How To Recover From Edibles

First, many of us have eaten too many edibles or not realized how strong they were until too late. You will be ok; take some deep breaths and follow the steps on how to recover from edibles.


How To Recover From Edibles

1. Stay calm when feeling too high

One of the most important things you can do when you feel like the edibles are taking over is to stay calm and remind yourself that you will be okay. Anxiety can worsen the effects of edibles, so try to relax as much as possible. Try to calm your mind, sit quietly, or go out into nature.

2. Drink water regularly

Drinking water can help to flush the THC out of your system more quickly and can also help to alleviate some of the discomfort associated with overconsumption. Grab a jug of water, or keep filling your glass when empty. Avoid drinking too much water at a time; take it slow and constantly sip your water.

3. Eat something high in fat

Consuming food, especially something high in fat like peanut butter or avocado, can help to absorb some of the THC and reduce the intensity of the high.

4. Let yourself rest

It’s important to give your body time to recover, so try to rest and take it easy. Find a comfy couch to lay on, or lie on your bed and turn on some soothing music if you are home.

5. Avoid caffeine and alcohol while high

Caffeine and alcohol can exacerbate the effects of THC, so it’s best to avoid these substances until you’ve fully recovered. Also, watch out for tea if you want that instead. Make sure the tea is caffeine-free because a lot of teas have just as much caffeine as coffee does.
