Marijuana highs can be influenced by a wide variety of factors. Here are some tips that can help you get a reliably great high.
Getting high is super easy, but it can also be intimidating, particularly for newbies or people who’ve had negative experiences with marijuana. One of the most curious aspects about marijuana is how different it can affect people.
Unlike alcohol, which kind of has a life of its own, marijuana highs are fickle and can be easily influenced by outside factors. Your location, the way in which you’re consuming the drug, your tolerance level and more are all factors that can and will influence your high, which can understandably make some people nervous.
Here are 5 tips that can help you get the best marijuana high you can get:
Prepare in advance
If you’re someone who likes to prepare, go for it. Buy your favorite snacks and most refreshing drinks and have them nearby for when you’re getting ready for your smoke session. If you’re smoking alone, make sure to do it in a place that’s comfortable and to cue up something light and comforting, maybe your favorite show or a movie you’ve been meaning to catch up with. Have a book ready or prepare a music playlist. Some foresight can really upgrade a regular high to a really amazing one.
Make sure your weed is properly stored
Marijuana flower should be stored in a cool and dark place, somewhere that’s away from moisture and direct sunlight. It’s best to store your weed in a glass or metal container, taking it out of the plastic baggie in order to preserve the potency of your product. Weed that’s properly stored will always be more effective, better smelling and with way better flavor.
Use foods to enhance your high
If you want to try something new, use foods to enhance your high, whether that’s by consuming mangoes (here’s why you should experiment with marijuana and mangoes in quarantine) or by snacking on something delicious when the munchies hit you. If there’s one thing that cannabis does right is increasing the flavors of all foods; don’t let the munchies go to waste and enjoy yourself.
Try something new
Keep in mind your tolerance level
The most important thing you can do in order to prevent a bad high is to keep your tolerance level in check, whether it’s too high or low. If your tolerance level is too high, you’ll most likely burn through an entire joint without enjoying much of it. Try taking a two week break and coming back to it, letting your body breathe for a second and reboot itself. If your tolerance is too low then you should be careful in order to avoid bad highs; smoke slowly and take breaks. See: 7 Easy Ways To Lower Your Marijuana Tolerance
