Unlike the lungs, where the high is instantaneous, the liver takes about 30 minutes to 1 hour to convert THC to a powerful chemical known as 11-hydroxy-THC. This process results in a highness that lasts longer and is more intense than smoking. Other perks to edibles are the portability and the freedom to enjoy where smoking is forbidden.

Dry mouth, anxiety, hallucinations are signs of an overdose. you should drink lots of water and let your friends be aware, these symptoms ware off in few hours. A safe and comfortable environment will aid quick relief. Luckily, cannabis is not toxic, you will most likely sleep for 11-12 hours and still feel groggy after waking up.
  5. Have some CBD-rich cannabis on hand so you can clear off the high: citrus, pistachios are antidotes to calm the highness.
  6. Steer clear of alcohol: Asides increasing highness, alcohol also results in dizziness and being nauseous. Individuals with issues related to mental health conditions should steer clear of marijuana-infused edibles. Some studies have shown that marijuana may aggravate the signs associated with depression, psychosis or schizophrenia.
