When it comes to using cannabis products, the main focus is on the effects associated with being high. Whether you're smoking for relaxation, a boost in creativity, or for something like pain management, the element you're really homing in on is the Delta-9 THC that's attached to it.
Given the importance of THC, it would make sense on looking for cannabis products with a hefty amount of it to deliver a powerful experience. Having more of a THC presence in the product, however, doesn't necessarily mean that the product is inherently better. Typically, if your body cannot hang with such a heavy high, you risk the risk of being too high and nobody quite likes that feeling.
If you are one of those people that looks at say a Weedsy Infused mini pre-roll with the attached 30+% of THC and scoff at how "weak" it might be in your eyes, this guide is for you. By and large, you can eat and drink things that are high in particular vitamins and terpenes to effectively intensify the cannabis high. Check it out!
What Can I Eat to Intensify My High?
Similar to cannabis, mango naturally produces terpenes that give it both a strong flavor and aroma. Mango in particular is rich in myrcene, a popular terpene that delivers its sedative effects most commonly found in indica strains. Try snacking on this about an hour prior to toking up. You'll find yourself cuddling on the couch looking for a TV show to binge in no time!
Now, we don't think you're one of those people that actively refuses to eat their vegetables. I'm sure by now, as a California-legal stoner that's over the age of 21, you see the importance of factoring in leafly greens to your diet. And if not, maybe the fact that eating a healthy amount of broccoli can absolutely intensify your cannabis high. That's because the vegetable contains high levels of caryophyllene, allowing you to relive some pent up anxiety hovering over you.
3. Nuts, Eggs, & Fish
As much as we love stuffing our faces with eggs, fish, and nuts, there is a particular reason why stoners love snacking on them pre-toke! All three of these foods contain high levels of omega-3 fatty acids, which helps to ease depression and the risk of heart disease. Aside from being incredibly healthy, the omega-3s bind nicely to the cannabinoids typically found in your other green plant. Elevate that high and feel good about it in the process!
4. Sweet Potatoes
As a self-proclaimed potato hater, sweet potatoes are the exception. And it's not just because they taste good, they also elevate our cannabis high! Sweet potatoes are linked to increased production of serotonin, also known as the "feel-good" chemical. The orange vegetable also contains high levels of mood-boosting vitamin B6, which helps regulate emotions. Try snacking on this while smoking to help you enjoy the more heady effects cannabis consistently delivers.
5. Herbs & Spices
While herbs and spices together as a phrase is more famous as KFC's 11 Herbs & Spices, you absolutely do not need to be eating all eleven of those unnamed ingredients to intensify your high. You can keep it simple by eating foods that are seasoned with thyme, sage, and bay leaves. All three of these herbs contain large amounts of pinene which help process cannabinoids into the bloodstream quicker.
What Can I Drink to Intensify My High?
A nice and soothing cup of brewed green or black tea is loaded with a hefty amount of flavonoids and antioxidants. Once the tea is poured, sipped, and the warm liquid penetrates your soul, you can expect your pathways to open up, leaving you ready and willing to accept that monster hit you'll be taking off your favorite strain.
2. Alcohol (in moderation)
Full disclosure - it's actually a lot easier to overdo it on the alcohol, thus leaving you cross faded or worse, just incredibly drunk. So please, be responsible with introducing alcohol in the mix of getting high. That said, with enough moderation, you absolutely can get a little buzzed to elevate your cannabis high. The alcohol binds well to THC molecules in your blood; leaving you feeling both the buzz and the elevation.
The Bottom Line
While you absolutely do not need to intensify your cannabis high, particularly off a Weedsy Infused mini pre-roll, you have the option to! If your body can handle being MORE high, then by all means, go for it! In case you're not super about being more high , a perfectly sized Weedsy should do the trick. Top shelf flower infused with a flavored distillate which is then smothered in kief averages at least 30% THC. We don't know about you but that's already pretty strong.
