Edibles are a popular and convenient form of consuming cannabis. Edibles come in a variety of forms, from gummies and lozenges, to baked goods, and more. If you are looking to try edibles for the first time it’s important to understand how to properly dose them so you can have the best experience possible. 

Learn more about how to dose edible cannabis, right here at Strains Dispensary.

Dosing Guide 

1-5 milligrams- The lowest dosage available at dispensaries is usually 5 mg. If you want to make the dosage even lower for yourself you can break apart the edible into smaller pieces. 

5-15 milligrams- This range of milligrams can provide more potent effects for people looking to experience relief from pain, stress, or anxiety. 

15-30 milligrams- if you are a regular cannabis user and have taken edibles before this range of dosage might be ideal for your tolerance. The effects are more potent and last longer. 

30-50 milligrams and higher- For those accustomed to edibles or those who have a hard time absorbing cannabinoids, the 30-50 mg range might be the perfect amount to experience things like insomnia relief and euphoric feelings.

Start With 5 Milligrams of THC

Whether you are a long-time cannabis user or you are just now getting into trying it, you should always begin with a low dose when it comes to taking edibles, and 5 milligrams is the perfect place to start. The reason for this is that everyone’s body metabolizes cannabinoids differently so it’s always better to start with too low of a dose because you can always go up from there. 

Wait One Hour for Effects 

Patience is key when it comes to edibles because it takes a while to absorb into your system unlike smoking which delivers an instant effect. You may not feel like the first dose was high enough but it’s important to wait it out before taking more because you want to avoid accidentally overdoing it. 

Always remember to start off low and slow if it’s your first time experimenting with edible cannabis. As you build up a tolerance you can add increments of 5 mg until you find the perfect amount that is right for you.
