If you want to act normal after you reach that cannabis high, there are certain things you can do. It can be quite daunting experience. However, it is possible. No one has a neon light or flashlight placed behind your head to advertise that you have that cannabis high. Moreover, you don’t have to gather around friends when you feel this way. You can recluse yourself and be alone. However, if you want to avoid making others think that something is wrong, it is best to appear sober and less stoned. How do you do this?
Experienced versus Novice Highs
If you are an experienced weed smoker, you may already have mastered all of this. But, for the novice or someone new to smoking weed, that cannabis high is harder to control and it will be more difficult to appear normal. This is true if your friends have never seen you with that cannabis high or have never known you to display certain behaviors. So as not to alarm your friends, it is best to start by not smoking too many joints or consuming a large portion of edibles. Stay within the amount that you are able to control. Let’s look at some additional ways to avoid acting like you have that cannabis high.
What to Avoid When High
Try to avoid getting high around people who are strangers. If you know your eyes are going to turn red after smoking a single joint, then you could either try to smoke half of the joint or put on sunglasses so no one can see your eyes. It might be difficult to control those giggles or acting paranoid. Be sure to experiment with smoking weed when you around people you know. Be sure that those friends are also stoners like yourself because then your stoned behavior will seem normal to them. Your stoner friends will understand that your behavior is just temporary and that is quite normal to act certain ways when you are stoned.
Before you start smoking, prepare what you will do beforehand. This means that you will make sure you have stocked up on chewing gum, eye drops, and air freshener. Be sure to have ‘Sploof’ in your home. It blocks the odor and smoke from dissipation. Shower after you smoke a joint and it gets rid of the odor from your body. You can also change your clothes to avoid anyone smelling weed on you. Brush your teeth and wash your hands after smoking weed. Light scented candles or burn incense to get rid of the odor and to put you in a different mood.
To act normally after that cannabis high, refrain from speaking about how high you feel or you will be giving yourself away. Yes, you can be social, but not overly talkative about your experience. And if you are new at this, you probably need to keep the chatter down as well as the interaction. Keep your conversations short until you get down from the cannabis high. Stay around people with more tolerance of marijuana consumption. If you act silly, it won’t be seen as annoying, but fun instead. Never start an emotional conversation or heated argument. Try not to fidget or act as if you are guilty about something. In most cases, people won’t even notice that you are high. So don’t give them any idea by tipping them off with excessive or abnormal behavior.
If you want to stay away from everyone during your cannabis high, make sure you have a place in your home or away from home that you can go and be alone. By so doing, you can wait until you are sober enough to be around others.
