What Does It Feel Like to Be High on Marijuana?

September 30, 2020

If you have ever come across a situation where you want to take in marijuana and you don’t know how the effect is or how you would end up feeling, the bad news is that marijuana high has no constant effect due to the fact that it affects users differently than the other person.

This herb can give off an intense effect and it varies from one person to the other. Some people might feel relaxed, others might feel laughter, increased appetite happiness as well as a changed time and sensory perception. But the effects can also come as ”not-pleasing”.

Users who take the herb may feel the full effect about 30 minutes after intake or a few minutes with smoking and it can last for hours depending on certain factors. I know you are curious now and you want to know how it feels like being high, so let’s jump right in.

Sensations of being under the influence of marijuana

Just like we stated above, weed has different effects on different people and this means that some people may turn out to be very sensitive to the effects. Others would just flow with the high.

The way marijuana affects you depends on factors which may be how you ingest it (Smoking, Vaping, and edibles), How well you use weed, your body metabolism, the dose or potency of the plant, and also if you drink alcohol or take other pills before or after you get high.

While being high on Marijuana, most users have reported time being linear and out of touch. An experienced user once stated that her eyes go blurry and then the colors of her surroundings become very bright and clear. This is the exact sign of euphoria and in some certain cases, you would feel more relaxed than ever.

Other users also tend to be slightly amused once they hit that high roof. They would giggle to anything and everything you say whether it is funny, amusing, or clearly normal. We haven’t even talked about the creativity that comes with the feeling of ”I can do it all”. Music, Videos, arts, and literature would be solely appreciated and you might even find yourself deeply partaking in any of it. Improved sensitivity to sound, light smell as well as touch would be also heightened. Let’s not also forget about the fact that in some cases, you would feel hungry and you would kill to satisfy those cravings.

What does it feel like to vape marijuana?

When you vape marijuana, it is totally different from smoking it. Vaping weed means you are taking in only vaporized contents.

When you vape, higher concentrates of the cannabinoids are released and due to that, vaping gives off a much stronger effect. 

Most researchers have shown that when users vape marijuana, it produces more concentrations of THC in the blood as well as heavier effects than smoking.

What does it feel like to be high on edibles?

Edibles are great, and they are a much safer but more effective way of ingesting marijuana. This is due to the fact that it goes directly into the bloodstream of the user. Researchers have found out that when marijuana was injected, it produced a weaker effect when compared to smoking and vaping.

But there are countless testimonies of users saying that edibles can cause more effective and most times a much stronger high. We may attribute this to the size of the dose. Most Experts suggest that when weed is being ingested, the Cannabinoids get to your liver faster hence it is broken into a psychoactive compound and the high varies due to the ratio of the cannabinoids in the bloodstream.

When users eat edibles, they can start to feel the effects of being high after about 30-90 minutes, and this type of high stays longer in the body system.

How long does a high last?

How long marijuana lasts in your body depends on certain factors which potency and dose is a member of. Also, the way you take in marijuana can also affect how long your high can get.

When vaping or smoking, you start feeling the effect immediately but you reach a peak at about 30 mins, the high just lasts about 3 hours at most.

Edibles are a different ball game, they don’t come immediately and they can start having effect till after an hour and a half. You reach a peak after 3 hours and edibles high do not last more than a day.

CBD vs. THC highs

THC is a type of cannabinoid and just like CBD, it is found also in the marijuana plant. CBD unlike THC does not give off extreme high and pleasure. But that doesn’t mean it doesn’t affect the endocannabinoid system.

CBD, on the other hand, is used to treat pains, depression, anxiety, and other mental issues too. Weed contains both cannabinoids but weed product contains either of the two only.

Effects of marijuana on your health

Every good thing still has a negative effect and when it comes to marijuana, although it has more positives than negatives, it is still something that you really need to be careful when using recreationally. Depending on if you are a stoner or at the younger side, this is some of the effects of marijuana on your health:

  • It can affect your sleep.
  • It can affect mental health.
  • It is uncomfortable for both respiratory and circulatory health.
  • It can affect both attention spans and memory.
  • It also tempers with the immune system.
  • Mood and digestion can be also be affected by marijuana intake.
