Five Strains to Try for Getting that Concert High Experience
Rock out with your pot out. Jam out with your bhang out.
Who’s familiar with the rise of smoke coming from the center of a crowd in front of a stage? The once illegal scent that let everyone know Mary Jane made it that night. I remember too well the days when security would push through the throng, trying to find the culprit that lit up during a performance. The smoker was never caught – because they’d share, and when you share ganja, you make friends fast. It’d be too late though, the weed either smoked or put out in time with no one willing to give up who had it.
Luckily, it’s a bit more obvious and accepted that people are showing up to their favorite performances high. Cannabis can enhance a musical experience, allowing the mind to zone in on the rhythm, lyrics, or dance that perfectly fit the beat and tune. Ever hear of the “concert high” one can get? The hyped-up feeling knowing you’re about to be entranced? The push of the crowd, conversing while smoking, the people with same tastes as you, and the possibility of meeting someone new? It’s exhilarating, and can last days before or after the actual concert takes place.
But ganja can make it all even better. To enhance the concert high experience, there’s five different strains that stand out amongst the crowd.
Green Crack – What can I say? It’s becoming a classic. One of the original “espresso” strains, Green Crack is perfect for a night filled with dancing against strangers, and combating the fatigue you might get with a few drinks in your system. It’s received exceptional reviews across the board, and the mind can stay focused on the music as the body is swept away by the beat.
LSD– It wasn’t my intention for the first two to be named after drugs, but seriously, they’re both great cannabis strains for an exciting night. LSD is renowned for its psychedelic qualities, and will cause you to feel & understand lyrics on a whole new level. You’ll delve deeper into your imagination, and allow the natural concert high to enliven the experience as a whole.
Silver Haze – It’s great for knocking out social anxiety, making the meeting of new people far more enjoyable. If you’re into chatting at the bar or plan on sitting VIP, you can still have the mentality to both enjoy & dance to music while engaging in conversation and social activities.
Rockstar – The best strain if you plan on getting in the mosh pit, standing in front of the speakers, or dancing until the sun comes up. Rockstar is an indica, known for its strong effects of releasing pain from the body. That means reduced ache from bruises, migraines, and over-used muscles. It can enhance the concert high by seemingly slowing time, so every moment of the experience is enjoyed to the fullest. It will keep you from burning out, but be careful as to how much is consumed as too much can cause sleepiness. That’s hardly an issue in a concert venue, however.
Sour Jack – If the concert we’re attending is slightly more elegant, Sour Jack will help pull you into the music, so that you can close your eyes and enjoy the sensation of the notes slipping by. It’s a sativa, so it’s quite cerebral, keeping your experience enlightening.
