People may have smoked more weed in 2020 than ever, but a big part of cannabis culture has been affected by the pandemic.
While weed continues to be used to help ease the pains of social distancing and lockdowns, the communal experience — smoking it with friends in homes or at a party — has no place in everyday lives right now.
Sharing cannabis is the most efficient way of sharing highs, usually by splitting a joint or by passing along a bong and pipe. While there’s no way to replace that experience for the duration of the pandemic, there are ways to navigate current hurdles while still staying safe. Here are some suggestions.
Virtual smoke sessions
This one is kind of predictable. Anyone who has had holiday or work parties on Zoom needs to know they can also have Zoom smoke parties. Everyone has their own opinions, of course, but some think the more rules for the meetings, the better, since it everyone will then be on the same frequency.
Make it clear to all involved that this is a smoke session, where people can smoke or vape whatever they want, but where consuming somehow is mandatory.
Sharing edibles is a pretty safe way to get high together. Something thoughtful would be to prepare a batch and then share them with a friend, dropping them off and eating them socially distanced. Or, heck, just sharing a batch even if friends on consuming on their own is equally cool.
