Well, stoners, you just finished your annual wake and bake but now you have some running around to do. I don’t know about you but I know that when I smoke you can definitely tell. Well ladies and gents, here are ways to avoid seeming stoned!
Tip #1: Visine!
Yes, the stereotypical stoner tool! If your eyes get bloodshot after you smoke then this is an essential for you. One bottle is only around $6, depending on where you shop, and the bottle lasts for months! Unless you are Seth Rogen and you are using your Visine every hour. Anyway, if you don’t have Visine, maybe wait to do your running around, or invest in some sunglasses!
Tip #2: Makeup!
For all you girl stoners (or boy stoners) out there, makeup is a great way to make your face look fresh bright and awake. Not to mention you can make your eyes look wider and more alert, which can help a lot if you are like me and your eyes get nice and droopy when you are stoned. This can also help hide any redness in your water line that the Visine can’t get to.
Tip #3: Become a Bath and Body Works Spokesmodel
Smoking anything can leave a smell on you, including cannabis. Sure, it doesn’t last as long as the smell of tobacco but it’s definitely there for at least a short period of time. The best way to avoid seeming stoned is to not smell like the cannabis you smoked. Obviously, you can throw on some deodorant and body spray but if you have time you can also; shower, brush your teeth, and change your clothes. This way you don’t risk drowning yourself in perfume, making it obvious you are trying to cover up some sort of stench.
Tip #4: Drink Water!
Staying hydrated is important in general but when you smoke cannabis you get some crazy cottonmouth. So staying hydrated is very important! With dry mouth comes stinky breath, slurring/tripping over words, and dry skin. So yes, definitely drink water! If you don’t like water, you can spice it up with fruits and vegetables! You can simply add any fruit to your water to give it some flavor.
Tip #5: Stay Stoned!
If you are a medical user like myself then you most likely want to do this anyway. If you are always stoned then people you are meeting for the first time will just grow to think that’s the way you are, and, if you are stoned all the time then, yeah, you aren’t lying. You are still being you. This may not be an option for everybody but for those of you who can take advantage of the opportunity to be stoned.
Tip #6: Dress to Impress
Yes, I know pajamas are super comfy, but when going out in public it’s pretty frowned upon for some odd reason. So, you are gonna want to get dressed. This doesn’t mean you have to wear a pencil skirt and blouse every day. A pair of jeans with a t-shirt is good enough. Obviously, if you aren’t leaving the house this doesn’t really apply because at home you have the excuse of “I’m making less laundry this way,” which, at least in my case, saves me money.
Well–there you have it, six tips to avoid seeming stoned. I hope these help you and I hope you enjoyed your read! Please be sure to follow @thehypepipe on Instagram and Twitter for some amazing Cannabis posts! And follow @thehypepipe on Soundcloud to listen to our Podcasts!
