What can go wrong during my cannabis experience?

If you use cannabis there is a chance that you will become very nauseous or dizzy. This risk is increased when you combine cannabis with alcohol.

Also, with a high dose of cannabis (especially when you eat it) there is the risk of a ‘bad trip’ or difficult experience. You can become completely confused, very frightened or even experience hallucinations. The effects almost always disappear when the cannabis wears off.

In addition, cannabis can also make you pass out (white out). This usually only lasts a short time. The persons that fainted is conscious again after a few minutes.

Because THC is not active in the areas of your brain that regulate heart rate and breathing, you cannot die from a cannabis overdose.

Cannabis can trigger psychosis. Someone must already be susceptible to psychosis. It may be that little push, causing the psychosis to start.
