The state I am in now. For the 5 people who have never gotten high, I will try to explain it. at first, before you are really high, you become really giddy and will laugh at the slightest thing. you also may remember random things and pointlessly share them. When you are high, it feels very much like your dreaming. when you are sober, it may be hard to remember wut happened when you were high, much like how its hard to remember a dream after you wake up. when you are high, your vision gets messed up. some people compare it to watching your vision in a movie theater. for example, if you turned on your tv while high, it may seem like you are sitting in a movie theater watching a movie of yourself turning on a tv in the first person. also, you see things in a different perspective. if you are high enough, your own house can seem completely different! music is also heard in a different perspective. it can seem like the music surrounds you. I like to describe it as being "in the music". Different music can have different effects on you. old school rock can make you trip out or go crazy. rap can make you freestyle better than you ever thought possible. techno can actually sound cool. your balance and coordination are afffected when you are high. you frequently move around and almost fall if you're high enough. simple tasks (like typing this) can be a lot harder when you're high. also watching things can be different, particulary animated things. I strongly recomend watchin the animatrix while high to find out what im talkin about. i tried my best to explain being high, but really the only way to understand it is to get high yourself. so, for you five who have never gotten high, go get lots of weed and smoke it now! Note: once you've been smoking weed for a while, it can be very hard to achieve the state i described. Urban Dictionary

The feeling you get after smoking sweet, sweet Mary Jane. Vaporizers, joints, blunts, bowls, bongs -- it don't matter, 'cause we're high! It's hard to explain if you've never tried weed before, but here it is: 1. Voice Before it really sinks in, everything's just really funny; you're high, they're high, and somehow, that's really funny. Words that never seemed humorous are suddenly the shit and words that never made sense together now make perfect sense. Forgetting things is frequent; you'll be mid-sentence, forget the sentence, struggle to remember, forget that you were trying to remember something, then make a whole new sentence. Some people talk louder without realizing it when they're high; others get quieter. 2. Hearing Music sounds amazing; like it's all around you, coming at you from all directions. Almost like a movie theater. You're so out of it you even think YOU sound good singing. 3. Vision Things may look almost holographic, like they're popping out at you. That's probably because your eyes are mad big. People seem to look a lot hotter than before, and you may also feel like people are watching you.. Trust me, they are. 4. Taste If you're high at all, you'll be hungry. Try not to go too insane -- you'll regret it when you're sober. One thing I noticed is that everything tastes 1000000x better; stronger, I guess. 5. Touch You're incredibly self-aware; you have this warm feeling of security all around you. Cold things may not feel cold or hot things may not feel hot. 6. Behavior People who are normally not affectionate are suddenly all over each other. Stoner hugs are commonplace. You might have deep thoughts or you might think total nonsense. You're often incredibly gullible, which makes it ridiculously easy to trip someone out. Some people have mood swings when they're high; they'll get paranoid or throw a hissy fit over random shit. 7. Balance/Coordination There really isn't any. Holding onto other people isn't just for the affection but to stay off your ass. The ground often feels tilted to the right or left, or the world may seem to spin around you. 8. Memory None of that, either. You'll often leave stuff places and forget where you put it, or think you left something somewhere when it's actually in your hand. It may be hard to remember what you did when you were high once you've sobered up. 9. General Feeling A feeling of content bliss. Time passes really slowly and that's just the way you like it. Nothing can possibly go wrong. You really don't give a damn what's going on around you; the feeling's all encompassing. Zombie invasion? Okay, then. Terrorist bomb? That's great. Apocalypse? Not today, 'cause God loves you tokers! Some other terms are; baked, toked, stoned Urban Dictionary

You know your *high* when you exhibit the following characteristics: 1. you laugh uncontrollably because you realize how high you are and how high everyone else is and how everything else you wouldn't give a second thought about when your sober is now compltely ridicoulous. 2. your vision gets really sensitive and your eyes may feel like they're messed up. don't worry, thats just pressure being relieve from them caused by an excess of blood flow to the cornea and conjuctiva. 3. you find yourself thinking about something deeply introspective (metacognition) and then completely forget what you were thinking about, then spend all your mental energy on trying to remember what you were thinking about, only for you to forget that you were trying to remember something you forgot about and just start to think about something completley different. 4. your sexual desire will increase, and you will talk to anything that you want to engages in sexual intercourse with, with complete disregard for what your actually saying. if you do engage in a sexual act you will find that it will be incredible and every sensation you feel will be better by an exponential margin. 5. music sounds amazing. you will hear every single instrument used, without really listening to it. certain genres of music and certain musicians will make your high feel elevated. music will put your mind into a pensive and contemplative state and you can spend hours engaged in this activity. 6. your apetite will increase and you will find that every piece of food you consume tastes ridiculously amazing. you will not realize how much food you consume until someone tells you that you ate the entire bag of cheetohs, at which point you will look for a bag of doritos or fun-yuns 7. you will aprecciate everything around you and a state of absolute euphoria will encompass your psychological activity. Stress and worry will be reduced by a large amount. 8. confusion sets in and you will find yourself baffled at very elementary problems. (Note** never do you homework or attempt to take a test under the influence of marijuana) heres a tip: get your group of your best friends and some weed over to your back yard. turn on some pink floyd or bone thugs-n-harmony. roll a blunt, (cigar sized marijuana cigarette) pass it around, relax and enjoy the good time your spending with your friends. Urban Dictionary

