What Does Being “High” On Cannabis Feel Like?

Cannabis is a popular topic these days. Thanks to the cascade of cannabis reform across the globe, many curious individuals are legally able to possess and consume cannabis for the first time in their lives. Getting started with the herb can be a bit daunting. What does being “high” feel like, anyway? To help introduce you to the herb, here’s what you can expect the first time you partake.

What does cannabis feel like?

Cannabis is quite different from alcohol in terms of effect. While all alcohol produces the same general effect, the cannabis experience varies significantly from person to person.

Some may find themselves in fits of giggles while others may find themselves yawning and comfortable on the couch. Others still may feel a little anxious or uneasy.

For the majority of cannabis fans, the herb tends to make people feel pleasant, calm, and relaxed. Here are a few sensations that are common with cannabis:

  • Spacing in and out again
  • Skewed perception of time
  • Easy movements, bodily relaxation
  • Joy, euphoria, contentedness, care-free attitude
  • Drowsiness or increased mental energy
  • Forgetfulness
  • Increased sensory awareness

Unfortunately, there’s a reason many people try the herb and turn away. The overall effects of cannabis can be quite powerful for first-time consumers. Many experienced consumers have developed a tolerance to the primary psychoactive in cannabis, tetrahydrocannabinol (THC).

This tolerance enables consumers to handle the herb without inconvenient changes in cognition.

Cannabis products have varying effects

The way cannabis is consumed can have a large impact on the overall effect of the herb. After smokingvaping, or dabbing, most consumers will feel the effects of the herb within 15 minutes. The overall experience can last two to three hours.

The PAX 3 kit is compatible with both dry herbs and concentrates, an example of a product that gives you a choice of what you want to consume. Details like precision temperature control, available with the Arizer Air II, when vaping also affect the personal high you experience when vaping.

If ingesting orally via an edible, the effects can take as long as two hours to present themselves. The high from edible cannabis can last from four to six hours or longer.

When smoking, vaping, or dabbing, the inhaled cannabinoids are made easily accessible to your brain and respiratory system. Inhaled cannabis tends to have more of an immediate head-centered effect when compared to other consumption methods.

Edibles, in contrast, will produce a much longer and more powerful experience overall. The effects of edibles are often more strongly concentrated in the body, making them great pain management tools.
