1 ounce = 28 grams
1 "half" = 14 grams
1 "quarter” = 7 grams
1 "eighth" = 3.5 grams
A gram is enough for 2-5 joints, or 4-8
bowl-packs, depending on the size of the joint/bowl.
How to Clean Out your Piece
- Isopropyl (rubbing) alcohol
Mix some salt into the rubbing alcohol (the
amount isn’t a big deal, just put in however much you think makes sense). Pour
this mixture into your piece, and shake for a few minutes. Then, let it sit
with the solution still inside. After a few more minutes, pour this out. Unbend
the paperclip and scrape out any remaining resin. All of this is done over a
sink, of course.
How to smoke in your room and not get
(How to make a spoof - Wait till a
roll of toilet paper runs out, grab it, go down to the laundry room and grab
seven or eight dryer sheets, rubber band one of them on the top so it covers
the hole, then crumple the rest up and push them against the covered hole in
the toilet paper roll. You blow the smoke into the non-covered hole, and it
comes out smelling like fresh laundry =D.)
- Incense or a scented candle
- Another candle
- Towel or shirt
- Air sanitizer (ozium) or deodorant
- Fan to blow smoke out of a window (optional)
- Common sense
A bowl or bong is much preferred over
joints because joints and blunts let large amounts of smoke escape into the
Lock the door. Put the towel down against the gap between the door and
the floor to prevent smoke from getting out. This isn’t always necessary,
depending on where you’ll be smoking in relation to the door. Have all your
supplies with you so you won’t have to make several trips and arouse suspicion.
Light the incense or scented candle. This is not necessary, as you can eliminate most
of the smell with other techniques, and even a bad idea if your parents are
suspicious of your smoking.
Light the second candle. This candle will be used as a flame supply.
Instead of using the noisy flint on disposable lighters to light the lighter
and causing suspicion, push the butane release (red button) and hold the
lighter up to the flame to light it. If you have a fan blowing out your window,
make sure to turn it on now.
Commence the combustion of the plant
matter. After you take your hit,
quickly put your palm (or flat object such as a rectangular lighter or a
quarter) over the bowl (packing only half a bowl should keep you from burning
yourself). This will put out the ember and keep any smoke from escaping (take a
small hit after it goes out to clear any leftover smoke). If you need to cough,
do so into a towel or pillow to muffle the sound.
Exhale into the spoof. Don’t forget!! This is probably the single most
effective way to reduce the smell.
Repeat until you are high.
Spray. Ozium is much more effective than something like axe because it
actually gets rid of the smell, rather than just masking it like spray on
deodorants. Don’t go overboard with this, just a quick one to two second shot
is all you need. If you used a towel, you can wave this around to spread the
spray around the room. Empty the bowl either out the window or down the sink.
Enjoy the rest of your night!
Don’t blow into the pipe/bong.
Don’t drink the bong water.
Don’t smoke with people you don’t like.
Don’t bring it to school.
Don’t drive while high.
Don’t trust dealers you don’t know.
Don’t consent to any search.
Don’t lie to a cop.
Don’t act like you know when you don’t.
Inhale into your lungs, not just your
Hold your hit for as long as you can.
If you are passed a lighter along with the
pipe, pass it along when you pass the pipe.
Use eye drops (Visine, Cleareyes, or, my
personal favorite, Rhoto V)
Deseed and destem your stash.
Smoke bowls/bongs more often than
joints/blunts (more economical).
