What do I do if I get to high is a question you might be asking yourself if you are new to smoking or consuming cannabis. For those who are not used to marijuana, it is possible for them to feel too high. Sometimes this can lead to a feeling of paranoia and cause people to have a panic attack or what we call in the cannabis culture a freakout. If you feel like you have developed this problem and are too high there are a few things you can do. You don't have to call nine-one-one and go to the hospital. That will just cost you a fortune and will accomplish the same thing that you can do at home on your own.
The first thing you would want to do to help bring yourself down from a high is to eat. Food will help you to bring down your buzz. Taking a walk outside with some fresh air and exercise can also be a helpful solution. Sometimes the best solution of all is to just lay down and go to sleep. Depending on whether you have gotten too high on an Indica or a sativa this may be a challenge. An Indica buzz will tend to leave you sleepy, to begin with, whereas a sativa buzz can leave you feeling wired and wide awake.
Generally, the feeling your experiencing may feel like it's going to last forever to you but the truth is it will only last a few hours at most. Most often people will come down from feeling too high within 45 minutes to an hour and a half. Some individuals who have a low tolerance may experience a 4-6 hour period before they feel normal again. No matter whether you find exercise or food the key to helping you come down from your high initially it will lead you to wanting to go to sleep. After you wake up you will feel refreshed and not feel the effects from the marijuana you have consumed earlier.
To avoid getting too high it is recommended that you understand your dosage. Keep track of this so that you can find what dosage works for you. Remember that the percentage of THC in cannabis breaks down to the milligrams you consume per gram. For example, a cannabis strain that has 24% THC will break down to 240 milligrams of cannabis per gram. This means a strain like Girl Scout Cookies is going to be stronger than a strain like Chemdawg on average. Be sure to pay attention to the levels of THC in the cannabis product you are purchasing.
Hopefully, you live in a state that does not have prohibition in place because in these states it is almost impossible to know what you are truly getting. If you happen to live in a legal state you can also purchase CBD which is nonpsychoactive and is known to combat the feeling of being too high for many as it counteracts the THC that got them high in the first place. The most important thing to remember is to stay calm, eat, breath and sleep!
