Are you someone who celebrates 4/20 365 days a year?
Do you use medical marijuana or weed gummy bears to help you to deal with stress or chronic pain?
Do you love the feeling of being stoned? Do you truly feel like you’re at your best self with a blunt in one hand and a bag of Cheetos in the other?
If so, then you’ve likely already partaken in the cultural phenomenon that is hotboxing. Even if you feel like you’re a true professional, real bud connoisseurs are always looking for ways to improve their next hit.
Whether you’re riding in a Rolls Royce Ghost or your mom’s 2002 Ford Focus, everyone deserves to have a great hotboxing experience.
In this post, we’re sharing some of our most tried and true tips on how to hotbox. Read on!
Where to Hotbox
Finding the perfect spot for hotboxing is a combination of smart planning and personal preference.
For example, if you want to relax, you can drive to a spot with a great view overlooking your city, or even a nice trail somewhere in the woods.
If your local law enforcement is a little more engaged than you’d like, then the best place for hotboxing is likely in a large parking lot.
It might sound counterintuitive to smoke in a more public place, but chances are no one will notice. They’ll be too busy watching the mother of four scream at the teenager who stole her parking spot to worry about what you’re doing.
How to Keep It Lowkey
When you’re ready to hotbox, it’s important that you don’t risk ruining the high because you’re paranoid about being caught.
To keep the drama to a minimum, only bring what you plan to smoke. That means roll your joints ahead of time and leave the big bag at home.
While it requires a little extra preparation, blunts are much easier to hide should someone come knocking. Plus, blunts also create more smoke than other options. This means everyone will get a stronger high from sitting in the car.
So give your beloved bong a kiss goodbye and stock up on some rolling papers for the evening instead.
Of course, the weed you smoke makes a huge difference, too. Check out the offerings on the Leafbuyer Arizona website to get the best in bud!
What to Bring
Of course, what really makes a hotboxing experience so awesome is how you choose to accessorize it.
First things first–decide on the soundtrack for the evening (or morning, if you and your crew are the wake and bake type.) Beats like A$AP Rocky, Crystal Castles, or Chances the Rapper are a good place to start.
Pro tip: leave the Pink Floyd at home. You’re not 14 anymore.
Next thing you need to think about? How you’re going to handle it once those munchies hit.
This is especially important if you’re planning to stay stationary (which we strongly suggest). Technology has not yet evolved to make it possible for Taco Bell to deliver to the mall parking lot.
This means you’ll need to do some snack shopping ahead of time. Don’t forget both sweet and savory items. Think chips, cookies, and tons of water to keep everyone hydrated.
Finally, if you’re going to be driving afterward, draw straws or place bets to choose a designated driver. The last thing you want is to kill your high by getting into a car crash.
You also don’t want to be so high that you end up sitting at a stop sign for an hour, waiting for it to turn green.
How to Keep Your Car Smelling Fresh
You might love that seriously dank smell while you hotbox. But it might not be so great the next morning when you have to drive your car to the office.
So, how do you get the smell of weed out of your car without having to spray down the whole interior with vomit-inducing fabric refresher?
The best way is to take your car for a little joyride around the block. Keep the windows rolled down and the top open. Then, use a small handheld vacuum to pick up any stray pieces of bud you may have missed.
Next, grab a bucket filled with soap and hot water and wipe your interior with a damp rag. Don’t forget your steering wheel and dashboard!
Finally, one spot we see a lot of people miss is the windshield. If you hotbox fairly frequently in your vehicle, the smoke will leave a light tint on your windshield. That’s a dead giveaway you want to avoid.
Use some good old-fashioned Windex and paper towels to wipe away the evidence, and you’re good to go.
