The actress also spilled tea on her past projects, including "Dawson's Creek" and "Happy Gilmore."
Julie Bowen once got so stoned she was crawling on the ground in paranoia.
While appearing on Monday's "Busy Tonight," the "Modern Family" star and Busy Philipps talked about marijuana and its many uses. While the late night host said she used to get high before a long run, Bowen said she only uses marijuana for "sleeping purposes" because it makes her super "paranoid."
"[Weed] is not for me," Bowen said. "'Cause I'm a 'who's following me?!'... I can hear spiders down the street."
To illustrate how weed isn't her thing, Bowen recalled a hilarious story involving deep paranoia and crawling on the floor. Bowen said it all began when she told her therapist she needed to be prescribed Ambien to sleep. The doctor told her that since Ambien can be "addictive," she suggested Bowen eat edibles instead.
"I'm like, 'What med school did you go to?'" Bowen said and Philipps joked, "She's a California therapist."
The actress explained that the directions on the bag of edibles, which were called "Scooby Snacks," instructed to eat "half the bag." Since that seemed like a "lot" to her, Bowen decided to be "really conservative" and only eat a quarter of the bag. However, that was more than enough.
"Cut to," Bowen began, "I was still married, living at my house at the time, me going down the hall like this."
To demonstrate, the "Horrible Bosses" star got off the late-night show's couch and crouched down on the rug in a crawling position. She explained that she was "trying to find her husband" while crawling down the hall, whispering his name super quietly.
"Five to eight hours later," Bowen said. "I was like crying, 'My doctor told me to!'"
Philipps pointed out, "Julie, you got way too high!"
