What To Do If You're Too High (on a Date)

I don’t know about you, but sometimes, dating can stress me out! How do I handle it? I consume some cannabis pre-date to mellow me and my anxiety out. However, sometimes we overdo it either because we’re nervous, too excited or just really feeling the vibe. Overdoing it can cost us not only a good time, but can also lead you to have a bad date.

Why do we “green out”?

Greening out occurs when our CB1 receptors take in more THC than they can handle. Symptoms look like nausea, excessive sweating, feeling dizzy and having your skin turn literally white or green. Word of advice, greening out is most common in people who consume alcohol immediately before using cannabis. In fact, alcohol will almost double your THC blood concentration. 

Here’s what to do if you’re too high:

Try not to panic. You are safe and, if you are consuming mindfully, your friends should be equipped to sit with you, lay down on the floor and just breathe. Sniff or Chew black peppercorns. Peppercorns are high in there terpene beta-carophyllene that is well known to help you cope with the anxiety that comes with being too high by binding and blocking the THC receptors.

Chew a citrus rind, like a lemon. Citrus fruit are high in the high absorbable terpene limonene which has long been used to counteract the psychoactive effects of THC. Consume CBD. Everything in nature has a balanced counterpart. THC has CBD and, when your receptors are freaking out from too much THC, CBD acts as the block to get your receptors back on track and shut the scary shit down.

Hydrate more with water, avoid coffee and beer. Hydration is sexy and can also help flush your system quicker. Avoiding coffee as caffeine can often increase an anxious response and alcohol because it has been shown to increase THC in your blood, which would make things only worse. Eat a snack. Eating can help us get out of our heads and back into our bodies, which could help mitigate a panic response. Plus, you’re high - so the food will still taste pretty great. It is recommended that every cannabis consumer have some of these supplies in their stash box exactly for this reason, whether for personal use or when your hot date comes over for some late night sesh and sexy times. Avoid a bad date night and consumer mindfully friends.
