There are different levels of high from cannabis, and what to do when high on weed will differ depending on how high you actually are.
If you are just a little high, you can do a lot of fun and creative things. But if you’re too high, all you will want to do is sleep. If you use way too much cannabis, it can make you feel very unwell.
In this guide, we take you through fun things to do when you’re high on weed, how to enhance your high, and what to do if you have used too much cannabis, and need to come down a little.
Cannabis can inspire you, push you to learn new things, pursue new interests, and take up new hobbies. Or it can send you to bed early, make you lazy, and unproductive. It is all down to the individual, and how you choose to use it.
Firstly, relax. You want the high to settle in. Though if you smoke cannabis the high will begin straight away, it can take 5-10 minutes to really settle in, and have its full effects. If you are ingesting cannabis via edibles, it can take an hour before the high begins to kick.
The key at first, is to not get too high. Once you are relaxed, you will think of things you would like to, and whatever it is, you should do it. It doesn’t matter what your hobbies and interests are, the best time to do them is when you’re high.
From playing video games, board games, writing, watching movies, painting, home improvements, making models or jigsaw puzzles. What do you like to do?
Some people like to go to the gym after using cannabis, some like to go running, and some like to stay home and watch TV in bed.
What to do when high on weed will depend on what you want to do. But when you’re just a little high, it is a great time to push yourself into learning a new hobby! Your mind is relaxed, you are chilled, and it makes it so much more enjoyable when learning something new.
Maybe you have always wanted to play a musical instrument. Maybe you want to start your own cannabis grow, or write a book. Get just a little bit high on weed, and give it a shot! Don’t get too high, of course. You may just want to watch TV then, which is cool too. You can get as high as you like if you just want to relax.
Enhancing your high on weed can be done in many ways. Of course, the easiest is to use more cannabis. But this is not possible for some, as cannabis is expensive and they simply can’t afford to use as much as they like. If you grow your own cannabis, it isn’t so much of a problem.
Eating certain foods can prolong, and increase your high. Also eating dark chocolate can slow the breakdown of a chemical called anandamide in the brain, and this will prolong your high.
However, the most popular food to eat to increase your cannabis high is mangoes. Mangoes contain a terpene called myrcene, which is also found in the cannabis plant. Eating Mangoes when high on weed will make your high feel stronger and last longer.
You can also drink green tea as it contains a chemical called Catechins. Catechins combine with the CB1 receptors in the brain, much like THC does. This is a great method for people who have a very high tolerance to cannabis, and can be a healthy replacement for coffee and sugary drinks too.
For seasoned cannabis users, who have very high tolerance levels, the best way to enhance your high, is to stop smoking for a while. Even just a few days of not using cannabis can bring your tolerance levels back down. After a few weeks, it will feel like it’s the first time you have ever smoked a joint.
If you do take a tolerance break, or eat some mangoes before you get high, then you should be careful not to overdo it. Getting too high can be very uncomfortable, and though you will be fine when the weed wears off, it’s still not a great experience. Take things slow and find the right levels and you will enjoy the high much more!
If you get too high, the first thing you should do is stop ingesting cannabis. If you need to sleep, do it! Though it is easier said than done, don’t panic, you will be fine! The THC will be broken down quickly in your body, and you will be feeling much better very soon.
You may find you start to sweat and feel very hot, and then cold. You may vomit, and your skin may become clammy and pale. But all this will not last long and should be over within half an hour! The important thing is not to panic.
Drinking some orange juice (not mango juice) can really help as it restores your blood sugar levels quickly. Water or any sugary drink will also help you recover quickly. If you can, get some fresh air, but try not to go for a walk in the streets when you are very high. It’s better to sit in the garden or near an open window if you can.
This has happened to most cannabis users, and we all need to find our limits somewhere. Once you know the limit, you will know not to go over it again. But you may want to get close sometimes so you can be really high!
Different types of cannabis will give you different highs. It is said Indica dominant cannabis plants will give you a sleepier, heavy stone, whilst Sativa dominant cannabis plants will be more euphoric and inspiring.
So depending on what cannabis you have been using, you might want to just stay and chill at home, or you may want to go out and do something! Of course, you always need to air on the side of caution. You should NEVER do anything dangerous, or operate heavy machinery when you’re high.
Music is one thing that is always better when you’re high. Get really high, put some good headphones on, lay back and relax. Most old school cannabis users would recommend the Dark Side of the Moon album from Pink Floyd, some music from The Doors, or anything else you enjoy listening to. You make your own experience, and enjoy it your way.
There is plenty you can do when you’re high on weed, some say that being high makes most experiences much better.
Do what you love doing, learn something you’ve always wanted to learn, and don’t be afraid to try new things. Being high on weed can relax your mind and make even the toughest of tasks enjoyable.
Just get high and do it.
