Feeling high off nothing? Don’t understand Help?

I ate an edible about two weeks ago and in the past three days I started feeling high without smoking or eating anything. It lasts from 30 minutes to 1 hour. I really hate it and don’t understand why it’s happening. Is there any way I can stop it?

It should stop over time by itself.
by: Debbie Wicker

Feeling high when you haven't used, eaten or smoked anything is very disconcerting. Marijuana has more than 500 chemicals in it and, if mixed with other things, can have even more than that. How our brains react to these chemicals varies within each of us, we are each completely unique from a brain chemistry prospective. That's likely why you're experiencing these symptoms.

I would recommend that, as a precaution, you go to a doctor and describe what you took. Have the doctor do a medical check-up to make sure there are no lingering issues.

Generally, if the doctor doesn't find anything, your symptoms should lessen over time and hopefully clear up in the next six months.

Our brains are, for the most part, still a mystery to us. Why can some people use and not get addicted, while others have terrible long lasting side effects? No one knows. Research is just starting to uncover some of the complexities of the brain, but it really in it's infancy. That's why we all need to be VERY careful what we use because it's effects on us can be more dangerous than we realize.
