5 Marijuana Tips Every Beginner Should Know

Here we will go over five marijuana tips every new consumer should know.

If you are considering using cannabis for the first time, you may be quite anxious about what to expect. The uncertainty alone can make your first smoke session scary.

Luckily, below we have listed some valuable tips that can ease your mind and support your journey as a beginner. 

1) Choosing the Right Strain is Important 

When you are first introduced to marijuana, you may be in a dispensary or with friends. Either way, you probably have no idea that there are many different types of weed, and each type provides a different outcome.  

There are three different base types of cannabis strains: Indica, Sativa, and Hybrid.

Indica strains provide a body buzz that leaves you feeling relaxed and sleepy. These strains are great for insomnia, pain, and anxiety and are best if smoked at night. 

Sativa strains provide a head buzz that leads to increased energy and euphoria. These strains are great for chronic pain, anxiety, and depression and are best if smoked during the day.

Hybrid strains are a mix of indica and sativa, meaning that they provide a mix of effects. Smoking a hybrid normally leads to feeling happy, calm, energized, hungry, and sleepy. These strains are great for smoking any time of day.

2) Smoke Somewhere You are Comfortable 

Not only where you smoke but who you smoke with is important because your comfort is essential to enjoying your experience.

Choose to smoke with people you trust, in a safe place you are familiar with, and in a comfy seat that is easy on your back.

Some strains will have you “couch-locked,” meaning you won’t want to move, so a comfy seat is ideal. Also, sometimes cannabis can lead to paranoia and anxiety, so you want to smoke with people you are comfortable with. 

Even when you become an experienced cannabis consumer you should still follow this tip.

3) Start Slow

One of the most essential beginner tips to follow is to start slow.

Your friends may be able to take hit after hit off a blunt or bowl, but as an unseasoned smoker, you will not be able to keep the same pace. Just like alcohol, the more cannabis you consume, the higher you build your tolerance.

At first, you should only smoke one small hit and wait about 15 minutes before taking another. This method gives you a chance to see how the cannabis is affecting you. You can then decide whether or not you want to smoke more. 

If you smoke too much, you will get too high which, might result in nausea, shaking, fast heart rate, paranoia, and anxiety. 

4) You Will Get Too High

No matter how easy you go on your tokes, there will come a time when you get too high. Some strains are simply too strong to even take one hit of and if not prepared, getting too high can be very upsetting and uncomfortable.

Since this is more likely to happen as a beginner, it is essential to know how to handle the situation when it happens.

If you find yourself too high, there are many things you can do to keep yourself calm while the cannabis wears off. 

  • Take a nap to sleep it off
  • Distract yourself with a funny or interesting movie.
  • Take a shower to help you sober up
  • Get some exercise outside to help you sober up and distract yourself.  

For the most part, sobering up is a waiting game but you can use these few tips to help push along the process and keep your mind busy while you wait. 

5) You Should Know the Marijuana Laws in Your State

When it comes to consuming marijuana, every state will have different laws in effect.

Some states like California, allow medical and recreational use, while states like Ohio, only allow medical use.

Before you consider using cannabis, make sure you understand what is legal and what is not.

If your state has legalized recreational use, you can go to almost any dispensary or even gas station to pick out some bud with nothing more than some money and a valid ID. 

If your state has only legalized medical consumption, you will have to apply and be approved for a medical marijuana card.

Additionally, each state has specific laws regarding how much cannabis can be purchased at a time, how much you can possess, how to carry or transport it, and more.  

If you follow your state’s laws, you will never have to worry about running into legal trouble over your weed.
