For the most part, an eighth jar of some good, quality weed will hit your pockets between $35—$45. For a one time purchase, that’s not too bad; but when you continuously purchase weed throughout the week or month, that cost can skyrocket. It’s a fact that we all try to ignore, but when you add up the hundreds of dollars you’ve spent on cannabis in a month, and it totals your student loan payments for multiple months, it’s hard to not think that your priorities are completely out of order.
Instead, it’s much better for your mental health to simply find better ways to spend your time and money in relation to your cannabis consumption.
Most dispensaries run weekly deals on each consumption method. For example, they’ll do bulk buy discounts on ounces of flower on Monday, then discounts on edibles on Tuesday. Across the industry, Shatterday is a popular Saturday discount day for concentrates. Regardless of your preferred consumption, I promise there’s a nearby store giving discounts on it. These are the best times to shop, because your dollar can go a lot farther, and the purchases will feel guilt-free.
The price of cannabis varies by market, as each state and country has its own costs based on supply and demand. Take an in-depth look at the price of an eighth where you live.
I’m literally moving from Washington to Oregon for this. Growing your own weed is the best way to save money. It’s like eating out every night versus cooking your own meals: you get to choose strains specifically, not just based on whatever the store has in stock; you know what materials were used to produce the plant, and in the long run, you’ll save hundreds, potentially thousands, of dollars on weed.
Mangoes contain a chemical compound called myrcene, which is also found in many cannabis stains. Studies suggest the myrcene in cannabis interacts favorably with the THC, helping extended its psychoactive effects. In theory, more myrcene in your body will help increase your high. Although the effects are not guaranteed, it doesn’t hurt to try! Worse case scenario you enjoy some delicious mangoes, best case scenario you enjoy some mangoes and get a little extra high!
Bubblers & Bongs – With the water filtering and cooling aspect, you can inhale a larger and smoother hit.
Whether you are a seasoned cannabis enthusiast or just starting out, you may find yourself wondering how to get higher when smoking weed. Sometimes this is a result of building up a tolerance, or maybe what you’re doing just isn’t giving you the high you were expecting. Whatever the reason may be, you shouldn’t miss out on enjoying that premium Washington-grown bud you picked up from Zips Cannabis to the fullest. That’s why we’ve compiled a list of tips and tricks to help you boost the intensity of your high!
7 – Take Your Time Inhaling
Using a grinder is good standard practice for getting the most out of your weed. Imagine if your microwave evenly cooked your Hot Pocket, instead of always leaving half of it frozen. Evenly ground up flower from a grinder will allow for neater packing, even burning, and subsequently a better high.
There are a variety of different types of weed. From differences in quality and potency, to the different strains (Indica, Sativa, & Hybrid). If you high is falling flat, it may be time to change up the type of weed you are smoking. We suggest checking out something like Phat Panda OG Chem or Green Crack Buddy Boy, both are Sativa’s with a high THC level.
The type of weed you smoke is only half the equation. The WAY you smoke makes a big difference on your high. If you’ve only been smoking joints for while, it may be time to something like a bong or vaporizer. However you are consuming your cannabis currently, if you can’t seem to get a good high going, try changing up your method. Some methods we suggest include:
Pipes – Iconic and timeless for a reason. Pipes don’t have any filtration process that could potentially trap THC.
If you make regular trips to the dispensary, then you know that it can start to become very costly. A careful examination of your finances could reveal that a significant portion of your budget is literally going up in smoke!
Depending on the state you live in, however, most MMJ cardholders should make significant savings at their local dispensary.
1) Split Up Quantities
Some cannabis strains only require basic growing knowledge and skills. Check out the ‘Growing’ section of our website, where you will find lots of practical tips and step-by-step grow guides. There are also hundreds of books online, so there is lots of information available on the subject out there.
Rather than buying your favorite flower at your local dispensary, why not purchase some cannabis seeds instead? This way, you can grow your weed at home. By growing your own weed, you could potentially make significant savings.
Be warned, though; not all dispensaries accept coupons. However, many do and they are a great way to buy high-quality weed at a discount price. It is highly advisable to call ahead and ask the manager whether they accept coupons at their dispensary or not.
