Every once in awhile in our stoner lives, there comes a time when we just want to get completely fried. #truestory
Look at it this way:
There are generally two types of cannabis consumers: recreational and medical. Medical users can be divided into people who enjoy both the psychoactive and medicinal properties of cannabis and into people who just want relief without getting high.
Recreational users, however, are looking for one thing and one thing only: experiencing the best possible psychoactive effects. And some of them will go to great lengths to achieve that.
When it comes to choosing a way to get the highest, you have a couple of options on your hands but it all essentially involves around one thing:
Getting more cannabinoids into your bloodstream.
But before we go into the exact methods that are guaranteed to blast you right away, there are some boxes that you should check beforehand.
First of all, make sure that the strain you are smoking is high in THC. Some good recommendations are Girl Scout Cookies, The White and the good old Red Dragon. Really, anything above 20% THC and you’re good to go.
Second, take time to grind up your bud finely. The reason for this is simple: you reduce its volume so you can fit in more into less space. And more weed in less space means a stronger high.
Finally, try to avoid common stoner myths that are circling the society. Some people may advise you to hold your breath for 20 seconds when inhaling, however, I do not recommend doing that as it does absolutely nothing for your high except causing a mild headrush due to the lack of oxygen. What I do instead is just hold it in for 2-3 seconds before exhaling.
Now, even though you can get the highest by just smoking more (duh), there are a few other smoking methods that seasoned users swear by.
Here are the 3 best ways to smoke weed to get the highest:
It’s not a secret that bong hits can get you wrecked really quickly, but have you ever tried using a gravity bong (aka the bucket)?
Apparently, this is what Bob Marley used on occasions. It looks complicated at first but it’s really easy to make.
The way it works is that you have two containers: the first is your bucket (or anything else with an open end) with water and the second is a smaller bottle with a bottle cap, which you cut in half.
You insert either a cone piece or a downstem through the bottle cap, pack the weed, light it up and wait for the smoke to fill out the smaller bottle.
And here’s where the gravity part comes in:
You push the smaller bottle downwards, into the water, while inhaling — the water compresses the smoke and, in return, you get a huge toke.
Here’s a tutorial I followed to make my first gravity bong:
WARNING: Do not use tin foil to replicate a cone/downstem, as it is actually really bad for your lungs. Instead, pick up a glass cone piece that you can insert through the bottle top.
This one is a no brainer — you can pack a lot more weed into blunts than you can into regular joints. Especially when you finely grind it.
And even better, blunts have countless variations. There are, in fact, as many types of blunts as there are blunt wraps and cigars. So, you can play around with all different wraps until you find your perfect combo.
As a huge plus, there are companies that specialize in crafting blunts that produce a particular aftertaste, like orange, cherry, honey, etc.
You can usually pack about 1-3 grams of weed into a blunt, depending on its size. Since that is a lot of weed for one cigar, it will literally blow the top off of your head if you’re smoking it for the first time.
Which is probably what you want if you’re reading this.
Nevertheless, blunts are pretty easy to roll. Here’s a quick video tutorial to get you up to speed:
Quick tip: when you inhale, keep it in for 2-3 seconds (not longer) and exhale.
There is getting high and then there is getting HIGH.
And If you’re looking to get HIGH, then look no further than twaxing — smoking blunts filled with mixed cannabis concentrate and flowers.
As you know, concentrates come in many forms, but if you have some weed on you then you can make your own version.
The easiest one to make at home is called rosin and we recently did an in-depth tutorial on how to make your own. The only thing you’ll need is a hair straightener, parchment paper and some weed.
Once you go through the entire process, you’ll end up with your very own cannabis concentrate, clocking in about 60-80% THC.
The only thing left to do then is add that concentrate to your blunt and roll it up.
Important: strap up your seat belt before you take off.
