This is the period of time that typically lasts anywhere from 35 to 45 minutes, after a person takes their final drag from their marijuana supply.

Fully isolated shelter is the goal.
Peter: "Hey, yo Mike! Have you been able to get hold of Willie? I sent him 3 texts about 20 minutes ago, about that emergency situation over at the Jinks warehouse."

Mike: "Yeah, he sounded like he was going to puff on the magic dragon with some friends during his lunch today. He's probably in the back of the shop office cocooning right now, no doubt!"

Is like spooning, but when the little spoon is so small that they are totally wrapped and enveloped in their larger partners special hug that they appear to actually be in a cocoon.
She was so well covered in his flesh when spooning last night, she was actually cocooning.

Did you see that cute chick emerge from that hug?

That was not hugging, that was cocooning, and she was the butterfly.

Usually occurs when laying on one's back when wrapped in blanket so that only their head is shown; blanket is also tucked under their feet and under arms. Looks like one is making a cocoon as butterflies would.

Girl: "Aw, look at you all nestled up there."
Sister: "Yeah, im cocooning, it's the best way to keep warm."
