Do you have a favourite time to stone? For most stoners, weed hits euphoric high any time. However, we all have weed rituals— a thing you do with weed the same way every time. For me, I hit my joint before bed every single day. That’s my ritual. And I have 5 reasons why you should try it too. But first, let’s address the big question;
When is the best time to smoke weed?
For an avid smoker like me, the answer will always be; “every time I have the weed.” This statement is so true. Sometimes, blunt is the first thing that hits my lips in the morning. I love to take morning blunt in moderation though— its purpose is to jumpstart me and give me laser-focus as I crush figures on my laptop.
However, there is no set time for lighting the joint. It all depends on your priorities. If you have a lot of work to do, and you’re not sure you can handle it when stoned, then you can skip the morning session and hit the joint when you’re done with your work.
Also, it all depends on your yearnings. If you wake up craving weed, it only makes sense that you roll one in the morning. You can begin your morning with silence and reflection; high and motivated— sometimes, weed is the push you need to face your day.
The time to stone is not set on stone. You can have your weed when you need it, just get your priorities right. You don’t want to get stoned throughout the day, when it inhibits your work. Never let your weed-smoking tendencies affect your professional life.
There’s no time that you’ll take good weed and fail to get the feel-good vibes. However, I rarely miss my bedtime spliff. It is a routine I have nurtured over the years, and I am not in the mood to quit. I love my weed, the way it hits my nerves and calms me for a blissful Zzzz! Nothing can come between me and my blunt! If you have never stoned before bed, here are 5 reasons why you should try;
Reasons Why You Should Smoke Weed Before Bed
1. It’s Been A Tiresome Day!
If you thought stoners are lazy people, you need to think again. Stoners are some of the most hardworking people you’ll ever meet. Stoners are ambitious people, and if you are asking why I know this, it’s because I am a stoner and I know what ambition tastes like.
Being ambitious is good, but you need some time to unplug and recharge. The best time to relax as you spliff your worries away is before bed. Weed helps you forget about the expectations you didn’t meet, the challenges that plagued your work, and the people who are inhibiting your progress. These worries are enough to cause you sleepless nights for a whole week. When you smoke right before bed, you clear your mind, calm your nerves and prepare your body for a refreshing night’s sleep.
2. Good Weed Is the Best Reward for Achieving Milestones
You deserve a reward for every milestone you achieve— big or small. If you had spent your whole day working on a project, the fact that you have it figured out warrants a celebration. What better way to reward yourself than to light it up, let it fill your lungs, and elevate your spirit? Some people prefer to toast some wine; I say hit that joint!
3. Oops! Weed Will Always Be Weed
Do I need a reason to smoke weed? No. Weed will always be weed, and stoners will always be stoners. I don’t know about you, but I don’t need to have a reason to smoke.
Hey, if the smoke is getting into your lungs, you don’t owe anybody an explanation. Smoke your weed before bed, and let them know you love yourself too much to deny yourself the pleasures of a good joint just because someone needs to know why you smoke.
4. Meditation Makes You Sleep Like A Baby
If you have been terrorized by insomnia, you won’t need to ask why I smoke my joint before bed. Weed gives me the deepest sleep. After a few puffs, the only thing I think of is “I only love my bed and my mama, I’m sorry.” Lord! Doesn’t it feel good falling asleep in your highness?
5. Sex Tastes Waaay Better…
If you have never had sex when high, you don’t know what you are missing. If you have sex when high, sex will never taste the same again. Weed enriches my sex life in a way only weed can. From the ambiance to your partner, weed will make even the most basically designed bedroom seem like an expensive hotel room. Weed is the best spice for your bedroom acrobatics!
According to Allure, weed can help you evade sex-induced anxiety, and calm your mind for a longer, rewarding sex. But it does more. Weed helps enhance your senses; the hugs, the kisses, and the penetration feel more enhanced when you’re high. Besides, weed if good for concentration, it will keep your mind off other troubles that might affect your sex life negatively.
Also, weed makes you have more frequent sex. According to this Stanford study, people who smoke weed engage in regular sex more than those who don’t. This study that examined 50,000 Americans found a strong correlation between weed-smoking and regular sex. You should try it, and experience the thrills of stoned sex.
How much weed should you smoke every day?
The short answer is, you can smoke as much weed as you can take. You can’t overdose on weed, but you need to know your limits. If you can take weed and still walk home, or just sleep, then you can have some more.
If you need any guidelines on this from a reputable body, here it is;
According Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), for a stoner to succumb to marijuana-induced death, he must consume 20,000 to 30,000 joints in a day. That is like smoking 1500 pounds of weed in 15 minutes— practically impossible even for seasoned stoners like Tommy Chong.
If you can take the spliff further, go ahead. There’s no overdosing on weed, but when you take too much, you might have a bad trip.
In conclusion, the best time to smoke weed is when you have it. But for insomnia’s sake, and good sex, try having your weed before bed.
