Now that cannabis is legal, we can look back and laugh at some of the madness of the past. We stoners have participated in some wackiness, some of us more than others. Take, for example, the lengths that we have gone to get baked. The cannabis community has not always been privileged to the innovation of today. There was a time when selling cannabis paraphernalia could get you in trouble. To mix it up, you had to get creative.

Need a hint? Here are some clues to help you out!

Clue #1

Hot knives are the old-school smoking method. It was a common way to smoke hash or oil, but you could also hot knife flowers. Today, we have replaced hot knives with electric nails and quartz bangers. Using a stove element, you heat the ends of two butter knives and sandwich the hash between them. Many people cut the end off of a bottle to catch all the smoke — those with experience just put the knives near their mouths. Needless to say, accidents happened often. There were many facial burns shaped like butter knives thanks to this method.

Clue #2

Apple pipes are a classic for any stoner in a pinch. To make one, start with a small tube through the apple designating one side for your mouth and the other as a bowl. Then, carve out a bit more space for your bud to sit and suck up as much of the apple juice as possible. Place your bud in the hole, light it and inhale. The best part of an apple pipe is that it’s edible; if you get a bad case of dry mouth, take a bite out of the side.
