Everyday activities can be more fun when you’re high. Whether it’s a hobby or pastime like reading, playing video games, or doing the crossword, cannabis just makes things better. And brainteasers? Well, cannabis can really kick them up a notch, either making them harder or allowing you to discover new creative solutions you wouldn’t have thought of.

Sudoku is a signature Japanese puzzle that has become popular all over the world for its tricky, intuitive logic and varying range of difficulty.

You can find puzzles in the newspaper or download an app so you always have some on hand.
