Edibles – what is the limit? When is enough, enough?
If you are in need of medical marijuana, or you’re just trying out edibles recreationally for the first time, it’s important to understand how much to use at once. Use too much and you’ll be very uncomfortable and in for quite an unpleasant experience. Use too little of the marijuana edibles and you won’t feel the desired effects. That’s why you should take the time to learn the ideal level to consume, and then make sure that you don’t go overboard.
How Much to Consume
In general, a single person shouldn’t go over edibles with more than 10 mg of THC in them. This should be considered the upper limit for a new user that isn’t sure what his or her tolerance is. This is generally enough for most people to feel a strong effect, and it’s possible that it is too much as well. If you are smaller in size, or very inexperienced with marijuana, it might be best to start out with 5 mg of THC and gauge the effect from that first before moving up to a higher amount.
Start off Low
It’s much better to consume too little THC than it is to have too much. It doesn’t matter if you are having organic cannabis candy, marijuana cookies, or something else, just find out what the THC level is in them and take it very slow. You don’t want to go overboard, and if you don’t eat enough at first, you can always up the amount in half an hour or so when you don’t feel enough of a difference.
Edibles are a convenient way to consume marijuana, and they’re generally believed to be healthier because you don’t have to inhale smoke in order to enjoy them. As long as you are careful about the amount you consume, you can have a very good experience with edibles.
