10 Activities To Do Stoned
Listening to good music causes the brain to release dopamine, a feel-good chemical. According to research, people love music for the same reasons they’re drawn to sex, gambling, and food. Much like marijuana, music makes us feel uplifted and connected. As influential and triggering as music already is, the jams only get better when you add some puffs with that beat.
Cannabanoids effect our bodies and heighten our senses. There’s nothing quite like a high swim or float, so just remember to play it safe and have fun. Marijuana makes you attuned to your body in such a special way, activities like swimming are much more enjoyable. During winter, there’s nothing like getting into a hot tub after a long day of skiing and adding to that jacuzzi smoke.
Whether you’re walking through an exhibit or crafting something yourself, everything can be a piece of art when you’re stoned. Head to a local gallery, show, or museum. Art and weed are a vivid and magnetic couple. Don’t limit your medium and explore anything from creative writing, poetry, comedy, painting, the options are endless when it comes to a creative mind. The best thing about art is there isn’t any pressure since everyone interprets art differently. Beauty is difficult to put into words because aesthetics are uniquely intuitive. It’s what makes art so special.
You think everything is funny now? Support a local improv show or comedy club and laugh until it hurts. Comedians will take a high attendee to a drunk heckler anyday.
HIKING & CAMPING
Nature is a constant surprise when you’re stoned. You begin to pay attention to random details on plants, listen more intently to the birds chirping and enjoy the warmth of the sun on your face. Head out with your pals and turn your ordinary hike into an extraordinary exploration. Find a great spot, pitch a tent, make s’mores, and spend the night under the stars TIP: Save the heavier edible consumption for the evening when you’ve already set up your tent.
Many folks insist getting baked before watching a flick is the way to go. Some find it distracting, but most are on board, claiming it makes movies more animated, bright, and generally more engaging.
Our imaginations are free to run wild when we consume marijuana. Reading itself is such a great form of escape that when you combine it with cannabis, can be a really magical experience. Audiobooks are also great when baked. Learn something new, expand your mind, finally listen to that podcast everyone’s been raving about. Allow a story to consume you, the way you just consumed that delicious brownie.
Many everyday users will enjoy a bowl before bed, and a lot of people treat weed as a sedative if they have issues sleeping. This safer and more effective night cap is helpful for those who deal with issues such as insomnia. Fun Fact: When THC degrades over time, it converts to a sedating chemical known as cannabinol, or CBN. This cannabis compound is five times more sedating than THC, though it’s fairly slow to form. Chief Research Officer Rev. Dr. Kymron deCesare of Steep Hill Labs often uses older cannabis for its sedative properties.
ABSOLUTELY NOTHING – MEDITATION
Indica aka IN-DA-COUCH is a beautiful thing. It has the power to couch-lock you into the comfiest, happiest state of euphoria. Sit back and relax; just be present. Watch as your stress levels lower and your energy rises.
Given. Our brains produce their own cannabinoids, lipids that help control our appetite, mood, memory and pain reception. Tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC, produced in marijuana latches on to cannabinoid receptors in our brain, mimicking the same chemicals. Therefore, our neurons are suddenly being activated and promoting hunger when we smoke marijuana. Embrace your inner chef and cook something new TIP: Fill your fridge and pantry with decently healthy foods. That way, when you get the munchies, you can graze consciously. Or make nachos, mmmm nachos.
