5 Weed Hacks If You’re Having Trouble Getting High

At some point in your life, if you smoke weed daily, you are probably going to get to a point where the highs start to lag, where euphoria starts to feel sluggish and and hard to conquer. If that’s you, here are five tricks you can try to help get you where you want to be.

Change Your Environment

Try smoking in a new place. It might not get you higher, but a change of scenery might help inject a different kind of high. So instead of smoking in your room or on you couch, take a walk. Find a new spot. And light up. Shaking things up is usually not a bad thing, regardless of outcome.

Smoke It Slow

Take nice slow hits. Instead of filling your entire lung capacity with smoke, try filling it about one-third of the way. Fill the rest with fresh air. You’ll make that joint last longer, if nothing else.

Take A Tolerance Break

Perhaps the reason you’re not feeling the high these days is because you’ve been smoking too much and you just. can’t. get. there. This is basically your body adapting to being high all the time.

Try giving up the hits for a few days or a couple of weeks — enough time for your cannabinoid receptors to replenish. Afterwards, you might just return to those highs you remember having when you first started smoking.

Ghost Hits

The pros know this trick. Just hold the smoke in your lungs until it’s gone. When you breathe out, hardly any smoke, if any, should be released.

Drink Alcohol

study in the journal Drug and Alcohol Dependence showed that alcohol (ethanol) increased the rate of marijuana effects, citing: “For many of the drug combinations, when subjects consumed ethanol they detected marijuana effects more quickly, reported more episodes of euphoria and had higher plasma THC levels than when they consumed placebo ethanol.

These data suggest that ethanol may increase the absorption of THC resulting in an increase in the positive subjective mood effects of smoked marihuana and contributing to the popularity of this drug combination.” Just be careful and know your tolerance!
