32 Best Things To Do While High (Fun, Active, or Chill)
Getting high is always fun, but it can be super easy to fall into the same pattern of jumping onto the sofa and “wasting” your high.
If you’re someone who hates vegging out on the sofa or prefers staying active, you can try plenty of great things instead. In fact, some activities might even improve or enhance your overall high!
Whether it’s listening to your favorite band, experimenting in the kitchen, or getting intimate with your partner – we have the ultimate list of things to try after your next smoke sesh.
Fun Things To Do While High When You’re Out and About
If you’re in a legal state, getting out and about when you’re high isn’t the same paranoia fest that it was when things weren’t as legal.
As long as you’re not being obnoxious, smoking where you shouldn’t, or bothering others – there is no reason why you can’t be stoned and out and about enjoying “regular” activities without worrying about someone seeing your red eyes or being “too spaced out.”
But what are the best activities to enjoy when you’re high and out and about?
1. Go to a Concert
Music is one of the best things to enjoy while smoking – it might even have a scientific link.
Daniel Levitin, a professor of neuroscience at McGill University said, "music combined with marijuana tends to produce feelings of euphoria and connectedness to the music and the musicians."
The only thing better than zoning out with your favorite band at home is hearing them live. Concerts offer light shows, visuals, and a bassline you feel pumping through your feet – all things that will be heightened after you’ve hit your piece.
2. Watch a Movie at the Theater
There is nothing wrong with enjoying a film after a smoke, but in the comfort of your own home and sofa – it’s easy to fall asleep.
Heading to your local theater, grabbing some popcorn, and settling in for the latest blockbuster is less likely to make you feel sleepy.
With a screen bigger than most houses and massive sound systems, you’re much more likely to be kept on the edge of your seat and entertained for the duration of the film.
3. Amusement Park
What’s more enjoyable than a day at your local amusement park?
Doing it high, of course! Amusement parks are a great place to head with your friends for a day out you won’t forget, and getting stoned before or during will only enhance your experience.
4. Go Somewhere to People Watch
Being short on cash can make you feel like your options are limited, but people-watching is free.
While most of us won’t admit to it, there are few better pastimes than sitting and watching the world – and people – go by.
Find a comfy spot with a good view, bring a picnic, and don’t forget your herb!
5. Watch the Sunrise, Sunset, or Stars
Stoners and sunrises, sunsets, and stars go hand-in-hand.
Something about the sky is super relaxing, and smoking under it only makes that experience much better.
Grab a big blanket, cushions, and hot chocolate flask, and head out to your favorite place to watch the sky.
6. Hang Out in Nature
Every stoner you’ve ever met “knows a spot,” and you should make it your mission to find all of them.
For most smokers, one of the best things to do is get lost in nature – even if that just means hanging out and smoking a dab pen in front of your favorite view.
7. Visit an Art Gallery or Museum
Want to try something different – getting lost in your local science or history museum can be a great way to pass the time after a smoke.
Weed can make many of us feel more creative, but enjoying other people’s creations is sometimes overlooked. Next time you’re stuck for something to do while high, why not visit an art gallery and see what it has to offer?
8. Comedy Show
Miss those early days when even the smell of marijuana would give you the giggles?
Get yourself down to a comedy show, and you’ll soon be clutching your sides, struggling for breath, and unable to look for friends in the eye for fear of setting you all off again.
9. Mini Golf
Got a competitive side? Mini golf is a great way to spend time with friends whether you’re high or not, but after a smoke, it’s a lot more fun to watch everyone struggle as their high kicks in.
Look for local mini-golf setups in the area – and look out for adults-only or night-golf events to make the most of your time.
10. Go Shopping
Whether you hit the local mall or the grocery store, shopping can be incredibly therapeutic or one of the most stressful parts of your life.
Whether you love or hate shopping, smoking before you go and adding marijuana to the mix can transform and improve your experience.
High Things to Do When You’re Feeling Active and Productive
Some of us stoners – especially Sativa smokers – often enjoy our most active and productive times in the day right after that first smoke.
So if you’re someone who wakes and bakes to start the day, hits the bong before heading to the office, or eats an edible before hiking a mountain – this list is for you.
Yoga can be a great way to relax and a great way to start your day.
Helping you to exercise not only your body but also your mind, yoga has become increasingly popular over the years.
Whether you’re new to the movement or an OG on the mat, smoking, vaping, and dabbing can really help you get into your next yoga session.
If you can, working out high can be a great way to concentrate on your workout and ignore outside influences that you might usually be interrupted by.
Whether you work out indoors or out, why not try working out next time you smoke?
3. Bike Ride
Bikes are a great way you get around, but they’re also the perfect recreational activity – especially as we move into spring.
You can enjoy bike rides alone or with friends and get to know your local city, parks, forests, and beaches a little better – while smoking your favorite strain with the wind in your hair…
4. Any Type of Sport
Plenty of adrenalin sports can be accelerated with a smoking session beforehand – especially snow sports.
So, if you love the snow, take a little treat the next time you head up the mountain.
It’s essential to remember that smoking can impair your judgment and concentration, so if you’re hitting the slopes or any other extreme activity, be considerate of your consumption – absolutely no one wants to whitey halfway down a mountain!
5. Go For a Walk/Hike
Walking and hiking are great ways to stay fit and active while getting fresh air and enjoying your local beauty spots.
