With smoking recreational marijuana becoming legalized in state after state, many moms are considering lighting up for the first time. If you are one of those people that live in a state where it has become legal to “hang with Mary Jane” and you’ve never tried weed before, you might be wondering what to expect.
There are different effects of cannabis on different users, and some first-timers will not experience any effects at all, which is perfectly normal. Dizziness will be felt by others, while paranoia will make others feel highly stoned. You may feel sleepy or have cravings. There is no one-size-fits-all regarding strain, quantity, and mood.
While the positive benefits of marijuana compounds like CBD have been studied for years, the effects of smoking weed can be different for everyone. Whether you try weed for the first time with a trusted friend or have some orders for delivery from the weed store, you should know what to expect. Let’s take a closer look at a few things that first-time weed smokers should know.
“Dry mouth” is one of the most common adverse effects of cannabis use. It would help if you kept a bottle of water nearby to refresh and keep your mouth hydrated. It is much better to hydrate yourself before smoking. Cottonmouth is caused by cannabis, which is only temporary. Eventually, this feeling will pass.
The psychoactive compound in marijuana, THC, interacts with the saliva-producing submandibular glands in the mouth. THC sends a signal to the brain that temporarily cuts off saliva production resulting in the feeling of dry mouth.
Don’t Be Disappointed
Most users feel a bit of a high the first time they smoke, but it doesn’t always happen. The more often you smoke, the more satisfying your high will be. It’s not recommended that you increase your dosage quickly, but take your time to find the correct dose.
It may seem like a cheap and straightforward solution to purchase marijuana from a random stranger in the street, but it should be avoided. The purity of the cannabis you receive cannot be guaranteed. Don’t forget to be extremely cautious about where and who you are getting your weed from. A reputable source should be used when purchasing it.
Don’t Smoke Alone
When it comes to mind-altering substances, it’s best not to experiment on your own with something you’ve never tried before. It’s pretty helpful to have someone with you who is trustworthy, sensible, and experienced. They will help you stay grounded if you are overwhelmed by the consequences of a horrible event. As you get acquainted with your boundaries and smoke marijuana for a while, you’ll feel more relaxed smoking on your own.
Choose a Mellow Strain
When you smoke marijuana, you should first learn some basics and then gradually progress. In this scenario, it would be best if you opted for beginner-friendly strains like Maui Wowie, White Widow, or Harlequin. With experience and a solid understanding of what to expect when hanging with Mary Jane, which strains work best, and how to manage your intoxication, you can progress to something more robust if you need it.
