How to eat and dose edibles?
There is one rule you need to know: go small and wait. The way edibles are metabolized, it takes around an hour to kick in. Also, effects are longer than you can expect. Patients report stronger body effects. Some edibles could deliver psychedelic head high if a large dose were consumed. You need to be careful, or you’ll be having a bad time.
It is hard to determine how many THC is present in homemade goodies. Professional distributors can measure it more precise, but even they struggle to know the exact dosage. Coupled with a delay between eating and feeling, it can lead to overestimating the dosage.
State laws require indicating the total dose of THC and number of servings. For example, in Colorado, 10 milligrams of THC/CBD are considered a ‘standard’ dose. It is enough to deliver mild effects.
The dose of 100 mg is much more potent, and you need to be careful while consuming it. Split the product into several portions and try to wait before eating the next piece. Just to be clear: 100 milligrams can be found in a single chocolate bar.
If you feel paranoia, can not coordinate your movement and experience hallucinations, you have an overdose. The first rule is not to panic. Try to wait for a couple of hours. Stay hydrated and eat something else.
Always pay attention to the package. Check the dosage. Find out your comfortable way to consume edibles. Don’t be shy and experiment. Remember: you can not be precise when you cook your homemade edibles. Don’t overdo it.
Edibles are a convenient way to ingest marijuana and a healthy alternative to smoking. It is still a long way to strict regulations for edible testing and accurate labeling, so be sure that you are careful when consuming these delicious treats.
