1. Avoid Mixing Alcohol and Cannabis
Too much of one thing can be harmful. This especially comes to smoking cannabis and mixing alcohol. Studies show that mixing alcohol and cannabis can intensify THC effects of resulting in a high that may be too strong. This can result in a “bad high” where your body can’t handle the amount of THC being given. On top of that, alcohol itself has its own effects on your body making you dizzier.
This combination can be very dangerous and definitely does not follow safe cannabis smoking practices.
Mixing alcohol and cannabis can result in:
2. Don’t Smoke Cannabis While Driving
Driving under the influence does not mean just driving drunk. Avoid driving while high since cannabis can cause hallucinations and dizziness. This can heavily impair your ability to notice traffic, pedestrians, and your overall surroundings. Driving during the night can be fatal while high, since it is much harder to see signs of traffic. Being easily distracted or disoriented while driving should never be worth the risk. If you notice your driver being high, treat it like they’re texting on their phone.
3. Start Slow, Go Slow
Another safe cannabis practice everyone should follow is to start smoking slowly and don’t rush into smoking a large amount. Smoking a large amount of cannabis in a short period of time can cause your body to react badly to the sudden amount of THC. This can result in sweating and nausea. Your body will most likely also be really relaxed to do anything. This can be dangerous since this can mean your body is starting to lose a sense of its muscles.
When you do realize that you have smoked too much, make sure to rehydrate as much as possible. Trying eating something not too heavy to give your body the proper nutrients it needs to recover. You should also let your friends or people around you know that you’re not feeling too well and ask them to watch over you.
Make sure you know your limit. Like any other substance, knowing how to control yourself is important.
4. Get Your Cannabis Safely
Make sure you get your cannabis from safe and qualified dispensaries. Our partners at MedToursLA are notable and authentic dispensaries to make sure all the products you buy and use are safe. You never want to play around with getting cannabis from a random person on the streets. The product being given to you can be laced with all sorts of dangerous things, especially when someone says it's a “new kind” of cannabis.
Don’t risk your life just because a person offers you a creative type of high.
4. Avoid Becoming Dependent on Cannabis
Unless it’s a medical reason, you shouldn't depend on cannabis every single time you feel stressed. There is a difference when smoking cannabis socially, and when you smoke cannabis addictively. Safe cannabis consumption practices mean that you are not reliant on it every single day. If you are smoking cannabis every day and notice that you can’t stop, make sure you seek medical attention. Cannabis addiction is a real situation and you shouldn’t be ashamed to seek help when your mental health is at risk.
Signs of cannabis addiction can be:
Practicing safe cannabis smoking methods is important. Make sure that you know your limit and not be dependent on it. Having a bad high can ruin your night and can put others in danger.
