Let’s start with a very important note:

A massive thank you to CannaWorld @cannaworldsite for the tweet and link to the Your Health Gardian article below:

It’s ok. It happens. Sometimes when you least expect it.
“If you are feeling the effects of ingesting too much cannabis, then a tablespoon of honey in warm water can help reduce the intensity.”
[Ditchfield J, Thomas M, “The Medical Cannabis Guidebook”, P.G.W (2014); 132 ]
This article from leafly.com has a few more tips that will help guide you to more pleasant place.
Before you start there is an important question you need to answer. Are you currently taking any medication that, oddly, specifies you should not eat grapefruit or drink grapefruit juice in conjunction with it?
