Why Some Don’t Have A High The First Time They Consume Weed

As more people have access to legal marijuana –  more first timers are getting a little confused – especially about the high.

More people are trying marijuana. Canada is fully legal and over 50% of the US population have recreational weed access.  The social stigma is almost gone also as over 85% of the population believe it should be legal in some form.  There are decisions on how (old school by smoking, current with gummies or vapes), where and alone or with others.  After prepping it though, occasionally there is another question – why some don’t have a high the first time consume weed.

Despite what we know of marijuana tolerance, the more you’re exposed to cannabis the less it affects your, the phenomenon of not feeling anything the first few times you consume affects a number of first timers. Experts have different theories as to why this happens.

One of the most prominent theories states that in order for people to experience weed properly, they must first learn how to do it correctly. People need to be exposed to the drug repeatedly until their body understands what it’s supposed to feel. Experts call this a “sensitization period,” when THC interacts with the cannabinoids in your system a few times in order to activate them and to produce that high feeling. It may take a couple of sessions before you smoke and know that you are actually high versus feeling what you think you should be experiencing.

Smoking verus other methods my also be a reason.  Smoking can be a bit tricky. You my be inhaling cannabis but keeping the smoke in the mouth, which prevents the THC from making its way to your bloodstream.

There’s not one definitive answer when it comes to cannabis and its effect on our bodies, but it’s always hard to do something for the first time, whether that’s smoking weed or getting a tattoo. Your expectations, the people you’re with, and your biology will have a hand in your first couple of experiences with weed, which is why it’s important to be patient and open minded.
