Prior to legalization, it was essential for many cannabis users to cover up any sign they were high. Now, I find it is out of courtesy and respect for non-cannabis users. The strong, skunkyscent of some strains may raise some eyebrows and the red eyes might draw some attention. Here are five tips to help you not look like you’re stoned on your meds.
Hide those eyes
On a bright and sunny morning or afternoon, you can get away with wearing your shades. Once it starts getting dark, you’ll have to put those sunglasses away. Some people prefer a baseball cap or some sort of hat which helps cover the eyes. I would suggest not wearing both a hat and sunglasses which may hint that you’re hiding something.
Eye drops and dry mouth
One common side effect for cannabis users is the dreaded red eyes. I get dry eyes without smoking marijuana, so these faux tears are a must have. Within minutes, you’re eyes feel relieved and look clear. Not only are you’re eyes getting dry, but how about your mouth. Keep a water bottle with you to keep hydrated.
Don’t overthink, or over-talk
When we know we’ve just consumed marijuana, there’s a common error of overthinking or becoming overly talkative. It’s a nervous tick that we can be obviously to. If you’re focussed on not looking like you’re high, you’ll look high. Ease up and relax a little. Focus on what is important. Don’t feel obligated to engage in long conversations.
If you’re at home and you’re going somewhere, but you don’t want to look high, take a shower. A quick wash of the face usually is enough to freshen up. Try putting on some deodorant or spray before you wall out the door. Beware that you don’t bathe in your spray or perfume. This can be irritating or even offensive for some people.
Before consuming marijuana, it is wise to consider what Kind of day you have planned. Prioritize your day and choose to smoke at times which give you a couple hours of downtime. The best time to smoke is in the evening or before bed. To avoid the scent, vaping is a great choice. Grape Ape ( sugar wax ) and Blueberry Kush (shatter) are wonderfully flavourful; a smart choice for reusable vape pens. Also take a look at our light and discreet disposable vape pens.
