It’s not a great feeling to reach for your weed supply only to find out there’s very little left. How does this happen so quickly?

While a kief catcher won’t save you a lot of weed, it could add some dimensions to your smoking and provide with something you don’t usually use. Kief is the tiny, sticky crystals that cover the cannabis flower, which are usually potent in terms of effects. Kief is strong and can be used to cover a bowl or a joint, making the high much more powerful, which in turn, helps the joint or bowl last for longer periods of time. New to kief? Here’s a primer on how to use it.

Instead of waking and baking or sitting down at the end of the day and smoking your anxiety away, microdosing can help you obtain better results while also spreading out your weed. If you microdose with glassware, your results will be even better, giving you a more thorough understanding of the amount of weed you’re consuming and are going through.

As is the case with most purchases, the larger the order, the more you save. Of course, it’s very important to know how much you buy, that way you won’t have any weed going stale. Before purchasing in bulk, keep an eye on how much cannabis you spend and how long it takes to consume it. Once you have these numbers at hand, head over to your favorite dispensary and buy what you need. And to make sure none of that weed goes to waste, here are 8 Ways To Properly Store Marijuana For Freshness.

While making edibles is a weed-heavy project, depending on the way you consume them you might end up actually saving some money. Edible highs can last for longer than three hours, which is ostensibly longer than the high you could get from smoking.

Another tip that’s very helpful, especially when living through a pandemic, is smoking solo. While smoking weed with friends is fun, it’s very easy to lose track of how much you consume and the amount of money you spend. If you’re looking to save some weed and money, the best thing you can do is have an understanding of how much you smoke, try to spread it out as much as you can while still having fun, and shop accordingly.
