Yo, what’s up y’all? It’s your boy Dan here and today we’re gonna talk about weed. Now, if you’re someone who’s never smoked or used cannabis before, you might be asking yourself, “What happens when you take a huge amount of weed?”, or “How long does it take for the high to go away?” Well, don’t sweat it fam, I got you covered. Let’s dive into some of the factors that can affect your weed high.
Factors That Affect Your High
First off, let me tell you that how long your high lasts can depend on a bunch of different things. There ain’t no one-size-fits-all answer here. It can vary depending on your metabolism, how you consume cannabis, and other factors like your body weight, genetics, and THC tolerance level. But on average, a cannabis high can last anywhere from 2 to 10 hours.
Type of Weed
So, what kind of weed are you smoking? There’s more than one hundred different chemicals in cannabis plants, including delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) which is the stuff that gets you high. The potency of the weed and how much THC it contains can have an impact on how long the effects last.
Method of Consumption
There are different ways to smoke or consume weed like smoking or vaping it, eating edibles, or using tinctures. Each method can have a different effect on how long your high lasts.
Smoking or Vaping
If you’re smoking or vaping weed, the effects might not last as long as they would with other methods but it hits faster. You can expect to feel something within minutes of smoking or vaping. The effects typically last between 1 to 4 hours depending on your tolerance.
Now dabbing is a little bit different than smoking or vaping. It’s when you inhale vaporized concentrates instead of flowers. Dabbing can get you high for up to 2-4 hours but be careful, it’s super potent and can hit you pretty hard.
Edibles, Pills, and Capsules
When eating edibles or taking pills or capsules, it can take a while for the effects to kick in. It can take between 30 minutes to 2 hours before you start feeling anything. But once it hits, it can last up to 8-12 hours depending on your tolerance.
A tincture is a cannabis extract mixed with liquid that’s meant to be taken under the tongue. The effects start within 15 to 30 minutes and can last up to 24 hours depending on the THC content and your metabolism.
Dosage, Metabolism, and Tolerance Level
The dosage of weed you consume also plays a big role in how long your high lasts. If you take too much, the effects could last longer than usual. Your metabolism also affects how quickly your body processes the weed so those with faster metabolisms might feel the effects faster. Lastly, your tolerance level affects how long the high lasts. New users might feel the effects more strongly than experienced users.
In conclusion, there’s no exact science to predict how long a weed high will last. It depends on various factors like the method of consumption, type of weed, dosage, and your individual metabolism and tolerance level. Just remember that if you’re new to smoking or consuming cannabis, start with low doses until you know how it affects you. Stay safe out there y’all!
