Safety & Precautions In Using Strong Cannabis Strains
The strains we’ve listed here are definitely not for beginners. These are pretty potent strains, so if you’re not used to high-THC weed, the side effects can be pretty brutal.
High-THC weed can induce anxiety and paranoia in some users. It also affects short-term memory, judgment, reasoning, and reflex.
If you’re going to use strong cannabis strains, then you need to be extra cautious. Be mindful of these precautions when using high-THC weed strains.
- If you’re new to weed, try to consume potent strains when you’re around trusted friends and in a comfortable environment. If you do develop ugly side effects, you’d want to be around people you can trust, friends who’ll take care of you and make sure you stay safe.
- Don’t take too much. It’s wise to start low and go slow. So smoke just a little bit and wait for about 10 to 15 minutes to see how you’d react to the potent strain before smoking just a little bit more.
- High-THC, Indica-dominant weed — especially if it contains high levels of myrcene, terpinolene, and linalool — can induce a strong couch-lock effect. So if this effect is making you uncomfortable, then stop and rest awhile. Better yet, sleep it off.
- Don’t use potent strains during the day, especially if your day job is physically demanding or you’re going to drive or operate heavy machinery.
- It’s also wise to keep some CBD oil on hand. Taking a few drops of CBD oil helps combat the negative side effects of high-THC strains.
- For cottonmouth and dry eyes, drinking plenty of water can help reduce these side effects.
Some potent strains also induce the munchies. So keep some snacks near you for when your fierce hunger strikes.
