There’s something magical about getting high and embracing the warm euphoria that goes along with it. The world seems comfortable, your senses are heightened…but you’re not quite sure what to do with yourself once you’re officially good and high. While many people have hobbies that they greatly enjoy while not high, you might be wondering about some activities to do while in the throes of a heady high. Many cannabis consumers simply prefer to become one with the couch, and if that’s you, then more power to you!
But if you’re looking for some non-strenuous activities to further enhance your high, we’ve put together a list of some of the most enjoyable things we’ve found to do while high. Before we get into that, you should have a basic understanding of what kind of high you’re looking for. Check out this list of cannabinoids and their expected effects, as well as how high you’re looking to get.
Which Cannabinoid To Use
There are several federally legal cannabinoids to enjoy that will undoubtedly get you good and toasted. But which one should you choose and what type of high are you looking for? Let’s break the cannabinoids down briefly. Keep in mind the high may differ slightly depending on if you’ve consumed a sativa, indica, or hybrid strain.
- Delta-8 THC. This cannabinoid was one of the first psychoactive cannabinoids to hit the market just a few years ago, and it exploded in popularity. If you’re just starting out on your journey through the world of federally legal compounds, Delta-8 THC offers a much smoother high than traditional marijuana. The high is relaxing and calming, allowing you to simply zen.
- Delta-9 THC. Not to be confused with marijuana, hemp-derived D9 is somewhat stronger than the aforementioned Delta-8 THC. The high can feel a bit intense and can leave you feeling drowsy yet comfortable. Once you’re comfortable with Delta-8 THC, this slightly stronger cannabinoid is certainly next on the list!
- HHC. Created in 1940 to imitate the effects of actual weed, HHC offers an uplifting high that helps spark creativity and often comes with an enhanced sense of humor. HHC can help you feel more focused on completing tasks, making it a great choice for those prone to procrastination.
- THC-O. This particular cannabinoid is completely synthetic, meaning it does not occur naturally in the hemp plant and is created in a scientific lab. The high is richly euphoric and somewhat intense, meaning you might want to get used to how the other three cannabinoids make you feel before trying it.
How High Are You Looking To Get?
Regardless if you’re a proficient cannabis user or a complete newbie to the world of hemp-derived cannabinoids, you’ll want to start off with low doses. There’s no perfect dosage that will work the same across the board, as cannabinoids work differently according to the consumer. You’ll need to experiment a bit with dosages to see what works for you, but here’s a chart that may help you figure out what to expect.
First Time Users/Low Tolerance
Extremely High Tolerance
Indoor Activities To Try
Many cannabis consumers opt to enjoy their preferred cannabinoid in the evening, most likely to help unwind after a long day. However, if it’s evening and you’re looking to get high but don’t want to just veg on the couch, here’s a couple of ideas to do when you’re high.
Listening to Music
Classical music fan? Hardcore metalhead? Snazzy jazz? Regardless of your music tastes, there’s something masterful about hearing noise come together to create a musical masterpiece. The next time you’re high, try putting on some of your favorite songs, ballads, or instrumentals. Close your eyes and drift away in what might be your first-ever mind-blowing ear-gasm. The lilting sounds of keyboard keys being touched, strings being strummed, and drum beats pounding may cause you to fall in love with your favorite songs all over again.
I recently had the amusing experience of reading an article while high for the first time. A short article on someone else’s experience of working out while high instantly became the most articulate piece of literature I’d ever come across. Everything the author described was exactly how I was feeling, somehow perfectly captured in the written word. I almost burst into tears of joy; I was enthralled by the verbiage used to describe an experience I’d never thought to try while high (and probably won’t, but hey, you never know!). If you’re an avid reader with a throbbing passion for words, reading while high is an experience like no other!
Cannabis has the unique ability to make you feel deeply relaxed, comfortable, and euphoric. If you’re prolific with a pencil, paintbrush, charcoal, or any other artistic tool, you may enjoy exploring your creative side while high. The soothing sound of artwork being created may help you dive into artistic realms you’ve yet to experience. Even if you don't consider yourself a skilled painter or sketcher, you may find yourself enjoying the simple task of translating the pictures in your mind onto the blank pad before you.
Writing while high may be a bit tricky since it does require some level of concentration. Typing out your thoughts may cause your fingers to accidentally slip off the keys and make typos, or the words may blur together on the screen. You might feel that typing the words out feels ridiculously slow, as the speed in which you think is faster than you can type, but just be patient and avoid feeling frustrated. If you gravitate more towards journaling and scrapbooking, writing out your thoughts with a pen/pencil on a sheet of paper may help you chronicle your thoughts slowly to ensure you’re writing exactly what you mean. Your words will flow through your mind like water, and the ones you manage to scoop out on paper will be meaningful and memorable.
Nothing quite hits the spot like a movie when you’re couch locked and surrounding by tasty snacks. With so many streaming platforms and cable channels to choose from, you’ll be well on your way to enhancing your high in a matter of minutes! Comedy flicks are especially humorous when you’re high, with fan favorites like Dumb and Dumber, MTV’s Ridiculousness, Horrible Bosses, and so many others. If you’re a die-hard horror fan, be prepared to literally feel like you’ve jumped out of your skin with terrors like Insidious, Sinister, and The Conjuring. Thriller movies like Inception, Donnie Darko, and Fight Club will have you slack-jawed and bug-eyed. Romance movies like The Notebook, A Star Is Born, and Titanic may leave you weeping with emotion overload. Grab your popcorn and soda and get ready to
Finding something to do while high might seem like an easy enough task, but when you’re flying into imaginary clouds in your mind, choosing that particular thing might seem waaayyyy too difficult. Hopefully this list has helped shed some light on things you can try while high, and perhaps inspired you to find other activities as well!
