What Happens If You Take Too Much THCV

Tetrahydrocannabivarin (THCV) is a unique cannabinoid – its psychoactive effects are incredibly mild, and quite unstable on top of that.  But, with most THCV products being combined with other psychoactives like delta 8 THC, it’s still possible to take too much and end up more intoxicated than you planned.  The good news is that you can just follow one of the methods below to remedy this potential issue in no time.

While none of these potential side effects are life-threatening, they can be uncomfortable, in which case you have to consider one of the methods coming up here, in order to get back to a more “normal” state.

What Happens if I Consume Too Much THCV?

Most of us have, at some point or another, taken too much of certain cannabinoids that get us high, leaving us in a state where we’re almost too intoxicated, to the point where we may feel anxious, lightheaded, paranoid or just off.  Take note that cannabinoids are nontoxic to humans; getting too high doesn’t come with any real danger, but your intoxicated mind can feel alarmed regardless, feeling an urgency to do something to get back to a more sober place. 

Ultimately, if you’ve gotten too high, the effects will not last for longer than a few hours, and during that time you can remember that because the human body has an endocannabinoid system (ECS), you can actually tolerate and metabolize cannabinoids easily without any risk of toxicity.  

That being said, some of the most commonly reported symptoms of taking too much of any psychoactive cannabinoid include:

  • Dizziness
  • Lightheadedness
  • Paranoia
  • Anxiety
  • Increased heartrate (due to a drop in blood pressure)
  • Dry mouth
  • Dry eyes
  • Inability to concentrate
  • Drowsiness/grogginess
  • Feeling dissociated
  • Fatigue
  • Nausea

Tips for Dealing with Taking Too Much THCV 

If you’re experiencing any of the symptoms of taking too much THCV as listed above, here are some simple solutions that can get you back to a more grounded, “normal” state.

Getting Too High On THCV Tip #1: Grab Some CBD 

CBD is hemp’s dominant cannabinoid, and is completely non-psychoactive, being commonly used for its anxiolytic effects.  It’s known for its notably soothing effect on the mind & body. 

CBD also interacts synergistically with other cannabinoids including THCV to balance out the “high” effects that you’re feeling, to pretty much mellow the experience and counteract any of the more unpleasant sensations you may experience from accidentally getting too high.  Just take a standard dose of CBD – 25mg-40mg or so – and you may be surprised by just how effective it can be.

Getting Too High On THCV Tip #2: Drink Some Coffee 

Just drinking some coffee has the ability to bring you into a more “normal” state in no time.  As a stimulant, the caffeine in coffee can wake up the body’s nervous system, and what this does is counteract a lot of the effects of THCV that make you feel “out of it.”  In fact, caffeine works synergistically with THCV to offer a more balanced high where you feel alert, awake and refreshed, yet soothed by the cannabinoid’s anxiolytic properties.

Getting Too High On THCV Tip #3: Reach for Something Sweet 

Sugar works very similarly to caffeine, in that it has the same synergistic relationship with THCV to get your nervous system back to a more grounded state.  Sugar can also help with the effects that may occur when blood pressure gets lower, which can be very useful if you’re dealing with lightheadedness or an increased heartrate.  THCV, unlike most cannabinoids, can actually suppress appetite, but if you can, try to go for something sweet despite that.

Getting Too High On THCV Tip #4: Take a Shower 

Taking a refreshing, long shower when you’re too high on THCV can produce a grounding effect on the way you feel, calming away any anxiety.  The feeling of running water can be extremely soothing to the senses, and thus, can make you feel like you’re “in your body” rather than floating above the clouds.  A cold shower can be particularly helpful, as it can wake you up to the point of almost making you feel sober.  Just make sure that you’re careful, since THCV products can throw off our sense of balance and coordination, so you don’t want to slip in the shower.

Getting Too High On THCV Tip #5: Distract Yourself 

One of the most helpful ways to put an end to anxious thinking patterns with THCV compound is to distract yourself with something you love, like a favorite videogame or movie to watch, or an album that always engages you.  Turn to something along these lines and you’ll likely find your anxiety slipping away as you become fully engaged in the distraction.

Getting Too High On THCV Tip #6: Resist the Urge to Google 

One thing you should strictly avoid is googling any symptoms you’re experiencing with tetrahydrocannabivarin (THCV), all of which are normal and non-life-threatening.  Googling any side effects or symptoms is only going to leave you in an anxiety spiral thinking that something is “wrong,” even when you’re sober, and your altered state of mind won’t help.  Trust that you’re completely fine and not in any danger.

Getting Too High On THCV Tip #7: Drink Some Water

THCV can cause cottonmouth, which is common with basically all psychoactive cannabinoids, and comes from the compound’s impact on our salivary glands.  Extreme dry mouth isn’t fun, but it’s also extremely easy to fix just by drinking some water, which activates the salivary glands so that your mouth will stop feeling so dry.

Getting Too High On THCV Tip #8: Change Your Environment 

Changing your environment might be a wise choice if all else fails.  Go somewhere quiet or even change rooms in your house.  If heading outdoors for a simple walk, just be cautious and ensure you are fit enough to walk.

Getting Too High On THCV Tip #9: Talk to Your Friends 

It can be good to speak with your friends when you consume too much of a highly psychoactive. They can help you through the high by talking about positive things, reassuring you, and giving you other things needed if the THCV compound is too much to handle.

Getting Too High On THCV Tip #10: Try to Sleep It Off

THCV might make you feel a little groggy and generally out of it, and in that case, if your schedule permits, the best thing you can do is just nap it off.  By the time you wake up, you’ll likely feel refreshed, with all of those negative side effects totally gone.  

If You Took Too Much THCV, There Really is No Need to Stress

Basically, tetrahydrocannabivarin is psychoactive, even if it’s only mildly so.  However, you can still end up taking a lot more than necessary, and then end up with some mild side effects.  The good news is that these side effects can be avoided.  And, even better, all Binoid THCV Products come with dosing directions.  That way, you can avoid taking too much in the first place.
