If you want to join the 12% of Americans who smoke marijuana regularly, congratulations! You won’t regret it.
Still, you likely have a lot of questions about smoking weed for beginners. That’s what we’re going to talk about here today! Read on to learn some things you need to know before experiencing pot for the first time.
You’re Making an Awesome Choice
It’s natural to have some doubts about smoking weed for the first time, but fear not! You can rest easy knowing that you’re making the right decision.
Weed has very few negative side effects and doesn’t spur long-term health issues like other drugs, including alcohol and tobacco, do. On the flip side, it has a ton of health benefits including chronic pain relief, the lowering of anxiety, releasing muscle tension, and mending bones and healing injuries more quickly.
There Are Multiple Ways to Smoke
You also should know that there are multiple ways that you can smoke weed. Some of the most popular include:
- Bowls that you insert weed into, light up with a lighter, and smoke through a small hole at the end
- Joints (also known as blunts), which are basically weed cigarettes rolled in paper
- Vape pens, which are easy to use and portable
You Can Get Easy-to-Smoke Options
Okay, so you’re probably wondering: which of these is the easiest way to smoke weed?
The answer depends on what form you buy your pot in. Rolling a blunt isn’t a fun process for beginners who just want to get started and smoke ASAP. However, you can buy pre-rolled blunts from most dispensaries to try. If you decide that joints are your preferred method of ingestion, that’s when you’ll want to learn to roll them.
A vapor shop is one of the most popular options for easy weed. You can get a vape pen and put liquid pot inside it to vape. This is a great way to get you high anywhere and anytime. It also is the best option for people with sensitive respiratory systems or asthma who will cough a lot when they inhale smoke.
Weed Affects Everyone Differently
It’s also important to know that weed has a different effect on everyone who uses it. Some people get really slaphappy and giggly while others just fall asleep. Both of these reactions to weed are common.
Many people who smoke also have ‘stages.’ After a couple of hits, their muscles loosen. After a couple more, they begin to have a good time and feel really happy. A couple more hits and you might fall asleep.
Also, make sure that you don’t smoke too much your first time. Overdoing it can lead to a bad high, which is never fun. You also might become a bit paranoid at some stage in the process- this is totally normal. Just remember that nothing bad is going to happen and you’ll be fine. The paranoia usually passes quickly and you’ll get back to feeling good.
It’s More Fun With Friends
Finally, smoking pot is an activity best enjoyed with friends. It loosens everyone up, makes you more social, and gives you an excuse to have a good time together. Play some Cards Against Humanity or watch a trippy movie together. Weed enhances social experiences, so give it a try!
