What can you do when someone has a bad trip on cannabis?

Cannabis, especially in high doses, makes you more prone to paranoid thoughts and fear. That is why the set (how you feel) and setting (where you are) is very important. So only use in an environment where you feel comfortable. Read more about it in our article on drug, set and setting.

If someone is too high, that person can have very paranoid or anxious thoughts. Try to reassure him or her and possibly give him or her something sweet to eat. Fresh air in a quiet place can also help. Other than that, it’s just a matter of waiting for it to pass. It makes little sense to call the first aid or an ambulance. Only do this if someone poses a danger to themselves or their environment.
