Edibles for Beginners

Edibles, which are food products infused with marijuana, are a popular and smoke-free way to safely partake of marijuana, whether for recreational or medical use.

Safe Usage

Your local dispensary has a number of tasty treats available. The variety ranges from cookies to gummies and everything in between. Whether you like chocolate, fruit or pastries, there is something for everyone to munch on. Know the precautions of edibles before consuming them, though. They’re fun and get the job done, but there are warnings before eating them!

Don’t overdo it! Every experienced user has a horror story about the time the edibles weren’t working, so they took 3 more. Understand that it can take up to two hours for the full effects to kick in. The last thing you want is to have so much THC in your system that you feel panicky and can’t relax. That is the opposite effect that marijuana should have.

Know how much marijuana is in the edible. Beginners should choose something that has around two and seven milligrams, while more seasoned users can withstand between 15 and 30 milligrams. Start small and work your way up.

Ask your budtender questions. That is the whole reason that they work at the dispensary and are happy to help you.

If you enjoy the effects of cannabis but don’t like to smoke, there are alternatives. Know your tolerance and be safe while partaking.
