Hygge: 3 Easy Ways to Embrace the Danish Word for Comfort – The Stoner Way

Hygge [hue-guh] (n.): Danish word used to describe the Art of Happiness by creating warmth, coziness, and the nurturing of a general wellbeing.

This word has been a source of inspiration for cozy-seekers everywhere, and has resonated particularly well with our little cannabis community.

Why, you ask? Who doesn’t want to be comfy af at all times!

Hygge represents everything that’s good about the world, and so does weed. So we thought we’d give you three easy tips on how to incorporate hygge into your stoney lifestyle.

Enjoy, and stay comfy!

1. Get a cozy set-up before you do anything

Before you even start smoking, you gotta set the mood.

And if you’re trying to accomplish hygge, that means to surround yourself with things that make you feel good.

Hot cocoa, a fuzzy rug, thick socks, and a notebook to draw in (I personally wouldn’t bring in the dried leaves, but to each their own) make for a comfortable and relaxing hygge space to enjoy your cannabis in.

Turn on some chill lo-fi beats to complete your atmosphere. Kick back, relax, and smoke up some Blue Dream in comfort and style.

2. Grab a hygge smoking buddy

Nothing is more comforting, or more hygge, than spending cozy relaxing time with a loved one.

Cuddle up with your boo or your bestie to share a bowl for two of a relaxing strain like Girl Scout Cookies (or GSC).

If you really want to go the extra mile, a pillow fort may be in order.

In any case, your stoney hygge moment will be even more enhanced by inviting someone you love to bundle up with you.

Chances are, this newly cold weather is making them yearn for hygge just as much as you.

3. Stock up on blankets

Maybe I didn’t stress this enough… hygge is all about incorporating as much comfort into your lifestyle as possible.

Surround yourself with soft things! It’ll feel even better as soon as your puffing on a soft and comfortable strain like Granddaddy Purple (or GDP).

If your blankets from last winter are starting to feel a little rough or scratchy, it may be time for an upgrade.

Our research shows that if you surround yourself with soft and comfortable things, your weed is 420% danker.

Okay, maybe we made up that statistic, but there’s gotta be some truth to it!
