Have you ever got to the point where you thought: ‘Oh no, I’m too high?’ while walking out of a coffeeshops in Amsterdam?’ Well, this one’s for you.
Whether the edible was too strong or inhaled a bit too deeply, or your tolerance is low, getting too high isn’t nice. There are many ways it can happen, but we all know that when it does, it has the power to diminish your love for weed. In case you don’t wanna do that and enjoy the benefits of weed, here’s how to sober up when high:
How long does it take to sober up after getting high in the first place?
How long your high lasts depends on numerous factors such as: how did you consume it, how much did you consume, and are you highly tolerant of weed, which is a very individual factor. Usually, the more potent weed is, the longer the effect will last.
Concentrates in the form of distilled oils pertain the longest, while edibles usually last longer than smoking. On the other hand, a newbie smoker’s effect will last longer than a regular stoner.
On average, cannabis lasts somewhere between half an hour and 2 hours, although some have lingering effects later on.
Yet, no matter how long it lasts, here’s how to get rid of it.
You are fine. Take a deep breath and try to relax and distract yourself. Remember that this will not last forever and it will be over soon. Sit back and try to relax.
Eat snacks and drink water
Okay, we know that the first piece of advice is not really good, so here’s a better one – snack and drink up. Water, juice, or even tea is a good idea. Weed dries out the mouth, so being hydrated is really important. Weed is known to cause the munchies as well. If you wanna feel more grounded and try to have a better body-mind connection, while smoking in one of the best coffeeshops in Amsterdam then try snacking a bit of food, nuts, or cheese.
This will help you distract yourself, and focusing on such a minuscule task as chewing and swallowing or sipping is a great way to do it.
The black pepper trick
One of the possible side-effects of weed is paranoia and anxiety. But, a simple household item such as black pepper can save you from an unpleasant high. Whether you choose to sniff it or chew on a couple of peppercorns, this will almost immediately make you feel better. This trick is so good that even Neil Young swears by it!
To sum up, getting too high at coffeeshops in Amsterdam can be troublesome, but distracting yourself and drinking or eating may calm you down. It’s important to avoid caffeine or alcohol at this time since it can cause an increase in THC in the blood, which isn’t good. Remember to stay calm and that this too shall pass.
