Your Quick Guide to Dosing

If you're new to the world of MJ, you might have heard of edibles but aren't sure what they are or how they work. Basically, edibles are food or drink that has THC in it. They can be cookies, brownies, gummies, soda, coffee – you name it. Unlike smoking or vaping, which you inhale, edibles are meant to be eaten. That means the active ingredients in weed, like THC and CBD, get absorbed into your bloodstream through your digestive system instead of your lungs. That's why it can take longer to feel the effects of edibles – sometimes up to an hour.


Some people use edibles just for fun, but there are other reasons to try them too. They can help with chronic pain, headaches, nausea, vomiting, and increasing appetite. Some people use edibles for anxiety, stress, and other mental health conditions. They can also be great to take before bed since they can make you relaxed and sleepy. Just remember that everyone's different and cannabis can affect people differently, so talk to a doctor before using edibles for anything specific. Different states may also affect legality and access, so be sure to check local laws beforehand.
One of the best things about edibles is that they offer a different experience than other forms of consumption. Because the active ingredients are absorbed through your digestive system, the effects of edibles can last longer and be stronger. This can be great for people who want a more intense, longer-lasting high. But be careful because the effects of edibles can vary depending on the strain and the person taking them. That's why it's important to start with a small dose and wait at least an hour before having more. This way, you can see how the edibles affect you and hopefully avoid bad experiences.

So how do you find the right amount of edibles to take? Here's a general guide to how much you should take:

5 mg or less: You might feel a relaxed state of mind and a mild euphoria at this dose. You might also feel a bit sleepy. This is good for inexperienced users or those who are sensitive to substances.

10 mg: At this dose, you might feel a stronger sense of euphoria and relaxation. You might also have mild visual and auditory hallucinations. This is good for most users who want a moderate dose.

15-20 mg: At this dose, you might feel an intense euphoria and relaxation. You might also have strong visual and auditory hallucinations and feel like time is passing differently. This is good for experienced users or those who want a strong experience.

Remember that everyone's tolerance to weed is different, so the effects of edibles might vary from person to person. It's always a good idea to start small and increase gradually, instead of taking a lot at once.

Edibles are a convenient way to consume THC and they offer a different experience than smoking or vaping. They can be a great option for some people, but it's important to understand how they work and start with a small dose to avoid any unwanted effects. With the right knowledge and approach, edibles can be useful and enjoyable!
