Getting too high on pot is not just for beginners. Even if someone has been smoking for years, that person is still likely to experience getting stoned. But how does someone handle or manage to be too “high”? What are the necessary things to do when this sensation takes over your consciousness? Read on to know more.
Greening Out is the term used by many when someone experiences a feeling of too “high” because of smoking or trying any kind of cannabis product with a high THC level. Its side effects are common for many individuals. These include:
- Rapid or irregular heartbeat
- Dryness of the mouth
- Excessive sweating
- Mild dizziness
Below are the things you need to do when you experience a high sensation caused by cannabis or marijuana. Since there is no available tablet that you can easily take if you experience such, there are other practical ways that you can do it at your convenience.
- Take a rest or nap
One of the symptoms accompanied by a high sensation is a rapid or irregular heartbeat. To alleviate this symptom, simply lay down and take a rest just by closing your eyes for a maximum of 30 minutes. This way, your heart rate will go back to its average level, making it easier to metabolize the consumed cannabis product.
- Rehydrate by drinking lots of water
Some people experience dehydration because of too much cannabis intake. Once this happens, rehydrate immediately by drinking lots of water. Note that dehydration can trigger other side effects, such as fatigue and nausea. To oppose this phenomenon, drinking water helps and assists in diminishing other effects of high. Aside from water, you can also try drinking other beverages except for alcoholic drinks.
- Drink a cup of coffee
After consuming a cannabis product and feeling sleepy, drinking a coffee cup can help you stay awake and productive. Cannabis can make you fall asleep, so if you have a caffeinated drink with you, especially coffee, it will aid you to stay alerted and activated.
- Take a bath or shower.
Part of the side effects of consuming cannabis is being anxious and confused. And what better activity could someone do to alleviate these effects than taking a shower? Being able to hop in a warm and comforting shower lets you ease and wash away all your anxiety, which also includes the possible high sensation caused by cannabis. However, you should also know that if you are experiencing other side effects such as rapid heartbeat and dizziness, do not shower as the warm temperature of the water can make these effects worse.
- Call for help
The feeling of isolation is one of the side effects of Cannabis consumption. To stay out of this emotion, call a friend or someone who you trusted the most. This way, there will always be a person who will comfort you and remind you that this sensation is only short-lived.
If you are too unsure of what you feel or what to do when having a high sensation, you can always call a doctor or a healthcare specialist to help you. Note that this high feeling is only temporary. However, if you wish to talk to someone specializing in this field, you are free to do so. Furthermore, ensure that when you take cannabis by and by, you already know its effects and how to handle it.
