17 of the Best Things to do While Stoned or High
Whether you’re a casual weed smoker or someone who smokes on a daily basis, the time is guaranteed to come when you find yourself bored out of your mind and want to do something new or experience something you do regularly, but in a different way. Sure, you could lounge on the couch and flip through channels, or just hang out with your crew of buddies the entire time, but what if you had a list of things that were out of the ordinary for you to try while you’re smoking it up? What if you had a bucket list of sorts where you could check off some of your favorite things that you’ve tried, or want to try?
There are a few classic things you can do while you’re high that are extra amazing, and even though they might seem like things you do every day, they can be a lot more awesome if you think about them in a different way. Here are 17 of our favorite things to do when you’re baked.
1 – Netflix and Chill Out…
There is nothing better than kicking back and watching an old classic on Netflix when you’re stoned. Suddenly, your old favorites that you haven’t seen in years have a new flavor – the sounds, the colors, the plotline – all can seem like it’s an entirely new experience that changes the way you feel about the whole film.
Although this may seem like a very basic, very normal activity when you’re stoned or not stoned, it’s always nice to be able to relax and enjoy either some new shows or movies that you’ve never seen before, or enjoy old classics with a new set of eyes when everything is suddenly more hilarious. Or, spend the next few hours watching some old stoner classics like Pineapple Express, or Fear & Loathing in Las Vegas – we can guarantee those will feel a lot more trippy and funnier when you’re stoned.
2 – Take a Walk and Enjoy Your Surroundings.
You won’t believe how different the world looks when you take a walk stoned. Not really, but it is a nice activity to do right after blazing up. You can get some air in your lungs, take in the local sights, and explore your city. You won’t believe the things you’ll notice and that your mind will pay closer attention to as you travel around. Plug in some headphones, take a stroll around the neighborhood, or just walk a few circles around your block. Or, you can even travel on foot to a local restaurant to get a quick bite to eat and then walk off the food after you’re done.
It can be tough to get yourself moving after you get high, but there’s nothing like a walk to get your mind moving, your heart beating, and your imagination spiraling.
3 – Eat. Eat. And then Eat Some More!
Okay, so we know what you’re thinking – you might be thinking you do this anyway, and that it’s already a hardwired part of your typical “activities while stoned playbook.” Well, this time, see if you can make your munchies just a little different than normal. Instead of grabbing for the nearest bag of chips or popping those same old pizza rolls in the oven, see if you can instead open up that cookbook you haven’t touched in years and bake a recipe that actually uses real ingredients, and takes some time to make.
Take it a little further than you normally do and eat something good. But what if you don’t want to cook? No problem – we’ve still got the eating part covered.
If you don’t want to cook, or you just don’t feel like spending all that time and effort, instead, go to a new restaurant and try that delicious dish that you’ve been waiting to try for a while. You’ll be blown away by how good everything tastes, especially when you’ve given your taste buds the treat of trying something entirely new. And hey, you might find that you’ve discovered your new favorite place, and the next time you try it, it might taste entirely different.
4 – Listen to music.
Your favorite hits transcend into something magical and entirely different when you’re high. There’s nothing like surrounding yourself with music and completely zoning out to your favorite songs by plugging in your headphones or switching on your surround sound speakers and turning up the volume a little louder than you usually do. And if you’re feeling extra adventurous or energetic, shut the door and use that magical vibe to whip out a couple of dance moves. You might find yourself getting lost in the music and enjoying yourself doing something a little different than just melting into the nearest soft surface.
And, it’s also a great way to experience music that you’ve never heard before, too. Give something a listen that you’ve been holding out on – you might just discover your new favorite artist or song when doing so. Check out a Spotify playlist of a genre of music that you like, but with new and unique artists, and see what you can discover.
5 – Play video games.
This might seem like a no-brainer, too, especially if you’re an avid video game player, but playing video games while stoned is a wildly different experience than it is while you’re sober. The lights, noises, and graphics are all more intense and seem more real when you’re in the universe of the game, making it a worthwhile pastime to do while high. And, who knows – your skills might even improve then, too.
