Anyone who has ever used marijuana before has probably wondered how to prolong the experience. They may have also wondered how to make that same experience even stronger. Well, this article will address the issue by providing some great tips to make your marijuana experience an even better one. If you never thought about ways to get even higher, this article just might change your mind.
How to Get Higher Smoking Weed
We all know that cannabis can deliver a very potent psychoactive high. We also know that, after a while, the effects start to decrease, and it may not feel so powerful. Plus, over time, this gets worse. It’s easy to develop a bit of tolerance if you stick to the same routine, but when you do this with marijuana, you start to reduce your high.
No one wants a mediocre experience. That’s why marijuana lovers of all levels must learn ways to ‘keep it fresh.’ If you’ve been using marijuana for a while, try some new strains and methods of consumption. If you are a newbie, it’s always a good idea to learn new tricks that make the experience even better.
The better you inhale, the higher you will get. Most people are not getting the most out of their marijuana because they are not inhaling as deep as possible - limiting their experience.
If you want to go higher, you must first learn to breathe deeply. It also helps to use the best devices. For maximum results, try a bong or vape to inhale THC-rich smoke into your lungs. The goal is breathing in the THC, letting it coat from within, then slowly exhaling.
Try high THC cannabis strains
So you start with sativa, indica, and hybrids, and then what? Remember, marijuana strains have unique qualities, but they all fit into one of three groups. If you’re looking for the strongest effects, start by picking the right type of strain, then go for a higher THC.
Sativa strains provide energy, and for some people, cause paranoia or full-on psychedelic experience. Unlike Indica, it won’t leave you stoned, and couch locked. Sativas are recommended for daytime use.
Indica strains provide a more sedative, relaxing high, making it great for calming anxiety and pain. Indicas can not only make you unproductive and sleepy, but they can also make you very hungry. These strains are best for nighttime use with plenty of food on hand.
Hybrids, on the other hand, are a blend of both Indicas and Sativas. Many hybrids have surprisingly unique characteristics, making exploring your choices a good idea.
Even if you’ve found a strain that you love, you will eventually reach a point where you don’t get as high as before. Frequently trying a different strain prevents this from happening. If you don’t have anything new, try blending different strains to yield new results. Combining different types of weed or even different strains will lead to something new, and likely stimulate a new response from your body.
Drink coffee while smoking weed
Coffee and weed are a perfect pair for creating a mind-blowing high! Science is even backing this up.
According to a study posted by Science Daily, researchers gave squirrel monkeys enough THC to get them high by pulling a lever. They then combined the THC with increasing amounts of a caffeine called MSX-3. As researchers increased the dose of MSX-3, the monkey pulled the lever less than they were before. The experiment suggested that adding caffeine made the monkeys need less THC to get the same high.
This is exciting news for marijuana lovers that are looking to go higher!
How does it work? Caffeine blocks the receptors in your brain that usually receive adenosine, a compound that causes your brain to relax and get sleepy. Cannabis stops the break-in neural transmission, which causes the mind to relax. The two can now work together to let the brain relax, expanding its imagination and thoughts.
Coffee basically mimics the actions of THC, and with higher doses of caffeine, it makes us feel good due to its ability to access every reward system in your brain.
Change your approach
Sometimes all it takes is a new gadget. You’d be surprised how many people miss this simple hack. Most marijuana smokers generally have a go-to method for consuming their marijuana. While this is understandable, it is always a good idea to try something different. Use a different device or get creative by choosing another way to smoke your weed.
If you keep using the same method over and over again, your body will naturally become resistant to it. Therefore, you need to change your routine. If you generally use a bong, try a pipe or roll a joint.
Not sure of all your options? Here are a few methods to try:
- Gravity bongs: these help you inhale massive amounts of weed with minimal effort.
- Vaporizers: these devices gently warm marijuana to the best temperature, so the psychoactive properties are not destroyed.
- Edibles: Eating marijuana is nothing like smoking. Edibles create a unique type of body high that can last as long as 8 hours.
- Bongs: Water-cooled weed smoke provides a smooth way to take in plenty of cannabinoids.
- Pipes: Simple and straight to the point, pipes deliver smoke straight to the lungs.
Grind your marijuana
The way you prepare your marijuana can make a considerable difference in the final results. No matter how you consume marijuana flowers, making sure it is properly ground up can help extend your pleasure. When your weed is finely ground, rather than in large danky nuggets, it is much easier to get a nice even roast when you light it. You’ll notice a clean, level smoke and larger, improved hits (if using a bong). The difference is sure to be felt.
