How To Get The Best High Out Of Your Weed

In this day and age, you’d be pretty hard-pressed to find someone who doesn’t enjoy a bit of wacky baccy. The Australian Drug Foundation reported that 1 in 3 Australian’s have tried cannabis once in their lives, and those are just the ones telling the truth.

The first few times you sampled some jazz cabbage were transcendent, but now you just collapse into a couch and watch over the top reaction videos until you fall asleep. Wouldn’t it be great if you could chase that fleeting feeling of being young again and experiencing getting absolutely zooted for the first time?

Lucky for you, we’ve compiled a list of things you can do to get the best high out of your weed.


If I were to tell you that a fruit exists that’s not only delicious and healthy but helps weed to kick in quicker and lengthens the duration of a high, you’d probably tell me to pull my gawdamn head out the clouds.

Well, guess what? Mangoes do exist and they’re are actually super beneficial when smoking weed! Mangoes, like cannabis, contain Myrcene, which is responsible for giving mangoes their unique smell. When the myrcene found in mangoes is ingested, it makes cell membranes in the brain more receptive for absorbing the cannabinoids that travel in your marijuana smoke.

So, if you whack down a mango 45-60 minutes before chuffin a cuttla cones, you’ll be one happy camper. 

Use the force, bro

Many smokers swear by the gravity bong, praising its ability to get you really high, really quick with only a small bit of weed. Most of the materials needed for a gravity bong can be found around the house. You really only need two containers, water, tinfoil and some dank kush, then you can sit back and let gravity do the rest of the work.

Mix it up.

Texas A&M psychologist Antonio Cepeda-Benito has spent years studying the development of tolerance surrounding different drugs (Sign me up) and believes that the environment where a drug is taken plays a massive role in its effects.

He argues that if a drug is administered in one context and later in another context, the effects will be distinctly different. Smoking somewhere that you don’t normally smoke can help to increase the high, just make sure you aren’t punching cones in a children’s play park.

Jog on.

Studies have shown that the fabled “Runner’s High” is not caused by a release of endorphins but by the endocannabinoid system. Your body releases cannabinoids to help cope with the stress and pain you’re putting on your body with a 6 am run, almost like it’s asking you to STOP GETTING UP AT 6 AM TO GO RUNNING.

Smoking before exercising will give you a helpful extra dose of naturally occurring cannabinoids. After all, it’s a universal fact that all green stuff is healthy.

Take a break

While it might seem counterproductive when chasing a bigger and better high, taking a break from smoking often improves smoking when you come back to it. As little as a 1-week break allows your body to clean out any remaining THC.

Buy some of that good good, set it aside for a week and have the best welcome home party you can possibly imagine.
