Stoner Essentials #8 – Best Weed Grinders Money Can Buy

Best Weed Grinders of 2016

I began my whole journey of writing marijuana inspired product reviews a few months ago with the Stoner Essentials series, which I kicked off with a review of some of my favorite budget-friendly grinders.

However, my intent with that first review was to cover quality yet inexpensive grinders, as I knew first hand that Amazon has a surplus of them. For real though, there’s more grinders in the warehouses of Amazon than gay men’s smartphones.

Anywho, my focus with that first review was to showcase the best grinders that get the job done without breaking the bank. And truth be told, I was just testing the waters of the whole Amazon Associates program, which I have fallen in love with at this point. Not just because of the spare change it’s netted me thus far, but the excuse to buy an absurd amount of weed paraphernalia is just swell. Dandy, even.

Molecular Structure of CBD

CBD: The Gray Area’s Wonder Drug

Submitted by Appropos. Check out his blog!

When most people think of marijuana they think of THC, or tetrahydrocannabinol, the psychotropic primary isomer within marijuana that is responsible for getting people high.

But recently a lot of attention has been being paid to CBD, or cannabidiol, a non-psychoactive – yet therapeutic – cannabinoid that is becoming more favorable among the medical community for its lack of side effects and similar medical benefits to THC.

CBD has been proven to reduce anxiety, treat nausea and vomiting, combat psychosis, reduce seizures, act as an anti-inflammatory, combat neurodegenerative disorders, and even combat cancer. It has been proven effective against schizophrenia and certain types of epiliepsy. Some of the lesser known uses of CBD include cigarette addiction treatment, acne treatment, helps with diabetes, and even the prevention of mad cow disease.

Three dirty bongs in need of cleaning.

Stoner Essentials #7 – Keep Your Glass Bongs & Pipes Squeaky Clean

Best cleaning solutions for removing resin from glass bongs & pipes

One of the less pleasant aspects of using a bong or pipe to smoke weed is the inevitable buildup of nasty, sticky resin, which makes the piece harder to smoke and adulterates the taste of weed. Bottom line, resin is the bane of every weed smoker’s existence.

Experiencing the vast, wonderful world of glass pieces is my favorite part of being a stoner. Glass bongs and pipes are works of fine art, made all the more beautiful by virtue of their function.

The thing is, the more expensive and elaborate the bong, the harder it is to clean. Higher end bongs with intricate designs, while awesome, make for quite a daunting cleaning process. That is, of course, unless you have the proper tools at your disposal.

That’s where the following three cleaning solutions come in.

Sure, you could go with with the homemade salt + rubbing alcohol solution; and with some effort, you can certainly get your bong pretty damn clean with it. But if you ask me, it doesn’t make much sense to spend a poop load of money on an awesome bong only to skimp out on its maintenance costs. Especially when we’re only talking about an extra $15-20.

Full disclosure: I get a small commission from Amazon through their affiliate program when my readers purchase the products linked to in this review, or any of the products from the Stoner Essentials reviews. Having said that, I have used each of the following three products (and a handful of other similar brands) multiple times to clean my smoking devices, and chose these three for a reason: they work great.

Rubbing Alcohol

How to Make a Homemade Cleaning Solution for Glass Bongs & Pipes

So, you’ve been smoking weed from the same bong and/or pipe for some time now, and you’ve run into a problem – it’s filthy as fuck. Thick, sticky resin has built up over time. This nasty byproduct of your sinful weed smokin’ lifestyle coats the inside of glass pipes overtime, and can make them a lot harder to smoke out of.

The struggle is real.

You try your best to clean it out using nothing but faucet water, and quickly realize that’s not gonna cut it.

The resin left behind in bongs and pipes by smoked marijuana is notoriously difficult to remove, as you’ve just learned first hand. Typical cleaning methods don’t stand a chance in the face of a dirty bong.

You may figure – correctly – that hotter water will be more effective. Some people resort to soaking their piece in a pot of boiling water, but I don’t recommend this method for a few reasons. For one, it will stink your entire house up to high hell. And not with the pleasant fragrance of fresh marijuana buds, but the stale stench of moldy old resin. Not pleasant.

