How to get high AF
I like being high. I’m a higher functioning being I suppose. Do you like being high? Getting high has always been stuff stoners like. It’s one of the reasons we are the way we are, and after trying as many other drugs as we could get our hands on, one of these substances kept calling us back. One hails king, or queen, as the case may be. Cannabis, marijuana, ganja, chronic, weed, or whatever you call it, is the most mellow, easy on your body substance you can get.
Weed hangovers? Bring them on. I look forward to it. I would much rather wake up groggy and with a head start to getting stoned and having a good day than the alternative. Once humans figured out how to get high, it was only a matter of time before they figured out how to get really high. I’m here to help you figure out how to get super high. I’m talking to the moon Alice!
Why would we want to get high?
Are you trying to figure out how to get high naturally? We love life in the fast lane with an easy high. It’s just an easy high right? Getting high on weed is the new, old, American pastime. More than that, it’s the species pastime. Because life is one trial after another, and our brains yearn for change. A perspective shift, perhaps some chaos to break up the monotony of this sarcastically sad society we’ve all agreed on living in.
Or maybe it’s just that we have an endocannabinoid system and that system is responsible for all sorts of other systems working at optimal levels. Sometimes maybe we’re having a bad day and perhaps the bong rips or dabs aren’t quite cutting it. Perhaps it’s just time to take a tolerance break and reset the endocannabinoid system.
Perhaps, but perhaps we just need a little boost, or some sort of modulator or amplifier for the weed we’re smoking. More importantly, the stuff in the weed that’s actually getting us high. How do we get that stuff to get us even more high? Did you ever want to know how to intensify your high? Ever try searching for legal ways to get high or how to make your high last longer? Let’s take a look.
What’s the best way to smoke weed?
That all depends, are we talking best way to smoke weed, or are we talking about the most efficient way to smoke weed? Sometimes these can be two different things. Just like the age old discussion about what the best camera is, the best way to smoke weed is the way that’s available to you at the time. There’s definitely something to be said about having the right tools for the job, but with a job like getting high, there’s more than one way to skin a cat.
I think I might have a couple more cliche sayings to use for my quota, but for now, waste not, want not. Without messing with terpene trial and error, the best way I know how to get the most out of weed, is to load bite size pieces into a one hitter, or a small pipe of sorts. This will even work with a bong. But the idea is to take a decent hit, and then hold it in for about 8 to 10 seconds. The longer you hold in your hit, the more of the good shit is going to get where it needs to go, to do the things it needs to do. Of course we reach a point where we’re just wasting time, and in all the research I’ve done, it seems like 8 to 10 seconds is the sweet spot.
Better marijuana. Better marijuana high.
Also remember that when chasing the marijuana high with stoned eyes on the prize, that the quality of the bud has a lot to do with how high you’ll get. As does your high tolerance. That means if the weed you’re smoking has some bad shit in it, and you’re holding it in for maximum absorption, you are also getting all that bad shit up in your guts.
Of course this will depend on what sort of bad shit we’re talking about, whether it’s pesticides or heavy metals or just a lot of fats and waxes and bud hardening nutrients, the longer you hold that weed hit or dab in, the more chance you have of contaminating your temple with poop. Nobody wants poop in their temple.
What’s the healthiest way to smoke weed?
Lots of people are all about health these days. There’s a ton of different ways to smoke weed. Who would have thought a bunch of pot smoking hippies would all of the sudden give a shit about what’s going into their body? I’m glad, I just never would have predicted that. It goes to show you how misleading stereotypes can be, especially when they are propagated to serve a corrupt government. That being said, if you want to know about the healthiest way to smoke weed, you must first understand what’s in the weed, and what you don’t want passing through into your body.
Out of all the ways people are getting high these days, and all the different ways to smoke weed, there’s a few methods that stand out more than others. A lot of people swear by activated charcoal or carbon along with water filtration system. Carbon, in the form of activated charcoal, is pretty damn good at removing unwanted tastes and smells. I’m fairly familiar with it’s use in water treatment, and oil refinement. In water for cleaning up taste and smell. In oil refinement it also cleans up taste and smell, and can also help to lighten up your material.
