Overdose:The term drug overdose (or simply overdose or OD) describes the ingestion or application of a drug or other substance in quantities greater than are recommended or generally practiced. An overdose may result in a toxic state or death. I have had what you 'might' call a Cannabis overdose, Actually I had this 2 times in all my cannabis experience. The first many years ago in Jamaica when I ingested a cake that was made with Cannabis. I swear could feel the blood moving through my veins. The other about a year ago when I had a POWERFUL 'cookie". Both times I was not sick, I did not have to go to the hospital, I felt uncomfortable in the sense that I did not feel 'myself' Both times - I slept it off. Waking the next day to feel incredibly rested. I'm sure I just consumed too much. Still - Not toxic or near death! I asked recently if others experienced this and what they suggest we do to help 'bring us back' to feeling comfortable. Some of the suggestions I know do in fact work for me anyhow... brushing your teeth, drinking fruit juice, coffee. Going for a walk and getting some exercise- occupying your mind doing something you enjoy - and before you know it you will come out of that uncomfortable stage and feel relaxed and better. Always REMEMBER: No one has ever died from cannabis, if anything it only lasts a couple of hours and you will be fine when it passes. When I asked for suggestions I had a few say 'WHY? - Just ride it out and enjoy the full experience.' I like Cannabis to keep me functioning. I'm not into the couch lock-stoned feeling myself. Now... if you told me you took a pill overdoes. I would not be making any such suggestions! I would be on the phone with 911! I am not encouraging anyone to use Cannabis... No that's not right, I guess in fact I am. How can I not? I do hope I am in fact educating some to at least see if it is an option. I am not telling you to get it and use it illegally. THAT will never solve the problem. Insist, demand and be educated and provide research. If you are in pain- do your research!!! See if Cannabis is an option for your illness - Does it not make sense to try to get relief from something that won't kill you? Sadly with it being illegal you have to be careful - hard to try - to see if it helps you. Most people I know when faced with a situation where the are tired of feeling sick on pills.. find a way. The more people that inform & educate Dr.s the sooner this silly prohibition against one of natures medicines has to come to an end! You can not deny facts forever. Or LIVING Proof. xox<>< If you use recreationally... then vote. Stand up for yourself.
