Using weed and its related products on a regular basis can get expensive sometimes. Despite marijuana legalization efforts taking off across the Americas which have yielded positive competition among retailers resulting in the lowering of some costs, cannabis prices can still be pretty high especially when it comes to premium flower.

With that in mind, check out these few helpful hints and techniques for making the most out of your weed budget. If you like smoking marijuana out of a bowl, cornering your bowl can go a long way.

1. Boost the fatty acids in your diet – wait, what?

If you’re not getting enough Omega 3 in your diet, you’re not feeling the full effect of your cannabis. Our bodies would not be able to process all the therapeutic (and fun) effects from cannabis without a built-in system designed to interact with it. This is our endocannabinoid system, and you can keep it healthy by making sure your diet includes plenty of Omega 3. These essential fatty acids are used to produce cannabinoid receptors and endocannabinoids, two key components of the endocannabinoid system.

Fish is a key source. If you’re vegetarian or vegan, an Omega 3 supplement is advisable.

2. De-carb your flower

Smoking is actually one of the least effective ways of getting marijuana into your body. You can save a bunch of money by de-carbing and eating your flower.

When cannabis is digested rather than inhaled, more of it is converted to 11-Hydroxy-THC, a metabolite considerably more potent than THC.

Since a lot of us don’t have money to burn, especially when it comes to our recreational use, here are a few simple steps and lifestyle adjustments that can help you achieve a stronger high as well as conserve your weed supplies. Do you have any special techniques you use to conserve your stash?
