Yo, what’s up? It’s Dan here and I’ma be breaking down the side effects of cannabis edibles and what you can do to dial ’em down. Let me explain.
When you spark up, you know the feeling. That euphoric buzz that comes with the high is one of da dopest things ever. Problem is, when you eat marijuana, the effects aren’t always the same as when you blaze up. You might be feeling them stronger, faster and longer than you want – and they don’t always feel so good.
It’s all cuz of THC, yo. THC is the active ingredient in cannabis that gets you high, and when it’s eaten rather than smoked, it breaks down more slowly – meaning more of it gets into your bloodstream, which can make for an intense experience.
So, how can you dial down the side effects? Well first up it’s important to consider how many milligrams of THC that you’re ingesting in one go. If the dose is too high – or if it’s too strong for your system – you might be feeling some intense side effects like dizziness, nausea and even paranoia. The best advice here is to start with a low dose and take it slow to build up a tolerance before upping your dose.
Next, pay attention to what else is going on in your life at the time. If you’re feeling stressed or anxious about something then the effects of THC could be amplified. So, if possible, try to work through any emotional issues before taking an edible and ensure that your environment is calm and comfortable.
Finally, don’t forget to hydrate! Drinking plenty of fluids helps your body process the THC quicker, meaning the high won’t last as long so it’ll be easier to manage. Not just that but dehydration can also amplify some of those side effects so keep your water handy at all times.
For those who are still struggling with their high after trying out these tips, there are a couple more tricks up our sleeve. Firstly, chewing some fresh ginger helps to reduce nausea while having some black pepper on hand helps alleviate dizziness. And if all else fails then just lay down in a dark room and wait out those feelings until they pass; they always do eventually!
So there you have it – my top tip for dialling down those side effects from eating cannabis. Hopefully by following these steps you can enjoy a pleasant high without all da fuss! Thanks for joining me today y’all, this has been Dan signing off – peace!
