Three Rules Of Productive High — And How To Get There
Life can be boring sometimes. Why not enhance it with cannabis? Virtually any activity could be spiced up with a bud or dab. The main thing is to figure out how high one should be to keep up with tasks on hand.
Dosage control is essential; without it, you’re more likely to turn on TV and spend the rest of the day on your dusty couch (which you desperately need to clean).
Here are three tips to get things done while high. Try them now and thank us later.
1. Find the best strain for your activity
Scheduling your chores? Find out what your dispensary has to offer. Pick something that aligns with your needs.
Sativa-dominant strains are considered to have a lifting effect, helping you to remain “active.” But it’s not entirely accurate. Plenty of indica-dominant strains may replace stimulation of sativa with calming relaxation that allows you to focus.
Finding a ‘get things done’ strain will require a little experimentation. CBD or indica will be a good choice if you are a beginner or prone to anxiety. Hybrids of different proportions can enhance your mental and physical state. Sativa-dominant strains can be overly euphoric so that you won’t be able to focus on your task. However, in small doses, they could kick your ass in the right way. The general rule is simple — less is more.
2. Read labels and find a right dosage
Read the cannabinoid profile on the back of your bag of cannabis. Even if the labels only show a THC/CBD ratio, you can generalize overall potency and choose a correct dosage.
People have different tolerance levels; finding the “sweet spot” is up to you. Using a product or brand over time gives you a familiarity with your tolerance for a particular kind of cannabis or delivery methods. Respect your body and know your limits.
3. Find a right consumption method
Different consumption methods have different onsets and duration. Your overall productiveness depends on the method you choose and the dose you consume.
Here goes a quick review of consumption methods is your productiveness goals.
One-hitters or bats are cylindrical smoking devices that contain one or two hits. It’s a great option for a beginner who wants to control the quantity of cannabis they consume.
Activity suggestions: cooking, speed dating, practicing a foreign language, grocery shopping.
A spoon pipe is one of the most popular ways to consume buds. Bowls are usually small or medium in size, and general dosage is predictable with practice. Take smaller hits to approach the desired level of high.
Activity suggestions: walking the dog, attending a social gathering, cleaning your house.
Large bongs are not the best choice for maintaining a functional buzz. They are designed to provide a user with massive volumes of smoke that get them high very quickly. Try cornering your bowl to maintain a desirable level of high.
Activity suggestions: sorting out emails, making your bed, doing laundry, taking out the garbage, grocery shopping.
Homemade rolls can be tricky. Some people roll fat joints, other prefer skinny, and many do something in between. Keep in mind that the smoke will hit you fast so it would be smart to take a puff or two and wait. For many people, one hit might be enough to stay functional.
Activity suggestions: doing creative work, playing sports, walking the dog.
Edibles are tricky, and going slow is the main rule. Listen to your body, understand your metabolism and tolerance, and opt out for microdosing. It will provide you with functional buzz with positive effects for the mind and body.
Activity suggestions: going to the gym, organizing stuff at your home.
Dabs can be dosed with relative ease, especially shatter or rosin that can be carved off in pieces. Dabbing brings more mental clarity which makes it a good way to tackle mentally intensive tasks.
Activity suggestions: meeting with friends, making phone calls, cleaning your place.
Whatever you choose, remember — less is more. Consume responsibly!