Plus, it’s a great activity if you’re just looking to stay at home and chill, but also socialize a little bit with your friends. If you have a crew of friends who play video games, hop online and join them for a few games and see if you enjoy the game a little differently. Plus, it’s a great time-waster.
6 – Cook something new.
If you’re not up for doing something too active, but you still want to do something productive, try cooking a new dish. The new tastes and smells will be exciting and fresh, and you can move at your own pace as you whip up the meal. Bonus points if you pretend you’re on MasterChef.
7 – Go to a museum.
This activity is especially valuable if you don’t typically find museums interesting. If you live nearby a museum, take a stroll around the place to see if you’re more engaged and interested in the exhibits than you usually are. It’s likely you might even find that it’s your new favorite place to visit after you go.
Plus, museums are a great place to people watch or to explore with friends. When you’re with others, you can chat about what you’re seeing or explore areas of the museum that you’ve always avoided.
8 – Chat with an old friend.
When you’re stoned, you never know what thoughts might come to your mind. It could be worthwhile to call up an old friend and chat with them for a while while you’re feeling a little less inhibited than usual and see if you can reconnect with them. Or, if there’s no one you feel like dredging up old business with, start a Facetime chat with someone you have talked to recently, like your siblings or your best friends and see what they’re up to. Spending time chatting with loved ones is something we take for granted nowadays, so it’s always nice, even when you’re stoned, to check in with someone outside of your regular touchpoints.
And, it’s always worth it to call someone you haven’t talked with in a while.
7 – Ride a rollercoaster.
This one’s for those who have easy access to a local amusement or water park – riding a rollercoaster while you’re stoned is easily one of the wildest feeling experiences that you will ever undergo in your life. It’s a wild adventure, and one that’s way out of the ordinary.
Of course, it might take a little more planning if you don’t live in an area around a roller coaster, but it’s definitely an experience that we recommend trying at least once.
10 – Exercise.
If you’re an active person, you might enjoy performing some light cardio or aerobic activity while you’re high. Don’t go too overboard because you might end up feeling a little sick or lightheaded, but exercising when you’re stoned can feel really refreshing.
This goes along the same lines as taking a walk, but you could try some light weight lifting, biking, rowing, or anything else that you enjoy at the gym or at home that gets your heart and your muscles working. Some people really enjoy exercising stoned – it’s all up to you and what you think you can handle.
11 – Clean.
Some people can get a lot accomplished when they’re high, and cleaning is the perfect example of putting that sudden burst of energy to good use. Use that healthy productivity to get your house or apartment sparkly clean and see if you can tidy up someplace you haven’t cleaned in a while – like that messy hall closet. You can use your extra concentration powers to good and spend your time wisely.
12 – Go to the bar.
If cross-buzzing doesn’t bother you, find your closest chill bar and kick back and relax with your friends. Even if you don’t drink, you might find that the atmosphere and the company is an excellent experience that only gets better when you’re high.
13 – Do something creative.
What gets your creative juices flowing? Is it painting, writing, or making music? Whatever floats your boat, do something creative so that you’re using the best of your time – and your mind.
It’s always a good use of your time to do something creative that makes you think in a different way than you usually do, but when you’re stoned, you might find yourself exploring different things or different ways of doing things you’re used to doing. So, if you’re a musician of any kind, you might find yourself playing different songs, or exploring the same songs in a different way or with a different vibe. So it’s always a great idea to sit back and see what creativity you can make flow out of you.
14 – Organize your closet.
Sound boring? Not while you’re high! Take some time to go through your closet and get rid of everything you don’t want, and organize the things you do want to keep. You’ll find it’s time well spent, and if you turn on some music while you’re doing it, you might just enjoy it.
Plus, you’ll manage to take something off your never-ending to-do list, which is always a perk.
15 – Take a hot bath.
