3 Levels of a Marijuana High
Buzzed, High, or Stoned on Weed
Getting high on marijuana has been happening for
Centuries. Here we take a look at what we call the
3 Levels of HIGH on Cannabis. We specify marijuana
for obvious reasons.
Once you have read these descriptions, we hope you'll
agree and see (in your own experience) how we have come
to these accurate conclusions.
Below you will find our description of basically what
happens when you smoke marijuana, and what happens when
you continue to indulge. Some believe there are
more than 3 levels of getting high, and they have every
reason as marijuana affects everyone a little
differently. The apparatus you choose
to smoke your pot in will vary. While this can
influence the rate at which you attain these levels, it
does not negate the fact that you go through each one to
experience the next (no matter how briefly).
"catching a buzz" or the invitation "wanna
catch a buzz?"
(It CAN BE elusive, so you have to
'catch' one when you can)
Limited to taking only two or possibly three
hits (tokes, inhales, etc.)
This is the first level experienced in
getting high on pot. You catch a nice, calm, enjoyable,
floaty, buzz. First time users may claim to be
stoned. This buzz practice is good for the daily user
who begins their day with a buzz (not to be confused
with "wake & bake" - see Stoned). Catching a Buzz
is not enough to get burnt out, and yet you have not
truly reached the Level of High (so to speak). You
can revisit your joint or pipe later and refresh your
buzz by taking a couple more hits. This can be
continued through-out the day with few (if any) ill
Depending upon the potency of your pot, any one of these
effects could be enhanced or non-existent in your
personal experience. It may take only one hit on
the bong with your Hawaiian to catch a buzz, or it could
take more than 10 hits of a joint to catch the same buzz
based upon the quality of your weed and your friends.
These examples take into account the use of good to
excellent grade reefer. A nice buzz can last from
30 minutes to 2 hours. The effects of getting high
on marijuana can be different from one person to the
next. Marijuana is not a physically addictive
"getting high", "let's get high",
This level is generally reached when you smoke a joint
or a couple of bowls with friends. Attainment can
be reached with 4 to 8 hits of decent weed. It
goes beyond a buzz, but you are not stoned either.
When you have continued from the Buzz level, you will
quickly get funnier, and can become internal with your
wild and sporadic thoughts. You may experience
phases of paranoia at this level, I do not. That comes
from (potentially) breaking a law to do it, or having to
cover it up or hide it to begin with (IMO). You
generally feel good, may want to do something fun or
exciting, will like the taste of food and drink, and can
still perform and enjoy your partner sexually. Now
that's a drug! Audio and Video experiences seem
enhanced to you. Focus & creativity are generally
increased with the one exception of ADD users.
People have reported witnessing uncontrollably laughter at
nothing or anything at all. Having them explain
the source of their laughter is futile. Laughing to tears is
possible when paying attention to deep, meaningless
conversation and humor.
Existing addictions like video
games, alcohol, sex or adrenaline rushes of any type
seem magnified and craved for, when high.
Red, sometimes bloodshot eyes can be
experienced while at this level of high (standard eye
drops can mask this appearance). It seems more fun to
you when your friends are NOT high with you - but it's
not fun or funny to them. Great marijuana can keep you
really high for hours with minimum burn out. Some
marijuana can leave you with dry mouth, also referred to
as "cotton mouth".
The Stone. Or
"Let's get stoned", "Getting stoned" or "He's
really stoned" (she's)
When you continue to get high (continue to smoke
after you are already high), you reach a certain plateau
(destination). This Zone is happily referred to by
"Stoned". To some, catching a buzz or getting
high just isn't enough... they like to be stoned.
When a person is stoned, they may exhibit any or
all of the following behaviors;
All of the symptoms of the Buzz and the High are
still present and usually increased when Stoned.
It's also more fun in groups.
Friendly, talkative, sexual, less inhibited,
courageous (?), daring, and sometimes even stupid
(example: the movie JackAss).
often mistaken in photographs for having their eyes
closed, when (in reality) they were really just stoned.
Extreme bouts of snack splurging are a noticeable side
effect of being stoned on marijuana. While eye
drops can help with the red eye experienced when getting
high, they cannot help with the squinty eyes of a
stoner. This often occurs after smoking really
good reefer, or smoking so much Pot that you are glued
to whatever seat you are in (the couch is a fine
example). This squinty-eyed side-effect has no known
cure as of the time of this publishing.
Some individuals may display a
lack of motivation or activity at this level
(lethargic). A burn-out may occur when coming down
from the high (feeling) itself.
Bad weed or extreme burn-out
may cause sleepiness in some at this level.
Some people experience nice body buzz's besides their
cerebral high. Many individuals (but not all), are
NOT recommended to operate heavy equipment, run
machinery or grocery shop in this condition.
