What Happens If I Eat Too Much of My Edible?

While edibles can be a safe and enjoyable way to consume cannabis, it’s important to be mindful of their potency and consume them thoughtfully. When you consume an edible, the effects of THC take longer to set in and can last for a longer period of time. This means you need to be cautious not to consume too much.  If you do, you may experience unpleasant symptoms such as:

  • Elevated psychotic symptoms
  • Nausea or dizziness
  • Impaired coordination

Strains Dispensary has your guide for how to safely consume edibles to ensure you have any enjoyable experience.

Best Practices For Consuming Edibles

Whether you are consuming edibles for medical or recreational purposes, ensuring you do so thoughtfully and responsibly will allow for an enjoyable experience. When shopping for edibles, it is important to understand the dosage in each serving. Edibles have a higher concentration of THC than other methods of cannabis consumption which requires you to be more intentional with your use. To ensure you can enjoy your edible experience, we recommend that you follow the below guidelines. 

  • Check the potency: Knowing how much THC is in each serving will help you determine the appropriate dosage for your needs.
  • Start with a small amount: due to their higher concentration of THC, it is recommended to start with a small amount of your edible so that you can gauge your reaction. 
  • Be patient: Edibles take longer to take effect compared to other forms of cannabis consumption. It’s important to be patient and avoid the temptation to consume more if you don’t feel the effects immediately.