Taking a hot bath on any regular day is the ultimate relaxation activity. But when you’re stoned? There’s nothing better. The warmth of the water, the steam in the bathroom – it all adds up to an overall pleasant experience.
Add that with a couple of candles, some music, and some bubble bath, and you’ve basically got yourself a spa day.
16 – Yoga.
If you like yoga, now’s the time to do it. Even if you aren’t a yoga fan, it could be a good time to try it out when your mind is in a different space than it usually is. It’s relaxing, it’s a great activity, and it’s even more fun and relaxing when you’re high.
If you can’t make it to a studio, at home yoga is just as good. There are tons of Youtube videos or apps on your phone to watch yoga videos where they walk you through all of the moves.
17 – Cozy up in bed.
Wrap up in a warm, fuzzy blanket, turn on the TV or plug in your headphones, and chill out to the max. Nesting around in your own bed is even more relaxing when you’re stoned. And the bonus? Even if you fall asleep, it’ll be the best nap of your life.

25. Get crafty
Creativity is a bi-product of the brain while on cannabis. You might find your brain wandering off and possibly feel somewhat distracted. This is the effect of your neurons making new connections and your brain expanding. So.. why not put this to good use right?! You could try some wood working, crocheting, scrap-booking, jewelry making, sculpting, or even MacGyver your own bong out of found household items. The world is your oyster when it comes to this one. If crafting isn’t on your list of fun things to do while high, then you should def add it!
26. Take a relaxing bubble bath
Self pampering is key! It’s nice to treat yourself and a high bath could be just what it takes to relax you and bring you to a peaceful state.
27. Listen to a Podcast
I like to think of podcasts as “productive entertainment” because I can usually do that while doing something else. Plus you usually end up learning something or having a laugh or two.
28. Surf the web
This one can get a little overwhelming if you don’t have something in mind. The internet could take over very quick if you don’t have a mission. You might be looking at cats one second and the next thing you know, two hours have gone by and now you’re learning about bonsai tree planting. Pintrest boards and the discover section on Instagram can be a black hole of awesomeness as well. Surfers beware.
A poem, short story, a thought, a list, a feeling. Once the pen touches paper it’ll start to flow.
Not so fun sober, but cleaning can be pretty stress relieving while high. Plus a cleaner house or apartment will make you feel better too.
31. Buy a plant
Trips to the local nursery are always fun while high. I get lost looking at all the different plant varieties and trying to pick out my next house plant.
32. Go on a bike ride
Feel that fresh air against your skin and stretch those legs out. A bike ride is always more fun when you’re high! 😉
33. Catch some Sun rays
Lounge outside and start that tan you’re trying to work on.
34. Go Swimming
Take a dip in the pool or if you dipped into the Indica, the perhaps float on a tube. Relaxing in or by the pool is always a good time high.
35. Do a Crossword or Brain-teaser
Stretch that brain out with a brain teaser or two. TV trivia is always fun too. But who needs TV when you can download an app and play trivia, crosswords or fun brain teaser in the palm of your hand while you hold the joint in the other 😉
36. Play with a pet
This is fun high or not and if you’re not a pet lover, well then.. maybe you just need to play with some more pets. A guaranteed fun-furry time. Bonus points if you hook the cat up with some catnip of their own.
Elevate that third eye and center your body mind and soul with a meditative session.
38. Go Kayaking
A fun way to get a nice upper body workout, a tan and enjoy the water. I usually pack a joint or two for the mission and relax on the water for a couple hours.
39. Go out on a Photo Adventure
Looking for a fun high adventure? Grab that camera and and take a little road trip and snap some pictures. You can take photo’s anywhere. Find a theme and roll with it. Shoot things of the same color, shape.. Maybe shoot animals, or flowers, perhaps document a hike. There’s now right or wrong when it comes to taking pictures. Just do it, and take lots and lots of pictures. At the end of the shoot you’ll end up with a few fun selects for that bare wall at home.
