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.

You’re welcome, internet. Continue reading “Seven Tips and Tricks for Grinding Weed like a Pro”

Weed Kief & You: A Love Story

The glorious bounty of delicious weed kief that a nice cannabis grinder bestows upon its owner is a good reason to start using one. It gets you high as fuck.

But let’s backtrack a little bit for my readers uninitiated to the world of kief. What exactly is kief? How do you go about getting your hands on it? And what’s the historical significance and context of this particular gift from the cannabis gods?

…Okay, I doubt anyone came across this article with that last question in mind – that’s just the history nerd in me poopin’ all over this party. Don’t mind me.

Anyway, to get the first question out of the way, weed kief is much more than just weed that has been pulverized into a fine powder. Kief is actually an accumulation of trichomes, otherwise known as the fine hairs and crystals found on healthy, quality cannabis buds. Most commonly a side effect of shredding buds in a grinder with a mesh sifter, there’s also a number of ways to extract kief from a batch of weed – a process I’ll cover in this post.

Stoner Essentials #6 – Smoke Weed Anywhere with these Inconspicuous Pipes

Best Pipes for Inconspicuous Smoking

So as you’ve probably gathered by now, I’ve spent quite a lot of time trudging through the digital aisles of Amazon to find some awesome and inexpensive products for my fellow weed smoking cohorts. For the sake of transparency, I might as well mention that the five reviews preceding this one have netted me a whopping $29.32 this August. Which is nice, but I don’t expect these reviews to hoist my ass from the sea of student loan debt in which I’ve immersed myself.

Anyway, I’m rambling. My point is, having spent so much time on Amazon searching for stoner related items, I’ve come to realize that Amazon is essentially a big-ass headshop. For instance, I had no idea they sold glass “tobacco” pipes, which are definitely not for smoking tobacco.

I’ll do a review on those later. But for now, in the spirit of keeping with the “Get away with smoking” theme, I’m gonna highlight a bunch of pipes that are meant to make it easier to smoke weed in places and situations where you probably shouldn’t be smoking weed.

Stoner Essentials #5 – Best Ashtrays for the Weed-Friendly Household

Best Ashtrays for Weed Smokers

Let’s be real, smoking weed can be a messy affair.

One of the messiest parts of smoking weed is, of course, the whole ash aspect. Or “ashpect,” if you’re Sean Connery.

Before learning of the following products, I made quite a mess in my house by ashing into makeshift ashtrays over the years – including, but not limited to, beer cans, the top parts of scented candles, and little makeshift ghetto-ass tin foil junts I’ve resorted to making myself.

No bullshit, the box that my very first cell phone came in is, as we speak, (not very well) hidden in my old room at my parent’s house, overflowing with damn near a decade’s worth of old weed ash. I still use it whenever I visit. Every time I tell myself I’m going to take care of it. I never do.

I’m contrite to admit, there’ve even been times I’ve just kind off… tossed that junt behind the couch like a booger. I know, shame on me twice; once for doing that, and again for implying that throwing boogers around all willy-nilly is somehow okay.

Stoner Essentials #4 - Avoid Getting Caught Smoking Weed

Stoner Essentials #4 – Get Away with Smoking Weed Anywhere

Best Tools for Covering the Smell of Weed

It’s been nearly half a decade since James wrote about Smoking Weed at Home and College without getting caught or smelling up your entire house or dorm. So when he started writing these “Stoner Essentials,” it seemed appropriate to highlight some items that would go along with it.

And by “appropriate,” I mean, “bleedingly obvious.”

Either way, as he mentioned in the first article about smoking inside your house, there are essentially three products every weed smoker needs if they’re going to risk smoking in the same house as their parents or in their college dorm: Air freshener, scented candles, and a sploof.

Stoner Essentials #3 – Best Scales for Weighing Weed

A nice digital scale is a must-have for any weed smoker. Most people think of scales as a product only pot dealers need, but even if you’re not in the business of selling weed, it’s wise to invest in a scale for a number of reasons.

The most obvious of which is the power to discern whether or not your weed dealer is shorting you. But other than that, a digital weed scale just comes in handy in a lot of situations. If you’ve ever gone in on a sack with one or more friends, you probably wished you had a pocket scale to split up the sack with accuracy.

An Open Letter to the Potheads of the World

Dear stoners and druggies alike,

As we know all too well, weed gets kind of a bad rap. Let’s face it: drug use in general gets one hell of a bad rap. It seems everyone knows someone whose life was destroyed by drugs.

See? Instantly when you read that sentence, your mind conjured up an image of the stereotypical drugged-up moron. The bumbling idiot who wears his Bob Marley tank top with pride (yet can’t name more than one or two of his songs), rocking his marijuana leaf socks, recording Snapchats of every bong rip he takes, posting about 4/20 on Facebook. He probably doesn’t have a job. He certainly has no ambition. Continue reading “An Open Letter to the Potheads of the World”

Six Good Reasons I Smoke Weed

I am the founder of a blog in which smoking weed is a primary focus (to put it lightly). So it kind of goes without saying: I like to smoke weed.

Anyone who smokes weed often enough has been asked, usually condescendingly, some form of the following question:

  • Why do you smoke weed?

The other day a friend asked a similar such question. I smoke weed every day, yet it was quite a while since the last time I reflected on the actual reasons for my continued use.

Since the questioner was respectful and seemed genuinely interested in my answer, I wanted to put some thought into it.

When that failed, I promised I would compose a ridiculously thorough response in the form of an article for my blog. Enjoy.

How to Get Away with Stuff #3 – Passing a Urine Drug Test

How to Pass a Urine Drug Test

So you need to pass a drug test? My condolences. But you’ve found the right article; this post is all about how to pass or otherwise beat a urine drug test – also known as urinalysis.

Notwithstanding the circumstances that forced you into the all-too-common predicament of passing a drug test, and regardless of the illegal substances you’ve consumed throughout the adventure of life, there is always a way for anyone to pass a drug test.

Having said that, the options available to drug users faced with the indignity of drug testing are numerous and varying. Continue reading “How to Get Away with Stuff #3 – Passing a Urine Drug Test”

Oh Lordie

I told myself I most certainly was not to consume – in any way, shape, or form – marijuana or marijuana related products this morning before my 11:40am meeting with my advisor. I’m meeting with him in regards to my class schedule next semester.

Oh yeah, and the other part of the story is that I just smoked some weed.

And yes, it’s still before noon. Not that that really matters at this point.

The meeting is no problem, I’m totally fine with interacting with people while I’m high at this point.

I didn’t used to be, I used to hate it slash suck at it. Luckily, for like two years straight, I continuously forgot that I hated it slash sucked at it because, well, I was high every time I realized those things.

So every time before a class or something I had to do, I’d be like “I should get high before I go” and then some other layer of consciousness of mine would be like “Yeaaaa!!!”

And then I’d smoke. And then I’d be high.

And then I’d be about to walk into class or whatever and be like “Why the fuck did I smoke? Going to class high isn’t fun!! It fucking sucks!!!”

And I repeated actions quite similar to that roughly 200 times since Freshman year, so now it doesn’t bother me at all. I kind of like it. It’s challenging to pretend to not be high when you’re high. It’s fun to pretend you care about all these humanly things.

I always wonder in what ways it alters my social encounters. For instance, what would have happened differently in this meeting I’m about to go to if I wasn’t high? The outcome likely would have been the same either way, but what details in our conversation would be different?

I’ll never effing know. And that pisses me the eff off.

I love writing when I’m high.
