Denver Dispensary Shares 4 Ways to Stay Warm When Smoking Outside This Winter

November 20, 2019

Winter weather can take its toll on Coloradoans. Sure, we love to get out and enjoy the snow or hit the slopes, but it makes enjoying your favorite cannabis products from the best weed shops in Denver a challenge. After all, there are some times when you just have to light up your bong outside. But how can you keep warm enough to enjoy your weed? Here are a few tips to try once the temps start to drop:

Bundle Up
Sometimes, all you need to do is bundle up before you head outside. Grab a coat, hat, and scarf and head out the door. To make lighting up easier, consider picking up a pair of fingerless gloves. This will give you control over the lighter and whatever device you’re smoking out of. 
If you’re worried about keeping things discreet and not carrying the smell back into the house, dedicate a coat to smoking and nothing else. When you’re done, you can leave it outside to air out and won’t have to worry about the smell lingering on your clothes when you head to work the next day.

If you don’t have one, create one by hanging a waterproof tarp between a wall, tree, or patio supports where you’ll be smoking.

Winter is the perfect time to enjoy a roaring fire. Why not build one outside in a fire pit? You can even turn it into an event and share a joint or a few hits off the bong with your closest friends. Just make sure someone stays sober to tend the fire. The last thing anyone wants is to have a blaze get out of control and damage their home. If you don’t have space for a fire pit, don’t panic. Grab a few large pillar candles and set them on your outdoor table. They’ll still put off a bit of heat and can add to the ambiance while you smoke.

Sip On a Hot Beverage
Warm beverages are the perfect way to stay toasty outside without having to bundle up or drag a space heater outside to help warm the air around you. Make your favorite, whether it’s apple cider, tea, or hot cocoa and sip in between hits. You can also add some of your favorite cannabis tincture for an added buzz. A word of caution: don’t overdo it with the tincture. Edibles, including beverages will get you high. But it will take a while. Combining edibles with smoking
