DeGeneres, who recently appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live, reported she’s not a fan of weed but drove her sick wife Portia de Rossi to the hospital after previously consuming three infused drinks.

DeGeneres related how Portia said in March she wasn’t feeling well and planned to go to bed at 7:30 p.m. On the recommendation of Chelsea Handler, DeGeneres had decided to try some cannabis drinks that same evening.

“You have CBD or THC, I don’t know what the good is,” she told Kimmel. After drinking one, she said she felt nothing, so she drank two more and took two melatonin sleeping pills before going to bed.

“I’m in bed and I know she’s not in bed. I say, ‘Are you okay? ‘”DeGeneres said, adding that Portia was moaning.

“I get up and she’s down on all fours and I say, ‘You’re not okay … if you’re not playing Twister by yourself, you’re not okay.'”

DeGeneres then took Portia to the local emergency room. She said that her adrenaline must have been kicking in and admitted that it may not have been safe to drive after consuming the drinks and pills. “I shouldn’t say anything about it.”

Unsure what was wrong with Portia, however, she was hospitalized and had an appendix removal and the next day, DeGeneres said.

With great pain, DeGeneres recounts how Portia began offering tickets to her show in exchange for medication. Of course, the trick didn’t work, and the nurses stuck to the medication schedule.

DeGeneres told Kimmel that she’s not celebrating April 20th – which he saw Highnukkah as a great alternate name for – because she’s not a fan of weeds and how she feels about it.

“I don’t partake of the crazy tobacco or I’m not a Doobie brother,” she joked, noting that she felt like she was dying when she tried gummies to help her sleep. “To be honest, I thought I was going to die…. I was so freaked out, “she said.

Despite her dislike of pot and the way she feels about it, she says people are always making recommendations about what to try. “Oh, that’s nothing of the sort,” she said to Kimmel, which inevitably includes recommendations.

“Everyone has something that is different from the other when you try. So, no, I don’t like any of these, ”she remarked.

As for Portia, DeGeneres said to Kimmel, “She’s a lot better now.”
