10 Clever Hacks That Make Life Easier
While you may consider yourself a seasoned smoker, we are positive that these clever hacks will add to your expertise and make your smoking experience easier and more enjoyable. Promise! Here are some of our most cherished clever hacks that make life easier.
1. Slow Burning Cigarettes
Even smokers with expensive vaporizers and other gadgets enjoy a good ‘ol fashion cigarette every now and again, but commonly, they can burn too quickly. Luckily, we found a remedy to this problem — the honey spliff technique. First, lightly cover a splif in some honey (or maple syrup) and roll it in freshly ground herb. From here, you can put it in the oven for 5 minutes (or until it starts browning), but this is optional. It will burn much slower and taste amazing. Glazed, yum!
2. Turn an E-Cigarette into a One-Hitter
To save some money, turn a cheap e-cigarette into a one-hitter. This hack involves taking off the end and the inner parts before giving it a clean and then packing it with some of your favorite goodness. This makes a great, discreet one-hitter, perfect for those on-the-go. This video tutorial will walk you through the process explaining each step — see how it’s done!
3. Hide Sensitive Material in Your Car
Hiding your sensitive material can be difficult and anxiety-inducing. If you are riding with classified materials in the car, listen to the advice from this ex cop.
If you can’t be bothered to watch the video, the main take away points are:
- Do not hide sensitive material in a visible or easily-accessible place, and never on the exterior of a vehicle.
- If you must get across town with those Top Secret materials, place them in a weird or hard-to-find crevice, preferably towards the middle of the vehicle and high up. This makes it difficult for outsiders to find. Every car is unique and has its own nooks and crannies so take the time to get to know your car, and get creative!
- Remember that for about every 15 minutes it takes for you to hide something, it will take about an hour for someone else to find.
4. Put Frozen Fruit in Your Drink for a Twist
Instead of using ice in your bring, try frozen fruit. It stays frozen much longer, and once the fruit starts to melt, it tastes amazing! This works best in alcoholic mixed drinks, and make sure you give your fruit time to properly freeze all the way through. Not doing so could mean a messy Mai Tai or tainted G&T.
5. Clean Up Spilled Ground Herbs
We have all been there. You’re carrying ground-up herbs to another room and you slip on a banana peel, or perhaps more believably, the dog walks under your feet and you throw it all over the place.
Now, you could call it a lost cause or you could grab a vacuum cleaner and a white sock. Put the sock over the end of the vacuum and proceed to vacuum the spill. The reminants will get stuck to sock and not get inhaled by the vacuum. When you’ve salvaged as much as you can, simply turn the vacuum off and let the herb fall back onto a cleaning plate. Use our next tip to get rid of all the hair and nasties that you may have picked up as well! (Hey, you never know, desperate times call for desperate measures.)
6. Use Static Electricity to Remove Hair
First, generate some static electricity either via a balloon or comb and hold it just above the hair to be removed. Any and all foreign objects (including hair) should become attracted and simply pull away from the herb!
7. Choose a Playlist Beforehand
Before you get into what you’re doing, make a playlist with some tunes that put you in a good mood. Don’t wait until you’re in your groove to choose a funky…well, groove. Most of the time, you either forget or you’re just way too lazy to get up and do it.
Songza is a great tool for this – there are a bunch of playlists any genre, just pick one! Alternatively, you could plan whatever you’re doing around designing a special playlist for the occasion and get stuck into it.
8. Set Down a Cigarette Mid-Roll
You’re sitting down after a stressful day and you decide to roll yourself a cigarette. However, midway through you get a call from your parents wanting to meet for dinner: before you can answer and feign sickness, you need to do something with your cigarette. The picture above sums up this hack far better than I ever could. Always be careful, though, and test your setup before relying on it!
9. How to Make a Sploof
A sploof is a homemade device that you blow smoke through to mask any smell and prevent particles from spreading around the room or car. You can use dryer sheets, or go a step further and pick up an aquarium filter refill from your local pet store. It contains mostly carbon and smell-neutralizing chemicals. Wrap up the carbon in some tissues, stuff it into a toilet paper roll, pop in a few dryer sheets, and you have a sploof that will last you a few weeks.
10. Light a Cigarette Without Burning your Nose
A common mistake people make when lighting a cigarette is looking downwards; this is a sure way to set your face on fire. To prevent losing your eyebrows, we recommend you aim your face upwards, instead!
