What does it feel like to smoke weed? – UPDATED x2!

Recently I was on Yahoo Answers and I came across this question. The answer I gave was an extremely fun trip down into my memories. I thought I should share it with you all.


Smoking weed is the BEST drug out there for the fact that it does the least harm to you and you can’t really overdose on it.

The first thing you feel is the burn in your lungs as you inhale the smoke. Now bare with me here, because I have smoked way too many times and I paid Very close attention to what it was doing to me. It made the high feel a lot more trippy and fun.

If you pay close attention you can feel the THC in your blood veins traveling around and making you tingle all over your body. I imagined that it was like millions of spiky crystals bouncing off the walls of my blood veins and triggering my nerves. Eventually that feeling fades into numbness due to the fact that your brain is getting too many signals too fast.

At that point your world starts to shrink. Everything outside of the building you are sitting in drops away from your thoughts. Your world now consists of the house you are sitting in. As you ponder this It is only you and the house. Time has dropped away from your thoughts at this point and you are no longer concerned with schedules (this is why it’s so relaxing to take it). I suspect at that point you are among friends in a smoking circle so you realize that there are others in the room and they are talking. You spend the next while trying to keep up with the conversation which you are doing very well in your head because it is pretty much the only thing on your mind at this point. By now, the rest of the house drops away and its just you, your friends and the room you are sitting in.

If you were alone your head would go into kind of an autopilot, You would find a task to occupy your time and you would probably lose yourself in it. You would be surprised how much you can get done when you are high if your brain focuses on the right task. I think that is why people like to get high at dead end jobs. one of the side effects is that it makes you not care whether what you are doing is boring or not, you just know that you need to do it and that’s OK.

Now let’s go through a list of the senses

Sight:
You know how, when you look left and then right with your eyes, you sight just instantly shifts to it’s next destination without focusing on anything in the middle? Well When you are high Your brain tends to notice the full motion of that movement. You may not notice it, but that is what makes you kinda dizzy feeling.

Smell:
Forget this sense unless it is a strong smell. Most of what you will be smelling is the weed you just inhaled. That’s what gives you paranoia about getting caught high. You smell weed everywhere even if no one else can. If you do smell something it will definitely catch your attention though, because now your brain will focus on anything in an instant.

Taste:
Oh Wow! Taste takes on a whole new meaning when your are high. It moves right in with touch. When somebody mentions food it seems to be all your brain can think about. Since your whole body feels numb, your stomach has pretty much lost the feeling of being full, so now your brain is telling you “I need to eat”. The Greatest foods to eat when you are high are anything Crunchy and sweet! Smores are to DIE for. Oreo’s, and popcorn and cereal and chips and crackers and ice-cream. Oh MY!!!! Be forewarned! When you do finally feel full it will not be a pleasant feeling.

Touch:
Not much going on here unless you couple it with taste. You feel the full weight of your body and how your muscles have to work to keep you from being a big pile of mush. So what do you do? You do your best to act like a big pile of mush. It is a very good muscle relaxer.

Hear:
Not much to Say hear either. You don’t pay very much attention to what you are hearing when you are high. However when you do start listening you will wish that you could be in complete silence for once in your life.

In Closing, weed is a very fun drug to try out, but it does come with consequences. You can’t think as clearly when you are on weed and the detox period is not very fun either if you have been regularly smoking. The DTs seem to take the form of depression and anger. You just have to bare with it and let the clouds part by themselves. I noticed that after smoking a lot, I have developed a studder that I didn’t have before and my memory isn’t what it used to be. Keep in mind though I used to drink a lot as well. I don’t any more. And I only recommend mixing smoking and drinking as a one-time-thing. It is a little more dangerous.

I hope you liked this. It is the most I have ever typed in Yahoo answers.

Here is a video from ASAP Science on Youtube that explains the science of Weed.

    I am only a teen and I love smoking weed I love it and it helps me with stress people think its so bad but remember god out it on the world for a reason so LEGALIZE IT BTW I’m high bye my fellow stonerxz

  2. Tamara says:

    I as well love smoking weed, Im at that point where I need it EVERYDAY! and when I don’t have any I feel like I need weed for motivation. I tried quitting and lasted 2 days. Which was HELL. I basicly bitched and snapped for no reason. Weed makes Me a happier person. But would love to quit someday and not spend every bit of my money on it.

