A psychedelic high is one of the most sought after effects of cannabis, especially for recreational use. This euphoric or “trippy” feeling is often associated with marijuana, though the substance has an vast array of medical uses. Psychoactive feelings derived from weed occurs at varying degrees. The particular strain, how it was grown, how old the bud is, the method of consumption, and the body’s unique reaction makes an impact on its potential for a head buzz.
