We’ve all had those moments when we find ourselves floating a bit higher than planned, feeling like we’re lost in a whirlwind of euphoria. Maybe you misjudged the edible or puffed when you should have passed… but what goes up must come down, right? If you’re ready to touch back down to Earth and regain your footing, we’ve got your back. Here are some tried-and-true tips to help you get unhigh and grounded in no time.

  1. Don’t Panic:

First and foremost, remember to stay calm. Feeling overwhelmed can be scary, but panicking will only make things worse. Take a deep breath and remind yourself that you’re going to be okay. The effects of cannabis are temporary and will eventually wear off.

  1. Find a Comfortable Environment:

If possible, find a safe and comfortable space to relax in. Whether it’s your bedroom, a cozy couch, or a quiet corner of your home, being in a familiar environment can help ease feelings of anxiety. Dim the lights, put on some calming music, and make yourself comfortable –  this is your time for self-care. 

  1. 🚰Hydrate and Nourish Yourself:

One of the most important things you can do if you’ve smoked too much weed is to stay hydrated. Drink plenty of water to help flush the THC out of your system and alleviate dry mouth. Snacking on healthy foods like fruits, nuts, or crackers can also help replenish your energy levels and distract you from any discomfort.

  1. Distract Yourself:

Keeping your mind occupied can help take your focus away from feeling too high. Watch a funny movie, listen to your favorite music, or engage in a calming activity like drawing or coloring. Talking to a friend or loved one can also provide reassurance and support.

  1. Take a Walk or Get Some Fresh Air:

If you’re feeling up to it, a change of scenery can work wonders. Taking a short walk outside or simply stepping out onto your balcony can help clear your head and provide a sense of calm. Just be sure to stay safe and avoid any potentially dangerous situations, especially if you’re feeling disoriented.

  1. Consider CBD:

CBD, or cannabidiol, is a non-intoxicating compound found in cannabis that has been shown to have calming and anti-anxiety effects. If you have access to CBD products, taking some CBD oil or a CBD-infused edible may help counteract the psychoactive effects of THC and bring you back to a more manageable level of highness.

  1. Know When to Seek Help:

In most cases, the effects of smoking too much weed will subside on their own with time. However, if you’re experiencing severe distress or symptoms like rapid heart rate, severe paranoia, or hallucinations, it’s important to seek medical attention immediately. Don’t hesitate to call emergency services or ask a trusted friend or family member for help if you need it.
