Whether your CBD product was mislabeled or you ate one too many cookies, it’s easy to get so high that you need a way to sober up from weed.
So many products, both licensed and unlicensed, are mislabeled or not tested properly. Nearly 60% of CBD product labels don’t contain accurate potency information. That could mean you’re either paying $100 for carrier oil with no CBD at all, or you’re getting a product that actually contains high levels of THC.
Both situations are not ideal. They result in harm to your wallet, your health, and your peace of mind. So if you find yourself in a situation in which you’re too high and need to know how to sober up from weed, what can you do?
In this article, we’ll see what the science says about it. Keep reading to learn more.
How to Sober Up From Weed
Here’s the truth: not enough research exists to tout any miracle cure for sobering up from weed. The only reliable thing that will help you sober up from a weed high is time and patience.
That being said, there are ways to minimize the harm of getting too high. Let’s get into it.
1. Seek Medical Attention
If you’re feeling anxious or panicked about your health, remember that it is technically virtually impossible to die of a marijuana overdose.
However, that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t seek medical attention if you are feeling extremely unwell after consuming too much cannabis. Toxins, contaminants, and delta-8 are some dangers that could alter the high you are feeling.
Medical professionals are there to help you. There are many laws governing the disclosure of patient information that protect you. This means healthcare workers should not contact police about your drug use, even if you are in a state where recreational cannabis is illegal.
If you are too high or feeling unwell, please seek immediate medical attention. Hospitals are the safest place to wait out a bad high. They will be able to monitor your symptoms and take immediate action if they suspect you are in danger.
2. Find a Safe Place
If you get too high in a public place and need to sober up from weed, a good first step is to find a safe place. Studies have found that those who consume cannabis regularly are more inclined to make poor decisions. This could put you at an increased risk of harm if you are in a public space.
Go home, or if you are worried about being alone, contact a friend or family member. It goes without saying but never drive to a new location. Operating a vehicle while high on weed places yourself and others in harm’s way. Call a friend, a Lyft, or take a bus.
3. Eat, Drink Water, and Sleep
When you find yourself in a safe place, the best thing to do is to take care of your basic needs and wait it out. If you’ve consumed edibles, then eating could help your body digest the edible cannabis more slowly. This could result in a longer but less intense high.
The only way to get sober after smoking too much weed is by waiting. Luckily, a weed high typically lasts between 1-3 hours.
How to Avoid Getting Too High on Weed
The best way to avoid getting too stoned is by purchasing low-dose THC products from a licensed dispensary or manufacturer. This is unfortunately quite difficult in the current market because of the lack of accountability and regulation.
The only way to find high-quality, safe cannabis products is by shopping from brands that publish unaltered, accurate, and up-to-date information lab report information on their website. These brands must follow rigorous quality control processes that ensure uniformity and consistency in delivering safety and quality to their customers.
Lab reports should outline details about potency, contaminants, and strain information that will help you know exactly what you’re purchasing and consuming.
Without this information, you are completely in the dark about what you are consuming.
