Under the influence of marijuana. Everything seems to slow down, and become better. Music seems much better, and you seem to understand it more. While high people may experience enhanced creativity and artistic skills. A high individual can still function, however he/she will not be crisp. Some people are able to drive as good as normal, because they are aware of the imparement, and are able to control themselves. A high can last from 40 minutes to several hours, depending on the quality, strain, and method of smoking(pipe, joint, blunt, bong, blades, lungs etc.) New users may experience a bad high, panic attacks, very red eyes, and coughing their heads off.
I got so high today, I felt like I was on a boat.

feeling good and totally oblivious
Being high is tough to explain without being high yourself but I will do my best. Getting high isnt always painless, giant bong rips or big hits of any kind can and will hurt your lungs for a little bit but its okay because your high. You feel lightheaded and and wispy at first. Then you laugh at everything that happens next. If someone told you your whole family was murdered you would laught at it and ask for another joke. You lose some motor skill. Driving is a little impaired but for the experienced stoner its not a problem. Depending on the amount of bud smoked and the quality of the herb your high should last 1-4 hours.

Probably the best feeling EVER! When you're buzzing, you start feeling pretty good about yourself, and you have a big grin on your face. When you're high, you laugh uncontrollably, almost for minutes on end. A few times, I laughed so hard, I wasn't breathing and I was crying, lol. When you're high, you think you're the smartest person in the world. To you, people say the stupidest things. When you're high, you feel really slow. When you try to go fast, you...don't go fast. Simple as that. You feel more appreciative towards music, especially hip-hop. I recommend Tech N9ne and BTnH when you're high. When going out in public high, ALWAYS spray some cologne or smell-good shit on, and use VISINE. I don't recommend going to school high, but I do it sometimes anyway. In school, you don't do your work, and it's rather boring. I don't know what to say about going to work high. I guess it depends all on what you do. And THAT...is my definition of high.
I got so high last weekend, I had a headache.

High, it's pretty simple but with several twists and turns. Already, you can tell I am high and that is why I begin this with complete nonsense. However, high is when the most unrealistic things that occur seem completely real, and the real seems compltely unrealistic. At times, while being high some sort of an invention, great idea can be thought of and make you feel as if it will make you millions one day. Not only do you think of some crazy ideas, but you are able to tell the deepest and most intense lies and feel as if everyone believes you. Food, oh let me tell you about food. Every sort of combination seems unbearable as if it is an orgasm in your mouth. Nothing can compare to the sweet satisfaction of the taste of food. Cravings errupt and you feel as if you need to meet them. Being high at a party usually has its up and downs. Downside is when being high alone or with someone else, you may feel out of place and as if you are not even invloved. But as a group, being high at a party is an ultimate adventure/climax with unforgettable memories. The best though, when high, you laugh at the most rediculous things. Then people may stare at you, and knowing you are laughing so much because you are high, you may laugh even harder causing a tremendous awkwardness. Before it is all over, the second your head touches a pillow, you are completely passed out. It may be one of the best sleeps you have had in a long time too.
Being high is the feeling after you smoke weed (marijuana).
by Leprechaun on Fire August 27, 2009
The feeling (or rather, multitude of feelings) that comes on after smoking weed. The sensations you feel when you're high are hard to describe, but I'll try to tackle each one individually since it's such a wonderful thing that everyone should experience at some point. Keep in mind that these descriptions are based only on my personal experiences (and possibly some I've heard from friends). The high varies from person to person but it's pretty much always enjoyable.

Positive Effects

1. The euphoria. In my mind, euphoria doesn't really describe being high since if you've never gotten high you don't really know what people mean by euphoria. My first time experiencing euphoria (wasn't actually my first time smoking weed) was one of the best moments of my life. I had already smoked a shitload of weed, gone for a long walk with some friends, and returned to a friends house. I was crashing and decided to smoke some more. Lying on my friend's couch, I suddenly had this overwhelming feeling of bliss. For no particular reason, I just muttered over and over again - "I feel soooo good right now."

2. Deep/introspective thinking. While the experience is different for everyone, I wouldn't go so far as to say I think deeply, philosophically, or introspectively while I'm high. Rather, when I start to think, I go into a sort of trance where I know what's going on around me, but I don't exactly process any of it. I am completely focused on my thoughts. I guess it's almost like tripping. If you ever get an experience like this, immediately listen to Phish.

