Greening out is having the symptoms of discomfort and nausea. This happens when you consume too much cannabis.
These symptoms may appear differently in every smoker. But every smoker experiences dizziness, vomiting, and anxiety. Greening out may drop your blood pressure and increase your heart rate, as per a study which was published in the Handbook of experimental psychology.
You should also keep in mind that these symptoms may get severe but no death has ever occurred due to this. Symptoms may last from a few minutes to few hours.
Reason behind greening out:
The endocannabinoid system of the body interacts with all the cannabinoids when we consume cannabis. Our bodies are having a natural analog toTHC that typically acts on these receptors and plays a role in appetite, pain, depression, memory, and other bodily functions.
When a smoker consumes really a huge amount of cannabis, the CB1 receptors become overwhelmed and it causes you to feel sick. It all depend on your tolerance, amount of cannabis you took, potency of cannabis and your physiological makeup.
What does greening out feel like?
Any smoker can have greening out, it does not matter if he consumed flowers or concentrate. The experience of greening out depends on the amount of THC the smoker took and his tolerance against THC. The symptoms of greening out are:
- Paranoia and anxiety
- Limb heaviness or a lack of mobility
- Increased heart rate
- Dizziness or lack of focus
- Chills or sweats
The symptoms of greening out may last from few minutes to few hours. If you consumed only weed, the symptoms will go away without any kind of medical assistance. But if you consume combination of different products of cannabis, taking medical help is necessary.
Can it cause damage to the body?
No consumer ever reported any damage done to then by greening out. Not even a single death is reported due to greening out. But the people who have some kind of heart conditions, they need to stay alert and careful while consuming cannabis. Although consuming a large amount of cannabis in one go is not so healthy practice but still it won’t cause any damage.
How do I prevent greening out?
Cannabis has different effect on every individual. Same is the case with greening out. It affects every person differently. People who are regular consumers, they build up a tolerance against greening out but it specifically can affect the new comers. But they can also prevent greening out by taking small amount of cannabis in the beginning.
If someone can tolerate only two to three hits of the joints, they should not be encouraged to take more than that. Every smoker should be well aware of his/her limits.
If you really do not want to green out, eat something or drink water before consuming cannabis. Because it would lead you to green out f you are consuming weed on an empty stomach.
It is also important to take the dose of edibles carefully to avoid it. Even the increase of few milligrams in your brownie can cause your symptoms of greening out.
