If trying for first time I would go slow until you know the effects of cannabis. Lower thc until see effects on you. Everyone is different. Some have higher tolerance and some can get extremely stoned after 1 hit. Different strains can have different effects. Some hit ya fast and some can creep up on you. So if your new and smoke a bunch of creeper weed than you might just get too stoned. Sativa can give ya more a head high, Indica more body high, Hybrid you get a mix of sativa and indica. Going back in time i would have I would have created hybrids to get higher thc.
I would say like Colamaker try low Thc first something like Wreckage X Master Kush a 50% Indica & 50% Sativa Thc level 14% to 18% but a very nice smoke My wife says that it is a very good smoke I am sorry I myself do not puff so I have to use my wife and stepsons experience I just grow and supply them. are you going to grow your own weed
Smoke with someone who's done it before even if you have to supply. No edibles till more experienced. Remember you will go back to normal when it wears off. If you get to high eat something sweet and try to sleep.
