How many times did you “fall” after a few drags from a joint, or felt like that bong hit was too strong for you to handle? You may be surprised, but you’re not the only one.
The story I’ll tell you today is a must for every smoker, a beginner, a pro and mainly everyone who’s not getting medical cannabis.
It was another night with the guys; Playstation, a few joints, a bong passing around and lots and lots of munchies.
You probably figured out that we’re not beginners at smoking weed, we’ve been through alot with it, in Israel as well as abroad.
We made a nice mix of weed and tobacco, with a ratio of something like 50\50 or maybe even 60\40 in the weed’s favor. Yes, back then I was still smoking it with tobacco, today I only vape, pure.clean weed, no smoke and extremely tasty, with my vaporizer.
I already experienced strong highs in my past, in the sense of “I wanna sleep, I can’t move”, but this time something different happened, something stressful and unusual that can raise a lot of questions about ways of Cannabis consumption.
So I took a few drags from the joint, and was still pretty sober, then came “Napoleon”, our beloved bong, I took a big hit, as usual, and then it happened, I felt a little weird, but still took another drag from a joint that was passing around.
My head started working overtime, I stopped communicating with the friends around me, “I usually do like 4 hits and do ok, what’s happened to me this time?”, I told my friend who was sitting next to me. I got up and went to the sofa to lie down and relax because I’m such a big “expert”, and know how to take care of myself and cool myself down, everything else is nonsense in these moments.
I lied down on the couch, closed my eyes, and then it started, I felt that I’m beginning to sweat, and that my head is just spinning in some white background, my friends brought me water, it felt like if I won’t vomit this feeling won’t leave me anytime soon, so I ran and puked, just like with alcohol, only anything that came out of me was water and maybe a little bit of bong dirt.
A minute later I was back from the dead, washed my face and realized that everything is fine.
I didn’t continue smoking right away, I waited a bit and let myself chill out.
I don’t know if it’s got anything to do with it, but for someone who’s not smoking cigarettes, I stopped mixing my weed with tobacco a short time after this incident. I realized that this mix is the reason for making me feel ill like that, I rolled myself a clean, tobaccoless joint, and everything was a-ok. It’s like that say, “A pink world is best seen through red eyes”.
Today I vape my weed, my vaporizer has a “bubbler” device that gives it a bong-like effect, only less harsh.
To conclude, I can tell you a few things:
Smoke for the fun, don’t exaggerate, and if you already did exaggerate, take it as a corrective experience, an experience that will guide you in the right direction of getting high in the most healthy, efficient and unharming way.
It is true that people who consume cannabis daily, sometimes miss these “slaps to the face”, these highs that “kill” you, but they know it’s just nostalgia. If you ever get this type of high, remember not to panic, and drink something sweet, maybe some orange juice, that usually seems to help.
