Nothing can make new experiences more memorable than weed. That’s why a growing number of green travelers carry cannabis with them during scenic road trips and outdoor concerts.
Read on to find out how you can make the most out of your weed sessions while traveling.
1. Don’t store your weed next to your insurance and registration
In case you get pulled over, the last thing you want to do is accidentally pull out your stash. Even if you didn’t commit any violations, cops could become more suspicious if they see weed. The good part is, you don’t have to go out of your way to hide your stash, since it’s legal to transport pot in the state of Colorado (as long as it’s not in an open case).
2. Bring a RollUhBowl
Taking bong rips is a luxury when you’re on the road. Most people resort to using a pipe for hands-off smoking. With the RollUhBowl, you can bring another option with you: a compact, foldable bong designed for cannabis enthusiasts on-the-go. The device is made out of “100% Grade VI Healthcare Silicone,” and comes with an easy-to-use stem that ejects the load when it gets ashy. The RollUhBowl is easy to clean- simply throw it in the dishwasher and walk away.
3. Use a hard case to preserve your buds
Cannabis flowers are sensitive, and the last thing you want to be doing is smashing or nudging it around your back pocket while driving. By the time you reach your destination, all of the juicy trichomes would have fallen off the buds. Storing cannabis in a hard case is an effective solution to this issue, because it allows you to keep your stash in tight places while preserving the natural elements of the flower. With a hard case, you could store your weed in a travel bag, seat cushions or stuffy side compartments.
4. Pre-roll your joints
Planning ahead is a key principle when traveling and indulging in marijuana. This heavily applies to individuals who love smoking joints on the road. To cut your smoke sessions in half, pre-roll a day’s worth of pot before leaving your home. When you reach your destination or before calling it a night, pre-roll another set for the next day (highly recommended for “wake-and-bakers”). Remember to follow the FIFO (First-In, First-Out) method to make sure you’re not left with anything stale.
5. Don’t smoke all of your stash on the first day
Traveling is an exciting, eye-opening experience, so don’t ruin it by smoking all of your weed on the first day. To keep your stash volume under control, try mixing up your high with edibles, drinks and strips. Relying solely on flowers during your trip could deplete your stash quickly!
“As always, it is best to consider ‘safety first’ when traveling. Make a personal safety plan and, if you smoke marijuana for any reason, know the laws regarding its use,” said David Hoffman, host and travel producer.
