Cannabis connoisseur and entrepreneur Seth Rogen has a message for people new to cannabis or returning after years: take one hit and wait 15 minutes to see if another is needed.

The hilarious video begins with a throwback message to be considerate of others while rewinding, a feeling that might be lost for many today.

Rogen welcomes the audience back to Houseplant Presents. He notes that the lesson of the day – the seemingly hand-held camera clumsily zooming in on his face – is meant to help people better understand the importance of portion control.

The retro offer with the scratchy-looking video then shows several people at a party who look incredibly unhip and stilted. One woman reaches for a joint while another woman, obviously scripted, asks, “Are you sure? You don’t use cannabis often. “

But the first woman appears wild. Holding their hands together, they respond to these worries with an exaggerated, playful shrug. “Don’t worry about me,” she says, while the other guest watches with growing restlessness, anticipating the hair-raising events that are about to happen.

Fear comes quickly. A puff and the faked self-confidence of the smoker turn into fear and fear, while threatening music builds up in the background.

Jerking, the woman apologizes. “I have to go to the bar. I mean bathrooms,” she adds with an almost hysterical “Ha, ha. Oops.”

The other woman barely closes the bathroom door and knocks. “Are you okay there?” She asks. The woman replies that she is fine. The affected friend then asks, “Did you have too much cannabis?” as the camera zooms in on her face.

The woman in the bathroom, who is increasingly panicking and becoming paranoid, replies in a strangely optimistic and stressed voice that she is fine. “I just go to the bathroom like a normal person. Ha ha ha ha. “

The woman looks in the mirror and tries to calm down. “Bring it together, Selena. Bring it together. They don’t look at you. You drank too much cannabis. Bring it together. God, you idiot, ”she pleads before she seems to start crying.

The video then moves on to Rogen, who looks almost like a deer in the headlights, before it gets dead serious.

“Are you familiar with that? In many ways, cannabis is unlike anything else in the world, full of mystery and wonder, ”he says when the video shows a break of dawn, an almost god-like image.

This tone then changes to “normal” roe. “In other ways, cannabis is just like many other things on the planet in that not everyone needs the same amount to work properly,” he suggests. “If you don’t use cannabis regularly or have not used cannabis for a while, you may prefer less cannabis than you think,” he says in an inviting tone, advising people to start slowly.

Rogen recommends newbies and returners to score a single hit, as the video shows the formerly freaky partygoer having a train and looking happy and relaxed.

“Then get your phone or egg timer and set the alarm clock for 15 minutes. When your timer runs out, see how you feel, ”recommends Rogen. “Unless you’re excruciatingly tired or having a panic attack, you may have another hit. Or not. Better to overdo it than overdo it. “

The video then ends with the tag “Please take responsibly”.

Start low, go slow is a familiar refrain in the cannabis world. Health Canada recommends looking for products with 2.5 milligrams or less of THC for foods that produce unexpected results and that may take some time, and understand that it can take up to four hours to fully effect is.

When it comes to smoking and vaping, Health Canada recommends starting with a hit or two of a joint with 100 mg / g or less of THC, with effects being felt in seconds to minutes and full effects in up to 30 minutes.

The sundial suggests starting low and driving slowly. This also applies if this is your first time trying a potentially heavier load.

BroBible says it’s tough to get houseplant cannabis in Los Angeles, where the brand was recently launched. The word is that the brand could soon be available in pharmacies in San Diego and the Bay Area.