Next time you head to “a great spot” with your friends for a smoke, look for routes to hike or walk in instead of jumping in the car – you might even find a better smoke spot to add to your list on the way!
6. Learn Something New
If you find your concentration levels are increased after smoking, why not use your high time to learn something new?
Learning is the best way to keep our brains active for longer, and learning something new – whether it’s a hobby, or a skill, can also be extremely rewarding.
The internet is full of tutorials and videos offering free instructions on almost every skill and subject – why not settle down in front of YouTube next time you light up?
7. Clean and Organize Around the House
Not everyone loves cleaning the house, no matter how motivated we are. But smoking, putting on your favorite station, and embracing your inner-Mrs.-Doubtfire can really make a difference.
If you’re high and feeling productive, getting into the zone before you hit the cleaning cabinet can even help you to enjoy your least favorite chores.
If you find meditating and emptying your head difficult, a great way to get started is smoking beforehand.
Smoking naturally helps you to relax, with some strains helping you to focus – try experimenting with different strains and combinations of Sativas and Indicas to find the herb that works for your meditation sessions.
9. Bake or Cook a New Dish
What comes after marijuana consumption? The munchies! If you’re someone who gets the munchies often, a great way to be productive when you’re high is by cooking meals and baking snacks – and it’ll make you less likely to dive into the snack drawer too.
There are plenty of great cooking videos and baking recipes for free online – and our favorites are the chefs who are stoned themselves, too, like @dope__kitchen on Instagram, for example.
10. Get Artistic
Creating art while high is a practice as old as time. In fact, some of the world’s greatest artists are thought to have smoked weed – including Pablo Picasso, Salvador Dali, and Oscar Wilde.
Whether you love to draw, paint, produce, write, take photos, make videos, sing, or write music – sometimes, one of the best ways to make art is by relaxing with a blunt as you do so.
11. Play an Instrument
Like creating art, playing an instrument is a creative activity that can be enhanced by smoking before or during.
Helping you to relax, concentrate, and tap into your creative side – picking up an instrument after your next smoke sesh could be the start of your success in music!
Fun Things to Do While Stoned When You Want Entertainment and Relaxation at Home
Not everyone is comfortable going out while high, not everyone has the money to throw at entertainment, and honestly – some of us would just much rather be at home.
But that doesn’t mean you can’t still enjoy a bunch of different things when you’re high – even if you are just sitting on your sofa with your weed accessories.
Whether you’re looking for relaxation or entertainment, this is the ultimate list of things to enjoy at home when you’re high!
1. Play Video Games
Smoking and playing a video game are a tradition as old as, well, video games – and why fix something if it isn’t broken?
Whether you play alone, with friends, or online with strangers – doing it high is always a better experience.
2. Watch a Movie
Like video games, getting high and watching a movie is somewhat of a tradition. Now with Netflix, Hulu, Prime, Disney +, Sky, and the rest, you always have an endless collection of movies at your fingertips, so there’s never been a better time to invest in microwave popcorn for smokey movie sessions.

3. Order Takeout
Whether you love them or hate them, munchies are part and parcel of getting high.
Looking for something different to do from home, feeling hungry, and not someone who can get creative in the kitchen?
Now is the time to try that new takeout place you’ve been promising yourself for weeks!
4. Play Board/Card Games
Before televisions and video games, card and board games were the number one form of home entertainment – and they’re making a comeback.
As an increasing number of people make a conscious decision to spend less time in front of screens, board games and cards are a great way to entertain next time you hotbox your living room.
5. Read a Book
Books are a great way to quite literally “get lost” in another world – and smoking can help you do that.
So get comfy, grab your favorite book, a warm drink, and your preferred smoking tool, and go get lost.
6. Listen to Music with Headphones
Yes, concerts are great and sound systems are even better – but you can experience music in a much more intimate way through good headphones at home.
If you love listening to music while you smoke, investing in a good pair of headphones could completely transform how you experience your favorite artists.
These music videos are a good place to start while high.
7. Have Sex
It’s well-known that marijuana can help enhance our senses and pleasure receptors – making having sex or sexual activity potentially more enjoyable…
Could good weed mean better sex? Say no more.
8. Take a Relaxing Bath or Shower
Relaxing in the bath or shower can be an entirely different experience when you hotbox the room at the same time.
The hot water, steam, and smoke work together to increase your level of relaxation, while music and aromatics can be used to add ambiance.
9. Chat With Friends or Family
Sometimes the best thing to do when high is simply to have a good chat. If you live alone or you’re smoking alone, picking up the telephone and calling a loved one can help lift you out of any loneliness you’re experiencing.
10. Give / Get a Massage
Weed and relaxation are best friends, and when you add a massage into the mix, it’s a recipe for total harmony.
So, whether you prefer giving or receiving, booking a massage therapist or treating your partner could really put you on cloud nine the next time you smoke at home!
11. Play With Your Pet
We’ve left the best till last with this one.
What’s better than spending time with your pets? Pets love attention, and we love giving it to them. And after a smoke, there is nothing better than spending time with your four-legged friend.
Whether you head out on a walk, get out the kitty laser, or settle into the sofa for cuddles and snacks, time with your best friend will always be our number one choice after hitting the bong!
However you decide to enjoy yourself after a smoke if you’re indulging in public, remember to check out your State’s local laws on smoking in public and age restrictions.
Always respect those around you – not everyone smokes, and keeping things cool between smokers and non-smokers makes life happier for everyone! Enjoy your smoke!
