6 Problems Only Weed Users Will Understand

The daily life of a marijuana smoker is full of things that may seem weird to non-users. We at Weedy decided to make a list of the six most common problems cannabis users face regularly and to give you some advice on how to deal with these problems.

Indica vs. Sativa

One of the most terrible things a marijuana smoker can possibly do is to consume indica instead of sativa or vice versa. Fortunately, Weedy can help you with that. Remember the most important difference between the two: sativa helps you get more active and productive, indica is a perfect choice for some relaxation. To make sure you will not confuse your favorite indica strain with something else, use our pure indica strains list as a guide.

The fragility of glass pipes

Glass pipes are quite popular among marijuana smokers. These pipes have lots of benefits indeed, but they may cause you problems, too. Their fragility is the biggest one. Once you accidentally drop your glass pipe, you will most likely need to get a new one.

Elusive lighters

And even if you have no problems with your pipe, you have probably had the weird experience when your house is literally loaded with lighters, but when you really need it, you cannot find it, no matter how hard you look for it.

No time to visit a dispensary

One more problem that usually disturbs most cannabis users is that their favorite marijuana dispensaries are closed before 8 PM or even 7 PM. Moreover, some of them do not work 7 days a week, leaving you without a chance to go there on a weekend. Sounds awful, right?

There are two things you can do about that. First, you can always try harder to find some time to go to your favorite dispensary and choose some nice buds. You can even sacrifice your lunch break if it comes to that. But Weedy recommends you to choose the second option—find yourself a better favorite dispensary. You can even use our map to look for a highly regarded dispensary nearby.

Smoking in public

There are moments when you just need to smoke a joint in order to calm yourself, or, alternatively, get more focused and ready to work. And the only problem is that you cannot do this because smoking weed in public is forbidden.

How to solve this problem? In some states, there are cannabis dispensaries with special lounge zones, like in the Harvest Dispensary in San Francisco. Alongside with a large selection of marijuana products, these places offer their customers a chance to spend some time in a friendly atmosphere, surrounded with like-minded people.

If joining a cannabis club is not an option for you, you can always try to replace your joint with a sweet marijuana-infused cookie. Just remember not to overeat, or you will have to face to the next problem on our list.

Do not underestimate the potency of weed edibles

Cannabis-infused edibles are a great way to consume cannabis, especially for medical marijuana users. First of all, you can consume it in public without having any problems with the law. And secondly, this way of consuming marijuana is definitely more delicious and pleasant. The only thing you should always keep in mind is that you need to consume responsibly.

The main trick with cannabis edibles is that they need some time to start getting to you. So, make it nice and slow, and start with as small a serving as you can. For example, ½ of a cookie or a cannabis chocolate bar may be enough for a person with low THC tolerance. Give it some time, usually from 30 to 90 minutes, and then consume more only if the effect is not strong enough for you. And do not fool yourself with the idea of being an experienced smoker because smoking high has nothing to do with edibles high. Read this article to get a better understanding of how to consume weed edibles in a correct, healthy and responsible way.
