Yep, happens on occasion.
Too much, too fast. Think of it like slamming back a quart of rum in 10 minutes, instead of a few hours, it's going to fuck you up. Especially since you're not an experienced toker.
I've been smoking for decades, I'll smoke enough to get high...then if necessary, I'll "fine tune" my buzz. No hurry to get there.
On the up side, you didn't experience the dreaded giggle fit or paranoia.
