Updated: Apr 7

Perhaps your state just legalized marijuana… or you have flirted with the idea for a while and finally decided to take the plunge… or alcohol’s next-day hangover finally took a toll on your body and you are searching for healthier alternatives… However you got here, you’re an informed consumer and want to do your due diligence before partaking.

You might not get high at all the first time… and that’s totally normal!

First thing first, let’s set some realistic expectations. I still remember the first time I smoked and complained to my cousin about not feeling anything. What I didn’t admit at the time was that I was a little scared and barely inhaled. It probably took me 3-4 more tries to learn to inhale properly. Welp, that’s disappointing given the happy, euphoric effect you were promised. The truth is your first-time experience can be anything: no impact, mildly euphoric, giggly, hyper, couchlock, sleepy, paranoid, nauseous. Or none of these! (whooattt?)
