Guide to cannabis edible dosing

THC Edibles Dosing Guide: Our THC Edibles Dosing Guide should be used as a point of reference, but it’s important to note that everybody metabolizes cannabis differently and effects will vary from person to person. This guide focuses only on THC dosing, but many edibles contain CBD too. Keep reading to learn more about CBD edibles.

What To Do If You Overindulge: The best thing you can do is go to bed and sleep it off. Consuming too much cannabis shouldn’t hurt you.

CBD can help counteract the psychotropic effects of THC. If you’re worried about feeling too high, consider having a fast-acting CBD tincture on hand.

Edible Labels: In California both THC and CBD are required to be clearly stated on all labels. The total mg of each package and dose (serving) will be listed on the label. Cannabis labels are there for your education and should always be read.

 

Types Of Cannabis Edibles.

THC: THC edibles can be found with as low as 1mg THC to as high as 100mg THC per serving. THC edibles, depending on dose, will elicit psychoactive effects. 

CBD: CBD edibles can be used daily to help with inflammation, muscle aches, anxiety, and mood improvement. CBD on its own is non-psychoactive, but various ratios of CBD:THC are available, and depending on the ratio may present psychoactive effects. Understanding CBD ratios will help you better prepare for the effects. Learn more about CBD >>

Microdose: A low dose of THC, microdosed edibles typically contain <5mg THC. Microdose edibles are good for people who are new to cannabis, or for looking to consume during the day, and can help with focus, anxiety. When taken in tandem with CBD, microdose edibles can also help with mood stabilization.

Nanotechnology: Nanoemulsion shrinks the cannabis molecules making them more bioavailable. This results in quicker onset time, as little as 15 minutes, and stronger effects per dose.

 

Cannabis Edibles For…

Sleep: If you have trouble sleeping through the night consider taking a cannabis edible because of the long duration. If your issue is falling asleep, you’ll want something with a quicker onset time, like an inhalable or tincture. 

Pain: If you experience chronic pain, cannabis edibles can offer a significant amount of relief due to their long duration and varying potencies. If you are experiencing onset pain that comes and goes, you may want to try a topical or tincture as the effects will be felt more quickly. 

Appetite: THC for many people induces appetite and can be helpful if you are undergoing treatment that suppresses your appetite. Many people in this situation find that beverages and capsules are an easy way to consume.

Always Consult Your Doctor: If you are being seen by a doctor for a medical reason we always recommend consulting with them before introducing cannabis into your regimen.

Nausea: Studies have shown that cannabis acts as an antiemetic and can play a significant role in combating nausea. Beverages and capsules are a good way to use cannabis to help combat nausea.
