A Foreign Feeling
That’s about it. It’s going to be a foreign feeling for you. You’re going to be overwhelmed with a lot of things, especially if you don’t really know anything about THC. Your body is new to it and it might not be able to deal with it perfectly well.
A good reason why you should also ease into THC is so you can understand what pace you’re comfortable with. You won’t have the same pace as everybody so you might as well take it slow and learn on your own.
By trying out the basic strains and learning how you cope with the high that you feel, you’re not going to shock your body and you will slowly develop a routine to help you the next time you decide to smoke some pot.

Easing into THC also means that you shouldn’t really try edibles. Yeah, they’re pretty tempting but these edibles contain stronger THC contents that just give you a really powerful and overwhelming high.

Try a Vape Pen
Vape Pens have been known to give a less intense high than a joint, that’s why this is a better option for you. They won’t hurt your lungs as much as the joints will. And yes, you will feel a little bit uncomfortable during your first time.
These pens are friendlier to first timers and won’t leave you feeling quite overwhelmed with a joint. Just have some really cold water nearby to quench your thirst because you’re bound to feel a bit dry.
What most veterans suggest is that you start with strains that are first-time friendly. Meaning, they don’t give the most intense highs. Let’s face it, your body is new to THC and it will most likely be confused with the new intruder.
