Got your hands on some primo bud? Very nice for you. But it isn’t enough just to be high….Ok actually it is.
But, for the ambitious types, there is no such thing as idle time, and there are plenty of productive or at least entertaining things that you can do when you are high.
Whether you are with friends or flying Han style (you know, Solo) there are plenty of really excellent ways to enjoy your THC.
Today, we will be talking about them.
Why? Because you are the discerning stoner. For you, it’s not enough to stare at the cat and wonder what it is thinking. No, you want the best things to do while high. And you know what?
You deserve them. So let’s not blow any more of your buzz on introductions. Read on for a list of the best things to do when stoned.
Fun things to do while high with friends
Stoners are social creatures by nature. Even the most basic wallflower blooms with the right strain of bud. Sure, smoking by yourself is just peachy, but it can also be fun to go out and see the world with a good group of people by your side.
So, what are the best things to do while high with your friends? Let’s take a look.
Yes, gravity (and couch lock) can be rough, but you’ll enjoy your high more if you get up and move once in a while. Pick a type of music that gets your foot tapping, crank up the volume, and let your body move to the beat.
Capitalize on your heightened awareness by learning and performing some Tai Chi. You’ll be more aware of your breathing, your heartbeat, and the flow of energy from head to toe and back again. That’ll make Tai Chi, and being high, more stimulating.
We never could hula hoop sober. But after a few tokes on an Honest Blunt, we could damn near turn pro (if that were a thing…which it should be). There’s something extremely satisfying about finding the rhythm in your hips that keeps that hoop spinning.
Add in a bit of your favorite music, and the experience will be transcendent.
Go To The Circus
Sure, you probably got your fill of the circus when you were a kid, and now it’s nothing special. But the circus can be seriously mind-blowing again if you hit your bong first.
Don’t have a circus near you? Really, anything with a lot of movement and flashy colors will work (e.g., Cirque du Soleil, Stomp). And if you really have no other options, stick in The Greatest Showman and get your fix that way.
Puff Pass and Paint
Marijuana & THC is great for activating the creative zones in your mind. Maybe you can’t paint with a clear head, but you think about giving it a try when you are feeling lifted.
If you live in a state with legal recreational marijuana, you are in the perfect position to get your paint on.
Puff Pass and Paint was one of the first marijuana-infused art classes and it is one of the most fun things to do while high with friends. Whether you are with a large group of people or entertaining friends who are in town, this is a one-of-a-kind experience and you’ll even wind up with a neat little souvenir when it’s all said and done.
Puff Pass and Paint Locations
Right now, Puff Pass and Paint has a number of locations across the United States where cannabis is recreational.
You’ll find classes available in:
- Los Angeles
- San Francisco
Go to the Movies
Going to the movies has always been one of the most fun things to do when stoned, but that has perhaps never been truer than it is right now.
Just think about the movies that come out these days. Big blockbusters with stellar effects and out of this world backgrounds and characters.
You don’t even have to be a geek to really enjoy Star Wars or the Avengers when stoned.
It’s like movies are made for stoners these days, so get lifted, and get going.
Go on an Outdoor Adventure or Hike
Movies are great, but they can’t compare to a rewarding experience with mother nature, right? There is actually a scientific element to it. Interacting with nature can reduce anxiety, and even lower your blood pressure, making it a great way to enjoy your afternoon and improve your health.
There are loads of different things to do with friends while high outdoors. Fishing, hiking, a nice trip to the park.
If you live in Denver, you might think about hitting the slopes or going on a scenic mountain hike.
Live in Portland? Try going kayaking down Willamette River. It’s a great way to experience nature, while also getting a majestic look a the cities skyline.
Seattle? Go on over to Olympic Sculpture Park. Take in the scenery, and get away from the hustle and bustle of the city for a while.
Oakland? Maybe you want to head on over to Lake Merrit, or the surrounding parkland. Great for hikes, or even for a little bit of canoeing.
And of course, our pals in Brooklyn will want to head over to Coney Island and take in the boardwalk and all of the other fun activities.
Last but not least, Boston! If you live in the Boston area you really can’t beat the Kingdom Trails. A truly majestic place to go biking and experience panoramic views of mother nature.
And what about the people in the rest of the country? Perhaps folks living in places where cannabis isn’t quite so legally accessible?
If you don’t have the pleasure of living in one of these green-friendly communities, there are still plenty of different ways to experience nature. It can be as simple as finding a nearby park and going for a little walk.
With the right strain, even the little things can be an adventure.
Play Marijuana Games
Marijuana games are truly a great way to bring people together. They are fun, usually free, and they can lead to legitimate bonding if done right. Here are ten games that you really should try.
Never Have I Ever
Same way the game has always been played, but with one twist. When you have done the “never have I ever” action, you take a hit of bud.
Exactly like beer pong except that you commemorate successful shots with a toke instead of a drink. It’s much better.
Hold Your Smoke
For hold your smoke to work best, you need a fairly sizable group of people. It’s a simple game. Circle up, and start puff, puff, passing. The idea is to hold your smoke until the joint comes back to you.
If you don’t manage it, you’re out.
Jenga with a Twist
Just like regular Jenga, except the pieces have instructions written on them. Each time you remove a block, you read the inscription and do what it says. Generally, the instructions are smoking-related.
Cards Against Humanity
Technically this doesn’t have to be a cannabis game, but a little bit of green fortification will help to open up your creativity.
The Quintessential Drinking Game. But With Cannabis
One of the most prominent drinking game is to watch a movie, and take a shot anytime characters use a certain phrase. Naturally, this is a game that works well with pot as well.
For added fun, try watching a stoner flick while you do it.
Marijuana Related Board Games
There are lots of pot-related board games out there that will make a perfect accompaniment that might help you make the most of your gathering.
Non-Marijuana Related Board Games
The game doesn’t have to be about pot to be fun. Even Monopoly can be a good time when you’ve got good friends and good kush around. But good luck choosing a banker.
Would You Rather
The questions will start to get pretty creative. You can count on that.
A little bit of pot will make Twister feel a whole lot less awkward.
Hey, the munchies will creep up on you sooner or later. When they do it will be time for some cannabis cooking.
There are actually cannabis cooking classes available in many cities, which will be a great way for you and your friends to enjoy a tasty, fun common experience.
And of course, there is also plenty of merit in having a good old fashioned stoned conversation. Pot can bring out deep thoughts, so let them flow freely, and point them in the direction of a good buddy.
A cannabis high can help you pour over your thoughts in profound contemplative silence. Your sense of time is often changed while under the effects of cannabis and for some this stretching of time makes it easier to think about what’s on your mind, or perhaps about nothing at all.
Get in a comfy chair put on some quality headphones and pick out an album that means something to you. Most people agree there is something better about listening to music when you are stoned. The part of our brain that draws relations between ideas becomes stimulated when we’re high, and music is packed with metaphors and patterns.
This can be tricky but rewarding. I find that while high I prefer nonfiction to fiction. Although a short read like a pulp adventure novel can come alive with a joint in hand, thicker selections may seem to drag on and erode your attention span. Some people get lost in a thick book though, and a bowl full of good pipe-weed can help you dive even deeper.
The ancient art of a good discussion can be lively and enchanting when everyone is puffing away. Enthusiasm about the topic is likely to reach a thunderous tone and beware of getting off track. Cannabis helps you draw relations between subjects and dulls your sense of verbal memory so you can often forget what you were talking about after going off on a tangent.
But a conversation that goes all around the world can be fun and therapeutic. If you are having a more serious chat with a friend, then it may help for only you to be medicated so they can give more focused feedback.
