Snoop Dogg reveals why he always microwaves his blunts before smoking them

Snoop Dogg’s brand has become so synonymous with weed that I expect there are crowds of people who go through their days blindly believing that the American rapper actually invented cannabis. The superstar stoner—or ‘Doggfather’ as he’s affectionately known—has always been incredibly transparent about his favourite extracurricular activity, and now we’ve been gifted with Snoop’s most valuable weed wisdom: always microwave a joint for approximately 11 seconds before smoking it.

Now, you might be thinking, ‘a store-bought curry and rolled blunt don’t appear to be natural neighbours in the microwave,’ however, you’d be wrong. During a 2010 interview with Canadian musician and presenter, Nardwuar, the rapper was prompted to explain himself after he casually began to roast his pre-rolled blunt.

According to Snoop, by placing your cannabis concoction in the microwave for a mere 11 seconds, you can “trap all the ingredients inside.”

The ‘Drop It Like It’s Hot’ singer has been known for sharing some wild secrets to the public. In 2008, he shocked fans everywhere by revealing that he was only eight years old when he first dabbled with marijuana. More recently, Snoop dominated headlines after admitting to TV host Jimmy Kimmel that 89-year-old Willie Nelson was the only living human who could outsmoke him. Imagine the lung capacity it takes to beat the legend at his own game…

Back to the microwaving magic. Herb—the internet’s resident home for cannabis enthusiasts—recently corroborated Snoop’s theory. The publication went into an extreme level of detail, so bear with me as I attempt to break it down in the simplest way possible.

Decarboxylation is a term that circulates within the weed-smoking community often. Primarily, it refers to the process of heating weed in order to activate the tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). For example, if you’re looking to make edibles, it’s essential you first go through the decarboxylation process before mixing your cannabis with your tasty treats. If the THC and cannabidiol (CBD) are not activated, you will not experience anything when you consume them.

Essentially, no decarboxylation, no high.

Another term to remember is terpenes, which—according to Healthline—are naturally occurring chemical compounds found in plants and some animals. They’re responsible for the aromas, flavours, and even colours associated with various types of vegetation. In terms of cannabis, terpenes are what make certain strains smell or taste different from others.

Now, if you put a blunt in the oven, in order to start the decarboxylation process, there’s a chance some of the terpenes will evaporate. However, by putting a blunt in the microwave for a short period of time, it still allows for the heat to activate the THC, without losing those crucial flavours.

So, as already suspected, Snoop truly is the King of weed—spreading wisdom throughout the huffing and puffing dragon land to his loyal and loving subjects.
