Can CBD help with histamine response or allergies to THC?
This alone can be a reason for greening out with cannabis.
How does CBD help with greening out
So. the big question.
In the era of legalization, consumers are clearing dispensary shelves of cannabis strains with THC percentages north of 20%, expecting a kick-ass high. However, a recent study from the University of Colorado Boulder and published in JAMA Psychiatry contradicts that notion. The research found that even though smoking high-potency cannabis will definitely boost the levels of THC in your blood, it won’t get you any higher than if you’d consumed a strain with lower potency.
It wouldn’t be unfair to say that 2020 has been one hell of a year, and the need to escape from reality — if even for a few hours — is more tempting than ever. Consuming cannabis can be good for what ails you in so many ways, from its medicinal compounds that could help calm inflammation and contribute to a better night’s sleep, to its ability to bring a feeling of euphoria that could take your mind momentarily off of the world’s troubles.
Greening out and the endocannabinoid system
If you are with friends or people you trust, ask them to stay with you until you feel well enough to be on your own. Drink plenty of water, have a snack, and get comfy. If you can manage it, try deep breathing exercises, yoga, meditation, or even take a warm bath.
However, the best way to avoid a green out is to simply not consume too much cannabis, especially high potency strains. If you are new to cannabis, try strains that aren’t too high in THC, or strains that are at least more balanced by other cannabinoids. As tasty as it might be, don’t eat that whole edible.
How high THC can lead to a green out
Both endogenous and exogenous cannabinoids bind to CB receptors called CB1 and CB2. These receptors are located throughout the body, including skeletal tissues, internal organs, and the skin to help create bodily harmony, or homeostasis. When your body is out of whack in some way, let’s say it needs to respond to a change in outside temperature for example, the ECS rounds up endogenous cannabinoids to help bring your body back to balance.
