The only thing better than smoking weed is smoking weed with your friends!
So, what do you need to consider when putting together a great group smoking experience?
It can be intimidating hosting an event, especially with the wide range of weed accessories out there - special jars for weed, a variety of bong styles and materials, bong accessories - where do you start?
At A Greener Leaf, we’ve decided to make things a bit easier for you. Here are some helpful tips to consider when planning a group smoking session.
When putting together a group smoke, the most important thing is the people!
These could be old friends, experienced weed smokers, or complete newbies. Depending on who you’re inviting, you’ll want to take some different things into account.
If any of your friends are new to smoking weed, you’ll want to keep things pretty low key. Just let them relax and smoke at their own pace, offer them passes on the bong, but be sure not to pressure them into smoking more than they want.
How to Choose the Right Type of Bong
Naturally, with a group smoking session, you’re going to want to use a bong.
If your guests are new to smoking weed, you’ll want to pick a bong that is simple and straightforward, so you can skip the fancy bong accessories for this one.
When hanging with weed aficionados, you can really kick things up a gear.
Encourage them to bring their own favorite accessories so that you can try them. Dab rigs, edibles - nothing is off the table. This is a great way to discover more fun ways to try weed.
You may also want to consider how clumsy your guests might be. If they are prone to dropping things or knocking them over, it's probably a good idea to avoid your fanciest glass bong this time. The modern bong is a work of art, and the last thing you want is for it to end up broken. Consider a silicone bong or something less breakable.
Cultivating an Atmosphere
An important part of any group smoking session is putting together a chilled-out environment. It’s much easier to plan this in advance rather than jumping into action at the beginning of a session. Consider the following:
- Music - Any music that you love is great, but slower paced music can be better for chilling out. Ensure that your tunes are quiet enough to be talked over.
- Entertainment - What’s better than kicking back and watching your favorite show while high? If you feel like your session isn’t kicking off the way that you had in mind, it's great to have some backup entertainment ready so that you can watch something together.
- Food / Drink - Snacks and drinks are an important part of any group smoking session! Make sure you ask for dietary requirements beforehand so that you can provide things that everyone can enjoy.
- Ask for suggestions - Whether you’re watching videos or listening to music, make sure that you are playing things that all your guests like.
As always, consider the personalities of the people coming. Are any of your guests prone to anxiety or social uneasiness? If so, you’ll want to put extra effort into cultivating a comfortable environment.
