A short guide to smoking cannabis for the first time




Everybody remembers their first time smoking marijuana. Depending on the circumstances and the quality of the weed, the experience may have been “good” or “bad”. In most cases, a bad first experience can be avoided by implementing some minor planning prior to sparking up.


This guide is aimed at helping you, the newbie stoner, to have a great time lighting up for the first time.


Before We Begin


For many stoners, the first time smoking weed didn’t really get them high. Others got high from the very first puff. It is therefore important to note that you may not get high the first time you light up. If this is the case, then apply the same rules of this guide the “second time” you spark up to ensure that the first time you actually get high, is a pleasant experience.




The first thing you should secure is some good cannabis. Get the highest quality you possibly can get your hands on. If you’re going to get high, it is important that you do it right. Shwag simply will not cut it.


Also, get enough cannabis to make the experience enjoyable.


I would say that at least five grams to get you going. This way you can roll a few joints, pack a few bowls and rip a bong or two if necessary. It should be more than enough to do the trick especially if the quality is up to standards.




The next important thing to consider is “where” you’ll be sparking up. Public places tend to attract police like a bunch of flies to a shit buffet and that would totally be a buzz kill and a horrid first experience. Rather, find a place that is “safe” and under your supervision.


You want to be the person incontrol of your space.


Someone’s house, a cabin or wherever you know that you can get peace and quiet for a while. Get a comfortable area, and set it up.




By setting it up, I refer to having all the necessaries in place.


1. Music

2. Comfortable chilling spots

3. Access to bathroom and kitchen (where applicable)


This way you can relax and have things to do while you’re getting baked. Music is an absolute necessity to set the right mood.




If you’re going to be sparking up by yourself, then you can skip this step. However, for all those who will most probably be sparking up with others, be sure to screen the people first. You don’t want someone going “ape” on you when you’re getting high.


You’re going to be experiencing “new things” and don’t need the negative vibes from anyone else. Always be sure to have someone more experienced with you as well. Especially if you’re all “newbies”.


Having someone with more experience in the room can help keep everyone chill and collected throughout the trip.




Finally, you’ll want to ensure munchies. You will most definitely get hungry and thirsty. If you don’t want to deal with “the outside world”, I’d suggest getting your munchies prepared beforehand. Go out and buy whatever you think will taste good and get lots of drinks.


If you’re truly starving, you can always go the classic stoner route of ordering a pizza. It’s minimal interaction with the outside world and you get food…which is always nice.






Now that you’ve set up the environment, screened the people, secured your munchies and have some dank weed; it’s time to get to smoking. There are many ways to consume marijuana. Most common methods include pipe, blunt, bong, edibles, dabs or joint.


For a first timer, I’d avoid bong hits and possibly dabs. A dab pen perhaps, but avoid dabbing in a bong if it’s your first time ever consuming marijuana. The same goes for edibles and cannabis oil.


The safest bet would be through a pipe or a joint/blunt. This way you can regulate the hits.


Handling it


Now that you’re ready, it’s time to spark up. Just take it slow and go with the flow. Understand that it is impossible for you to overdose on marijuana. If you’re feeling weird, eating can help regulate your high.


If you’re dizzy or anything of the sorts, drink some water and lay down…the sensation will pass shortly.


Mostly, just have fun with it. It’s a very pleasant experience that millions of people enjoy every single day. Music sounds better, conversations get deeper and some random objects can be funny as hell.


Enjoy your trip!
