A Guide to Edibles
Edibles are food items that have been infused with cannabis, cannabis concentrates, or cannabinoids. Potencies range greatly and edibles impact the body differently than smoking or vaping. Additionally, the unique metabolism and biological makeup of patients mean that edibles can have varying effect.
Begin with either a low-dose product or a small single serving.
Wait to see how you feel. Edibles can take 1-2 hours to take full effect.
Do not take any other controlled substances, including alcohol.
Find a secure way to store your edibles. Make sure this is unaccessible to kids, pets or anyone under 21.
Edibles are more intense when consumed on an empty stomach. Eat a nutritious meal before taking your THC dose.
CBD to the Rescue
1-5 mg is where a new patient should begin. Starting at this low dose will reveal whether ingesting cannabis can be a comfortable experience for you.
5-10 mg is generally considered to be one serving. Consuming more is not recommended.
10-15 mg, or higher, is a dose that is specifically for those with a strong medical need or tolerance.
