Are you a virgin stoner, or have you just smoked weed once but not again because you didn’t like it? If it’s the latter, then we have some good news for you! The next time you smoke weed, it will be different. And the time after that too. 

Because when you smoke weed for the first time, your brain goes through a process of unlearning everything society has taught us about cannabis and re-learning what a natural reaction to this plant actually is. 

But don’t worry – that doesn’t mean all those negative things you heard about weed are true. In fact, there are so many benefits of smoking weed when you first try it that we won’t even list them all here. Read on to find out more…

What Happens When You Smoke Weed for the First Time?

When you smoke weed, you inhale its active chemical compounds (namely cannabinoids and terpenes) into your lungs. The blood goes through the alveoli in the lungs and sucks up the cannabinoids, taking them straight to the brain.

The brain has receptors designed to fit cannabinoids like a lock and key, the cannabinoids just flow right into the brain without needing to go through the liver. As soon as you realize that pot is not what society made it out to be, you’ll be glad that you tried it!

Weed Makes You Feel Happy!

The first thing you’ll notice when you smoke weed for the first time is that you feel happy. Not just a little happy – we’re talking about the kind of happy that makes you want to laugh out loud and dance around the room. 

Marijuana actually contains chemical compounds that our brains produce when we are happy, so it makes sense that smoking weed causes this same reaction! And while you might be worried that you’re addicted to weed when you feel that way, there is such a thing as weed addiction

It’s called “marijuana use disorder” and it’s very different from “being addicted to weed.” When you are addicted to weed, you feel like you can’t quit – you think about it all the time, and it’s hard for you to go a few hours without smoking it. 

But if you’ve smoked weed and you feel happy – that’s a great thing! It means you’re getting those happy chemicals in your brain, which are chemicals that help you deal with stress and make you a happier person overall.

Weed Makes You feel Out of Body and in a Trance

Have you ever listened to a song that you love so much that it makes you feel like you’re in a trance? It’s like you’re outside your own body and someone else is controlling your movements. Well, this is very similar to how smoking weed for the first time makes you feel. 

When you smoke weed, you will notice that your thoughts feel different. Instead of racing forward, they’ll slow down, and you might feel like you’re in a trance. This is because THC – the main chemical in weed that makes you feel high – makes your brain process information more slowly. While this is happening, your senses will be heightened, so you’ll notice more about your surroundings. 

And you’ll feel more emotion, but it will be different from happiness – it will be like you’re consuming every part of your life and all of the feelings come together in one big burst.

Weed Smells Good and Tastes Even Better!

When you smoke weed for the first time, you’ll notice that it has a very strong scent. But if you like the smell of weed, then this is a very good thing! Because if you don’t like the smell of weed, it means that you won’t like the way it tastes either. 

Weed actually has a very earthy, herb-like flavor, and there are some strains that actually taste more like berries than anything. When you smoke weed for the first time, you’ll most likely want to eat something. This is because your taste buds are heightened when you smoke weed, so the food tastes even better than it would normally.

If you’ve never tried eating something when you’re high, make sure you pick something savory – like a slice of pizza or some mac and cheese. If you go for something sweet and savory, you’ll get the best of both worlds!


Weed is a plant that has been in and out of the public eye for decades now. Many people have very strong opinions about it – both for and against. However, when you smoke weed for the first time, you’ll notice that it has a very different effect on people than you might expect.

You’ll notice that it helps you relax, enhances your senses, and makes you feel happy. Most importantly, you’ll notice that it is not the demon that society has made it out to be. We hope you’ve enjoyed reading this article and that it’s helped you understand what happens when you smoke weed for the first time.
