Despite the forgiving safety profile of cannabis specifically THCtoo much of it can lead to intense side effects such as anxiety, nausea, loss of balance, increased heart rate, emotional disturbance, and more. New users and people with certain health conditions are particularly vulnerable. However, it is important to remember nobody has ever died from a cannabis overdose although heart issues for some people are a valid concern. If you like cannabis, greening out is the consequence from too much of a good thing. But exactly what is it? CB1 receptors primarily exist in the central nervous system brain and spinal cordwhile Cb2 receptors are mainly found throughout the body.
These same receptors work directly or indirectly with phytocannabinoids external cannabinoids like THC. This is how THC has physical and mental effects. The symptoms are mostly obvious, although there is some overlap between being really high and greening out. But what separates greening out is that the effects become too intense. Cannabis is famous for its ability to help with nausea. That lightheaded feeling might throw you off balance a bit - literally and figuratively.
But when you green out, the dizziness goes beyond that manageable light-headedness. Try lying down or closing your eyes. This can lead to intrusive, disturbing thoughts. If you live in a state where cannabis is illegal, the fear of being caught can really stoke the flames of paranoia. You may also get jumpy, being more reactive to movement or sounds. You might be used to it. A lot of people use cannabis to combat anxiety, be it isolated or chronic.
But anxiety and weed are a balancing act. Some chemovars just make you feel anxious. If you feel extremely nervous after consuming a lot of weed, cut yourself off right away. THC and increased heart rate go hand-in-hand, but too much THC can cause some serious problems in the cardiovascular department.
Drowsiness is easily one of the most common side effects from using cannabis. After all, its sedative nature has been a life-saver for many people with insomnia and other sleep disorders. Of course, not all chemovars make you drowsy. With greening out, that drowsiness can get really severe. This is probably why long-term cannabis use can cause gum disease, which has been noted in multiple studies including one from from Columbia University.
Drink plenty of water to keep your mouth from getting too dry. At this point, you might wonder if THC is dangerous. The answer to that question is complicated. No recorded deaths have been reported as a result of too much THC. But as we mentioned earlier, some of the symptoms from greening out could lead to harmful complications. People with heart problems could be at risk, since THC is known to increase heart rate, forcing the heart to work harder.
One year-old Canadian man with heart disease learned this lesson the hard way in after buying an illegal cannabis lollipop containing 90mg of THC. Again, a healthy person might have no issue dealing with rapid heart rate or high blood pressure, but the man in question experienced chest pains, trouble breathing, and hallucinations.
Anxiety alone is unpleasant, but people with an anxiety disorder are particularly vulnerable during a greenout. Cannabis and anxiety have a delicate relationship. Low doses 7. If you have anxiety and use weed medically or recreationally, keep your dose as low as possible. Paranoia is also a form of anxious thoughtfurther adding another layer to your symptoms. Upset stomach is a classic greenout .
Keep tabs on how you feel and look for s of dehydrationlike dry mouth, dry lips, and strong thirst. Ultimately, it comes down to being cautious to avoid biting off more THC than you can chew. A lot of people like edibles for their variety and extended effects. The problem is that greening out on edibles is easy to do, but hard to fix. Edibles take time, so you could consume 1,mg of THC and not know until much later. The delayed effects of edibles make it hard to tell how much you need.
The only way to know is through gradual experimentation. Chris Emerson recommends 3mg to start. Wait 30 to 90 minutes for the edibles to take effect, although it could take even longer. Some people have to wait a full day before trying again. Re-dosing too quickly is a common challenge with edible cannabis. Edibles can creep up on you and seem weak at first, then feel considerably stronger. Experience or lack thereof also determines tolerance. New users need to be extra careful and avoid overdoing it with high-THC products. If you do green out, being around others will help reduce symptoms like anxiety or paranoia because the sense of immediate help has a calming effect.
Conversely, some people do prefer to be left alone when greening out. This is a pretty straightforward rule. Greening out happens when you take in more THC than your body can tolerate. The key to preventing that is to stay as far away from that threshold as possible. Take two or three puffs and see how you feel after ten minutes then try more if necessary. The next few hours are going to be physically and mentally rough to some degree.
Terpenes - oily compounds found throughout the plant kingdom - play a huge part in the recreational and medical effects of cannabis. These terpenes give plants their distinct tastes and smells, along with different applications in herbal medicine. When dealing with a greenout, beta-caryophyllene and limonene are terpenes you want to have on hand - the good news is you likely do. Beta-caryophyllene and limonene are found in black peppercorn and lemon respectively.
Both are also common in many cannabis chemovars. These terpenes are known to help reduce anxiety and paranoia from being too high.
To get some quick caryophyllene, just chew a few peppercorn balls. You can easily consume limonene by eating a few lemon slices or drinking lemon juice. Dry mouth is a common side effect for many cannabis chemovars, especially if you green out. Water is usually the g0-to, since every house has access to it, but juice and herbal tea little to no caffeine will work as well. Keep some CBD on hand. You can find hemp-derived oils and other ingestible forms of CBD.
There are plenty of online vendors and health food stores that specialize in these products. Use cold water if you feel overheated. Hopefully you took the advice to use weed with friends. Tell them you feel sick or might be greening out. Stay in touch on the phone or in text until you feel comfortable enough to power through the ordeal on your own. Sometimes, getting up and moving somewhere else can really help take the edge off.
Try going outside for a few minutes.
The fresh air will get you away from any lingering weed smell and might just give your senses a bit of a jumpstart. Try and put on a funny or low-key movie to help keep your mind busy. The negative, intrusive thoughts zipping through your head can make the situation feel ten times worse.
It may be difficult to understand at the time, but the issue is temporary and will wear off. Sometimes, the key to a milder greenout comes from positive thinking. Everything you hear, see, or think about is just the consequence of too much weed. Once you understand this, the whole experience will be a lot easier.
