Dear Duncan: Overeating as a rookie is one thing, but if you're still overdoing commercial edibles after you’ve gotten some experience, then you need to practice more patience.

Amsterdam coffee-shop employees give overly stoned tourists cold soft drinks and snacks to help calm them down. Other cannabis users swear by eating or sniffing black peppercorns. Both tactics take a few minutes to work, if they do at all. Some tokers say that CBD can take the edge off, but others report that CBD heightens their THC intoxication or simply puts them to sleep. Olivetol, a compound produced by cannabis plants early in their lives before they produce THC, has also shown promise as a potential treatment for getting too high, but the research is limited.
