Byking_adm on August 2, 2021 Enjoying a weed smoking session after a tough day at work is a great way to unwind and relax. If you’re brand new to smoking cannabis, it’s helpful to know what to expect before you use it. This will give you a better idea of what each stage might feel like, and it might ease your nerves a bit as you go with the stages of being high. Many things become just a little bit better after smoking weed. With weed, you don’t get the unpleasant hangover the day after a heavy night of drinking. You can get home after work, smoke a few bowls of your favorite strain, watch a movie, go to bed, and then get up the next day without a ripping headache. That is probably tempting you to smoke a bowl right now, isn’t it? Another thing you won’t have to deal with is the extra empty calories that you get from alcohol. Weed increases your metabolism, and that will provide you a little natural kickstart to burning calories. Cannabis is an interesting drug that can lead you on a path with many twists and turns. You get home after an exhausting day at work, smoke a bowl, and all of a sudden are experiencing a bunch of psychoactive effects and feelings of relaxation that make you feel like you’re in a completely different world. Weed also has your mindset feeling a little more creative. After smoking weed, you’ll experience a creative mindset that will have your mind-expanding further than you ever thought was possible. If you’ve never been high before, reading this guide is a good way to get a better understanding of what you’ll experience after consuming weed. What Are The Stages Of Being High? Each and every person will report a different experience after consuming cannabis, and that’s what makes it such a personal thing. You can be smoking weed with a few of your friends and no one will report experiencing the same thing. What’s Going On? You just got home from work, filled the bowl of your pipe with your favorite strain of cannabis, and took a long rip. Your eyes are starting to flare up and your lungs are starting to burn. You start coughing soon after and you know you’re going to be feeling a lot different pretty soon. As the THC is starting to interact with your CB1 and CB2 receptors, you’ll gradually feel like you’re beginning to enter a dream of sorts. The first few moments after lighting up a bowl of weed are the most fun for a lot of people. Euphoria After the ‘what’s going on’ stage, you might start to experience a body high that will have you experiencing feelings of euphoria. You might turn to your friend next to you and tell them that you’re feeling very high. You both might burst out into laughter that seems to extend a lot longer in duration than it really should be. After that, you might find yourself wanting to seep back into a couch and do nothing at all. Your body might feel ten times heavier than it did before. Your stressful day at work won’t matter and you’ll start to consider popping on some music or maybe a movie. Deep Thought Once you’ve accepted the feelings of euphoria that seem to never end, your brain might start to feel like it’s going on a wild ride of contemplative thought. You might start to consider things you’ve never even thought of before, like why dogs are way better than cats. There is a good chance that you might think about movies you’ve seen in the past and wonder why certain things happened in them. You might think about a new career path that draws you to the excitement and even has you considering quitting your current job to try something new and fresh. No matter what, the deep thoughts tend to engulf your mind to a degree that you can’t escape from. Paranoia Paranoia is one of the stages that might have you getting off the couch suddenly. Some might feel themselves diving too deeply into their thought patterns and just want to escape them and try something else. Snacks are one of these things that can get you out of the previous stage rather quickly. From popcorn to chips, to the many different candies out there, you’ll feel a seething hunger that doesn’t ever seem to get satisfied no matter what you eat. In the paranoia stage, you might find that everyone around you is an undercover cop. This is why it’s suggested to consume weed in environments that you’re comfortable and familiar with. No one wants to be smoking weed before they go into a packed shopping mall and later experience paranoia. Do you see that 95-year old in front of your street? That’s the DEA wanting to break into your home. What about that grade 5 kid with a Pokemon backpack that is just walking home from school? No matter who you see around you, the paranoia stage will persist for a bit longer. You might want to stay away from music that has sirens on in the background. This can erupt an entirely new sense of paranoia that will have you thinking that cops are outside your door trying to drag you to prison. After some more thought, you’ll realize that it wasn’t even cops in the first place and that it was just background music. Another thing that many people do in the paranoia stage is head down to a local convenience store to purchase snacks and candies to satisfy their munchies. You’ll instantly think that the cashier knows that you’re high out of your mind. Along your walk to the store, you’ll see three other students walking home from school all the while thinking a massive conspiracy is going on. Munchies This stage almost goes without saying, but it’s all part of smoking weed. Your mouth turns into a garbage bin that has no end. People cram their faces with food from their fridges, cupboards, and convenience stores. Some even like to start cooking up things to satisfy their cravings. Repeat The Process After you’ve gone through each stage of being high, you might start feeling less high as time goes on. You’ve experienced the euphoria, the paranoia, and the munchies, and are wondering what’s next. At this point, some people are starting to experience feelings of drowsiness and lethargy and will call it a night. Others don’t know when to stop and like to smoke a couple of more bowls so they can repeat all of the previous steps again. There is no wrong way to go about it and when it comes to weed, to each their own. Fading If you’ve decided to go with the option of smoking more weed to repeat all of the stages over again, you’ll probably end up feeling pretty tired. At this point, the only thing you’ll want to do is pass out in your bed and have a blissful sleep.
