Stretch Your Stash: How To Make Weed Last Longer

Whether you are low on money, cannot find meds, or are unable to visit a cannabis dispensary during these times, you are probably looking for ways to stretch your stash. Fortunately, conserving doesn’t always mean not being able to enjoy still. If you find yourself in need of trying to extend the life of your stash, you came to the right place. Check out our tips below for stretching your stash! For this particular article, we will be looking specifically at just your stash of herb and how you can extend its life when getting more is simply out of the question.

How to Make Your Weed Last Longer: Crafty Ways to Stretch Your Stash

1. Change it Up

Change It Up

When you are looking to conserve your herb, one of the best things that you can do is change the way you smoke. For many, they enjoy toking joints; however, if you are consuming primarily by yourself, the majority of your weed may just be going up in smoke. To help conserve your weed, it may be best when smoking alone to instead smoke from a glass bowl. Glass bowls will not only help you save your herb, but they also tend to provide a much more pleasing flavor than joints. You also have the added benefit of being able to scrape your bowl for resin later on when times get tough!

2. Practice Selective Smoking

How you consume isn’t the only aspect you should consider when trying to save your weed. When you smoke is also very important. If you are looking to make your stash stretch as long as possible instead of waking up and smoking first thing, try going about your day for a bit and accomplishing a few things on your to-do list. Once you feel that you have been productive and you’re able to sit down in a peaceful environment and enjoy your consumption take a break for a toke.

If you are anything like me, you often find yourself smoking while multitasking, and this, unfortunately, doesn’t provide you with the most benefits possible. If you can go long periods without smoking, it may be advisable only to consume first thing in the morning and then again at the end of the day. If you insist on smoking joints rather than bowls, I would highly advise only doing so once or twice a day when you can really enjoy it and always save your roaches!

3. Be Sure to Store Your Herb Properly

proper cannabis storage

When trying to stretch your stash, it is also essential to think about how you are storing your herb. If you are storing your herb in a plastic bag in your nightstand drawer as many have done for years, chances are your stash has already started to deteriorate in potency as well as flavor and is likely becoming dry. This, in return, causes your herb to burn much faster, not to mention you are missing out on vital cannabinoids and terpenes. By storing your stash properly, you are ensuring that when you consume, you are getting the most out of your bud! To learn more about how to properly store your stash, check out this article.

4. Take Micro-Tolerance Breaks

If you are starting to run low and you fear that it may be some time before you will be able to stock up once again, it may, unfortunately, be time to think about a cannabis tolerance break. A tolerance break, however, does not mean that you have to stop smoking for days on end. It could merely mean smoking one day and not the next.

Let’s face it while this is never the preferred option for extending your stash; anything is better than being completely out. I don’t know about you, but I would much rather know, that if I don’t smoke today that I will be able to tomorrow rather than smoking whenever I want, running out and not knowing when I’ll be able to get more!

The pandemic has changed everything. A month back, I started realizing that I was running short of stash, and that isn’t working, and I have to manage this. I ran out of stuff several times and was unable to arrange, which caused me irritation, so I decided to manage my timings and some self-efforts. Now I smoke a half joint in the morning and keep the other half save for later. For me starting a day with my joint is something energizing, and I can’t sleep without having a dose at night. So I have divided time and consumption so that it could last more.
