Don’t Panic. Take a breath and realize you are fine and everything is OK. Remember there have been zero reports of cannabis deaths and you have just ingested too much too fast.
Know your tolerance (just like with alcohol or prescription drugs). Smoke with people you are comfortable with. Sometimes smoking with new people can give you anxiety or make you feel uncomfortable at first. Always know you limit start small and work your way up to dose properly.
Drink water and eat snacks! Hydrating always helps you take your mind off things by distracting you from over thinking. Snacks are another way to help keep you distracted. Don’t drink anything caffeinated, it can trigger anxiety.
Go for a walk or stay active. Sometimes staying active can help you relax from being paranoid. Keep your mind busy with activities.
Distract yourself. Listening to music, watching a movie, playing a video games, or just have a conversation with your friends around you.
Try to keep calm and, if you can, lay down and REST.
The high produced from smoking Indica bud is a strong physical body high that will make you sleepy or ‘couch-locked’ and provides a deep relaxation feeling compared to a Sativa high, which is known to be more energetic and uplifting.
Just because cannabis is legal to purchase and possess in Colorado, there are only a few legal places to consume cannabis. You can consume cannabis in the privacy of your home, hotel (if you book your room at one of the few that will allow consumption), a private (NOT FOR HIRE) limousine/bus, private events.
Adult residents can grow up to 6 marijuana plants per person, with no more than 3 in the mature/flowering stage at any time. No more than 12 total plants are allowed per residence regardless of the number of adults living there. Marijuana plants must be kept in an enclosed, locked area.
Take extra precautions to ensure that only authorized adults have access to the marijuana plants. You must be 21 and older to have or use retail marijuana. Children and pets should be kept away from plants at all times.
Only licensed retail marijuana stores may sell retail marijuana, and only to those 21 and older.
