How to get high off of little weed?


Do you know how to get unhigh after toking? Can you get too high from weed? Well, from personal testimony, OMG yes! Getting high is good, getting really high is great, but getting too high can suck so very bad for some stoners! It would take phenomenal amounts of marijuana to actually kill you, like around 40,000 times the amount required to just get high – no one has that kind of money to buy that much weed anyway – but, that said, THC amounts are being bred higher and higher in some cannabis strains, so a bad weed trip is actually a thing – your humble authors have been there – and while there are no confirmed cases of direct cannabis causes of death, that doesn’t mean you can’t feel like you’re dying when you smoke way-way-way down or toke too far up! Moderating your marijuana use does have some benefits, like needing less to get you high because you don’t supercharge your tolerance, and you save a little of the green you work for by blazing less of the green that gets you stoned.

If you’re a newbie, then you most likely have questions about how to get unhigh. We’ve all been there, in our weed first time with lots of questions – except maybe Snoop Dogg and Willie Nelson, they were born of the weed and will likely become part of the marijuana continuum when they leave the physical plane someday – the rest of us though, we have things we wonder about weed. How long does a weed high last? How much weed do you need to get high? How long does a dab high last? What happens when you get too high?

Everyone wants to know how to get super-high, but not too many pot plebes consider what to do if their super-high harshes their mellow with a vengeance! Beginners aren’t the only ones who overestimate their own limits, sometimes more seasoned stoners overdo the dabs or pack a weed bowl with excessive punch and have to figure out how to get unhigh afterward. If you start to feel nauseous, or experience a panic attack while high, then it’s no longer fun. Whether you are a medical marijuana user or a recreational cannabis consumer, there may come a time when you may need to put the brakes on your bud bingeing and it could help you at that point if you know how to sober up from weed and stop being high.

If you’re here reading this then we’re assuming you are worried about getting too high, or you have gotten too high before, or might possibly be feeling a little too high now – or you’re asking for a friend. How to get unhigh, then? So, we’re gonna discuss what it means to get high, answer burning questions like ‘What does being high on weed feel like?’, we’ll compare an edible high versus a smoke high, suggest ways to get less high and tell you how to get reliably unstoned. Prepare yourself as much as you are able, maybe with a modest weed toke or two, then let’s get down to how to get unhigh!

10) How to Stop Smoking Marijuana

This last one is a bit extreme, and more of a long-term cure than a short-term – unless by quitting weed you mean that as you start to feel too high in your cannabis experience you stop puffing pot or eating a marijuana medible, then by all means stop toking or munching before the intoxication effects get worse (unless, as we noted above you’re using an indica strain to negate a sativa high or vice versa). But after a long strange trip (or several) through the weedy looking glass you decide pot smoking is not for you, then maybe quitting long-term is the right thing for you to do. Those who smoke cannabis for medical reasons can still get some very good health benefits from CBD alone, which does not have the psychoactive effects of THC in marijuana.

CBD and THC both interact with your body’s endocannabinoid system receptors thus releasing neurotransmitters in your brain that can affect pain, immune function, stress, and sleep patterns. THC binds with CB1 receptors in the brain, producing the popular euphoric high long associated with pot. CBD has little interaction with CB1 receptors, in fact it can inhibit the binding of THC to the CB1 receptors, drastically reducing the psychoactive effects – that’s why we recommended it as a buzz kill above.

CBD alone or CBD from hemp (which may contain other cannabinoids, but has less than .03% THC) can help with many of the same conditions as THC such as seizures, inflammation, pain, depression, stress or anxiety, IBS (inflammatory bowel syndrome), nausea, and migraines; and many people who don’t do pot at all find medical management with cannabidiol to be preferable.

If you want to quit cannabis forever, then things you need to do include going cold turkey and not weaning yourself (there’s too much of a tendency to lapse back if you go slowly), get rid of all your weed – leaf, concentrates, all of it; and ditch your paraphernalia, too – no more pipes, bong rig, grinders, joint papers, all of it goes. You may experience some feelings of withdrawal, but that’s where CBD can help keep you de-stressed and handle any pain or discomfort issues you may have been using weed for. If you need extra help bucking your bud habit, there are addiction counseling services and medical professionals that can help.

