Cannabis flower and variations have been lingering around the world for decades now, and more and more individuals begin to experiment with it. With that comes an individual’s tolerance to this substance. There are many factors that go into determining one’s tolerance levels. Body weight, age, height, ethnicity and much more. It is often easy to get confused on how marijuana affects your system, and Bud Cans is here to break down why you feel the way you do. In this blog, you can read up about how your tolerance works and what you can do if you exceed your limits.
Is It Possible To Really Have Too Much Weed?
The answer is an unfortunate yes. Whether you’re a novice smoker, a cannabis connoisseur, or a veteran marijuana consumer; sooner or later you’re likely going to have a ‘bad trip’ that can mess with your mind and body enough to make you feel uncomfortable. As much as we dislike admitting it, we’ve all been there, and it’s not the best feeling in the world.
Allow us to get one thing straight before we go further: regardless of how much weed one consumes, it is impossible to overdose and die. It’s possible to die from consuming another substance during or after smoking weed, but just marijuana itself is never going to kill you. Unlike opioid receptors, cannabinoid receptors are not located in the brainstem areas controlling respiration, it is impossible to have a lethal overdose from cannabis. However, it is best to avoid any unpleasant experiences associated with having too much.
Next Comes The Question: How Much Is Too Much?
If you’re more of a newbie, it’s good to start off with small portions, and not to mix weed with any other substances such as alcohol. Then, once you start to feel out your tolerance levels, you’ll get a better grasp of how much weed your system can process before it starts feeling unpleasant.
What If I Accidentally Overdid It?
As easy as it is to avoid, sometimes we catch ourselves accidentally overdoing our limit and become astronomically baked. What do you do now if it feels too uncomfortable? Are there any ways to escape?
The most important part of being too high is to remain calm and make yourself as comfortable as possible. Panicking will never help your cause, so take deep breaths and relax to the fullest. Constantly reminding yourself that the experience will eventually come to an end is the best way to cope with overdoing it. Keep yourself hydrated and nourished with snacks and throw on some netflix, before you know it you’ll tumble back down to an acceptable high.
Additionally, If you have any CBD around, consider taking some, as cannabidiol can lessen the effects of THC intoxication. However, make sure that it’s pure CBD – you wouldn’t want to take something with 10% CBD and 90% THC at a time like this.
Few other things you can try while waiting for the high to die down include the following:
- Take a stroll outside
- Take a warm shower
- Try some sugar
- Take a nap
While the experience can potentially be one you’d like to forget, if you follow the above suggestions, you can gain a better understanding of your tolerance and prevent overdoing yourself. Just keep calm and try out small things you would regularly do in your daily routine.
