1) Use low grade weed, preferably naturally grown without any chemical added. Just make sure it's not old/dry. (Easier to find, and it's the cheaper kind)
2) If you can, work out a little before smoking, not necessarily breaking a sweat, just enough so some of your natural endorphins (natural chemicals produced and realeased by your own body when you exercise) get released into your bloodstream.
3) Setting: if you're introvert, it helps to take off alone, in a familiar place if possible, while having one of your favorite tunes playing in the background. If extravert, having people around is fine, but again if possible, have one of your fave tunes playing in the background.
4) Dosage: Slow delivery is the key. I never tried a vaporizer but I only heard good things about them, so if you have one, it would be preferable and healthier. Otherwise, your joint/pipe will do the trick. Take one hit, then go walk around and enjoy your world for a little while. Come back, take another hit, walk away and enjoy your world. Come back for another one, etc.. over and over again for as long as you want the trip to last.
5) Start enjoying!! If fear/uneasiness/incessant thinking/paranoia still kinda knocks on the door, shift immediately your focus on your favorite authority figure/role model (Jesus, Bob Marley, Dad, Mom, a special teacher, Pachamama, Buddha, or anybody/anything in your life you love and make you feel super good anytime). Then enjoy your surroundings/time as stuff happens.
- Christians, yes it's okay to experience it once in a while. Just try not to make it a regular habit. Jesus loves you (and me) no matter what we do, remember?
- My background: First tried to smoke when I entered Freshman year at University, from times to times. Those times were a-w-e-s-o-m-e =) Worry free, I was experiencing me as myself and people as they are, whether I was with the rich man or the simple man, and everything made sense. Just pure joy and happiness, either socially or alone.
After 5 years however, the experiences became totally different, almost the opposite of the ones I had when I first started to smoke. It made me sad and made me believe something was wrong with me. But I deep down knew that only something in the way I smoked needed to be tweaked. After 3 more years of struggle/unpleasant trips and trying to find a solution the times I was offered a smoke, I finally came up with those 5 simple - but effective - principles. Please try it and comment if you get a chance.
Thanks brothers Love unto you all. Jah bless