The most amazing feeling in the world. the first couple times you smoke, you almost feel like you're in a dream, watching the world go on around you. things also seem to be going in slow motion. when you're high, every little thing will seem funny, and you'll laugh till your stomach hurts. even at things that aren't meant to be funny, like someone saying their dog got run over by a tractor. you're eyes get real red and squinty, so make sure you keep a bottle of rhotos or visine on you. you also have th appetite of a wild animal, and you'll eat everything in sight. those munchies never fail. when you're high, you come up with ideas that seem amazing at the time, but then you don't remember them when you're not high. i'm really high right now. all in all, weed is godly. Urban Dictionary

Under the influence of marijuana. Everything seems to slow down, and become better. Music seems much better, and you seem to understand it more. While high people may experience enhanced creativity and artistic skills. A high individual can still function, however he/she will not be crisp. Some people are able to drive as good as normal, because they are aware of the imparement, and are able to control themselves. A high can last from 40 minutes to several hours, depending on the quality, strain, and method of smoking(pipe, joint, blunt, bong, blades, lungs etc.) New users may experience a bad high, panic attacks, very red eyes, and coughing their heads off. Urban Dictionary

Being high is probably one of the funnest things you can do. you simply cannot deny that if you smoke. if you don’t smoke, don’t continue to read this. you will not comprehend anything you are about to read. --- when you are high, your life becomes so much more vulnerable to fun and excitement, the littlest things become too entertaining to describe. --- t.v. is always so much more entertaining when under the influence of marijuana; for example: music videos always seem SO much more amazing. random, annoying t.v. shows that normally seem irritating and scripted, such as maury or jerry springer, all of a sudden seem SO enthralling and intense. you also discover what shows and movies were written by people whom were high. every show has someone who 'looks like someone you know'. you discover that a black women's restriction to beating their boyfriend’s ass is to bounce their knees up and down on their chair real quick and bob their head around a lot and swear and wave their arms. they also repeat sentences or numerous words over and over again. like, 'oh you already know, you already know'. background music in commercials are incredibly fun to dance to. it all sounds like techno for some reason. shows like family guy and movies like half baked finally make SO much sense. matter of fact, so does a lot of other things. --- eating is always much more pleasurable, every food seems exotic and foreign in taste. eating seems to bring down your high though, and makes it seem much shorter. you may discover not eating makes your high seem SO much longer. you consume things you normally never would have, and wonder how you lived without it. every food you can't stop eating is automatically you're legit 'munchie food' --- you recall past memories from your childhood that you hadn't thought about in years. you know you're high when you do random little jigs to yourself. houses you’ve rarely been in are especially fun when you’re high. almost everyone goes through the ‘laughing fit’, where you laugh so hard over absolutely nothing that your insides are completely sore. this is rare after a long time of smoking, though. an intense feeling of confusion inserts into your brain and you find simple things like rainfall to be ridiculously hard to understand and interesting. being your complete self doesn't seem that hard to do anymore. there’s almost always a permanent smile on your face, it’s hard to make it go away, even while your preparing the 4 bags of tostitos to make nachos for 2. you have consistent 'revelations' and try your hardest to explain what you found out. everyone, and everyTHING, you see, ‘knows’ you’re high, from your younger brother who walked by and said ‘what’s up’ to the squirrel you had to pass by on the way back inside. you spray every febreeze, axe can, and perfume bottle you see on everyone and everything you feel smoke smell is evaporating off of. not a lot seems to be bothering you anymore, and tomorrow seems light-years away. you just want to live for the moment. insignificant, diminutive noises, such as birds chirping, seem very loud and unnoticed before that very moment. --- when you are high, music sounds overall godlike. parts or solo's in songs occur, but you've never once heard of them before. being high made you listen. dancing comes as natural as breathing. strobe lights/and or black lights always enhance your dancing mood. --- be careful when amongst parents or other weed-hating people, it may be very obvious you are under the influence of such grand highness. your eyes will be very glossy, almost looking like that of a doll. they are also slightly tinted red, a dead give away. not to mention how tired and squinty they will be. the smell of weed smoke doesn’t last as long as that of a cigarette’s, but it is still always good to spray and maybe use a few eye drops. --- most common terms for weed consist of: ‘pot’ ‘bud’ ‘maryjane’ ‘grass’ ‘trees’ ‘ganja’ and obviously plenty of others --- remember, this fascinating plant came from this earth, and it’d be a tragedy to waste it’s valuable recourses. blaze on! Urban Dictionary

