How to dose edibles for beginners!

With legalization a reality in Canada, many people have raised the question of how much of a pot brownie should they really eat? For beginners this challenge is more difficult because the “high” time span is much different than with smoking pot- its longer! So basically you want to make sure you get the right dose and don’t end up eating your entire refrigerator of food, or “greening out”. 

1 gram is equivalent to 1000 mg. 

Now many people can go through 1 g of smoking cannabis but 1000 mg in an edible is a lot! Most edibles are within 10- 100 mg per pack and most legacy brands portray better education on the products than the government legislated packaging licensed producers are supposed to use. 

If you are making your own cannabis products at home, try following a recipe of someone who has already measured out a specific amount of cannabis extract to dose each edible product. 

Edibles also vary within themselves, THC molecules bind to fatty substances, therefore certain edibles with a higher fat content may soak up more THC, and therefore be stronger. Always make sure to research the recipe and start low. 

Beginners should start out at 10mg and slowly work their way up from there. The saying “start low and go slow” should definitely be applied here!
