Some folks don’t pick up their first joint until they’re well into adulthood. Others, however, have been smoking ever since they first locked lips with Mary Jane as a teenager. When you’ve been ripping bongs and rolling fatties for practically your entire life, then you know a thing or two about the herb. So if smoking weed is as natural to you as breathing, this one is for you. Here are 8 other things you’ll understand if you’ve been smoking weed forever:

1. Potent weed, potent weed everywhere.

If there’s one thing you’ll understand if you’ve been smoking weed forever, it’s that we’ve come a long way since the days of smoking on Reggie weed. Now, some strains contain as much as 35% THC. Like Nova OG, for example. Not to mention, there’s this thing called dabbing, which involves ingesting insanely potent concentrates, such as Strawberry Cough, a dab that holds a whopping 92.92% THC. What a time to be alive.

2. You have no idea how many times you’ve smoked.

Sooner or later, every cannabis consumer gets asked how many times they’ve smoked pot. For those that have only dabbled in the herb a handful of times, that’s an easy question to answer.  But to people that have been smoking weed forever, it’s a lot like getting asked how many times you have breathed today.

3. There’s a big difference between a day with weed and a day without weed.

Skipping out on weed for a day is like choosing not to brush your teeth. And the more the day progresses, the more you wish you would have taken a few minutes to feel like a human again.

4. Holding in your hits is pointless.

“Holding in a hit of weed for as long as you can gets you higher.” You’ve heard that one before, but you know it’s nonsense. Roughly 95% of THC is absorbed within the first few seconds of inhalation. Duh.

5. You’re more yourself when you’ve smoked weed than when you haven’t.

Of all the things you’ll understand if you’ve been smoking weed forever, the most relatable is that you’re not yourself unless you’ve had a few bowl packs of the giggle bush. You’re like the guy/gal from the Snicker’s commercial that hasn’t had their candy yet, cranky and just meh overall. Either you’re high or not high enough. There is no in between.

6. When it comes to rolling joints, you are always the chosen one.

When you’ve been smoking weed forever, being able to roll the perfect fatty sort of comes with the territory. You’re proud of your skills, no doubt. But sometimes, you really wish your friends could prepare the proper blunt or joint as excellently as you. That way, you wouldn’t get stuck with the weed and papers all the time. Sometimes you surprise them with a treat, like Juicy Jay’s Very Cherry rolling papers.

7. You may or may not have done some questionable things as a long-time weed smoker…

No one likes to admit that they’ve found an old bag of bud and smoked it. And it’s especially cringy to say that a soda can was once your smoking device of choice. But at some point in every cannabis consumer’s life, especially if they’ve been smoking forever, you’re going to do something shameful. Like, make a bong out of a plastic ketchup bottle. Desperate times call for drastic measures.

8. You know a shit deal when you see one

You’ve dealt with your fair share of weed dealers in your day, that’s for sure. Scale or no scale, you know precisely what a shit deal looks like. After all, you’ve been smoking weed forever. So before you spend your hard earned money on the goods, you always make sure that your bud man is indeed “hooking you up.”
