What do comedowns from cannabis feel like, and how can you feel better?
The effects of cannabis can vary in time depending on how you take it (smoked, eaten), but they generally last from 1–8 hours. Most comedowns from cannabis are mild and start shortly after the effects wear off.
The comedown from cannabis can be unpleasant or unpredictable when mixed with alcohol and other drugs or prescription medications.
