Begin with Caution: Petite Portions and Modest Measures
A prevalent pitfall when delving into the world of cannabis edibles is an accelerated pace. Since edibles often come in the form of tantalizing treats, the appealing taste coupled with the enticing effects of cannabis may entice you to indulge more than your body can comfortably handle. Remember, edibles take time to reveal their impact due to how your liver processes the 11 Hydroxy.
To steer clear of inadvertently stepping beyond your comfort level, proceed with patience. Seek out edibles that offer a smaller dosage per serving such as our Hempy Longstocking Delta 8 Dosers, Delta 9 Blends and Delta 9 Max gummies, Initially, experiment with just half a gummy or a quarter of a cannabis-infused cookie or brownie. Let your body acclimate to the new experience before reaching for more.
Never Embark on the Edibles Journey on an Empty Stomach
If you’re aiming to temper the cannabis edible experience, pair it with a substantial meal. Consuming a full meal prior to partaking in an edible can reduce the intensity and prolong the onset of effects. This is because you’re also giving your digestive system other substances to process concurrently, thus slowing down the metabolism of the cannabis. Overloading on carbs before taking an edible can have an opposite effect and make your experience more intense so be careful of this.

Create a Tranquil Environment and Stay Home
Experiment with Different Types of Edibles
Coming Down from An Intense High!
- Exercise and Shower
- Drink Plenty of Water
- Unwind with Music
In the event you’ve unintentionally consumed a stronger dose of cannabis edibles than intended and are now grappling with its overpowering effects, here’s a game plan: satiate your hunger and hydrate generously. Physical activity, followed by a refreshing shower, can expedite the processing of cannabis. Finally, try to relax and then sleep off the excess. Overconsumption of cannabis edibles isn’t dangerous, but it can induce discomfort and unease.
Consuming food after the onset of edible effects can help mitigate the intensity. Succumb to your cravings and opt for substantial foods like pasta or fries. This gives your stomach an alternate substance to digest apart from the cannabis. If nausea strikes, as it sometimes can, consider a soothing fruit smoothie or a warm bowl of soup.
Stay Hydrated: Aid Your Body’s Metabolism
Cannabis metabolizes in your body with the help of water. Adequate hydration can hasten the processing and elimination of the edible from your system. If water isn’t appealing, consider alternatives like fruit juice, sports drinks, soups, or refreshing smoothies.
Exercise and Shower: Boost Your Metabolic Rate
Feeling jittery post-edible? Hydrate copiously, get some exercise, and follow it up with a shower. Physical activity encourages perspiration, aiding in the excretion of cannabis and hastening your recovery process.
Create a Comforting Ambiance with Soothing Music
Experiencing discomfort after consuming a cannabis edible? Craft a calming environment: dim the lights, lay back comfortably, and tune into some relaxing music.
Lastly, an overwhelming cannabis experience can almost always be countered by sleep. If the effects of the edibles are too potent, tuck yourself into bed. Even a light nap or some relaxed daydreaming could offer more comfort than attempting to confront a stressful day.
Can’t fall asleep? Engage in a familiar, low-stress activity like watching a favorite movie or cuddling with a pet or partner. Stay cozy on the couch with a hydrating drink within reach, and give it time for the effects to wear off.”