3. Increased appreciation for music and senses in general. Depending on the setting, type of weed, and the music, the appreciation you feel can differ, but it's always awesome. Sometimes, you simply recognize the skill and talent required to compose the music you're listening to. Other times, you sort of twitch and move to the music unconsciously until it sort of feels like you're part of the music. When you start doing that weird, amazing thinking I described, listening to a good band can take you into a dreamworld. This is really indescribable, partly because it's such a foreign feeling and partly because you probably won't remember most of this experience once you sober up. Other senses are also more sensitive when high - touch, smell, taste. One interesting note - busting a nut while high is a great feeling.

4. Laughter. When you're high, things are just generally funnier. However, a specific sort of humor (which may vary depending on person) usually makes you just completely laugh uncontrollably. When high, some things are just so ridiculous, you find them absolutely hysterical. I suggest watching Aqua Teen Hunger Force while high - it's frickin' awesome, especially the Dickesode.

5. Relaxation. Sometimes, weed will not relax you but just make you experience the above effects intensely. However, many strains of marijuana sort of make you relax. This is because when you're high, you often get this feeling that if you stand up, some invisible force pulls you back down, forcing you to sit or lie down. Once down again, it feels like your body is melting into the surface on which you're resting. It's pretty neat.

6. Other. Even when they're not high, many stoners simply enjoy life more. After experiencing a really good high, you will generally just appreciate the beauty of the world more profoundly. This might not happen very often for all I know, but it has happened to me.

Neutral Effects

1. The munchies. The severity of the hunger you feel while high varies from person to person. For me, it's almost intolerable, almost painful. The munchies are weird because the hunger you feel is not normal. You feel incredibly empty and the thought of eating seems wonderful to you, even if you've already eaten. Furthermore, when you're high, food tastes REALLY good. I suggest chicken wings and/or Double Stuf Oreos. I also advise drinking carbonated drinks when you're REALLY stoned as the feeling of little bubbles exploding in your mouth is incredible.

2. Bloodshot eyes. The severity of this symptom varies, but usually your eyes just get really red. The only downside to this is that it makes it pretty easy to tell whether or not someone is high. In addition, your eyelids just sort of refuse to open fully sometimes.

3. Slowness. This is partly a result of the relaxation. Since you always feel like you're being pulled down, moving is hard and takes concentration sometimes.

4. Drymouth. Smoking weed makes your mouth really dry. It's not dangerous, but if you're inexperienced or the high is intense, you might think that your throat is closing up even if it's not. Just drink something - it'll calm you down and taste delicious.

5. Hallucinations. This has never happened to me, so I can't really comment, but you probably need to eat cannabis to get this effect and, even then, I think it's still pretty rare. Don't expect to trip balls (like with lsd) or anything though, even if you do hallucinate.

6. Altered sense of time. While high, time usually seems to slow down. Although this is listed as a neutral effect, it could be considered positive since it makes the high seems like it's lasting longer than it really is.

7. Short-term memory loss. Although this may seem like a bad thing, it only lasts for a little while, maybe even not lasting through the whole high. It can also be kinda cool since when you forget what you were talking about sometimes you see cool visuals in your head of the thought flying away or something (that always happens to me).

Negative Effects

Although being high is amazing, there are occasionally negative effects. None of these are too bad, but they're unpleasant nonetheless.

1. Anxiety. This is the most common negative effect of marijuana. Anxiety can occur as a result of inexperience, too much experience, bad weed, or a poor setting. Basically, you just feel really nervous and anxious, but this always passes if you move into a more comfortable setting. Never get high alone at night - it's pathetic and scary.

2. Paranoia. This is usually the result of the anxiety, but oftentimes, you may find that you believe everyone is watching you or that you have a spy. This feeling will pass so long as you are with friends if you just relax and think about pleasant things.

3. Other. There are other negative effects, but none of them are very serious at all and usually appear far worse if you experience the anxiety of paranoia mentioned above.

4. Crashing. The high from marijuana only lasts a few hours (although it may seem like longer) and the come-down can be quick to appear. After the high completely wears off, you may feel pretty groggy for a few hours. This will pass, though.

5. Long-term effects. The long-term negative effects of smoking marijuana are pretty much the same as with any other substance that you smoke - lung damage. However, it's possible that long-term use may also impair your memory. The study that weed causes schizophrenia, however, is mostly bullshit (unless you've got a history of it in your family).

