Responsible Dosage Guide – How to Consume Edibles

Are you curious about how much edible is the right amount for you?

With anything you try for the first time, starting slow and taking your time is essential if you want to avoid having a bad experience. If you go too hard at the start, you’re going to have a bad experience, which may forever turn you off edibles. Take it slowly, learn to understand your tolerances, and what works for you, and you’ll be more likely to have a pleasurable experience well into the future.

Cannabis Edibles Dosage Guide

The cannabis edibles dosage chart above shows you approximately how much you should take to achieve the desired result depending on your tolerance level to cannabis. If you have never smoked, you’re going to be in the minimum tolerance range. If you smoke a few times a week, you’ll find yourself in the medium tolerance column, and if you smoke several times a day, then you’ll be in the high tolerance column.

Start Low and Go Slow

One of the biggest problems people have with cannabis edibles in Toronto dispensaries is that they start with an amount that’s too high, and they consume too much too quickly. The only way to understand your tolerance for any cannabis edibles is to start slowly and take your time. There are a variety of different types of edibles, and how your body processes those edibles will depend on several factors, including:

  • How fast your metabolism is
  • What you have eaten and drank previously to taking the edible
  • How big or small you are
  • The type of edible you have chosen to take.

Taking any type of edibles will involve a lot of trial and error, and it’s essential that you don’t rush in based on one good experience. Take your time and learn how your processes different types and strengths of edibles before taking too much.

Microdosing with Edibles

Microdosing is the process of taking small amounts of edibles more frequently to achieve the desired results. You aim to experience the benefits of the edibles without getting too high by taking the smallest possible dose more frequently. So, for example, instead of taking 5mg at a time, you would take 1mg spread out over the same amount of time that you would usually expect 5mg to last.

With microdosing, you’re more likely to have a better experience with your edibles and less likely to take too much and have a bad time. When you take too much of a cannabis edible, the results can be quite traumatic and often leave you feeling like you’re going to be suffering for a long time!

The good news is that if you take too much of any cannabis edibles, CBD could be the solution to your problems. Cannabidiol (CBD) can reduce THC’s effects by blocking THC’s ability to bind with the receptors in the Endocannabinoid System (ECS). So, if you think that you’ve had a little too much, then taking some CBD preemptively may be an excellent way to reduce the effects of too much THC.

Cannabis Edibles Dosage Guide

Cannabis edibles can be a great way to experience the effects of cannabis when you take your time to get the dosage right. If you rush straight into cannabis edibles and take too much, it’s going to take a little while for you to get the courage up and try again.
