Finder the Right Edible Dosage
Humans have been smoking weed for over 2000 years, it is by no means a new phenomenon. Edibles on the other hand are a relatively new technology in comparison. And with the rising legalization of cannabis, edibles are continuously progressing and taking new forms. Back in the day, all you really heard about were weed brownies and cookies. Nowadays you can get cannabis-infused almost anything, from ice cream to popsicles humans have found a way to add weed to it. Many people prefer taking edibles to enjoy the effects of cannabis without actually smoking. And for a lot of people who have never smoked before and have no interest in smoking, this is the only cannabis consumption route besides vaping.
After experimenting with edibles a lot I can safely say that there is a pretty huge difference between eating my cousin’s weed brownies and eating cannacandy that was made professionally. While it’s obviously possible to get ‘too high’ from smoking weed, let me tell you it is a lot easier to get too high from edibles, especially when the THC content is almost completely unknown. Edibles also tend to last a lot longer than other forms of ingesting cannabis. While smoking typically wears off within a couple of hours, edibles can last up to 8 hours or longer depending on the dosage.
Smoking weed and eating weed are two completely different things, and some would argue that it’s almost a completely different high. When smoking, you can feel the effects within seconds or minutes, whereas with edibles the effects usually take around 30-60 minutes and sometimes even longer. When taking large doses of edibles, many have likened the effects to a borderline psychedelic experience. One of many reasons it can be incredibly important to get your dosage right if that’s not quite what you’re looking for. Luckily with the abundance of options of professional-grade edibles going around the market these days, finding the right dosage for you has never been easier.
If you’re new to edibles, just picking up your first candies from a dispensary it can be an enticing option to just go with whatever the serving size is. However, in places like Colorado where the recommended serving size on edible packaging is 10mg of THC, you could be in for a bad time. For beginners starting with around 2.5mg of THC is recommended, possibly 5 at the most. For some people, 5mg would be enough to get a pleasant high, and for others, you might not feel a thing. It’s important to experiment and find your own dosage to get the experience you’re looking for. Some people go up to 30mg for a pleasant euphoric effect, whereas others might go as high as 50 or 100mg for extreme pain relief. However, I would only recommend the most experienced users to go that high.
Just play around with the dosage and eventually, you’ll find what’s right for you, just make sure to start low!
