First Time Smoking Weed: What to Expect

First Time Smoking Weed What to Expect

Want to know what to expect your first time smoking weed? You’ve come to the right place! At Terrabis dispensaries in Missouri, we offer Missouri’s best selection of cannabis products for all kinds of customers. Here is your guide on what to expect your first time smoking marijuana.

First Time Choosing a Cannabis Strain

Your first time choosing a cannabis strain is an exciting adventure! There are three main categories of cannabis strains, hybrid, indica, and sativa.

Hybrid cannabis strains can be a balanced blend between indica and sativa. Most hybrid cannabis strains tend to be either more indica-dominate or more sativa-dominant.

Indica-dominant cannabis strains generally make users feel more relaxed.

Sativa-dominant cannabis strains are better known for having a more uplifting, energizing effect.

Although strain types may indicate potential effects, each strain affects each person differently. You should also consider a strain’s terpene profiles. Terpenes contribute to the effects of marijuana and they too affect each of us differently.

Because cannabis affects us all differently, everyone’s first time smoking cannabis flower will be slightly different. However, most people who share about their first time smoking cannabis do report similar sensations.

How To Enjoy Your First Time Smoking Weed

In the list above, we left out some negative effects of smoking weed for the first time, like anxiety and paranoia. This is because anxiety and paranoia are often a result of consuming too much at once.  For this reason, we recommend a low and slow approach to enjoy your first time smoking marijuana.

Depending on the potency of your cannabis, it might only take 1 to 3 inhales of cannabis smoke to get the desired effect.

Wait at least 15 minutes after your first 1 to 3 inhalations to evaluate how your mind and body feel. The effects of smoking weed can last for a few hours. If you feel good after your first 15 minutes, wait and see how long it takes for the effects to wear off before consuming again.

If you follow these tips for your first time smoking cannabis, you’ll set yourself up for an enjoyable experience. No matter what kind of weed you’re looking for, Terrabis dispensaries in Missouri can help guide you along the way.