  3. I am a veteran smoker and disagree with many things you say about the effects. Such as:

    Smell:
    Forget this sense unless it is a strong smell. Most of what you will be smelling is the weed you just inhaled. That’s what gives you paranoia about getting caught high. You smell weed everywhere even if no one else can. If you do smell something it will definitely catch your attention though, because now your brain will focus on anything in an instant.

    ** I don’t smell weed everywhere. Maybe for a minute or two but then my sense of smell is quite sharp actually.

    Taste:
    The Greatest foods to eat when you are high are anything Crunchy and sweet! Smores are to DIE for. Oreo’s, and popcorn and cereal and chips and crackers and ice-cream. Oh MY!!!! Be forewarned! When you do finally feel full it will not be a pleasant feeling.

    ** The sense of taste is enhanced, so any good food will be that much more appreciated. Give me some quality Thai food any day over sweet junk food.

    Touch:
    Not much going on here unless you couple it with taste.

    ** Completely disagree. The sense of touch is greatly enhanced. MJ is one of the best if not the best aphrodisiacs in existence. Even a good massage becomes an almost religious experience.

    Hear:
    Not much to Say hear either. You don’t pay very much attention to what you are hearing when you are high.

    ** Ah, that must be why MJ is so common in music – both the making of and listening to. Are you kidding me? The sense of hearing is perhaps the most enhanced sense, and music in particular can be experienced in many different (awesome) ways.

    The reason you smell it everywhere because its on your top lip and finger just put cologne on and you’ll be good!!!!!!! Been sober for 2 days cuz ive been broke hit me up for spark outs ohyes and music take you places dont believe me get high lay back and listen to wiz khalifa rowland

  5. journeyman says:

    well i have been high allot of times really, mostly i have been smoking hash, annyways the first things i identify is that my mood changes in a more peacful and relaxing way. then when i close my eyes my thoughts live their own life and i am thinking very fast, manny strange thoughts, and if i think about a sound it will repeat itself manY times, and it starts to get weird in a funny way :D.
    music is a sensation!! many feelings occur to the music, the sounds dont really get much louder but more intense, its hard to explain.
    once i was lying on a couch and listen to music, when i felt like i was sinking in the sofa :p, and i felt like this tingling feeling in my legs, and even got numb in my face. the effects does varYiete from time to time, but it is an experience that i recommend everybody at least one time in their lifes :p ;) enjoy!!

  6. Sal says:

    Where do I buy it from? I wanna try weed but nobody sells it to me. Even my cousins who smoke it, if I ask them to give me some they are like “No! You’re a good girl don’t get into it”. Idiots.

  7. iimclix@gmail.com says:

    bought to light my first joint and smoke it i found like .7 in my grandmas closet so lets see how it goes

  8. john doe says:

    my high was completely different from what everyone else is sayin; time seemed to rewind and fast forward; when i got high i was at a football game and when i looked at the clock in the 3rd quarter there was 3 minutes left about 2 minutes later i looked again and it said 10 minutes left in the 3rd quarter which was weird. i felt more aware and like every thing was in slo-mo.

  9. Weed is different for everyone. Personally, for me, I get the best weed highs, they are the perfect mix of Sativa (Which will make you creative and quite energetic) and Indica (Which is more of a couch-lock lazy high). Basically a ‘regular high’ will last anywhere from 3-5 hours. You’ll DEFINATELY get the munchies and dry mouth so have some good food and a bottle of water near by :D. Watch a cool movie or listen to your favorite music with good headphones/earbuds, music is enhanced greatly when your stoned. Happy toking. :)

    I have updated the Post with a YouTube Video that explains the science behind Smoking Weed. Two minutes that I found very interesting.

  11. Hildieee says:

    I want to try weed but it is not possible to get it in my country / Norway, and I can not travel to another country because I’m not 18 yet.

    • Kat says:

      I tried weed for the first time two nights ago with a few friends and definitely did a bit too much. I had already made my friend aware that I was what we would call a “light weight” on everything else I had tried and that this would more than likely be no different. I was gone about 20 minutes after smoking my second blunt and felt like I was living in a dream. We did it on a roof top and everyone was coaxing me to come down but I was much too terrified to do it. However, after 10 minutes of being yelled at to do it I jumped down onto another friend and landed quite safely. I couldn’t describe the feeling if I wanted to. It’s like you have no take on reality and everything feels surreal. I’d say it feels incredible, just in the worst way possible. I did things I usually wouldn’t not do, probably because I was higher than a kite. Just a tip, don’t go crazy and do a bunch your first time, you’ll regret it. Make sure you are with people you trust, that’s extremely important. Hope this helped

      where do you live in norway? I live all the way up in north norway (finnmark) and I get it easily, you just need to know the right people..

      or take a trip to denmark and visit pusher street in christiana when you turn 18 :p better quality and much cheaper..

