Marijuana can get you up, but it's up to you how long you stay there.

In my previous article, I talked about a time when I needed more and more marijuana to feel what I used to feel with less marijuana. Everybody has their own relationship with the healing herb, but me personally- I got to the point that I only felt a mild buzz smoking nearly-pure THC concentrate and could not even feel the strongest regular whole bud.
So I started researching ways to keep on getting high and enjoying it, without causing myself problems. I now offer you some tips to help you make the most of marijuana in your life:
• Take a break. Unless your medical needs require that you dose yourself all the time just to keep pain or other symptoms at bay, try not using marijuana every day. Take a few days break until your brain feels unstoned again. This has the added benefit of clearing your cannabinoid receptors so you feel more of your high, and can better judge how strong your weed is if you’re a buyer or grower. If you want to judge the potency and quality of marijuana, you need a clean brain. Three to five days without getting high is a minimum for that. When you smoke again after a period of cessation, your brain is more neutral and fresh, so you can better evaluate the potency and qualities of your marijuana.
• Use different types of marijuana, different forms of it, and different methods of use. Many marijuana lovers sense that the brain habituates to a particular cannabinoid profile when you use the same strain of marijuana over and over. This might mean that your brain loves that strain and is adapted to it beneficially, or it might mean that your brain after a while no longer gives you anything fun when you use that strain. So try using strains that are radically different from the ones you’re used to. If you’re regularly using Kush, try using a pure Sativa, or vice versa. Mix up the types of hydroponics marijuana you grow or use, and see if it improves your ability to feel and enjoy the high.
• If all you ever do is smoke bong hits, try using vaporizers, extracts, tinctures, or marijuana edibles (otherwise known as medibles). Vary how, when and with what you dose yourself.
• Take care of your brain. This is super-important. Preliminary scientific studies show that function and number of cannabinoid receptors may be affected by dietary intake of substances called "Omega-3 fatty acids." Some medical scientist researchers recommend fish oil to rejuvenate or assist people with brain function. My feeling is that hemp seed oil or hulled hemp seeds are a better choice because they have an ideal ratio of Omega fatty acids, including Omega-3. Hulled hemp seeds are delicious, and give you lots of protein and other essential nutrients, along with the Omegas. Some doctors recommend taking DHA, which is a concentrated Omega-3 source.
• Use brain-sharpening and strengthening herbs such as gotu kola and gingko biloba. Also use brain-sharpening supplements such as Vitamin B complex, Phosphatidylserine, Acetyl-L-Carnitine, Alpha Lipoic Acid, and Coenzyme Q10. Be sure to get your supplements from a reliable manufacturer: there are many scams in the vitamins and supplements industry.
• Exercise. When you raise your heart rate via exercise, you stimulate feel-good chemicals that help you feel better overall. Try swimming, dancing, making love, martial arts, running, bicycling, or anything that raises your heart rate to twice its resting rate for twenty minutes or more. It gives you a "natural high" that provides cardiovascular benefits and increases your ability to enjoy life.
• Meditate and do other "spiritual growth" work. Marijuana users often "manage their minds" using marijuana as a way to change their core consciousness, feelings and perceptions. You can also change your consciousness using yoga, meditation, and other “spiritual” tactics. Also try getting into creative arts like dance, photography, painting, sculpting, playing an instrument, singing...anything that gets the right hemisphere of your brain (the creative/emotional side) going will help you feel better overall. Check out this video by renowned physician Dr. Andrew Weil, as he discusses the role of marijuana in "spiritual growth" and other personal improvement work...
• Monitor how you feel when you are high; evalute the role marijuana plays in your life. Just like hydroponics marijuana growers monitor their plants to ensure no problems are happening, you too should monitor your moods, mental acuity, physical strength, ability to handle your obligations and enjoy life’s pleasures, lung condition and other factors to ensure you get the most from your marijuana use. Watch how marijuana makes you feel, and adjust your use patterns so you get great feelings from it more often. Grow strains that give you THC and other cannabinoids in ratios and amounts that most benefit you. And along with monitoring yourself, ask a trusted friend, spouse or other confidante to be honest with you about your marijuana use...just in case you are so high you can't see what's really going on with you.
• Flush your crops. Marijuana and other plants store pollutants and mineral salts that can affect your lungs and general health. Ten days before harvest time, flush your crops to remove these substances.
As I said in my previous article on this topic, everybody’s different. If you can use the strongest marijuana and concentrates (such as hashish or tinctures) all day and night and still have fun with marijuana while also being a good person who functions well and feels great, more power to you. I envy you.
On the other hand, I’ve recommended these tips to many professional hydroponics marijuana growers, medical users, and super-stoners, and all of them have reported it makes them appreciate marijuana more, and staves off or remediates potential problems. I am not a medical doctor, so consult your doctor before you implement any of these strategies. My hope for you is that you have only the most wonderful experiences with the healing cannabis herb.
