But everyone’s bad trip will vary. You never truly know what’s going in your friend’s mind during a situation like this. Be respectful of what they’re going through. Let them know you’re there for them, but also give them space. People will sometimes feel sensitive and ashamed of being in a bad trip and will want to be left alone. Just make sure they know it’s ok and leave if that’s the case.
First of all, get away from your friends for a while and sit down somewhere peaceful. Grab a sugary drink or just some water on the way. Relax and try to take slow, deep breaths. Have something sweet to eat like cookies or a piece of cake. Sugar will always help in these situations. You may also try coffee if you’re a regular drinker. If not, stay away from it as it might worsen the situation.
Considering your environment is key. This means, if you’re worried about having a bad trip, don’t smoke with people or in places you feel uncomfortable with. Wait until you’re settled in an atmosphere that feels right, with people you feel safe and happy around. Also, music can make a big impact. If you’re in a noisy club with a group full of strangers, this can make a bad trip even worse. For many, listening to one’s favourite music at a reasonable level is a good way to keep the vibes equalised.

What To Do When You’re Having A Bad Cannabis Trip
Let us take this opportunity to say that if you’re out partying, stick to only one substance. Don’t mix alcohol with weed if you’re not used to doing so.
Avoid loud music and loud conversations. Go outside and get some fresh air if you have that option. Close your eyes, as long as it doesn’t make you feel dizzy. Spending too long focussing on yourself won’t help the situation either.