  12. Savannah Washington says:

    Thanks for the whole explanation thing I really could use one. So what do you think marajuana tastes like in specific? Is it the over power of the weed that focuses your mind on a favorite flavor or what?

  13. Kedar says:

    For hearing music is a great thing it is enhanced and clear you will hear things you have never heard before. And you start to relize things you wouldnt when you are sober. I love bud

  14. diana says:

    wow i never really smoked i’m 20 but trust me my 3 experience was the worst i was smoking with my bf at first we started smoking it in what he called a bowl i had no idea how to use that, so i asked him better if he could make a blunt biggest mistake ever!! at first i felt fine dizzy a bit but then it hit me so hard that my brain throat ( especially the esophagus glands ) and chest were numb i was literally paranoid lol my bf got the scare of his life the worst part wasn’t my throat but my chest it felt like my lungs were numb i couldn’t eat cause i would choke only liquid was able to go through but it was horrible even now as we speak i still feel a little like that i cant even eat i think its been 12 hours since i last ate any idea on how to make the effects subside ?

  15. Jr Lopez says:

    Smoking weed is the best feeling specialy when your having a bad day you just wanna relax inhale the good stuff and exhale the bullshit…FYI I like smoking during the night it way better than smoking during the day. Shout out all them Stoners Stay up! :)

  16. 42042020 says:

    When I first got high my brain tripped out. I felt as if I was coming in and out of a dream. You just have to relax and know nothing bad is going to happen. Don’t go over board unless you’re used to it or else the experience might be frighting. I did it with my bro and we hotboxed my car. My heart was racing and my legs or anything I focused on just kept twitching so I didn’t get too much sleep. Drank alot of water because my throat was numb but it was so dry I went through 8 bottles of water in 15 minutes and my stomach was full and it truly was an awful feeling. Eventually I just calmed down and realized nothing bad could happen to me on weed and I ended up having a great time. Stay high

  17. jimmyspie says:

    Awesome video.
    I don’t why I do this to myself when I’m sober. I watch and read weed related stuff then cant help myself
    Only got a decent sized nug left but I’m waitin for my new percolator bong to get delivered, should be here any time soon :(

  18. Destinee says:

    DISAGREE.
    Your high will be based on the state of mind you are in. For instance when I was about 13-15 I smoked occasionally. But once I got to about 16 everytime I would smoke, I would FREAK OUT. I’m talking I would beg and plead someone take me to the hospital. But after I turned 18, I started smoking EVERY DAY ALL DAY. And I don’t freak out. The best words anyone has every said to me was “don’t think about the high” focus on everything else just don’t even think you got high. You have to realize weed will not hurt you, there is no way. It will soon become your best friend.

    I’m a physicist and weed makes mind breaks the boundary btw my body and my mind so that it can travel and tour the universe, multiverse…. and gives the theory of everything… btw, I created a computer program that can predict stock market… I was high when I came up with this idea… weed makes your imagination clearer…

    This are my quotes when I was high;

    -God is a mathematician, an artist.
    -To see the universe properly you need to dismiss the idea of a God and you will realise that you’ll come back believing in God.
    -Imagination is the doorway to new knowledge… Accept craziness, embrace it, love it N u will wake up!
    -Geniuses are those who embrace stupidity…
    -The poetry of gorgeous mother nature…
    It’s too long, too emotional, too beautiful to be just a facebook status…
    -You can’t have dance without music, N you can’t have music without dance…
    music is a language of the soul, dance is the interpretation in the physical realm.
    -Let your imagination take control…
    Let your imagination posses you…
    –EVERYTHING IS MEANT TO INSPIRE YOU; forget the pain, focus and isolate the inspiration….
    –You’ll fall when you stop setting levels
    AND SO ON…

    I have designed machines, timetravel machine(artificial wormhole) flying cars, blackhole equations and I did most of this when I was high…

    BTW, I’M a Cambridge University Physicist… that’s enough information… SO I BELIEVE EVERYTHING IN THIS VIDEO BECAUSE I HAVE EXPERIENCED IT MYSELF SO AS MANY PREVIOUS PHYSICISTS LIKE ALBERT EINSTEIN…
