9 Tips For First Time Cannabis Users
If you’re new to cannabis, having fun is the most important thing. But as with any substance, some rules and guidelines can help ensure your first time is a safe and enjoyable experience. So here are some tips for first-time cannabis users—even if you’re trying it for the first time.
Don’t smoke too much.
You may have heard that cannabis is harmless or even an herb. But, while it can be used for medicinal purposes, it’s still a psychoactive drug and not something you want to take lightly.
Cannabis has been proven to affect your mental and physical health adversely. It can cause paranoia and anxiety, especially when consumed in large quantities or combined with alcohol or other substances like prescription drugs. You should also be aware that smoking cannabis releases carbon monoxide into your system, which reduces oxygen to the brain, heart and lungs (1). If you plan on using cannabis regularly, we recommend using edibles instead of smoking them so that there isn’t any risk associated with inhaling carbon monoxide into your system!
Be cautious when mixing cannabis with other drugs.
It’s important to remember that cannabis is a drug, and as such, it can interact with other medications.
When mixing cannabis with alcohol, you may feel more intoxicated than usual. You may experience some of the same side effects as those associated with alcohol intoxication, including:
- Nausea or vomiting
- Slurred speech
- Blurred vision
Please don’t overdo it with edibles.
Edibles are a great way to get high, but they’re also one of the most potent forms of cannabis. So be sure to use caution when eating edibles for the first time, especially if you’re new to smoking.
- Edibles can take up to 2 hours or more before they kick in. You might wait an hour or two after eating them and think nothing’s happening, but that doesn’t mean they aren’t working! Wait at least 4 hours before having another edible or smoking more weed if you’ve eaten an edible recently and then tried smoking again.
- If you feel lightheaded or nauseous after eating an edible, it may be too intense for your tolerance level and body type (for example, some people are more sensitive than others).
- Everyone metabolizes cannabinoids differently: Some people digest food slower than others do—this means that it will take longer for THC from edibles to enter their bloodstreams and thus produce psychoactive effects on the brain and body.
Start with a small dose.
One of the most important things you can do when trying cannabis for the first time is to start with a small dose and then wait to see how it affects you.
If you are unsure how much to consume, it’s best, to begin with a minimal amount of cannabis (less than 1 gram) and wait a few hours before deciding whether or not to take more.
The main reason for this is that you want to get an accurate idea of your tolerance level so that future use will be safe and enjoyable.
Choose the right strain.
When it comes to choosing a strain of cannabis, many factors can help you narrow down your options. One of the most important things to consider is whether or not you want a high or low dose of THC. For example, some people might be looking for something to help them feel relaxed after work, while others are better suited for getting creative and allowing them to focus on the tasks.
All in all, over 100 different types of cannabis strains are available today—and they vary significantly in their cannabinoid profile (the makeup of cannabinoids and terpenes within each strain). So if you’re new to using marijuana, it may take trial and error before finding one that delivers exactly what you’re looking for.
There are several ways to purchase weed online legally:
Consider your surroundings
Before you smoke, ensure you have a safe, comfortable place to use. A friend’s house or apartment is usually best. If you live with your parents and they don’t want cannabis in the house, try to find some other place where you can be alone for a few hours (like a park).
Make sure that you have plenty of time to enjoy your cannabis experience. It can take 10 minutes to an hour or more before its effects kick in, so don’t expect anything immediately after taking your first puff!
If this is your first time smoking weed with friends, consider inviting them over so that someone close by has experience using cannabis and can help guide the session if necessary.
Avoid unsafe environments
- Avoid unsafe environments.
- Avoid alcohol and other drugs.
- Avoid driving or operating heavy machinery while you are under the influence of cannabis.
- Stay away from children and pets until you know how your body will react to the drug and how much is too much for you personally (the side effects can be more robust in some people than others).
- Do not smoke at work or school, especially if your employer or professor has a no-smoking policy, as that could lead to disciplinary action or dismissal.
Beware of dehydration and fatigue.
Cannabis has a reputation for making people feel tired, thirsty and hungry—but it can also make you feel sick, dizzy and anxious. Psychological effects often accompany the physiological effects of cannabis (see the 6th tip). If you’re new to using cannabis and don’t know what these symptoms mean for your body, try asking someone who already knows how their body responds when they use cannabis.
If you experience any of these symptoms after consuming cannabis, take a break from your activity and drink some water or eat something healthy (like fruits or vegetables). If this doesn’t work after half an hour or so, then contact a medical professional immediately -they will be able to tell whether or not it’s safe enough for you to continue consuming more marijuana at that time.”
If you’re not sure, ask.
If you’re not sure what to do, don’t be afraid to ask for help. You can always ask your budtender for advice. They know cannabis and will be happy to help you find the right product for your needs. If you’re still confused after talking with them, ask a friend or family member who has tried cannabis before and has experienced it. If none of these options work for you, then it’s time to get some professional advice! Contacting your doctor is an excellent way to get informed on the ins and outs of using cannabis as well as how it interacts with other medications. Pharmacists are another great resource because they know just as much about medical marijuana as doctors do!
The last option I want to mention here is talking with local health clinics or hospitals about how best to utilize their services when consuming marijuana products such as edibles or tinctures (which contain THC). While most places have strict rules against smoking marijuana indoors—and even outdoors in some parts of Canada!—they provide safe spaces where users can enjoy their favourite strains without fear of getting arrested by police officers patrolling nearby streets looking out for anyone breaking laws prohibiting public consumption,”
The most important thing to remember is that you should start small and go slow.
When you’re first starting, it’s important to remember that the most important thing is to start small and go slow. Don’t be afraid to ask questions if you need more information about how much is too much for your body. It’s also important to consider your surroundings and environment when using cannabis for the first time, especially if it’s going to be outside of a safe environment like your home or apartment. If possible, avoid unsafe environments such as outdoor parties where people may be drinking alcohol or other substances simultaneously with cannabis (or mixing them).
Not only will this help prevent any unwanted side effects from occurring, but it will also allow you to familiarize yourself with how weed affects your body so that later on down the road when you know what works well together, having fun won’t cause any harm!
I hope this list has given you the confidence to go out and try cannabis for the first time. If anything, I would encourage you not to overthink it! There’s no need to be nervous about getting high; remember that everyone goes through their journey in their way, and as long as you stay safe and respectful, everything will be okay. I’m also not going to lie: cannabis is pretty fun. You might end up loving it—and if so, congratulations! Just remember that if things get too intense, there are always options like taking a break or turning down the dosage.
