Newbie question. High vs Drunk feeling...

Discussion in 'Marijuana Consumption Q&A' started by orejanai, Oct 10, 2014.

  1. So, since I started smoking a few days ago, I've been asking myself about this. I saw an article with reliable studies that said they're effective with two completely different mechanisms, so they can happen at the same time...blah blah whatever.
    Up until about 3 weeks ago, I was a normal drinker. Not an alcoholic, but I consumed often, so I'm used to that feeling of intoxication. After I smoked my year old Jack Herer, I got super anxious and ponderous, so I'm assuming I smoked too much. Since then, I've smoked less and the high feels more like a haze in the background and my gout pain doesn't go away, but moreso that I'm more inclined to forget that it's there, but there's little to no effect on motor skills...(which is good). haha.
    Here's the gist of my question. I understand that these are two totally different substances and they probably have a different "high". My issue is that I know how much to drink, but I can't figure out if I'm not smoking enough because I feel like I'm at either not enough or too much. How were you able to figure out what your "sweet spot" is, so to speak? I mean, with experience comes knowledge, but there has to be that moment you realize what your sweet spot is. How do you know what that is?
    Sorry, guys. I know this is all over the place. haha. I'd appreciate any advice, though.

  2. I have a very low tolerance for mixing booze and weed. I ususally puke and passout when I mix the two. I just stick with weed.
  3. I sit there with my bong (of whichever toking tool I have that night). I pack a bowl. Smoke it. Wait 10-15 minutes. Not high enough? Pack another and repeat as necessary

    Happy toking!

  4. Even though you generally feel high almost right as you smoke, in about another 5-10, youll be as high as that amount you smoked will get you.
    Also, the environment affects your experience.  Even if you smoke everyday, decent quantities.. by yourself, a single bowl can still make you nice.  Not obilterated, but, you know. nice.
  5. smoke. wait. smoke. wait. until you get where you wanna. thats how it is
  6. Just like drinking, eventually you'll find your sweet spot.

    For alcohol, I'll have about a drink every 30 minutes or so, while cannabis every 10 minutes or so.
  7. I take a dab and then if I forget to take another I come to the conclusion that I am in fact smacked metropolis
