The Unspoken Rules of a Joint Smoking Session: A Guide to Responsible Cannabis Enjoyment

Updated: Jul 15, 2023

Partaking in a joint smoking session can be an enjoyable and social experience, but it's important to remember that there are certain unspoken rules that govern this shared activity. These unspoken guidelines help promote a safe and respectful environment for all participants involved. In this blog post, we will explore some of these essential rules, ranging from considerations for others to personal safety and responsible choices. Let's delve into the unspoken rules of a joint smoking session.

1. Opt for Local Weed

Choosing locally sourced cannabis, when available, supports local growers and cultivators, promotes sustainability, and can help reduce the carbon footprint associated with long-distance transportation. Additionally, local strains are often well-adapted to the regional climate, providing a unique and authentic experience.

2. Respect Your Surroundings

One crucial rule of joint smoking is to be considerate of your environment. If you're smoking in a shared living space or apartment complex, it's essential to smoke in private areas such as designated smoking zones, to prevent bothering neighbors or those nearby who may not appreciate the smell or presence of smoke.

3. Proper Disposal of Roaches (Butts)

After enjoying a joint, it's important not to leave roaches (the remnants of a smoked joint) on the ground because they contain substances that are harmful to dogs. Always dispose of roaches responsibly, ensuring they are properly extinguished and placed in appropriate receptacles like ashtrays or designated containers.

4. Never Drive While Intoxicated

One of the most critical rules to remember during a joint smoking session is to never operate a vehicle while under the influence. Cannabis can impair your motor skills, judgment, and reaction times, making it unsafe to drive. Plan ahead by designating a sober driver, taking public transportation, or using rideshare services to ensure the safety of both yourself and others on the road.

5. Stay Hydrated

Coughing is a common occurrence when smoking cannabis, especially for those new to it. Always have water or a non-alcoholic beverage nearby during a joint session. Taking a few sips can help alleviate coughing and keep you hydrated, ensuring a more comfortable experience.

6. Don't Share Joints if You're Sick

In the spirit of health and consideration for others, it is crucial to refrain from sharing joints if you are feeling unwell or have symptoms of illness. Sharing a joint can facilitate the transmission of germs, which is especially relevant in the context of contagious illnesses. Instead, it's best to encourage everyone to bring their own supply for the session. This practice not only promotes personal hygiene but also helps maintain a respectful atmosphere, ensuring the well-being of all participants.
