Does this sound familiar?
The first intake was pleasant, up till when you decided to take the final dab which was simply delicious and seemed like a wonderful idea at the time. However, you overestimated and got it all wrong, the number of marijuana edibles you took was too much and you have become too stoned to admit.
Well, it happens…
That people occasionally find themselves in a scenario where they go far than they had meant. Herbs is now very much available to a growing number of people all over the world, and it's understandable when novices or even experts get too high by consuming more than what they intended.
We call this concept the "rookie syndrome". In this article, we'll uncover helpful hints you can use to assist yourself in overcoming the unpleasant sensation so you can feel like yourself once again.
We've got help right where you want it, relax as you read on:
Honestly, this isn't to psyche you or anything, panicking just adds fuel to what is on ground. Fact is, you can't die from marijuana use because nobody has, and it has been proven that there's no such thing as THC overdose.
When you're high, one of the most essential things to remember is to be cool. It doesn't matter how high you are, the effects will start to wear off within minutes and will be totally gone within an hour or two. You won't have a horrible hangover as you would with alcohol when it's gone, but you may be tired.
Also, remember to breathe slow, deep breaths, and relax. While doing this, do your best to ignore the unpleasant ideas coming to your head.
Take a shower
If you're home luckily on that day when you get too high, a fast and soothing shower will do you great wonders.
Depending on how your body reacts to herbs, a shower can help your body reset naturally, relax and clear your thoughts.
The calming effect of water from your head down to your toes will jolt up your brain and body, helping you to snap out of the whole fuzzy experience.
Think of it as a good way to mentally rehydrate yourself and flush off the nasty effects of too much THC.
Get some rest
Nothing beats a short snooze that helps you sleep off the effects of THC, the active ingredient in herbs that causes the "high" experience.
We recommend it as a fantastic approach to get over a high if you're drowsy. Make it brief, say 20 to 30 minutes so you don't end up in a state of sleep inertia ( a syndrome that makes you feel more tired when you oversleep)
According to a study, a precise 26-minute nap enhances performance by 34 per cent and alertness by 54 per cent.
High on THC?
Find a spot whether your couch or your bed, sit or lie down, cover yourself with a blanket and afford yourself the short version of mother nature's gift.
Chew up on some black pepper
Yes, black pepper is a spice used to season cooked meals, however, you can use it in this case.
If you're wondering how black pepper helps, it's about terpenes. Black pepper contains terpenes which can help tame the euphoric effects of THC and inhibit its action.
Herbs and black pepper exhibit chemical similarities, according to a 2011 study published in the British Journal of Pharmacology. This makes it possible for both of them to attach to the same cannabinoid receptors. As a result, beta-caryophyllene effectively inhibits the receptor and prevents THC from latching on, limiting the effects of the cannabinoid.
So, feel free to chew 2 to 3 balls of black pepper, or take a deep sniff of pulverized black pepper.
Find something to drink and snack on
Why sit uncomfortably or stare groggily at the wall clock when you can enjoy a couple of light healthy foods/snacks. They can help take your mind off the situation for a bit and allow you to get some nourishment.
We recommend this because the glucose and lipids in foods and snacks will help you reclaim your sense of normalcy. Some scientists believe this is due to the fact that lipids (fat cells derived from food) attach to herbs, leading them to be digested more quickly.
As you snack, get some water to go along with it to ward off dehydration. Stay away from alcohol and caffeinated drinks, it will only make you feel worse.
Take some CBD
What on earth is CBD you ask, it's also known as cannabidiol and is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid derived from the herb plant. Believed to be the most therapeutic portion of cannabis, CBD is readily available in form of tinctures, gel tabs, candies, vape-ready oil cartridges, and distillate powder- however you like it.
It is used to treat a wide range of ailments, such as anxiety, depression, pain, epilepsy, and many more. Here's how CBD helps out in this case:
You might care to know that both of them are cannabinoids hence, they interact to give a therapeutic and euphoric feeling ( by binding to the same receptors). The end result is that CBD will counteract THC's intoxicating effects in your body and help you chill out.
Take some lemon juice
Want to get down from the high ladder? Squeeze a lemon and down the juice. The thing is, the sweet juice from lemon is called limonene and it contains terpene, which may be found in the rinds of citrus fruits. This aromatic oil has been shown to help people relax.
All you need to do is slice it open, and suck on the lemon slice. Who knows, the acidity of a lemony lemon may be precisely what you need to bring you back down after a period of inebriation.
