Whether you are a season consumer or a canna-newbie – sometimes you just want the good times to last
Marijuana is coming into its own. Over 50% of the country has access to weed and Gen Z is wandering away from alcohol toward weed. California sober has become a thing and retirement communities have embraced weed. No matter the time of year, you always want to get the most bang for you buck by making your THC last as long as possible. For the canna-newbie, it is easy. Seasoned marijuana users, like alcohol drinkers, know sometimes the more they smoke, sometimes it is harder to get or prolong the high. Don’t worry, here are 5 hacks to prolong a marijuana high.
Consumers claim having some mango or mango juice an hour before consuming marijuana is a magic trick for a really intense high. This delicious fruit contains myrcene terpenes, which are also present in cannabis. These compounds bind to each other and magic happens. They also make for a pretty healthy treat, which is good for the munchies.
Nuts have also been associated with powerful highs because they contain fatty acids, which bind with cannabinoids and make your high hit you faster. Sweet potatoes supposedly put you in a good mood, which works well if marijuana turns you into a paranoid Debbie Downer.
Channeling all of your marijuana super-powered focus into a physical activity can be really effective, especially if you’ve never done it before. This experience can prove to be really intense and a boost for your metabolism and system.
Smoke in a closed space
Also known as “hot boxing,” smoking up in a confined space amid the fumes can get you high pretty quick. While it might not be super healthy for your lungs, if you’re looking to get high and stay high, hot boxing sounds like a pretty effective method. This does not work for vapes or edibles.
Mix things up
If smoking just isn’t what it used to be, try out different methods of consumption. If you’re a smoker, try vaping or edibles. If you prefer joints, try using a bong. A switch could trick your body and provide a much needed fresh start, making your highs stronger and longer-lasting.
Take a tolerance break
If nothing else works, you might just need to take a break. Marijuana’s lessening effect is due to the fact that your body becomes desensitized to the plant’s psychoactive effects. Most seasoned users swear by this trick. Just like with any other substance, this practice gives your body a cleanse of sorts, providing a fresh start.
