Know yourself You know your tolerance, so dose correctly to achieve the desired goal. Be careful when you walk a bit. Remember that it takes a while to take full effect. So stay patient during the process. It's easy to consume too much if you don't wait until the peak of the high. If you are prone to couchlock, reduce your indica consumption and opt for a blend or a sativa.

Drink your juice – Drink your juice Shelby has been a meme for years. If you find yourself dozing off on the couch, grab a sugary soft drink, energy drink, or sweet snack. High-sugar treats are full of glucose, which gives you an insulin and energy boost. Juice, sugar soda, a milkshake are all good.

Eat – As with drinking, it is always better to start with something on your stomach. Eating helps ward off some of the worst effects of weed. Food helps the body process and absorb the chemicals it consumes. And it could prevent cravings when you're already full.

A short walk, a dance to great music or just a change of scenery – living room, kitchen, dining table can have a bigger impact than you might think. Fresh air can make a difference and help you stay more alert.

Speak – Getting your brain to engage in a small conversation, especially something you enjoy, can make a big difference. Find a friend and enjoy a nice conversation while letting your mind wander! Just don't make too many promises while you're excited.

Have a great weekend and enjoy it.
