Forget Sixty-Nine When On Cloud Nine
For many adolescents, when marijuana is first tried, they do not feel anything. Often times, it takes 3-5 attempts until a new user feels the high. But when that first high kicks in, it becomes memorable for life. There is nothing like experiencing the first high; of any drug that is.
For many users, the first high from marijuana is extremely pleasant: the perception of time is slowed, appetite is increased, the surroundings become more intriguing to the senses, music is enhanced, touching and feeling are heightened, humor is increased and sexual pleasure is amazing.
Video games and music go together like peanut butter and jelly: you become focused; you feel as if you’re in the game; nothing can distract you and you feel tuned in and in the zone. You enter another world that you don’t want to leave; especially when playing with your close friends and passing joints all night!
Spending time with the opposite sex feels amazing: you become more intimate; more observant of their words and behavior; touching and feeling are enhanced and sexual pleasure is intensified. You sometimes feel like you are one with them and never want to emotionally and physically let go. Forget sixty-nine; you are truly on cloud nine.
Movies under the influence of marijuana make you feel like you are connected with the story: you analyze details that you never would have noticed when sober; you pay attention to the actors’ words and body language in different ways and you sometimes feel like you are part of the movie.
Listening to music can truly be magical while high on marijuana: sounds are enhanced and your connection with the artist is turned up by a notch or two. You don’t want to put your headphones down; the tunes are massaging your ears. Your brain feels so relaxed that you start to feel paralyzed on your couch. Sometimes you may even replay one song 3-5 times in a row. You are in wonderland.
Eating is like a mouth orgasm: your taste buds are on overdrive; every bit of detail from the food entering your mouth is tremendously appreciated; the taste is greatly enhanced and your guilt floats away on a comfy cloud far far away. You become one with the kitchen; it’s your new friend in the house.
As you can see, marijuana is very enjoyable in many domains and it can become very easy for many adolescents and adults to become psychologically addicted. Who wouldn’t appreciate the experiences described above? But they come with a price tag. And that price tag can cost you your mental health.
Many people who experience the above activities while under the influence of marijuana have a hard time coming back down to reality; everything feels less intense and more dull. So they toke up again in order to re-experience the enhanced activities which ultimately brighten their life in the moment.
There is no question about it that marijuana can take you on an orgasmic rollercoaster ride. But are you willing to take the chance and potentially lose your mental health in the process?