Sometimes people don’t always do the best job at extracting, or perhaps they don’t use the right hydrocarbons. Whatever the reason or excuse, if the material you’re smoking has a funky, not so fresh smell to it, a little inline activated charcoal filter and some water filtration will do wonders. This can also be a bit of a pain depending on the gear you have, so it might just be worth finding some better shit to smoke.
Getting high healthily
We should also state that using the word healthy in regards to smoking is kind of silly. Obviously the act of inhaling smoke, regardless of how healthy the molecules and compounds in the smoke may be, is never a “healthy” thing to do. If you want some quick easy rationalization for continuing to do so, that’s sort of my specialty. The air we breath and everything else we’re exposed to on the day to day isn’t clean. We have systems in place inside our bodies to deal with this, to a certain extent. But if I can get all the benefits of cannabis, and all I have to do is smoke some weed, well that seems worth it to me.
If you really want to be a weird health nut about it, then perhaps vaporization or eating edibles might be more your bag. But again, do you know exactly what was used to make that vape cart? Do you know how clean the extract that was used to make those edibles was? Of course not. So my advice to you on the whole thing is this. Don’t fucking worry about it, because in the end, it doesn’t really matter. That’s the whole key to living a stress free existence. Focus on the now, enjoy the journey, and don’t worry about shit, because who cares? I know, this cold world has left me a jaded nihilist.
For those of you looking for a more keep it simple stupid approach, the easiest way to smoke weed is probably out of a glass pipe, or perhaps a joint. Both ways to smoke weed involve tools, although if you know how to roll a joint, carrying around papers and possibly a grinder might be a bit less bulky than packing around a pipe. But it all depends. These days there’s a million different form factors for a handful of ways to get high. Find the one that works best for you and your situation. I’m marijuana smoking because I love smoking marijuana.
How to get higher!
Want to get even higher? First you need to figure out which terpenes are best suited to working with your endocannabinoid system. Want to know how to get higher than that? Once you have that information, you can start looking around at what oils and extracts are out there that contain that terpene profile, or one that’s similar. The only surefire way to know what works for any one individual, is to keep trying them. Experiment with them, mix them together, and keep going until you find something that suits you.
You can also eat fully decarboxylated THC products like distillate. The edible high is much different and for a lot of us, a lot more intense. I’m not a huge fan of eating the weed stuff, but that’s just my endocannabinoid system talking. Some of us were made to dab all day, and some of us were meant to eat weed brownies all day. Either way, start small and work your way up, the edible high, due to the liver metabolizing THC into 11-hydroxy-thc, is the culprit. It’s a bit more potent dose to dose, and it’s a different molecule, which brings with it a different set of properties and feelings.
Some people for example, like to supplement their diets with foods high in myrcene. This is because the terpene myrcene will potentiate or amplify the effects of the cannabinoids, more specifically, the good old Delta 9. There’s a couple ways to do this, but for the most part, people are getting their myrcene and other terpenes from the internet, or from Amazon. We’re even starting to see a line of terpene supplements directed at the health conscious stoner. Infused with terpenes that all create this synergistic Entourage effect you may or may not have heard about. The skeptic in me says it’s all bullshit, but the real world experience I’ve had with cannabis and terpenes says otherwise. Either way, getting high is stuff stoners like, and getting really, really, really high, is even moreso.
Why do bongs get you higher?
Looking how to get higher when smoking? Set that pipe down and pick up a bong. Simply put, bongs get you higher because you are forcing more cannabinoid and terpene saturated smoke into your body. Much more than a pipe or a joint. Do you really want to get high? Take a fat bong rip and try to hold that shit in for about 8 seconds. As you exhale you should start feeling it. This will of course depend on your weed high tolerance. This will take you through all the stages of being high, in the course of a couple hours. Just make sure you have a comfy place to sit. Otherwise you might be looking for an article to tell you how to get less high. Don’t be that person.
