Tips and Tricks for Joint Smokers
Okay as promised in my first blog, here we are! Today I’m going to give you my top tips/tricks/hacks for smoking joints!
In no particular order:
Yall ever smoking in the lounge room then “OH FUCK I dropped a ball of ash on the couch :/”? Well.. do I have a cool hack for you! So all you gotta do to pick up the ash (without it cascading in on itself and staining everything), is wet the tip of your finger with some water (Or you can be gross like me and just use the water that’s always on hand – spit) then with your *moist* finger, you touch *ever so lightly* the top of the ash ball and VOILA! The whole ball lifts up cleanly.. but then you obviously gotta put it in the bin or wipe it off on your ashtray or something.. okay so now we get to the part of the hack where you start to question.. is this a hack or like… just moving mess elsewhere? But to that.. I would say “well I’d rather have ash on my finger than on my couch bro.”
This one is such a time saver and also costs less than the gadgets they sell online for filling a cone. Buy a funnel – fill don’t spill ;) Super cheap to get from Woolies or Coles, I got a set of 4 different sized plastic funnels for like $6! We use the funnel regularly enough for it to be a full time staple on my “smoking tray” (Blog post here).
Okay so this one is a lot like the funnel – so when I’m filling a cone – using the funnel- I will put in a little herb, then I need to pack it down to create a consistent density, so instead of buying a wooden (or whatever material) poker, I use a chop stick!! Its great cuz it has a pointy end where you can push little bits of herb down then also the thicccc end to push down a ton more! So I’d for sure recommend adding a chopstick to your rolling accessories!
So I dunno about you guys, but I have an alarm on my phone for 4:19pm.. now for bong users that’s a ton of time to pack a bowl, but if your fancying a little jonty (a joint), 1 minute might not seem long enough to roll up! Well, well, well if you thought that then.. fair enough haha but it is possible! Just need two little hacks!! Hack one – Rolling machine! Hack two – prerolled tips! My personal best time is 44 seconds hehe.
Nothing worse than having to relight a joint cuz you maybe rambled on with your long winded story a little too long.. this hack is great for some but may prove problematic for others.. So if your joint is almost out but still a little lit, then instead of inhaling super aggressively to get it going again– GENTLY blow instead of inhaling *note the caps lock on GENTLY – cuz if you’re too aggressive with your blow, and your joint is too loosely packed… then you might just lose your load …Another plus with this hack is it saves you taking in that extra butane from the lighter! Unless you’re a fellow high class smoker, and only use hemp wick!
So I haven’t seen anyone doing this online but maybe its just cuz I didn’t even try to look HA! So now I can just tell myself that this is some original content never before seen!! YAY! Instead of twisting the top of your coned joint I fold it in three folds.. how me gonna describe this… so you push down a side.. then you divide the remaining paper in 2 and fold half of the remaining paper down so then you should have a little triangle left to fold down so the top is all flat now. I’ve found that if you fold down the top in this 3 triangle technique, the paper burns a lot more even all the way down preventing laddering (some people call this canoeing – basically when the joint burns unevenly)
So speaking of laddering – little hack for when the unfortunate event does happen – So I’m not even gonna pretend to say I use water for this hack – lets be real we using spit again folks. Wherever the joint is burning faster/lower than everywhere else, you put a little spit on the outside of the paper so it slows it down where its burning too fast – leaving the rest of the joint to catch up.
AAAAAAAAlrighty then, that concludes my joint hacks for now – If I come across or think of any new ones I’ll be sure to share - cuz sharing is caring everyone!! If you guys have any tips, tricks or hacks for smoking joints please please please leave them down below cuz knowledge is power guys.. 😜
