First Time Experiencing Weed, What to Expect?


So you’ve finally decided to take the plunge and see what all the fuss is about when it comes to smoking weed. The first time can be a little awkward, but it will get easier with practice. The most important thing is to remember that everyone experiences things differently, and you might not like it at first. However, if you give it another try later on, your opinion might change completely! 

There are many factors that determine whether or not somebody enjoys smoking weed; the type of strain, your mental state and your environment all affect your experience. While some people may find they enjoy smoking weed regularly, others may only do so on special occasions or under certain circumstances. To get ready for your first time trying weed, take these suggestions into account so that you have a positive experience from the very beginning!

Know Your Stuff

Before you even start smoking, make sure you know all about the strains of weed that are out there. Your budtender will be able to guide you, but you should be able to read labels and know the basics of each type before you go. 

For example, sativa strains are typically known to be uplifting, while indica strains are generally more relaxing. Knowing the basics of marijuana strains will help you to decide which ones will be best for your first time smoking, as well as to understand how certain strains can affect various people in different ways.

Plan Where and with Whom You’ll Be Smoking

One of the most important things to think about before you smoke is where you will be doing it, and with whom. The environment in which you are smoking will affect your experience, so choose your setting carefully. Some people prefer to be at home when they smoke, while others might prefer to do it at a friend’s house or in a park. 

Some smokers prefer to smoke outside, while others enjoy staying in. You might want to try smoking in different places at different times to see what you like best. As for who you will be smoking with, try to choose people you trust and feel comfortable around.

Research Your Strain Options

As we mentioned above, different strains have different effects. If you have tried a few strains and still don’t know what you like, keep trying new ones until you find something that fits your needs. Certain strains are better for certain things: Indica strains may help you sleep, while sativa strains may help you focus. Make sure you know what you are looking for before making a purchase.

Don’t Burn Too Much at Once

This one may seem obvious, but it really is important. If you are smoking in a group setting, you may want to make sure that everybody is smoking at the same rate so that nobody gets too high, as this could make the experience more unpleasant for other smokers. 

However, smoking too much at once is a common mistake among first-time smokers. Don’t try to smoke like a pro on your first time. Start slow, and try to only smoke the amount that you know you can handle. When you smoke too much at once, you may get too high too quickly and not really enjoy the experience like you want to. Experiment with different amounts until you find a sweet spot.

Take Care of Yourself 

Before you smoke, make sure you are well hydrated, have eaten a good meal and have plenty of water nearby. You may also want to take a walk or do some light stretching before you smoke, but don’t do anything that might make you tired or sleepy.

After you smoke, make sure you drink plenty of water and eat a light snack to replenish your energy. You may also want to plan for a relaxing activity, such as listening to music or reading a book, to help you transition into a more relaxed state of mind after smoking. It can also be helpful to have a group of friends you can talk to to help you relax and enjoy your high.

Summing Up

Whether or not you enjoy your first time smoking will depend on your mindset, the type of strain you try and the environment in which you do it. If you follow these tips and try to relax and enjoy the experience, you are much more likely to have a positive first experience with smoking marijuana

If you don’t like it the first time, don’t worry. There is no rule that says you have to smoke every time you go to a party. Some people enjoy it, and others don’t. It’s completely up to you, and with a little guidance, you can be sure to make the right choice for you. Tier1 is ready to meet your cannabis needs. Contact us today!
