What Is The Staircase Effect And How Does It Affect Your High?
Enjoying cannabis is all about hitting the sweet spot and being on your way to the perfect high. So, what is the staircase effect?
Into staircases, but not the kind requiring a workout or any physical movement? Then you are in the right place. In the cannabis community, users are always seeking the correct route to the ideal high. Am I right? Enjoying cannabis is all about hitting the sweet spot and being on your way to the perfect high. So, what is the staircase effect?
The staircase effect
Before diving into the staircase effect, pick your cannabis and your method of use. As we’re all aware, there are so many forms of cannabis and even more ways to enjoy it. Now, sit back, and take a hit. Go slow. The staircase is all about finding your sweet spot and finding bliss in the journey along the way.
Eating a brownie infused with cannabis is not the same staircase journey as smoking a joint. We can all agree on that. Each staircase is unique, so, with that in mind, let’s dive into the unique journey’s that each smoking method can bring us.
The edible staircase can be an intimidating one. Edibles are not something to play with. To begin your ascent to the perfect high via food infused with cannabis, start slow. If you don’t, you’ll regret it, and probably never consume an edible ever again.
Remember, it can take up to four hours for an edible to “hit you.” This staircase may begin with a few sensations, namely tingling, or a slight floating sensation. When you feel ready to sit down and color, or zone out on video games, you’re nearing the top of the staircase.
Joints and vaporizers (with bud)
Joints and vaporizers allow for a relatively predictable ascent up the staircase. Both of these methods allow for a catered high and adjust easily if you begin to have a tolerance.
While one can go over the top smoking both joints and vaporizers, it doesn’t get too crazy, as opposed to if you were dabbing hardcore concentrates. The social aspect of joints and vaporizers help you to enjoy the staircase effect at a reasonable pace rather than jumping right to the top.
Concentrates take you to the staircase high up into the clouds rather quickly if you aren’t careful. Using concentrates casually and trying to reach the perfect high? Probably not going to happen. Use concentrates often? Then you can probably hit your sweet spot. In the world of concentrates, it’s all about familiarity. If you’re a seasoned dabber, you know exactly how many hits it will take you to feel just right.
No matter what, your journey up the staircase should be enjoyable. If you’re a casual user, stick with joints and vapes. If you’re more seasoned and can navigate a steady high from concentrates, dive right it.
