Horrible Cannabis Hacks That You Should Never, Ever Try

In the past, we've brought you some of the handiest cannabis hacks around. But for all of the wonderful, thoughtful ideas that intrepid cannabis users have had, there have been some truly strange ones as well. Here are just a few.

The apple pipe

Definitely the most classIc of the horrible hacks, the apple pipe has been a standby for what feels like eons. But let's get real: It's a waste of a perfectly good apple and a perfectly good nug. As Matt Damon famously asked in "Good Will Hunting," "How do you like them apples?" The answer? Not very much.

Smoking out of a toaster

As this list of top-of-the-line toasters shows, your modern toaster has many, many settings for whatever your heart desires...so long as it's, you know, bread (or at least breadish). There's a good reason there's no setting for "OG Kush" between "Light" and "Dark" toast. Just get a vaporizer instead.

The Starburst pipe

"Mmm, these fruit candies are so sweet and delicious. But you know what they really need? Burning hot plant matter," said no one, ever. If you do this, your house will smell like a sugar refinery that caught fire.

The pizza crust one-hitter

Credit where credit is due: The people who made this clearly didn't want to waste any part of the pizza, which is commendable. And, yes, it's true, pizza and cannabis pair together incredibly well. Just...not like this. Never, ever like this.


The late-John Wayne's 2,000 acre California ranch was listed for sale earlier this year with an asking price of $8 million. And while the site could be used for anything from planting a vineyard to raising cattle, the real estate agent promoting the site thinks it'd also be perfect for cannabis cultivation. Finding a buyer for Wayne's old ranch hasn't been easy as the property has been listed and unlisted in the past.
