How to Embark on Your First Cannabis Adventure: A Novice's Guide

Are you ready to embark on a quest to discover the wonderful world of cannabis? As a seasoned adventurer, I'm here to share some tips on how to make your first foray a success.

I still remember the first time I tried cannabis. I was on my way to a Dave Mathew's Band concert with my friend's parents, and we decided to stop and smoke a joint in the car. As I went to light it, my bangs fell down across my face and went up like a flash. Luckily, we put it out quickly, but needless to say, I didn't try cannabis again for years and I had a terrible hairdo for months. Looking back, I don't even think I got high that time.

Now, as a seasoned adventurer and I'm here to share some tips on how to make your first foray a success.

Tip #1 - Start Small: Taking the First Step on Your Cannabis Adventure

First things first, don't go blazing through the forest just yet! Like any good adventure, you'll want to start with a small dose to get your bearings. Take it slow and steady, starting with a small amount of flower and gradually working your way up. As we mentioned in our other blog post, flower is the perfect starting point for those new to the quest of cannabis exploration.

Tip #2 - Coughing: The Minor Obstacle on Your Cannabis Quest

Not necessarily a tip, but a heads up. Be prepared for a little bit of coughing. When you're new to smoking cannabis, the smoke can be harsh and cause some irritation in your throat and lungs. But don't let that discourage you! A little bit of coughing is a small price to pay for the adventure that awaits. Take a bunch of small puffs over a big inhale. You don't need to hold it in to get high either - a light inhale and exhale will do the trick.

Tip #3 - Give it Time: Waiting for the Adventure to Begin

Once you've started on your quest, it's important to give it time. Just like any adventure, cannabis can take a little while to take effect. It can take a few minutes for the effects to kick in. So don't rush and consume more if you don't feel the effects right away.

Tip #4 - The High: It's Not as Scary or Dumb as You Think

But don't worry, fellow adventurer, the high from cannabis is not as scary as it may seem. You won't be stumbling around in a daze like a character from a bad movie. Instead, you'll feel a mild buzz that's similar to the feeling you get after having a few beers. You'll be relaxed, happy, and ready to continue on your quest! By the way, here is a list of great movies to check out while stoned!

Tip #5 - Safety First: Navigating Your Cannabis Adventure with Responsibility

Now, now, fellow adventurer, don't get too carried away with your newfound love for cannabis! Remember, just like any adventure, it's important to exercise caution and common sense. Don't go operating any heavy machinery or scaling any treacherous cliffs while under the influence. Make sure you're in a cozy and safe environment where you can truly enjoy the experience. And please, for the love of all that is green, don't mix your cannabis with any other substances. We don't want you to end up on a wild ride that you can't handle. Stay safe, stay smart, and happy exploring!

Here's to a successful first foray into cannabis!

So, start your journey to explore the wonderful world of cannabis with confidence and a sense of adventure. Remember to start small, give it time, and most importantly, have fun! May your quest be full of wonder and discovery.
