    Is there a difference between high and stoned?? What?


    I thought it meant the same thing but clearly it seams to be a difference.

    If you want to look at it that way.


    I would say being high is the happy mellow buzz that you want forever, and being stoned is just layed out thinking about how stoned you are.

    i think of the difference like this: being high off pot is in the beginning when your first few hits make you more talkative, active, social... being stoned is when you keep smoking more and you feel lazy, just watch tv and simply enjoy doing nothing... well thats how i see the two..

    I'd like to add that being high leaves you cognitive more competent and active than being stoned.

    i'd have to agree being stoned your pretty useless and it's quite good, being high you can still do stuff

    my friend and i usea referencingscale to determine our relative intoxication by cannabis.


    I'm...


    buzzed


    high


    stoned


    ripped


    blazed


    blown


    hydro-piffed


    obliterated, the only way to reach this state while smoking cannabis is if you can't say the word obliterated


    and sometimes we add in the comical levels: wasted; sloshed; gone; mostly to mock the kids who love to brag about how intoxicated they were the night before, with those "original" phrases as in, "all i got so wasted!" "dude, you should have scene me, i was sloshed!" "there is no way, i'm gone!"

    I think one difference in being high and stoned would be the way that
    you can handle it. I mean like when your stoned you would be more
    likely to sit back and think "OH MY GOD IM REALLY FUCKING HIGH
    ,........HOW DID I GET SO HIGH.....WHOA LOOK AT THOSE COLORS". Contrary
    to being high when your high you would be in more of a talkitive party
    high that works well with a conversation and would be an easy way to
    find out many odd things out man. or those could be just names
    that caught on like "Ripped" or "sloshed" lik those origanals BEEKSc1 was talking about

    Ok, the difference is this. High is a kind of saying that shows you first feeling the buzz. Stoned is when you have smoked a couple of bulls and can't move... or just can't comprehend what you are doing.

    high is more of a sativa feeling and stoned is more of an indica feeling.

    i have never thought of it that way, dastardlymonkey. sativas are the good active highs, and the indicas are great for the roast feast before your ready to crash for the night
