Dealing with the after affects of over consuming cannabis is not fun and can be scary if you aren't aware of what's going to happen. The number one thing you need to remember is to stay calm. Over consuming straight cannabis is not lethal. Here at Cloud Cat, we are not medical professionals nor are we in the habit of giving out medical advice, but below are some suggestions that we have used and has worked pretty well for reducing the effect of cannabis in case you accidentally over do it. 

1. Stay Calm: Again, I said it before and it's always easier said than done, but stay calm. It's gonna be a few hours.

2. Have some lemon or black pepper: Lemon and black pepper are known to contain specific terpenes that can help mitigate the effects of excessive cannabis consumption. Limonene, a terpene found in lemon, is believed to have anxiety-reducing properties, while beta-caryophyllene, found in black pepper, interacts with the endocannabinoid system to potentially alleviate some of the discomfort. Consider chewing on a slice of lemon, or drink a real lemonade. Also, put some black pepper on a snack.

3. Have some CBD: CBD (cannabidiol), another compound found in the cannabis plant, help counteract the psychoactive effects of THC and promote relaxation. CBD is available in various forms, such as tinctures, edibles, oils and smokables. If you have access to CBD products, consuming them might help bring a sense of balance and calmness during an overwhelming cannabis experience. Keep in mind if you smoke CBD, you will feel the effects quicker than if you eat it. 

4. Eat something: Have a snack like some chips or crackers or a sandwich (or whatever). Eat food. It will help bring you down from your high.  

5. Wait it out: Lay down and take a nap; sit on the couch and put on a movie; find something to color or play a game to occupy your mind. It will help pass the time. 

Excessive cannabis consumption can be an unsettling experience, but there are various strategies to help alleviate the discomfort and bring balance back to your body and mind. From recognizing the signs of overconsumption to utilizing natural remedies like lemon, black pepper, and CBD, along with taking care of yourself through relaxation techniques, rest, and distraction, you can navigate through the situation with greater ease. Remember, moderation is key, and learning from this experience can help you make more informed choices about your cannabis consumption in the future. I hope this helped.
