Inyo the best way to smoke cannabis

Back in the day, smoking was an easy thing to do with very minimal options. They turned apples into pipes, invested in bongs, and even baked brownies. Today, cannabis consumption includes high-tech vapes and bongs that mimic modern art sculptures. Everyone has their favorite way to get high, but the endless question is: What’s the best way to get high?

The answer is, it all depends on your preferred smoking method. Different forms of cannabis produce slightly different results depending on how fast you want to get high and how intense you want your high to be. With more states and countries loosening their cannabis restrictions, people are able to experiment more with what cannabis has to offer. 

How high?

First things first, the cannabinoids in your herb, such as THC, are what produce a high feeling. Once they enter your body, they travel through your bloodstream and eventually hit particular receptors in the brain. This causes the neurotransmission reactions to produce the effects that you feel. How high you get during a session is dictated by the number of cannabinoids in the body and how fast they travel to the brain. Often times, regular users will build up a tolerance to the cannabinoids and may not feel the same effects as their very first hit. 

If that’s the case and you are in dire need of feeling that same sensation, there are multiple options you can use to achieve the best results in boosting your high. 

1) The method to your madness

The type of cannabis you are smoking is just half the equation. The way you smoke makes a bigger difference on your high. Most people stick to one device or smoking method. Trying different methods will give a different sensation with each experience. If you just like to smoke, experimenting with edibles will help you avoid using your lungs. Edibles and dabs are considered two of the most effective, high-potency cannabis products. Some methods include:


  • Gravity Bongs
  • Bubblers & Bongs
  • Vaporizers
  • Pipes
  • Edibles

2) Choose your strains wisely

Knowing the mellowing impacts of indicas and face-tingling excitement of sativas can help you discover what sensations will emerge. Indica’s are often used to reduce pain, anxiety, and sleeping problems. Sativa’s tend to make you more energized. You can even find out what THC levels to expect and may want to find a higher THC strain than you’re used to. When experimenting with new strains, you’ll find one that you prefer over the other. 

3) Grind your cannabis

Grinding up your cannabis has several benefits and is a good standard practice for getting the most out of your cannabis. Finer pieces pack it together much more neatly and will produce a smoother smoke. It allows for an even, slow burn and subsequently a better high.

4) Change up your routine/scenery

Believe it or not, changing your environment while smoking can improve your high. Whether you’re hitting a plateau with your high, or it just doesn’t feel how it use to you should try to switch up your routine by smoking in a new place, with new people, or change your session to a different time during the day. Try abstaining until the evening. If you usually smoke in the morning, try it at night instead. Changing your location, as well as your music and just your routine as a whole might change your perspective. When opening your mind to new experiences, you will probably find the high to be a lot more engaging. 

4) Exercise

When you exercise, your body releases endorphins that will help ease the pain, and after each workout, these endorphins tend to help clear your mind! Some people have found an increased high while smoking after a rigorous work out session. It not only relaxes your muscles, but your body and may even spark some motivation to hit the gym. 

5) Take the time to inhale and exhale

The most common mistake is not inhaling the smoke into your lungs when hitting a bong, pipe, or vape. It’s important to slow down and make sure that you are truly inhaling that smoke. If the inhaling process is a bit awkward at first, try to follow a 4-2-4 count. Gently inhale for 4 seconds, pause for 2 seconds, then exhale for another 4 seconds. Inhaling some fresh oxygen in the process as you pull the bowl or pre-roll away from your mouth for a second will help push the smoke further into your lungs. 

6) Take a tolerance break

No one wants to hear this, but sometimes it’s important to take a break from smoking and let your body build up a tolerance. Each time you smoke less, it will feel stronger during your next session. Tolerance breaks can be extremely effective for a better high.
