Wild dreaming is the silver lining to failing at astral projection.
Legalization is going to mean a lot more people casually smoking up together, but with weed sometimes it’s nice to just go solo. Here are five high-elevating things you can do to have the time of your life without leaving home. One of these suggestions is bound to tickle your fancy.

1Masturbate
Speaking of tickling your fancy! Putting these two mortal sins together makes for one hell of a combo. Cannabis is all about connecting you to your body so you may as well take that extra step and just get real connected. Smoking a sativa with a high CBD concentration can get you body stoned and lead to some real earth-shattering moments.

2Movies
You can’t have a list of things to do while high and NOT have watch a movie on it. It’s a trope for a reason, and a good one at that. As with music, movies can be tailored to the high you’re riding and the mood that’s jiving. For some real belly laughs, I highly recommend What We Do In The Shadows on Netflix.

3Three words: Google. Deep. Dive.
There are so many trivial distractions you can find on the interwebs. A good ol’ fashioned Google deep dive is an excellent way to let your high mind explore new topics. Pick something you’ve always wanted to learn more about and go. You’ll be clicking and typing so fast you’ll feel like Lisbeth Salander, even if you’re just hunched over your laptop with 42 tabs open on Chesley “Sully” Sullenberger, the pilot from the miracle on the Hudson.

4Clean your house
When your head is in a cannabis cloud, let your body go on autopilot and get some shit done. Sativas like Green Crack or Jack Herer are the perfect boost to get some spring cleaning under your belt. A couple of bong hits make house cleaning feel more like a game than a chore. Plus when you come out of the cleaning trance, it’s a nice surprise to have all your laundry folded and dishes done.


5 Try to astral project
During a Google deep dive I stumbled upon different hypnosis and meditation channels. There are tons of videos featuring a disembodied voice to guide you to explore your subconscious brain. Wear a pair of noise-cancelling headphones, spark up a joint and a few sticks of incense, and you’re off. This one is tricky because it’s super-easy to fall asleep, but that’s OK. A stoned astral projection-turned-nap can lead to intense dreams.
