We get it, winter in Canada is officially the worst season ever. Especially for stoners in 2020, since we are being forced to stay indoors with our families because of the Covid-19 lockdowns.
Don’t get us wrong though. We do love sitting in front of a fire (or a heater) with a mug of hot cocoa in our hands, and snuggling down in a blanket as much as the next guy. The only problem is, that smoking weed isn’t just as fun.
Unlike summers, we can’t just go outside to smoke. It’s a bit too cold, dark and dreary out there to properly enjoy our favorite strains. And smoking inside is just not possible for everyone, especially if you live with your family and have kids in the house.
For many all over the country, surviving the winter with weed is a challenge.
But it doesn’t need to be. In fact, there are many reasons why winter is a great and fun time to smoke weed. This is exactly what we will be looking at in this article. So let’s begin.
1. Kick covid-19 in the butt!
I think we can all agree that this thrice damned virus ruined this year. Many of us have lost loved ones, gotten sick ourselves, faced financial troubles, and spent most of the year away from friends and loved ones. But now that the year is finally nearing its end, the time has come to rise and tell the virus that we will not be defeated. We will not give up.
And what better way to do this than with weed. So order your favorite strains now and end this year with an euphoric, blissful blast.
2. No one’s outside
If you, like many others, belong to a more conserative family, or live in a neighborhood where marijuana is frowned upon, there is no time better than now to smoke outside in public. Afterall, everyone else is inside. So you can be yourself, and smoke your favorite cannabis strains without facing judgemental stares and comments.
In fact, smoking outside can even be more fun than it is in the summers, for this same reason. How many times has it happened that you finally get a day off, and you make a plan to visit your favorite indulging spot, only to find a family of 4 enjoying a picnic there. Well, you don’t need to worry about this in winter, cause there is literally no one outside.
Smoking outside during winter is more discreet as well. While disguising your dank smoke as cold breaths of condensation is quite difficult, the fact does remain that the aroma doesn’t spread as quickly as it does in the summers.
3. You can go on magical walks
Weed can make everything a lot more fun than it actually is, even exercising. And what better way to exercise in winter than going on long, slow walks in your local, snow covered park?
But while it may seem unlikely that such walks can ever be made anymore magical than they already are, we’re here to tell you that they can be.
With weed of course.
The right cannabis strain can put everything in a new perspective, and enable you to enter a true magical fairy land.
4. Winter is the perfect time to bake
Of course it is. With Christmas and New Year just around the corner, all anyone is talking about are cakes and cookies. So why not do a bit of baking yourself, and add in a secret, super fun ingredient to your brownies, cakes and cookies?
Just be careful though. If you live with your family, be sure to make two separate batches of everything you make, and keep the cannabis infused one separate and away from everyone else. Especially if you have a couple of children living with you.
On the other hand, if you don’t feel like baking, (or if you don’t know how to), you could always order cannabis infused edibles from your favorite online dispensaries.
Now that the holidays have started, all that’s left to do is break out your blankets and snuggle up in them while watching, and rewatching, your favorite holiday themed movies.
As appealing as that sounds, this experience can be made even more fun, and relaxing with weed. The warming and relaxing effects of most indicas are sure to make this winter one of the best you’ve spent in a long time, and also help take your mind off most depressing and anxious thoughts.
6. Weed even becomes easier to smoke
We saved the best for last. Many marijuana enthusiasts complain that weed smoke is quite irritating when inhaled, especially on hot and humid days.
However, during winter, smoking feels amazing. The cold, crisp air feels amazing in your lungs, and is equivalent to adding a bunch of ice cubes into your bong. Though while it doesn’t actually make the smoke colder, all we know is that it really helps.
So if you live in an extremely snowy area, try this out. Pack some snow in your hand and make a fist. Hold your joint between your middle and index finger, and inhale deeply through the small opening between your thumb and index finger. Thus, you have created an icy hand pipe for yourself, and will actually get high on cold smoke.
So why not give it a try?
At the end of the day…
The experience of smoking in winter is quite different than that of summers. And even though many people are not comfortable with it, the experience is certainly not bad, and can even be quite a lot of fun.
So the next time you feel a bit apprehensive while craving for weed during winter, remember these reasons, and see for yourself why smoking weed in winter can be just as much fun, if not more, as in summer.
If you haven’t tried smoking in winter yet, we sure hope that the above reasons will be more than enough to give you the boost you need.
