Double Buzz: Mixing Cannabis And Alcohol
Alcohol and weed sounds like a good idea right? For some it is bliss, and others it’s a torment. Here is why, and how you should go about using these two substances at the same time.
When it comes to combining cannabis and alcohol, it can go one of two ways. If you get it right, you will be left with a comfortable double buzz, with both the alcohol and cannabis nicely complementing each other. But if you get it wrong, it can leave you uncomfortably dizzy and nauseated.
We always advocate the responsible use of substances, and the key with this combo is to know your limits and go slow. If you get it right, it can be a pleasant experience, making drinking alcohol on its own a somewhat lackluster experience.
What you are likely to find is that weed multiplies the buzz of alcohol. So, as you can imagine, you don’t want to go knocking the drinks back unless you know what you are doing. This is where many go wrong, simply drinking the same amount of alcohol as they would have if weed wasn’t involved. The best advice is first get high and then take it slow with the booze. Observe how the buzz takes hold, and don’t rush into it. You can always have more, but you can’t have less. Once you know your limits, you’re in for a good buzz.
At the end of the day it is coming down to personal preference. Some people love it, some people hate it. It’s all about trying it out and finding what is right for you. Just remember, toke and drink responsibly, and of course, never drink and drive - smoke and fly!
