8 Ways to Sober Up from Being Too High from Weed

Have you ever found yourself in a situation where you've had a bit too much cannabis and are feeling uncomfortably high? It's a common experience, especially for those new to cannabis or trying a new strain with a higher potency. At BestBuds DC, we understand that while cannabis can offer many benefits, it's also important to know how to manage the experience if it becomes too intense. Here are eight effective ways to help sober up from being too high.

1. Don't Panic

First and foremost, remind yourself that this feeling will pass. Cannabis does not cause lethal overdoses, and while you might feel anxious or uncomfortable, these sensations are temporary. Take deep breaths and reassure yourself that everything will be okay.

2. Hydrate

Drinking water or juice can help you stay hydrated and feel a bit more grounded. Avoid alcohol or caffeine, as they can increase THC blood concentrations and potentially amplify the effects of cannabis.

3. Peppercorn Trick

Chewing on a few black peppercorns or sniffing them can provide immediate relief for cannabis-induced anxiety or paranoia. Caryophyllene, a terpene found in black pepper, binds to the same cannabinoid receptors in the brain as THC, offering a calming effect.

4. Get Some Fresh Air

If you can, step outside for a few minutes. Fresh air and a change of scenery can do wonders. A gentle walk can also help your body metabolize the THC faster and distract your mind from the high.

5. Try CBD

If you have CBD on hand, consider taking some. CBD can counteract the psychoactive effects of THC and help reduce anxiety and paranoia. It's a handy remedy for those times when you've overindulged in THC-rich cannabis.

6. Eat a Healthy Snack

Eating can help you sober up. Opt for a healthy snack like fruits or nuts. Food can not only distract you but also help regulate your blood sugar levels, contributing to a more balanced feeling.

7. Stay Engaged

Engage in a simple, soothing activity. Listening to your favorite music, watching a light-hearted show, coloring, or doing puzzles can help shift your focus away from the high and keep your mind occupied.

8. Take a Nap

If all else fails and you're in a safe place to do so, try taking a nap. Sleep is a great way to pass the time quickly and reduce the intensity of your high. You'll likely wake up feeling much more like yourself.
