For a huge number of us, our sweet green friend is more than just a recreational flirt. As global legalization ensues, more and more smokers are opening up about how their daily dose of bud has become a part of their routine for the better.
So the question stands: what is there to know, when you know it all so well?
Whether you smoke regularly to enhance your creative skills, help yourself get to sleep, or just because you damn love it, we've got some tips that might help you improve your overall experience:
1. Always Consider a Quality Check
As much as we hate to say it, you can get some pretty dull bud. If a plant isn't grown in the right conditions by the proper experts, it can result in a poor quality product that'll have lower concentrations of cannabinoid, resulting in a pretty dreary high (or barely one at all). You should always find out as much as you can about the stuff you're buying, but there are a few ways to tell the quality yourself too:
- Coughing a lot without the feeling that you're getting high
- Smoking through your stash quickly
All of the products you'll find in our store come from esteemed growers and undergo extensive quality checks before hitting the shelves. If you're not sure what you're smoking, come visit us to ask any questions and get recommendations on your next steps!
2. Give Your Bud an Upgrade
Sometimes you can have some really great quality product, but it still isn't getting you the high you want. Different strains have different levels of THC, and if you know you're buying high quality green you might want to look into trying strains with a higher potency or considering levelling up your joints with things like concentrates.
If you're not sure where to start here, get in touch with us or ask one of the team in store for advice on different strain.
3. Puff Puff... Pause?
Before you panic, hear us out! We're not suggesting you stop smoking (we really never would), but if you're finding that your highs just aren't the same as they used to be, and you can feel yourself having pretty bland experiences, some studies suggest that taking a break can help give your tolerance to the green stuff a little boost. It can take around a month at least for cannabinoids to clear from your system, but for some of us, a couple days break might do the job in getting us where we need to be.
