Whether you're a recreational user or rely on cannabis for medical purposes, stretching your stash can be essential, especially during times when replenishing isn't an option. Here, we’ve compiled a robust list of 23 smart tactics to help you get the most out of your cannabis, combining tried-and-true methods with some lesser-known hacks.

Mix CBG or CBD with THC Bud:

Elevate your cannabis experience and make your stash last longer by mixing CBG or CBD flowers with your regular THC bud. This not only enhances the effects but also prolongs the high without using more of your precious THC cannabis.

Proper Storage:

Preserve the potency of your cannabis by storing it correctly. Keep it in a cool, dark place, preferably in an airtight glass jar, to prevent degradation of cannabinoids and terpenes.

If you’re an adult that is still leaving your weed out and about, you need to check out the StashLogix Small Silverton. It's smell proof, compact, and only $20.

Use a Dry-Herb Vaporizer:

Vaporizers are known for their efficiency. They heat cannabis to the point of vaporization without combustion, providing a cleaner and more potent experience with less material.

Use a Bong or Pipe:

Compared to joints, bongs and pipes are more efficient as they burn hotter, allowing you to get more from a small amount of cannabis.

Rationing and Monitoring Usage:

Rationing your cannabis, especially during times when a restock isn't possible, can help stretch your stash. Track your usage to identify patterns and make adjustments accordingly.

Re-use and Recycle:

Make sure you’re using a quality grinder so you can collect the kief. That way you add a pinch to a smaller bowl. Remember - Just like seasoning a meal, sometimes less is more.

Don’t toss the stems! Instead, try brewing a tea, mixing in your trimmings.

Invest in Quality:

Opting for high-grade cannabis might seem pricey initially, but its potency means you'll need less to achieve your desired buzz, making it cost-effective in the long run.

Choose quality craft cannabis like Simply Bare’s Select. Crafted through rigorous trial and error, the Select line is comprised of strains featuring only the absolute best potency, bud size, trichome content and taste. Like we said previously, a little goes a long way!

Efficient Rolling and Burning Techniques:

Roll thinner joints and blunts. Less is more when it comes to rolling. Thinner joints and blunts conserve cannabis while still seshing the squad. Avoid torching the entire bowl; light only certain spots to conserve weed.

Check out the Back Forty 40s - Wedding Pie Pre-Roll. This pack includes 10, 0.35g joints that offer a consistent, even burn with enhanced airflow and flavour.

Try a One-Hitter or Dugout:

One-hitters allow for controlled, minimal cannabis usage, making them a great option for conservation. They’re a cheap and discrete option to store and smoke your stash.

Grow Your Own Cannabis:

Growing your own cannabis ensures a steady supply and can be more economical over time. While it may at first seem like a daunting task, home-grown bud yields volume like none other.

Emergency Stash:

Keep a small emergency stash for times when replenishing your kush isn’t possible. Make sure you tuck some away next time you grab!


Microdosing is a great way to enjoy the benefits of cannabis while using less. For a controlled dose, try the Glenn's - His Favourites Multi Pack Soft Chews. Take a small bite for maximum longevity.

Tolerance Breaks:

A tolerance break can reset your sensitivity to cannabis, requiring less for the desired effects when you resume use.

Utilize ABV (Already Been Vaped) Material:

Don’t toss your ABV material; it still contains active cannabinoids and can be used in edibles or tinctures.

Use Edibles:

Edibles provide longer-lasting effects with less cannabis compared to smoking or vaping.

Practice Mindful Consumption:

Mindful consumption can help identify and reduce unnecessary use.

Schedule Your Sessions:

Scheduled sessions can lead to controlled and reduced consumption. Limiting cannabis use to only specifically designated sessions could help you stay focused, accomplish your goals and extend the lifespan of your stash. There’s nothing like kicking back with a joint after a job well done.

Educate Yourself on Different Strains and Their Potencies:

Understanding strains and their effects can help you understand what works best for you. For a deep dive, check out our cannabinoids guide.

Explore Alternative Consumption Methods:

Tinctures, topicals, or capsules might provide desired effects with less cannabis. Controlling the potency of your dose is key.

Join a Cannabis Savings Program:

Loyalty programs at dispensaries can lead to savings, making your cannabis budget stretch further.

Bulk Purchases:

Buying in bulk can be cost-effective, but ensure proper storage to maintain quality. Don’t have a big budget for weed? Consider splitting an ounce of Redecan’s Cold Creek Kush with your 420 friends to take advantage of the savings.