Kief and dabs
Dabs are a condensed form of THC set in oil. They provide an intense, full-bodied experience that is significantly stronger than smoking. Because of their high levels of THC, it is easy to get really high using dabs. Dabs can be enjoyed on their own or added to dried flower.
Kief refers to very fine THC trichomes that disconnect from the marijuana when it is being ground up. You can purchase kief, but it’s also easy to collect some on your own. A kief box or kief catcher is attached to many herb grinders and serves as a fun way to collect this potent dust. Check the bottom of your grinder for this concentrated THC powder. Go higher by simply sprinkling some on your bowl or in the next joint you roll.
According to research, mangoes have myrcene terpenes, which can enhance your high and potentially cause it to last longer. Myrcene is found in many different types of fruit, but you also find it in other favorite plants such as hops and marijuana.
Since they both feature the cannabinoid myrcene, increase your overall consumption by eating mangoes before enjoying marijuana. The myrcene found in mangoes merges with the marijuana myrcene and assists THC in moving faster to your brain. Talk about a tasty way to get higher…
If you have access to some of these herbs, you are definitely in luck. These herbs intensify the effects of cannabis, making it easy to reach new heights.
A popular herb to try with cannabis is Kratom, which is native to Southeast Asia. This herb is already used worldwide for both recreational and medicinal purposes, just like marijuana. Kratom promotes anxiety relief, better sleep, euphoria, and pain relief. It should be no surprise that many choose to combine it with weed.
Kratom isn’t the only herb that blends well with weed. Here are more smokeable herbs that blend well with cannabis for an increased high.
- Wild Dagga
- Blue Lotus
- Passion Flower
Alcohol is another debatable method of boosting a high. It only takes a small amount of alcohol while smoking marijuana to intensify your effects. But keep in mind this isn’t going to work well for everyone and may even create a disagreeable experience for some smokers.
The biggest struggle most people have when meditating is quieting the mind and relaxing the body enough to effectively meditate. Well, this is where weed comes in.
If you’ve learned anything from this article, it should be that two herbs with similar effects can increase your overall results. Meditation may not be an herb, but it definitely has a similar impact on the body. Marijuana can be relaxing to the mind, body, and soul, and so can meditation. Combining the two only intensifies the effect.
This connection is well known. Many religious sects include cannabis in their meditation practices. This is because the two together create increased awareness. Marijuana provides grounding while also relaxing the mind, helping meditators easily reach a state of stillness.
The combination of meditation and marijuana can lead to expanded consciousness, a life-changing experience, and a much wanted extended high.
Smoke after you workout
Research has shown that many smokers say they feel an enhanced high if they smoke after a good, long workout. So, it should be no surprise that many people reach their highest high at this time. On top of that, smoking weed after an exercise routine can help relax overworked muscles, speeding recovery times.
A study conducted in 2013 in Drug and Alcohol Dependence revealed that a cardio workout increases blood-THC levels by 15%. Exercising can also help you have a better high since THC is stored in body fat. While that can sound like a good thing, THC in fat takes a long time to release. You’re much better off enjoying a proper diet and exercise routine that reduces your overall body fat, as this can help with the quality of your high.
There’s also that athletes’ high to consider. Exercise has been proven to have a similar effect on your brain as marijuana. A good cardio session can heighten your mood and assist in the release of THC from stored body fat. So, if you’ve got some THC stored in your fat, a good workout is a great way to get them engaged. Get it in, then puff a little. You’ll get the benefits of deep full-body relaxation and a good, strong high after an intense gym session.
Change your surroundings
A little change of scenery can really increase your high. For smokers who usually enjoy your high inside the home, try something new by taking the experience outdoors. Being in nature can positively affect and prolong your high. It can even become a spiritually empowering experience.
You just never know; you may tap into a whole new world or part of yourself.
Take a break
It may be time to stop smoking for a little while or try doing it less often. Now, this may not be your favorite option, but it really does make a difference. By smoking less often or taking a small break, your next hit is guaranteed to be a really good one.
Using cannabis daily causes your body to create tolerance. If you want to get higher when using weed, a tolerance break is one of the easiest ways to accomplish this.
You don’t have to go for an extremely long time without using marijuana. Instead, try taking a break for a few days or maybe a couple of weeks. You can go without cannabis as long as a month or more if you want. Research shows that it takes about a month for cannabinoids to fully leave your body. The longer you go without it, the stronger your next high will be.
Getting more from your marijuana high can be very easy to do, and there are several ways to make your high either more intense, beneficial, or perhaps just more interesting. Experiment with different techniques to see what works best for you. There is no right or wrong way to do this.
