First Time Smoking Weed? Follow Our Top Six Tips

Posted by Puffr ,30th Jan 2024

If you have decided that it’s time to see what all the noise is about surrounding cannabis it’s a good idea not to leap into the deep end right off the bat. A better idea is to establish some ground rules and internalize some of the tips the team at the Puffr wholesale head shop are about to provide for the first time weed smoker. Why? Because thorough preparation will help ensure a positive experience. Let’s get to it, shall we?

Tip 1: Don’t go solo the first time out

Because everything about the experience of getting high will be new territory for you it’s possible you’ll feel a bit strange. This is why it’s always a good idea to smoke with an experienced friend the first time. But it’s not the only reason.

They can also demonstrate the right way to use your custom glass pipes, or whatever other delivery method you’ve chosen. If they’re a good friend they’ll also help regulate your intake so as not to take things too far the first time out.

Tip 2: Don’t be shocked if you don’t get high

Whether it’s a matter of not holding hits long enough or employing poor technique when using a custom bong for the first time not everyone gets high on their initial attempt. Some take it as a sign that herb is not for them. Others resolve to identify what they did wrong and try again.

Think of smoking herb like driving a car. The very first time a person gets behind the wheel they crawl along, afraid of making costly mistakes. Not exactly fun. But after a few lessons they’re tooling along like they own the road with a big grin on their face. Same thing here. If your first experience leaves you uninspired take a breath, relax and try again.

Tip 3: Hydration is your friend

Getting high can be a dehydrating experience. Trying to explain the physiology behind this phenomenon would require more space than we have here, but take our word for it: if you fail to hydrate before, during and after getting high you’re likely to wake up the next morning with desert mouth and a headache.

So before you spark up your first joint or the bong you bought from our wholesale smoke shop make sure to hydrate like an athlete. You’ll be glad you did. Oh, and it’s not a great idea trying to hydrate using beer. First of all it will dull your cannabis experience, second of all it will generate it’s own next-day backlash and third, alcohol based beverages typically do a lousy job providing hydration.

Tip 4: Use quality herb

There are plenty of places around these days where you can legally secure high quality herb, so expend a little effort and take advantage of that fact. Being your first time and all you will likely only need a small amount to produce the desired result, making the whole experience quite cost-effective.

Also, be careful what type of device you use the first time out. A handpipe with a modest-sized bowl is a good choice. So is a joint because, even though it’s a pretty crude way to get high, it’s also self-regulating in that a joint won’t produce the type of monster hits you get from something like a gravity bong.

Tip 5: Keep some snacks on hand

Even if you’ve never smoked weed before you’ve probably heard the term “munchies”. Well the munchies are more than just an urban myth or a term thrown around in stoner movies with no basis in fact. It is a very real phenomenon caused by the THC in marijuana which binds to and activates cannabinoid receptor type 1 (CB1) which, in turn, triggers the appetite.

So it’s a good idea to keep some of your favorite snacks on hand the first time you get high simply because you’ll probably wind up craving them.

Tip 6: Don’t panic if things take an unexpected turn

As we said at the outset if you’ve never been high before it’s all going to be new to you and as a result, you may start to feel uncomfortable or even a bit paranoid. This is one of the biggest reasons why it’s important to have an experienced, trusted friend with you the first time you get high.

If you do start feeling a bit off put the pipe down, take a deep breath and tell your friend you’re not comfortable. They’ll likely try and distract you from your uncomfortable feelings by drawing your attention to something else, maybe turning on the TV. If you need a hug just ask for it. Also, drink plenty of water and remember: the bad feelings will pass shortly and you’ll be fine.

Whether you are looking for a single custom bong to facilitate your first high or you need a reliable supplier of wholesale glass pipes Puffr is your one stop shop.
