Relaxing and cannabis go hand in hand like butter on toast. Nothing’s better than relaxing on a hot summer’s day when the world melts literally and you melt figuratively.
Yes, it’s an excellent way to experience the euphoric benefits of cannabis, but it can be a little lack-lustre. It’s quite an unimaginative way to spend the day. With a world full of activities, there’s much more at play.
Then what to do? Kicking back and watching a movie is always the right choice. But if you’ve exhausted those avenues and are looking for something with a bit more life, look no further.
We’ve compiled a list of the best things to do when high from sex and gaming to what books to read.
If you want to vegetate and see what it feels like to turn into a human turnip, go right ahead, it’s your life. But for those that need a little bit more pizazz, join us in this journey of some seriously awesome things to do while high.
Fun Things To Do While High
Let’s kick this off with a bang. If for whatever reason you haven’t tried exploring the world of Sex on cannabis, it’s time to re-evaluate things. Smoking weed and having sex is the pandora’s box of bedroom play. It opens up avenues and sensations that aren’t realized until travelled down.
Everybody knows that most cannabis strains induce a euphoric sense of being. Amplify this feeling times 10 and now you can start to imagine how things can get spicy.
Get things started with a shotgun kiss, or maybe set up the mood with a Hawaiian hotbox, foreplay style. You can find these and tips to more ways to spruce up the bedroom with cannabis here.
Deep breath. Count 1, 2, 3.
Exhale. 1, 2, 3.
Take a puff. 1, 2, 3.
For the practitioners of yoga, the mental, physical and spiritual benefits become apparent quickly. The stress-free and feeling of ease is like CBD. So it only makes sense that combining the two is a winning combination.
Yoga might not be the first thing that comes to mind when it comes to the best things to do when high. But, once you’re in that downward dog, it all makes sense.
Speaking of sense, use the time to get to know your senses, feelings and emotions. Cannabis heightens your senses. And using yoga as a meditation while high can get you better acquainted with yourself.
Eat and cook while high
Now we’re getting to the meat and potatoes. If stuffing your face while stoned is a past time, hobby, and passion, welcome to the club: population, millions. Eating a big bowl of pho, burritos, nachos, pizza, curry and just about everything else imaginable is a delight to munch when stoned.
But did you know that you can infuse cannabis right into your food as well?
Want to make a toasty piece of toast, or bake a pie that might put you on your face? Then cannabutter is your best friend. What about delicious cannabis organic ice cream, of the chocolate chip variety?

Think you can manage? Good, we had faith in you.
Now if cooking isn’t your forte, it’s more than acceptable to order in or go out for a nice meal. You need to check out the best stoner foods from around the world. Just looking at the list won’t satisfy your cravings and hunger, but at least you’ll know what you’re in the mood for.
You’re going to want to clean that drool off your face; you’re making a mess over there!
Things to do when high? Watch a movie
Alright, we’ve mentioned that there’s so much more to do than lazily hanging around the house. But, it’s not our fault that watching a movie is one of the best activities to do while high.
Instead of picking some movies that mindlessly wash away a couple of hours of your life, we worked to compile a list of movies that make you think outside the box. You’ll find classics from the Matrix to the more obscure bizarre flicks like Waking Life in that list.
Since we make the rules, we’re allowed to break them. It wouldn’t be right to leave out some of the classic stoner movies of all time. You can find the top 10 here.
Play video games
Weed games are a great way to break the silence once the death bubbahas claimed its victims. The possibilities are endless when it comes to weed games. Most will spark an outcry of hilarity from the group. None will leave you sober.
Instead of playing a board game, video games are also a great option. There are multiplayer choicessuch from Guitar Hero to Super Smash Brothers.
If you’re all by your lonesome, grab these titles to spend the afternoon: Journey, Red Dead Redemption, Spider-Man, Assassin’s Creed, God of War or BioShock.
The list goes on forever. But don’t let that deter you from picking one!
As for cannabis games that don’t involve sitting in front of the screen, you can find our favourite list, from Chicago to Ash Bomber, in this guide.
Board games to play while stoned
- Chess: Chess is a great way to stimulate the mind. If you or your friend doesn’t know how to play, here are the rules.
- Operation: Operation is hands down one of the best things to do when high. The precision and focus required are perfectly adept for a cannabis high.
- Mouse Trap: The best board game of all time goes to Mouse Trap. It’s packed with fun at every corner, and the end is a stoner’s dream come true. Just don’t get too stoned and trigger the game too early.
- Battleship: E4. YOU SUNK MY BATTLESHIP!
