12 ways to get high without smoking weed

1. When You Become so High the Pot Makes You Come Up with All Sorts of Hilarious Nonsense

This story starts with four friends that decided to drive around and enjoy some smokes, as most of the 420-friendly tend to do.

The driver was not much of a marijuana smoker, so they did not partake, but the other three willingly got as high as they wanted to. 5 or 6 bowls later, the three of them were pretty damn baked and decided they wanted to go grab some food. The first thing they did was get In-N-Out (this was California, after all), and their munchies craving was satisfied pretty quickly.

Then they decided it would be a good idea to go back to one of their apartments and all chill-out. Somehow, the conversation developed throughout the evening and resulted in the three of them drawing eyes on their chins and filming themselves lip-syncing to the band Disclosure’s song “Latch,” facing upside down so that it looked as if their chins were little funny people with strange eyes that were singing.

After all that fun ended, they thought it would be brilliant to have an art drawing contest. One of them came up with the theme of “hot-boxing a pea pod” because they kept claiming that they had been like three peas in a hot-boxed pod while they were driving around in the car earlier. The three of them set a timer and began drawing, sharing their end results with one another and, of course, laughing hysterically.

They had all drawn one-another as little Rasta-looking peas, wearing the classic droopy beanie, joint in mouth. About a week later, one of them stumbled upon the drawings and sent the other two a message with a photo of the artwork. This ensued in plenty of endless laughter and a whole lot of confusion as to what exactly went down that night. Also, discovering the filmed videos of the chin lip-syncing performance really solidified that the evening had been a ridiculous, hilarious high mess.

The lesson in this story: smoking that much cannabis can make you do random, creative things you could probably never come up with sober.



Here we are, at the end; hopefully you have a better idea now about how to get super-high, what happens when you get too high, and how to stop being high – how to calm down when high when it feels like you are dying (and, we assure you, you most likely are not). What does being high on weed feel like? Usually mighty nice – there’s a reason that people love pot for reasons other than medical uses, recreational cannabis use is a thing because puffing is fun; sativa weed strains can give you kind of a heady manic buzz, whereas indicas can make you feel so chill that you are too cool for school or anything else and really just wanna curl up on the couch in a blancket burrito with some chips and channel surf the TV, and hybrids are a mix of the two. But sometimes being stoned turns south on you and the high harshes your mellow leaving you feeling dizzy, disoriented, deathly ill and damned nauseous and then you wanna know how to get unhigh as fast as possible.

It helps to know what you are getting yourself into – this is the information age and there is internet access everywhere from your phone to your laptop to even that Alexa thing that sits on your dining room table telling you things like the weather and driving conditions – so seek you some knowledge. We all have once the Rookie syndrome! Dispensaries and provisioning centers have somewhat knowledgeable staff, so feel free to ask questions – just keep in mind that they are trying to sell you stuff, lots of stuff and expensive stuff if they can, it’s exactly their job to do so. Experienced pot peeps are vast reservoirs of knowledge and experience and can tell you things – things like ‘how long do THC pills last, or rather the high from them?’, to which the answer would be 45 minutes to a couple of hours to dissolve in your stomach and get distributed through your blood flow to your brain and body, and the effects last about 2 hours assuming you don’t smoke or consume any more cannabis. What is ‘greening out’? Getting too high from weed, just what we have been discussing this whole time. See how that works? Ask a question, get an answer. Do as much of that as you need to so that you feel confident about your weedy decisions.

Even the best of us fall down sometimes, though and we underestimate the blunt or the medible and we get too freaking high – then what? We covered a lot of ways to kill off your marijuana high: Ibuprofen, or Advil and weed, the weed water cure (hydration, hydration, hydration), eating as well as eating a medible and then take the edge off an edible high, exercising the buzz away, using cannabidiol (CBD) to counteract too much THC, distracting yourself by figuring out what to watch or what to read while high, sleeping the stoned away, taking a cold shower, or maybe just quitting weed altogether – temporarily at least while you come down from being way too high, or maybe permanently if you just can’t handle your pot. If you need the physiological or psychological benefits of weed, then you can get some of the same effects from CBD or hemp oil – but without the psychoactive effects.

And we ended this cautionary blog with some first time smoking weed tips advice for newbies and pros alike: know your weed strains and types, know your equipment, carefully learn how edibles affect you and understand how to make and consume them, discover the difference between medical and recreational weed, familiarize yourself with what the law is wherever you might use marijuana, and learn yourself up and all you can so that you do make good decisions when it comes to the good herb and how to smoke it securely. Wisdom and experience take us from being neophytes and having the rookie syndrome to becoming pot pros.

Even pros may have a bad trip every once in a while that will bring them in a downward spiral, but learn from your marijuana mistakes – or better yet, learn from the mistakes of others! Our goal has not been to discourage your ganja explorations – just to give you a lifeline back when the weedy waters get too deep. We have all been there, you may be there, too, sometime – but refrain from a panic attack while high, if you can; rest assured, all will be well again because there a number of ways to stop being high – or at least slow it down, after all, what goes up must come down and you will too, eventually. If the buzz breaks bad, beat it back down with one of our unstoning tips and emerge from the experience a better, wiser stoner.

6. Ask questions about your questions

When you’re getting frustrated and angry it’s probably because you are losing an argument with reality. So if you think some group of people at work are stressing you out, go into that thought in greater detail.

  • Who are they?
  • Are they really stressing me?
  • Are they stressing themselves?
  • Are they stressing each other?
  • Are they all stressing me equally or are some worse than others?
  • OK are some of them not really purposely stressing me at all?
  • What is stress?
  • How does it feel when I’m stressed?
  • Whose fault is it?
  • Can I live with it?

