Whether you regularly smoke marijuana or you’re just an occasional user, costs can rack up quickly which isn’t ideal for anyone. It also doesn’t make a difference whether you’re using it for medical reasons or recreational use. Who wouldn’t want to cut down on their expenditure? Here are some top ideas for minimising costs.
1) Be wary of freeloaders
Social smoking is more fun for a lot of people, and maybe the only time you actually smoke weed. The problem is we all know that one person (or maybe more) who never seems to contribute but always hangs around to join in. If you can be less lax about sharing your stash you’re bound to save money.
2) Don’t burn, vape
Burning a blunt or a joint will inevitably cause some of your marijuana to get wasted, especially if you burn it for too long. Vaping preserves all the contents of what you put in, so your weed becomes more effective, plus it’s a less messy process and you don’t need to pay for wraps.
3) Buy at the right time
It’s not likely to work out best for your wallet if you only ever buy marijuana when you’re completely out. You might be led to making worse deals than you would have normally. Start a fresh purchase before you run out and stash the rest somewhere you’ll temporarily forget about it, then you’ll always have a little extra to fall back on, plus you can shop around for a better deal.
4) Smoke the roaches
Try saving up all the remains of your earlier joints or roll-ups and combining them into a blunt later. That way you’ll be able to get all the extra cannabis that may have been left behind the first time, sort of like a reward card where you pay for 9 smokes and your 10th is free.
5) Grow your own
It might be a good idea to buy marijuana seeds online (which tends to be easier and cheaper) so you can set up your own personal weed garden. This can work out much cheaper for some people, so it might be worth a try. It also means you can experiment with different seeds and plants to make the process more interesting.
