Wouldn’t it be great if you were regularly issued coupons to save money on weed? A little BOGO action maybe? Or 35% off your next purchase?
Of course, the world doesn’t work that way. At least, not yet.
But there are ways you can make your dollar stretch further when it comes to buying marijuana. Here are five now!
Think Like Costco
Most states will allow you to purchase up to one ounce of flower per day. Of course, unless you’re having a party, you probably don’t need a full ounce.
But much like buying that pillow-sized bag of Cheetos at Costco gives you more for less, buying an ounce (or even half an ounce) of flower at a time saves you money gram-for-gram.
So if you can splurge up front, look at it as an investment. Just be sure you have a proper air-tight container and a cool, dry, and dark location to store your stash. That’ll give it staying power.
Make Your Own Edibles
Perhaps you bristle at the thought of taking perfectly good marijuana and turning it into cannabutter for making edibles.
Here’s the thing – you don’t have to buy the premium stuff. Once you score a great cannabutter recipe, you can start exploring the lower shelves at your local dispensary for those value packs. This is the ideal way to save money on not only the marijuana, but on edibles as well!
Dig Into Some Popcorn (Buds)
If edibles are not your thing and you’re not willing to slum it by the lower shelves, consider popcorn buds. These are the B-grade buds that don’t have the lustrous appeal of their showier and larger A-grade cousins. But they’re a step up from the more mediocre product that’s better suited for being turned into butter.
Another nice thing about the popcorn buds is that their potency is typically on par with (or only slightly lower than) the A-grade buds of the same strain. Talk to your bud tender about best options.
Conserve Your Roaches!
If you’re the last person tugging on the joint that’s been passed around the room and you’ve gotten in the habit of just squashing that last inch of smoke, think about how much cannabis you’re wasting over time.
Back in the day when marijuana was much harder (and illegal) to come by, smokers treasured every last fleck of flower. As such, the roach clip was invented to allow them to smoke the joint right down to the last millimeter without burning their fingers.
So grab a roach clip. And the next time you get to the bottom of the joint, keep the roach in a metal or silicone container for the next day or some other time in the future. You’ll be glad you did when you don’t have the dough to hit the dispensary.
Switch to a Pipe to Save Money on Weed
Then again, you could ditch the joint altogether.
Once to the best ways hands down to conserve cannabis is by using glassware. A little pipe with a small bowl is completely affordable, reusable, and requires less cannabis than a joint or a blunt.
Plus, cleaning and rejuvenating them is way easier than with a one-hitter. Just sayin’.
