15 Marijuana New Years’ Resolutions You Should Be Making
New Years’ is right around the corner. You know what they say - it’s time for that “new year, new me” bullshit. Hey, I’m a sucker for clean slates like the next dude, but let’s be real: we could ALL be better stoners, right?
Here’s a list of marijuana-related New Year’s resolutions you should be making for 2017:
Clean your smoking accessories. An entire year of smoking will leave your paraphernalia with tons of old, moldy pot. This doesn’t just go for your pipe; this also applies to your bongs, vape pens, and grinders. If you don’t know how to clean it yourself, there’s a lot of specialty cleaning products out there to make the dank job of cleaning up much easier.
Give back to pro-marijuana organizations that have been working so hard to give you and your buds access to greens. You can easily find them online or in your area. Reach out and see how you can help them, either monetarily, or with your time.
If you’re a chronic smoker, try taking a short hiatus. Yes this is actually good for you because staying away from pot for a few days can actually boost your tolerance, which means you’ll be able to get high with a smaller amount.
Experiment with other ways of enjoying pot. If you’ve only been smoking for a long time now, try edibles, dabbing, or concentrates for a change. Give your lungs a break - besides you might just find your favorite new way of getting high!
Eat healthier munchies! I know how tempting it can be to reach for a slice (or 5) of pizza when you’re stoned AF. This coming year, opt for fruit or other healthy snacks that will nourish your body with a double serving of goodness: nutrients PLUS marijuana.
If you’re one of those potheads that never has anything to bring to the table when smoking with your buds, it’s high time you change that. Whether it be pot or some snacks for the munchies, stop being one of those annoying freeloaders and bring some goodies to share with your group.
Start getting educated about politics and how it’s affecting legalization. I know that politics can be annoying and frustrating, but the people in power are responsible for the joint you’re smoking right now - or the complete absence of any legal pot near you. It’s important that you know what’s going on not just in the country but also in your town and state. Make a resolution to always stay informed.
Man is not an island - and this definitely applies to the stoner community. It’s a community that loves to give and share, so if you haven’t been doing much sharing it’s time you do. Let your friends in to your supply, give them access to that super rare strain and make them feel special for a change.
Learn something new about marijuana. Try one of the many DIY projects, such as making your own hash oil or juicing cannabis. Go on a cannabis holiday. There are always so many things to learn about pot, so get out of your comfort zone and try something you’ve never done.
Exercise more! Pot can do wonders for your fitness routine. Countless people swear by the benefits of pot on their workout regimen. Whether you do yoga or crossfit, try jazzing it up with some pot before you work out.
Save money by finally growing your own pot. But before you do, read up on your state’s laws about growing. Growing your own supply is hard work but it’s one of the most fulfilling activities - plus you’ll always have some around and you won’t get dankrupt.
Try cooking with cannabis and discover the wonderful world of flavors and highs this can give you! Whether you like cooking or not, adding some pot to your food can make a world of a difference.
Last but not the least: be an advocate of all the benefits of marijuana. Given the right opportunity, share with other people in your community and online about how pot can change and improve lives whether or not you’re sick. Spread the word and help people get more educated about the benefits of marijuana.
