Sometimes you need to cover up being high. Maybe you smoked a fat one before going to work, or you’re going to a family function. Everyone ends up in a situation where they need to act sober. This takes a some practice, but with a little will power you can hide your high.
Cover Up The Smell
Cannabis smells delicious, but it’s also a very distinct and noticeable aroma. The first thing you need to do is cover up that dank smell. There’s lots of things that you can do, like using Febreze on your clothes, and chewing some gum. If you know ahead of time that you’re going to be in a situation where you know you’ll need to be acting sober, there are precautions that you can take prior to smoking. Use a chillum aka one hitter instead of a bong. Chillums produce less smoke than larger pieces, so there will be less smell you’ll have to cover up. If you’re smoking a joint, hold the joint downwind and as far away from yourself as you can when you’re not taking a drag.
Use Eye Drops
This is an obvious one for a reason, and that is because it works. Eye drops serve a few useful purposes for stoners, the most useful being that it gets rid of the red eyes that commonly come with getting high. Beginners often use more eye drops than they need. This is wasteful and it can actually increase the redness in your eyes. You only a need a couple drops.
Don’t Think About Being High
Don’t focus on the fact that you are high. This is especially important when you are first going into work, or coming back from a lunch break. Thinking about it too much can lead to paranoia, and you might even end up giving yourself a panic attack. Focus on your job, or whatever it is that you’re supposed to be doing. If you’re with family, focus on enjoying your time with them. Don’t imagine that everyone knows you’re high because chances are, they don’t.
Don’t Talk Too Much
Some people talk a lot more when they’re high. If you’re a person who is typically more of an introvert, then people are going to be suspicious if you’re really social all of a sudden. This is especially important if you’re going to be around your parents, or other people that know you really well. If you’re a person who normally becomes very quiet subsequent to smoking and you’re at work, people will probably think that you’re really focused. You might even get a promotion! Along the same subject, try to avoid laughing too much, as this is a dead giveaway.
Try Not To Eat Too Much
Appearing to have the munchies is also a pretty obvious sign of being high. This is why you should avoid coming back from your lunch break and immediately hitting up the vending machine. This will draw attention to the fact that you were not spending your break eating. Try to resist the temptation to bust into a bag of chips for at least an hour. On the other hand, if you’re doing something like going out to dinner with your parents, chow down. Just make sure not eat all the free bread!
Other than covering up the smell and getting rid of red eyes, much of hiding your high is mental. It takes some practice, but eventually you get really good at it. Learning how to hide your high is just part of the wonderful world of being a stoner. The key is to just concentrate on acting as you normally would sober. Do what you can to not draw attention to yourself.
