How To Get The Highest, From A Small Amount Of Weed

Here are the 6 Ways to Get the Highest from a Small Amount of Weed

1. Don’t Even Think About a Joint or a Blunt

The least-efficient way to get high is to roll a joint or a blunt because they require a lot of bud (figure each one uses about half a gram) and a lot of that great smoke ends up wasted. We don’t have to tell you why; whenever you’re not dragging, the pot is still burning and the smoke is floating up into the atmosphere where it doesn’t do anyone any good.

If you consider smoking a joint an integral part of the experience and can’t imagine anything else, at least roll a pinner joint which will use less pot and smoke better, or roll with the paper inside-out which will cause the joint to burn more slowly.

2. Use a One-Hitter

These handy pipes aren’t just easy to carry around or hide in a pocket, they also help you get the most out of a limited supply. Because of the way they’re constructed, you can get a surprisingly good punch from them even though you’ve only put a small amount of weed inside. Not enough of a punch to get you high? Opt for a chillum, which will give you 4-5 good hits without burning up the rest of your stash.

3. Try a Glass Blunt

Glass blunts (plastic or glass pipes shaped like blunts) are getting more and more popular, for very good reasons. There’s no waste (there are no roaches leftover), they’re easy to use, and they give you a whopping good blast for your buck.

4. Vape Instead of Smoke

Since you’re heating the ganja instead of burning it, there’s less waste – so you’ll get higher from the amount of vape created than you would from smoke produced by the same quantity of flower. You can also take the AVB (already vaped bud) after your session and repurpose it in edibles; it’s already been decarbed so you can put it right into brownies, make cannabutter with it, or bake firecrackers (AVB and peanut butter, spread on graham crackers and baked in tin foil for 15 minutes or so). You can roll it and smoke the AVB, too; it will taste nasty but will really add to your buzz.

5. Have Some Coffee or Some Fruit

We have no idea whether the scientific proof of this is legit (it’s based on a 2014 study that was done with squirrel monkeys), but drinking a small amount of coffee helps a small high last longer. Don’t drink too much coffee, though; according to the study, it will just make you want more and more weed.

Other foods said to boost a buzz include mangos and nuts; the myrcene terpenes in mangos and the omega-3 fatty acids in nuts help THC pass through the blood-brain barrier faster.

6. Play Amateur Mixmaster

Many herbs including sage and thyme contain pinene terpenes, which open lung passages and allow the body to absorb TCH more easily. Mixing your pot with them will let you enjoy the stash you have left for a longer period of time while adding to your high.

Mixing pot with other herbs, including CBD, damiana or mullein, may not get you more stoned. But being able to smoke longer may make you feel like you’re increasing the buzz. Just think back to the days when you could only afford skunk weed, but told all of your friends loudly “Man, I’m so wasted!” You get the idea.


5. Try a Different Method of Ingestion

If you’ve been smoking weed and are not getting as high as you would like, it may be time to ingest it differently. There are many different ways to ingest cannabis, and each method will have its unique effects. Some people prefer edibles, while others drink cannabis-infused beverages. You can also try vaporizing or using a cannabis tincture. Experiment with different methods and see which one works best for you.

2) Water Cure for Weed

Pot smoking and medible eating can seriously dry you out; dehydration can add to the dizziness and nausea that you may already be feeling from bingeing on your buds. Drinking water will dilute the concentration of THC in your bloodstream and serve as how to get unhigh quickly. Most cannabis strain reviews – and we oughta know, we’ve written more than a few ourselves – generally mention dry mouth and dry eyes as among the most common side effects of weed smoking, and it applies as well to eating decarboxylated weed baked in a brownie. You can reduce negative effects by staying hydrated to begin with before, during and after toking or eating pot – but when the high sucker-punches you in the back of the skull, then guzzling some water can help start the process. Combining drinking a lot of water with taking ibuprofen, like we mentioned above, certainly makes all kinds of good sense.

