How to Stay Productive While High

Can being high help you be more productive? While most people have an idea that stoners are glued to their couch 24/7, that’s certainly not the case for all. Many people find cannabis helps them with their day-to-day tasks and helps them focus on projects. It actually may be more common for people to use cannabis as a way of getting focused; however, if you aren’t careful, you may subject yourself to the basic stoner stereotype. Here are some things to keep in mind when you want to be productive while high.

Can I be productive while high?

Anyone can be productive while high! The important thing to remember is to pace yourself and have a plan of what you want to accomplish. If you smoke too much and try to start working without a game plan, you could end up getting too high and spending some time on the couch. Or you might end up doing something that’s the opposite of what you wanted to do.

What should I smoke?

That all depends on your preference. It might be easier to get in a productive mode with smaller doses and using equipment that is easier to get the proper dosage. Vaping is the first route you should take when trying to find your groove while high. This will be a trial-and-error process, but once you find your strains you’ll be able to get in the zone. Remember, you can smoke more but you can’t smoke less.

How should I get productive while high?

There are some steps that you should take before you can become fully productive while high:

1. Do your research

As stated above, there’s a lot that goes into being able to get stuff done while you’re high. The task isn’t impossible, but it will take some time before you fully get into the groove and understand the limits of what you can do. The best tasks to start with are basic house chores. They don’t have an exact due date to get everything done, and if you get too high, you can take it easy in the comfort of your own home.

2. Have a plan

Gameplans will be your best friend. Make sure you have a clear idea of what you want to accomplish and break it out into small increments. Just take it one step at a time and you’ll be able to accomplish your goals.

3. Get the doses right… hopefully the first time around

Dosing is one of the most important things to remember when it comes to getting a good balance of being high and being focused. Start small. Even if you’ve done this before strains can hit differently every time you smoke it. A Blue Dream that knocked you out last time you smoked could have you up and running around the next time. If you aren’t feeling high, take another hit from your pen or joint and continually add to your high until you get to a perfect balance of high and productivity. 

Take your time and figure out your favorite way to medicate so you can take on the day. Let’s keep breaking those stoner stereotypes and show people just how much we can get done while blazed.
