Most of us have unfortunately been there before. Maybe it is your first time using a bong, dabbing, or vaping an unexpectedly and particularly strong concentrate and now you feel like you’re going to lose your mind. Enter the dreaded combo of anxiety and paranoia that turn what should be a relaxing and enjoyable activity into a living hell. Before you rush out to the ER or call 911, check out these useful tips for how to recover from a strong high. These will hopefully help you or fellow enthusiasts come down from being more high than they are able to handle in a relatively short amount of time. While a few may seem like common sense such as drinking water or coffee, exercising, or taking a shower, using a high CBD strain to counteract the current effects can be a bit counter intuitive.
Be sure to follow the link below for a few more tips that will help you recover from highs that get a little out of hand!
1. Eat Some Lemon
Apparently, lemons contain certain terpenes that tend to produce calming effects that can help counteract the psychoactive effects of THC.
In particular, limonene is a powerful non-stimulatory terpene that is prevalent in many citrus fruits, but especially in lemons.
To get limonene into your body so it can start calming you down, you can simply eat some lemon. Alternatively, you can squeeze some lemon juice into water, tea, or any other beverage.
But, because limonene is most concentrated in the lemon peel, you should try to get either some pulp or rind into your system. Try zesting a lemon into something you’re eating or drinking for a big limonene boost. Finally, you can also inhale or consume some good, quality lemon essential oils.
