The Smoke Session
Do you like to take hits from a blunt, smoke from a bowl, or toke using a bong? Maybe you like to vape, use tinctures, or consume edibles? Whatever marijuana delivery method you prefer, you are feeling that high. But what should you do now? Look at this list of 10 fascinating 420 activities to improve your cannabis experience.
Meditation can be defined as “techniques that are intended to encourage a heightened state of awareness and focused attention”. Meditation prepares us with a sense of peace, calm, and overall well-being.
It reduces stress by teaching us to transfer our attention on something else. Anyone living with ADHD or other Attention Deficits, can find it difficult to calm the mind and focus.
This can make meditation a challenge for some individuals. Some people find that using some indica strains can help stabilize the brain with a feeling of tranquility, for a mindful and more in-depth spiritual session.
Go outside and smell the fresh air. Take off your shoes, and gently wave the soles of your feet over the soft blades of green grass. Feeling adventurous? Take a hike in the woods. Hug a tree.
Feel the wind in your hair and the sun on your face. Is it a yucky day outside? Go dance in the rain! Catch a snowflake. Nature heals, soothes, and restores our well-being. Whatever climate you live in, whatever season you prefer, go be in nature.
When we feel comfortable and safe in our environment our mental health is improved. Organized and clean spaces help:
- Lower stress & fatigue
- Reduce allergies & asthma symptoms
- Increases safety
- Prevents the spread of germs
- Improves mood
With a marijuana high in full effect, our attention and focus are heightened. We are ready and willing to learn. We are curious and intrigued.
One of the best ways to take advantage of this euphoric state is to educate your mind. Horror documentaries, true crime, spirituality, history, futuristic, whatever topic stimulates your imagination, can elevate your cannabis experience.
Choose your playlist, turn up the volume, and get, “lost”. Sound, vibration, and music are some of the most ancient forms of healing ever recorded. Listening to music while consuming cannabis can induce a euphoric sensation and a feeling of connection.
Marijuana and Yoga go together because both focus on the mind, body, & spirit connection. They reduce stress, decrease anxiety, and improve overall well-being.
We cook, paint, draw, design, sing, play, and express ourselves in so many ways. Everything that we do is art. Studies show that cannabis increases blood flow to the frontal lobe of the brain increasing cerebral activity. This can offer the artist opportunities to express themselves more freely and creatively.
Sleep may sound like a simple task, but for those that struggle with insomnia and getting a restful night’s sleep, it’s a huge deal! Cannabis can also help with pain, inflammation, and restless leg syndrome. If you have found an Indica strain that gives you the relief that you need, then listen to your body. Rest and relax and give yourself the peace that you deserve.
Playing games and consuming cannabis both have the benefit of increasing social interaction. So, what better option is there then to pair the two? Some of the best stoner games to play with your friends to have a good time are:
- 6 Degrees of Kevin Bacon
- I spy
- Chess / Checkers
- Board games
- Video games
- Card games
- Smoking games
- Ping Pong
- Virtual Reality
If you have a consensual partner and are in a safe environment, you may want to try a cannabis sexual experience. A recent study shows that 73% of individuals had an increase in sexual desire, 74% felt an increase in sensitivity to touch, and 65% of participants reported an increase in the intensity of orgasms when consuming marijuana.
Seasoned stoners that share ideas, strategies and techniques are so helpful to others!
