Listening to music while you’re high is an experience unlike any other. If you’re not familiar with the genre, it can be difficult to decide what songs you should listen to next and if you’re going to enjoy it or not. As we all have our own tastes in music, there’s no wrong answer when it comes to listening to songs while you’re high. However, there are some definite guidelines that you should follow so you know that your time high will be spent enjoying yourself and listening to great music instead of being disappointed with your selection and bored during your smoking session.
Smokey Robinson & the Miracles – The Tracks of My Tears
This is the best song on Spotify for when you’re high. It’s a cover of the original track and it will make you feel like crying because it’s so beautiful. The original had background vocals by Stevie Wonder but this one doesn’t, which I prefer because that makes me cry too much. This is a great song to listen to while weeding your garden or when walking in New York City at night.
What are the side effects?
Different strains of cannabis have different effects on the body. The two main types of cannabis are indica and sativa. While both can produce a sense of euphoria, indica strains are known for their calming, sedative effects that can help reduce stress or insomnia. Sativas, on the other hand, provide a more energetic buzz with uplifting qualities that is best used in the morning or during the day.
Bob Marley – Is This Love?
No song captures the essence of weed like Is This Love? by Bob Marley. It’s an upbeat reggae tune with a catchy chorus, and it can make you feel all the feels, no matter what mood you’re in. Plus, it’s a classic that everyone should listen to at least once when they are high.
John Mayer – Something's Missing
John Mayer’s song, Something’s Missing is a good one to listen to while high. It has a mellow sound that is perfect for easing into your high. If you find yourself in New York and are ready for the perfect soundtrack for your smoke session, this song will be your best friend.
Pink Floyd – Time
This song is a perfect example of the style of music that I think is best to listen to while high. Psychedelic rock, like this track by Pink Floyd, is an interesting change from what you would usually listen to while high. It’s an obvious choice for a playlist and this song especially helps when you want to zone out and get lost in your thoughts. It’s not as fast-paced as some other songs on the list, but its simplicity makes it perfect for getting lost in your thoughts and just relaxing.
I think that Spotify is one of the better ways of finding new music, so I’m adding a few songs from there too.
Thievery Corporation – Moonshine
Just because you’re high, doesn’t mean you can’t still enjoy music. Here are a few albums and songs perfect for your weed-fueled journey.
1) Thievery Corporation – Moonshine This album is the perfect soundtrack to your high. The reggae beats and soothing vocals create an atmosphere that’s hard not to like. Plus, it’s mellow enough that it won’t keep you up all night if you happen to fall asleep while listening.
2) The Flaming Lips – Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots If you’re looking for something with a little more rock flavor, try this album from The Flaming Lips.
Sublime – What I Got
If you’re trying to decide on the perfect song for a smoke session, then you should go with Sublime’s ‘What I Got’. This reggae-rock fusion is mellow and catchy, which will have you bobbing your head and tapping your feet. Plus, if you listen closely, the lyrics are just as good as the beat. Not only do they discuss getting high, but also addiction.
In addition, if you prefer a more up-tempo sound for your smoke session then try listening to New York’s ‘Dope Man’. The song has an upbeat drumming pattern that will keep your energy up while smoking. It also talks about getting high in its lyrics too!
Van Halen – Ain't Talkin' 'Bout Love
Spotify is a great source of music for when you are high. New York can be a great place to start, with some of the best psychedelic rock songs ever made. The song What I Got by Sublime is one such track that will carry you away and make you feel like you are riding in a convertible with the top down on a sunny day.
Daft Punk – Get Lucky
Daft Punk is one of the most well-known electronic artists out there. Daft Punk’s style is a unique blend of electronica, house, disco and techno. Get Lucky by Daft Punk is arguably their best song to date. The song was released in 2013 and it became an instant hit, reaching #1 in more than 20 countries and becoming the most streamed track on Spotify that year with over 881 million streams.
