Buying And Using Cannabis Edibles For The First Time

Health & Medical Blog

Consuming cannabis orally is one of the best ways to use it. You do not have to worry about throat irritation, and cannabis tends to last longer when taken orally than when smoked. However, when you first start taking cannabis edibles, there can be a bit of a learning curve as you become more familiar with them and how your body reacts to them. Here are a few tips that should help you out when you buy and use cannabis edibles for the first time.

Buy something you can divide.

The first time you take cannabis, you will want to take a fairly low dose and see how your body reacts. People often take half of the standard dose their first time around. So, make sure you choose an edible that you can divide fairly easily. Gummies work well for this. You can usually use a butter knife to cut a gummy in half without too much struggle. Snack-type edibles, like infused caramel corn or chips, can work, too. Just check what the serving size is and consume half of that the first time around.

Don't plan on getting anything done.

Ultimately, your goal may be to take cannabis edibles before work or before important activities. But you don't want to count on getting anything done the first time you take edibles. You will instead want to relax, see how the edibles affect you, and know that you're not under pressure to do anything important. So, you should plan on doing something lighthearted and non-demanding that day, such as watching a movie or playing a board game with your partner.

Don't panic and take a second dose.

So often, someone will take an edible, not feel anything, and then take more. Then, both doses kick in, and they realize they have taken too much. Edibles can take an hour or more to kick in. So, it is wise to take your initial dose and stick with it. You will eventually feel its effects. Ride them out before deciding whether the effects were intense enough. If you would like to experience more next time, then take a larger dose next time ā€” long after the first dose has worn off.

Before long, you'll be taking edibles like a pro! But the first time around, it really is wise to take things slow, stick to a small dose, and follow the other advice offered here. For more information, contact a company like Leaf & Flower.
