We’ve all been there. You’ve just sampled some really dank bud and now it feels like you’re on an elevator going down at 300 miles an hour. Your heart is pounding. You can barely move. Everything is too loud. Everything is too hot. Or too slow. Or too fast. To make matters worse, you just remembered you have to go somewhere very soon and you’re stoned off your trees. It sucks, but we’re here to help.
So what to do if you get too high? Don’t worry. There are a few things you can do to get yourself off that elevator and back on the ground.
Food, food, food. Eating something (or a lot of somethings) is probably the best thing to do when you’ve smoked too much. It’ll bring you down faster than just about anything else. It might be slow going at first, but it always works. Drink lots of water as well. Water is a detoxifying agent. If you don’t have anything to munch on, one of the following suggestions will work.
Splash Cold Water on Your Face
This works pretty well. Nothing helps kill a buzz faster than a face full of really cold water. Do this two or three times and you will feel better. Then seriously, get something to eat. Munchies rule.
Take a Shower
Showers aren’t just good for sobering up drunk people on TV! Taking a shower will go a long way toward killing your buzz. The colder you make the water, the faster it’ll work. After that? Food.
If you can’t follow any of the above suggestions, try distracting yourself. Jam some music and really zone out on it. Play a video game or look out the window at what’s shaking in the neighborhood. Focusing on being too high makes it seem worse than it really is, so try to find something else to occupy your mind.
Take a Nap
If distracting your mind fails, try taking a nap. It’s entirely possible to sleep considering how stoned you are, so give it a shot. When you wake up, you’ll feel better. Then you can eat.
Wait it Out
When all else fails, just wait it out. It’s not going to last nearly as long as it seems like it does, and no one has ever died from smoking too much weed. So just relax, breathe deep and next time, pace yourself.
