A verb used to describe the often disappointing process of searching one's room/home/desk (etc.) or collection of dabows for enough shake to pack a bowl or roll a joint.
Shake battles are either won or lost. If an individual finds enough shake to get sufficiently baked then it's a win. However, if the collected shake is smoked and it's not enough, the shake battle is lost.
Can be used in past tense to reference the theater of combat.
"If we're gonna pack that bowl, we'll need to shake battle"
"I just shake battled my desk and won. Sick."
