There is a lot to be said for the amount of cannabis-based information we can access online these days. At the touch of a button you can find out the best strains to get mega-high, the top methods of consuming weed, which recipes will taste the best with cannabis… The list goes on and on!
However, there is much less information out there as to what to do once you have gotten high! It may not seem obvious to some, but we bet seasoned smokers will tell you that they’ve been caught short of fun things to do once the high arrived. This often leads to hours and hours spent wasting away in front of a terrible television show (or ads!), which is a bit of a waste when you think about it!
To help combat the issue, we have put together our top five things that you would be crazy not to try while high! So give this a read and get prepared for the best high experience of your life!
#1 Play a Video Game
There is a lot to be said for the simple things in life, especially when you’ve had a smoke! Number one on our list has to go to the old school video game, so dust off that neglected console and break out the weed!
Remember the old classics? As we get older, it becomes much harder to take time out to play some games, but the truth is you’ve just not realized that the perfect time to play is when you’re high!
Depending on the strain you’re indulging in, you will either become a super zoned in master of your craft or you will be stuck on the same level for hours! Either way the colors, music, sound effects and overall experience of playing a video game increases 10-fold when you do it high!
#2 Watch a Funny Movie
The great thing about movies is that there is a genre for almost every scenario, and comedy movies were practically built for the stoner to enjoy! While we all love a good thriller, there is nothing quite like sitting down to a silly comedy when you’re enjoying a joint (or two)!
The thrill seekers amongst you may opt for a horror movie experience, and who are we to judge? However, a word of caution to those who are prone to bouts of paranoia and anxiety – scary films may not be the wisest choice at this exact moment!
Picking up an animated comedy or an old classic stoner comedy like Pineapple Express will be much more light-hearted, and will likely see you in fits of laughter for hours so you can make the most of your high!
#3 Read a Book
If you’re a bit of a closet bookworm, then try getting out your favorite read while you enjoy a joint. It may sound a little dull, but a story can come to life when you’re high; from plot to character development, you are likely to absorb the words faster than ever before.
This is one of our favorite things to do while high, but it is important to note that this one isn’t applicable to every strain. You probably know where we are going here, but if you are high as a kite on a potent strain you are probably unlikely to take any words in (much more likely to re-read the same line 10 times)!
We advise a great mellow strain, a comfy set up with snacks and drinks at hand, and to enjoy the reading experience through brand new eyes!
#4 Have Sex
This is probably very unoriginal of us, but the fact of the matter is that sex is insane when you’re high! Imagine every single touch being magnified by 100, and then you’re close to imagining what high sex will be like!
It’s probably a well-known fact that relations are just more fun and can often feel way better when you’re both high – it’s a way to bond, get closer, and above all else, it is just a bit of excitement.
There are plenty of strains engineered towards a bit of intimacy with a loved one (or even on your own, who are we to judge!) so do a little research into the best strains for sex, and then when the time is right, enjoy!
One thing to be wary of is that some strains won’t lead to a night of passion so make sure you check the properties of the strain you’re getting. Additionally, it’s wise to go slow and steady with the consumption, as too much of most strains will leave you both fast asleep and fit for nothing!
#5 Listen to Music
Have you ever heard your favorite song come on while you’ve been high? Imagine listening to a back to back a playlist of your most treasured artists through a high-quality sound system, if you do this high – with your eyes closed – it’s almost like they’re in the room!
Seriously, listening to music is one of the most simple yet effective things you can do while stoned. Every note change, lyric, and instrument will come through crisper than you’ve ever heard it. It can get pretty intense!
Grab your headphones, your favorite playlist and a joint and unwind to the tunes you know and love, or even listen to something new and take yourself on a journey of musical discovery!
Everybody’s different, and there are probably plenty out there who prefer to sit and do nothing while they’re high. But for those who are on the market for trying something new, we hope our suggestions come in handy!
