Too High? Try this.

According to the National Cancer Institute, you can’t die from a cannabis overdose “because cannabinoid receptors, unlike opioid receptors, are not located in the brainstem areas controlling respiration, so lethal overdoses from cannabis and cannabinoids do not occur.”

There are things you can do according to Greenstate’s What to Do When You Are Too High: A Beginners Guide. Remember the feeling will go away, but in the meantime try these plant medicine remedies:

  • Consume Citrus: put a few lemon wedges in your mouth and suck the juice. Citrus fruit calms THC-induced anxiety by increasing serotonin in the brain.

  • Eat Black Peppercorn: chew, sniff, or shake into a glass of water and swallow. Peppercorn subdues the psychoactive effects of THC. 

  • Consume CBD: it counteracts the effects of THC.

  • Try UNDOO™:  Our body endogenously produces olivetolic acid – which is a part of our endocannabinoid system that is our natural clearing mechanism. Patent pending UNDOO™ softgel capsules are designed to ease the side effects of over consuming cannabis using a strong blend of olivetolic acid. The capsules can also be used to help with a THC tolerance reset. 

Try starting in small doses when using cannabis, or keep these tips in mind in case you accidentally consume too much.
