The incredible, Edible Herb!
If your a heavy smoker, or a just a weekend toker. No matter how tolerant you think you are to THC. Even if you have had experience with edibles in the past.
If your not careful and don’t take it slow, you can get really high, really fast!
And for a very long time, so be prepared to enjoy the ride.
Lucky, there are a few things you can do to come down if you get too high on edibles.
High From Smoking Weed vs. Edibles
Any true, long time stoner has OD’d at least once smoking weed. It happens to the best of us and its usually not a big deal.
You take a huge rip from your Dab Rig and before you know it. You knocked out on the ground drooling like a baby.
Thats the key difference between getting too high smoking Vs. edibles.
When you smoke weed and get too high, you pass out and stop.
With Edibles, when you take a dose of THC thats too high to handle.
There is no going back, kind of…
The high creeps up on you and keeps coming for hours. It doesn’t matter if you pass out or stay up.
Edible THC is going to run its course, with or without you being conscious of it.
What Happens When You Get Too High
Can Too Much THC Kill You?
Like I said before, it can happen to the best of us.
Maybe you smoked too much pot, tried a new super potent strain.
Or maybe you decided to eat a whole THC laced cookie, when your friend told you to only take half!
No matter the case, your stoned AF and starting to panic. Should you be worried about it?
I mean whats the worst that can happen, lets find out
The side effects of too much THC can be scary
Cannabinoids like THC can effect your system quickly, depending on how you used it.
When you smoke pot, it can take noticeable effects within the first one to five minutes.
Marijuana edibles can be real creepers. For example:
Cannabis Cookie, it can take anywhere from 30 minutes to 1 hour to kick in!
Now, that doesn’t mean that you will getthe total effects of the high in 1 hour.
The high from edibles can last for hours and peak in 2 to 3 hours.
Thats a long time and the worst thing you can do is eat more. Don’t be fooled, wait it out before you decide to take any more.
Marijuana Over Dose Side Effects
If you took a huge dose and are starting to get really high, don’t panic.
So far, no one on earth has ever taken a lethal dose of Marijuana.
It’s just not possible, no matter how much THC is in your system.
Once your endocannabinoid receptors have maxed out, you go to sleep.
So heres what you can expect if you ate to many edibles:
- Cold sweat
- Drop in blood sugar
- pale appearance
- Dizziness, drowsy
- Passing out
What to do if you get too high
The negative side effects associated with marijuana use are all related to its effects on blood sugar.
The drop in blood glucose (sugar), also causes the munchies!
Cannabis causes a dramatic drop in blood sugar. This can be very beneficial to health and there are plenty of research into this.
Here is just a few:
- Cannabis for Diabetes Treatment
- Marijuana users have smaller waists
- Cannabis users less likely to get diabetes
Too high on edibles, heres a tip!
So, what does this all mean anyway?
Your too high and feel sick, eat or drink something very sweet.
The best and easiest way to counteract the effects of getting too high is to get a quick dose of sugar.
This can be drinking juice, eating cake or candies.
The best and quickest hit of sugar would be in the form of glucose.
Glucose the simplest form of sugar available. Your body can use it as soon as you ingest it.
My go-to sugar shots are Smarties
Smarties are cheap and easy to get. Most supermarkets carry them and you can get a 2lb bag for a couple of bucks.
One roll is equal to 6 grams of glucose.
So, if your way to high and feel like your about to pass out.
Here is how you can come down from an edible high fast!
Grab a roll or two, chew them up and wash them down with water.
Within 5 minutes you should start to recover!
Slowing Down The High From Edibles
Edibles can effect different people in different ways. Some of us have really fast metabolisms, so don’t.
If you have a fast metabolism, THC edibles may seem to hit you too hard and too fast.
You can slow that down by eating the right foods with your edible.
Having a full stomach will slow down the rate in which THC is absorbed into your system.
Yes, it can be that simple, but you can control the rate even more.
By eating food that are high in fiber and fats. The rate of digestion really slows down.
The fats can trap THC and the fiber slows digestion. Making it take longer for edibles to take effect.
You can’t get rid of edible high completely, but you can control it. Hope these simple tricks help you out!
