5 of Snoop Dogg’s craziest weed stories

It’s a well-known fact that the West coast Cali legend Snoop Dogg is in a committed relationship with marijuana. This decades-spanning love affair has shown no signs of slowing down, with Snoop continuing to reign as king of the stoners. The rapper and personality so often finds himself entrenched in smoky antics, it can be hard to keep track of all the best stories we’ve been lucky enough to be in on. So kick back and relax as we take a look at Snoop Dogg’s top five stories.

1. It’s no surprise that Snoop Dogg was smoking from an early age

Many may not know that the lovingly nicknamed ‘Doggfather’ tried weed from a shockingly early age. In a 2008 interview with Esquire, Snoop revealed that his first dance with the drug was when he was only eight years old. In the interview, the rapper retold fondly that it was his uncle who first introduced him to cannabis and that “they had these little roaches on the table—these part-way-smoked marijuana cigarettes—my uncle asked me, did I wanna hit that roach? And I was like, ‘Yeah.’ He put it on the roach clip for me and lit it up, and I hit that motherf*cker.”

Although surprisingly young, it’s evident that weed has always been an important part of Snoop’s life, with the rapper having said himself that “it makes me feel the way I need to feel.” For him, the drug is all about its healing and connecting properties, something that he has always been outspoken about.

2. Snoop reveals the only man on the planet who can outsmoke him

In a shocking twist, Snoop seceded his title as smoke-out champion in 2022 to the 89-year-old legendary country singer Willie P. Nelson.

The rapper recalled on Jimmy Kimmel Live that he’s never ever hit the time-out button during a smoke sesh, except for the isolated incident of partying with Nelson and concluded that he was “the only person who has ever out-smoked Snoop Dogg.” On the Let’s Go! with Tom Brady, Larry Fitzgerald, and Jim Gray podcast, Snoop mentioned that “me and him were playing dominos one-on-one. He whooping my ass, and I’m just getting higher and higher and higher.”

Nelson then backed the story up in a separate interview with The Daily Beast where he said, “That was over in Amsterdam… he came over and we hit every bar, every smoke place in [the city]. We had a helluva time.” Although Snoop admitted that Bob Marley and Cheech and Chong are up there on the imaginary pot smokers Mount Rushmore of those who could contest his puff, we sure as hell weren’t expecting Willy P. Nelson to show up on that list too.

3. Snoop Dogg has his own blunt roller

If you’ve ever wondered how Snoop manages to smoke so much weed in one day, we have the answer for you. The rapper who revealed recently in a Reddit As Me Anything (AMA) that he smokes 81 joints a day, has his own personal blunt roller (PBR).

Over 500 blunts a week wouldn’t be possible without a little bit of help and Snoop takes good care of his help. The lucky holder of the all-expenses-paid, $50,000-a-year position is Renegade Piranha. She shared all the details on what it’s like to roll 150 blunts a day for the Doggystyle rapper on several podcasts. On The Review podcast with Yarmacrazy, the PBR admitted she had doubts when heading to the interview, thinking it was a scam. She went on to say that she had to go up against other candidates in a “blunt roll off” which she was skilled enough to win.

More insight was given on the position on the Kyle and Jackie O Show, where she mentioned that the position has her rolling blunts for all sorts of celebrity parties, often for the likes of clients like Kid Cudi and Rhianna. She continued by saying: “On average, I do about a quarter pound to a half pound a day, which seems excessive, so that’s roughly like 75 to 150 units per day.”

Piranha’s job has her rolling with “machine-like” accuracy, she said, given just how many blunts she turns over a day.

4. Snoop Dogg once sold a joint for $10,000

The outlandish tale comes from pot-smoking enthusiast Seth Rogen, who recalled in an interview with Variety that “Snoop Dogg once auctioned off a blunt on stage for Alzheimer’s” with the actor going on to note, “I think it went for $10,000.” The sale allowed one lucky donor to walk away with a certified Snoop roll-up.

The auction was organised by Hilarity for Charity, a foundation set up by Rogen and his wife Lauren Miller after her mother was diagnosed with early-onset Alzheimer’s. The fellow weed expert explained that to be “lucky enough to be able to get Snoop Dogg to come perform at your show and auction off a blunt for Alzheimer’s care and research” is a great privilege and really reflects on the good nature of the rapper himself.

5. Snoop Dogg smoked weed in front of the White House

In one of Snoop’s most daring weed-fuelled adventures, in 2018, he took it upon himself to make ganja history by smoking in front of the White House, all just to troll then US President Donald Trump.

In a hilarious set of Instagram videos, we see the celebrity set out on his mission. Unfortunately, it proved harder to complete his pilgrimage given that you can’t stop in front of the White House in a car and the building is surrounded by secret service agents.

Snoop did what he knows best though, and managed to roll up on a bench in full view of the White House, before taking a break to take pictures with fans walking by. The rapper loved trolling Trump during his presidency, exemplified by the release of his single Make America Crip Again in 2018. Defiant in the face of injustice, we love Snoop Dogg’s dedication to the smoke spot.

Snoop reminds us in these stories why he’s still the top dog when it comes to rolling up and rolling loud. Long live the king of the blunt.

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.
