Yo, yo, yo, what’s up my fellow weed enthusiasts? It’s ya boy Dan here, and today we’re talking about something that might make you wanna hide in the shadows. We all know that smoking weed can cause some serious bad breath, and that ain’t cool. So, let me school you on how to prevent that halitosis from ever happening.
First things first, let’s get one thing straight – weed breath is a real thing. And it sucks. When you’re high af and trying to have a dope conversation with your homies or bae, the last thing you want is for them to be turned off by your stank breath. But why does it happen? Well, it’s all thanks to THC and how it interacts with your body’s cells and receptors.
Basically, when you smoke weed, it can cause “cottonmouth” which is when your mouth gets super dry and saliva production decreases. And when your mouth doesn’t have enough saliva to act as its built-in mouthwash, all sorts of particles, bacteria, and debris are left to linger in there which can make your breath smell like straight up dankness.
But don’t worry my dudes, there are ways to avoid weed breath like a pro. Here are some of my top tips:
1. Practise good oral hygiene
This should be obvious even if you’re not smoking weed. But since we’re talking about preventing weed breath specifically, brushing your teeth twice a day, using mouthwash and flossing can really help remove most of the nasty-smelling stuff in your mouth. And listen up, as cannabis becomes more popular and legal in some places, the chances of experiencing weed breath are significantly increasing. So just keep those chompers clean!
2. Use clean smoking accessories
Dirty pipes or bongs can not only ruin the taste and flavour of your Mary Jane but can also contribute to bad breath. The leftover residue is passed on to the next surface – your mouth! And trust me when I say, the longer you wait to clean out your smoking accessories after every sesh, the worse your weed breath will get.
3. Switch to vaping or edibles
If you’re really serious about avoiding weed breath altogether, then switching from joints or blunts to vaping or edibles might be your best bet. Vaping doesn’t burn the weed so it limits the particles that can enter your mouth and generally reduces cottonmouth. Edibles are also a great option since you don’t inhale anything which prevents weed particles from entering your mouth. Just remember that with edibles you’ll have to wait a bit longer before feeling their effects.
But let’s say you’ve already smoked up and you’re out and about with some serious weed breath happening. Don’t worry fam, I gotchu covered:
– Mints or chewing gum: Quick and easy way to restore normal saliva production while masking the smell of weed.
– Drink or gargle water: Swish it around like regular mouthwash to help remove debris from your mouth.
– Fresh fruit: Apples contain polyphenols which help mask undesirable odours while citrus fruits promote saliva production.
So there you have it – how to avoid that dank-ass weed breath from ruining your vibe. With these tips in mind, you’ll be able to indulge in your love for Mary Jane without worrying about turning people off with your bad breath. Stay lit my friends!
