Beginner’s Guide to Smoking Pot
Legalization is coming!!! I’m sure that cannabis users will be very excited to celebrate and there would be newbies who would be excited to try. Let’s cheer these folks up by giving them beginner’s tips:
1. Recognize the need.
First of all, you have to figure out why you need to smoke cannabis. Is it because I want to relax and sleep? Do I need to stay focused and energetic? Do I need to be on a calm mood throughout the day and just think of nothing? Am I in a group and just need to get a “need to belong” feeling? These questions will lead you to tip #2.
2. Educate yourself.
Simple awareness of what cannabis does to our system and the SATIVA, INDICA, HYBRID, EDIBLES and CONCENTRATES terms can help you choose what will suite your need. The effects of cannabis varies from one person to another and from one strain to another. I recommend trying each type one at a time and see how each one affects you. It is always best to know what to expect and get educated rather than finding yourself calling 9-1-1 because you are currently experiencing panic or anxiety attack because you just took a whole bar of 210mg THC edible chocolate bar! Also, the world of cannabis is so interesting that learning stuff about it is really fascinating.
3. Start low and take it easy.
Start taking 1-2 tokes at a time and then wait for 15 minutes. Cannabis is not a cigarette where the effects are felt right away. Save yourself the hassle of “greening out” especially when you are smoking it with friends. Just take it nice and slow. If you are eating edibles, make sure to take small portions and wait for 30-45 minutes for the THC to metabolize.
4. Just go with the flow.
If the munchies hit, indulge and eat. If you are focused and getting creative, just let the ideas flow and build something. If you are out with friends, listen and tell stories. If you are at home chilling, sit back and relax. If you are feeling sleepy, No matter what state are you in, enjoy doing it. Get in tuned with the effect and the activity or the deed! There is nothing more enjoyable than getting high and loving every single moment of it.
5. Enjoy responsibly.
Remember that being a responsible cannabis user requires maturity. This is the reason why we require our customers to be of 21 years old and above. If you are an adult with kids in your house, make sure to keep and store everything on a place out of children’s reach. DO NOT SMOKE AND DRIVE. Show respect to non-cannabis users. If we are brave enough to initiate legalization then we must also be responsible enough to prove that we deserve access to it.
