Many people who studied Greek mythology in high school have heard the story of Icarus, the boy who flew too close to the sun.
In the tale, Icarus tried to escape the Labyrinth using wax wings, but he flew too high, the wax melted and Icarus plummeted into the ocean.
Similarly, anyone who has ingested marijuana products for a number of years has, at least once, been way too high for comfort. Most people in this predicament believe that waiting it out is the only action one can take to counteract the paranoia, sweats, and other challenges that come along with too much Mary Jane.
In truth, there are known remedies for an over abundance of THC in your system, here are some you can try.
1. Well Hello There, CBD
It may sound crazy to use marijuana to counteract the effects of too much marijuana but the truth is, CBD works. Cannabidiol (aka CBD) is a single but powerful compound in cannabis that is known for its anti-anxiety, anti-depression qualities. If your mind is racing because of too much THC, taking a few puffs of an all CBD vape pen, or putting some CBD oil under your tongue just might do the trick.
2. Water or Juice
A cold, non-caffeinated, non-alcoholic beverage in order to stay hydrated is also an effective way of intentionally harshing your buzz. First, the beverage combats cotton-mouth and drinking in general, especially ice-cold drinks, are known to dull the effects.
3. Black Peppercorns
It’s not just the condiment that takes a backseat to salt on the restaurant table, pepper is actually a fascinating treatment for an out of control high.
Studies show that when smelling or chewing on pepper, the aroma of the spice is processed by the same receptors in the brain that handle marijuana. When combined, the smell of the pepper provides a sense of calm and euphoria.
The black pepper treatment has been described as instantaneous.
4. Go For a Walk
First and foremost, if you decide to go for a walk when you are too high, remember to stay within your familiar surroundings. Try a walk around the block as opposed to walking in a new area where you are bound to get lost.
The process of walking will get your blood pumping and can also take your mind off the thought-racing qualities that can go along with an overabundance of ganja.
If you are familiar with how to meditate, then start as soon as you think you’ve had too much. Meditating is a fabulous way to calm the body and the mind and acts as a comfortable space while you wait-out the effects.
5. Chill Out Dude
Sometimes just lying down and potentially falling asleep is just what the doctor ordered. If it’s a nice day outside for example, find a hammock, lie on the grass or on a picnic table. Anything that makes you horizontal and stationary and you may just feel better sooner.
7. Know Your Limit, Play Within It
Although getting too high happens to all of us, especially when doing edibles or concentrates, knowing your optimal amount of tolerance is the best way to have a comfortable experience. Once you know you’re at your comfortable limit, leave it for a while and then see if you’d like to do more.
So if you’re planning to strap on those wax wings tonight, just remember not to fly too close to the sun or too low to the ocean, and you will have a healthy cannabis experience that is worthy of your time and energy.
