Cooling cannabis tips to beat the heat this summer

Aug 10 2018, 4:22 pm

There’s no arguing anymore whether humans have f*cked up the climate something fierce.

It’s like 30 degrees out every day, black widow spiders are probably summering at our educational institutions, and wearing antiperspirant is more of a nod to hygiene than remotely useful. Instead of literally melting into a puddle à la Alex Mack and proceeding to drown in yourself, try these tips to cool off and make it to the end of summer in solid form.

Put ice in the bong

An oldie but a goodie: Drop some ice cubes into your bong water for cool, throat-soothing hits all day. Some people claim that filling the bong with only ice and no water is the way to go, they are wrong, but try it if you prefer. Bonus if you can find a way to incorporate a tiny cocktail umbrella (without blinding yourself) and/or maraschino cherries.

 Make potsicles

A refreshing treat that gets you nice and mellow is the perfect (and most delicious) way to cool off. This one is easy, even for the culinarily challenged among us.

Just pick a liquid (juice, almond milk, kefir, whatever) toss in something flavourful (fruit, chocolate chips, cinnamon, etc) and add some cannabis oil, butter, or even candy.

You’re going to want to mix in something fatty as well, if you want to get the most out of your “active ingredients” (THC is fat soluble, guys). Blend in almond butter or full-fat yogurt, Nutella, or whatever else you can think of. Basically just make a smoothie with stuff you like, and freeze that shit in popsicle moulds. Wait a few hours til frozen and consume.

Tip: Pour liquid into moulds and then add cannabis ingredient to each individual popsicle for a more consistent dose.

Pitch a tent around the AC and hot box it

You’ll need a tent with entrances on either end, and AC unit or central air vent, and some masking tape. Easy.

Tape one entrance around the AC or vent, ensuring that the tape forms a seal so that all the cold air is forced through the tent. Enter through the other end, zip it up, and hotbox that shit.

Don’t set the tent on fire. If you’re accident prone, bring one of those little kitchen fire extinguishers in with you.

Remember that episode of the Simpsons where they tape a tent entrance (tentrance?) around the fridge? It’s like that, but it won’t destroy your appliances.

Stay cool!