Besides, stoners and boiling water – or any scalding hot liquid, for that matter – are a dangerous combination. I know from experience, dude.

While there are awesome cleaning solutions you can buy that are specially formulated to clean stubborn weed resin off glass pieces, you can also devise your own formula super quick with ingredients you already have in your house.

Seven Tips and Tricks for Grinding Weed like a Pro

Weed Grinders: Seven Essential Tips and Tricks

Weed grinders are the best thing to happen to stoners since the bong. If you’ve ever found yourself without one in the midst of rolling a blunt, you know how essential they are to any weed smoker.

However, there’s a plethora of little tips and tricks that can make grinding weed a more versatile experience.

After I wrote a review on my favorite budget grinders a few months back, and more recently one on my favorite high-end grinders, I wanted to write a follow up detailing lesser known tips and facts about grinders and grinder usage.

This is basically the single most important piece of literature of the decade – nay, the century.

How to Make a Homemade Waterfall Gravity Bong

So, given my last few posts which detail tried and true methods of getting away with smoking weed at home and college, I feel obligated to elaborate on the topic of making a homemade waterfall gravity bong, also known as a “waterfall gb” or simply a “waterfall bong“.

I should note, the following specifications merely constitute my preferred style of waterfall gravity bong. You can extrapolate the physics of waterfall gravity bongs into virtually any manifestation. As long as it’s a container that sucks in weed smoke by releasing water, it’s a waterfall gravity bong.

How to Get Away with Stuff #2 – Smoking Weed at College

How to Get Away with Smoking Weed at College

Oh yes, here we are. It’s time for the second post in ewwty’s special How to Get Away with Stuff features. This time we are addressing how to get away with smoking weed at college.

While my readers are already pros at smoking weed at home, smoking weed at college is a whole different challenge. But just like anywhere else, there are safe and sneaky ways to smoke weed at college.

I should note, smoking weed in your dorm room is never safe. The college or university owns your dorm room, and therefore has the right to come in and search on a whim. Your rights as a United States citizen are not the same as your rights as a student of the college or university you attend.

How to Get Away with Stuff #1 – Smoking Weed at Home

It’s a problem every weed smoker faces at some point throughout their life: Smoking weed at home without getting caught. It’s no simple task.

I’ve smoked weed long enough to know how to get away with doing so in just about any situation short of air travel, so I’ve decided to share my tips on successfully getting away with it at home.

Having never been caught smoking weed – by neither law enforcement nor parental authorities – I’d say I’m a reliable authority on the subject of smoking weed at home. It has nothing to do with luck; I’ve never been caught smoking weed because I follow a very rigid set of guidelines whenever I get high which guarantee I won’t be caught.

Also, I’m white. So that helps.

You are very lucky. You are about to read a blog post. The first in a line of a theme of blog posts. Blog posts that will collectively contain every bit of relevant information with regard to getting away with all the fun shit us youngin’s love to do.

If you follow what I say, you will be able to smoke weed at home without getting caught by your parents. Having said that, nothing is foolproof. Don’t be a fool. Don’t take shortcuts.

*Update (12/7/2015): As 2016 approaches, I’m stricken with the sudden realization that this article is about to be FIVE FUCKING YEARS OLD! Which I understand is probably not too monumental of an anniversary for you, but for me… it’s a total mind-fuck. Like… you don’t know how ancient that makes me feel.

Anyway, I digress. The reason I’m inserting this little aside right here is because, despite the fact this article has consistently received more traffic than anything I’ve written since, it’s been quite a while since someone has commented on it. I figure it’s a psychological thing… people are just less inclined to comment on old shit. Having said that, and this astounds me, the number of views this article gets has literally increased every single month since it was published.

My point being, I’d love to see some new comments on this article, as I know you little weed smoking hoodlums are reading it. I mean, if you have nothing to say, don’t force it for the sake of my ego; but don’t remain silent just because this shit’s old as balls. I know at least some of you mofos have your own methods for getting away with smoking weed at home – don’t be afraid to share your expertise with your fellow stoner brethren!