You will find your negative thoughts are just open loops of generalisations that should be ignored as you have better things to do.

And Now How to get Unstoned

Okay, we’ve detailed some ways of getting too high– certainly, not all, weedy people are endlessly inventive, but assuming you have hit upon a recipe for how to get really high on weed (perhaps using one of our techniques or a combination of the above marijuana methods) then one of two things is going to happen: it’s gonna be a pleasure cruise or a voyage downward spiral to hell. Usually getting high is fun and relaxing, but if it does go south and take the edge, you can get woozy or have a bad weed trip resulting in a panic attack while high.

Without doing anything, you will eventually experience a weed comedown. What is a weed comedown? It simply means no longer feeling high, sometimes however you might feel a little let down or depression, especially after a particularly manic marijuana high. Sometimes a weed comedown involves a slight hangover; the symptoms of an herbal hangover can include nausea, confusion, a headache and extreme dehydration the severity of which will likely vary according to your body mass, metabolism, the amount and kind (or kinds) of pot that you partied hardy with, even the weather can be a factor – hot, muggy days can make a weed hangover far, far worse.

But, if you decide to self care and take you out of hyperspace because the high is making you feel panicky, dizzy, sick or maybe all three at once (we confess to have been there a time or two, but we did obviously live to tell about it), then there are ways to stop being high and bring yourself out of the anxiety plateau and back to life, back to reality. Nothing is magical, there’s no ‘weedstop’ or ‘weed-be-gone’ – unless you’re talking about the weeds in your lawn and garden, but here are some ideas on how to stop being  high when it feels kinda like your high is killing you:

4. When You Just Don’t Realize How Strong the Space Cakes Actually Are

We have all heard of edibles gone a little wrong…

We have all heard of edibles gone a little wrong… Two friends had to learn this the hard way. They received some space cakes from a mutual friend, who claimed that these edibles were super strong. This provider was well-versed in the world of cannabis, a real cannaisseur as some might say, so in reality, these two friends should have really listened to his warning.

They decided to try the treats later that evening, attempting to keep in mind the intense potency. They began by eating between ¼ and ½ a cake each, and knew they needed to wait about an hour to feel the effects kick in.

After about 1 hour and 15 minutes, they were surprised that they had not started feeling any of the high yet, and so they decided that they needed to up the dose a bit because it was not working. They both split the rest of the cake and chose to wait one more hour.

About 5-10 minutes passed when suddenly one of the friends began experiencing a tingling sensation. He quickly asked the other if he too was feeling this sensation, and the friend exclaimed, “yeahhhh, I feel it too”.

As 10 more minutes passed, the high suddenly got way more intense, becoming more extreme as time continued to pass. At some point, the friends just heard buzzing and their vision became blurry, which really freaked them out, so they started pacing around.

One friend asked the other, “what are we going to do once the full effects hit in an hour?”

Suddenly the other friend’s jaw dropped to the ground and he began walking in quick circles for a few minutes worrying, finally saying, “what are we going to do!?”

The other friend muscled up some courage and they both decided they were just going to have to make the best out of the situation, because they had done this to themselves and they had even been forewarned.

They chose to just try and take it easy, so they put on a movie. They both laid in bed and felt as if they were paralyzed and not able to move, when suddenly the TV began to appear as if it was in 3D, popping out of the screen with the images hitting them in the face. They laid there for 8 hours unable to move or talk until finally, both fell asleep.

The lesson in all of this? Take it easy with the cakes, boys and girls — unless you’re ready to get extremely baked!

What is the Healthiest Way To Smoke Weed?

For many medical marijuana patients or recreational adult-users, smoking weed is the only way they know to administer their medicine. If smoking is your preferred method, there are some things that you can do to minimize the negative effects of smoking.

  1. Use Water Pipes — using a bong or bubbler to smoke pot can filter out some of the carcinogens present in marijuana smoke, cooling down the temperature causing less heat damage to the lungs. For additional relief, try dropping a few ice cubes inside your bong. 
  2. Use Glass Pipes — using glassware to smoke your weed is definitely preferable over some other materials, such as aluminum or plastic, which can pass along some unwanted byproducts at high temperatures.
  3. Keep Your Gear Clean –You can cut down on the chance of inhaling carcinogens by keeping your smoking gear nice and clean, regularly applying isopropyl alcohol to clear any resin or otherwise.

How Many Edibles Do You Need To Eat?

Knowing how much weed to use is about finding your own personal boundaries. With smoking, the effects are felt very quickly so you usually know when you’ve had enough. Edibles are a different story which is why you have to be very careful with them. The effects from edibles are typically felt 45 minutes – 2 hours after it’s eaten. This means you could take too much and not even know it until the rush hits you.

So, how much edibles is good then? The state of Colorado recommends a 10mg dosage for first-time users, and I agree. Edibles hit everyone differently. I personally don’t feel anything on 10mg, but I have a friend who can get lit off the same amount. This is why you have to find your own personal boundary. Make sure to wait at least 2 hours before eating more edibles, but ideally wait until the next day to up the dosage.

If you’re eating homemade edibles you may run into some problems since there really isn’t any way to know the potency of the edible. Have someone experienced try them first to find out their strength. Also, take a very small amount (think one bite or less) if you are unsure about the potency.

As a regular user, I typically take between 50-100mg at a time depending on how high I want to get. Let us know how much you normally eat, smoke, or vape in the comments.

12. People watching

Sit in a cafe behind the window or on a bench in a public place and watch the people go by. Look for the kindness in their faces. You’ll be amazed that the world is actually full of beautiful, kind people!

So what do you think?

Damn my superstition! I was going to add “have sex” but that would have made it 13!

What do you think about these ways to feel good without drugs? Do they work for you or do you have suggestions of your own?
