Have you ever found yourself stoned alone with no one around and nothing to do? Well, here’s a list of some things you can do to make the most of your high and have a great time doing it. I’m sure not everything on this list will apply to you, but hopefully there’s something here that you can do to enjoy your stoned solitude.
Listen To Music – This is one of my personal favorite things to do whether I’m stoned or not. But laying back, firing up a bowl, and listening to some tunes is one of my all-time favorite things to do in this whole world. Music has the power to take our mind anywhere we want it to go. Sometimes I like to listen to music that reminds me of certain people, places, and times in my life. For example, every time I listen to the Outkast album Stankonia it brings me back to the summer of 2001 when I turned 21 and met the first love of my life. Other times I like to just put on some classical music and let my mind wander. Listening to Frederic Chopin’s Nocturnes always puts me in a deep, contemplative mood. And lately I can’t stop listening to Lana Del Ray’s new album, Ultraviolence. But whatever your musical tastes may be, getting stoned and listening to music by yourself can be an incredibly peaceful, powerful, and pleasurable experience.
Watch A Movie – Another great passive way to enjoy your stoned alone time is to get cozy and pop in a movie. Turn down the lights, get some popcorn, and get lost in whatever you choose to watch. Maybe you want to get lost in an epic classic like The Godfather or Dear Hunter. If you’re in the mood for some informative entertainment you can watch a documentary like Super High Me. Or maybe you want to just laugh your ass off at something goofy like the stoner comedy Smiley Face. Whatever you’re in the mood for watching a movie is a great way to enjoy your alone and stoned time.
Watch TV – Sometimes you don’t want to commit to 90+ minutes of watching a movie. And, if it’s a movie you’ve never seen, it can sometimes be hard to get into it. But with watching a television show you’ve seen before, you already are familiar with all the characters and the plot so you can just relax and enjoy it without having to think too much. My absolute favorite show to watch high right now is Rick and Morty on Adult Swim. If you haven’t seen it, I highly recommend it.
Watch Youtube Videos – This is a great way to enjoy yourself and pass the time when you’re stoned alone. It’s always interesting to see where you end up from where you started with Youtube. There really is no limit to all the weird stuff you can find. I’ll start out by watching a video about something like growing cannabis and 45 minutes later I’m watching videos of middle-aged women getting bit by poisonous snakes in South America. Youtube + weed + being alone + time = a weird adventure that will take you down roads you didn’t even know existed!
Be Creative – If you feel like actually doing something instead of just watching or listening to something, get creative! Pick up that acoustic guitar and strum out a few chords. Break out your brushes and paint whatever comes to mind. Or share your thoughts with the entire world by starting your own blog. It’s no secret that weed can make you much more creative. Use this time by yourself to harness that creativity and create something!
Go Stargazing – There is something so wondrous and awe inspiring about the night sky. Looking out across the universe at distant stars and galaxies can give you a whole new perspective on your life. Suddenly, if only for a brief moment, all of your troubles, worries, and fears seem small and insignificant. Just find a comfortable place outside with little or no light, let your eyes adjust to the dark, and ponder the universe and your place in it.
Chef Up Some Food – We all know that eating can be very enjoyable when you are stoned. But cooking can be just as much (well, almost as much) fun too. No matter your level of skill in the kitchen, it can be fun and rewarding to get in there and try making something new. Whether it’s your very own creation or a new recipe that you pulled off of the internet, cooking can be a great way to enjoy your stoned alone time.
Take A Bath – There’s nothing in the world like getting high, putting on some music in the background, and relaxing in a nice hot bath. If you really want to go all-out, light some candles and use some bubble bath liquid to create the ultimate relaxation environment. In the wintertime make it a steaming-hot bath and open the window a bit to let the cold, crisp winter air come in. The contrast between the hot and cold will make your senses go crazy. You’ll never want to get out!
Enjoy some “special alone time” – Okay, I wasn’t going to add this one, but we all do it and it belongs on this list as much as anything else. I’m not going to spell it out for you, but I’m sure you know what I’m talking about. This just might be the funnest thing to do when you are stoned alone. Get comfy and construct an elaborate fantasy in your mind to explore. But make sure the front door is locked…because this is easily the most embarrassing thing on this list to get caught doing!
Just Sit and Think – In this fast paced world where we are constantly connected to eachother 24/7 and always on the move, sometimes it’s nice to just sit back, fire up the bong, and get lost in your own thoughts. Reflect on your past, think about your future, meditate on the here and now, or just go wherever your mind takes you.
