    When the smoke from marijuana is inhaled, the THC goes directly to the lungs. Your lungs are lined with millions of alveoli, the tiny air sacs where gas exchange occurs. These alveoli have an enormous surface area -- 90 times greater than that of your skin -- so they make it easy for THC and other compounds to enter the body. Smoke is absorbed by the lungs just seconds after inhaling. The THC then travels up to the brain via blood vessles.

    In your brain, there are groups of cannabinoid receptors concentrated in several different places. High concentrations of cannabinoid receptors exist in the hippocampus, cerebellum and basal ganglia. Cannabinoid receptors are activated by a neurotransmitter called anandamide. Anandamide belongs to a group of chemicals called cannabinoids. THC is also a cannabinoid chemical. THC mimics the actions of anandamide, meaning that THC binds with cannabinoid receptors and activates neurons, which causes adverse effects on the mind and body, AKA getting high.

    the question can take on two meaning depending on the interpretation of the word 'you'. it can mean the person your talking to, or just any person. thats why the internet sucks for the contemporary english language.

    at teh same time, 'why' can be asking for a motive or for the nature of the process

    sober people dont get it and its not their fault. i didnt get it before i tried it. its physically impossible for them to comprehend. but thats the case with most things for everyone, you and me

    To be high!

    Im a lil toasted my self right now...
     
  8. i choose to get high because it is the best experience of my life to date.


    tell your friend i was like him up to about 6 months ago then i thought fuck it and brought some off a friend. i smoked a gram and got soooooooooo high. i went in open minded but was a little scared at first then i started to relax and went with the experience. i was so pissed off that the government had lied to me about this plant.

    my advice to your friend - try it, have a sitter (someone to watch over him), go in open minded and go with the experience.
     
  9. not necessarily a sitter but dont do it alone.
     
  10. i'd only recommend a sitter to make him feel more safe and secure.

    rather be safe than sorry, rather toke than drink.

    some people shoudnt do it their first time alone. a lot of people have no sense, and wouldnt even smoke it properly if they were alone. its not that you should do it for your safety, you should do it simply to have a good experience. its easy for a begginer to be worried about things or get paranoid. having a friend toke with you (not a sitter.. that implies theyre taking care of you like a child.. think of it more as a guide, a mentor) for your first time just means your more likely to do it right and have fun
     
  18. thats what i meant. you don't need a sitter or someone there but it'll make the person feel more secure.