Once you drink some water to come back from the marijuana high, it can take about 45 minutes to an hour or so for the water to pass through your stomach and kidneys and get distributed throughout your body – but because your body’s fat cells store THC and because eating weed edibles time releases the effects for hours, you will still feel some dehydration effects for 2-3 hours if you smoked it and up to six hours if you ate it. Water isn’t a fast cure, but the compounded effects of cannabis and the dryness that results from consuming a lot of cannabis, via your lungs or digestively, will be reduced the less dehydrated you become.

Orange or lemon juice and weed, as a cure for being stoned out of your gourd, could be even more effective in rehydrating you and stopping your high – for one thing, the sugar in the orange juice can boost your metabolism and restore your electrolytes, and since citrus juices contain water it can also rehydrate you and thus reduce the dizziness and nausea of desert dryness after dabbing, toking or munching an edible.

Inhaling from a Bowl

Using a grinder, break up your bud and place it in the bowl. For more information on using grinders, read the THCoverdose Guide on grinders.

On the side of the bowl is a carb hole.

Put your thumb over that hole and bring the smoking mechanism up to your mouth.

With your spare hand, light the weed.

Simultaneously inhale the smoke.

Try Switching to Other Smoking Options

For example, if you’ve been smoking joints recently, you should start thinking about going for a vaping, bong, or even blunts for that matter. Changing your methods up can work for you. Give it a try and see if you feel any difference.

2. Smoke in Moderation

If you smoke cannabis regularly, you may have built up a tolerance, which means the bud that used to get you really high is no longer having the same effect. Smoking in moderation is critical when it comes to getting high. If they smoke too much, they may end up feeling overwhelmed or even sick. Start with a small amount and see how it affects them. If they want to get higher, they should try smoking more, but be careful not to overdo it. This will reduce the chances of feeling overwhelmed.

8) Sleep Away the Stoned Out of Your Gourd Ganja Blues

Sometimes laying down and letting yourself kinda pass out is a good way to wait out the effects of a bad bud binge. You lose the benefit of a sped-up metabolism from being active and exercising, but while you are resting, your body does have the time and resources to digest the medible you ate or rehydrate from your reefer revelry – make sure you chug some water before collapsing onto the couch or into your bedrock guidelines in a blancket burrito possition. Then you can help yourself succumb to sleep by trying deep meditative belly breaths, in through your nose and out through your mouth; the idea is to relax your mind, and just drift away. In three to six hours, depending on what and how much cannabis you toked or ingested, your high should be largely worn off.

If you do nap away in your blancket burrito possition your nug nightmare, you may have some strange and trippy dreams – but they’re probably better than what’s on all 157 cable or satellite TV channels anyway! Just don’t get up later on and immediately wake ‘n bake – that could be counterproductive!

Finally, Take a Break! You May be Doing too Much

If you’re tried everything and nothing seems to be working for you, this is high time that you should take a break. A break from getting high. Tolerance break.You’ve been trying and nothing much has been happening and that too from a while is a sign. Think of why you’re chasing the high. Have you been overdoing it? Or have you been overindulging in the habit? Whatever is the reason, be honest with yourself; it’s about time that you should consider taking a break. Try and see for how long can you last without being high. A month or more than that? Although it is believed that it takes about one complete month to get the cannabinoids to completely leave your body physiologically, it’s important to remember that the longer your break is going to be, the better it will define how stronger a high you’re going to get the next time you’re doing it.So in times like these, taking a break would be a wise choice. Because if nothing else has made any difference, this has got to be it.

One idea of how to get really high off of weed is to stop smoking it and eat it! With legal marijuana, you CANNOT overdose.

You can, however, consume so much weed and get so high that you leave reality for a while. If this is what you’re after (and who isn’t?), you should try edibles.

When you smoke, you can only ingest the one puff you’re working on at a time. When you eat, you can put as much marijuana in your system as your belly can fit!

Be careful though! Adjusting from smoking to eating weed can be tricky. Many people report falling asleep.

That’s what a marijuana overdose looks like: you get tired and want to go to bed and take a nap. If you eat a huge amount of edible pot, you might not get high, you might fall asleep and miss it!

3. The Way Too High Fast Food Munchies Mix-Up

We all know that when the munchies hit while being really freakin’ baked, they hit really hard…

Two friends were driving around after blazing, enjoying 4 or 5 bowls. They were pretty stoned by this poit, and suddenly decided that they had the craving for McDonald’s. They decided to go through the drive-thru, which had a pretty big late-night line, (apparent,ly a lot of people have this “craving” in the evening, or maybe they are all just mega baked too).

