I don’t want to sound too braggy but I’ve not had a bad edible experience yet. I’ve always been a little apprehensive towards substances in general and have always erred on the cautious side when it comes to cannabis edibles. However, I’ve seen a handful of friends have a bad time with either edibles or smoking to know what you need to do in the event of a bad trip.

The most important thing to keep in mind is that it’s not permanent, it won’t last, and you just have to keep calm.

Take a few deep breaths

Breathe in and out slowly and deeply and remind yourself that this is going to pass. It might feel a little scary and overwhelming right now, but it will pass.

Drink some water

I always find ice water the most refreshing when I’m feeling a little bit too messed up, but whatever feels good to you. Ask a friend for help if you’re feeling like you can’t do it on your own. No judgements, it happens.

Get comfortable

Whatever you need to do to feel comfortable, do it. Laydown on the floor if that’s what feels good. You might be feeling dizzy or light headed so it’s a good idea to just be still.

Be prepared for puke

I’m not saying you’re definitely going to throw up, but it’s always better to be safe than sorry. Put a new bag in your trash and bring the bin near your comfortable spot.

Sleep it off

Really the best move here is to lay down and go to sleep. By the time you wake up the spins and paranoia will have passed and you can get on with your day. Albeit probably a little bit groggy than you started.
