Marijuana is finally getting the recognition it deserves as a viable and natural plant that helps millions of people with problems like anxiety, stress, and more. With so many people curious about exploring Marijuana, we wanted to make a simple yet informative guide for using Marijuana for beginners.
We have put together a list of the top 10 tips to help you with your first time using Marijuana. These tips are the essential tips for using cannabis for beginners so let’s get started!
1. Be Prepared
You have likely seriously considered the choice you are making to smoke Marijuana for the first time. Put the same kind of thought into your first experience. Be prepared for the idea that you may not get high the first time.
At the same time, have a plan for how to handle things if you were to have a bad high or get too high. Consider the particular people and place you want for your first time. It is very important to both be and feel safe so you can enjoy your high.
2.Make Sure to Inhale
Many first-time Marijuana users do not feel the effects of the pot their first time. This is generally because they don’t inhale properly. Be prepared to cough, it is just something that happens your first time, just remember to take a small slow draw and inhale!
Don’t be discouraged if you don’t feel anything at first. If you have never smoked anything, a cigarette for example, then you are going to have to teach and train yourself how to inhale and do it the right way. Smoking with a seasoned marijuana user might help you learn how to inhale properly.
3. Stay Hydrated
You might have heard the phrase “Cottonmouth” being thrown around in the past, and trust us, it’s a real thing! When you use Marijuana, especially via smoking, your mouth can become incredibly dry. Keeping water or other beverages handy while you use Marijuana is a pro-tip that shouldn’t be overlooked.
4. Start Small
If it is your first time using Marijuana stay away from the advanced smoking apparatuses like oil rigs, dab pens, massive bongs, etc. These tools are for seasoned Marijuana smokers and should not be used for your first time smoking as you could get too high and end up not enjoying yourself.
Instead, start small with a small bowl or a thinly rolled joint for your first time smoking. These options will allow you to control the volume you smoke easier and allow you to take your time.
5. Circle of Friends
Whether you are new to smoking, or you have been smoking for years, it is important to be mindful of who you smoke around. The wrong group of people can cause you to have a bad high.
Additionally, you are in a vulnerable state, and people you don’t know or trust could take advantage of you. Instead, smoke only with people you know and people whose company you enjoy!
6. Know Your Limits
Never feel pressured to smoke more that you feel comfortable with. While it is virtually impossible to overdose on Marijuana, smoking too much can make you feel dizzy or sick.
Find your footing the first time, you are not trying to win an award for smoking the most in one session! Take your time and enjoy the experience slowly.
7. Learn Proper Smoking Etiquette
Every seasoned smoker has been in a circle where one person monopolizes the Marijuana, or even worse, gets started talking and waves around the joint or bowl while they are talking, just letting the marijuana burn to ash. Be polite and remember to puff and pass. Pay attention to the etiquette of others in the group and follow suit.
8. Smoke Marijuana on it’s Own
It is common for weed to be passed around at concerts or in bar parking lots when everyone has already been drinking. There is nothing wrong with that, but if it’s your first time, you want to smoke weed on it’s own. This will allow you to judge how the marijuana makes you feel and act. You will have plenty of chances to experiment in the future. You want your first smoke session to be pure so you can analyze how you feel about it.
9. Pick the Right Environment
You definitely want to make sure you will feel safe and you don’t want to worry about getting caught by anyone you would rather not know that you are trying marijuana. You should also choose the time wisely so that you can clear your schedule and not have to worry about any responsibilities while you enjoy your high. You do not want to be called into work or try to handle important business right after you have smoked marijuana. It is important to be able to relax if you want to really enjoy the effects of marijuana.
10. Be Prepared for the Munchies
Yes, the munchies are a real thing. You might want to consider grabbing your favorite fast food or stopping by the local grocery on the way to your smoke session to grab some goodies before you start to smoke. Pick a cool easy new recipe to try and embrace your creativity. Have all of the ingredients on hand before you light up so the cooking will be fun and simple, plus you won’t need to go out and drive around anywhere.
