What To Do If You’re Too High

INTRO: Marijuana can be used to relax, but too much of a good thing can quickly turn into a nightmare trip down sky-high road. 

Accidentally getting too high is well-trodden territory, many people have walked this path, you are not alone! Keep reading this article for tips on what to do if you find yourself accidentally, uncomfortably, too high. 

The Symptoms 

If you’re here, you are probably too high. But just to be sure, check through this list of common too-high symptoms to see if you can relate. 

How Did This Happen?

Getting too high is easy to do. 

Maybe you used a powerful new smoking device that is unfamiliar to you. Perhaps you encountered a particularly strong strain, or maybe this is your first time getting high. 

However you got too high, welcome! But also, sorry for the wrecked vibe. Let’s get you feeling better.

Oh, and be sure not to drive in this state. 

Feeling Okay Again

The number one best thing of all time to do when you feel too high is:

Go to the bathroom. 

It is here in the bathroom that you can splash a little bit of water on your eyes and in your mouth. Take a moment to breathe. Now, develop a plan. 

If you can’t go to the bathroom, going somewhere you can be alone is a close second. 

What do you need?

Usually one of the more immediate needs of someone who got accidentally too stoned is a glass of water. Once water is achieved, you may want to get a breath of fresh air.

If you have been drinking alcohol, be sure to stop. You DEFINITELY don’t want to risk getting your high crossfaded by also being drunk.

If you are at home or at a friend's house, it might be nice for you to lay down. It doesn’t have to be an hours-long snooze fest, sometimes even just a 15 minute power-rest can do wonders.

A distraction like music or tv could be helpful, but if you are so high that you just want to bask in the silence, more power to you.  

If none of these suggestions are doing it for you, try this odd suggestion.

Chew on three or four whole peppercorns. The terpenes in the peppercorns will help bring you back to Earth and is a guaranteed last line of sobriety defense, according to famous folk music artist, Neil Young.

Is This Forever?

Well, nothing is forever. 

One of the best things you can do is to set your sights on something good to eat. A snack or some juice could help to revive you if you are experiencing low blood sugar. 

If you are unable to lay down because you have the spins, take a bit of wisdom from the movie Frances, Ha and lay down with one foot on the floor to keep you grounded. 

Usually these terrible spurts of being too high don’t last for more than 20 minutes, and a typical length of time to be high is generally 2-4 hours depending on the amount of weed used. 

In Conclusion 

You’re gonna be fine, kid! Keep breathing, whisper to yourself, “I am strong” and pretty soon you will feel strong again. 

Be sure to take notice of the amount of cannabis that got you feeling this way so that in the future you don’t accidentally stumble upon this feeling again.
