Welcome to the world of edibles, where food meets fun. Edibles are the perfect combination of deliciousness and THC goodness, tantalizing our taste buds since the dawn of cannabis culture.
From your grandma’s homemade brownies to high-end artisanal chocolates, edibles have come a long way over the years. But with so many different edibles now available, it can be hard to know where to start if you’re new.
Fear not. We’re here with an edibles dosing guide so you can get the perfect dose of your favorite treat. Plus, you’ll learn why edibles differ from smoking or vaping, the importance of starting low and going slow, and how to safely store edibles to maximize their shelf life.
Understanding the Basics of Edibles and Dosing
To get started, let’s discuss the basics of edibles. What are they, and how do they differ from smoking or vaping cannabis?
Unlike smoking or vaping, edibles take much longer to take effect. This is because the THC must be metabolized in the liver before it enters your bloodstream and produces the desired results. This process usually takes 1-2 hours, so make sure you’re patient when waiting for your edibles to kick in.
Edibles come in many different shapes, sizes, and types. At DDM, you can find chocolates, gummies, baked goods, drinks, chews, hard candy, and lozenges — all infused with high-quality cannabis and THC.
Eating edibles has some advantages over smoking or vaping:
- It’s easier on your lungs.
- It’s highly discreet.
- You can control your dosage more precisely.
- The effects tend to last longer than inhalation methods.
- You can find edibles that cater to your dietary needs (gluten-free, vegan, etc.).
How to Determine Your Ideal Dose
When it comes to edibles, there’s no one-size-fits-all approach. The ideal dose for you depends on several factors, including your metabolism and tolerance.
Different strengths and potencies of edibles are available, so make sure you understand the difference between them. For example, a low-dose product (such as 2.5mg or 5mg per serving) is a great way to start if you’re new to edibles. As your tolerance increases over time, you can increase your dose accordingly.
It’s also helpful to use a “microdosing” approach when it comes to edibles. This means starting with a minimal dose and waiting at least two hours before deciding if you’d like to consume more. That way, you can find the correct amount for your needs without overdoing it or ending up too high.
Don’t forget to keep track of what you take — it’s easy to forget how much you’ve eaten if you’ve had multiple servings. Too much THC can lead to a bad experience, so ensure you know how much you’ve consumed.
Tips for Getting the Most Out of Your Edibles
Once you’ve found the right edibles for you, you can do a few things to make the most of your experience.
- Select only high-quality products from experienced dispensaries. Quality and potency matter, so make sure you know where your edibles come from.
- Don’t be afraid to ask for help. At DDM, our cannabis experts can provide you with tips and advice tailored to your needs.
- Start low and slow. Begin with a smaller dose and gradually increase until you find what works for you.
- Be sure you store your edibles properly. Like with any food, edibles can go bad if not stored correctly. Keep your edible products in a cool, dark place away from direct sunlight and heat.
- Try to avoid mixing edibles with other substances. It may be tempting to increase the effects of edibles by combining them with other substances, but this can be dangerous.
- Take your edibles with food. Eating edibles on an empty stomach can make the effects stronger and more intense. Having a little food in your system can help even the effects and make them last longer.
- Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate. Consuming edibles can cause dry mouth, so drink plenty of water before and after to stay comfortable.
- Have fun and be safe. Remember, edibles are meant to be enjoyed responsibly. Don’t operate heavy machinery or do anything you wouldn’t normally do while under the influence.
Edibles offer a sublime cannabis experience, and with a little know-how, you’ll get the desired results every time. With the right strain and dose, you can relax in a new way and explore all the benefits that edibles have to offer.
