Ways to Stretch your Weed

Make Your Weed go Further

Cannabis Saving Tips on a Budget

By Macey Wolfer

While unlimited money and weed may be a common fantasy, the reality is that most of us encounter times where we need to do a little penny-pinching. Maybe you’re skipping the latte shop this week and bringing your own coffee to work, or taking the bus to save on gas.

Whatever it is, if you’re in a tight spot with money but don’t want to sacrifice cannabis, you’re not out of luck. Even if you’re not on a budget, making the most of your stash and not wasting it is always a good idea.

Bulk order of Weed

Buy weed in bulk when possible 

I know you’re on a budget, so it may make more sense to stop by a dispensary and pick up a small amount rather than stocking up. But does this small purchase mean you’ll be back again in two days? Does it really add up to saving you any money?

If you can afford to get larger amounts and ration them out across a period of time, you’ll be saving more money in the long run. If you have a pill organizer or similar contraption, you could easily set aside daily amounts and make yourself stick to it.

Skip the joints 

If you tend to roll up your weed into joints or other rolled items, you’d be doing yourself a favor by cutting this out while you’re trying to conserve. Not only do joints continuously burn, allowing the flower to burn away even when you aren’t smoking, but they also tend to be filled with more weed than other options.

You don’t have to say goodbye to joints forever, but try to cut back on the amount you consume if you’re trying to save money and bud, or temporarily switch to a different method of consumption.

Use a quality grinder 

Picking apart your stash with your fingers is not an efficient way to “grind” your weed and almost guarantees some of the most potent parts will end up all over your fingers instead of in your bowl. 

Using a quality grinder will not only eliminate this problem but catch some kief for you as well. When you’re running low on weed, you can scoop some of the kief you’ve collected over time and cut back on the amount of fresh bud you add. 

Cut your intake back 

It may not be ideal, but if you’re running low on weed and you’re on a budget, a logical response would be to consume less. You don’t have to stop entirely, but if you have a tendency to wake and bake, or if you’re go-to when you get off work is to light up, it’s an excellent time to practice breaking the cycle. 

If you usually start consuming around 4 pm, try to push it back just a couple of hours. You might surprise yourself. 

Mint to fill with cannabis

Add other items to the mix 

First, let me say you should not just add whatever you find to your weed to make it go further. Smoking random things can be extremely dangerous. However, marijuana is not the only smokeable substance! 

For example, lavender and mint are two plants that can be sprinkled in with your cannabis to fill up the bowl more while providing unique flavors and possibly adding an extra element of relaxation. 

The bottom line 

Whether you want to consume less for personal reasons or you’re just trying to get through the week on a budget, making a stash last longer can always be beneficial. 

Of course, there’s no magic way to make your weed last longer. The idea here is that you consume less without feeling like you’re depriving yourself.
