what to do while high on weed

Well, here’s my rule of thumb: pretty much anything that I used to do as a little kid (including playing dress-up) is still fun. Especially when I’m high. When I’m riding the green haze (a thing I just made up . you think we can make it catch on?), I like to pull out that adult coloring book and some pens, put on some tunes, and go to town. Or better yet, finger paint.

I find that when I’m high, I’m more easily able to get rid of those pieces that just aren’t me anymore, but that I have been holding onto out of guilt or attachment. Sometimes, it’s a little easier for me to see things as they are when I’m stoned. For me, that perspective is super useful when it comes to figuring out just what my style is right now, rather than what I might think it “should” be.
Of course, it’s different in every city and bar, but I find that going out alone is nothing to be afraid of. People won’t tend to bother me if I look busy scribbling, and if I want to meet new people, my emboldened state helps me make some eye contact.

This might sound like a horrible thing to do anytime, let alone when you’re high; but if you’re the type who sometimes gets a kick out of organization, this can actually be a lot of fun — not to mention, productive.
I’m a big proponent of women doing more stuff out alone. One of my favorite activities to do alone, stoned or otherwise, is to go see live jazz.
Yes, I know this sounds like the worst possible time to try to empty your mind, but luckily, that’s not really what meditation is all about. Mindfulness meditation is more about noticing your own thought patterns as a detached observer. I know that when I’m stoned, I’m often in a good position to do this anyway, since my normal thought patterns are somewhat disrupted and accentuated.
I might also try one of my favorite body image exercises, which is to confront my full body in the mirror while standing up (this is great sober as well, which goes for all of these, obviously). I look at myself in the mirror, and then turn the inward narrative out. I tell myself what I’m feeling. What do I like about what I see? By forcing yourself to say your feelings about your body to your own face, you have the potential to make friends with it and reprogram your inner critic.
I like putting on a chill song, closing my eyes, and simply noticing what thoughts pop into my head. I pull myself back to my breath when I start to wander off with them. I sometimes also light a candle and simply place my attention on the flame, for extra groovy points.

I’m pretty sure this has been a suggestion on every single list I’ve ever written, but hey, there’s a reason.

Smoking weed gets a bad rap. OK, maybe not a bad rap, per se, but it definitely has a reputation as an activity for slackers. Many people picture the average weed smoker as a guy in his underwear, sitting on the couch, watching TV in a daze. But…

From Donkey Kong to DDR, a fun time can be had while high with almost any kind of console or video game. Some of our favorites include: Super Mario, Crash Bandicoot, the oh so classic Mortal Combat, Sonic the Hedgehog, Garage Band and Tetris.

Trips to the local nursery are always fun while high. I get lost looking at all the different plant varieties and trying to pick out my next house plant.
Elevate that third eye and center your body mind and soul with a meditative session.

This one can get a little overwhelming if you don’t have something in mind. The internet could take over very quick if you don’t have a mission. You might be looking at cats one second and the next thing you know, two hours have gone by and now you’re learning about bonsai tree planting. Pintrest boards and the discover section on Instagram can be a black hole of awesomeness as well. Surfers beware.
Check out a local comedy spot for a great high time. Every once in a while it can be a hit or miss but even if the comedian sucks, you’re still high, so you can’t really go wrong here.
