Here are a few things that can help stretch your cannabis budget. I use medical cannabis and have found some tricks to help make it more potent / last longer.

Note: I mostly use edibles, so some of the items mentioned below may not apply. Read all 6 below, some you probably know some you may not.

1) Get a good product and don't neglect the CBD. I have found that without CBD, I seem to develop a faster tolerance to weed. Adding CBD (for me) seems to enhance the effect and keep it working more consistently.

2) Try decarbing. Gram for gram, I find well decarbed weed stronger as an edible than vaped (although it takes about an our to start to work). I purchased the 'Ardent' decarboxylator. It is a bit pricy ($220 CAD) however I have easily made my money back. It heats it to the exact temp for the exact amount of time to decarb the product well. Gram for gram, I get much more effect out of edibles when using these methods.

3) Grind *after* decarbing. Otherwise the sticky trichomes just get stuck to your grinder. After it is decarbed it grinds more easily.

4) Supplement with folic acid. Folic acid enhances the biological effect of cannabinoids (see study below) and cannabinoids can reduce the uptake of folic acid (i.e. easy for stoner to become deficient). The supplement methylfolate is a more biologically active form of folic acid and (at least here in Canada) is very cheap.

5) Liberally add black pepper to your diet. Black pepper contains piperine which has been shown to significantly increase the bioavailability of CBD (perhaps THC too). In the study below, it increased the bioavailability by 2.5x! I.e. 2.5 times more CBD actually enters your blood stream when piperine is added to the diet. Also black pepper is a bit of an MAOI which can enhance the effects. See study below. Additionally, black pepper contains substances that inhibit anandamide reuptake. I.e. boosting the endocannabinoid system.

6) After decarbing and grinding I measure out the exact amount I want. Stick it in your mouth but before you swallow put a teaspoon of olive oil in your mouth. Then literally chew the weed and olive oil together for a few minutes before swallowing. This mechanically extracts the ingredients and mixes it into the oil. Ingesting with oil also increases the absorbtion as they are fat soluble. Also, olive oil contains oleic acid which converts to oleamide. Oleamide has its own cannabimimetic effects.

Using these 6, I have cut my spending to about $100 (Canadian) every 3 months.
