Organic Care of California BLOG

 Here is a few Blogs written by the owners Chaz & Shantel Cornellier about the industry and things they have experienced or learned while owning a cannabis delivery service in Chico, Ca in 2017 under Prop 215 and then moving to Sacramento to own a State Liscensed Delivery, C9-0000003-LIC, immediately in 2018. It has been a crazy ride and Chaz loves to explain what the market is doing and how he sees the company doing in the near future.

Clearing the Haze: Quick Tips to Sober Up from Cannabis


Hello, fellow cannabis enthusiasts! It's your friendly neighborhood dispensary owner here from Sacramento, California, bringing you some insider tips on how to quickly sober up after enjoying our favorite plant. As someone deeply involved in the cannabis industry and a long-time advocate for responsible use, I know that sometimes you need to clear your head faster than expected. Whether it's for a sudden work call or an unexpected responsibility, here's how you can regain clarity in a jiffy.

1. Understand Your Body and Strain

Firstly, it's essential to understand how your body reacts to different strains. Indica, Sativa, or hybrid - each has its unique effects. Sativas are more cerebral and might make you feel "head high," while Indicas are known for their "body high." If you need to sober up, knowing your reaction to these strains can be a lifesaver.

2. Hydration is Key

Dehydration can exacerbate the feeling of being high. So, make sure to drink plenty of water. This doesn't mean guzzling gallons in one go – sipping water steadily can help your body metabolize the cannabinoids faster.

3. Lemon and Black Pepper: Nature's Remedy

A well-known trick in our cannabis community is the lemon and black pepper method. Terpenes like limonene in lemon and caryophyllene in black pepper can synergistically help in reducing THC's intensity. Chew on a few black peppercorns or sniff them, and pair that with some fresh lemon juice or zest.

4. CBD to the Rescue

CBD can counteract some of THC's psychoactive effects. Having a CBD-dominant strain or a CBD tincture on hand can be incredibly useful for those times when you need to sober up quickly.

5. Fresh Air and a Short Walk

Never underestimate the power of fresh air and a little exercise. A brisk walk in a safe environment can help clear your mind. It stimulates blood flow and helps your body process the THC faster.

6. Healthy Snacks

Sometimes, a drop in blood sugar can intensify your high. Having a healthy snack can stabilize your sugar levels and help you feel more grounded. Opt for fruits, nuts, or a sandwich - something light and nutritious.

7. Engage Your Mind

Engage in an activity that requires focus and concentration. It could be a puzzle, a video game, or even a stimulating conversation. This can divert your mind and help you regain control of your senses.

8. A Cold Shower

A cold shower can be a shock to the system, in a good way. It can invigorate your senses and give you a jolt of energy, helping you shake off the grogginess.

9. Rest if You Can

If you have the luxury of time, sometimes the best thing to do is rest. A short nap can allow your body to metabolize the cannabis, and you might wake up feeling much more clear-headed.

10. Mind Over Matter

Remember, a significant part of the cannabis experience is psychological. Staying calm and reminding yourself that the high is temporary can be incredibly powerful.

Bonus Tip: Plan Ahead

As a dispensary owner, my biggest advice is to plan your cannabis consumption. Understanding your limits and the right time to indulge can prevent the need to sober up quickly in the first place.

Closing Thoughts: Remember, these tips are to help you in a pinch, but the best way to enjoy cannabis is responsibly and in a safe environment. Until next time, stay safe and savor the journey!
