Who doesn’t remember their first time trying pot? Not only was it exciting, but it was also an experience unlike any other. But as with any new activity, you had no clue what to expect. In fact, you probably didn’t know much of anything when it came to the wonderful world of weed. From how to properly inhale your ganja to learning how to grind your bud, here are 11 things you wish you knew when you first started getting high.

1. Holding your hits in for extended periods of time isn’t necessary

Do you remember thinking that holding in your bong hits would get you twice as high? If so, then you know that all it really did was make you choke.

2. The grinder is your best friend

via GIPHY

At first, you likely broke down your bud with your fingers. Or, you were so clueless that you just ripped off chunks of weed and smoked them. Now, you know that a grinder is an essential tool.

3. Weed won’t (typically) make you trip out

Did you think you’d see some mystical creature while high? If so, you aren’t alone. But as it turns out, pot won’t make you see a random unicorn in the woods after all.

4. The difference between indica and sativa

That time you smoked a sativa at 2 am and had no idea.

5. There’s more than one way to get high

Aside from that Pepsi can you once loved so much, there have always been countless ways to get high. You didn’t know it at the time, though.

6. Storing your stash in a plastic bag is not a permanent solution

Oh, the amount of bud you wasted by leaving it in a plastic bag for days. Stash jars are the way to go.

7. Eating raw weed won’t get you stoned

Then, there’s the time you ate raw pot expecting it to get you high.

8. Smoking your bud until it turns to ashes is not healthy

via GIPHY

You spend your hard earned money on your bud, so of course, you want to make it last as long as possible. However, smoking on the same ganja until it turns to ashes not only tastes terrible but is also harsh on your lungs.

9. Packing fresh weed on top of ashes is also a no-no

via GIPHY

In an attempt to make your pot last, you decided to pack fresh ganja on top of weed that you probably lit a good 15 times. In the end, all you accomplished was a clogged piece. Always empty out your device before packing it again.

10. Edibles take time to kick in

via GIPHY

Unlike smoking the herb, edibles can take anywhere from thirty minutes to two hours to get you lit.

11. Holding smoke in your mouth will not do the trick

via GIPHY

You have to actually inhale. Who knew?

I am a free spirit located in a small college town. Most of the time I am busy working towards my degree in Healthcare Management. During my spare time, I enjoy writing, reading, shopping, music and board games. Most of all, I like Cannabis. I am a firm believer in Cannabis and the good it does for people. Marijuana is my motivator, my medicine for when I'm sick, and my most favored pick-me-up. Meeting and connecting with other Cannabis lovers is a passion of mine. It's a nice feeling to know that so many people feel the same way I do on the subject.
