Cannabis consumption is not an exact science, so finding the right products and doses for you is, oftentimes, reliant on experimentation and figuring what works for you personally. Although dispensary employees generally have the expertise to recommend strains you’ll like, once you get home, how much you use is up to you. Almost every cannabis consumer has a story of that time they got way too high, whether they were trying weed for the first time or switched to an unfamiliar product. When this happens, it can often be a scary or uncomfortable feeling, but luckily there are a few ways to counteract a high that’s too intense. If you live in Riverside, Chino, Ontario, Corona, or one of our other weed delivery service areas, you can use these five tips to sober up if you get a little too high from your cannabis delivery.
1. Black Peppercorns
One interesting way to counteract a too-intense cannabis high is to chew on whole black peppercorns. Black pepper contains a terpene called beta-caryophyllene, which increases the sedating effects of THC in combination with marijuana’s tetrahydrocannabinol. These effects counteract that paranoia that often comes with a too-intense high, so you can feel more sober and in-control after chewing on two or three peppercorns. You can also crush the peppercorn and sniff it rather than chew on it, but be careful not to inhale any of the powder.
One way that many people like to come down from a high is to exercise. Going for a walk or light jog around your neighborhood will help you lower your blood pressure and reduce the effects of your high. Just make sure that you’re not lightheaded and you live in a safe area that you know well. Stay within a close radius of your home so that you don’t get lost and exacerbate any feelings of anxiety or paranoia.
3. Sleep it Off
If you feel ill from the effects of your marijuana or if it’s late at night, try falling asleep to let your high pass. Sleeping it off will allow your body to focus on feeling better so you can awaken sober and recharged. If you find it difficult to fall asleep while high, focus on your breathing and count with each breath.
Drinking water seems to be the cure for everything. Just like with recovering from illness, drunkenness, or tiredness, staying well-hydrated can help reduce the effects of a too-intense cannabis high. If possible, drink cold ice water; this helps reduce your heart rate and increase blood circulation, reducing feelings of anxiety and helping to flush the THC out of your system more quickly.
5. Counteract with CBD
It may seem counterintuitive to ingest more cannabis-derived products when you’re too high, but CBD can actually help counteract the effects of consuming too much THC. Since CBD is a highly effective anxiety-reducing compound, it can help eliminate any feelings of anxiety or paranoia and prevent a cannabis-induced anxiety attack. Check your local online weed delivery service for CBD oils, CBD patches, or CBD water, as these can all help you come down from a high.
