When you’re good and high one of the first things you notice is that you’ve suddenly got cotton mouth.

That dry mouth feeling is just part of the territory. It happens when cannabinoids from the weed you just smoked bind to endocannabinoid receptors in your mouth.

Basically, the weed signals your body to slow down saliva production. The only problem is that leaves you seriously dried out.

2. Red Eyes
