If you’ve visited our Journal before, you might have picked up on the fact that we’re pretty into cannabis. And like most people who love something, we want to share our love with others by bringing them together so that we can all enjoy ourselves together.
That’s why we’ve put together this list of fun things to do while high with your pals. These are some of our favorite ways to spend time with friends (and make new ones!) when we’re all being silly and having a good time in our own unique way.
20 Fun Things To Do While Stoned
Some days call for a cozy sesh at home, while others require an outdoor adventure! Either way, have fun with your pals.
1) Have a Tea Party
If you don’t have a tea set at home, hit up a thrift store and spend a few bucks on a quirky, unique set just for the occasion. Bake a few cookies or pot brownies as snacks, and invest in a few different varieties of loose-leaf tea. Black, green, rooibos, rose, nettle, dandelion, and jasmine are some of our favorites. Keep the weed theme rolling and make weed tea! It’s a great way to use up shake and weed stems and add even more herbal flavor to your teapot.
2) Try an Escape Room
Escape rooms are a great way to have fun with friends. To be clear, they’re not easy—they’ll challenge you and test your wits—but they’re also not impossible to escape in under an hour. There are many different themes and difficulty levels for every type of player, so whether you want something easy or something complex, there will be something for you!
3) Picnic at the (Skate)Park
When the weather allows, a picnic in the park is a great way to spend an afternoon. Grab a frisbee from Old Pal Provisions and toss in style. Bring blankets, a cooler full of drinks, and snacks, and play some groovy tunes. Got a skater in the crew? Post up at the local skate park and bring your Old Pal deck.
4) Game Night
Game night could be anything! Play checkers, twister, Jenga, or just bust out a deck of cards and try your luck at poker. If you’re in it for the long haul, Monopoly can outlive any smoke session!
5) Host a Potluck
Hosting a potluck is one of the best ways to share your favorite foods. It’s a great way to meet new pals, especially if you’re hosting a themed potluck. Might we suggest a pot-themed potluck? Check out our miso green bean casserole made with cannabis or our cannabis-infused chili recipe. Anything can be improved with a little weed. Your imagination is really the limit here!
6) See a Movie
If you’re the type of person who likes to get high and be entertained, there is nothing better than hitting a movie theater. You don’t feel any pressure to make conversation, you can go with all of your friends, and there are usually snacks involved. Pick something riveting or hilarious, and you can’t go wrong with seeing a movie while high!
7) Visit an Amusement Park
This is excellent for a social group that doesn’t mind a crowd. But if you enjoy a thrill, get lit and take a ride on a roller coaster. Let your inner kid come out and go on all the nostalgic rides. You can easily spend an entire day exploring an amusement park and playing with your friends.
8) Get Lost in an Art Gallery or Museum
Many people mistakenly think art galleries are stuffy, boring places. The truth is that they can be an excellent place for you and your pals to relax in the company of friends. Art galleries are often found in beautiful buildings with lots of natural light and airiness, so it’s easy to feel at home. You can also get snacks at the museum cafe when the munchies hit.
9) Take a Yoga Class
Yoga is a fantastic way to relax, stretch and connect with yourself. It’s also something fun to do while high with your pals. Who says group fitness isn’t fun? Look for stoned yoga classes in your area. There are many popping up in states with legal weed that encourage you to smoke before or even during class. It can really help you tap into the moment and focus on your body. Or, just pull up an online class to find your flow from the comfort of your own home.
10) Play Video Games
You can choose any kind of video game, but we like throwbacks like Super Mario Brothers, Contra, Donkey Kong, and Paperboy. But hey, all the new stuff is pretty rad, too. Video games are a perfect way to chill around the house, relax, and smoke up with your pals.
11) Get Crafty
Let your inner artist shine and make something. Hosting a craft day might be the most fun you and your friends have had in a long time. Make potpourri, paint coffee mugs, build a terrarium, the sky’s the limit. Cannabis inspires creativity, so even if you feel like this isn’t your thing, it might be after a smoke sesh.
12) Play Charades
Charades is a game that can be played with about anything. You don’t need a bunch of props or even words: it’s all about body language and miming. It’s a great way to get closer to your friends and significant others—or at least find out more about them. Play in the comfort of your home, yard, or at the local park!
13) Visit an Animal Shelter
With the population of pets in shelters growing year after year, taking a day to visit these shelters can be a great way to help out animals in need. It’s also fun! You can learn about new animals, volunteer, or donate supplies. There are lots of ways that you could get involved, and mostly, who doesn’t love snuggling up with a cute furry creature?
14) Go on a Hike
Hiking is a great way to get exercise and connect with nature, which makes it perfect for a day for a digital detox. Plus, it’s also a fun activity for you and your friends to do together. Get out of the city (and your comfort zone) and find a new trail to explore. Don’t forget to stay hydrated.
15) Go Swimming
Swimming is a great way to exercise and a fun way to cool off. Swimming feels amazing while high, as the water soothes your muscles and the movement of your arms and legs helps you feel more relaxed. Find a local lake, river, ocean, or even an indoor pool if your climate doesn’t allow for outdoor bodies of water. Grab a frisbee and play with your pals!
16) Check Out a New Restaurant
If you’re a foodie, the best thing to do while high is to try new food. There are so many delicious ways to eat when stoned! Trying new restaurants is always fun, but it’s even better when you’re baked. And if you can find a place that has great food and an awesome atmosphere, then why not? Nothing beats having a good time with your buds and enjoying a tasty meal.
17) Learn How to Roll a Joint
If you’ve never been the one in the group to twist up a doobie, now is the perfect time to learn. Knowing how to roll a joint is a valuable skill! Sometimes packing a bowl isn’t an option, and we tend to think that weed tastes better when smoked joint-style anyway. Set up a rolling station with a rolling tray, grinder, papers, and crutches. Grab some Old Pal Ready-to-Roll, and you’re set! You can even experiment with other smokable herbs alongside cannabis for a new flavor profile. Already experienced with joints? Try rolling a blunt!
Dancing while high is a great way to get exercise and relieve stress, and it can be a delightful experience. You can dance in your living room or at a concert or DJ set. There are many different types of music that you might want to dance to: hip hop, techno, country, classical music…the possibilities are endless! Turn up the tunes and let the music move you.
19) Go Mushroom Foraging
First, check the legality of picking mushrooms in your area, and know where it’s safe to pick them. You want to make sure that you’re not picking poisonous mushrooms, which can be fatal if consumed. If you have a mycologist in the friend group, let them lead the endeavor! Even if you don’t plan on eating the mushrooms, it’s still fun to take a walk through the woods and see what kind of fungi you discover.
20) See a Comedy Show
Weed and laughter are two of life’s best medicines. What could possibly be more entertaining than getting stoned and seeing a comedy show? Check your local clubs and find something near you. Many times there are comedy nights featuring multiple comedians so that you can make an entire evening out of it.
Have Fun, Stay Safe, and Enjoy Your Pals
While having fun is important, it’s also a good idea to keep safety in mind. Don’t do anything that could put you or others at risk. This can include driving while high, even if you are sober enough to drive soberly! Likewise, getting ripped and hiking the tallest mountain in your town sounds fun, but it might not end well. Make sure you have a safe place to do these things (not on the roof of your house) and be aware of your surroundings so don’t get busted smoking somewhere you’re not supposed to.
