But before you mack down that entire brownie, read some helpful information about how to consume edibles.
How to Consume Marijuana Edibles
Edibles are an amazingly convenient way for medical and recreational consumers to enjoy their medical marijuana, but you should know a few things before you dig in.
A typical "starter" dose for edibles is between 5-10mg of THC. That's enough for most people to start to "feel something" - and for some folks it's actually all they need.
Edibles typically take about 45 minutes to 1.25 hours to start to kick in, though this can easily vary based on the speed of your metabolism, your size/weight, and if you already have food in your stomach. Your tolerance will also have a say in all this too.
Start small, such as with a 5mg dose, which may require cutting your edible into pieces. Wait 45 minutes or an hour (sometimes more, too). If you're not "feeling it" then you can slowly and gradually up your dosage, but it will always take a while to kick it. Take your time. You can always have more. An edibles high will come on more gradually and often last much longer than a "smoked" high. Expect to be under the influence for 4-8 hours.
Consuming your edible with a "fat" is said to improve THC uptake. Think yogurt, butter.
Don't overdo it! Think of it like this (loosely): 5mg of THC is like a having a single drink. Eating a whole 100mg brownie is like drinking a bottle of whiskey. Know your limits!
If you accidentally over-consume, don't worry, we've all been there at least once. Go someplace quiet and cozy, drink water, curl up, put on your favorite music, have a friend nearby to chat with, sleep it off. In the unlikely even that you need medical attention, be forthright with the physician about how much you consumed. Most likely they'll just have you sleep it off, but even getting to this point is totally dependent upon you being a responsible consumer. Go light and enjoy!
