Many people think that consuming marijuana edibles isn’t a big thing. Were you also thinking the same? If yes, then, we think you need to go through this entire post so that all your doubts and beliefs about marijuana edibles are answered and confirmed, respectively. So here we go:
Be wise, start small!
Consuming marijuana edibles isn’t like smoking the drug. It takes hours for edible marijuana to produce some high. So, in case you keep consuming those cute gummy bears, thinking that they are not producing any effect, you may end up very high a few hours post your ‘adventure’.
Be wise and start small. Stick to a 5-milligram serving till the high hits you. Once you are aware of the kind of high you’d experience with such quantities, you can always consumer another one if a single dose isn’t enough!
Edible High is more powerful and lasts longer
Edible marijuana, which is metabolized by the liver, produces a kind of THC that has been associated with a bigger psychedelic punch as compared to the THC that reaches your blood plasma when you smoke it. So once the marijuana edibles have unleashed all their power, odds are high that you will experience a high more powerful than what smoking usually bestows you with. In addition, the edible high can last much longer – even up to 12 hours.
Check your source
There aren’t many stringent quality control measures for the edible marijuana industry at the moment. So you yourself have to put in some effort to check the quality and efficacy of your edible product.
For the purpose, you can look at the company’s website, read online reviews, ask your colleagues and acquaintances for their feedback, etc.
Choose a safe space
Now since you know that edibles can give you a stronger, longer-lasting high, it’s better that you do not sit down with strangers in obscure places, especially if it’s your first time.
Hide your stash
Since children aren’t that good at deciding which is a normal cookie and which is the one infused with marijuana, you should always keep your stash hidden. In fact, for this very reason, politicians are going a little overboard by trying to control the shape of pot gummies.
