It’s the first summer that Canadians can enjoy weed legally, and what better way to celebrate than to get gloriously high – which is to say with gusto, joie de vivre and creativity. Fear not, friends. We’ve combed our brains for 10 summertime-friendly ideas. But remember that we’re all different and require various amounts to get optimally baked, so go slow.
1. Ice Bong cometh
The ice bong is a classic for good reason – it’s delicious and refreshing in the heat. And it’s not at all difficult to do, especially if you have a newer glass bong that catches cubes.
Just pile ice in the stem of your bong for nice cool rips – but keep an eye on the water level as your cubes melt!
2. DIY Moon Rocks
If you smoke frequently, you’ll have come across a Moon Rock, a dank nug dipped in hash oil and then rolled in kief. The best way to smoke a Moon Rock is to tear a piece off the whole rock and fire it up in a bong or pipe. Prepare to cough, and please, just do this on special occasions! Let’s not get ripped on Moon Rocks regularly.
3. Stoned by drone
You may recognize Maine resident Eric Mercer from Instagram. His genius drone-bong video went viral last year, delighting both stoners and droners alike. Amazing. But why, Eric? Why? “[It] was just a passion for drones, a passion for being creative and wanting to come up with cool, new things to show people on Instagram,” he told Marijuana Moment.
4. A little lube will do ya
These activities won’t make you feel high, but they’re ultra-relaxing ways to enhance your high if you choose to imbibe along with them.
Add some cannabis oil to your tub of hot water to relax the muscles. If you don’t want to use your precious THC-infused oil, hemp oil makes an incredibly rich moisturizer.
Or try a cannabis-infused lube for a slightly tingly, very horny time spent solo or with others. Again, if you combine some edibles or a few puffs with a topical, you may experience a new kind of high. Definitely recommended.
5. Supers and blowbacks
If you want to feel nostalgic – or like a teenager in the 90s, a decade which I hear is super hot right now – try a “super” or a “blowback.”
It’s perfect for a flirty park sesh with a friend, but requires some skill if you don’t want to end up burning you tongue.
Carefully put the lit end of a joint in your mouth and then make like a blowfish and blow the stream of smoke into your friend’s mouth. Make sure to go slow.
