Weed Greenouts: How to Manage Them

We have all experienced the agony of being too stoned and needing to come down quickly, whether we didn’t know our limits or our edible kicked in later than intended.

In times like these, it is essential to remember that although an intense high may feel uncomfortable, it is not life-threatening. No one has ever died from an overdose of Cannabis. It takes only minutes or hours for most “greening out” symptoms to subside. It can, however, seem as if you’ve been baked to the bone during this period. As a result, you can do a few things to reduce the effects of THC in the meantime.

Here are a few suggestions that will help you come down quickly if you’re too high:


There is some science behind what sounds like a miracle. A compound found in peppercorns, caryophyllene, is a potent CB2 antagonist. By increasing the sedative effects of THC, you may feel calmer. In addition to peppercorns, lemons contain calming compounds like limonene.


It’s been known for years that lemons can help reduce the psychoactive effects of Cannabis and can be used as an antidote. Lemons contain a terpene called limonene, quickly absorbed by the body. Limonene is thought to relieve the uncomfortable feeling associated with too much Cannabis because of its anti-anxiety properties.

The outer rind of the lemon is the highest concentration of limonene. Making lemonade from scratch and adding some zested lemon peel is a great idea. Due to the high concentration of limonene in lemon peels, zesting them into your water or steeping them in hot water will yield more potent effects than using the lemons themselves.


While this may sound counterintuitive, CBD helps counteract the effects of THC. Similar to THC, CBD is another cannabinoid found in Cannabis. Unlike THC, however, CBD interacts with more brain receptors. Several studies suggest that CBD may help with anxiety and depression, however researchers do not know precisely how CBD works. In some individuals, CBD has been found to improve their sleep after consuming it, especially in cases where THC has produced an unpleasant high.

Pine Nuts

According to some research, pine nuts may counteract the effects of THC.

Among their many beneficial properties is pinene, a terpene found in plants with a pine-like aroma. Pinene calms the mind and improves clarity.


The health benefits of cuddling your pet are numerous

Several studies have shown that snuggling your pet once or twice a day can improve your psychological well-being. It has been scientifically proven that a daily snuggle can lower levels of Cortisol, the stress hormone.


A cautious approach to smoking is to have the appropriate comedown readily available to you. Even though all of these have some scientific backing, peppercorns and lemons have the most significant amount of scientific research, so make sure to have fresh lemonade with zested lemon peel along with zested lemons and peppercorns.
