Using cannabis will not kill you. Did you know? There have not been any records of people dying due to using weed. It is generally pretty safe as long as you use it responsibly.

Some side effects of using too much weed can include:

  • Tired all the time
  • Feeling more anxiety
  • Lower blood pressure
  • Increase in heartbeat

There is not a lot that you can do if you “overdose” on THC in cannabis. The best thing is just to wait until the effects wear off by themselves.

High THC Cannabis Products

High THC products include cannabis concentrates such as shatter and hash Canada products. They are really popular due to the intense effects that you can experience after using them.

Some of our best cannabis concentrates products include the Afghan hash and the Polar Bear hash that we are selling at a discount!

THC Distillates

What are THC distillates? These products have been extracted from the marijuana plant and gone through a distillation process. 

As a result, you will be getting a THC product that is 100% THC. This is very high!

Additionally, a boiling process is done to get rid of any terpenes that are not needed in the distillate. Typically, distillates have no flavour or taste. 

The result is something that looks translucent yet sticky. It is very high in THC and can be consumed in a variety of ways such as in edibles or through vaping.

The benefits of distillate include:

  • Reduce pain
  • Reduce inflammation
  • Lower the chances of inflammation
  • Boost appetite
  • Helps with nausea

Weed Concentrates

Weed concentrates are the best kind of cannabis that gives you one of the highest potency of cannabis.

It is made with highly desirable cannabis extract and can contain anywhere from 40 to 80% of THC.

The weed concentrate product above is our White Widow Shatter. It has a bud grade of AAAA and is highly potent.

A cannabis flower usually contains just 10-25% of THC or CBD. So, having up to 80% THC in weed concentrates is very high and should not be consumed by an amateur weed user.

Concentrates are different compared to distillates. They usually include all the important cannabinoids and terpenes, while excluding all the undesirable parts of the cannabis.

This means that using weed concentrates will give you a very intense high. Do not consume more than you need!

Methods of Cannabis Consumption 

There are a few ways you can consume cannabis. This gives you plenty of options! Some people prefer smoking weed, while others may want to vape or use edibles instead.

Regardless of what method you choose, the effects will remain the same as long as the THC and CBD are equal.

If you want to experience a better high, use more THC. For medicinal benefits only, use CBD products.


Smoking is the traditional way of using cannabis. It will hit you almost instantly. 

Methods to smoke weed include using pre-rolled joints, blunts, or even pipes.

When you inhale the burning cannabis buds, you are absorbing this cannabis smoke directly into your bloodstream.

Effects will last for 30 minutes up to 4 hours.


This method is only for people that want very fast-acting high effects. It is a popular way to smoke cannabis concentrates.

With dabbing, you are using a vaporizer to heat the concentrates. Using a dab rig will also give you similar results. 


Using a THC vape pen is extremely popular. One of the main reasons is that it is portable and can be discreet.

Effects are pretty much instant and no smoke will be released when you vape. In this way, you can pretty much do this anywhere you want.

The fact that you are not burning any cannabis means that your lungs will also be protected from harmful smoke.


Edibles Canada is completely different from smoking and vaping. The effects will take hours before it hits you.

Thus, you mustn’t take too many edibles in the beginning. 

Since the edibles need to be metabolized in the liver first, the effects can take up to 1 hour to come. However, it will stay in your system for up to 6 to 8 hours or longer.

Be mindful of how many edibles you use. It can be tempting to take a lot due to its attractive packaging that often looks like yummy candies.


Cannabis topicals such as CBD creams and lotion will also give you the effects of weed. This is beneficial for anyone who does not want to smoke, vape, eat, or use any form of cannabis at all.

Topicals will be applied to your skin just like any other regular lotion. It targets one section of your skin, known to reduce acne and inflammation.

You won’t get high from using topicals.

Final Thoughts on Can You Overdose on THC

The tolerance that you have will determine how much THC you can at a given time. Just compare this to drinking: If you can tolerate more alcohol, you can drink more without getting drunk. 

A lightweight person could get drunk with just one cup of alcohol.

Similar to cannabis, THC affects everyone differently. You may be able to smoke more weed compared to your peers and vice versa.

If you have been using weed for many years now, there is a good chance that you can tolerate more cannabis in one sitting.

New cannabis users should take all products slowly in low dosages. Increase your dosage over time. In this way, you don’t get too much THC at once in your body.
