I Try Keeping it Green
When it comes to smoking weed, I consider my self some what of an conservative.
I think all these new cannabis products are great, but I prefer to stick to smoking buds.
Don’t get me wrong, every now and then I’ll hit some Dab, Wax, make/eat an edible and Vape THC Oils.
But, it’s not my preference. I only usually buy good ol’fashion sticky green.
Now that doesn’t mean I would turn down a dab, when offered.
My 97% THC Nightmare
Recently at a family get together, I ran into a cousin thats know for keeping cannabis at all times.
Great, because I hadn’t had a chance to toke up and didn’t have any bud on me.
Rather then bring it up. I waited silently to see if he would bring it up.
In middle of a conversation, he reached into his pocket and took a quick puff from a vape pen.
Here’s my chance!
Bro, mind if I take a hit?
“No problem of course”, thats the reply I was expecting.
So I reached over, grabbed it, pulled a massive drag and held it it.
It couldn’t be more than just a second or two for him to realize what he did.
knowing I’m more of a casual pot smoker, he quickly said,
“Yo, just so you know thats real potent, 97%“.
Me, still trying to retain that puff replied, “27% THC, nice!”
“No dude, 97% THC”
I exhaled fast, It must of sounded something like a tire being deflated.
“Wow, this stuff is that strong?”, I said. “Yeh, sorry I should of warned you first”, he said.
The THC starts to kick in
It didn’t take long at all before I started feeling really high.
I managed for at least 10 minutes or so with out any issues. I have been blazed worse than this before.
Thats when I began to realized, I’m still getting higher!
Kind of like being on an elevator heading to the 50th floor. When you missed your stop on the 3rd.
There seemed to be no stopping it.
I knew I needed help fast, before I pass out in the middle of the floor.
Desperation and Relief
Lucky, I had enough energy to find a relative / hardcore drinking buddy.
I knew this would be the guy. He would help me ride it out or carry be to the car.
Hopefully with out making to much of a commotion, the last thing I wanted was to make a scene.
I managed, but barely, to walk to and take a seat with him in the corner.
As I was telling him the deal, things just kept getting worse!
- Cold Seats
- Blacking out
You name it, I couldn’t even talk properly, I could hear my self mumbling.
It was like I wasn’t there. More like passively watching a trippy movie.
My neck could no longer support my head. I closed my eyes and rest my head.
I was fighting unconsciousness!
“Dude, what should I get you, your super pale“, he said.
I knew this feeling and had an idea of what I had to do.
Having had hypoglycemia as a teen, these symptoms where very familiar.
“Orange juice, or something really sweet, fast”
I said with
one eye opened,
the other closed,
drool running down my chin.
Lol, yeah I really was that messed up!
Lost in the abyss
I don’t believe he even had a chance to leave his seat.
I was completely faded, No sure of where or who I was.
I just knew something was wrong.
He returned with a cup of OJ.
I couldn’t see him, or anything else at that point. Everything went dark, I could just hear him.
I reached out my hand and waited for something.
He grabbed it and placed and helped me get the cup with out spilling.
I downed it, almost in one big gulp.
Starting to wake up
That cheap, super sugary cup of GMO pasteurized OJ did the trick!
What a relief, it didn’t take long at all. I would say that within 5-10 minutes I began to come too.
That was scary, I almost passed the fuk out!
He chuckled, “Yeh, you were gone!”
It’s funny now, but I don’t think he knows how close he was to dragging me across the room.
Marijuana, THC especially causes a quick and steep insulin drop.
The only way you can recover and get rid of a high fast, is by getting sugar.
The drop in insulin is what causes the munchies. It’s your body telling you to quickly recover and stabilize insulin.
With really strong extracts, like the 97% THC oil I tied.
You may not have the opportunity to feed the munchies. It all happens to fast.
Drinking juice or eating sweets maybe your only chance to stop a high.
Like I said, I’m not a heavy smoker. I work place does random drug tests. So I might smoke on weekends and certain occasions.
Hoping that if I only take a hit every now and then.
I might be able to pass, if I get tested.
If worse comes to worst, I keep a Marijuana cleanse in my work locker.
But I think I learned my lesson.
As for me, I’m sticking with herb from now on!
