Set a Budget
Figure out what you have available for a little fun spending each month and stick to it. If you can only spare $100 a month than that should be your limit. Break out your smoke budget from that monthly figure.
$100 / 4 weeks is $25 a week. Depending on where and who you buy weed from, can you stick to smoking two or three grams a week? Maybe, maybe not. So start with setting a budget and then figure out what else you might be able to do in this list.
Split Bigger Buys With Friends
Just like most other things, you get a better price on weed when you buy larger quantities. With a monthly budget set, you’ll find you can stretch that budget further if you pool some cash together with friends for a buy.
Go in an ounce, or quarter pound with a few friends to get better bulk pricing instead of buying grams, eights or quarters.
Of course you’ll need to be able to store it easily, so if you’re really going big you may want to look at vacuum sealing or mason jars to help keep your weed fresh. This is also a good way to setup a budget for using weed by separating and storing weed into logical amounts you can use over time.

In summary, a few easy ways to conserve weed:
- Use a grinder
- Choose a vaporizer over blunts and joints

Grow Your Own
Not everyone has the freedom to do this but if you do it can save you the most over time. There will be an investment in equipment to grow weed at first but after that you will have your own cash crop.

This step can really have a dramatic impact when trying to save money on weed. Even if you just find a better way to get weed at a higher quality. You’ll find you need to smoke way less and less often if the weed is higher potency.
