Additionally, you may experience headaches, dizziness, and breathing issues. If you suspect that your reaction to cannabis is abnormal, contact your physician. If you take some other medicine, consult your doctor on its interaction with cannabis. However, it’s always good to know possible risks you may face when using marijuana.

If you’re doubtful about THC side effects, consider:
- Drinking water. Hydration helps to alleviate side effects and keep you healthy.
- Trying a high-CBD strain (ACDC, Harlequin) because CBD may help to curb the side effects of THC and provide a cozy experience without the psychoactive influence of THC.
- Starting slow and dosing carefully. Consume consciously and start with a small amount of high-THC products to see how you feel. Increase dosage step by step but don’t overdo it.
- Using an oil-filled vape. If you don’t like smoking or edibles are too strong for you, try a pen. Using it, you’ll get the full control of dosing, inhale mild vapor and ensure moderate effects.
- Dosing edibles carefully. Start with a 5mg dose and wait. Then add a little bit more. Listen to your body.
