We know sometimes it can be scary to try new things, the unknown of what's to come can make us feel uneasy. For example, so is the case with first tattoos or piercings, we have no idea of what we're about to face, which may make our stomachs turn. 

Or perhaps these same sensations are provoked when having to face the first day at a new job, going on a first date and the list could go on. But, what have we learned from all of these first times doing things other than the fact that we have to face our fears

When it comes to stoners, we've all been at the starting point sometime too and had to climb our way up towards becoming stoners. We all had to set our fears aside, smoke weed for the first time, and experience all those new sensations of getting high

And what did we find? The wonderful world of Mary Jane! So, in case you're looking to try out weed for the first time, here are a couple of useful tips that will make you feel confident during your first experiences with cannabis. 

1. Know Who To Share This First Experience With

If you're going to smoke marijuana for the first time in your life, we highly doubt you're thinking of facing this alone, and if you are, don't.

This is an experience meant to be shared with people you care about, with whom you'll always share these beautiful (and hilarious) memories.

Choose wisely who you're sharing this first experience with.
 

On this aspect we have two suggestions:

  • Get high for the first time with your already stoner friends; 
  • Or try weed for the first time along with those friends who have never done it either. 

Choosing the right people to share this experience with is essential to ensure a good time when you try marijuana for the first time. Allow us to explain both options further to help you choose which one makes you feel more comfortable. 

Getting High For The First Time With Your Already Stoner Friends

This one is especially suitable for those of you who have the need for a sense of safety and reassurance when trying out something new. Take it as being walked into the stoner world with a sensei stoner friend.

Smoking with experienced stoner friends will make you feel safe and secure!
 

Smoking weed for the first time with already stoner friends may give you such needed confidence to let go of your fears given these guys have already gone through what you're going through right now, and look at them, besides slightly crazy, they seem fine.

These friends will be able to make you feel good all through the experience and attend to any of your baked self needs. In fact, they'll most likely feel like their baby bird is flying off the nest, so they're going to be extra excited for you, maybe even more hyped than yourself. 

Your friends will surely come along with all their favorite things to enjoy while you're baked, such as their favorite snacks and activities. Besides, since they've already been in many different stoned situations, they'll know exactly what to say and how to treat you in each of them.

Trying Weed For The First Time With Equally Inexperienced Friends

A good second alternative to try weed for the first time is smoking with friends who have never tried marijuana either. This way you'll be able to feel comfortable knowing that you're all in the exact same situation as the rest.

Get ready for the night, afternoon or whenever to get freaky and funny! Trust us, this is an experience you won't forget.

All those first highs memories still manage to put a smile on our faces when we look back at them, so make sure you enjoy yourselves to the maximum because one day you'll be sighing with nostalgia at these golden days, man did we get high those first times

2. Choosing The Right Place To Get Stoned 

Now, still speaking in lines of comfort and the sense of safety, you should previously consider the place where you'd like to get stoned for the first time. 

This place should be ideally somewhere you already know, in order to get a feeling of familiarity, for example, a friends' house, or your own, that park you always go to, or any other place you'd normally go to chill. On the contrary, just generally avoid overcrowded and over stimulating places.

Why? Well, you're going to be meeting your stoned self for the first time, and you wouldn't want any external sources to come and disturb this experience. Your sense will be enhanced so any disturbances can turn your experience into a not-so-nice one. 

Lastly, make sure you choose the day you lose your stoner virginity wisely. This means having no duties to address later, or you'll wish you hadn't made such commitments. On your first high, you should relax and enjoy!

3. "Wait... I'm Feeling... Nothing"

Another common occurrence when trying cannabis is expecting to get amazingly high, only to find that you've felt, well, nothing at alldisappointing right? No, it's not that marijuana sucks, trust us, it's just something common that happens.

This doesn't mean that you can't get high the first time you smoke, it all depends, on what? We're not sure, maybe you weren't drawing in the smoke correctly, or who knows why, it's just something that happens.

Don't worry, not feeling high the first time you try weed is pretty common!
 

Ask anyone and you'll find many different versions, people who felt nothing at all the first time, and those who got extremely high. Yet take a couple of minutes before you decide to smoke some more in order to allow enough time for the effects to kick in and avoid doing too much, which leads us to the next point. 

 

4. Take It Slow! You Can Always Some More, But You Can't Un-Smoke 

Keeping in mind that your body is a cannabis virgin, you'll need to pace yourself until you reach a level of high you feel comfortable in. This means, don't jump straight into the pool but take the steps instead. 

Take a couple of puffs and allow yourself a few moments to see if you feel the effects. Can you still handle some more? Then go ahead, just don't do too much all at once because the effects might then become too overwhelming and end up overshadowing what once could be a nice experience.

It's much better to take things slowly, baby steps folks, baby steps, and gradually increase the amounts than regretting it later. Lastly, do ask for suggestions on what to smoke, some strains are much stronger than others, which you should maybe skip for now. 

5. Know What To Expect And Allow The Feelings To Flow

One problem I usually see among people who are trying weed for the first time is that they start to overthink the effects up to the point of killing the vibes of their high. Instead, make sure you ask your friends what getting high feels like for them.

This way, you'll already get the idea before. Being stoned is all about allowing your thoughts to flow, and not overthinking anything that may make you feel uneasy. 

For instance, I always like to put as an example how easy I can burst into tears when I'm sad and high, if I allow the feelings to overwhelm me, of course.

 

5 Tips To Keep In Mind Before Smoking Weed For The First Time: Weed tends to enhance senses

Weed enhances our senses, so keep a light frame of mind when trying it for the first time.
 

Instead, I dodge that bullet and think of other things that interest me, or get distracted with my surroundings, talk with my friends, etc, etc. This means, when you're high, keep in mind you're the one in control of everything you feel, so guide those feelings towards good places. And just don't try if your mental state isn't optimal on that day.

And if you feel like things are getting out of hand, definitely call out one of your friends to help you get rid of those feelings, it works in most cases. And if all fails, there's nothing a good nap can't do.

Expect Mouth Dryness and The Munchies

Lastly, be aware of some common side effects that weed provides, such as the classic old cottonmouth, a deep mouth dryness, and the munchies, a big urge to eat after a couple of hours of getting stoned. 

 

What we mean by "expect these side effects" is, have all those things in hand, water and snacks, you will by 100% sure need them. Keep in mind that you may be visibly stoned due to your puffy red eyes, so dodge any people who may judge you for that. 

6. In Conclusion

If you want to try marijuana there's just one thing you need to do: try it! Don't be one of those who judge it without having ever tried it. Once you have, then feel free to make any opinions of it you'd like of it.

Life was meant to be lived this way, we're curious, we face our fears and try, we learn, repeat. Besides, what does one who sits comfy in their fears ever learn? It doesn't matter if the results match your expectations, if we never made mistakes how would we ever make progress?

I'd much rather run and find that I've hit my head against the wall rather than sit down dreaming of running. Next time I run I'll already have learned how to dodge that wall. Go ahead, get high for the first time and enjoy! 

And please do send us comments about your first experiences being high!