- Trivial Pursuit: Getting those intellectual juices going are needed every once in a while. Trivial pursuit is frustrating yet rewarding at the same time.
Throw a weed party
Alcohol fueled events are out; weed parties are in. Getting loaded at a function and waking up feeling like death gets old. But, smoking weed with your best friends, laughing for hours and waking up fresh as a daisy never does.
To throw a dope weed party, there are a few essential steps. First and foremost, make sure you have enough weed to last the night. What kind of weed party runs out of cannabis? Next is munchies, whether purchased at the store or whipped up at home.
You can find all the other weed party necessities here. With these steps, your weed party will be the one talked about for many weeks to come.
Read a book
We can already hear it. We get it; you don’t “like” to read. You probably didn’t like vegetables either. But they’re good for you and damn tasty at the same time. Our muscles require exercise, simple as that. If you don’t work out your most important muscle, it will turn to Jell-O.
Picking up a good reading habit makes a world of difference. Reading a bookis also one of the best things to do when high. The stories have a deeper meaning, the character development is more apparent. And you’ll forget how long you’ve even been reading.
Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep is a fascinating novel. The movie Blade Runnerwas based on the story. Alice’s Adventures in Wonderlandis another excellent option. It’s just over a hundred pages, but full of wit, morals and riddles. Find more of our favourite books to read while high here.
Too many people these days say they’re not good at art. They can’t draw, they can’t paint so they simply discredit their lack of skill in those fields as not being artistic. This is rubbish!
Art’s not isolated to using paint on a canvas or drawing with pencil crayons. It spans a vast array of mediums. Play a musical instrument, build a sandcastle, make a figure out of felt and pipefitters, write a short story, mess around on Adobe Photoshop or take up pottery.
Cannabis lowers our animosity and fear of being judged. It frees us up to relax and be at ease with whatever skills you have in a given subject. Find the medium that sings to your soul and attack.
Listen to some tunes
There probably isn’t a single person in the world that has smoked cannabis and not get down to some grooves. Cannabis and music are a match made in heaven — the clarity and precision in which we dissect music while high is something else.
This doesn’t mean all music will sound good. Bad music, at least to the listener’s perspective will still more than likely not be good. But, if you stick to this listen of bands and artists, there’s enough music to fill a couple of iPods at least.
- Jimi Hendrix
- The Doors
- The Beatle
- Louis Armstrong
- Duke Ellington
- Bob Marley (And any of his offspring)
- Kings of Leon
- Mac Demarco
- Anderson Paak
- Mura Masa
- Big Gigantic
- Michael Jackson
You get the picture. Spotify, YouTube and other streaming services have made it easier than ever to create the ultimate playlist.
And since it’s one of our favourite pastimes while on cannabis cloud nine, we’ve collated our own list here.

Do NOT Do This When High
But isn’t everything great stoned? NO! Cannabis alters your perception and slows reaction times. It also performs tricks on our mind that can be dangerous in certain situations. Here are the following tasks that you SHOULD not complete while under the influence of marijuana.
Getting high and driving is safe, right? Park and spark, the old catchphrase, must be real, right? Wrong. Smoking while under the influence of cannabis is a hazard to our health and others.
Operate heavy machinery
Driving under the influence is a bad idea; operating heavy machinery is even worse. You put the lives of others at Jeopardy, in the present and future.
Alcohol is already a powerful nervous system depressant. Combined with cannabis, it can turn into a world of mess. Alcohol and marijuana increase the effects of each other. Often just mixing a little of each leads to undesired results.
Get a tattoo
To get a tattoo on a whim while stoned is a bad idea. The regret will be permanent and real. Due to hyper-sensitivity while being high, you’ll also feel it a whole lot more.
While not dangerous by any means, odds are you’ll come back with a whole lot of junk food. You’re probably going to forget all the essential items you needed to buy as well!
Going to the dentist
This is what nightmares are made of. Going to the dentist high is a situation that no one likes. Sitting there with gauze in your mouth for an hour is uncomfortable. And quite frankly there are better places to be.
Don’t WebMD symptoms
Odds are you had already died yesterday. There’s no coming back from that, so don’t even worry about it.
Best Things To Do When High at Your Fingertips
A carpenter is only as good as his toolbox. Cannabis, much like a drill, hammer, or wrench is a tool. To be an excellent carpenter, you must first harness your skills. And to be a good stoner, you must learn what to do with your time. If not, it’s all wasted away. Giving a real-life image to the lazy stoner persona.
Now that you’ve got a full list of activities and exercises to experience when high, what are you waiting for?
