Greened out or "greening out" refers to a state of excessive cannabis consumption that can result in uncomfortable or undesirable effects. It is often characterized by symptoms such as extreme anxiety, paranoia, rapid heartbeat, dizziness, nausea, and disorientation. This experience can occur when an individual consumes more cannabis than their tolerance level allows. It is important to note that the intensity and duration of being "greened out" can vary from person to person. If someone experiences these symptoms, it is recommended to find a calm and comfortable environment, drink water, and try to relax until the effects subside.

How long does greening out usually last

Greening out usually lasts anywhere from a few minutes to a few hours. If you are your friend is greening out, don’t panic! Often this feeling passes pretty quickly. First try drinking some gatorade, or orange juice with ice. Try sitting up if you are slouched down in the couch, or optionally completely lie down with your feet up and head slightly elevated on a pillow or cushion. Some other things to try are sucking on a few black peppercorn (as they contain calming terpenes which can mellow out your high), consuming some CBD — if you have any handy, such as CBD oil, or a CDB joint, as CBD has been shown to calm the greening out effects.
