We’ve all been there - had one too many edibles or took one too many puffs. Next thing you know it you’re tripping out on lint that’s floating around in the room. Although it can make for an interesting experience, not a lot of people enjoy the feeling of being too high. So, here are some tips on what to do if you’re high AF!
Why Does This Happen?
Everybody has their own unique bodily tolerance for edibles and strains of THC. Also, depending on how potent the strain is, you can experience varying highs. However, it is possible to overdo it and feel the need to seek an immediate come-down.
While Delta 8 THC is not as strong as Delta 9 THC, it can still get you very high; this depends on your THC tolerance, body composition, and other factors. There may be times when you’re super high, and it simply isn’t the right time to be.
Let’s say you have to get to work, and you just and finished a quick session. However, you didn’t think it would hit you that hard. Now you have to clock in and try to act normal. If you find yourself in this predicament or similar to it - here are some helpful tips.
How To Bring Your High Down
Now that we have a little more understanding on why this happens, here are some recommendations to help bring your high down. It’s important to note that it might not work right away but keep trying different things that can help you come down.
Take some CBD
Not everyone is aware of this, but Cannabidiol (CBD) can help when you feel like you may have consumed too much THC. How is that so? It’s simple, CBD has some effects opposite to that of THC. A good number of people have reported feeling much better after taking CBD to calm their high.
Although cannabidiol (CBD) and THC are cannabinoids, CBD won’t get you high like THC can. CBD is usually taken to help both humans and pets when they’re getting ready to chill, or getting ready to sleep.
A couple of products you might enjoy are CBD Tinctures and CBD Disposable pens, depending on your preference. You can take CBD Tinctures sublingually (under your tongue) while CBD Disposables are CBD Pens that you can vape.
Drink Water or Non-Alcoholic Liquids
If you haven’t tried this before, it’s a good tip for when you’re ready to come back down. Water has a lot of benefits, so it’s no surprise that it can help in this context too. It's recommended to drink some water before you take any form of THC. Also, try to drink more water during and after you take some THC.
Non-alcoholic beverages are also an alternative to water, and you can drink them leisurely when using THC. This can include some relaxing tea, juice, a smoothie, or anything that will help you mellow out.
Try Some Lemon
Lemons are said to counter the effects of THC, if you’re too high it might be worth giving it a shot! Get some lemons and squeeze their juice into a glass, then add some water. Drink the mixture and try to relax. Also, try leaving the lemon peel soaking in water to get more benefits from the lemon. Lemon peel contains D-Limonene which is believed to have a lot of benefits that might be able to help you out.
Shift Your Focus to Other Things
Taking your mind off the fact that you’re really high can help. What are your favorite things to do when you want to relax? Just make sure that those activities don’t involve you having to be aware of your surroundings like operating a vehicle or riding a bike.
For instance, you can turn on your speakers and play some calming music. Also watch your favorite movies to keep you in a light-hearted mood — the funnier, the better! Keep away from anything that could trigger worry or put your attention on the fact that you have consumed too much THC.
If that doesn’t work then you can try and go on a walk around the neighborhood. A few minutes dedicated to walking can help keep you stay calm. Putting your body in motion can reduce blood pressure, alleviate stress, boost your mood, and actively shift your focus from how high you are.
Eat Some Food
In theory, you’re naturally going to get hungry when you’re high. With that in mind, you should also make sure you don’t get high on an empty stomach since it might hit you harder. You don’t need to eat an entire meal before a session, but a light snack could be beneficial. Once you’re high make sure to eat something in order to bring down your high. Also, it can distract you as you’ll be too focused on munching.
Have a Conversation with Your Friend
The key to bring your high down is being distracted so talking to someone could be beneficial. Lets say you live alone, then you can always chat online, join a forum, or checkout our Facebook group - The CBD Team and let everyone know that you’re lit! .
A good way to avoid getting too high is by taking the recommended dosage. However, if you’re sensitive to THC or don’t have a high tolerance then we recommend taking half of the recommended dosage. There are plenty of things you can do to bring your high down which include taking some CBD, distracting yourself by eating food or talking with a friend. Whatever you decide to do is fine as long as you remain calm and take Delta 8 responsibly.
