What to Do When You Run Out of Weed: 6 Tips

It’s been a long day. You’re tired, wound up, and just ready to relax. You can’t wait to get home, plop down on the sofa, and enjoy a bit of your favorite cannabis strain. But the moment you reach for your stash, you make a terrifying discovery — you’re out of weed.

Running out of cannabis is an upsetting situation, one many weed enthusiasts — yourself included — have likely experienced at least once. It doesn’t have to ruin your night, though. Here, we’ve got a few suggestions on what to do when you run out of weed.   

1. Plan Ahead

One of the easiest ways to deal with running out of weed is to make sure you never run out in the first place. A bit of careful planning can help ensure you always have enough cannabis on hand. 

Consider your usage habits and how often you visit the dispensary. Take a look at your current stash. Will you have enough to last you until then? Are you planning to host a few friends for a smoke sesh this weekend? You may need to stock up. Better storage solutions, such as air-tight glass jars, can also help ensure your stash lasts longer. 

2. Consider Delivery Options

Take a quick look at your local dispensary’s website. Many shops offer delivery, allowing you to order your favorite products online and receive them right at your front door. You never have to leave the comfort of your home! You can also pre-order your desired products for store pick-up from some dispensaries, Campfire Cannabis included. 

3. Distract Yourself With Other Activities

Once you discover that you’ve run out of weed, it may be all you can think about. Dwelling on the situation, however, will only make it worse. Instead, find ways to distract yourself. Read that book you’ve been putting off, or challenge your mind with a puzzle. Go for a walk or follow along with a yoga video. Draw yourself a luxurious bubble bath (and, if you enjoy it, pour yourself a glass of wine to go with it). 

4. Scrape the Bottom of Your Bowl

We admit it; this solution won’t provide the best flavor. However, desperate times call for desperate measures, and the leftover resin at the bottom of your pipe bowl can provide an effective high. 

5. Make Use of Vaped Cannabis Flower

The process of vaping decarboxylates fresh cannabis flowers, activating beneficial plant compounds, including THC. In other words, your “used” buds still have plenty of uses. Instead of tossing them, consider cooking with the flowers or eating them raw.  

6. Check Your Grinder

Have you ever looked in your grinder and noticed a lot of leftover bits at the bottom? While it might not look like much, that stuff — known as kief — can come in handy when you’ve run your stash dry. Kief often contains trichomes, which house beneficial compounds like cannabinoids and terpenes. Many people sprinkle it on top of ground buds, but you can also smoke it on its own for a potent hit.
