Understanding how edible dosage works can mean the difference between a fantastic edibles experience and a truly awful one. If you’ve never tried an edible, you may be wondering what it feels like.
What happens with a good edible experience?
Cannabis affects each person very differently. Some people are extremely sensitive to effects, while others might not feel much at all. When you have a good experience with edibles, you may feel a combination of the following:
- sensitive to light, color, sound, touch, taste, and smell
What happens with a bad edibles experience?
The wrong dosage can lead to undesired effects such as:
- high blood pressure
- nausea and vomiting
- racing heartbeat
If you are apprehensive about using edibles for the first time, we’re here to help you find the right dosage for you.
Edible dosage for beginners
When you are new to cannabis, getting the proper dosage is crucial toward your enjoyment of the edible. Contrary to what your friends may say, high THC is not always best. First, start low and go slow. The effects of edibles take a few hours to be felt. Unlike smoking, the cannabinoids must be digested and work through your system before you will feel the effect. For this reason, many people get the dosage in cannabis chocolate all wrong and end up consuming more than their body can tolerate. It is important to start low, somewhere around 10-15mg of THC the first time. The W.W. Treats 150mg chocolate bars are mini-sized individually wrapped pieces designed for controlled dosing in a 5-pack 150mg package. Start with a quarter piece of the bar the first time. Allow up to two hours before finishing the bar. If two hours has passed, and you still feel like you need more, eat another quarter of the mini bar, and so on until you reach the desired dose. Make note of how much the chocolate you ate. Next time, eat exactly that dose.
If you are not sure how much cannabinoids are in your edibles, you can enter the label’s information into an edible dosing calculator.
If you see that small doses are not meeting your needs, look for a stronger version of the same edible for consistency. Our full size 300mg medical cannabis chocolate bar is a stronger option for those who require a strong edible.
