5 Tips From Your Denver Dispensary to Tame That Too-Intense High

May 29, 2019

You’ve smoked for a while and have an idea of how marijuana from the best dispensary in Denver hits you. But that doesn’t mean your experiences will always be consistent. New strains, products, and even different smoking devices can change the way you experience your high. Even experienced users can end up feeling the strange sensation of being “too high.” So, what can you do? Should you just ride it out? Before you panic, try these simple tips to help you tame your too-intense high.

Start with CBD
THC is the psychoactive component of cannabis that gives you the high. And the more THC the products have, the easier it is to get super stoned. If you feel your high getting too potent, reach for a CBD product. CBDs help mellow out the THC by clinging to your brain’s cannabinoid receptors and preventing the THC from taking hold. Pick up a CBD tincture or grab a CBD vape cartridge to keep on hand when you’re trying new strains. The sooner you use it, the sooner you’ll tame that overly intense high.

Drink Tons of Water
This is great advice no matter what you’re doing, but when you’re feeling an intense high, staying hydrated can help your body rid itself of the THC a bit faster. We’re not saying drink gallons of the stuff—just keep a water bottle on hand and take a few sips every time you think about it.    

Take a Nap
If you feel like you’re too high to do much of anything, give yourself permission to take a nap and rest. This will let the bulk of your high wear off without you consciously experiencing the effects. By the time you wake up, your high will have calmed down and you’ll be able to enjoy the feeling without a problem. 

Find Something to Do
When you’re stoned past your limit, it’s normal to feel a bit paranoid and panicky. Instead of giving into those feelings, find something to distract yourself. Put on a movie you love, stream a new show, or clean up the house. Believe it or not, a little distraction can make even an intense high feel more bearable. 

Get Active
Physical activity is one of the best ways to help you overcome those intense highs. No, you don’t have to go to the gym—if you’re that high, you shouldn’t be leaving the house anyway. Just walk around your home, do some pushups, jog in place, and step outside for a bit of fresh air. This will help clear your head and can be used in conjunction with any of the other tips to help get you back to your normal high faster.
