You’ve tried smoking joints with your mouth, but what about with your eyes? Sounds crazy, right? Or maybe it’s brilliant! Since your eyes are inside your skull, the smoke hits your brain almost instantly. Smoking through your eyes makes you 150% more high and works twice as fast. Wow!
This method of smoking is being popularized by college student and cannabis enthusiast April F. Day. According to Day, she first got this wild idea after having her wisdom teeth removed. “The dentist told me I wasn’t supposed to smoke after the procedure, but I smoke every day,” she stated.
“Some of my roommates suggested I try edibles, but I don’t like the high I get from edibles. I just wanted to smoke,” Day continued, “I figured, well, the only reason they told me not to smoke was so I wouldn’t hurt my mouth. That’s when I realized — I don’t even need my mouth to smoke!”
According to Day, using an eye socket to smoke is easier than most people would assume. First, you have to open your eyes as wide as possible. Then, you put the joint up to the corner of your eye. Plug your nose with your fingers and try to breathe in through your nose while it’s plugged. A vacuum will form behind the eyes, sucking all the smoke up through your eye socket and into your brain. Voila!
Day’s wisdom tooth procedure was over a year ago, and she can now smoke using her mouth just fine; however, she still prefers smoking using the eye method. There are a ton of benefits to smoking this way besides just getting a quick, intense high. For starters, smoking through your eyes instead of your mouth helps you avoid dry mouth and excessive coughing. Of course, as a tradeoff, the itchy, red eyes will be significantly worse.
Another bonus of this smoking method is that you will always be the life of the party. It’s a great conversation starter and a mind-blowing trick. According to April Day, she’s become notorious at her university for being able to inhale blunts through her eyes. “Plus, I never smudge my lipstick,” she smiled, “although my eyeliner is a bit of a mess.”
Is Smoking Through Your Eyes Dangerous?
Yes! And it’s probably impossible. Happy April Fool’s Day! Please do not attempt to smoke weed (or anything else) through your eyes. Stay lifted, and don’t get fooled!
