Stretching Your Weed Budget

Using weed and its related products on a regular basis can be an expensive proposition. Thankfully, marijuana legalization efforts are quickly spreading around the country which have in turn created a market for positive competition among retailers thereby resulting in the lowering of some costs. Unfortunately weed prices can still be pretty cost prohibitive for many folks this early in the game, especially when it comes to premium flower and similar products. Since most of us donโ€™t have money to burn, especially when it comes to something like recreational weed use, here are a few simple tips and tricks that can help you achieve a stronger high all the while conserving your supplies and making the most out of your weed budget.

For starters, make sure that you are buying the right kind of weed for you. Are you hoping to chill out at home with a movie? Are you looking for a creative and energetic boost? Something in between? Indicas will help you mellow out and relax but on the other hand sativas will get you going. Then of course, there are the numerous hybrid strains to take into account which can at times be the best of both worlds when it comes to their effects. Figuring out what you are after will help you decide on what strains will provide the maximum desired effects while using as little of the product as possible. Mix and matching different strains also helps to keep you from getting used to any one in particular.

When you eat a mango, the myrcene and terpenes enter the bloodstream immediately. These terpenes will then act to trigger the THC from the weed thereby significantly enhancing your high. Now you can enjoy a healthy summertime snack that will make your buzz that much better! Cannabis edibles are also a good idea as they tend to have a longer lasting high due to how they are metabolized by the body. However due to their long lasting effects, they may not necessarily be the best of choices for marijuana enthusiasts that are looking for a more subtle and subdued cannabis experience.

Lastly and probably the most efficient way to make our stashes last is to take a break every once in a while. Taking regular tolerance breaks will help your body readjust to your reduced cannabis intake allowing for you to feel the results and get high using smaller amounts of herb than usual. Tolerance breaks will also help prevent any potential dependence on weed which while not nearly as bad as an alcohol tolerance, a high cannabis tolerance will more often than not leave you packing the bowl or rolling up blunts more times than you’d probably like and making what’s left of your stash disappear.

Have you tried any of these tips before? Do you have any special tricks or techniques that you use to help conserve your stash and maximize your high?
