We all had to start somewhere with smoking, young or old, flower or concentrate, we want to know your story!
One of our employees here at Brothers with Glass let us share their first smoking experience! For the sake of story telling we'll call this person Mary. She used to live in a small town in Idaho; growing up weed was not talked about nearly as much as it is now. It used to be this secret thing people did. It still is in some places of course, but there is so much more of a movement based around it. In this case, it was a pure pressure situation, classic story of the high school friend trying to impress a boy, and Mary just happened to be the tag a long.
Probably the last place you want to go while high is... well high. Mary's friend took her, a few other friends and this boy she was trying to impress to the towns water tower. She reluctantly climbed up behind them, inching their way up the tower. Once they arrived at the top, they all sat down together with their legs dangling off the edge. Out of nowhere came this strange thing, a glass hand pipe! By the time it was passed to Mary she knew there was no way of getting out of this, what was she gonna do? Fly off the water tower! Thoughts were racing through Mary's head, and she had a plan.
"I will just take a tiny bit and act like I'm high!" she thought. Everyone knows it's hard to tell just how your body will react to weed. In Mary's case she was completely zooted right away. Time passed very "slow and mushy" she says. Her friends were ready to climb back, not seeming nearly as high as she was. They tried to coax Mary down to start their descent but the ladder looked "a mile long" Mary just couldn't fathom climbing down that far. She describes the body sensation as "feeling like I was going to float away"
Eventually, they convinced her to begin down the ladder. It was a " numb but nervous" feeling she said. That ladder seemed to take hours to come down from and so did the high. They took her back home and dropped her off, driving off quickly, most likely scared that her parents would find out. Luckily when Mary got inside, no one was home. She had the best idea ever "I want creamed corn" she thought. And ate creamed corn she did, one of the more interesting munchies I've hear of! Like a lot of us, sleeping it off can help when you went a little over your limit. That's exactly what Mary did, drifting off into her endless world of dreams.
Now that you've heard a little from us, it's your turn! We're excited to hear what your first experience with weed was. We would love to hear about the first time you got high and any funny stories to go along with it.
Thanks friends, happy smoking!
