How Much Marijuana Can I Safely Take?

The possibility of marijuana being imminently fatal from overdose is very small. However, it is for this reason that marijuana has the most dangerous consequences. Marijuana clouds judgment, which greatly increases the risk of overdose every time marijuana is smoked or eaten. Users can build a tolerance to marijuana. Since marijuana overdoses greatly increase the building of tolerance, it is likely that individuals will steadily need more and more marijuana to get high.

What Does Overdosing on Marijuana Do?

The overdose symptoms of marijuana are as follows:

  • Paranoia
  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Increased heart rate
  • Increased risk of heart attack
  • Hallucination
  • Greatly increased chance of lung cancer (if smoked)
  • Increased risk of overdosing on any other drug being used
  • Decreased ability to focus or remember
  • Reduced immune system performance

Since marijuana increases heart rate and the affects of marijuana can last for several hours, marijuana users risk exhausting their hearts and subsequent heart attacks after just one overdose. Hallucinations caused by marijuana, with repeated overdoses, can last long enough to be mistaken for schizophrenia. The negative effects of marijuana on focus and memory further impair an individual’s judgment, increasing the chances of repeated overdose.

What Should I Do If I Have Marijuana Overdose Symptoms?

If you start experiencing these symptoms and are on a prescription for marijuana, contact your doctor immediately and ask for alternative treatments as you are at a high risk for addiction. After speaking to your doctor, seek a professional counselor to determine any psychological addiction that may have developed.

If you are using marijuana without a prescription, remember that the main reason marijuana is so dangerous is that it does not appear to be dangerous. The consequences of marijuana overdose, especially consistently overdosing, can lead to debilitating consequences. Seek a professional rehab center to assist your recovery from addiction immediately.
