Learning how to take edibles gets filed under “very necessary” if you’re a cannabis enthusiast looking to expand your THC horizons or want to use such products for medical purposes. Taking edibles the “right way” is important to avoid getting too high, which can result in nausea, vomiting, and general discomfort. Use the following tips to avoid getting too high and potentially feeling sick and paranoid.
Read the Instructions
Do yourself a favor when learning how to take edibles: read the instructions. Every package of edibles available through our organic cannabis delivery service features dosage instructions, so you know exactly how much THC you are ingesting. Edibles might look and taste like candy or chocolate, but they still contain THC. A whole lot of THC.
Think About Your Normal Smoking Regimen
Give due consideration to your normal smoking activities before taking edibles. Do you smoke every day? If so, how much? Is smoking a once-in-a-while treat? Do you only smoke when your friends have “flower” available? If you have smoked every day for years, you can probably handle a larger edible dose, such as 40 or 50 mg. If you smoke infrequently, 10 or 20 mg will likely suffice. Regardless, it is important to start slow and allow what you have ingested to work its magic.
Don’t Make This Classic Mistake
Don’t make the mistake so many do when they take edibles. This mistake is so common there’s a meme about it: Taking edibles. 1. Not high. 2. Not high. 3. Still not high. 4. Not high. 5. Please take me to the emergency room.
The emergency room part is a bit of an exaggeration, but it gets the point across. People take edibles and don’t feel anything, so they take more and more. Edibles are often slower-acting than smoking, because the body has to digest them. When you finally do feel stoned, you’ve already taken five more 10mg candies. Now you’re too high. As mentioned above, start slow. Give yourself about an hour to see what happens. If you do not feel high enough, take more, but remember to go the slow route always.
Keep these tips in mind to avoid the nausea associated with feeling too high!
