Oops – Too High For Comfort

Recreation & Sports Blog

If you use medical marijuana to soothe your ailments, you may occasionally run into the problem of feeling "too high" for your personal comfort. Edibles and oral forms of cannabis can take a while to kick in, but once it does, all of a sudden, you need to come down a bit to function the way that you need to. Here, you'll find a few tips that'll help you calm bring the buzz down to where you need it to be.

Just Breathe

Get yourself someplace quiet, sit down and just breathe—you are not going to die! If you panic, you may feel like your heart is going to explode, but that's just your thoughts sending your body into a panic attack. Sit, breathe, and stay contained in a quiet environment. It will be OK.

Drink Water

Don't reach for your coffee or caffeinated drink—stick with water. Water will help to combat the dry mouth and give you something to do and something to focus on other than the fact that you're just too buzzed. Take a sip, count to three, take another sip, count to four, and so on. This process slows your mind down a bit and gives it enough of a distraction to ease your feelings of panic.

No Alcohol!

Alcoholic beverages are never the answer to feeling too buzzed; in fact, it could make things much worse. The alcohol can cause the concentrations of THC in your bloodstream to increase causing the effects of the marijuana to increase, rather than decrease.

Call a Friend

Sometimes, all you need to do is give yourself someone to talk to. If you're carrying on a conversation, you're not sitting there dwelling on the fact that you're too high. It could actually make the buzz a little more fun for you—your anxiety may turn into giggles and relaxation.

Talk with the Professionals at the Dispensary

When you're at the cannabis dispensary, make sure that you discuss the strength of each type of cannabis, how much should be used and what effects it will have. If anxiety is an issue, let them know so that they can suggest a strain that will sooth your anxiety instead of making it worse.

There is a strain of cannabis that'll provide you with the relief that you need. Take it slow and talk over all of your options with the professionals before you discount the benefits because of a bad experience.

A Pleasure Boat

When I was a child, I remember the time I shared with a special uncle fondly. During the summer, he would take me fishing at my family’s pond. Sometimes, we would fish quietly at the dock. He would occasionally steer me around the pond in a little boat. A few days ago, I found out that I will inherit the family pond. I’m extremely excited about the possibility of purchasing a boat to ride around in with my future kids. On this blog, you will learn how to shop for the perfect pleasure boat for a small body of water. Enjoy!
