What To Do in Case Of a ‘Bad Trip’ With Cannabis?
Monday 16 December
Smoking of vaporizing weed has an effect. This effect can differ. Besides the extent to which it is consumed, the effect is different for everyone. It can happen you don’t feel so well, you can get nauseous and feel like the world will end. But don´t panic, just read our advice here!
Do’s and Don’ts
For those who don’t smoke often or haven’t even smoked at all before, it’s really important that you know what kind of effect it can have on you and what you can do if you don´t like it. You see, it can cause you to be very aware of yourself and your surroundings and that’s not something everybody appreciates. Most people get relaxed, they have creative thoughts or can´t stop giggling. But sometimes it causes you to feel unwell, nauseous and panicky, but unfortunately you can’t do anything about it at this point.
Advice & Information: Ask for advice in the coffee shop. They know their products and can help you make the right choice.
Feeling & body: Don’t take a joint if you’re feeling bad. It won’t solve anything and it can even have the opposite effect. Make sure you have the right minset and that you have eaten something already.
Start Small: Roll a small joint and keep in mind that tobacco is more likely to make you feel nauseous, more so than a pure joint, although the effect of the pure one is more intense. Even better is to use a vaporizer to vaporize the cannabis.
Slow Down: You don’t have to finish the joint. It can last for days, treat it like you would treat an expensive whiskey, which you occasionally enjoy. Take a hit from the joint or your vaporizer every once in a while and wait for the effect. And don’t rush into the next one!
Comfy: Make sure you’re in a comfortable environment, so if you feel like it, you can lay down.
Don’t Panic: Don’t start to panic when you don’t feel so good. No one’s ever died of cannabis.
Sugar: Make sure you eat enough sugar. Take a good snack, drink a soda or eat at least something sweet.
Chill: You can lay down and try to sleep. The effect can, in fact, last up to 2 hours. And with Space Cake it can even last for 4 to 6 hours (!!)
Duration of the effect: You will survive! At most you feel a bit drowsy the next day, so do not get behind the wheel of your car, motor or scooter. In fact, cannabis stays in your system for up to 3 days after a single use. It’s illegal to drive in that case, so avoid losing your driver’s license!