Here is a somewhat lighthearted video take on how to stop being high – including some of the methods that we discussed above: 

What About the Exhale?

After holding for a few moments, slowly breathe the smoke out.

There’s a lot of conflicting information over whether holding for as long as possible will intensify the high.

But the truth is, holding it in longer only deprives your brain of oxygen.

It does nothing for the absorption of cannabinoids.

Whether you hold the smoke in for ten seconds or one second, you don’t want to exhale the smoke too fast.

Learning how to control the stream of smoke will make for a stronger high and will also exercise your lungs.

Approach 2: Quitting Weed Cold Turkey

You may not want to quit smoking weed on a gradual basis because:

You may need to quit immediately for many reasons (work, relationships, school, legal issues etc).

You may be the type of person who does things ‘all or nothing’ and it may work best for you to cut it out completely.

The approach of going cold turkey has a history of being associated with drug addiction. It simply means you completely cut out marijuana consumption.

It certainly has the clear advantage of a quick impact. You’ll see results straight away. However, it’s much more complicated than it appears. You have to have a strategy to deal with the withdrawal symptoms that you’ll inevitably experience.

You can’t simply put don’t your spliff and say goodbye to weed forever without looking back. This is because even if you are mentally prepared for the challenge of giving up weed. Your body probably isn’t ready.

After all, your body has developed a tolerance for marijuana. While the body stores THC for up to a month at a time, this simply won’t be enough to prevent you from craving cannabis.

Although going cold turkey might be worth a try, it’s rarely successful on its own without a solid strategy. It’s difficult to fight against your own biology.

In this part of our guide, we will talk about useful strategies for quitting cold turkey.

Prepare Yourself

Look at what ‘function’ marijuana currently fills.

Ask yourself what are other ways you could fill that function?

Example #1: If weed helps you fall asleep…

Look into different ways of how you can help yourself sleep.

Instead of smoking pot, you may:

  • eat less before bedtime so the full stomach doesn’t disturb you
  • staying away from the blue light of mobile phones, tablets and TV before bedtime
  • relaxing before going to bed with a warm shower and light stretching
  • listening to soothing music or white noises
  • creating a pitch dark sleep environment with blackout curtains
  • ventilating the room and keeping a temperature between 60-67 °F (16-20 °C)
  • exercise 10-30 minutes (ideally no later than 5pm) every day to improve your sleep quality

You can look up other ‘sleep hygiene’ tactics and start practicing these right away.

Example #2: If weed helps you deal with work stress and anxiety…

Instead of running to your smoking and weed paraphernalia, try to manage your work stress and anxiety with these long-term tactics:

  • Control your breath. Try to breathe in through the nose and out through the mouth.
  • Take regular breaks. Stay away from your computer and take a short walk.
  • Do some stretching in front of the computer to help your body relax.
  • Communicate more with someone you trust (family member, friend, coworker, doctor, religious leader). Sometimes socializing and confiding your anxiety in trusted persons may be helpful and make you feel less lonely.
  • Keep work/life balance. Try not to bring work home and spend your leisure time with family, friends and hobbies.

Give some time for these things to become habitual before judging their effectiveness.

Remove The Substance, Don’t Buy Cannabis

This is the most simple and obvious first step to quitting your dependency on weed. After all, if you don’t buy it, you won’t smoke it. If you don’t buy yourself anyway, make sure you just don’t get it at all anyway.

The extent of the challenge of not buying weed partly depends on your circumstances. For instance, whether you’re living in a place that has legalized marijuana or not. Or, whether your friends and the social group also smoke weed.

Either way, this step certainly involves bucket loads of willpower to get through it. You are almost certainly going to experience strong temptations to go back to your old ways. The best way to counter these urges is to distract yourself by calling a friend for a chat or going out with non-smoking friends for coffee, and to remind yourself the reasons for wanting to quit.