Overall, I would say that being high is usually a pretty magical experience. I recommend weed to anyone in high school or older.
"Dude, I was so high last night. I watched Aqua Teen for like an hour and I ate all my Cheez-Its."

the most amazing feeling in the world. the first couple times you smoke, you almost feel like you're in a dream, watching the world go on around you. things also seem to be going in slow motion. when you're high, every little thing will seem funny, and you'll laugh till your stomach hurts. even at things that aren't meant to be funny, like someone saying their dog got run over by a tractor. you're eyes get real red and squinty, so make sure you keep a bottle of rhotos or visine on you. you also have th appetite of a wild animal, and you'll eat everything in sight. those munchies never fail. when you're high, you come up with ideas that seem amazing at the time, but then you don't remember them when you're not high. i'm really high right now. all in all, weed is godly.
damn dude, i'm so high. i feel like i could eat an antelope.
by letsparty217 February 24, 2009
The feeling is honesetly somtimes really really hard to explain but i will do my best. Just as it sounds. To be as HIGH as a kite. To be able to feel what a bird feels when you close your eyez and begin to access you imaginative cortex of your brain. Your heart beats faster in the begginning and your eyez grow, followed by a temperature(if you dont get a temp. then your not high enough......take another hit!). You will find yourself laughing at the most miniscule(smallest) things, and your perception will widen. YOu will start to notice things you never would have noticed if sober. Everyone i belive has a inner person living inside who doesnt come out too often, Marijuanna brings em out. He will be very different than YOU. Not all the time but he will be everything your not, meaning he will be rude and clumsy and will get you into trouble(So please use this as a recreational activity and dont drive when high. Only continuous users can handle driving and even they mess up. I wanted to finish here but thats just the tip of the iceberg. One cornea in your eye will get big and one will become small, some more than others. Some people get aggressive when high, some get nice and comfortable. Depends on the person but mostly on the type of Herb(type of marijuanna). Music, Video Games, Movies(especially Comedies) highten the high. If your at a party youll find youve never danced like you did or somtimes the opposite happens. The sound of the music whether Rap or classical will be heard in a totally different perspective. You will find yourself standing/sitting and listening so carefully as if its the last track that will ever be played again, and when finished you will be like OHH WWWOOOWWW dat was tooo kooo man " PLay DAt Shit AGAIN" and you just might be at it for a few hours or so before you realize that you had to be at work an hour ago. I work at an arcade and i got high with a co worker once. And so i go to a car game and stare at it thinking how freakin koo it is, the car when racing looked like a spaceship. I wish i couldve shared that moment with everybody. But ALL GOOD THINGS MUST COME TO AN END. Enter The Downing Stage. Basically "dude ima close my eyez for a sec" or "im tired". Allright I think I did an allright job as to explaing what High Feels like but the best way Just smoke man. Its not a big deal, your not gonna get addicted after one time I PROMISE. All that i ask is that you do it responsibly. Thank you BLAZE
hahahaha........ continued by more uneccesary laughter

eh yoo let wrap up a blunt and get high maann
by BLAZEon420 September 04, 2006
a feeling of euphoria. It's hard to explain, but basically they best feeling you will ever have. You feel nothing, but goodness. You're not cold or hot or uncomfortable in any way, it is just pure happiness, you feel no pain just a rush. It takes a lot longer to do something and you move really slow but it feels as if things are happening at a faster rate. You rap hella well and laugh hysterically at everything, it seems almost as if you're not really breathing. Something you say seems so thoughtful and deep but really its just meaningless stoner talk. Everything is beautiful and smiling at you. feel like a straw, as if water or some substance is rushing through your entire body and your spinning but it doesn't make you sick you feel like you're twitching but in reality you're not. People laugh at you, however you don't care because you're not actually there. Spend all morning rolling, so you can smoke later. ledge. being in a hella sketch place and just lighting up, not caring about anything, peer pressuring people into it, talking about everything and anything. your smoking instruments are you're babies.you make new friends. you never want to stop, you feel as weed is all you need. you wake up the next day still blazed out of your mind but feel the need to wake and back, and finally, every Kottonmouth Kings, Slightly Stoopid and Expendables song narrates you're fucking lifeeeeeeeee.
Saying things like
"hence the word, french fry"

"weed actually makes you smarter, the brain cells cancel out"

"i want to stop but they wont let me they will get mad"

"holy shit is that my dog?@ CHESTERRRR !@ COME HERE"

"okay lets leave in an hour?"
"wanna smoke another bowl first?"
"fuck yeah"
"fuck we gotta go!"

high ass mother fucker