After waiting about 20 minutes to get to the order window (which probably felt like 2 hours for the two high friends), one of them looked at the other and suddenly exclaimed, “dude, we are at f**king Wendy’s!”.

The duo got pretty embarrassed about the whole mix-up, but decided to order nevertheless because they were just completely starving by this point.

How to Stop the Coughing Fits

For newbies, coughing is an inevitable part of the smoking process.

The best way to curb this scenario is to avoid it before its happening.

First, take some tiny hits.

You wouldn’t just jump into a weight room and start benching 400 pounds.

Pulling that much smoke into your lungs is giving your body a workout it is not used to.

Work up your cough resistance by gradually working up your inhalation tolerance.

Can You Smoke and Still Be Healthy?

Many health-conscious individuals often face the q

Many health-conscious individuals often face the question “Can you smoke weed and still be healthy?” The fact of the matter is that smoking is not healthy. Period. Burning any substance, be it cigarettes, cigars, leaves, flowers, blunts, or joints, and then inhaling the smoke causes harm to your body and negatively affects your lungs and circulatory system at the very least. 

Take A Break

It’s not fun, but the best way to reduce your tolerance to marijuana is to take a break. How long your break lasts will determine how it affects you. Your body stores THC in fat cells all over your system.

Under normal circumstances, your body moves energy in and out of your healthy fat cells all the time. Your body is constantly using and replacing fat cells all over. Over time, you’ll flush the THC out of your system through natural metabolism.

You can speed up this process in several ways. Drinking plenty of water is one of the best ways. Getting regular exercise and sleep will help you reduce your weed tolerate capacity as well.

It can take up to 90 days for your body to metabolize all the THC that is sitting in your tissues.

Once the THC has been taken out of your system completely, you’ll be pretty much a newbie to smoking weed once again! Of course, you’ll know what to expect, so you won’t be a weed virgin. Sorry, it’s not going to be like the first time.

But you’ll still get blazed! Consider taking a few months off each year to renew your ability to get really high. Your body will appreciate it!

How Much Herb Should You Smoke?

If you’re smoking good old-fashioned herb then you’re probably only going to need a few hits if it’s your first time. The effects of weed can be felt anywhere from instantly to up to several minutes. If it’s your first time then just take 1 or 2 hits, and wait for a few minutes. If you’re still not high you can take another hit. Usually, beginners would not need to smoke an entire bowl or joint by themselves to get high. If the quality is decent then 3 or 4 hits total should get the job done. If you’re new to this I highly recommend checking out two of my other articles: How to Smoke Weed Properly: A First-Timer’s Guide and 7 Reasons Why You Aren’t Getting High From Weed.

Remember, the more you smoke the higher your tolerance is going to get. Individuals with high tolerances may need multiple bowls or joints to feel effects. Some people report smoking so much they can’t get high anymore. If this is the case I highly recommend taking a tolerance break.

Take a tolerance break

One major way to feel more stoned is to get stoned less often. If you are a strictly recreational and moderate consumer of cannabis, you can probably attest to feeling a bit smacked in the head when you pick it up again, whereas a daily or medical consumer may need a more potent punch to feel the vibe. Taking what’s called a “T break” (short for tolerance) for a period of time reflective of your consumption habits gives your body’s CB receptors a chance to reset.

If you smoke more will it last longer?

As we’ve discussed, when your bloodstream contains a certain amount of THC your body begins to store the excess THC in your fat cells (including fat cells in the brain). This means that if you smoke more, you will technically stay stoned longer because the stored THC will be slowly released from your fat cells over time. And yes, the fatter you are the more THC your body will store for later release.

However, don’t get too excited and reach for the cookie dough to put on some pounds and stay high for longer. When the THC is re-released from your fats cells, it doesn’t deliver the same type of high as when you originally smoked the weed. You’ll experience it as more of a mellow, chilled out feeling for the next couple of days. Some people describe this feeling as a weed hangover, but that all depends on your point of view.