There are many different kinds of highs. I am high right now and this high is just from a couple hits out of a piece. A nice relaxing high that is easy to control and easy to get away with. For me the BEST kind of high is when you smoke 5+ bowls and you can't even remember your name, how to write, spell, or anything. WARNING: Don't smoke too much before school! Or you're screwed. One time I couldn't remember how to write and I couldn't read. I would read a sentence and no matter how hard I tried I couldn't remember it right after I read it. Hokay now another high. An amazing high. Shrooms. The best high of my life. I smoked too, though. But about an hour after the shrooms kicked in. For me when I smoked with it I didn't get paranoid at all and it made it a much more relaxing trip! And I wasn't in the best environment either. In fact it was the worst possible environment I could've been in. Srsly. Some catholic girl's birthday party with a bunch of 'straight edge' goodie goodie kids. (I didn't know it was going to be that kind of party) anyways... yea for shrooms it's a completely different high than from pot. When they first kick in you start 'realizing' everything a lot more. You think about stuff a lot more. And then A LOT more if you smoke too. Seriously my friends called me a philosopher(sp.?) cause I kept on talking about what I was thinking. It was intense stuff, too. So have a pen and paper handy if you do them. Cause i can't remember what I thought of. Now there's ecstasy. At the moment of the high it is the most AMAZING feeling in the world. You're the happiest you've ever been. You could hug your worst enemy and you could talk for hours on end. And when you smoke it makes it an even stronger high. You're in the best mood of your life and the come down begins to start once you realize that you want to always be that happy. When I'm on the come down I honestly don't know if the trip is worth it. But then the last time I rolled I had the worst come down. The time before that I wasn't that bad. Be with friends if you take E. Music is AMAZING. Oh and you lose your appetite. Even if you smoke too. Plan on being not hungry for a couple of days. Food wont look good. Oh but eat ice cream! It's the one food that I can eat easily after taking E. Maybe a shake would be good. You get really thirsty during the trip. So have water. And try not to grind your teeth too much. I've never had a problem with that, though. Oh and if you have a phone you're probably gonna call or text all of your friends telling them how much you miss them and that you want to hang out with them more. And don't watch a movie or T.V. while on it either. Trust me, just don't. Of course there are other drugs, but I think those are the ones most commonly done and other stimulants it's pretty much the same as ecstasy, and acid is pretty much the same as shrooms. I like shrooms better. Just sayin. And they all have different varieties of high. And even with smoking weed there are different levels of a high. After smoking a couple times you will realize this. And there are different highs for different kinds of weed/ shrooms/ e. So you could possibly get a different high almost every time you do whatever : Urban Dictionary

Hard to describe, but basically the feelings that you get after smoking a whole load of weed. After the first few J's you get a bit light-headed and if you keep smoking then everything can seem absoluteley hilarious and set yuo laughing for a good ten minutes, especially funny shit on TV, or funny words like 'Gognay'. After the giggles stage you get unbelievably lazy and physically cant move off the sofa, unless you have the munchies as well when you go and demolish the whole cupboard full of food. When you're high music and film can seem to have a deeper relevance and more meaning to you. You can also spend ages looking at nothing in particular and getting forgetful and confused, which is hilarious. After that inevitably come sleep usually, and you spin out when you put your head down, I also get real paranoid sometimes. SO basically thats what being high is and its fuckin great to be honest. beats getting pissed anyday. Urban Dictionary

The definition of high- why, i am right now. everything seems amazing. you laugh at the most pointless things and feel like you're floating. high is eating a sour starburst and thinking of how its like a waterfall of starbursts. high is when you feel as though your fingers are dancing across the keyboard; that spongebob is the best television show of all time. so if you are reading this and do not know what i'm talking about--get alotta weed and something to smoke it with and have yourself a great time. (:. Urban Dictionary

A feeling of euphoria. It's hard to explain, but basically they best feeling you will ever have. You feel nothing, but goodness. You're not cold or hot or uncomfortable in any way, it is just pure happiness, you feel no pain just a rush. It takes a lot longer to do something and you move really slow but it feels as if things are happening at a faster rate. You rap hella well and laugh hysterically at everything, it seems almost as if you're not really breathing. Something you say seems so thoughtful and deep but really its just meaningless stoner talk. Everything is beautiful and smiling at you. feel like a straw, as if water or some substance is rushing through your entire body and your spinning but it doesn't make you sick you feel like you're twitching but in reality you're not. People laugh at you, however you don't care because you're not actually there. Spend all morning rolling, so you can smoke later. ledge. being in a hella sketch place and just lighting up, not caring about anything, peer pressuring people into it, talking about everything and anything. your smoking instruments are you're babies.you make new friends. you never want to stop, you feel as weed is all you need. you wake up the next day still blazed out of your mind but feel the need to wake and back, and finally, every Kottonmouth Kings, Slightly Stoopid and Expendables song narrates you're fucking lifeeeeeeeee.
