Yo, what’s good my fellow stoners? It’s your boy Dan here, and today we’re gonna talk about the difference between being high and being stoned. You might think they’re the same thing, but let me tell you, there’s a whole lot more to it than that.
Now, as you already know, us stoners love giving things crazy names, especially when it comes to weed. We’ve got thousands of different strains and countless slang terms for a joint. But when it comes to describing how weed affects us, there’s even more terminology to keep up with.
Two of the most common terms used to describe the effects of weed are “high” and “stoned.” But even though people use them interchangeably, they actually mean two different things. So let’s break it down.
First off, let me just say that getting high or stoned isn’t the same for everyone. Different strains can affect people in different ways, and the same strain can even affect one person differently depending on various factors.
But generally speaking, getting high is more of a mental experience. If you’re feeling high, you’re likely to feel uplifted, energized, euphoric, inspired, and joyful. It’s like your mind is in overdrive, and you’re feeling all sorts of creative and positive vibes. This sensation typically lasts a few hours depending on how much you smoke.
Now being stoned is a whole different ball game. When you’re stoned, it’s more of a physical experience. You’ll feel deeply relaxed and calm, with a soothing and peaceful sensation taking over your body. You might even feel like you’re glued to your seat or couch because of the infamous “couch-lock” effect. But don’t worry, that just means you’re deeply relaxed and not going anywhere anytime soon.
So why do these two sensations feel so different? Well, it’s all about the strain of weed you’re smoking, my friends. Sativa strains are typically associated with feeling high, while indica strains are known for inducing a stoned feeling. But keep in mind that there are exceptions, and just because a strain is labeled as one or the other doesn’t mean it’ll affect you that way.
But at the end of the day, it’s all about personal preference. Some people love feeling high and getting their creative juices flowing, while others prefer the deep relaxation that comes with being stoned. And honestly, there’s no right or wrong answer.
So next time someone tries to tell you that being high and being stoned are the same thing, you’ll know better. And remember, there’s no one-size-fits-all experience when it comes to weed. Experiment with different strains and find what works best for you. Stay lifted, my friends.
