If you have decided to enjoy legal cannabis and you reside in a state or country where it is legal then there a few things that may help you make sure the experience is a good one. If you are taking cannabis for medical reasons these tips also apply. The below tips come from both personal experience and some professional advice we have gathered.
Take some time to read about marijuana. This way you can know what effects to expect, whether you are going to use it as a recreational or therapeutic substance. Depending on the variety, one can expect from strong psychoactive effects to more subtle relaxing effects. Know what strain you are selecting and what the effects of that strain are. There are many good review sites
you can turn to for this. And be sure to purchase from a licensed dispensary.
Just relax. The worst thing that can be done when smoking for the first time when perceiving the effects it produces is frightening, which can cause a sensation of unnecessary paranoia. Smoking marijuana is no reason to get nervous, smoke relaxed and you will see how everything flows better and before you know it, you are immersed in a new world of pleasant sensations.
Choose a good movie. A good comedic movie
is one of the best ways to enjoy the first time you smoke marijuana. This first time is always going to be remembered and nothing better than a few laughs to remember her in a pleasant way and face the next ones in good spirits. There is nothing worse than smoking and doing nothing while sitting on the couch while the effects of the grass disappear.
Find the best smoking device. In terms of finding a device to smoke from there are many choices. A glass bong
can make the first experience more pleasant because it offers cool, refreshing smoke that is filtered through water. On the other hand a vaporizer, which heats the substance at lower temps than smoking, may be easier for a first time user. Whatever method you choose be sure to gauge your intake. Take it slowly and be sure not to smoke too much. And be sure to purchase the device from a trusted online headshop
that offers warranties on its products.
Listen to music. Finding some great tunes
another activity that can help make smoking for the first time a great experience. Apart from distracting you and moving your mind away from other types of thoughts, all agree that under the effects of marijuana music sounds better and is understood in deeper ways in addition to making the moment more social and communal.
Smoke slowly It is never good to rush, and consuming cannabis for the first time is no exception to this rule. Almost immediately after the first puff the effects of the marijuana make their presence, so be calm and deliberate. Do not take it too fast There is no need to take huge puffs. Avoid overdoing it.
Have food nearby It is no secret that marijuana stimulates the appetite, and it is common after a few puffs for the stomach to want food. Always have snacks
and munchies on hand, be it potato chips, fruit, nuts or pizza. It’s also very important to hydrate, so make sure to drink water.
Share the experience with others Smoking cannabis is a social thing and doing it for the first time you will be better off if you are in the company of others who have done it before. They can help you figure out how to smoke and how much to smoke. More importantly, the social aspect will keep you out of your own head, and you share in the joy that comes from communal laughter, joking and a new experience.
Use eye drops. Consuming cannabis can sometimes make the eyes red and glassy. This is due to THC, which lowers blood pressure and causes blood vessels in the eyes to dilate. Using a few drops of Visine
or something like this in the eyes will make them feel better and will all you to main your discretion.
Act normally Marijuana will produce physical and cerebral effects, and it will be inevitable that your abilities will be altered. Try or try to act normally when you do not want anyone to find out what you have been doing. Incoherent conversations or jokes will only make you funny or that is in a state similar to yours.
