Most cannabis enthusiasts consider what it might mean to take this love for the plant to new heights. It’s only natural to wonder what adding a little extra to your routine might offer, and for many, the answer truly is only great things, assuming you’re ready to take on the challenge. Problems don’t typically arise unless the individual in question isn’t quite prepared for what could come next.

This decision can be terrifying, as it generally involves trying new products that may be in far higher concentrations than anything you’ve experienced before using methods with all new effects, but that’s normal and fear alone doesn’t mean you’re not ready. To help you decide, we’ve compiled a list of questions designed to get in touch with your inner stoner, and where you’re at in this journey of experimentation and fulfillment.

1. Are your regular cannabis products no longer hitting the same?

Have you noticed a certain something missing from your cannabis experiences lately? Are those bong rips or joint hits not quite hitting the way they used to? This happens after a while as your tolerance to cannabinoids builds up to something that can withstand higher concentrations, which means it could just take a bit more than usual to get you feeling the way you used to, with far less effort.

2. Do you feel bored with cannabis?

When you first start out, every single sesh is just as exciting as the last, with a hint of anticipation leading up to each endeavour. It’s fun, invigorating, exotic, enticing, and engaging, but somewhere along the way, the whole thing can start to lose its luster. It could be the routine, the length of time you’ve been doing the same thing, or a change in where you consume, as mature consumers are more likely to spark one up at home instead of going out. No matter what the reason is, this feeling is a good indication you’re ready for something more.

3. Are you excited about the idea of trying new cannabis experiences?

Sure, you’re probably at least a little bit nervous when the thought of trying something new and exciting crosses your mind but does it also make you smile? If the answer is yes, then you’re probably mentally geared up to get into the next big thing!

4. Do you have a high tolerance to cannabis?

If you’re an avid or long-term consumer then chances are pretty good that you’ve built up a tolerance to cannabis, and what this means is that you can take a whole lot more than you used to without ever achieving the same experiences you’d expect in the beginning. Once you’ve reached this next level of “stonerhood,” you’re primed and ready to take on anything that could come your way.

5. Are you comfortable with the effects you currently get from cannabis?


Have you ever been left feeling anxious, nervous, disassociated, nauseous, scared, or uncomfortable from using cannabis products? If so, then is this something you’ve experienced enough to worry about happening again in the near future? If you answered yes, then you might not want to take on any new challenges just yet, because you may be at higher risk of experiencing adverse side effects, and if you’re ramping up that power, it’s only going to make those bad feelings worse. However, if you’re entirely comfortable lavishing in the intoxicating effects, then you’re likely good to go.

6. Do you have the time and money to dedicate to this?

Elevating your cannabis experience is going to come at a cost in terms of time and money because new devices and products aren’t cheap, and a more intense high could last far longer than usual. If you’re ready to make those sacrifices, then this next level shouldn’t be a problem at all for you.

7. Are you willing to take a little risk?

At the end of the day, no matter how good of a candidate you might be for an upgraded cannabis session, there is always a bit of risk that goes with it, because the whole point is to push your limits to heights they’ve never gone before. This could mean you take too much or end up with effects that last longer than hoped. If you’re ready and willing to take that risk, well then, you’re one step closer to being prepared.

8. Can you enlist the help of a friend?

Of course, it’s not always necessary, but it sure does help to have the support of a friend, even if it’s just someone who is willing to show you the ropes or keep you company on this journey.

9. Do you crave more?

Do you really and truly love cannabis and all it has to offer? Are you craving something that takes your mind and body one step higher? Do you feel like you just can’t wait for something more? If you answered yes to all of these questions, then we think you’re off to an excellent start.
