With cannabis laws being relaxed around the ACT, and the conversation around federal legalisation growing, here at Lifehacker, we’re giving you everything you need to know about smoking cannabis if you choose to partake. To help any weed newbies (much of the Lifehacker staff included), we’re covering all the basics for beginners.
In this video, John Short of California Alternative Caregivers in Venice, California shows the proper way to clean your pipe. All you need is a Ziploc bag and some commercial pipe cleaning liquid. (If you don’t have that available, some rubbing alcohol and coarse salt will do just fine.) Simply submerge the pipe in the liquid in the bag and shake until all the burned-up bits come out.
Then rinse in warm water, dry and you’re ready to light up again!
