Sometimes you overdo it. Hey, it’s okay, It happens to the best of us. Even us veteran stoners do it from time to time. When you do eat too many edibles, it’s important that you know how to handle yourself. Luckily, we veteran stoners have a few tricks up our sleeves. So, what do you do when you’ve had too many edibles?
First and foremost, what you need to do is calm down. Panicking and freaking out is not doing yourself any favors. Take a deep breath. Now take another one. Continue doing that until you feel cool and calm. You’re still gonna feel messed up, but you’ll feel a lot more in control. Trust me, this will help. Throw all of your concentration into it. Now don’t you feel better? Good!
This Too Shall Pass
The next most important thing you need to do when you eat too many edibles is to keep in mind that this too shall pass. The high is not going to last forever, and when it wears off, you’re going to feel like maybe you wasted all that time being stressed about when the high was going to end. This is why you should try not to focus too much on how long the high is going to last.
Try Taking a Shower
After you’re able to regain your calm and your footing, the next thing you should focus on is trying to sober yourself up a bit. I’m not suggesting that you should completely kill your high, but there’s no harm in trying to taper it off a bit. To my mind, there’s no way that’s more efficient and not to mention relaxing than taking a nice, long, hot shower. A shower will accomplish a couple of different things, such as allowing you the peace and quiet to collect yourself, as well as opening up your pores and allowing them to breathe. This can really help a person who has gotten too high, trust me.
Try to Eat Something and Drink Some Water
If you’ve taken too many edibles and are finding it hard to get a grip on things, one of the quickest and easiest ways to get control of yourself is by simply drinking some water and attempting to eat a small snack like some crackers, or perhaps a slice of toast. Eating something will get your metabolism going and help you sober up a bit. This will be especially handy if you’re in a situation where you’re unable to take a shower, or otherwise escape from the crowd.
Of course, there are other ways to deal if you’ve found that you’ve eaten too many edibles. These just happen to be the most basic tips We’ll get to those other classic stoner hacks another time.
