Ten Cannabis Tips For First-Time Smokers
Feeling adventurous? Want to try cannabis for the first time but don’t know where to start? No worries, here go ten tips on how to do it right. Just make sure you read them before you take the first hit, okay?
You May Not Get High
Yeah. Many people, in fact, don’t get high on a first attempt. If you feel like you’re not getting high, don’t get confused. Take a break, choose another product, and try next time. Most likely you will hit it (pun unintended, yeah).
If you feel like you still don’t get high, maybe, you don’t inhale properly. Let the smoke fill your lungs. Your body will let you know right away — that euphoric feeling is hard to miss.
Drink water. Drink more
Solid smoke requires tons of water. If you don’t want to have a desert in your mouth and burgundy-colored eyes, please, make sure you have a couple of gallons around. You will thank us later, we promise.
Choose A Right Piece
It’s your first, so there is no need to do a gravity bowl. Seriously, don’t. Massive bong rips and dabs won’t make any good; in the worst case scenario, you’ll suffer huge paranoia attack.
Start with a little bowl or a light joint and work your way up to more advanced consumption methods. Don’t worry; you’ll get there.
Download an app — munchies come after you
Preparing for munchies is a smart move. Most likely, you wouldn’t be so comfortable wandering around looking for food (and please, don’t drive when you’re high). Make the first experience convenient and get ready in advance by downloading a preferred courier app. You’re all set.
Many people, when trying weed for the first time, eventually pass out and wake up eight hours after. Anyway, even if you’re super tough and manage to stay awake, you may feel heavy-bodied and not able to move. Make sure you’re in a safe environment where you can relax and fall asleep.
Smoke In A Safe Place
Speaking of a safe place — make sure you get your first hit with friends your trust. And always follow the Number One Rule: if you didn’t see it rolled, don’t smoke it. You don’t want to get high in an unfamiliar environment with a bunch of strangers, believe us.
Know / Learn Where To Stop
If you feel stoned out of your mind after one hit, pass on the joint in a rotation. Don’t try to melt your face off. Taste the smoke. Dive into joy. Don’t go beyond your limits.
Find A Tribe
Once you jump into consuming cannabis, you may want to have a group of friends that you can smoke with. You will meet these people for a group sesh when you get bored by smoking at home. Build a connection, have fun, and grow together (like, literally!).
Get Ready To Hop Onto Cannabis Bandwagon
Beware: it may be love from the first hit. Prepare to explore beautiful terrains of cannabis strains and products, indulge into the sea of experimentation and joy. Just do it responsibly!
