Weeds have different effects on everyone. The key to finding the right product for you is to experiment gently. Start with a low dose (joint puff or edible 2 mg THC) and see how the different cannabinoids, strains, and consumption methods make you feel. Once you get used to your tolerance, the world of weeds is open for you to explore.
Effects of Cannabis High
High-quality cannabis has a very distinct effect on most people. It has an uplifting, non-psychoactive effect on many people, whereas, for others, it has a relaxing, tranquilizing effect. For most people, the correct dose is somewhere between the two ends of the spectrum – too little, and it won’t do anything; too much and unpleasant side effects will result.
One thing is certain, not everyone experiences cannabis in the same way. How you metabolize and process cannabis affects the “feel good” aspects and, therefore, how much “high” you get from using it. Different strains have been developed, affecting different people in different ways. For example, a strain that works well for relaxing might be more effective than another one that produces a profound sense of well-being. Cannabis is a very complex plant that contains at least 113 different chemicals, of which only about 20 have been identified. However, these identified compounds are mainly responsible for the psychotropic effects of the plant.
Factors Affecting Cannabis High
How to consume:
Some ways of consuming cannabis are more powerful and lasting than others. For example, food is more effective and can last longer than steaming or smoking, but experience varies from consumer to consumer.
Getting the right dose for your body is very important. It includes the proper ratio of CBD to THC so that cannabinoids can work together through aide effects.
CBD and THC are the two major cannabinoids of cannabis, but more than 100 are isolated in plants. CBN, CBG, and THCV are just a few of the other cannabinoids that can affect your experience. According to Rae, THCV may reduce the negative side effects of THC, especially anxiety.
Efficacy depends on how much a particular cannabinoid is present and how that cannabinoid is released (i.e., smoking, diet, etc.). Cannabis with a high THC content is more powerful and can produce very strong highs.
There is no human study of the role of terpenes in mood consumers, but there is evidence of some of the terpenes’ anti-anxiety effects commonly found in cannabis. Pinene, another terpene commonly found in cannabis, is a promising treatment for schizophrenia.
Consumers can choose from a myriad of cannabis strains, some of which are known for their specific effects. Known for its intoxicating and euphoric heights, the OG Kush is a perennial favorite. Other strains like Jack Herer have been reported to help consumers concentrate and become productive.
Aside from all other factors, your tolerance level is probably the most important part of how you feel high. If you are new to cannabis, start with weaker strains and lower doses, assuming your tolerable levels are low. Always purchase weeds from a licensed pharmacy and consult a qualified medical professional before starting a cannabis regimen.
