I want to start a series of comprehensive threads dealing with methods of eliminating the chance of being caught with that sweet skunky smell in your area. Subjects of focus include: smoking in your home, car, and going to work. I've always wanted this posted because people are more afraid of the consequences of getting caught with the substance than the side effects of the substance itself. Cannabis is a soft drug, and has many medicinal purposes. This guide is meant to help those who benefit from the use of cannabis, and who don't want to be punished for getting caught for using it. SMOKING AT HOME ===================================== If you live with people that oppose indoor smoking, then the rule of thumb is usually to wait until they go out, but if this not a reality then follow this guide: 1. Ensure that you pick a place that is not heavily travelled, and that you have good control over the ventilation (windows, fans, vents) and security (locks are preferable on the doors). 2. As for method of usage, I would rate them from highest to least (in terms of my interpretations of heat ) in this order, along with skills/materials necessary: 7. Blunt - giant amount of smoke produced, dense smoke, lots of smoke loss from blunt. 6.Joint - there is unnecessary smoke loss from the burning cannabis cigarette, a lot of dense smoke is produced in the room, what to do with roach and ashes, have to know how to roll a joint. 5.Hot knives - need access to a heating element, hard to operate for beginners, hard to operate stoned, can hurt yourself 4.bong - gets you really ripped, produces a lot of smoke (unless you ghost), produces smoke from lit bowl, requires water. 3.waterfall/pale/bucket - needs constant water supply (unless it is provided with a pale apparatus), need to make or have bowl, need to make bottle into waterfall/pale, action is easy to do, produces a lot of smoke (unless you ghost). 2.parachute/chute/lung - needs no water supply, need to know how to make chute, need to make/have bowl, produces a lot of smoke (unless you ghost). 1.pipe/one hitter/dug out/steam roller - usually portable devices, really easy to use, no possibility of mess ( ie with water), easy to measure dose ULTIMATE METHOD: VAPOURIZER - is the most efficient method of cannabis inhalation, produces very little scent by itself, only downfall is access to a heating outlet/electric outlet and they're usually not portable. Personally I use a 2 L plastic tube, it's about a foot high and I use a 1 L evian bottle for waterfalls. I created a bowl using 2 11/36 sockets and it's wicked. 3. Tools of the Trade: Sploof - cardboard toilet/paper towel roll stuffed with fabric softener sheets, you then place one other sheet on the other side and secure it with a rubber band. These work fairly well by themselves, but are a tool to avoiding heat. They make the smoke smell somewhat like the scent of the fabric softener. Fans - blow the smoke into them so that it is no longer a thick cloudy mass, they help circulate the air and the spray in the room. Ghosting - holding the smoke into your lungs and breathing out no smoke. This helps to remove the smoke from the room. Windows - when a window is present, is it usually best to blow smoke out of the window, as it eliminates the smoke in the room. Air Sprays - these are your Febreze/Axe/aerosol products that help make the air smell better, spray them into the fans, and all about the general area. Don't spray TOO much though. Also, if needed spray on yourself. Visine/Clear Eyes/Eye Drops - make sure to get the original/red eye formula...works wonders! Using a technique that combines all of these tools will ensure success in the technique of indoor smoking. 3. If there is a lock on the room of the door, lock it and if possible, place a towel at the base of the door (it is up to the individual to judge the level of heat). 4. Use a method that is the most appropriate for your environment. Be sure to place all of the remains in a safe place for disposal that will not be seen by anyone. Make sure to always maintain your method of use, and become the best you can be at it. 5. Use a combination of the tools of the trade, as well as eat/drink anything, as it will relieve the munchies and the cottonmouth. 6. Always ensure that after the session has ended, you air out the place as best as you can. 7. Enjoy your cannabis buzz. Please comment and add suggestions.
