as there’s a quick and easy way to retrieve your herb, which uses a clean, white sock and your vacuum cleaner.
Just put the white sock – again, it’s best if it’s clean – on the bottom of the vacuum’s hose and turn it on, which will safely collect your stash and you can continue your night as planned.
4. Pasta the dutchie to the left-hand side
So, you’re you out of cardboard, but need it for a filter. Instead of that old way, you can improvise with a piece of pasta. Yeah, that’s right, a dry piece of pasta – in particular, fusilli pasta – will work, which will even improve your joint. A piece of fusilli not only makes for better airflow, but it also gives better form to your joint.
5. Ping bong
If you have ever taken too big of a hit from a bong, you’ll know that you can sometimes inhale water along with your smoke, but there is a hack to stop that from happening.
To make sure you don’t drown in bong water, just drop a ping pong ball into the water, which will be sucked into the hole before water.
