Top 5 Ways to Conserve Your Weed
There are plenty of ways to smoke and reach cloud nine, but a lot of people don’t think about the fact that the magical herb that makes everyone so happy is not only an uplifting and relaxing gift from God, but quite expensive as well – especially if you’re going for the good stuff. So if you’re the type of person that loves their green, but still wants to save money each time they buy it, here are a few tips on how to get the biggest bang for your buck.
5. Clean Your Piece
Over time, resin and all sorts of black gunk will start to accumulate within your piece, whether it’s a pipe, bubbler, or bong. By cleaning the gunk off the inside of your piece, you’ll not only be giving your lungs a break from coughing up gross stuff in the morning, but also be conserving your overall batch of weed. The best method in trying to clean any of your glass hardware is to pour isopropyl alcohol 99% and a few tablespoons of Epsom salt into the piece – then shake it with the liquid as hard as you can. As you shake, you’ll start to see the resin scrape off as easy as pie. Once you’re done shaking, be sure to rinse all the leftover gunk and repeat the entire process until your piece is sparkling clean. Be sure to wait until the inside
If you have a dirty old pipe that can hardly be inhaled, try upgrading your piece to a bubbler. Bubblers are good because they not only add water to the mix, which is great for the health of your lungs, but also gives you clean and strong high. Although bubblers are only a little bit stronger than a pipe hit, they are definitely healthier. With less gunk gathering due to the bubbler’s water as well as the stronger hit, they’re not only easy to clean, but you’ll be sure to be smoking fewer bowls than if you have a pipe.
3. Just Save It For Later
It may sound condescending to say, but the best way to conserve is to simply stop smoking. You don’t have to stop smoking altogether – simply start scaling back on how much your weed intake is by either establishing a certain time of the day to smoke (like night time) or by being more aware of how much herb you’re grinding on the daily.
When seasoned tokers hear ‘vaporizer,’ their initial reaction is typically that vaporizing weed isn’t nearly as powerful as smoking it, whether it be compared to using a joint, a pipe, or a bong. The fact of the matter is actually the contrary - the high that comes from a vaporizer is a creeping high, not something you feel immediately, but slowly and also for a longer period of time. Because of this, vaporizing weed is the best route. Not only will you be getting more hits than burning your grass, you’ll also have the post-vaporized weed saved for future smoking.
As far as powerful hits go, you can’t beat a bong - especially if it’s a bong made by Weedo. Not only will you be getting massive rips that make up about five pipe bowls, you’ll also be delightfully relaxed to the point that you won’t have to reload the bowl for at least a few hours. Although bongs are a little bit expensive depending on which one you get, they are great for maintaining a long high as well as saving you a lot of money in the long-term.
