If you’re just beginning or trying a new method to consume weed you may have asked What’s The Right Cannabis Dose For Me?
It can feel confusing, scary and a little complicated too – but don’t worry, our guide to understanding cannabis dosing will help you.
Ready to dose?
Edible products are measured by the milligrams of cannabinoids contained in the product.
Marijuana edibles will typically have both the milligrams of THC and/or CBD per serving.
So let’s do a little marijuana math.
A chocolate bar may have 50 milligrams of THC. If you want 5 milligrams, divide it into 10 pieces of 5 milligrams each.
Knowing the dosage of an edible product is important because of the delayed onset time and dosage options.
Intermediate edible consumers can enjoy 5-20 mg, and experienced edible consumers can eat 20 mg or more safely.
There’s a wonderful little saying we like to call our “Marijuana Mantra”, and it goes a little something like this:
“Dose Low, Dose Slow”
It’s as simple as that – don’t go crazy at first, take your time and remember edibles take a lot longer to kick in so don’t eat a bunch and expect to feel great – you won’t.
This really does depend on the person, and level of experience and exposure to THC or CBD.
Typically, edibles can kick in anywhere from 45 minutes to 3 hours so be careful to start slow.
One of the best ways is to make something individual like gummies, or buy them from a dispensary. That way you know exactly how many mg’s are in each individual gummy so you can feel confident and safe.
Edibles are a fun, creative and easy way to consume cannabis.
Edibles can be made with cannabis distillate — an odourless and flavourless oil — or pure cannabinoid crystals, which are infused into an edible made using a fat such as butter or oil.
Plenty of recipes are available, and below you’ll see the recipe on how to make Cannabis Butter.
Remember, Cannadish Chef Says: “Heat It To Eat It!” Always make sure you decarb your weed first, before making any weed edibles.
