“Everything’s better with a bag of weed.”
– Stewie Griffin

Stewie and Brian’s ode to weed on Family Guy was tongue-in-cheek, but we know most readers can relate to the sentiment.

Here’s the problem, though: it’s easy to fall into a routine. Most of us do it without even realizing it.

Everyday life can quickly become a routine. You wake up, go to work, come home, relax, sleep. For long-time partners, sex becomes a routine more often than not.

Smoking up can become a routine, too. Some folks usually chill while binge-watching TV. Some always smoke with friends and talk for hours. Others regularly get high and crash on the couch for a “weed nap.”

That’s fine but remember: everything’s better with a bag of weed. Why not shake up the routine and try something different?

Here are some great things to do while high.

One Suggestion Before We Start

Some types of weed are better than others when you want to explore new activities while stoned.

You may prefer indicas over sativas, or you may be partial to strains that lean indica. There’s nothing wrong with that, of course. But once you’ve gotten wasted, you may find yourself unwilling — or unable, in the event of couch lock — to try something new.

Sativas are more likely to produce an energetic, creative, sociable, and fun high. That makes them the best choice for those who want to explore some of our suggestions.

Things to Do at Home While High

We’re leaving out “watch movies” and “listen to music” because those are default choices we all fall back on.

Some of these other options are obvious — but you may have been too blazed to think of them.

1. Play Games

Yes, many people think of board games as “bored” games. Trust us, though. When you’re prone to giggling fits, many classic games can be a lot more fun than you remember.

Monopoly and Risk are fine, but games that require mental dexterity are better for laughs. Twister is the most fun in mixed company, but even kids’ favorites like Jenga and Operation can be a real challenge when you’re stoned off your ass.

You don’t need a game that comes in a box, either. Truth or Dare, “Would You Rather,” and “Fuck-Marry-Kill” are ideal games to play with a group taking huge bong rips.

Video games can also be fun to play while high, although you might want to stay in creative mode if you want to survive for more than a few minutes.

2. Arts, Crafts, and Writing

Many artists have gone on record saying that smoking weed stimulates their creative process.

You may not be a budding Picasso or Van Gogh, but strains that enhance creativity can help you produce your own “masterpiece.” The medium doesn’t matter; drawings, paintings, needlepoint, or origami may all look better with the aid of psychoactive inspiration. The same is true for writing, whether you’re motivated to share your poetry, fiction, or random thoughts.

Never thought of yourself as an artist? Why not pull out a coloring book and some crayons or an old Etch-A-Sketch? If nothing else, once you’re sober again, it will be cool to see what you’ve created.

3. Play With a Pet

It’s always fun to play with your furry friends, but doing it when you’re stoned takes the pleasure to a new level. You’ll be more likely to appreciate their unique personality quirks, and you may feel a deeper connection with them. Think of it as the real-life equivalent of getting high and watching dog and cat videos on YouTube.

One caution: don’t share. Weed is dangerous for pets to ingest.

4. Meditate

Some people find it difficult to meditate because they feel self-conscious or anxious about the practice. Smoking can lower those barriers, freeing the mind to reach greater levels of introspection and consciousness.

Even better: meditating outdoors and connecting with nature as well as yourself.

5. Cook

This is probably not the best idea for people whose idea of cooking is making a box of mac-and-cheese or putting a pop tart into the toaster.

But those who feel comfortable in the kitchen may find that when they’re high, they’re able to come up with different combinations of ingredients or spices — and create dishes they’d never have imagined when sober.

6. Clean

Hear us out here. We know that most people don’t equate “cleaning” with “fun.” But cleaning the house while baked will make the work a lot more bearable. Crank up the tunes, dance around while vacuuming, marvel at the dust bunnies you find, and you may find cleaning more enjoyable than it’s ever been.

Things to Do Out in the World While High

One caution: if any of these activities require travel, be sure a sober friend is driving.

1. Visit a Museum

Even if you’re a regular visitor to your local art museum, you’ll view the paintings differently when you’re high. And if you’re the type of person who fell asleep during art class in school, it’s worth another try. THC changes the way that the brain perceives objects, shapes, and colors.

Natural history museums are another great option; interactive exhibits may be designed to be educational, but when you’re stoned, they’re just plain fun.

2. Visit the Zoo

We’ve already mentioned those YouTube pet videos and playing with your pet while high. Now imagine an entire wonderland of cute and funny animals you can watch for hours.

If you think cats are adorable and funny, just wait until you’ve watched gorillas, koalas, and penguins while under the influence of an edible.

3. Have a Picnic

With a great assortment of meats, cheeses, bread, and fruit — and a great assortment of space cakes, gummies, and infused drinks — what better way to get some fresh air and enjoy nature? A game of Frisbee or touch football could be fun while stoned, too.

Extra points: have your picnic at the beach. Just make sure the seagulls don’t swoop down and grab your edibles.

4. Hit the Playground

Swings, slides, and monkey bars aren’t just fun for kids to play on. Wait until sunset when the kids are all tucked into bed, and the playground can be all yours. Better yet, since there’s no one around, you’ll probably be able to get away with lighting up to refresh your buzz.

Things to Do While High: FAQ

Q: What’s the worst thing you can do while high?
A: We can think of quite a few. The worst one is driving, obviously, but almost as bad as mixing weed and alcohol. Other than that, you probably don’t want to meet the new neighbors, tackle a home improvement project, or call your parents — that is, unless your parents are stoners, too.

Q: You left out the best one: sex.
A: We honestly didn’t think that had to be said.