Let us emphasize once again:

Delete your weed dealer’s phone number (and block it if possible).

Change your daily route if there is a cannabis store on your way.

Get Rid of All The Gear (Smoking Accessories etc.)

This suggestion is crucial.

Most users of marijuana accumulate a wide array of different instruments and accessories. These include anything from pipes and bongs to paper and grinders.

It’s important that you immediately remove all of these items as a statement that this is the start of your non-smoking marijuana-free lifestyle.

Besides, not only do these items have no purpose in your weed-free life, there serve as triggers for relapse.

Many of these accessories could set you back quite a bit. So there’s an extra incentive for you to make a bit of cash on the back of giving up your dependency on smoking weed.

Get rid of all weed and weed paraphernalia you own.

When you have them handy, it is always easy to postpone your goals and get into the vicious circle of “I will do it tomorrow”, a typical procrastination sentence.

Remove the ‘option’ for yourself as much as possible.

Let People Know, Make Yourself Accountable

While you might think that you can handle this on your own, it’s much better to involve other people in your struggle against cannabis dependency.

Make use of your support network, whether it’s family, friends, partners or colleagues. The people that you surround yourself with this time can play a significant role in helping you overcome your dependency and progress towards your goals.

You may want to ‘just stop smoking’ and tell everyone later – but this is often hard.

By telling people, it will keep you accountable.

It will let people know not to offer you a joint or a reefer and you can get social support with your goal.

If you feel intimidated to tell everyone before you are successful, there is another option.

Find a reliable and trusted accountability buddy. This friend, family member or partner can check in on you and help you stay on track when you seem to be forgetful of your goals.

It’s vital to realize that ultimately, giving up your drug disorder is down to you. Nobody else can achieve this for you.

Distract Yourself

Most weed smokers spend many hours in the day getting high. Therefore, it can be difficult removing this from your lifestyle when quitting cold turkey.

That’s why you have to fill the void left. The best thing to replace your marijuana habit with is a healthy hobby. This can be anything from starting a new sport or learning how to bake cakes. It may help to stay busy, to avoid boredom (major trigger for many people) and to keep yourself from focusing on weed.

Take A Break

It’s not fun, but the best way to reduce your tolerance to marijuana is to take a break. How long your break lasts will determine how it affects you. Your body stores THC in fat cells all over your system.

Under normal circumstances, your body moves energy in and out of your healthy fat cells all the time. Your body is constantly using and replacing fat cells all over. Over time, you’ll flush the THC out of your system through natural metabolism.

You can speed up this process in several ways. Drinking plenty of water is one of the best ways. Getting regular exercise and sleep will help you reduce your weed tolerate capacity as well.

It can take up to 90 days for your body to metabolize all the THC that is sitting in your tissues.

Once the THC has been taken out of your system completely, you’ll be pretty much a newbie to smoking weed once again! Of course, you’ll know what to expect, so you won’t be a weed virgin. Sorry, it’s not going to be like the first time.

But you’ll still get blazed! Consider taking a few months off each year to renew your ability to get really high. Your body will appreciate it!

One idea of how to get really high off of weed is to stop smoking it and eat it! With legal marijuana, you CANNOT overdose.

You can, however, consume so much weed and get so high that you leave reality for a while. If this is what you’re after (and who isn’t?), you should try edibles.

When you smoke, you can only ingest the one puff you’re working on at a time. When you eat, you can put as much marijuana in your system as your belly can fit!

Be careful though! Adjusting from smoking to eating weed can be tricky. Many people report falling asleep.

That’s what a marijuana overdose looks like: you get tired and want to go to bed and take a nap. If you eat a huge amount of edible pot, you might not get high, you might fall asleep and miss it!

Edible are a totally different story from smoke. Your high from edibles is going last longer. Typically, you will experience a 4-6 hour high from edible.

Remember, it can take up to 2 hours for the effects to even start.
