Head High

Last updated: May 12, 2021

What Does Head High Mean?

A head high, as opposed to a body high, is a type of substance-induced state where a person obtains an altered sense of perception. This can be characterized by bouts of creativity, inward exploration, and the formulation of deep thoughts often coupled with a desire to analyze things.

Individuals experiencing a head high often report a heightened sense of perception and sometimes even attribute it to bursts of energy. Individuals experiencing a head high will often have an increased heart rate during the high.


Maximum Yield Explains Head High

Unlike a head high, a body high is usually characterized by a sense of relaxation and mellowness. A head high, on the other hand, is a mental high, where the consumption of cannabis alters more of your mind than your body.

With a head high, your body will feel more or less normal, but your state of mind is altered. A person doesn't feel as 'stoned' when they are experiencing a head high.

Different strains or marijuana provide each individual user with different effects. In general, though, individuals seeking a head high will often choose or be directed to cannabis sativa strains, and those looking for a body high will often opt for indica strains.

Strains that are known for their head high effects are OG Kush, Afghan Kush, Purple Kush, Northern Lights, White Diesel, Super Silver Haze, and many more.

Some strains that are credited with delivering body highs include (among many more): Bubblegum, Grapefruit, Jack Herer, Matanuska Tundra, NYC Diesel, Sour Diesel, Strawberry Cough, and Train wreck.
