Have You Ever Been Too High?
Let’s keep it real! This is something that happens even to the most experienced stoners. Marijuana is known to help reduce anxiety, but too much can increase it sometimes. Fortunately, marijuana overdose has no known fatalities. Yup! No one has ever overdose on marijuana!
When you are incredibly high, there is a possibility you can feel some of these things:
Anxiety, panic, and paranoia
Impaired judgment and coordination
Fear and distrust
Hallucinations where you see, hear, or feel things that are not really there
Delusions where you think things that are not true
Feeling like you are going crazy or do not recognize yourself
You know like the first time you tried an edible and found out after you ate it that it was 100mg. Yeah we all have that story to tell. In this blog I’m sharing some tips for what to do if you get TOO STONED!
First thing first… the only real remedy is time. Go to sleep to try to sleep it off but if you want to try something …. Here’s somethings below:
Take Some Cannabidiol (CBD)
CBD is the most prevalent non-intoxicating cannabinoid in the cannabis plant. Over the years, CBD has been proven to deal with paranoia and anxiety. CBD could reduce signs of too much marijuana by balancing out the THC. Research shown that Cannabidiol balances the high and softens the dysphoria–induced by THC, which can make people feel very loopy and weird. CBD is the yin of THC’s yang so it all balances out. Go find your CBD oil to help sober up quickly.
Eat a Snack and Get Hydrated
Drinking enough water with lemon juice will help you stay hydrated. Water can be particularly helpful when it comes to marijuana, which tends to leave you with dry mouth. It’s also an easy activity that gives you something to focus on instead of focusing on the fact that you are high. Eating some lemon or squeezing some lemon juice into your water will counteract some of the psychoactive effects of THC and help you come down as well.
Take a Bath or Shower
Taking a shower makes you feel calm and relaxed. The last time I was “too high” I took a shower that felt like 5 minutes but I was actually in there for a hour. Needless to say, I was very relaxed and went right to bed.
You Can Get Busy
…… and I don’t mean having sex even though that actually sound like a good idea lol. You can go for a walk around your block while listening to your favorite playlist. Going for a short walk, even if it’s for only 10 or 15 minutes will help you by:
Distracting you so you don’t fixate on your high
Lowering your blood pressure
Relieving stress and anxiety
Improving your mood
If you are feeling paranoid doing these things will keep your mind off of that.
Take a Deep Breath and Meditate
Meditation is a common way to deal with anxiety attacks. You can sit with legs crossed or lie on your back and take slow deep breaths. Keep reminding yourself that you will be fine.
No one ever overdose on marijuana and died and you won’t either. The rule for edibles is start low and go slow. That means start with a low milligram and eat one then wait a couple of hours before eating another one.
Stay Lifted and Eat your Weed!
