I've only smoked a few times, so I have a few questions for more experienced users.
Eating pot edibles gets you high, so would eating just straight up pot get you high as well? More or less high?
No. Eating weed won't get you high. I'm a pretty big noob when it comes to edibles, but I guess it's the heat and the fact that THC is fat-soluble that allows it to get you high after eating it.
In what way is getting high from edibles different from getting high smoking? Intensity, length of time high, experience of high, etc.
Edibles vary. There's stuff like brownies, which get absorbed in your stomach; and there's stuff like gum and candy, which gets absorbed orally. Depending on a variety of other factors, intensity and length of the high will also vary. In my experience with edibles, which honestly isn't much, the high lasts a lot longer and is a bit more intense. Even when making brownies with sativa, a type of weed that produces more of a head high than a body high, I've found myself stuck to the couch for hours, with my head feeling like a block of wood.
Like I said though, I'm an edibles noob. I don't live on the west coast or anywhere near a dispensary, and I don't get herb in weight anymore, so I'm rarely found using up a bunch of stuff to play around in the kitchen.
Also, for a novice, I'm willing to bet that most highs will be the same, disregarding some noticeable difference in intensity. It's not until you've been smoking for a while that you'll begin to pick up on subtle differences.
What has, in your experience, been the most efficient way for you to get high? For me, the most high I think I've ever been was my first time hitting a bong. Does this vary from person to person, or is it pretty universal?
I'm a classic stoner. Bongs and rolling papers are my go to. In terms of efficiency, I prefer a bong because you can do more with less weed. However, the more important aspect is the quality of herb and not necessarily what you're smoking it with.
