Whether you’re a newcomer or you’ve been smoking cannabis for years, there are a few things you can do to improve your smoking experience like a pro.
From using the best products to representing the cannabis community with poise and intellect, here are five tips to keep in mind to smoke like a pro.
Here are some tips for smoking cannabis like a true connoisseur.
Cannabis tolerance can increase over time, which means you’ll need more to feel the same effects.
To avoid wasting your precious cannabis and maintain an effective experience, consider taking tolerance breaks.
These periods without consumption allow your body to readjust, which can reduce the amount you need to feel high. Breaks can last anywhere from a week to a month, depending on your personal needs and preferences.
But also take it on the side of knowing how to measure yourself. There’s no point in using non-stop if you’re going to end up on the un-fun side of the effects.
Cannabis has a wide variety of uses and you shouldn’t fall into negative stereotypes.
The stereotype of the pothead is out of fashion, maybe sometimes we are, but there is no doubt that cannabis users have a lot to offer to society.
Instead, use cannabis consciously and responsibly to improve your well-being. For example, you can consume before performing tasks such as cleaning or working to make them more enjoyable and effective.
Microdoses or smaller puffs can increase your concentration without leaving you intoxicated and drowsy. Acting like a responsible user helps demystify the stigma associated with cannabis.
Consider when and how you prefer to consume cannabis.
Take advantage of the benefits of cannabis at specific times of the day.
If you prefer to consume in the morning, look for strains that give you a boost of energy and motivation to start your day. On the other hand, if you struggle with insomnia, opt for products designed to help you sleep better at night.
Remember that different strains and terpenes can affect differently how you feel and what effects you will have; know which strains go best with which activities, as well as which t5e products feel best. The cannabis journey is also a journey of self-knowledge that can be a lot of fun.
Herb’s Tip: If you have an important event, a first date, an interview, or something like that, stick with the familiar; this is not the time to try new strains or products.
As a general rule of thumb, don’t skimp on the quality of your cannabis products, and always verify that you are buying products from reputable brands and that they do third-party lab testing.
Buying high-quality products not only enhances your experience but can also save you money in the long run.
Avoid poor-quality products that can negatively affect the flavor and quality of the smoke. From rolling papers to accessories like lighters, make sure you use high-quality tools to get the most enjoyment out of your cannabis.
If you participate in cannabis-related social gatherings, remember the importance of sharing and contributing.
If you are invited to a cannabis consumption gathering, it is appropriate to bring your own supply or snacks to share. This shows respect and contributes to the collective experience.
Also, if you are a cannabis grower, consider sharing your harvest with other consumers to enrich the experience and showcase your growing skills.
These are some of the customs or rules of thumb you should always keep in mind:
Perfect Rolls: If you are skilled in the art of rolling a joint, offer to do it. Make sure you are skilled so you don’t waste cannabis or paper, you can also let them know you are learning and you are sure to get one or two useful tips.
Know the Rules: If you’re the one in charge of rolling the perfect joint, you have the honor of lighting it first. Follow the rules of cannabis etiquette.
Puff, Puff, Pass
Don’t hog the joint. Follow the “puff, puff, pass” rule and offer the joint after two puffs.
Saliva Under Control
You’re smoking a joint, not giving a passionate kiss. It is inevitable that some saliva will be shared, but keep the moisture to a minimum to maintain the integrity of the filter and avoid discomfort.
Pass The Joint Correctly
When passing the joint, make sure the end of the filter is toward the next person for ease of reception.
Respect Personal Decisions
If someone declines your offer to share, respect their decision. Don’t pressure anyone to participate.
If you are a cannabis expert, share your knowledge with others. Most consumers love to learn about new strains and properties of cannabis.
