Taking things to the next level is the only way to go once you have found an activity that is especially enjoyable. Whether you enjoy fast cars, long walks by the beach or the occasional THC-induced high, maximizing the pleasure of the experience with the best products and setup makes an aficionado out of the casual participant.
Following are some of the most effective ways to get the most from your soothing tokes.
1. Look for Higher THC Content
This is obviously the first way to make the most of each hit. On your next trip to your favorite dispensary be sure to study the labels carefully and note the differences of the different strains. Product labels today not only feature the level of THC but also CD content. Most of the herb available on the market today contains between 12 percent and 18 percent THC. For the next best thing look for a strain called Chem D.O.G., which won the 2015 Cannabis Cup with a THC content of 32.13 percent.
2. Consider Concentrates
Kief and Hash have been the most common examples of concentrates available on the market, until recently. In the constant effort to improve upon the old, highly developed concentrates have sprung up across the market and are called “wax”, “oils” or “shatter”. These products have gone through a refining process that isolates the THC and terpenes, also known as “the stuff that does the trick”. Chem D.O.G. may be the most powerful bud on the current market, but the concentrate that came in first place in the Cannabis Cup had a THC content of 82.22 percent. Enough to tranquilize a Clydesdale. You will need to purchase the correct delivery system and learn to use it effectively, but this is just more fun.
3. Explore the World of Edibles
If you have been restricted to the classic pipes or joints, you will be most rewarded to consider ingesting your THC content. The THC absorbed in the digestive tract is converted into a metabolite that crosses the blood to brain barrier very effectively. This leads to a deeper more intense high that lasts considerably longer than your smoked high.
4. Exercise After Smoking
What get up and run around after your high? Why not? As it turns out the “runner’s high” experienced in sessions of intense exercise is caused by the same endocannabinoid system that is aroused when smoking or ingesting marijuana. This means you can double your pleasure by scheduling your exercise after smoking and exercise strengthens the lungs.
5. The Tolerance Break
If you have allowed sweet Mary jane to become a regular part of your life, you may be reluctant to kiss her good-bye even for a moment. But they say, “absence makes the heart grow fonder”, this is true in your love life as in your love-of-weed life. Take a week off to allow your body to clean out the last vestiges of the substance. When you smoke again all your cannabinoid receptors will be clean and ready for a good show. Prepare for liftoff in 3…2…1… we have contact!
