Puff, puff, don’t pass on these Tumblr gems.
Weed culture has grown stronger than ever, especially as more and more states recognize legal marijuana, leading to an explosion in thoughtful writing and commentary around this wonderous little plant. Pot is being taken seriously for perhaps the first time in the modern era, setting aside the lazy goofiness of stoner culture for a more mature, trendy look.
Stoners who worry that this all feels a little self-serious shouldn’t fret, though. There’s one smoky corner of the internet where the aesthetic joys of pot still reign supreme, a little smoke spot around the corner called Tumblr. Here are the best Tumblr blogs to follow when you’ve got a little buzz going.
The best weed Tumblr blogs
Looking for a steady stream of stoner content to get you through your next bus ride or rotation? The Daily Chief delivers humorous memes and aspirational joint constructions to brighten up the feeds of stoners of all levels. This blog is like a blunt all your friends through in on, so expect to get a little bit of something from every part of the weed internet. If you aren’t looking for original content, you’ll enjoy this sampler pack.
Ever wanted to take a look at a dispensary but live in a state where bud isn’t legal yet? The Sacred Leaf describes itself as a “weed startup,” serving subscribers with a mix of artful pictures of fresh flowers or golden concentrates. According to their site, they haven’t opened for business yet, but they’re consistently posting new content. It’s interesting to watch the development of social media presence in an emerging industry, so get in on the ground floor.

The happiness-focused stoner behind Stoners Euphoria has a mission statement for why they launched the blog. “I believe in the power of Marijuana. It has changed my life, and I will never be able to express how much this plant has done for me. It has allowed me to recover from dark times in my life and come out on top. It was through this plant I was able to find meaning in this world.” You can follow a curated journey to weed nirvana through this steady feed of memes, smokers blowing clouds, and artsy flower shots.
4) Apt 420
Could you care less about weed culture but love bud flowers? Apt 420 delivers nothing but HD photos of high-quality flowers. While many blogs shoot with lighting that makes buds glow like they’re coated in honey, Apt 420’s photography is almost rustic, free of glamour and focusing on the plant. The blog’s shop occasionally sells vape cartridges, if you’re interested in taking a peek inside the concentrates industry along with old-fashioned green goodness.
Fastest Sloth Alive is a weed-only blog, free of commentary or identity. The only words found on the site are “weed, cannabis, marijuana” under the description. But with a quick scroll through the feed, it’s clear you’ve found a blog that celebrates the pure of weed. Made up almost entirely of close up shots of sparkling nugs and artistically rolled joints—with the odd cat thrown in for good measure—Fastest Sloth Alive is a solid pick if you’re looking for minimalism in your artsy weed pictures.
6) Go Weed
Based out of Portugal, Go-Weed curates original pictures from smokers around the world with only two requirements for submission. First, your pictures have to be high quality. Second, they need to belong to you. You can send in your buds, your pieces, or just a joint you rolled up extra nice. Curious about the curator? Their posts have their own section.
7) High Ideas
Stoners may not have a reputation as thought leaders, but anyone who’s sat in a circle knows that on occasion, pearls of wisdom fall from the mouths of the buzzed. High Ideas is a home for those ideas. Sadly, it isn’t updated frequently. But this self-described place “to share creative, interesting, funny, and even mind-blowing thoughts or creations” remains as an archive of brilliant high-deas. Some pretty heavy thoughts live alongside ruminations about dating and societal behaviors, revealing the existential side of the stoner world. It’s plenty silly, but there’s surprising depth to be found.

8) The Glitch
Ok, this may not have anything to do directly with weed, but take a few minutes to surf the pot art dystopia that is The Glitch and you’ll see why you would clearly enjoy it more while high. This GIF artist builds stunning psychedelic GIFs that you can enjoy sober or adore after a joint. Put on a Grateful Dead album, spark some indicia, and turn down the lights, and stare at some art to scratch that spot behind your third eye.
While many smokers do have a ritual, the truth is that most stoners don’t smoke the same way every day. Sure, you probably have your favorite papers, but some Mondays just don’t strike you as a joint day. Just because you smoke weed doesn’t mean you don’t contain multitudes. My Weed Today is a simple record of this truth, a blog that records one woman’s different smoke sessions. October 17 at 3:49pm? A blunt on a hammock. December 7 at 5:36pm? Smoking a bowl in a car. It’s an odd but amusing reflection of the stoner’s journey.
