Smokin’ weed has one major effect: it gets you high. But different folks react differently to weed, and everybody’s body is different with its own central nervous system.

When you take too much THC or get higher than your tolerance level, your muscles start movin’ around without your control. That’s what we call twitching. Ain’t no need to worry or panic when this happens cuz it’s a common thing that happens to most cannabis users. But this only applies to people with normal health conditions.

If you got any underlying health conditions and are feelin’ discomfort and twitchin’ too much (which ain’t normal), then you gotta go see a doctor and get professional help. Although in most cases, twitching or cannabis shakes happen cuz of higher doses of cannabis strains.

1. Consumed Too Much THC

The first and most common reason behind twitchin’ is smoking too much weed which leads to an overdose of THC in your body. This causes twitching and can make you feel cold too.

2. Anxiety

Another reason why you might be getting tremors is that you may be feeling paranoid or anxious. It could be related to the dose of THC because some people aren’t tolerant of higher THC levels which can lead to anxiety and twitching.

3. Overstimulation

Being overstimulated is another reason why people feel twitching after smokin’ weed. Some folks add tobacco to their joints to get a more intense high, but this overstimulation releases high dopamine levels that stimulate the nervous system leading to anxiety and twitching.

4. Cold Environment

When you consume THC, your body temperature drops slightly leading to shivering or coldness which is known as THC-induced hypothermia. Due to this coldness, your body might start twitching or shaking uncontrollably.

Other reasons like alcohol withdrawal or serious health conditions combined with the consumption of marijuana might cause weed shakes too.

How Long Do Weed Shakes Last?

Now that y’all know why you be twitching after smokin’ weed, the next question is how long does it last? Don’t even stress cuz it’s just a few minutes. About 15-30 minutes if you been smokin’ or sharing a bong with your homies. If you had edibles though, then it might take longer.

But don’t worry, I got some proven solutions for y’all.

How To Avoid Cannabis Shakes Quickly

Although there’s nothing to worry about when it comes to weed shakes, there are certain solutions that can relieve y’all from it:

1. Don’t Panic; Cannabis Shakes Fade Away Within 20-30 Minutes

If it’s your first time experiencing such a thing, don’t panic cuz everything will be fine within a few minutes. Panicking will only make things worse so stay calm and wait for the effects of THC to fade away within 20-30 minutes if you smoke weed.

2. Change Your Environment

If you’re at a party with loud music and people everywhere that make ya anxious, then adjust yourself to the environment that suits ya best. Change your environment and go somewhere comfortable where you can relax.

3. Breathing Exercise

When something uncommon happens with your body, your breathing pattern changes too, so try breathing exercises like deep breaths and calmness in your mind that can help relax muscle twitching.

4. Distract Yourself

Tobacco and joints are both central nervous system stimulants that cause involuntary muscle spasms which can fade away within a few minutes but until then try distracting yourself from panicking.

5. Switch Strains

Some cannabis strains may not suit yer body type even though they have much THC in them so try switching strain and see if that helps ya.

6. CBD

CBD is the antidote to THC that reduces its effects on ya like reducing anxiety so if ya feel overwhelmed by the extreme dose of THC then CBD oil or products can help reduce the psychoactive effects of THC.

Remember: If you’ve got alarming symptoms for any reason (even health conditions) that you can’t control then seek a doctor immediately.
