Cannabis edibles have become more and more popular as people accept the benefits that marijuana provides. The fact that marijuana has become legal in more states, it makes it easier for cannabis product providers to make edibles and sell them. Some people don’t like to smoke either and therefore, cannabis edibles are the ideal option. For the weed lovers, this is good news. However, there is a warning. Before you ingest any type of edibles, be sure to read the label to see the THC level so you know the dosage. There are dosage rules when it comes to cannabis edibles. So, the creators of these products have to know the dosage rules for safe consumption.
For many years, people ingested weed by smoking it. You could light up a joint or a glass bong and be rewarded with the THC effects, which includes a noticeable high, depending on how much of it you consumed and how high the THC level. With cannabis edibles, you have to wait for an effect. It just doesn’t come right away. It takes about an hour or more to feel the effect. Sometimes, marijuana users, especially the novice will be waiting for that high and think it is not coming, only to eat more of the edibles and then find out an hour or so later the paranoia and other intense effects to be more than they can handle. You don’t want to go there. Let’s look at how the dosage rules can make a difference.
10 MG Dosage Rule
There are various things that have a say in how people react to cannabis edibles. If you are a novice, you will probably wonder why it is so powerful. However, in addition to the right dosage, metabolism is one thing that plays an integral role. For example, a 300 pound athlete has a faster metabolism and so will feel the THC effects of cannabis edibles much faster than the average person. Another aspect of feeling the high from edibles is whether you have had a meal or not. You should not ingest it on an empty stomach. Of course, you don’t need to eat a huge meal, but you must have food in the stomach, even if you have to munch on something. The most impact will be felt from how much you consume and this is where the 10MG dosage rule comes into play.
The Novice and Experienced
If you are a novice at this, it is best to start with 5mg instead of 10 mg. If you are using more CBD, then the dosage can be higher. It should be reduced if the THC is at a higher level. Most cannabis edibles will have at least 2 percent of THC level. Make sure you use marijuana strains with lower THC levels. If you are experienced with this, then 10 mg is the dosage rule for cannabis edibles. If you want to have more, then wait for an hour or two before consuming another 5mg or 10mg dose. Taking the lower options is best when you have already consumed the 10mg dose.
Other Dosage Rule Tips
When you are purchasing cannabis edibles, you should pay close attention in the instructions on the label or bottle. If you purchase a chocolate bar or brownie, for example and it contains 80mg THC, it means you should not consume it in just one sitting. You should only eat a small portion (5mg or 10mg) and leave the rest for another time. Don’t be greedy. The delicious taste may tempt you, but maintain some discipline and resolve. One more thing: do not drink alcohol when you are eating cannabis edibles. The impact could be more than you can handle. If you want to learn more, visit the Cannabis Training University.
