Your Solution to Managing an Intense Cannabis High: HiBeGone
Cannabis, a complex plant with over 100 cannabinoids, has a myriad of effects on the human body. While its benefits, including relaxation and pain relief, have been widely acknowledged, sometimes users may find themselves experiencing a high that's a bit too intense.
If you've ever found yourself in this predicament, don't worry, HiBeGone has your back. In this blog, we'll provide some tips on how to counteract an intense cannabis high, and introduce you to HiBeGone, a novel solution designed to help you manage your cannabis experience.
The Cannabis High: What's Happening in Your Body?
When you consume cannabis, the cannabinoids interact with your body's endocannabinoid system (ECS), a complex cell-signaling system that plays a role in regulating a range of functions and processes like mood, appetite, and sleep. The primary psychoactive compound in cannabis, THC, produces the "high" sensation by binding to the CB1 receptors in the brain.
The psychoactive effects of THC are sometimes less pleasant than others which are due in part to Cannabinoid receptors. There are two main types of cannabinoid receptors, CB1 and CB2, which are found in different locations in the body. CB1 receptors are primarily found in the brain and central nervous system, while CB2 receptors are found in the peripheral nervous system and immune cells. When cannabinoids, such as THC, interact with these receptors, they can have a range of effects on the body, including altering mood, appetite, and pain perception while also affecting how long a high lasts.
The intensity of the high and how it effects you can depend on several factors, including the amount of THC in the cannabis strain and your consumption method. Smoking weed, eating edibles such as gummies, oil concentrates like those used for dabs, and vape solutions are some of the most common forms of consumption. Other factors such as your body chemistry, and your tolerance will also play a role in how these products affect you. It's this variability that can sometimes lead to a high that's stronger than what you're comfortable with.
While there are many rumored methods to help get rid of the intoxicating effects of weed such as taking a cold shower, practicing specific breathing exercises, or the black pepper trick which suggests sniffing black peppercorns to reduce a weed high, we sought to develop a science backed product that actually worked, every time.
Understanding and Managing an Intense Cannabis High
An overly intense high can manifest in various ways, including feelings of paranoia, increased heart rate, anxiety, and disorientation. These feelings, while temporary, can be distressing. Here are a few strategies to help you sober up and bring you back to earth:
- Stay Hydrated: Drinking water and maintaining hydration can help manage some physical side effects of cannabis like dry mouth, and may also aid in reducing the intensity of your high.
- Get Fresh Air: If possible, stepping outside for a breath of fresh air can help clear your mind.
- Distract Yourself: Engage in a calming activity like watching a movie, listening to music, or even playing a video game. It can help distract your mind from the intense feelings.
- Relaxation Techniques: Deep breathing, meditation, or taking a warm shower or bath can help relax your body and mind.
- Wait it Out: Remember, the effects of cannabis typically last between 1-3 hours. Sometimes, the best solution may be to wait for the high to subside on its own.
While these strategies can be effective, they might not work for everyone. When you get too high, that's where HiBeGone comes in.
HiBeGone: The Birth of a Solution
HiBeGone began as a wellness project by four friends who were focused on health and cognitive enhancement. However, during our product testing, we discovered our formula had an unexpected effect: it could help alleviate intense cannabis highs and counteract various cannabis products with calming effects.
Originally, we wanted our formula to be a cognitive enhancement drink that would also suppress our appetites. As we tested various formulas, one of our partners who always got an extreme case of the munchies after smoking cannabis became our test subject. Not only did his munchies subside after consuming our product, but he reported that the brain fog had seemingly vanished and he no longer felt glued to the couch.
This experience led us to pivot our focus towards creating a solution to help users manage their cannabis highs after consuming too much THC. And thus, HiBeGone was born.
How HiBeGone Works
HiBeGone contains several key ingredients, including L-Theanine, Alpha-GPC, and Tetrahydrocannabivarian (THCV). These ingredients work together to create a solution that helps you come down from an intense cannabis high.
L-Theanine, an amino acid commonly found in tea leaves, helps calm your nerves and relieve stress-related symptoms. Alpha-GPC, a choline compound found in the brain, has been shown to improve cognitive ability and sharpen focus. But it's THCV, a cannabinoid, that plays a critical role in the effectiveness of HiBeGone.
THCV, or Tetrahydrocannabivarin, is a compound found in some strains of cannabis that can help to negate the effects of THC, the primary psychoactive compound in cannabis. Studies have shown that THCV can help to reduce the "high" caused by THC, making it a potentially useful tool for those who find themselves feeling too high after consuming cannabis or simply wish to reduce the more negative effects of cannabis consumption.
Unpacking THCV: The Game-Changing Cannabinoid
THCV is lesser-known compared to its cousins, THC and CBD, but its effects are incredibly intriguing. This cannabinoid is known for its appetite-suppressant and stimulant properties, which contribute to its ability to counteract the effects of THC.
Research on THCV is still in the early stages, but preliminary studies suggest that it can block the rewarding sensations associated with THC. In one study involving regular marijuana users, it was found that while THCV didn't reduce the high, it blocked the users from getting higher and helped with paranoia and anxiety associated with THC use. This makes THCV a promising cannabinoid in managing and mitigating the effects of an intense cannabis high.
The combination of L-Theanine, Alpha-GPC, and THCV in HiBeGone works synergistically to help you regain control when you're feeling too high.
