Marijuana can have some real health benefits – perhaps you use weed in part to relieve pain or lower your stress levels. However, some health risks can come from using too much marijuana or using it in an unsafe way.  Strains Dispensary is here with some smoking tips to make your session a bit healthier.

Marijuana Safety & Consumption Tips

Start Low, Go Slow

It’s almost always better to start with a low dose of weed, and then take a little more if you need it. This is true if you’re trying weed for the first time or trying out a new product, but it’s also good advice for more experienced marijuana enthusiasts. Any number of factors can affect your high – your mood, how much you’ve eaten, how tired you are. If you start low and go slow, you’ll never be higher than you’d like to be.

Consider Your Diet

Indulging your munchies and tearing into a big bag of chips after a smoke session can be a lot of fun, but if you use marijuana regularly, you should try to keep a healthy diet and drink plenty of water. A poor diet can make you feel more sluggish and lethargic when you get high and can also affect your sleep schedule.

Try Out Edibles

Smoking marijuana is generally less harmful than smoking tobacco, but it’s still not the healthiest way to consume weed. Consider taking some stress off your lungs and experimenting with edibles – there’s plenty to choose from. As a bonus, edibles are odor-free and easy to transport, too.

Avoid Mixing Drugs

A cold beer and a packed bowl may be two of life’s finest pleasures, but consider enjoying them separately. Mixing drugs, even legal ones, can amplify the effects in some unpredictable ways. Keep your substances separate, especially if you need to drive home later or be at work the next day.
