Are you tired of being the person in the background who watches the cool guy do smoke tricks at the smoking circle? We’ve all been there. There’s no shame in committing yourself to smoking isolation until you’ve nailed some smoke tricks to share. We’re going to help you in this endeavour. In this article, you’ll learn the basics of some of the coolest smoke tricks.
I know I’ve arrived at the party to watch many people do some very cool smoking tricks and felt – well – inferior. Mastering the stoner etiquette, showing off your homemade bong and even bringing a stash of homegrown weed sometimes still doesn’t feel good enough. If you smoke weed, it’s almost a birth right to be able to share in those visual oddities that are smoke tricks.
A smoke trick is almost like a moving piece of art that disappears just as quickly as it was created. But it is so damn satisfying to watch someone perform a smoke trick – and even more satisfying when you do it yourself!
So, you want to be cool? Well, so do I. But until the day comes where I really am cool, it’s better for me to keep practicing my smoke tricks alone. We want you all to feel cool too, so we’re going to teach you some of the coolest smoke tricks out there.
As a side note, vaping creates way more “smoke” than a regular joint. If you want to make smoke tricks with some epic clouds of smoke, it’s probably better to use a vaporizer than a joint!
1. Smoke rings: the oldest trick in the book
Take a big puff of vapour or smoke. Let the smoke sit in your cheeks for a few moments. Then open your mouth to form the shape of an O. It’s as though you’re about to kiss someone, but your mouth is slightly open rather than being pursed.
Now, this is up for debate, but I think it’s important. You want to poke your tongue inside your mouth. Don’t stick it out, but poke it all the same. Then use contractions of the throat to push the smoke rings out. You don’t want to blow – this will create some very messy smoke rings. Rather, open and close the throat using the muscles there to push the smoke out of your mouth.
A different method is to open your mouth, make tight lips that go slightly inward, stick your jaw out, and do small coughs.
It can take some practice, but when you nail it, it’s a popular smoke trick!
2. The French Inhale
This is that really cool trick that creates the effect of a passage of smoke travelling from the mouth to the nose or the other way around. It’s kind of a hard trick to nail, but once you get it, it’s second nature.
Get as big a puff as you can inside your mouth. Again, hold it in until it’s time to impress. By pushing the jaw forward slightly and opening the mouth, you can encourage smoke to come out in an upward direction. Then inhale slowly through the nose. A gentle, slow inhalation will create a consistent flow of smoke from the mouth into the nose.
