Boofing Marijuana Is A Thing, But Not Why You Think.

Dear Stoner: I read that pouring a beer in your butt will get you wasted faster. Could I do the same with pot?

Dear Enema Stone: Don’t boof your buds to get high, dude. Don’t boof anything, for that matter. Shoving drugs like ketamine or alcohol up your ass (known as “boofing” among scholarly wooks and “butt chugging” in the frat crowd) takes advantage of the high amount of blood vessels and capillaries in the rectum, which speed up the absorption process for faster, stronger intoxication. But it can quickly turn into overdosing and alcohol poisoning for those stupid enough to try it.

There are such things as cannabis-infused suppositories, but they’re not for recreational purposes. Patients suffering from cancer, extreme bouts of pain and other debilitating afflictions typically use them for a stronger form of relief that can last up to eight hours. However, cannabis-infused suppositories aren’t psychoactive, so boofing pot wouldn’t bring the head change you were hoping for. Keep those cheeks closed, please.

Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Denver with no paywalls.
