How to Come Down from a High When You are Smoking Too Much Weed?

Recommended Posts

If you use marijuana for recreational or medical purposes, you must never overuse or overindulge. Smoking or using too much weed can lead to severe effects. Too much is always not good. Here are ways on how to come down from a high when you have smoked too much marijuana.

Recovering from low blood sugar: One of the most common effects of smoking too much weed is low blood sugar. THC in marijuana causes a plunge in blood sugar levels and this could lead to dizziness, cold and clammy skin and even loss of consciousness. If you had too much weed and you feel close to passing out then take a breath of fresh air. Get out of the room and just relax. Drink something sugary to increase sugar levels. After feeling better, you can eat a light meal. Usually, a person who passes out will recover in a short while. Provide a safe environment. As soon as the person recovers, give him a sugary drink and a light meal as soon as he can eat.

Removing red and dry eyes: One of the most common side effects of marijuana is having red and dry eyes. Red eyes are due to the effects of THC. This compound causes increase blood flow to the entire body even in the small blood vessels of the eyes causing red eyes. The eye area could also feel warm due to the increase in blood flow and this causes dryness of the area.

You can relieve red eyes and dry eyes by using eye drops. You can also splash cold water on your face to reduce redness and discomfort. Sometimes, taking a nap or sleep can help. You can wear sunglasses if you want to hide your red eyes.

CBD is nice to use for this too.

 

a tea with CBD tincture in it helps balance out the high. 

or place drops under your tongue. 

or have CBD strain of flower to smoke along with your high THC herb. cannatonic is a high CBD strain that smells good and tastes good too. 

vape some CBD oil too. 

 

i really like CBD.

I find orange juice kills a heavy buzz not sure why, I figure it's the vitamin C.

I think if you looked into it you'll find it's the sugar in the juice that helps as pot causes blood sugar levels to drop.  That's why it gives us the munchies too as most people feel hungry when levels drop.

 

As a hypoglycemic I feel the effects of low blood sugar earlier than most people.  While testing my levels over a couple of months I found that I would be feeling shaky and a bit nauseous around 4.5 when normal fasting levels are 4 - 7.  The diabetic nurse I was dealing with said it was because I was a bit hypoglycemic.  She also said I had no worries about developing diabetes as I had a strong insulin response to high sugar levels.  Good thing as I have a strong sweet tooth.  Especially after a toke! :)

After smoking, I'm drinking coke or Orange juice. A lemonade too might help you go down from being high.

So munchies and red-eye are the severe effects we must watch out for?  2 or so grams a day obviously isn't enough, I want some of what you're having... 😄

I can remember one time in recent history where I had possibly too much... a deep bong hit after two weeks of abstinence...  for about 10 minutes I was dealing with something primal but then it settled down into a nice deep stone.  Damn, almost makes me want to stop for a week or two again just so I can experience that again, heh...  (daily medical user, and my dose is fairly stable / not increasing, so the effects are maybe 10% at most of what a casual user might experience)

And bingo on the CBD.  Most breeders (knowingly or not, mostly unknowingly) have been breeding out the CBD from recreational cannabis because it attenuates the THC high, takes the crazy edge off.  Some people like going a little crazy I guess.  Makes it seem more potent.

funny a guy i know said the same thing to me about CBD. he thinks CBD makes cannabis less potent. i believe the chemicals are in the plant for a reason. CBD and THC are both great. i find i prefer lower levels of THC/CBD. the most recent one i tried was a wonderful indica strain called "CBD the church." it had 7% THC and 11.5% CBD. the high is mellow and relaxing. i went back to the dispensary to get more, i only bought a gram, but they were out. not sure when they will get more. since they didn't have this strain, i picked up one called, "stephen hawking kush".  9%THC and 6% CBD. it is also a wonderful strain. so for me the CBD only makes the cannabis better. 

 

i am finding that i enjoy the strains with a smaller percentage of THC/CBD. .........  though i won't turn down a 18% hit of bubblegum.  🙂

I personally don't seek the edginess of nearly-zero-CBD strains anymore, I'm no longer fooled into thinking they seem more potent.  I like some balance, and for lupus (autoimmune disorder) I have to have some CBD in there anyway, it's not all for the depression/anxiety.  I've found the high (such as it is without doubling my daily amount) is all-round better with decent levels of CBD (at least a whole percent), I've occasionally had access to a 7%/7% THC/CBD strain, or so it claimed, definitely very useful from the lupus perspective but almost too mellow?  Like, that 5-HT1a receptor activation from the CBD is almost too much, I seem to stop learning from mistakes due to not enough emotional memory attached to them, if that makes sense?

Heh, anyway, that's where I seem to be at now... my needs and indeed preferences have slowly shifted around over the years.  Although I do like to mix things up now and then, can be fun and also can be informative, ah, the body seems to be responding better to this strain or that ratio now, etc.  Cheers! 🙂

I have a strain called CD1 Candida, it's supposed to be 15-20% CBD less than 1%THC but the THC feels a bit stronger. I will mix that with other high THC strains depending on how I am feeling, I have another one from Patchgrower, called Pain Killer, which is 10% CBD and 6%THC that works well for my pain, obviously with a name like that lol.

That's the CBD, it takes away all my negative emotions, anxiety, fear, anger. So unless you are getting some positive emotions from your mistakes, they are not going to stay in your memory bank for long, to remind you not to do it again. As a ex psychoanalyst, who used hypnosis, I would have to generate a lot of emotion, and attach it to a new positive suggestion, for it to take root in a client's unconscious mind. The stronger the emotions the more stronger the memory and behavioral pattern connected to it.

Heh, yeah, I do mention the 5-HT1a activation from the CBD... curiously that's one of the receptors that gets blocked by a typical antipsychotic (along with dopamine receptors and 5-HT2a), it's almost as if they're trying to take away all reward from daily life and replace it with pervading shame and guilt with those, one wonders why.  Thing is, CBD has an antipsychotic function too (and lets be honest about why so many people seem to need an antipsychotic, it's either that or go crazy in a broken society), but does it via other routes, doesn't leave a person completely useless, kind of makes sense why the government went and scheduled it, can't have the "troublemakers" demonstrating and voting!

To keep them taking the tablets, and add anti depressants and viagra to the list. Prolonged stress and anxiety, in any form, creates depression and switches off the sex drive, which will vary depending on personality types. Although LabRat is an exception to that rule lol.
