Marijuana edibles have seen a spike in popularity the past few weeks. With the coronavirus tearing through the world, medical experts have warned people against smoking. It attacks the respiratory system, and smoking puts you at greater risk of developing serious symptoms and succumbing to the virus.
However, you still need your daily dose of cannabis, and if you’re a beginner, now is definitely the best time to start. Despite the fact that edibles are a far safer option compared to smoking, they tend to get a bad rap, especially with new users. With the right approach, though, edibles can become your most preferred method for consuming cannabis.
Dosing is where most new beginners fail. The average edible is much stronger than a joint, and you have to take that into account. Many a beginner has had an entire batch of edibles in ignorance and lived to regret it.
For new users, microdosing is a good way to go. A microdose of 1-5mg of THC will take the edge off, leaving you feeling a little high, but still sharp and focused. It’s like swimming, you don’t jump into the deep end on your first day. You have to work towards it.
A medium dose of 5-10 mg of THC will leave you feeling distinctly high, but not too high. Think of it like wading between the shallow and deep ends. You’ve got some swimming experience now, but not enough to be comfortable in the deep end.
Anything above 10mg of THC is a macro dose, and it is reserved for the veterans. If you have extensive experience with marijuana and edibles especially, this is for you.
What should you consider before purchasing an edible? Well, you should always be wary of what you put in your body, and the best way to do that would be to study the ingredients. Anything that seems too wordy or ‘sciencey’ should immediately raise your antenna.
Price too should be a factor. You should be wary if the product seems too affordable. Something may have been compromised or corners may have been cut to reach such a low price. Opt for a quality product and make sure you read online reviews before making any purchases.
Lastly, don’t forget that edibles take longer to kick in. They first have to be digested before the THC is transported to the liver to be metabolized. This can take anything from thirty minutes to an hour or two to kick in.
It depends on how much THC is present, the type of edible, metabolism, sex, weight, and tolerance to cannabis. The only way you’ll know is through experience, and if you’re a beginner, a microdose would be the best start towards understanding how your body responds to cannabis. This may be the reason why cannabis sector players like Sugarmade Inc. (OTCQB: SGMD) emphasize that customers read as much as they can about a cannabis product before buying it.
