How To Recover From Edibles
If you have overconsumed cannabis edibles and are experiencing negative effects, there are a few things you can try to help reduce the severity of your symptoms. Let’s have a look at some way how to recover from edibles:
- Stay hydrated: Drinking water can help flush the THC (the psychoactive compound in cannabis) out of your system more quickly.
- Eat some food: Consuming a small snack, especially something that is high in protein or fat, can help to soak up some of the THC in your system and reduce the intensity of your symptoms.
- Get some rest: Taking a nap or getting a good night’s sleep can help your body process the THC more efficiently and reduce the severity of your symptoms.
- Wait it out: If you are experiencing negative effects from consuming too many edibles, the most effective thing you can do is simply wait it out. The effects of edibles can last several hours, so it’s important to be patient and give your body time to metabolize the THC.
- Avoid activities that could be dangerous: If you are feeling impaired after consuming edibles, it’s important to avoid activities that could be dangerous, such as driving or operating heavy machinery.
What Are Edibles?
Before we discuss how to recover from edibles, let’s understand what edibles are and do. Edibles are a form of cannabis that are consumed orally, rather than being smoked or vaporized. They are made by infusing food or drink with cannabis, either through the use of cannabis-infused oils or by adding ground-up cannabis to the recipe. Edibles can come in many different forms, including baked goods like cookies or brownies, candies, and drinks.
The effects of edibles can vary depending on a number of factors, including the type of edible, the strain of cannabis used, and the individual’s metabolism and tolerance to THC (the psychoactive compound in cannabis). Edibles typically take longer to take effect than other forms of cannabis, as they must be digested and metabolized by the body before the THC is absorbed. The effects of edibles can last for several hours and are often more potent than the effects of smoking or vaporizing cannabis.
It’s important to be cautious when consuming edibles, as it is easy to overconsume and experience negative effects. It is also important to follow all local laws and regulations regarding the use and possession of cannabis, as it is still illegal in many places.
It’s also important to remember that if you are experiencing severe or prolonged negative effects from consuming edibles, you should seek medical attention. In rare cases, overconsumption of edibles can lead to serious or life-threatening symptoms.
