The Most Eco-Friendly Ways to Get High

Estimated 3-minute read

Do you love weed? Do you love your planet? If so, this article is for you! Listen, we all know we’re doomed. This planet is dying and most of the time it feels like it really isn’t worth our time to try and do something about it. Well, that kind of mentality is only making this beautiful planet worse! We must avoid that! So, without further ado, here are the top five eco-friendly ways to get high.


Only Buy What You Need  

I know it can be extremely tempting (especially if you have the means) to have a large collection of vape pens, bongs, rolling papers, grinders and pipes, but this isn’t only hurting your wallet, it’s damaging the environment. If you really want to do yourself a favor (and our good ol’ pal the Earth), think about what your favorite way of consuming weed is, for example, by smoking a pipe, and get yourself one that will last a long time. This might be a big expense, quality has a price, but in the long run, I think you’ll thank yourself for not having to replace your pipe every couple of months because it broke or because its microplastics are killing your lungs and throat. A little goes a long way if you choose right! And remember, this doesn’t mean that you have to buy a new product right away! The most responsible way to go is to use what you have until it is no longer useful, dispose of it appropriately, and only replace it when you must.


Buy Organic Products

One of the most obvious ways to be a responsible stoner is to simply get organic cannabis. This is pretty straightforward, if the product you buy has less pesticides and other chemicals, it’s simply better for the environment, as well as for the people who produce it and obviously you, who consume it. 


Buy Local 

This is mainly because of the carbon footprint that shipping dynamics inevitably cause. It makes a lot of sense, if the product of your choosing had to travel a long way to get to you, its carbon footprint is high, whereas if it was locally grown its carbon footprint is lower. Obviously it is always wise to research the company’s principles, but this is a pretty easy way to go greener. Plus, as Marge Simpson once famously said, It’ll be good for the economy!


Be Mindful of The Products That You Use

This might be a hard one, especially if you’re fond of vape pens and their wasteful cartridges, but overall, here’s a few things you should look for when purchasing whatever products you need:

  • Compostable materials, and don’t forget to dispose of them accordingly!
  • Glass, cardboard or  cork packaging  – assuming you’ll be reusing or recycling it.
  • Products that use plastic reclaimed from the ocean or other recycled materials.
  • Purchase from and support companies that  care about the environment.
  • Hemp  materials, especially hemp papers to roll joints, which shouldn’t be hard to find.
  • Avoid constant consumption! Look for products with long-term warranties or lifetime warranties if possible.

Be Creative!

Remember that the best way to start helping the planet is by using what you already have, not by getting new stuff. If, for instance, your pipe came in really cool packaging, use that for something else in your home! Or if you ordered something online, you might want to use the box it came in to mail something else when you need to in the future. If you really want to lower your carbon footprint, just lower consumption habits. Do more with less.
